Premium Member Scratch 'n Sniff


Great advice, scratch 'n sniff to paradise
Might take a few scratches, it's a roll of the dice
Odds are not in your favor
No matter, someone will savor
A huge lump of cash, a limitless fortune will entice

Manic Pixie Girl
You're everything I've ever wanted
But that I cannot have
God can be so cruel
I've been dealt a bad hand
So can we hit the reset
To try another roll of the dice
Maybe fate will have mercy
Maybe you could be had
You manic pixie you

Premium Member Life Is A Roll Of The Dice


To all the people that we've known in our life
Here's some words of wisdom, it's all about the roll of the dice
Depends on which the slot we land
Or if we're dealt a winning hand
It's all about circumstance, we don't get...Read More

Shadows
Who among us can walk without shadows from cradle to grave?
Who’s not affected by the light we crave?

Was anyone born without parents or kin?
Or know when life starts and truly ends?

Is it really all over when the heart beat fades
Or...Read More

He’s Hemingways whiskey, he’s vodka on ice
Smoke on the water, a roll of the dice
Magic and mirrors illusion to most
Thumbing his way from east coast to west coast

He’s lived on the brink, on the edge of a knife
He’s met with...Read More

Finding The Throne
Look at this throne 
Riddled with cracks
And covered in bone
It's time to drop the facts

I'm the best at verse
When writing spoken word
It erupts in a burst
And you know I'll be heard

So just chill out
Listen to the smooth transition
And obliterate all...Read More

Defined By Idioms

Naked truth, bent nails
dead men tell no tales
bad Apple, broken mirrors
burnt out light bulbs, crocodile tears
spilt milk, goose chase
two cents worth, rat race
rotten egg, bad to the bone
eagle eye, no place like home.
bat from hell,
pulled punch
big cheese,

Premium Member One Roll Of The Dice

When you asked me to the school dance
I thought, wow...this is my one chance
to experience true romance

Your smile just made my dream come true
for I've always felt drawn to you
but never guessed...you'd like me too

I'm walking around on cloud nine

Blind Leaders of The Blind

 to pay for their evilness
 the humble thought of togetherness
 there's a hero in those eyes

 does it come at any surprise
 to think twice
 another roll of the dice
 onto heavy hearts

I've squeezed every drop of juice out of life
Ready for what lies ahead no matter what it's like
Exotic or common
Clean air or pollen
But then really at best, it's a roll of the dice

Days of endless struggle
More hopeful pills today
Trying to appear 'normal'
In some sort of way.

It seems that the struggle
Is always here with me
And I wouldn't be here now
If guilt would leave me be

I know there's been many
Who've had it worse than...Read More

Mirth
We all dream of a paradise
Where you live in peace,
And all pain would cease.
No chance of grief, no roll of the dice.
A place that I found,
No longer earthbound.
Nothing could touch me, I was invincible.
Should have listened, I was inconvincible.
Then I...Read More

Requiem for a Compulsive Gambler
It seems you could never stay out of a casino.
As soon as you got paid, that is where you would go.
Your life became dependent on the roll of the dice.
Each crap table visited was as cold as ice.

About thirty thousand days
I have lived on this Planet Earth
And at some point during each of those days
It was given over to mirth

Guess you could say I'm a contented person
With more than my share of happy
Why me? I have often...Read More

Premium Member A 14 Bedroom Cottage


When Teddy Roosevelt married he built a 14 bedroom “cottage”
Describing it as such as he and his wife Edith foxtrotted
Must be really quite nice
Surely a roll of the dice
Being born into a wealthy family allows one to flaunt it

Inspiration
Flickering sparks of creativity
Fluidly flowing phantoms, not tethered by time or logic
Unintelligible shadows twisting about as formless vapor
Teasing me with the occasional glimpse of meaning and clarity
Whispering vague ideas and subtle musings
Swirling memories and lucid yet imaginative thoughts
They are born...Read More

Never Again
5/24/17



Not going to adjourn
Since you never learn
Going to make you squirm
More than a worm
With a stance that is firm
Then make you burn
So that you never return
Showing no concern

No more chances
Or free passes
You'll find out what happens
Over such foolish actions
When you...Read More
