The affection of strangers
To strangers we portray a first impression of our choice
We always employ the a natural tone in my voice
A stranger’s curiosity evokes our own
Mistrust clouds us, kindness is easier to reckon

Their amicable innocence is like a mirror
That cedes unadulterated judgments...Read More

When the whole wide world shrinks
I am not taking about an apocalypse
I am not talking about humanity’s ultimate collapse
I am not talking about shores battling oceans
This is not about earthquakes inhaling hurricanes

This is about the threats to everyday relationships
The rupture of the tapestry of phratry...Read More

I was born to be a survivor and a fighter.
That's why I became a writer.
As a child the physical abuse I endured.
Being a baby it was pretty absurd.

The child of recovering addicts.
Even one that still until recently would slip.

~~A Unique Wedding Ring~~

BRIDES have wedding rings so lovely,
in all colors, some with precious stones,
But you may not have mine, it's too

BRIDES really are their husband's sunshine,
in dresses traditional or new.
But I was married wearing a raincoat,
Love makes the vows,...Read More

I have a friend I rarely ever see
I can't remember when I saw him last
It's funny, but he looks a lot like me
Regardless of how many years have passed

I do recall one morning years ago
I woke and went outside before...Read More

Open minded is the word in her vocabulary
Always there to listen
Suggestions, solving and sequence is her name
Always ready for action
My one and only

The laughter we share
Leaves a twinkle in her eyes
The tempers we have
Leaves the audience speechless
The strengths we combine
Leaves...Read More

We've all been waiting for the dawn

Left to night served them right
Till the end leaked out again
You stood there in an empty square
Looking for a friend

Premium Member BROTHERS

I remember 
being maybe eight
you were my idol
my big brother
we used to laugh
and carry on
sometimes we’d
even dress as cowboys
but most of all
you were there
when times were rough
how quickly
the years flew by
but nothing
can erase
the vivid memories     ...Read More

from Russia with love
From Russia with love

Russia is a strange and great country, not quite in Europe
and not quite Eastern, they react to mayhem but seldom
intimate it; for those who are history less they won

Letter to a poet who texted my girlfriend

Dear poet
I saw your lies written on a piece of paper 
Wrapped in a beautiful brown envelope 
Those sugar coated words all in black 
Symbolizing your love for another man's love  

Dear poet
Yesterday was valentine day 
The day you...Read More

Shantelle Alone
Let’s have a shandy,
With shantelle.
Because she is rock, our stone,
In the mist of adversity,
She stands strong,
On her own.
She stands for those who have NO backbone,
She is a rock,
She is a stone.
To Shantelle,
We know welly.
Alone, she stands!

Is silent the word

Is silent The word

In his arms

The arrow that they have shot through the eye.

We were defeated there

Where he has smiled a little.

Word by word

They have taken care.

Now scared.

Losing them

Heart has made him his own with great pride.

Is silent The word

Bright star, ascendant,
Now too quickly gone,
Light becoming -
Bright as transparent rainbow colors
Made of sun and storm
Lingering on the sky 
With not one color unseen,
Full spectrum complete
Of joys, of tears, of hope -
Abiding memory
Of child becoming one
With woman
In endless summer days

Ere some three or four-odd days
Began our nature show some craze.

Nowhere did find a place to stay.

That left a pile of ashes and mire,
But no one knew whose was this...Read More

The Storm Unleashed
The storm unleashed
Rages on;
The sound and fury
Instils fear.
Where are the seafarers?
Those standing on the beach ask  
Without urgency to know.

Be patient, my friend, 
Let us peer beyond the darkness
That is spreading wide
And dreamily run our fingers
In the wet sand;

trapped in quick drying cement
locked forever on a bed of strangers coral
