The Sound of Heartbreak
It’s the slip of a name. 
An accident, you claim. 

It’s the breath drawing out of me,
And red is all I can see. 

A deafening silence heard,
Tears fill my eyes, vision blurred. 

It’s quiet like a church mouse,
Silent screaming through...Read More

Possessed by an Angel
My demons were in a slumber
I finally saw grime on the glamour

My demons were asleep and done
When I saw goodness in everyone

I confronted hatred and jealousy
With kindness and generosity

I overwrote scars of enmity
With shades of benignity

My red eyes intoxicated by...Read More

Beware, beware my friend of the evil eye,
It is mere jealousy that others see and spy,
So always have one in your home,
Often seen in a Church dome,
An evil eye can bring you harm, make you cry!

In "On Fire"
Naomi Klein reminds us
win/lose capitalism invites a collective action vacuum
and abhors restrictions on money-accumulating freedom,

But Earth,
a healthy global climate,
healthy ecosystems
invite regenerative win/win climax
of cooperatively nurturing health systems
and abhor inhumane definitions of "wealth"
as privately-held and autonomously sequestered currency
natural resources

In the Valley
In the valley where
Life is lived as intended
Happiness is widespread
As far as any eye can see.
Joy and love reign
As peace and blessings
Fall from above.
Minor disagreements though
Few and far between,
Met with acceptance and
Understanding are 
Respectfully resolved with
Knowledge and equality
For the good...Read More

Because Of Just Being Rohingya
In Myanmar,
We wish to be writers.
But our pens have been snatched.
Because of just being Rohingya.

In Myanmar,
we wish to be doctors.
But we have been banned from higher study.
Because of just being Rohingya.

In Myanmar,
we wish to be businessmen.
But we have trade license...Read More

I see it
I don’t like it
Not sure what I’m dealing with 
Lack of interest
Or simply
The reflection
Of the disappointment
In their boring little humdrum life

Written: by miracle man

Does another's success cause you any pain?
Does envy have a place to rest in your heart?
We should be happy when another gets gain,
and in their rejoicing also be a part.

Being Content

but God alone is aware of what is best.
Sometimes when we feel life has us on the ropes,
It's just God giving us another life test.

Don’t need permission
Or approval
To set free
What’s inside
Stirring one’s
Brings vibrant color
To a universe
That’s rich
In hopes
And dreams
Giving wings
To passion
Oomph and sparkle
Loving the exhilaration
Of living a life that’s grand

You will find it exciting
You will find it exciting
There is no mosquito bite
Only their shadows swim around

Only its sores occupy your belly
Fingernails do not grow long
Only its memory hangs above your head
Jealousy does not knock at heart’s door
Only its bitterness...Read More

Premium Member she didn't mean it
like flowers
in a zephyr of spring
she danced
in love's blossoms

she loved him
as much as any
inexperienced lover could
with all of her heart

she'd even die for him

oh how she giggled
...teasing about a text
from an ex lover
in a cute little way
inquisitively waiting
for his response

The Devil Laughs
An arrow from the darkness…
rejection finds its mark

The sharpened edge of jealousy,
its point straight through the heart

The bow retracts in shamefulness,
its string left slack and loose

One shot was made, a cursed fate
—the devil laughs anew

Billy rode the cowboy beat
In fairs and rodeos

And a wedding dress with bows
In a sacred ceremony
With a man in cowboy clothes

Yes, I support the president
I guess that makes me bad
Deplorable, an idiot

The freedoms I had lost
I’d vote for him again, again
Because I know the cost

A friend is not a friend

Sometimes friends are like 
Important yet worthless in

When the going gets tough, 
They are in need not indeed

Through the tiny spot of my eyes 
We share dreams and aspirations
But jealousy lives...Read More

It started out I told you a secret..
It was not to be repeated.

By giving it a plotted twist.
If only you'd kept it to yourself..

Premium Member Believe In Reprieve Of What You Grieve
When cast into the dark recesses
Of guilt, poison spilt you cannot retrieve,
Believe in reprieve of what you grieve,
For as the penitent confesses,
So a glimmer of light may shimmer to which you cleave.

If jealousy in grotesque form,
Thin-coated, harsh-throated monstrosity
Should erupt abruptly...Read More
