Red Roses
Red roses today are on sale;
For Valentine’s Day they won’t fail
To impress all the gals
Who are more than just pals
And a hint of romance will prevail.

But the sign announced 55 bucks
For these flowers considered deluxe.
Maybe buyers don’t care
But to many...Read More

Premium Member Yet I Remain Faithful
Filthy and foul I found you, 
garnished in grime, 
drenched in dust,
polluted in your own putrid blood,
orphaned, alone, helpless.
Pity overtook me to love, 
to cleanse you of your stench, 
to let you live.

As you came of age,
I made a wedding...Read More

White Tiger

Giant beast, 
un-caged power of destruction, 
taking apart my life one day at a time. 
Ever-growing and living off, 
the suffering of my apparent lack, 
of everything. 

Your secret has been revealed. 
It is no longer possible, 
for you...Read More

Let's Play
When you see me
And your face lights up
You say hi and you hug me
And you squeeze my butt

Something crazy happens
When I hear your sweet voice
Every particle in my being
Starts to dance and rejoice

I start smiling profusely
Till my cheeks start to...Read More

To Be A Man
Dressed in a black suit
In fancy black loafers
In snazzy black dress pants
With a little handkerchief in my coat pocket
With my hair slicked back nice and neat
With my mouth in a wide fake smile
You'll find one thing not pretty and shiny
And...Read More

living the dream
My soul has been sleeping for quite some time,
I dreamed about dreams that were lost for a while.
I was vanished by fear and felt nightmare in my life
There are moments of renunciation that painted me black.
God sent an afterglow allowing...Read More

Finally free
Walked away
To calmer water 
Escape the world
Building in secret 
Here one day 
There another
Freedom is plan

Closed to my past 
New identity born
??New name??
No more carry the world 
on my back,
Tired of giving my all 
Giving my energy 

Soul searching 
Healed...Read More

Dear Dad
I don't feel well at all
I feel entangled in this chain of sadness and hopelessness
And everyday I am drowning
There is pain against my temples and chest

I am constantly escaping
Yet seated still
The sight is quite amazing

I do not want to talk...Read More

Atomic dawn
We might have lost a couple battles
But We’re still here to fight the war 
All these soldiers fighting and they 
Don’t know who they’re gunning for

And the killings indiscriminate 
Shooting at civilians 
Laughing as they murder 
Cause they never heard...Read More

Premium Member At Western Washington State Fair
After traffic backup and teen crack ups,
my friends and I park and toward today’s lark,
through gate, stamp and bracelet I race
greeting other friends with new to make.

Amid fried onion reek and the compete
smell of fresh buttered strawberry scone
tastes tantalize—corn dog...Read More

Brighten my Heart
Brighten my heart 
With a thousand suns
Rip off my mind
With a million words 
Play me like strings
Here and in my dreams

Tell me to come
And I'll be your home
For you I'd sing
Like a bird with one wing
And I'll make you smile...Read More

Eula Gee
Here lies Father John with his mum
Who told everyone John was dumb
Her final scoff,
"What a RIP-off!
You must be as dumb as they come!"

Well, lightening soon struck their stone
And we heard that old lady moan
Beneath the cross
She yelled, "I'm boss!"
And I'll...Read More

A Legacy of Jealousy
An aching head splits in hatred. 
Heart torments frustrated. 
Mouth foams ...poison provoke. 
Eyes reek .. fire and smoke.

Oh! No one's out here jealous. 
Ugly, greedy. .wicked,  animus.
It's the ruckus of a green dragon. 
Agony boils..  a mean...Read More

Premium Member Feral
A feral predator
Imposing. The largest 
Wild cat of them all
Untamed. Fierce. Stealthy 
Ambush assassins on the prowl
Leaping onto prey
With lightning speed
Killing without mercy
Using its large canine teeth
To rip off a sizeable chunk 
Of flesh, and to crush bones
This mammoth cat...Read More

A Valentines Amputation
Today is the day of February 14th,
So I'm making this card and it may sound mean.
Let's rip off an arm and beat each other in the head,
So the love we share bleeds out our stumps bloody red.
Then throw them far...Read More

Listen to the heartbeat

We're on borrowed time

My Disney Day
My stress was through the roof before
This day at last arrived.
So many problems could crop up,
Plus I was sleep-deprived.

The heat, the crowds, the lines, the waits,
The grandkids, 2 and 4-ish,
As well as my devoted aunt,
Who's 89 or more-ish.

Yet it indeed...Read More

Finally now, I'm getting off work
Not another bruise or blister
I can hardly, wait to rip off
The pink panties of my sister!
