Like Wingless Birds
I can tell you about the elongated nights.
The pain and agony endured to the soul.
The hammer of reality that aims to chisel at my pride

Adonta ta mele
Running cracks of lead flaked paint, spiders across the front door like a grandfather's
forehead. 
Its hinges squeal from years of inattention and forgotten maintenance
Floor boards moan a song of dismemberment and forgotten age
While musty gloom...

The Thief
I was young when you started stealing from me,
teasing away my freedom, corruptibly.
I despised you as soon as I recognized you,
Like I was born to be repelled by your presence.
And yet you kept returning, like...

Lines reign rectangular beyond widely 
sombre dour density of inhabitants 
Living rendered responsible behind wisely 
secure doors definitely insure us

Neighbours harbour unfamiliar stories
Measureless textures hold untapped instruction
Sectioned protected fences forbode inquiry 
Composite dismissed in driveway's...

New Normal
Choose chivalry in the new millennium
Hounded by instant institutions
Vying in the main to inhabit any cranium
Prone to proclivities prohibiting and inhibiting affections.

Inject zeal and steel
Into backs bent on the Facebook platform
Where puny posts reel
In discomfort...

To realize the beauty of life as it be

What was the Human Error
Was it the death of the child,
playing in the busy street,
where traffic frequently exceeds speed limits,
in neighborhoods like this one,
even in summer evenings when children gather
with stick and ball?

Or was it the single mother,
who allowed...

Insomnia
Insomnia; a sly sprite inhibiting
the subconscious making it freeze
in mid-motion.
Stillness of the day regardless of
time the mind struggles to release
itself from the clutches of the
scaly paws of the sprite itself.
It seems to marvel and laugh...

Once again we’re wedged in a wrinkle
of time in our lives; a wrinkle that can’t
be so easily ironed out and pressed away.
Yet the ironing board of solutions remain up
and challenging steam continues to gush out;
however,...

Fear is like a lost wallet

Once you clutch the ball of it in your hand
You see it there, full and clear, 
It dares you to lose it again, so you can seek to find it...

Cannibal Lies

American Daughters of the Civil War Revolution
are so madly in love with their Bluish-Gray metal sons
Incestuous desires borne of slave tax oppression

Give to Caesar whatever tribute he crown heavy lay on you,

Today
Today

I am going to let go
Relinquish worry
Set free doubt
Let faith guide me
To pastures overrun with heart’s desires
Today I live in the present
Absent of all those things inhibiting living in the now
Boldly dreaming up a future...

All alight
Inhibiting my inhibition to be red-faced
Still, in wanting to be noticed 
My eyes gave chase

I try not to be overly pretentious, though
My actions can sometimes be...

Thoughts of Miracle Man

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,...

Words Can Be
A Barricade Or Bridge
Written: by Miracle Man
5/13/2020

Words become as brushstrokes on a painters palette,
spread as paint, at the volition of the artist.
Whether smooth, colored, sincere, or acerbic,
Those intended to hurt are always the...
