Commited
Why do some people commit suicide?
When is enough enough
What makes them decide
To finish living
Before the end of their ride
Why do they want to come to an abrupt end
Nobody knows what's around the bend
Perhaps they are under too much stress
Have feelings...Read More

In poetry
And we think we know you

And I smile
Seeing us as friends

You honor me 
With comments
And I like you more

Savoring our truth
Keeping our memories alive

He spins around and faces me, his legs plant down just right.
No longer will he run from me, he’s fixing for a fight
He reaches down and so do I, I grab my trusted Glock
I raise it to his chest real...Read More

Premium Member If Dogs Ran for Office
Dogs leading the world makes me giddy with pure happiness.
There would be no deception, but lots of friendly reception.

Dogs leading the countries, means not a lot of barking.
Only when they feel threatened, and then secret service would know.

I know I am being witchy
My glare is strong angry even
But do I stop?
No.

I am not ready
To get over this bad mood
Holding on to it
For silly reasons

Just to be able to...Read More

She sang her pretty songs.
My pickle is the bitterness in my heart I hold
Is more or less a cancer for my soul

Premium Member My best friend
What exactly is a friend?
What does that word mean?
Is it a magical connection?
Can they really be seen?

Can they mend a broken heart?
Put it back in remission.
Or do they only come around
under certain conditions?

They can make you smile
and they can make...Read More

You never come when I need you
You never come when I am thinking about you
Your never come when the sun is hot
You never come when I am gallivanting in my pretty frock.

Numbers
I've just counted up to ten
And missed that number out again
It's between three and five
And it rhymes with more

I have not got much to report
I know the Chinese lose their breath
In their language this...Read More

THE CAPTAINS GAZE
So many nights
When I close my eyes 
You’re in my sights
I can’t disguise 

The pull, the swirl
Captivating breeze
Of an island girl
The thought, oh please

Let time stand still
sun do not rise
The things I feel
Under evening sky’s 
My one and only

The Chinese Official
I awoke to the pungent smell of perfumed wisterias;
Bursting from twisting bines hang masses of purple blooms.
 In far away Wuyuan I know Springtime sits upon many
    Crowded terraces;

Premium Member Life in Deep Space
True freedom can feel like an exquisite jail
Our inhabited space bound by bars we drink in.
Child’s nutrition once favored, a lap dance now passé,
Our restaurants change with new owners, or chefs find
New orbits, food loved fades as children leave home...Read More

When the sun starts to pale in September,
I remember the things we did in May.
Ere our flame became a dying ember,

We didn't stop to think as time flew past
That love cannot...Read More

The dew lays thick on the October Morning, 
The last for the advent of frost.
With my blanket I sit on the front porch swing,
And wait for the paper to come.

Which cover the...Read More

Beware, beware my friend of the evil eye,

So always have one in your home,
Often seen in a Church dome,
An evil eye can bring you harm, make you cry!

The coffee in my cup is bitter, 
like the bad taste in my mouth. 
I have been up too long, 
to take back the night,
as the morning has come, 
and it is bright, 
beyond my dreams.

Premium Member The Former Ghost



In the kitchen she sits on a three-legged stool.
She died in the living room,
her heart burst, and out flew
all the skills of her hands.
Now she cooks the twilight between the days,
the dried fruits of yester-years.

I watch her thoughts take shape,

I don't love you anymore
I don't love you the way I wanted to, 
And you forgive me for lying. 
All my love for you has flown by, 
The whole love shudder passed. 

You never know how it will end 
And our feelings are no...Read More
