He was very young, he knew that he relied on others to think, 
live and survive, although survival was an unknown planet in an

My Manic Birth
Once upon a Monday manic morning I awoke in panic,
Panic with foreboding wrapped, into a world of troubles trapped,
I felt distinctly I’d been slapped, and from my bed of warmth been torn,
My eyes went wide, I cried and cried, that...Read More

He saw beautiful particles wherever he looked, 
He saw time just slowly float by,

And the further he looked the slower they got,

We are not created equal.  That lie,
A shallow slogan designed for the vote,
Has for far too long been accepted by

Those profiles which I never win;
My healing has just begun,

The winter storms;

my birth when I was born

in the cold months of January...

Premium Member If You Don't Want Your Money
Very rarely will you ever see,
anyone who hates money more than yours truly.
"Well, If you don't want your money,"
they say to me constantly,
"you can always give it to me."
They don't even hear themselves sadly,
not realizing that money, are the chains...Read More

at the sight of daisies and smell of clover
in summer fields last saw his love

Bang! Bang! Bang!

Shattering windows and, smashing glasses 
Sending people pouring out in the street
Gun shots penetrating the clouds 
With a message that is very loud

Your eyes slay me suddenly;
their beauty I cannot sustain,
they wound me so, through my heart keen.

Unless your words heal me hastily,
my heart's wound will remain green;

We wore our meri blouses
And on stilts built our houses…
We carried our bilums so beautiful
And custom dressings so very colourful.

We wore our island dresses
And displayed our art in richness…
We played our native string-band
And drew creative designs on sand.

We wore our...Read More

Blackberry bushes barricade the background
of your immature stature.
Braided chestnut hair rests gently 
on weakly shoulders
as your hazel eyes beam a child's rippling wonder.
Bee glazed berry juice permeates your smiling cheeks.
The taste streams alive as I gaze upon you
with your burgundy...Read More

My voice to say what I believe;
To show others what I perceive,
But you tormented me in grieve.

My voice to show I matter;
To prove I wasn’t least nor latter,
But you discarded it as idle chatter.

It’s so odd,
how time expands and collapses.
In doing so, 
it scatters the timeline shimmering across the sky.
It left me crumpled,
Surveilling the kaleidoscope that was my life.
Waiting for someone to chance upon my path
and remake the sense of it all.

Prawn soup!
