Premium Member Dont weep for me
Don’t weep for me I am past,
I was once, now I am gone,
Life’s fleeting moments do not last,
Since the first cry when we are born!

Don’t forget lessons from your past,
it lays road map for us to move on,
Do stop to...Read More

Premium Member Painted Smiles


Putting on the slap
Getting made up for the show,
"Five minutes," someone shouts
Nearly time to go.

The Big Top, garish lights,
I can hardly bear the thought,
Punters purchase tickets
My self esteems been bought.

Crowds scream and laugh
As I take another fall,
Some nights my blood...Read More

Premium Member I Can Still Wear the Pretty Ones
lacy pink with tiny rose buds
oh so pretty with wires that tear my flesh
sweet and sour

loving the look
hating the feel
I am not ready to trade for the old ones

My cups are B's
I can wear the pretty ones
Reds, purples, with satin...Read More

Premium Member Her True Love
Filtering through her heart
Moments of beauty
Experienced with him 
And only him

She runs to the window
To take another look
Her beloved has not arrived yet
There is a knock on her door

Her heart runs to answer it
Mouth clams shut 
Fearful of making a...Read More

Premium Member Likes and Dislikes
They hate me for what I am,
Not that I did anything to them,
I have not as much said a word,
But they have decided I am bad!
They do not look me in the eye,
When they see me there is no Hi!
When...Read More

Premium Member Be Warned
I did not heed the warning
I should have stopped to think
It seems trouble finds me
Every time I blink
I cannot take my eyes off you
In case you err again
I did not expect this of you
You are a pain
When you arrived at...Read More

Premium Member My only dream
My only dream

~

I took this dream
that I found at the border
Painted it black,
much more easy to hide
Went to a shadow,
just sitting there waiting
Wished it farewell
and then slipped it inside

Went on my way
knowing something was missing
Looked for a song
that would tend...Read More

THIS DARLING LITTLE BOOK
Arriving home 
I’m all alone
And feeling rather low
For as I open up my door 
Feelings of loneliness 
Permeate my soul
All around me this and that
Though I don’t take it in
But wait now 
what on earth is that
Upon my ‘Welcome’ mat
A...Read More

Premium Member The Picnic By A Lake
I will remove the dust of time and decay,
in a park by a clear blue lake;
Oh, I have not been to this place of yesterday,
but have heard about it over tea and cake.
It was a Sunday tradition to pile in...Read More

Premium Member There It Goes
There it goes
 sliding down the throws
 of market drop
just when you thought you were on top.

Look at it plunge
 sinking everyone's 401s
and to think the government
 once wanted to invest 
 in Wall Street's continual mess.

No worries
 relax don't...Read More

We'll Look Back And Smile
There's shape note singin' here tonight
And a preacher down from Dallas
We're savin' souls and gettin' right
While riddin' our hearts of malice

But first there's dinner on the grounds
Southern chicken and potatoes
Soon revival will make its rounds
After the home grown tomatoes

Tomorrow will...Read More

Money, we all need it
Money, we all want it
The root of all evil
Many people will lie for it, die for it
Comes in blues and greens
Got faces of Kings and Queens and great people

Breaking Down Barriers
It is no small act that follows
no leaps nor bounds
as we are bound
the square, white-washed walls
crumbling, no doors, no sound

but who are we 
are we not what one perceives
stuck to our one room box

we break down walls
chains
colour splashes from our...Read More

Premium Member Friendly Aussies


Sixth largest country has an Aussie accent
People walk upside down and koalas have bad scents
You guessed it
Bloody hot it is
Don't have to look far if you're looking for a friend

Little One
I remember the only time I held you
And how I found you there like that.
Bundled up inside that sling,
All tight like plastic wrap.
Frantically I searched for you,
Not knowing where you’d be.
There is nothing that I wanted more,
Than to have you...Read More

Windmills

The castles in the distance, 
are rocks arranged in order, 
to match the need of escape, 
and the ultimate inclusion...
of self-sufficiency and freedom. 

Monsters in the dark, 
some of our own making, 
most tangible even to the blind. 
Yelling things...Read More

A Joke
You words put fuel to my bones.
But that's okay because I get into my zones
You want to call me names.
Damn dude I'll put your name to shame.

You make me laugh with your behavior.
Because now I just earned another hater.

Premium Member Glanced Romance Dreams

A hasty glance and still my heart leaped up
As ever to burst thrills within my breast.
If I knew more on the ways of romance,
I might not excite like some dizzy pup.

Just staring at his house excites love dreams.

Premium Member The Classic Car In The Glassy Globe
Over eighty years ago, my father
made a miniature Model T Ford
from scratch to scale out of
paper, paint, cardboard, wire and glue.
He could cradle it in his palm
the size of a small teapot,
half globe used like a cake cover,
glossy black chassis,...Read More

Premium Member Making Sense Of It
I look for answers, with no questions to ask.
Making sense of it, where there is no sense at all.
Taking it apart, making each piece is a task.
When and where did this begin, I can no longer recall.

How do I find...Read More

“Nobody likes a clown at midnight.”       Stephen King


CLOWN AT THE ABYSS


Darkroom abscessed 
with neon blush and black-blood —
sunken eyes look surprised
to find oneself in a dank dungeon.
Fecal stench, not humorous,
screams on each bold painted-on...Read More

The world in its glory, glittering gold.

The greater good, lesser evil; look at all these wondrous people.
