The ultimate test of the times:
United in togetherness
We stand tall with heads held high
Shoulders back
Chests out
Lined up straighter than arrows
With the forward mindset
Locked and loaded on
Our target for success!
Deal with this they said:
"Right is wrong and wrong is right

Liable Android
Am I just an android
Programmed by the media
My bible is the tabloids
I rely on what they feed ya

Not liable for my thoughts I thought
As I’m told just what to do
But in the middle, I’m caught quite short
Because what I’m taught...Read More

Premium Member Riddle On Mind
Invisible, yet shines,
Can read between the lines,
Transmits faster than light,
Though rated grey it's bright,
Cannot be sold or bought,
But can be changed a lot,
When open, it broadens,
If closed, it's a burden,
Encased, so can't be tossed,
But, sadly, can be lost.

Every traffic laws read between the lines,

Follow the directions and learn the guidelines,
Being fully aware is part of the game,
Every traffic laws read between the lines,

It was the point of a meaningless moon,

Vague stars shone hope to reposed past of Earth,
Dusk hath casts a crazed eve, pure hueless girth,

Joint lives of suave views have spread neath vain space,

Superstitious

Sensing the atmosphere for omens.
Signs of impending, cusp and verge.
I ping and curl, scrape to drudge up-
internal program and hit send 
and hope for good vibes return "not the end."

I have become a lightless diode.
A buzzing lamppost in the neighborhood

Wipe the Memory
I’m an addict
In recovery 
And I’m kind of glad of it
I don’t want to be
Just another G
Out promoting weed
While I’m planting the idea 
Like a G-13 seed

Read between the lines
And you’ll find I’m blinded
Beating up my mind
And my spines been...Read More

WHY I LOVED IN THE FIRST PLACE

She is my past, my future and the reason why I breathe, 
She put the smile on my face,
The sparkle in my eyes and the beat in my heart....Read More

Your Loss
I know my capabilities
But, you won't get it like that.
I know how I love
But, I can't love you like that.
You're just a dog
Trying to catch the cat.
I'll blow back your braids.
 hand you your hat.
Beat you down with a bat.

Poems: Jades from Jacinth
Like judging a stranger from clues and scratch,
Prospecting pearls of poems from vast ocean,
Picking from titles, whatso eye can catch,
Few would venture from hoary depths to learn.
Truth is: life and poetry lie far too beneath
Whilst we explore shallows, the rim...Read More

Between the whispers and the sighs

The sweet taste of champagne,
still lingers on her lips
The fragrance of jasmine oil,
slides from her fingertips

I know that I'm ready for,
whatever she has in mind
There's a warmth taking over me,
that's moving deep inside

A mystic instigation,

A lie about a lie
A lie about a lie 


A lie about a lie…
I will never have enough time, to read between the lines.
Good news everybody!  We are all out of time!
Say goodbye to your life and kiss your lovers goodbye.

The Voice of a Palpitating soul
Dear penguin bearers,

Your agony is the magnitude of my magnum opus....Read More

Meaning Betwen the Lines
Careful when you read between the lines, unsaid
Conjecture often just assumed instead
An air of erudition and suspense
Unsure of inner meaning in this stance

Ashamed of honest error and neglect
So couch a message bearer...Read More

Invasive with my mental’s

Verbal dexterity

With great literary abilities

These people who posses amazing verbal dexterity

And are advanced in profundity

And speak with a verbosity

That makes others convinced that they are academically and worldly intelligent
