From The Heart

Thunder and lightening  
Sunshine and rain 
Are more  like  emotions
That   run  through  my brain

Our lives are filled with 
The ups   and  the downs
And  sometimes it feels 
Like a merry-go–round...Read More

King of the Castle
The King of the Castle 

Said I’m but a child
Afraid of the world outside 
Afraid to run wild and to  be proud
Of the freedom it provides
Afraid of love 
Afraid of the dark 

Said you have another side to you...Read More

The Water Hole
Round eyed cat studies the merits of the day
Meanders through a labyrinth of thorny grass
Four legged wildebeest never knew what hit it
The water is so cool and refreshing by the by
Heads hang low over the over populated location
An oasis in...Read More

Kid In Ga
I'm on that stupid mode!
Ignorance shooting like haters:
No wars, no conflicts...
Running in circles: "Ain't that Ouroboros"
I know Venus scared of snakes,
Hence the circle we always have to draw!

A Little White Lie
I didn't mind
A little white lie

I made a tapestry
A testament to this
My deep sorrow

Painted gray
Splashes here and there

Nowhere soon
Kicked the bucket
Stubbed my toe

I screamed out loud
But in my own head

I can't be heard
My heart can't reach
Those silent eyes

Running in circles
Falling...Read More

StreetLights Part I
Under Glaring lights visions of my mind blurred and hazed
Of Mom's running in circles, Dad's trapped in a maze_ 
Living the same cycles of life, refusing to change their ways.
Lil sister and bro's facing harsh growing pains__
realize hard work don't...Read More

Speed Bumps
Written: by Tom Wright

Are you ever found striving,
To just get over the hump;
But each day of the week,
Is like another speed bump;

As soon as we clear one,
And start to pick up steam.
Another problem arises,
Prompting from us a scream;

It seems...Read More

Forever Young
Swinging in circles
At the playground in the dark.
Running in circles
To try to reignite sparks
I once had when I was young.

Homeless within who to turn to,
Empty vessels speak launder,
Humming the morning chicken sounds
Proclaiming the fascination of the end of the darker days
You’ve always been around, but you might be forgotten
Wind blowing from every angle might be the reason
Self searching might...Read More

It comes to you in the post

in Christmas cards sent you

Oh, very well.
At least at the end I'll be ... farther along, I suppose.

Just A Sonnet XII
Is this love or is this lust?
Truth should be told when she's walking with another man
Will I breakdown into pieces and lose her trust
Time will do the talking, the walking on this page is for the pen

Without a Woman
The man is lion of this jungle
Armies to him are humble.
He runs non stop to make things run
And never let's a crawl walk until it runs.

But he would keep running in circles

The Eyes Of Your Heart
The biggest test of my heart and soul,
Has been to trust in you, to let things go,
Some people will allow you to have the last word,
To manipulate your heart, to make you feel unsure,
Rest assured,,,their plans weren't yours,
There was no...Read More

Chasing what I want

I swam across an ocean of doubt
Leaped over a mountain of regret

And the confusion never...Read More

Feels like someone is losing devotion

See as the returning withers the oceans
