What if Christmas was every day
Cheerful greetings for everyone
Hope and joy the currency
Ugly pettiness put aside
Smiles on faces young and old
Kindness at every corner
Warm thoughts of 
Charity and goodness
No more lonely hearts
What if
What if

She had a dream
Of seaside escapades
And seabreeze in her hair
This little lonely girl
Landlocked at her desk
Utterly determined
To make her dream come true
Took a fistful of crayons
And brought to life her pony

I drove down the boulevard as I did a thousand other times
Passing by the aged blue-gray house - the bachelor's pad across the street
Hunkered down like storm clouds in a mist of yesterday's legacy 
And there he stood....the soulful captive,...Read More

Something Old
The waste from the cattails showed up
heavily against her green velvet dress.
Her mama was gonna be mad,
for she'd taken on extra sewing all last month
just so she could afford to buy it for her.

She had already decided that she wouldn't

It says in the bible
that Jesus was the word
another name for the words of a man
are the thoughts of man

It says in the bible 
that Jesus was there in the beginning
so the thoughts of God 
were there in the beginning

Premium Member in a field laced with nevers


Sitting alone 
in a field laced with nevers
that sunlight avoids
as stars fade from view

picking a clover
of unlucky petals
found on the edge 
of a soft summer hue

Seeing a path
leading up to tomorrow
winding its way
past the frown on my face

different scenes

Premium Member Bleed Upon Blood
My soul shattered by the bullet of betrayal…

Shivering shards sliced throughout my sullen system 
Nights nagged with naissant nightmares
Mornings moved as malignant monsters 
Trust twisted in tabescent thorns tearing within me
Silence stabbed my skin over and over since
I ignored prayer,...Read More

A Cardinal Now Calls Out Through The Trees
A cardinal now calls out through the trees,
Hoping its lonely presence will be known,
As the branches slowly sway in the breeze.

The bird sings with the hope that one of these
Days it will no longer sing on its own–

In Our Silence
There we stood in silence and like a cancer it spread,
an abyss appeared and consumed us with our silence,
the once young and carefree us disappeared,
our time when words were not needed, yet still spoken.

Words were all we had left and...Read More

Premium Member this sad winter day


My heart is in pieces,
the fog still resides
I can’t find my smile,
don’t know where it hides

This day is so lonely,
it’s dark in the sun
And puddles of worry
have only begun

For after just thinking
and wishing instead
I wish I could take back

Kajal Ahmad translations Kurdish
by Kajal Ahmad, a Kurdish poet
loose translation by Michael R. Burch

My era's obscuring mirror
because it magnified the small
and made the great seem insignificant.
Dictators and monsters filled its contours.
Now when I breathe
its jagged shards pierce my heart
and instead of sweat
I exude...Read More

The hand steadies
Screaming in the mind
Eyes burn in holes that chill
A sight that tries to break a life

Heart pumps the blood around veins of life that must live
Memory explodes in anger
Shaking, trembling fear hits, damn it hits.

The hand steadies

Indelible Parting
Should I wear myself off in tears?
Should I get myself lost with beer?
Should I dare consult the seers 
for the loss of a comely dear?

Can I live onwards with this fear
that your voice I may no longer hear?
Will our friendship...Read More

Lonely Hearts
By Lola

We wasted time
For days and days
We let it flow
We waste away

We’re broken toys
With plastic hearts
We search the space
A place to start

Frozen in time
Our hands are held
We’re despatate kids
Our kingdoms fell

To crumble down
She never knew
What we had lost
I’ve fallen...Read More

Premium Member Not That You Asked
Not that you asked,
or ever would feel free to inquire,
yet perhaps you grow ready to listen
to a voice inviting exit
from your,
and our,
long loneliness,
isolation so shelled-over,
so embedded,
you are sure we are each and all
unredeemably alone

In our envy of others,
the positive deviants

She was dancing her truth, and spinning in circles.
Her teacher was fun, named Mrs. Van Werkles.
At seven-years-old, she had life by the tail.
She passed a man carrying Saturday’s mail.

Hello Mr. B, she yelled, waving her quick little hand.
Causing a smile...Read More

Is a love without end
My dearest child
My hottest mess
You drive me wild
My source of stress

My mini me
Inside and out
You won’t agree
But I’ve no doubt

It’s truer than true
Opposites attract
But the things you do
The way you act

I see your pain
I struggle too
So much the same
Me and...Read More

All the times you cried

My love I hide
