Premium Member Bad Whore


She was not a good whore
she was bad.
A bad big-boned whore
rotten to the core.

Bad whore had a pimp
but even he was better than her.
Her customers were drunks,
mostly punks and skunks.

She worked the streets
until her thighs got too big
and her ass...Read More

The Man I've Never Met
I met a man who was never married
Said it was the one regret he carried
I met another man who married thrice
Claimed they were the three mistakes in his life
I met a man, told me drugs were his ruin
Stole his ambition,...Read More

Premium Member The Fallen



“The Fallen”



Remote,
he sees himself 
in the reflection of cold close 
yet distant shop windows, 
his final journey along the 
Hard Time Road
walking alone, 
unforgiven, no home
for the rest of his natural life 
a million knives 
embedded impeding 
words wrapped around...Read More

Premium Member No Brakes
No Brakes.

Accelerating at a faster and faster pace
All down hill without a brake
For I have lost control
Feel no longer human
Only smothering consuming darkness
And biting bitter cold

For I lingered in limbo 
Alone
For much too long
I was never weak
But strong
I pushed myself...Read More

Premium Member Sick world in Chaos
My hands are tied
I cannot speak
Although my heart cries out
For the starving weak and the meek
The inocents caught up in war
Corrupt worl leaders
Rotten to the core
Those struggling to live
I have so much love to give
The abuse of children old people

If I Was A Man
If I was a man
I will cook in the morning
I will cook in the evening
A stew which is rotten to the core.

If I was a man
In the middle of a house,
Surrounded by cobwebs
And droppings of the mouse
I will call for...Read More

A Bad Apple
By: Tom Wright
3/10/2006

I was just one more apple,
in a barrel called life.
A creature of pleasure, 
bruised and crushed from strife.

Without meaningful direction,
I accepted come what may.
I sought pleasure in sin,
for what I thought, was a day.

But once awakening,...Read More

Snarled Inside The Illusion
When yesterday left, today I'm a little right. 
This is a tad bereft, yet full with almight.
Misconceptions or misinterpretations, either way it's confusion. 
Dreaming of incarnations, incantations snarled in the illusion.
Mass produced catholics, should be forgotten inside their cathedral. 
Discovered...Read More

Worthless
I loathe my existence
I don't deserve to live
I'm pricked by my conscience
Myself, I can't forgive

I'm broken and filthy
I'm worthless like refuse
I'm damaged property
A product of abuse

My darkness I abhor
Why am I still alive?
I'm rotten to the core
From death, why did...Read More

Petition to a Choo-choo Train
Petition to a Choo-choo Train

Oh, jolly little choo-choo Train;
Rolling quickly down the track.
Take him far away from me,
And never bring him back.

Take him far away;
So maybe I'll be free.
Cause the no-good likes of him.
Spells trouble just for me.

Take him far...Read More

Gemini
How could you love him?
Such a being so vile
You do see the future's grim?
Rotten to the core, as a corpse pile

He brings cheer and laughter
Thoughts of brighter days
Smiling in his wake thereafter
Oh how we hope he stays

His everything brings me...Read More

Humpty Dumpty
"Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall,
All the kings horses and all the kings men,
couldn't put humpty together again."

They called him an egg, 
for he was round and glee,
They laughed at his nose
so very big and...Read More

My head aches with red, yellow, blue, green

For my twice yearly torture session

In order to save my remaining teeth

Premium Member A constellation in my head
Gazing up into the sky
A falling star catches my eye
Surrounded by the brightest moon

Of all the things we left unsaid
Misalignment of the stars
Drown your sorrows in a bar

Lies, deception, I was weak 
But you are...Read More

We Were Never Here
Yesterday there was
another killing suicide bombing

Hold Your Breath
If you gotta hold your breath,

Then it must be rotten to the core,
smelling like dead fish washed up on...Read More

The Center of the Earth
The earth is round.
It is not flat on any given day of the year.
It is a very solid shaped sphere.
It is not going anywhere either.
Well, not at least for the next one thousand years.

The earth is a playground.
It is where...Read More

Catching flies

“You catch more flies with sugar,”
oh yes, that’s what they say
If even just a little bit
those bugs will come your way

But somehow I have noticed
as this saying I explore
You’ll catch more flies with something else
that’s rotten to the core

Rotten To The Core
9/15/16


Across the lands and shores

Plants and spores

So much life in different shapes and forms

Many storms cold or warm



Always been an omnivore

So I eat vegetables like corn

And meats like albacore and boar

I don't care about the odds on the board

It's about...Read More
