Premium Member Dale the Brave
My life flashed before my eyes as I sat in the driver’s seat
I clung to the wheel for dear life
my face was as white as a sheet

Would this brave man named Dale 
live to tell the tale?

By Franklin Price

The highways and the byways of Brevard when I was young
Were void of any four lanes, no interstates among
Highway 50, was the only road that went out to the west

Premium Member To Be Simple
When did simple become a thing of the past?
Did we just let it slip away?
Too bad we couldn't make it last.
We could really use it today.

Life, is complicated at best.
It doesn't get easier with time.
Life weary, you will get no...Read More

There
There they sit
The objects on the beach
Washed by the tide
Waves of chemical solution
No Earth like water
For this is an alien world
Full of familiar things
Yet as different as moon and sun
Seen in real time
By a space probe
Itself alien here
Sent from Earth
Across...Read More

When this woman was born all those small years ago, 
Her beauty was a sign of the times,

Her beauty shone through in her eyes,

That were displayed in beautiful sparkling snapshots,

Waters Deep

Waters Deep

Come swim with me in waters deep,
With swish of tail and sparkling scale,
Through the caves of wishing wells
Where dreamers dream in rich detail

Below the waters breaking waves
We’ll ride the tides to nether lands
Down beneath the breathing clans
To depths that...Read More

Ups and Downs
we all have our ups and downs
enjoyed in lesser detail on the upswing
and greater granularity on the corresponding
and subsequent regress to various terrors
the trick is to not obsess and get conned
into the notion of a salvation
delivered by the hand of...Read More

Hollow
I can feel myself slowly shutting down,  
it feels like insanity really.
I can hear the beat of my heart echo in my ears, almost like i'm hollow...

I'm Just Getting Started
The cold dark night is behind me, I still feel it's chill
But I'm just getting started
An unfamiliar path, dividing into an unfamiliar fork
Right or left I have not one clue
A tremor of excitement begins its upward trek from my toes

Do Not Date a Writer
Do not date a writer,
As she will write about every detail. 
She will write about how she helped you with your meds
At 3 am when she could-
And should have been sleeping. 
Or how she held you 
When you needed it...Read More

Premium Member I Loved Them Before They Arrived
“They’ll be corndogs,” Grandma muttered.
We cousins laughed, having never heard of these relatives before today.
“Corndog company,” Aunt Mina agreed. “They were ridiculous last time.”
Last time was twenty-four years ago. 

“They are goofy, mongrels,” Grandpa whispered. But he winked.

God Sees The Trials
GOD SEES THE TRIALS

And He knows of the load we bear o’er life’s long, rugged miles.

and more is never less
Untold response
as moistened lips entwine
Intrepid is your slightest touch
Feel my face 
beneath your fingertips
body yearning
for the next impasse
Sweat and musk
shelter in the shame
as language
becomes her name
and detail seems to fail
Grunts and moans
replace the tenderness
and more is never less...Read More

Premium Member Question Anything and Everything
Don't doubt the truth,
But confirm the truth before proceeding
Anything can be used as deception
Distrust your fellow human friends and family
Without exception
Never completely relax at all times
Unpredictability is certain
Look in all directions
To not be thrown off by misinformation
Observe even the smallest...Read More

It was only an old photograph;
But your black heart thought only of you,
You slipped my wallet from my purse,
Shame on you, Shame on you!

Your charges on my card stopped so quickly,
In a matter of minutes I’d phoned, theft found.

Leg twitches for legatee
Quivering lowest limb
namely mine little feet
medication side effects
analogous running dead heat
most often while fast asleep
the missus claims thrashing feet

easily mistaken for epilepsy
disrupts her pleasant dreams
claiming legitimate grounds
for kickstarting divorce
bachelorhood amenable
versus her furious

expletive laced outbursts
crying out loud

mandating, accentuating...
