Beware the Bugbear
I've heard a very nasty tale
I'm told it's likely true
that if you are a naughty child
The Bugbear might eat you!

The Bugbear- what is that? you say
it sounds harmless enough...
But names can be deceiving and
they say this goblin's tough.

He's been around...Read More

Please Please Bring me Flowers
Please, Please,
Just bring me flowers,

Flowers that smell of Jasmin
of Passion, of Roses,

Whose Scents,
Feel our hearts with faster beats,
With waves of love,

Or Please make me,
A Pillow of Lavender,
To rest my head on,

To bring softness
and gentleness,
To my darker dreams.

For we so tire,

Remember the day
mom, when I was born
it was in a Canadian snow storm
Remember the day
you held me to your heart
and whispered that you loved me
Remember the day
I walked for the very first time
and you said I was a smart girl

Why do we do this dance we do
You hurt me and I hurt you
Yet neither of us will let go

The Greatest Heist
I have intentionally not rhymed the lines, because I don’t want to play with the words. This is what happened and there is no coating for it. There was none for me.

…

True colours. What true colours. On the pursuit to the truth, i found that it doesn't exist. My world crumbled one pillar at a time. I'd still be okay but it was you who was knocking down the pillars.

Premium Member The Dying Rose
The rose can't brave the strength of agile time,
Which thwarts her pride and takes away her grace;
She harbours hope to rise in a new clime.

The rose had scoffed at that yonder wild thyme,
For it was not endowed with a svelte...Read More

Have Some Pride You've Been Rejected
She dumped him, he wouldn't have it,
stood outside her house all night,
not just once it was a habit,
forcing her to make things right.

Told him she wants him to leave,
he got angry nasty and cried,
he couldn't just let it be,

Yielding our lives to Him along joyful dedication.

Premium Member Home is Not
Home is not an iron fence
or a nation’s bullish confidence.
Home is not the salt we sweat
in conflict, nor the traveller met
with distrust and intransigence.

Home is not immune to time
or compromise; no sacred line
partitions it from otherness.
And home is not the...Read More

On a vanishing isle of heather

Fence and the fox
Cattleman's pride
who put the bounty
on the head of the
Danger City Cowboy?
somebody said something
and those Varmitts responded to it.
Otters curiosity.

But, now you rest in this old room-
     alone upon a carpet, worn; 
surrounded by neglect and gloom-
     abandoned- woefully forlorn.

What joyous times you did command!

Mr Brightside
Suddenly the tunnel has gone from around me, 
the light at the end is light that surrounds me, 
there’s sounds and life, 
green blue and gold shines bright, 
dreams too, there’s chance, it’s nice. 

I crawled that tunnel for 13...Read More

Jackal and Hyde Pride
Your passionate, unneeded pride...
Is hard to swallow, so I’m waiting for another tomorrow
Going along with the rowdy ride
Still feeling so low…but I must stay high, you know?

I want to glow bright and grow and not feel this hollow…

The lying mask in perpetual pretense,
with many more layers of painted reference.
The mask that everybody loves as genuine in a blast,
and the dreadful breath from the face of the foe as he passed.

Equanimity
Equanimity – mental calmness, composure, and evenness of temper, especially in a difficult situation


Euphoric moments
Balanced by the darkest of nights
One without the other
Loses perspective – like a ship without a beacon of light

Our lives can flourish
When we acknowledge the pain

Row Houses
Newfoundlanders can row, you should see some of'em go,
when they puts a punt on a pond. 
But I don't like this mess, all this Race foolishness,
I'd never seen so much goings on.

Closing doors
In denial is a serious sickness
Watching every move I make
Simply because a word has been uttered to me
A minute time passed
With the hope that nothing has changed
How delusional of me
To have believed in an unknown situation
To have been sacred
Simply because...Read More

O speak such sweet words thyself,
Leaving aside pride and pelf,
Words that keep you in cool mood,
Others may as well feel good.
