When It Struck 11
When it struck 11, I sighed in relief
When it struck 11, I haven't felt grief
The time kept ticking on and it wasn't brief
And I'm so… patiently shaking like a leaf
Vigorously feeling vital everyday...
Every minute...every second...come what may
Immensely feeling somewhat manic...Read More

Premium Member Start out small
A tiny seed can grow into a tree
Our universe was built with particles
A flower's pollinated by a bee
The smallest words we have are articles

When teaching concepts always start quite small
The best advice I ever got in school:
Whoever starts out 'big'...Read More

50 Words for Poe: Vide Cor Meum

Look into my heart
see it’s sinew ripped
in the hole daisies grow
and death renews
unfurling crushed blue
from their
black soiled
deep dead 
purple sleep

Vide Core Meum

the earth of me
forests roar
barefoot walks 
through broken glass

The Second Chance
Opportunity twist and twirl in a dance,
Blank shadows mimicking each movement,
Giving the moment an elusive chance
To embrace the renaissance for fulfillment.

Time turning the sentiments of the heart
Into the ceremony of spiritual purity,
While the worse of evil falls apart,
An innocent crown...Read More

And fan the flames of defiance

Premium Member Blowin Smoke - a rant

Pontificating pin heads
laboriously tongue lashing
mandatory attendees
pundits, preachers
oligarchs of oratory
empowered by mad scientists
in twisted mind laboratory.
If everybody gets a bite
of a sandwich never ending
the masses will be sated
and we’ve controlled our spending
if everybody works for free
--that is except for you and...Read More

Stand beside the flame
Stars cascade like sprinkled salt
Over a sleepy town

A dove cries out
For a lover lost
To a hollow heart

Memories fade
Over the tapestry of time
Eventually folded over

Fan the flames
So dawn will never rise
For a sleepy town...Read More

I'll burn for it
We fan the flames
We fuel the fire
We count the days
We chase desire

With the bottle in my hand
And the pills on the counter 
Music playing in my ear
The voices growing even louder
While the hair on my arms
Starts to stand a little...Read More

Satisfaction glowing in its light

A Rainbow Incensed
I like faint fire I feel
fueling me with fervor
for far off places without you

I like sweet scent of spring I smell
when you fan the flames
ignited by your carefree hand

I like warmth seeping in

with unpredictable energy

Let the rising,
Angry cord,
Rip through you,
Feel the ecstasy of the metal,
Let the pure loathing roll through you,
Try to look fierce,
And promptly trip over your own feet.

Deep breath,
Focus on the anger,
The dark metal pounding through your head,
Lose yourself in the ecstasy

Smoke Signals
If words could envelop fire,

I’d whisper softly into a quiet

note and let the pyre in my

lonely coffer spill out it’s smokey dispatch.

Inhale -Fan The Flames-
Keeping my head in the fire.
Plotting my next move.
Temperature gets hotter.
Can't find my groove.

Fan the flames.
Inhale the smoke.
Slowly suffer.
Life's just a joke.
Demons on the rise.
They're in my head.
I can't get them out.
I could be dead.

Why do I live like this?
