Premium Member My Thoughts on Aging
Just yesterday morning while shaving my face,
I looked in the mirror in total dismay;
my once youthful looks somehow time did erase,

My once raven hair has now turned a dull white,
and under my...Read More

Pushing Up Daises
No if, and's, buts or try out your luck
No not even a maybe
But before too long I feel I'll be gone

"The Golden Chord"

I have stories
caterwauling
to be told,
I will caste them out there
no matter how bold.

They will not drown,
they’ll survive
soaked to the bone,
transfigured transporting
they’re magic
for the one who sits absent
on her Royal Throne.

Some are parked on a shelf
covered in dust
Some are...Read More

covers the open wound
we peek -...Read More

Premium Member When I'm Eighty
When I’m eighty…
I will be sweet to everyone.
I’ll think only about positive things.
I’ll smile a lot with my toothless smile,
And I’ll wear emeralds and diamond rings.

I’ll get up late if I want to.
And I’ll eat anything I like.
I’ll watch cowboy...Read More

Today is the first day of the rest of your life
Bloody brilliant I say, life is a slice
Beats the alternative
That's an affirmative
Pushing up daisies really sucks that's my advice

He did away with himself on New Year’s Day.
He lodged a bullet into his own chest.
Less than a week later, he was laid to rest.

Down to Atlantic City, you and Mom would roam.
