PLAYING FOR CHANGE
they  play guitar
some feel like a star
the beat on can
sound like a band
theyer here and there
every where
on street  underneat
the music beat
you pat your feet
seen in sane but easy the pain

Premium Member A world without poetry
An empty look of sadness
That never bears a smile,
A malnourished mind
Aching to utter its voice,
A baby’s cry missing
The sweet tune of lullaby.

A dark moonless night
Reminiscing of shining stars,
A pensive gloomy dawn
Rising on sunless sky
Yearning lift of marigold arc
Sprinkled in magenta.

Premium Member Die-Hard Rock And Rollers


Death parodied Iron Maiden's band
with satirical mimicry,
a Twisted Sister bandstand
complete with flames and gimmickry.

As die-hard rock and rollers danced
Death parodied Iron Maiden's band,
the reaper keeping souls entranced
while maintaining the upper hand.

Beelzebub was Death's stagehand
languishing in the flames of hell,
Death parodied...Read More

the boy who lives next door

You say, I’m too far, 
towards the far side?
It’s a hazard of my left-handedness,
that I see the logic in abstraction.
Worlds lay within worlds
and colors bleed personality;
Oh, it may be distasteful
in the world of mathematics
to give a square five sides;
not in...Read More

There's the
Guy
In the corner
Strumming on his guitar
Singing of the
Good ol 2000's songs
Shaking his head
At the recent rap reps
The golden eyelet
Etched on
There's the emo girl
In all black
Tapping furiously
On her laptop
Emailing any
Cooperations
That would take her
Her sighs can
Be heard from the
Other side of...Read More

For the Drunks and the Loons
He spent his nights on the rolling seas
Eating half-raw fish and moldy cheese
He'd float into town about twice a year
To see some old friends and drink a little beer

He played an old guitar with worn-out strings
With callused fingers, he could...Read More

When I thought of music
Those the song never tuning
Musicians so are cocooning
Taking thy hymn from out my heart

Just what does this mean

Music is dead
Yet we still...Read More

Oval
Orange speckled rock
As large as a giant dinosaur egg
Sat in the scratchy field out back
Of our lakeside A-Frame cottage
Next to McLaughlin’s orchard of cherries

Where honeybees are fanned to clover fields
And Torch Lake swings below
From the corners of the hills

You don't wear boots, 
not the fancy ones...
unless there is a;
marriage, birth or death.
Otherwise, it is work shoes, 
steel-toed, 
and seldom shiny. 

Plain or plaid shirt, 
maybe a Harley souvenir,
from a ride...
But on Sundays,
mom's perfect handmade vest.
