Under the towering bridge, beside the tulip garden, next to the curvy ridge, sat a soldier awaiting no one.

Do not waste more time!

It is fire and spit,
thin water and urine. 
All lies from city folk. 
The swamp smells, 
it is dying. 
No new water, 
just the old cesspool inlets, 
all the outlets, blocked. 

Cockroaches running,

Mixed emotions I hold, by seeing how bold his nature was shown
My best friend, why did...Read More

Premium Member THE RING
Promises expand into lies :
Is the jaw strong enough 
Three decades stretched out now deceased ?

Not even vodka removes the taste
The sickening realisation ;
Nothing paints over the stain of such deceit !

Sections mingle 
Cold dead discrepancies 
Parasites of peace
Gnawing at...Read More

Young Girl
If a young girl cries in her bedroom, 
And no one’s around to hear it, 
Does it make a sound?

What say of the echoing of her screams,
Her whimpers in the night,
And her fists she'll use to pound.

Disregard her furrowed brows,
Her...Read More

The Winter Hours

Cold is not my friend. 
It loves me, 
but it is not…
a mutual affair. 
Slowly, artfully, cruelly, 
my joints begin to freeze up. 
They ache in the morning. 
They are soar in the afternoon. 
They are painful later...Read More

In the deepness of my solitude
is when I dare think of you
Locked inside my broken heart

Forlorn our love by other hands
always our love forever stands
Like a fish in a dry pond

blue, green and red, 
yellow and gold together, with bells.

They have been good,

Many were also empty. 
Some were...Read More

Dear lily,
I have been here for a long time

Why you go away from my heart.
My broken heart have been blow in the place

Trial and the Judgement
Thrashed her life in that vicious fuscous night
Tattered her body in that mucky verdant site
Shattered her dreams in that bloody wicked plight
Four feigned civilized animals, enjoyed their bite. 

They waited their turn to deracinate her
With ears and heart kept fastened...Read More

Dear Santa
This year what I want for Christmas is simple and true
I do want a few tangible things 
Like some boots for heading through the snow
Or like a 2nd car that doesn’t even need to be new.
But what I want the...Read More

Waste No Time
We were friends for years
Then you alarmingly disappeared
With no notice, no warning
To my heart, it's jarring
It's pierced my inner core
I won't be seeing you anymore
We always planned to have that drink
And carry on about the good ole days
I know you're...Read More

Another Heart Break in My Collection

One Hundred Christmas Dinners
The birth of Jesus is the cause for us to celebrate.
No Frankincense and Myrrh; we’ve learned a different trait.
Some celebrate in splendour the manger and the hay -
driving home to join Jesus and are missing Christmas day.

I comb my hair in the chilly air,
and I curse the moon, 
and I curse them skies

That our paths do not meet 
that I was left astray,
That thy love for I 
turned cold with the days.

From My Mother's Grave
Mother, I have heard with my ears, 
My father has told me, 
What sacrifices you performed in my early years, 
Wherewith your own hands;
You caressed and fondled me. 
You have planted the seeds of morality; 
You treated me as though...Read More

Know Your Worth
In your opinion
I’m not even worth a ‘hi’.
You left your profile on private
To evade the public eye.
I’m not worth a pass. 
To even see you. 
Your likes are getting to your head. 

Why do I try?

You managed to keep everything...Read More

Your blue eyed angel
What do I say
Where do I even start
To comfort a broken man with a broken heart
Completely torn apart

God called your blue eyed angel
And had to break your heart
We do not know the reasons
Or why you had to part
But I keep...Read More

Premium Member Wish list of the elderly
Born alone,
A lonely life,
Lonely at death
despite the family.
Cost of living is so high 
That you are loved
For what you can give
Not for what 
you might take.
My wish list
Does not include 
Items of physical 
but such things
As love, laughter
and affection.

The woman and the pup
And with the first rain's smell, she withdrew into her shell.
With no sound other than her dog's paws on the cold ground,
Her warm soup she began to taste, her loneliness she couldn't really embrace.
As tears her nose did touch, she...Read More

Suicidal Note
Tried again, I tried in vain
Far away he went so far
Train of thoughts I need to forget
Upon which my life is hanging
Forgive me, the cork of death opened.

Tainted Translation
severed passion bleeding
mystic mucus. Brooding
punctured passion pruning
sour sorrow's verses.
Torn tainted translation
met smothered elation

void, castrated cubicle
damped by debacles;
lofty lust's oracle

callous hoisted heat
slew per licking
moistened mystical memories

felony familiar eyes
feign vile vice.

Slowly now, Its Time
I always thought I was a good person.
Thought I was thought-full.

Empathetic but just.
Kind but careful.

But you showed me the monster,
That hears screams but wears blinders.

Where pragmatism grinds against the degradation of a dream.
And where time lost creates a river too...Read More
