THE WILD GOOSE CHASE*

I accidentally let one loose
did you see that thing vamoose?
It gave me the slip, did you see?
Now that thing is awfully free.

I walk on pins and needles, friend.
Trying to find, I twist and bend.
You ask why I...Read More

Betwixt
Betwined
Beneath the tweed
lay the nasty pin
It pierced my toe without a need
My foot had lost again

Of all the places I should step
I landed on this pain

Your Purpose
We're all searching for a purpose
That makes this all seem worth it
A life that is fulfilling 
Pray that God is willing

Spending time high and low
Taking life to and fro
On pins and needles in our mending
Hoping to sew a happy ending

Premium Member On Pins And Needles


From childhood memory I've held one fear,
needle phobia, a plight, I hold dear.
Just a simple task held by others,
In greatest torment, fear, my heart smothers.

Required vaccinations and childhood shots,
left painful memories and small round dots.
Dentists will think they are clever...Read More

Premium Member Who is Your Neighbor
My neighbor is an older man so ghastly and thin
with his creepy demeanor and a toothless grin

On pins and needles to the mail box I run
looking side to side uneasy and high strung

With a slap of his screen door on...Read More

Empty Is Where The Heart Is
Empty heart
Wheres the love?
Empty soul
Could hear a pin drop
Empty life
Filled with lies
Empty hope
Was it ever there?
Empty happiness
Full of fears
Empty home
To busy walking around on pins and needles
The only thing that ever seems to be full is your glass of shame

Fickle

Fickle so fickle this life is at times,
You can't press fast forward nor rewind,
There are so many things to entertain the mind,
You seldom have time to relax or unwind,
Before the ticking clock sounds its chimes,
Fickle just fickle so fickle I...Read More

Under the Knife
In surgery, it’s anesthesia
That provides the buffer.
The patient is oblivious
And doesn’t have to suffer.

The family, on the other hand,
Must sit around and wait
On pins and needles, wondering
About their loved one’s fate.

It’s easier to be the one
Who’s underneath the knife.
Awareness is...Read More

Never to leave at all
I am the prisoner inside my own home
My spirit is broken

Premium Member I wonder if I will ever be well
The more I try to keep in the more I feel cold
Let me open up and let the story be told
My childhood was really rough
I cannot believe I made it through all of this stuff

Pool Of Darkness April 18 2010
Jumbled thoughts fill my head,
none of it makes any sense.
Walking around on pins and needles,
my life is so intense.

Relaxed I could never be,
I worry all the time.
A racing mind, I can't make it stop,
craziness, a single word used to define.

Artie the Ant Meets Freddy the Fly
Lil' ol' Artie the Ant,
Mosin' down the ant trail,
With his three pairs of shoes,
Happened upon Freddy,
That wasn't good news...
See ants gotta' follow a specific trail,
They can't branch off on their own,
And Freddy was blocking the way,
And Artie hadn't an Ant...Read More

Night terror
Walking in the trees one day
I watched the weather change
A figure approached
White as a ghost, with a hand behind his back
Walking at angles odd to me
And humming a tune of sorrow
Trekking to a meadow of gloom
And daring me to follow

Looking...Read More

Your Soul
(Oh how I) love your soul
It's see through
How you rip me to shreds
And put me back together again
On pins and needles
You get me started all over
All over you
You caught me
I was wrapped in your lust
You breathe air of fire
I am...Read More
