I can’t look away though his eyes ride every which way.
They slip and slide through every page

with his mind — tempting him to consume the widow,
who releases her...Read More

Emotions as Cash
"Can you consider emotions,
As a possession 

Like shoes or a coat,
Bike or a boat 

Can we claim what we cannot see,
I’m sorry you just have to believe

Some emotions however we can see,
Like those exposed on your shirt sleeve

Happy, sad, perturbed...Read More

Can't stop, I'm driven to an extreme intense vision
Of power and control much like the guy on television
Lead the whole planet
To run the gamut
Making sure we're still here in our lovely subdivision

From The Pit Of Hell
FROM THE PIT OF HELL
By R. A. Merritt

The KKK has got a new name 
But they don’t wear a robe and hood
They’re alternative right and are often polite 
Like decent people should

Yeah they wear suits and ties
And have wingtips on...Read More

Premium Member Rain a Long Time Coming

Before your heart was erased.
When we run the gamut

That annoy even the great ones,
With pedigrees like tulips.
Free at last--
Or so I thought, but
All hope...Read More

Before your heart was erased?
All I know is that
When we run the gamut 
There are rules
That cannot be broken
And shattered like an icicle
Falling to the ground.

There are spirals in the mind
That annoy even the...Read More

Never thought I'd still be around
When my driver's license said, “older than dirt!”
And my mind was no longer sound

But I can get away with a bunch of neat stuff
Rack it...Read More

"ALL RISE! THIS HONORABLE COURT IS NOW IN SESSION!"
I whack the gavel down, I'm a Bailiff by profession.
Another challenging day in the hallowed court room begins,
As hapless souls appear before the judge to recount their sins!
