I was not going to go to the party…at all. 
I had no plan for the night. 
I was okay with that. 

My friends would not let me alone. 
They made me dress, and come with them. 
I hated that,...Read More

Premium Member The Creek's Rise
The creek rise rolled in mixed with fog
Dampness coats shrubs and trees
Morning Doves sing through it all
Yet no sound from the bees

Another bird sings its sweet tune
Can't place its unique name
Though there are Mockingbirds in flight
And house finches almost tame

Who am I to stop you if you resolve to kill yourself?
But before you quit the game, roll the dice one last time.

What have you seen in your life till now?

Did you perceive the sweetness of first love?
Have you kissed...Read More

I hear the alarm and I think what? Not already! I have been up and down all night.
My usual pattern, I am used to it in many ways, because nighttime is my quiet, creative, thinking time.

Just A Little Bit Of Hope
Let the day begin with just a little bit of hope
Let the hope begin to grow, so every time you grope or struggle
Confidence is yours, and doubt is only for a dope
A tug'll open all the doors of life with...Read More

Mind tricks
Tricks of my mind...
More intricate than a spider's web. 
Consume me,  use me,  then leave me to wonder-
When will I be me?
The person I was meant to be... 
No medicine can set me free, 
Free of chains that...Read More

Drug of Choice
She’s got moves like a dancer
out there on the floor,
she screams like a banshee
and sleeps like a whore,
you’ll have no defense once
her sweet lies are deployed.
She’s got eyes that terrify
and electrical touch,
she’ll take what you give her,
then give back too...Read More

LAMENT
The passing of a friend approaches,
One who's long been near my heart.
Incurable!  No treatment options.
I'm heartsick nothing can be done.

Once white, now gray as death's cold skin,
Threadbare, failing fabric sags,
Elastic hangs down like a fringe,
Helpless threads are no support.

THE ONE
Darkness falls around me 
Vision cloudy I can't see
This is  nightmare can't be

Waited eternity to meet
knocked me off my feet 
Baby Don't let me go

Together dream of us two

Premium Member I Dream Of A Better Day
Tears cannot wash my sadness away
mourning memories of yesterday.
And yet today nothing can be done
so tomorrow seeks a cleansing sun.

Falling in love’s a lesson in trust
for passion’s often fueled by lust.
And lately I'm feeling led astray
by the sexual games that...Read More

~It Is Time~
(The Monotetra)


Time just arrives, and time just goes
And leaves right under our noses
Time is made of, all memories
And it just flows, and it just flows

There is no time for us to lose
With time we can never presume

Avalanche
Avalanches

They have  no enemy  

Not an ounce of bloodlust

No regret

No discrimination between evening

Day

Night 

Neither the sun nor the moon


And yet they are so reckless

The nameless mountain, that frightful thing

So quick to pulverise the living

No reaction to the brooding...Read More

High tide

Life's Best Hold
We all need to hold on
to something or to someone
left to ourselves we're helpless
on our own nothing can be done

When we have each other
we're stronger and better
each one can get hold
of the other not just by letter

No matter what enemies...Read More

DEADLY EPIDEMIC

Untouched Souls
You said that you would wait for me
Despite whom you were with
That you would leave them longing 
And we could finally live.

Yes… I was much younger
And didn’t know what best
And yes I kept this secret…
And played it close to chest

Premium Member The World Without the Self
Between conjecture and classification there is
observation, experiment, data (collection and analysis),
statistics, calculus, and a good guess
about God's intentions - probabilities, fractals, chaos and complexity.
This is the thunderous city.

The Tale of the Opium Tears
Eyes that cry in anguish, 
Uncertain and alone. 
Seeking some solution 
And searching for a home. 

When we used to play as kids, 
In contentment’s warm embrace, 
Was the smile I saw each day 
But a mask upon your face?...Read More

Save me
No one cares. Nor understands. 
I am trapped by my own thoughts. 
Never ending torture. 
A whole of never ending darkness.

Everything is just trash!
Your life. Those people who you cherish. 
Everything you've achieved. 
A pile of worthless trash!

Looking inside yourself is no east task
things found there aren't too nice
but you can't ignore for ever
ignorance will eventually charge a price
