The dating site all fired up

the neon light on the lap dancing bar
It beckons you inside

Don't  want to know the time

Waiting for something to happen

Waiting for you to come

And here I am still waiting on the wet lawn
Daybreak stares desperately in my eyes
As the elements thunders in the...Read More

Blood Clot and Boycott and More
Blood Clot and Boycott

Rather than crossing lines and boycott,
We did have a drink  called blood clot,
And then hardened;
From jail pardoned;
After we would finish it, hit the spot.

Green spyder
When I first saw it
	in the dark corner there
where none would see it
	hidden away from sight

dark green was its color
	in the darkness hard to see
with few bright glitters
	catching the light

smooth flowing curves it had
	without harsh lines breaking the flow
all was...Read More

Premium Member Tracks of Sound
The sounds of a train
Whistling across the mountain
A tune in harmony
Sent though the trees

Wheels of deep slumber
Each note singing to me
A horn of mystery
Traveling down the tracks

What do you carry
Upon your box cars
Wheels of fortune
Different colored cars
Or could it be...Read More

Glad that you called
But I'm on the highway right now
I can't get your call
The need on the speedometer
Swaying to the far right
I don't see you in my rearview mirror
Can you catch up?
Not on the highway to hell
Or heaven 
That's for...Read More

My thoughts like always, all about you
Wishing that you would give me a call
Telling me that you're not happy at all
You're cold and lonely and need a hug
Can I come over and give you...Read More

Premium Member Are you Right or are you Wrong
Our opinions are not the truth or the facts
When you come to a red light you stop it’s the law

If someone gets shot in the head they will die
That is an opinion not a fact

Premium Member Red Light
Ominously yellow
Tranquility shatters
With its explosion
A hanging threat
Against my spirit

Energy saturates
My body
Excitement builds
A dash for
The intersection

The engine races
Spurred by my
Heavy heel
Flight begins
Stampeding forward

Yellow changes
Danger Red
Breathless now
I speed underneath

An alien horn sounds
But safety once again
Restores my judgement...Read More

Sittin' at a red light
Playin' with the head light
Nothin' heavy on my mind

Stuck in Arizona
Thinkin' Desdemona
Wonderin' what I'm gonna find

Could it be a real blonde
Maybe feelin' real fond
Of a country boy like me

Never find romances 
Without takin' chances
Guess I'll have...Read More

Driver of Victory
A fast drive through highway 
speeds a country landscape. 
Music blares loud, gliding on wheels,
with windows down, worries dwindle.

A fantasy flies in a pastel sky.    
A bottle of soda opens
a cocktail of champagne,
to drive off that bridge...Read More

The balloons rise to their feet —
jamming figure-eights, skating
euphorically, confidently-hued,
sunny disposition of a marguerite.

The breathtaking discourse of song —
blooming a bouquet of memories, smile
stimulates his eyes and sparks my pulse,
plausible that the classroom’s where I belong.

The fairytale scene follows me...Read More

The Kindness
The sun
sliding toward the west on a ruby strip,
the tired sky sighs
sunlight bouquets,
open dawns from dawn
they start to draw their shutters,
from the subway, a great crowd
salty and grieved,

It cuts its way from the ground,

We are wearing pajamas today.
We are super heroes, butterflies, unicorns, and mice.
We have slippers with long rat tails.
Mine are gorillas with red light-up eyes.

My zebra suit has lost his tail.
Pulled off long ago,
But do not worry....Read More
