Two Prince Cats
Two Prince Cats
by Dylan Williamson

There was a kingdom
That had two princes
The princes were highly sought for
So they brought a challenge
For their courters to go through
Both turned into slinking cats
That could run and hide
Easily enough from anyone
That meant them harm
Both wore...Read More

I want to be remembered 
By the words that I write
I want my message to be heard
I pray someday that it might

I want my love to be felt
My heart to be told
These things are pondered
As my years grow old

I've never...Read More

He walks around with his nose pointing upward in the air
With calculating eyes that are so fearful, mouth moving from side to side and a tongue that keeps twisting around the things that are profound. Nonsensical words are constantly dripping...Read More

Politice Rectam
Married to correctness,
divorced from the ideal

The truth becomes enigma,
veracity to steal

Facts bury in self interest,
the cheaters run and hide

All trysts a fated exercise
—philandering with lies

Soporific narcoleptic pull wielded courtesy innocent looking bed
Hypnagogic spell immediately cast

Great Escape
Gone are the days when I could 
Run and hide from chopping wood -
Escape from chores that I found boring
And beneath me when rain was pouring
Torrents on my young and eager head.
Easy was the life that I lead.

When the zombies call on you
And there's nothing you can do
You can run and hide
But time is on their side
Corpses crawling
You start bawling
Running too and fro
Where can you go
Cause their coming after you
And there's nothing you can do
Buy a ray...Read More

Stalwart eldest sister Amelie
Over saturation with 
welter weighted Yuletide
drenching world, web, wide

effort demands energy tide

lest apocalypse doth ride

high and mighty mandating,
inculcating, buoying... pride

apathetic, demonic, horrific,

I was not prepared for the fame...
Didn't realize the price of a name.
Millions of eyes were watching me-
No place to go they could not see!
My whole life was then an open book,
And anyone at all could take a look.

I don’t know if ill ever be okay
Each day I just want to run and hide
In a cupboard, 
Something small
Alone with my own thoughts
Ticking time bomb
Can I just give up?
There’s a gape so deep I don’t even know me anymore

I’m just a poem in disarray
some words tossed on the page
A jumbled mess of things to say
that never act their age

Like stanzas baked in carrot stew
all mixed and mingled in
Nice woven thoughts on skies of blue
each evening that begin

Or lines...Read More

Intertwined in everything and nothing. Apart forever and never apart. Always reaching, never meeting. Intertwined in nothing and everything. 

I twist and turn rising higher. 
I’m forced into destruction and anger. 
I want to dance with the wind. 
But my...Read More

Premium Member HWL Innspired
I've never been to Segovia
or even to Madrid.
But I've read Longfellow's poetry
since I was just a kid.

Inspired by his unfamiliar words
as they rolled upon my tongue,
saying gloaming for the darkness
was much fun when I was young.

I made my sister angry.

Got me crazy
Got me all up in my mind

My addiction
Useless to run and hide

Is it true
In you I will confide
