An inspiring pile of shoes
I attended a large gathering and took some time
to observe the great assortment of shoes stacked on the racks
I saw new shoes, pricey shoes, and shoes not worth a dime
and shoes that seemed to have crossed many paths and tracks.

Premium Member icy tears

my hope hangs
with these stars
lost somewhere
beneath darkness
in the valance
of clouds
that hang
in the somberness
of january's wrath
as it rains down
its icy tears

beyond the hill
the moon hangs still

people gather,
in grief!
I can feel the deep, pain
the tears!
music melancholy,
I hear my name,
and stand!
my hands are, trembling
I read!
my forever love pours,

my arms held you,
in death!

Premium Member QUATORZAIN the name
on the verge of love,
mutual discovery unveiled
in their secret world;
lips to lips ,sealed,
hearts in passion pound
ardour's whispers sound;
need unchains desire,
pleasure's fever fans a fire,
each flame thrusting higher;
in duet's crescendo choir
realisation exceeds hope,
promise, with trust elope;

enchantment metamorphose
as love,sublime,grows

If flies in our sleep is meat
Ketchup-ing all we can eat,

You can season it with brown sage and...Read More

My TV Soap is on again tonight,
Pretty faces playing different parts,
Of course it's not exactly dynamite,
Just gals looking for sweethearts:
They're having problems finding "Mr. Right",
Can't find George Clooney counterparts,
The blokes they meet are not dynamite,
Not exactly dishy, not exactly smart,

Premium Member Where Evil Creeps
An eerie silence wrapped the bog,
I dared not move nor speak.
The chilling blanket of the fog
where evil beings creep,
conceals within tormented souls 
now stirring from their sleep,
and there with gruesome fate foretold
lie secrets they will keep.
Into the darkest night they...Read More

Oft I ponder the impulse to endure,
As I stare into the eyes of a turtle.
Start from egg bones that they are,
A part of their shelled home structure.

Them, all in a crutch, breakout as a bale,
Outlast their plight, cross a beach,...Read More

Premium Member Lost Smiles
What price a smile;
its value immeasurable?
First learned when a cheek was tickled,
long before an uttered jest,
a nonsensical gurgling grin
learned how to own a room.
Before "trying harder" failed,
sophistication and foolishness 
vied for our personal attention;
painted smiles begging to be laughed at,

I yield to Him with joyous submission.

And pursue after my worldly dream sign...

As His children saved from fire’s lake.

What's the difference…

The difference between the Short Distance's height
And the Long Distance's shallowness drawn tight
Is that neither knows the hollowness of its might
Whichever way they may look: up down left or right

My Mistress, The Sea
There is a longing to the sea
	When gazing at the glossy floor.
Time and tides roll in and out,
	Lonely waves upon distant shores.
A siren’s call from distant ports,
	Shipwrecking lips and sunset eyes.
She loves like a tempest and then
	The ghostly chill of...Read More

Do not drown in your sorrow,
This dark storm is not the end,

This cloud too shall pass, my friend;

To stop thinking of the past,
Those memories won't just flee,
Give it some time, not so fast;

Noah gathered the animals two of a kind,
But neglected the unicorn- it does not exist;
Except in legend and on a magical island,
And to go there- I just need to close my eyes.

Oh, it is a wild untamed emerald island,
