Premium Member TRUE LOVE
What is true love? It’s certainly up for supposition 
There is no specific answer…no universal definition…

If there is one truth that can be told…when all defining’s done
It’s that true love…whatever that may be…is different for...

Premium Member Reason and hint
I was feeling restless and empty
And I was feeling low.
All I believed was a white paper
An ordinary pen did do.

To ask first - who are you?
Fathomless emotions, eager to...

Walking with me as a fire that purifies everything

Fierce and bold
Love moves with great force
Love enforces itself beyond the rules
When love suspends the rules
It will go beyond the ordinary!
When love suspends...

Transport For London Shaman
The TFL Shaman- A Journey Home.

Raindrops trickle down the misty train windows,
Obscuring views of coloured graffiti,
Works of passion sprayed on to embankment walls.
Bright colours splattered onto neglected structures,
Wild Statements of art,
Arising from the urban ashes...

to medical appointment
me, the obliging husband

Premium Member Glad to be Caught in Our Zebra Pajamas
Amazon delivery man tiptoes up driveway
Pretends to not notice my zebra pajamas
When he stumbles over ordinary words
I feel a bit of satisfaction that he cares more than I do.

Used to search for friends online
But now I just don’t have the time
To waste on these most silly tasks,
Cause for what end, my brain asks;
Most likely I shall never meet

Premium Member A King Who Neither Prances or Preens
He is the one, the only King.
All play-mates leave him quite alone.
No matter what morning doth bring,
He tends to play on his I-phone.
Stabbing red buttons, click, click, click,
He is so regal, and oh, so quick!

Premium Member After Image

Searing, disruptive, gravitational, 
the face came into focus from too far away,
long before anything at that distance had a right to, 
monopolizing eyes.  

There was an audible gasp from the passersby.

Modern Churches
I was walking down the sidewalk
of a big-box shopping center,
lost in my thoughts, as usual,
barely even noticed the thing.

Tucked back twenty yards or so,
I first thought it was a warehouse,
squat, and ordinary looking,
'Cavalry's Victory Church.'

I Hear the Mourning
I’m defeated, I’m pathetic. 
One step forward, two steps back. 
Ordinary circumstances change,
A broken man longing to die. 
The stress passed for him,
Now unto others. 
But life isn’t fair,
Never has been never will be.
