The Voices In Her Head
The voices in her head
The voices in her head
Here she lies
Trapped in this place

Till she dies
She is trapped in a deep and dark abyss
This isn’t a fairy tale, she can’t be awakened by true love's kiss
Someone has trapped her there

I sat quietly pondering your time of arrival
Day or night morning or noon happy or sad
The last conversation was strained innuendos 
Of selfless pleasures displacing your heart
And I cried for me for you for loss of us
Pictures broken glasses thrown...Read More

you turn me inside out
leaving room for very little  doubt
if any, you take me to many
places in my mind
a few uncomfortable
but most sublime
with every word you speak
you help me reach my creative peak....Read More

Premium Member Her demon
She's twisted and torn, turned inside out,
With yesterday gripping her foot,
She's prevented from enjoying any of today,
From living the life that she could,

But it's not the law, friends, enemies or foes,
Nobody takes her to task,
Instead it's the ghost who walks...Read More

you ruined the rain for me
I wish that I had superpowers.
So that I could read your mind. 
I'd violate your thoughts,
As you violate mine. 
With unforgiving relentlessness. 

I would take control of you, 
And I'd make you a puppet.
So that you would know...Read More

"Wishing Well"

Plain Jane blew her wishes 
down a wishing well

Lit long white bless'ed candles
dipped in holy water 


Crocodile tears from Hell
Witches hold hands together

Stand united
show and tell

Plain Jane 
knows her subjects inside out

Sisters plain and simple
holding hands

O Soft Words!
Gently unwind the strands of thoughts.
I had wrapped them around tiny rosebuds
Shielded by a hundred brown sharp thorns
That had stabbed my buried consciousness
And drew stale blood to wash my brow
To remove the dated dirt and thirst
And cleanse me...Read More

What is regret? 
A memory 
Of a thought 
A feeling 
An emotion 
An action 
An inaction? 

I’m really not sure. 
But all I know is
It hurts.

The memory
The thought 
The feeling 
The emotion 
The action 
The inaction.

It tears me apart
From the...Read More

Sky Balloons Purple Parade part 1 of 2
Tetris colors shine between the blocks of life
Building blocks of rainbows interlocking light 
Odd shapes connect to speedy geometric streets         
On candy corners where stop signs sit in red and white
Hang out...Read More

"Midnight to 3.33, Morning Kills"

He said, 
“Go to where the poets go
Love rolls wet and sways
Intensity wraps itself inside out
and somersaults its legs backward
to open a way
It’s kind of burning hot 
like Summer burns 
bare feet on 
powdered shells
there it...Read More

To Know, Therefore
Self awareness,
freedom’s chain

Mirrored judgment,
harbored pain

Descarte’s premise,

To know oneself

The Author Has The Final Say
As we walk along this world's way
there's a path mapped out to go
we don't know what's our exact path
but we just follow from head to toe

We think we know best what to do
forgetting there's a higher authority above
the one who...Read More

So Vaguely Clear
I remember…

It was an awful oppressing day,
The clouds were dim and the air was frosty…
I couldn't stop myself, I ran to my room and died. 
Tears were streaming down my face as Niagara falls in mid-summer.
As I looked into the...Read More

Households unhitch, hulls creaking -
the sound of storm-lashed rigging
as foundations founder.
Where we once believed roots gripped bedrock,
boards bob in the swell.

Bed-springs gape. A chest-of-drawers
turns inside out, the face-up exposure 
of our everyday innards.

Even as mail-boxes are torn away,
we refuse to...Read More

Black as Black and White? or Unicorns and Rainbows?

Broken fragments wandering in space,
A hundred million could be its place.
Each broken part fleeing helter-skelter;
With no hopes of falling under the same shelter.

Suddenly hit by a gust of charge -
Do they form into a rock so large?
Or is it just...Read More

In Mind
In depths of mind we despair
chilled within the barren dark
we look hard, inside out
for answers to unknown questions
but none are really there
it's us that makes it disappear

no wrongs that can be right
alone we're left to fight
thru it all, until we...Read More
