Premium Member Who Ate My Halloween Candy
It was you, little bro! @#$#%$#&^*&^%%$#@@#@...
Why! I’m going to…
Dip you in battery acid, and then boil you in oil, while eating fries…
Tar and feather you all over, you miserable little runt…
Drag you across town with a fast horse named Hop-a-Long…

Premium Member Born the Last Day of October
I was born the last day of October
with bright blue and noonday skies.
Among autumn sunbeams of amber 
my infantile yearnings seemed to rise.

With bright blue and noonday skies
leaves were like gold bullion that lay.
My infantile yearnings seemed to rise
as children...Read More

Turning the page where the margins are crying

The Art of Loving Books
I love books and fantasy stories,
Majestic tales of fictional worlds and glory,
I live and travel from page to page, 
I shift from old to young, no longer feeling my age,
Listening to enchanting lute tunes played by Kvothe,
Plotting with Kaz Brekker,...Read More

I'll Name It-
In the sportive abode of emotion-

The heaven-
an alluring fairytale garden,
by hearing this word happiest pleasure comes
in the belief of every breath!

The hell-
a terrible fictional place,
by hearing this word acute anguish comes
in the silent tour of every vein!

If you want heaven...Read More

Premium Member Watch Out, Ladies
I live on Bella Boulevard.
Some call it “Singles Street.”
For residents, life can be hard,
and many long to meet
someone. They wish to be discreet.
These ladies will be caught off-guard,
their faith in men so sorely marred,
their equilibrium j—jarred
by one with tongue so...Read More

Premium Member And His Name Was---
Mr. It, epitome of cool,
Arrogantly strutted through the school.
Ogling females struggled not to drool.
One by one, for him they played the fool.
Mr. User was aloof and cruel.

Some resisted, much to his surprise.
I was one. Though tempted, I was wise,
never rendering...Read More

Premium Member Town Children
Ten children have been snatched from our small town
this century from unlocked homes and yards.
We never go outside to play unless
a grownup goes. Sometimes life seems so hard.
At school recess is twenty minutes long.

Premium Member NO, I'M NOT KIDDING

As I reminisce
through childhood eyes
I see vivid images
of my family home
where bumbles would bounce
Our garden seemed to stretch for miles...
perhaps that’s why
I made an odd birthday request
for a nanny goat as a pet !
Taking her home in dad’s VW...Read More

Premium Member Ba Ba Bad Shepherd Boy
Watery eyed thoughts came,
Zap! Pow!  a short circuited brain.
Inward turned burned ocular pain,
too many thoughts to restrain 
I’m a cheap sheep making my mistakes again.
Smell my seared wool going down the drain.
Ba, ba, blackishly wishing I was right as...Read More

Sweet roses bloom on Mother’s day
I’ll cut a bouquet for my mum’s room
She breathes their scent, I hear her say
‘I just adore their sweet perfume,
such vibrant colours lift the gloom’

Time has told

people's hands unfold 

to show who they really are 
and some are left with scars 
some belong  behind prison bars 
others gaze and meditate towards the stars

How It Downloads

My day-brain opens its hamster cage;
mind finds its eyes. 
I am still downloading.  
I have a whole fictional life to remember,
 I might see myself as an unwritten poem.

Open-mouthed I wait, uncollected, 
for the drool of being.

Premium Member The Crashing Parisian Poet
There was a poet from France,
Who thought he really could dance!
Up onto the Eifel tower he went, 
Not walking straight but really quite bent.
Whoops and ooh-la-la!
Onto the French earth he fell..
Oh, poet dear, your very last tear.
Pooling and gleaming, ever so...Read More

the first day I saw you,

is a family portrait, like Colonel Zagloba*.
And don't forget about a mug of golden ale
emptied in the morning for good humor.

Paint me old grandpa and military equipment
