abuse, allegory, allusion, discrimination, happiness,
I shall not envy the upstart's polished gait,
Or wish myself as old knights in diamonds
Hued to bamboozle familiar souls and eye,
Flattered by aping pals and ersatz blondes.
For swanky gait soon in quiet slumbers lies
In darkest gloom beyond...Read More

The Best of Slaves
allegory, america, conflict, endurance, friendship, racism, slavery,
I'll master you
And you master me
And we'll live in
I'll take the whip
And you take the crowbar
And we'll see who gives
It's been working out so far
In the fields of dishonor
'Mid the seeds of deceit,
They erect a plantation
They can't seem to...Read More
analogy, humanity, identity,
Sometimes, when I look in the mirror
I see my brother’s face,
I quiver with recognition.
As time takes me,
so it takes my eyes, I reason,
a trick of the mind.
Sometimes, when I’m working with my hands
I see the hardened hands of my...Read More
What is the Nectar
Most of us can feel,
A disturbing pain of
Negative empotive ache
In some form
In our lives.
This can happen to us so much.
Eventually you may be
Annoyed, bored, deppressed
From that disturbing ache.
Than we say:
"Life is painful, boring, bad."
Don't be worried,
Anybody can think these any...Read More
allegory, allusion, character, encouraging, hope,
Comparisons are unerring things at worst;
Every common ore yielded for shinier gold,
And tepid junkets given up in apt forfeiture
For tolerably pricier carats unsullied stored.
Far less treasured lots perpetually stand
In shrouded paths to more pleasing deal,
And more...Read More
What is Fear
deep, emotions, fear, life, psychological, truth, wisdom,
What is Fear?
Is it only an emotion?
Or is it our inner self looking into a mirror?
Is it a way of life?
Or a way simply to survive?
Is it a way to dominate, control, over-power?
Or a way to...Read More

didactic, 1st grade, angel, beautiful,
Didactic description of feelings
Sunrise in the rain
Birth of rainbow in darkness
Depth of joys that makes words lame to whisper
Flawless imperfect figure
Sweetness swaying my heart to leap
Dark skin of deep lucid thoughts
Thou art my sire and desire

Rising very early from my bed this morning

And pray that I may be like...Read More

The Mask Has Slipped
angst, betrayal, career, destiny, guitar, rude,
I'm disillusioned of this modern world
This quantum, promise-palter singularity most days leaves me hollow like empty Technology
Picture an old colour tv- tubeless workless-
abandoned on an urban bombsite; that's me
Deep unsettled forebodings haunt my sleep, itself a fitful deal
I come to Pos' ey Soup' ers Rec' ip' e Res' cue

christian, word play, writing,
to carry across
an impossible ask
Who would want to be that unique
abuse, analogy, anxiety, blue, childhood, confusion, hope,
It must be quite a burden for you,
Being so unique, so special,
That you couldn't possibly have anything in common,
With mere mortals like us.
Sitting on your pedestal all day long,
Must be quite a chore,
And as for that special diet,
You must be...Read More
MARRIAGE a unit of one
a unity of action
abuse, allegory, betrayal, hope, wisdom, world,
For want of full virtuous zeal oligarchs thrive
Against deserving clamor for brighter ideals;
And perennially trampled commoners groan
Under weight no inured villain distantly feels.
Bereft of real fighting energy better humans
Give in to the more determined aims to slay
Life's fairer...Read More

Our Brains not designed for it
analogy, anxiety, blue, care, cheer up, community,
However we came into being,
Commenting on anything and everything,
I am sure was not factored in,
When it came time to give us a brain.
When it became obvious that our brains were about to implode,
Computers appeared on the scene,
And one would have...Read More
