Premium Member If You Don't Want Your Money
Very rarely will you ever see,
anyone who hates money more than yours truly.
"Well, If you don't want your money,"
they say to me constantly,
"you can always give it to me."
They don't even hear themselves sadly,
not realizing that money, are the chains...Read More

It is high time
It is high time we gave credit
To those men who are not violent to women and other men.
To those men who turn away from hate and self pity.
To those men who have died trying to protect women.
To those men who...Read More

I witness I see On my pillow
Surround sound guarded by the universe
A picture prompt of
Skies gray in places black
Other areas white
All around
I stare as is grasp
Deep inside of myself/themselves
I envision across my bed room
Lights turned OFF
what of the figures
Those miss-figures

Our life is defined by choices,
Improved by the ones avoided 

Each day making me,
I want to believe 

But what if I had chosen differently,
I wonder what would have become of me

How much of me would be the same,
Or would I...Read More

Head down
Head down

I'm still walking.  I'm still talking.
I'm still trying to find a way for this life to mean something.
I got no direction…just using self-reflection.
Trying to find a way to see me under closer inspection.

I wanna be in love, but...Read More

Premium Member Humanity of Horses
My internal experience of depression
today shames
external ecology of elation,
all I might know as warm extended family
of profoundly peaceful impressions
still bare surviving
at end of this slow-fading thread.

This morning
one Epictetus sentence
speaks of blaming left-hemisphere dominant GodVoices:

"People are disturbed not by things,
but by...Read More

Premium Member Astral body

Tenderly I held him  took him in
As though we touched each other skin to skin
Dying is what everyone must do
Even when it splits the Me from You

What we took for granted  every day
Had its end like any mortal’s...Read More

They first appear propped up
at the end of the bed naked as if 
they had just sprouted from my ankles.

I rarely give thought to my feet, 
much less the feet of others, aesthetically, I mean, 
unless attached to polished marble,...Read More

I grew up a child of the ’60’s
together my life and the hippie movement dawned…
now when I look back at that time I wonder…where have all the hippies gone?

Those long haired tie-dyed idealists who walked around with our feet bare
who...Read More

Premium Member How Is It Goal In
Liverpool showed very early they have a goal 
How very cold? 
But the Londoners got off the couch 
And stood tall without a slouch 
They scored one really quick 
Giving the clock not much time to tick 
As the first...Read More

Premium Member Stirred But Not Shaken
Two drunks converged in a crowed bar
And sorry that I knew them both
And be one patron, long I stared
Looking out for each I really cared
As both of them bent I swore an oath;

I helped the one, and deemed it fair
He...Read More

Premium Member Do Not Swear Around My Parents
It started early for me - using words sailors are supposed to know
My parents had no idea where I got them.
I figured it was my last lifetime 
When I was a pirate.

I could cuss with gusto at an early age.

Premium Member Grandmothers at a Wedding

The bride was sweet, the groom was an unknown entity.
Not old enough to be married, she was barely twenty.

I protested all the way to the church, my cries unheard.
My husband told me to settle down, not be a nerd.

But she’s...Read More

Dear Ed: I don’t understand why

when I’m brilliant, devoted,
one hell of a poet!
Yet you publish Anonymous. Fie!

Fie! A pox on your head if you favor

Edge To Extinction
When gallons of water fall from the faucet,
my mother reminds me to turn off the faucet when not in use.

But as I count the last few drops falling down towards the drain,
I think about the animal that ate endangered,
and getting...Read More

Farewell Fifth Grade
We leave the fifth grade reunion, go to another school
to a place that's much calmer

No more tag or hide and seek or 
gathering in a circle to play Duck Duck Goose.

No more random stories,
from rolling the story cubes.

No more hanging...Read More

Of all the men who gambled there on the hill that day,
I felt I’d be the winner when I began to play.
And sure enough, it happened!  I shouted out for glee
When all the lots were cast there, the...Read More

God kept us for each other; that’s plain as it can be,
And now we two are lovers--it is just you and me.
We may not have the money that others spend so free,
But we have each...Read More

God Sees Me Through The Blood

I see my many failures, the wicked things I’ve done;
God sees me pure and righteous through the blood of His dear Son.

A chance of a lifetime
Today I hoped to achieve something great,
Something many would consider a heroic trait,
Giving plasma to those in need,
With the hope that the doctor's treatments would succeed.

Taking me back after a two hour wait,
I realized there were some things which they...Read More

Premium Member Sibling Of The Same Mother

We must not take everything for granted
Freedom of speech, your voice
Poverty and war
ravages in large parts of the world

What is important to focus on
A dialogue with respect,
whether one agrees or not

One must listen and learn
as sibling of the same mother

I have been on a long journey-

Missing Group
Being pulled from all sides in different directions,
with force so strong that can move a mountain.
These are ropes made of ego,masked with righteousness,
scented with entitlement and pride.
confused,worried,a little lamb,running and searching for haven.
Saw all the beautiful and colourful things,and ran...Read More

There's a fever on your lips tonight
sshhhhh......I know I'm right,
it's not narcissism, it's love's necessity,
lay into me gently, speak with naked trust,
tell me the truth of your heart,

Softly spooning into one another's lives
we teach each other the feeling of fidelity,...Read More
