Premium Member Oliver, a Boy
When I was young my mother's hand
Led me through a joyful land
Where neither war nor hate exist
Nor something more I must resist 

Where nothing but the night is black
And black is never dark for lack
Of something bright or greater light
But...Read More

Thoughts of Miracle Man
On 10/5/2018

As my tomorrows lessen,
My today’s find me mired in a sea of pills,
Which extend life, while inhibiting my living it. 

Others utter the words, can’t, shouldn’t, and don’t,
But these words only...Read More

I hasten to place much faith in idle talk 
Reality tells me i am never getting out of here
Rather I am destined to die here 
Beside these other condemned band of brother's 
This sorry War friends has forced upon me...Read More

Oh Feathered,

In my dream's 

You spoke to me of Change ?

And Guardian Angels ?

Yet nothing since has changed 

I am still the same 

No Lion's I have tamed, 
Nor horses spirit's I have broke

Life is idle talk

Fallacious gossip idle talk
Soggy crackling on the Sunday roasted pork

Plunge me into an inspiral Vortex 
Without a point or cortex 

Scarlet letter's 
Like love withered curt roses
Dance behind the misty tree's of palace courtyards

Bewilder me with remorse 

Why?

Little nuggets of wisdom not coated in sugar not creamed by distortion

Impossible Love

Lap of fancy fills with flowers,
Just to think of her tonight,

This is not an idle talk,
I'm in good humor tonight.

I would not reveal my secrets,
To enchanting eyes of hers,

But she took away my power,
I could not resist tonight.

Beauty's garden I'm...Read More

THEY WILL SPROUT
THEY WILL SPROUT
The seasons came….
The rains came….
The ground we tilled…..
The seeds provided by the government we sowed,
Our hopes swelled…
As the gardens we watched.

The season came….
The time dragged on…
The grounds remained as they were.
For the seeds to sprout we waited,
As our...Read More

“Past Old Strangers”



I met a man with piercing eyes,
Whose cool façade was mere disguise,
Whose soul reflected sadness there,
The like of which I can’t compare.

Whose massive frame seemed somehow small
For one whose stature stood so tall,
Whose glance I felt afraid to...Read More

We may have been seeing reflections belonging to yesterday
Perhaps they were awakened musings buried deep in memory
but something was causing our emotional footsteps to stray
upon a romantic journey that led down a path of rediscovery

Words fail
Meaning blurry;
Nothing rhymes

Upstairs apartment
Renovation works;
Pneumatic floor blast

Idle talk punctuates
Not much meaning;
Bizarre thoughts

Sonic headache
Disturbing pounding;
Head time-bomb ticking

Constipated movie
Suspicious assumptions;
Character flaws

Dragonfly pond
Lotus flowers bloom;
Mud bed ascend

Brief excursion
Exploration;
Abrupt exfoliation

Beauty delights
Ample assets;
Tipsy tryst

Dazzling flights;
Breezy patterns

Cursive scripts swirl;
Verse outburst

Even when I lie down and feel mean
For this life is gone dim

I had pondered over complaining about my life yet again
Filling up this pages with idle talk
Sharing past and present experiences
Politicizing my perception of reality
Writing about friends i had failed...
Relationships i had lost
And opportunities i had taken for granted
Then i remembered

He Stops my Heart

Under my nose existed someone
Who would care enough

Shut Mind, Open Mouth
Shut Mind, Open Mouth



When he has a shut mind
When wisdom he cannot find
He then opens up his mouth
To prove himself uncouth.

The way he runs up his lip
When taken the frothy sip
It’ll throw him into the deep
Where, forever he’ll weep.
