Premium Member A TAEL to TAIL

Early in the MOURNING I usually went out,
To ride my bike on a FLOUR filled route.
BUTT because of the WHEATHER, today I changed,
A nice ride in the evening I had arranged.

I found myself riding THREW...

Premium Member In the Wild, Far From My Home
Ain't it wild the things that have passed?
The things we thought would change,
the things we thought weren't gonna last?

(remember picnics on the park grass?
that was awesome)

Movies with friends, weddings on the sand,
rock and roll concerts...

We want to rub him out, blot him from the face of the Earth,
Feed what’s left to the worms and let them claim his worth.

A Mafia Comedy
Poet heads up note: This poem is rated pg for some violence.

Born into a mafia family,
with his umbilical cord in a knot,
he took his first breath
as his Mom lay on the cot,
his Dad was big,...

Nothing to hold, yet
Strained by light, becoming a shadow, hiding in that shell
Crawling in the dream a brief reality

Hell no I said
I laugh because it's funny, you know?
But for some reason unknown to me

Unholy Persuasion

Always the weapon
and never the truth
the woeful prediction
of life's terrorism
shall always end in death

Ah such a bastion
for the ammunition of fear
to afford the devils consumption
of every soul living here
in tortuous redemption
those switchblade centuries have controlled

Fallen Warrior
Fallen warrior
I miss you.
You were my homie I 
talked to when times were
You were there to cheer 
me up when at times I was 
You turned me friendly
whenever I was mad.

I love you

I found the power to turn beauty to a pig.
As we sit at the edge of the bridge
Do you expect me to jump?
I found the power to turn beauty to a pig
and my methods are out of control.

I only pushed you away cause I...

Switchblade Tragedy
Instant friction
Lost in a fiction
A certain malnutrition
Of the world we live in
Can't stop this rejection
Familiarization is a complication
A mirrored reflection
Down to the core of perfection

These are my switchblade tragedies
Deal on a dime
Don't know what it...

Void Where Prohibited
waking rakes your thirsty dreams.
you laugh thinking you pushed
the nightmare aside.  swallowing
down the bone-stealing juice,
you match your daily attire.

gritting or smiling, you hold fast to the talon-fists
of surviving.  it's 120% you give
to the...

Premium Member Workplace harassment
Workplace harassment is rife, alive and well, 
Occurring too often in this pseudo company.
Derogatory, condescending words roared, inches from your face, 
Sounding like a battlesque symphony.

People in charge making foolish demands,
Then usurping workers places, employing...

Random, Unintelligable Thoughts
RUT- that's the title,
Insanity- I'm a disciple.
You guys make me think,
in ways untried,
I'll treasure this site,
until I've died.
And maybe even after that,
How many lives for this cat?
Survived cancer twice,
And though it was not nice,
Worse pain...

Hell Is For Heroes
I ran the blade under my thumbnail,
scouring dirt with the tip,
and stared aimlessly at the street.
Switchblade thoughts clicking,
metronomic stilettos on wet paving,
drawing closer.
In this sleeping wakefulness,
this illusion of life,
she never arrives;
waiting, as you do, for...

My soul is not for sale
I will be victorious at the end of that tale
I’m not afraid of apostle of hell
It is when they heard me walls of Jericho fell

I disagree with grand design

Here Comes The Night
Here comes the night, wiping his bright brother from
the face of the earth;
bleeding like treacle through the concrete enclaves of
bleached stone suburbia.

Torture tents dispense no fear, for I know of release through
slicing and dicing;
a nick...

Perhaps  spouse  pluralises to spice

I thought about Killing You part 1
I cant lie I've thought about killing you,
There's nothing genuine or even remotely real in you,
Be honest there's some twisted excitement,
some sort of thrill in you,
I would fire every bullet from this gun,and walk over...

I want to get a guillotine
to cut off your head
I want to shoot you
while you are asleep in bed

I want to stab you
with a switchblade knife
I want to murder you 
and disappear into the night

In A Perfect World
In a perfect world, no one would be depressed
hopeless, or opressed.
People could just be who they are,
without others thinking they are bizarre.
I could walk down the street without being afraid
of a man coming at me...
