Premium Member You Can Take The Next Person
I sit and I wait totally impatient.
A bit out of sorts until I remember
I have a notebook in the car
Left there in September.

I run out to get it.
They call my name upon my return.
You can take the next person I...Read More

Premium Member AN OUT OF SORTS SORTIE
My me is like the moon
Scarred by hits from years of Being 
Covered in craters caused by Life
The reality of reality 
Those I wish I’d never bumped into 
Stuff enough to fill a universe twice 
The undefinable rubbish gushing out...Read More

Premium Member PICASSO in PIECES

Picasso in pieces —
a puzzle, out of sorts…
a commentary slice.
the raw rooster of war,
cocked and loaded —
a worldwide death sentence.

Smoke
The hazy, smoke-filled skies of summer I remember well;
farewell was on my mind, and the thoughts that I can't tell
rang bells within (the din was in) my mind, and I can't say
if what we had was good or bad, or...Read More

Premium Member Darling I love you
When I said I love you
We loved the whole night through
Well, we could not help but be happy, 
Love was just our joy,
I was so happy over you.

Remember I pledged my love for you, dear
I will be yours so true...Read More

Premium Member feeling the weather
drops of rain roll down my chin
what would one expect if they are under the weather
under the weather implies ill feeling  or out of sorts
but stepping out of the rain does not eliminate the blahs.

Out Of Sorts, The Heathen
A wandering heathen
compelled to wander and wonder,
clinging to the subjective notions
and half-baked personal philosophies
that evolve with each new day
and whisper with each pale night.
Away from the Kingdom Hall,
past temples more austere
and churchyards more severe
and cemeteries filled with believers.
Away from the...Read More

Premium Member Your Fear

You keep all things this, and feelings that, placed exact -
frightened that all out of sorts might render life cracked.
Like a turtle, you dip and hide inside your shell
while love and dream possibilities just slide, ignored, on by.

Sandy's Wish
Sandy woke at the break of dawn,
When the rooster crowed his morning song,
Up she jumped and quickly she ran.
"Is today the day ? " her thoughts began.

There was her father, she stood at his feet,
She let out a sigh as...Read More

I Choose My Friends So Carefully
by Caren Krutsinger & Rhona McFerran

Get back in your house,
I will stay in mine.
We won’t act like neighbors,
Everything will be fine.

I had given you chances,
Several actually,
Invited you to breakfast,
And had you to tea.

Premium Member Last Night
Quarter past two
out to the loo.
Back into bed
laying my head
thoughts come to mind
worries to find.

Over I turn
but still they return.
All out of sorts,
why do these thoughts
infect and spread
beyond my head?

Stretching my ham
I'm seized with cramp.
Now in a sweat
from pain and...Read More

Dysfunction Junction
Politicians are just like flies
Great big mouths and bulging eyes

They talk and talk and say very little
And always refuse to meet in the middle

They walk the halls, back and forth
And get themselves all out of sorts

Over some imagined slight
Maybe some...Read More

No More Evil 'Tude
Your face is getting red and puffy
While your attitude is huffy
Do not be so mean and rude
You really need to lose the 'tude
Don't be screaming in my face
You just look like a disgrace
Eyes of fuming reddish fire
Take a deep breath...Read More

Premium Member Mistress of Song
In the melody of the night
Pitter pat pit pat pitter pat
The strings move towards
The harmonious, never flat
Hark, I hear the maidens play
Their enlightenment of the evening
Escaping the trolls of the day
Saving their sanity, quite believing
In the factors of music
Playing without...Read More

I've Lost My Mind
What should I do? My mind I've lost!

I've got to work to prove I'm sane,
It matters not if I'm in pain.

I need it now, can't let it...Read More

A FALL FROM GRACE
From grace a sudden fall
So unexpected and unexplainable to all
It is said they followed the light
A sudden decision made that night
All out of sorts they said they were
Their state of mind just a blur
Unable to even think straight
No seeing reason...Read More

Premium Member Master of none:
To be Jack of all trades
But a master of none,
As my memory fades
Still, some do come.

To be master of one
Like poetry or art,
And know how it's done
Is love from the heart.

As I stare at the wall
Shall inspiration turn up?
Does my...Read More

Another
Tonight, once more, I sleep on the ground,
so that another will not have to;
another post, another round,
soon enough another's to do.

For some time, it felt like quitting, to leave, to repeal,
passing the torch a betrayal somehow;
of old friends, an old...Read More

Premium Member When The Words Won't Come
My mind just seems so out of sorts
but still I long to write
I struggle for the words inside
with every phrase a fight
Forcing creativity
anxieties accrue
For fear of losing something else
I've grown to love so true

Maybe if I had a way

Feeling Blue And Knotted Up
