Premium Member In search of love's end
Did you ever love someone madly, though never fully understanding why?

You shared a few days in the morning Sun, and loved on warm nights.

I would bring you the moon and stars if...Read More

~~A Unique Wedding Ring~~

BRIDES have wedding rings so lovely,
in all colors, some with precious stones,
But you may not have mine, it's too

BRIDES really are their husband's sunshine,
in dresses traditional or new.
But I was married wearing a raincoat,
Love makes the vows,...Read More

God has birthed this in you
He’s given you power to pull through
Made you from the dust and dirt
Provided you all of your worth

You are worth more than rubies and gold
You’re not

Premium Member Ambivalent
I’m both painfully shy, and brazenly bold.
The push & pull of opposing natures
that form my existence.

Living my life between the lines
Cold and factual yet scattered and emotion charged,
Faltering, yet ever steady;
loyal even when in full run.

Shuttering and stuttering with precision,
accurately...Read More

Premium Member A Shining

A full-gorged moon opens its illumined glare.
Ghost lights flood the dens, burrows and nests
of all creatures,
a limpid dementia swirls blood-red clouds 
in predatory eyes.
 it enters bedrooms, cellars, attics
creeps beneath crawl-spaces.
It follows us into slumber
raises the bones of shipwrecked dreams,

Mean In Green
I stood on the corner this morning
Absorbing the fresh morning air
listening attentively to the morning news
That has everyone so upset and confused
The morning sun is just peeping out

Stirring lazy bodies out of bed

I was staring at your picture
For some time today and
This is what I imagined:
I walked up to you and said
I need you to take my hand
And the other one too.
Pull me to you with those
Big strong arms of yours,

Love Letter From The Soul LV

The other side has called
her winter's finally born
the geese are flying east
the pain has left her mark

X's no longer stay
they just go
as the hurt 
forages on
and eats their own

too much 
it's too much

burning darkened soot
pulling out the roots
it's death

Premium Member THE LAP OF LOVE
Where do I sit?
On the floor at your feet.!
I cannot readily pull up a seat;
Joining the crowded
table of your life.
I cannot see where
there's room for one more.

This love I have for you is too big
to be petty.
Too grave to be...Read More

Your Pull
Your Pull
by Michael R. Burch

for Beth

You were like sunshine and rain—
begetting rainbows,
full of contradictions, like the intervals
between light and shadow.

That within you which I most opposed
drew me closer still,
as a magnet exerts its unyielding pull
on insensate steel.

He was eastern born in a small town.
And loved being out in the wild.
He fished, hunted, could track a deer down.
At the end of a good hunt, he just smiled.

But there was something not quite right.
A place inside he couldn't...Read More

There’s a child in me

That child in me crying on the ground,

The siren saw the purity in the couple’s heart leap.
So she swam toward the boat to exact a win.

So they would have to pull their appendages in.

At ten, I have composure to maintain

Give me some pliers so I can pull out my tooth.

A house misses you.
You don’t live there now.
It’s delighted to see you.
It pulls you to it’s curb.

You happen by.

There are the violets.
Once grown in a window.
They are now, long...Read More

He was off again managing 
Someone else’s chaos
when she stood looking up
at impossible elegance,
rounded into ruby perfection, 
dangling from the twisted branches.

She knew the moment he 
told her “No,” she...Read More

Blue and Gold
Blue and Gold.

I'll keep the blue flag flying,
With its stars of gold.
A symbol of true friendship
Between enemies of old.

I'll keep the blue flag flying
As we hurtle into night,
My country burns with shameful hate
As we slide down to the Right.

Alone and lonely i scale my path
And hence forth I am alone
A lone worrier
Going back to my den
And live like the old
Dragon with no companion
In a lost jungle
Will come to be a friend
Whom will i ever open my platter
Of thoughts,like varieties of fruits
In custured,
I alone will...Read More
