in wake of trepidation...
the midday sun hides.

An eye for an eye
Who adores an ancient lore chore
And loves to see gore and wage war
Yet sore pouring pain?
This stems from an old brain
A story of man’s evil core...

An Eye for an eye
one heart then two
to give and take
one, not without the other

My Side of the Lie
Forever blackened,
Are my eyes,
An eye for an eye a tooth for a tooth,
They spared my teeth,
And claimed my eyes,
Though I deserve to have a blade,
Taken to my throat.

Looking Back
Looking Back..

True! It happened
At the very first
sight,
Heart to heart
Eye to eye
Ear to ear
Cheek to cheek
Lip to lip
Joy defined...

But now,
Out of sight
Hurt to hurt
Eye for an eye
Ear for swear
Cheeky, more
Cheeky
Lips slip
Joy trampled!...

Quote Prompt I
I used to think an eye for an eye,
when people didn't talk but bite,
but then I got to thinking more,
do two wrongs make a right for sure,

And when it comes to keeping score,
do holding grudges help me more,
that's why I should forgive and forget,
instead of playing mind game roulette.

It just so happens to be
It just so happens to be
you and I together 
It just so happens to be
we can live forever

It just so happens to be 
an eye for an eye
It just so happens to be
none of us can fly

It just so happens to be 
music is my life
It just so happens to be
I can't see the light

It just so happens to be...

but why?...

Forgiveness
Forgiveness. It’s not an easy word. It’s hard to pronounce, gets stuck in your throat. What hurts more than sticks? Words that break your bones! So you’re building walls, ready, clutching stones. An eye for an eye? Seems to be fair business. Unless YOU’RE THE ONE asking for forgiveness …

Goodbye Eye for an Eye
Dear sweet child,
So full of anger and remorse,
Terrors running wild,
Be weary of this troubled course,

An eye for an eye,
Seems understandably justified, 
A comforting lie,
When you live every day terrified, 

Embrace your heart,
Break those cold rusty chains,
Time to make a new start,
And cherish the warmth that remains....

Tit for Tat
An eye for an eye
A lie for a truth
A song for a sigh
A note for a groove

A line for a page
A pen for some ink
A light for a stage
A show for a drink

An app for an age
A web for a site
A chart for a gage
A gig for a bite

A kiss for a chance
A tongue for a taste
A deuce for a dance
A catch for a phrase

Hard
see that pain, stare that glory
Here are the mistakes, I am sorry
We are poor, but hope full...nothing to worry
now that your with Jane...forget not Dorry
The battle is as clear as you can imagine
If you eye for an eye...we would doubtlessly be blind
In it all we would derive pin in the end
...glory features pin, patient and understanding of faith...

Premium Member An Eye For An Eye
There once was a couple of brats who engaged in continuous spats. The result was a tie when each scratched out an eye - an old-Biblical tit for a tat! The brats awoke bleeding and weak when, half-seeing the havoc they’d wreaked, they discarded their clothes, their behinds to expose - a new-Biblical turning of cheek!

No Isolated Cell Please
Jerry Sandusky
will serve well as a boy-toy
for a prison gang

An eye for an eye...
He'll receive rather than give
the next thirty years

Ninety-eight years old
when his wrinkled ass gets out
Bet it will be sore...

***Any parent or would be parent who does not know who this man is would do well to look him up on the internet or just watch the news......

Fire for Fire
A virtuous man put his energy on vigilance.
Vilest men channel their synergy on vengeance.
Fists that are always fast to give a fight
Will create eyes that cannot see the light.
An eye for an eye will create more beggars...
A bullet for a bullet will will breed more burglars.
Fire cannot quench fire, my dear brother;
Forgiveness gives us great grains to gather.

The Sword of the Lord
decastitch

A tooth for a tooth
An eye for an eye
If by the sword you live,
you will die and never ask why.
Your sword in your hand is your truth. 

Vengeance is mine
and I will repay 
Hark, the (s)word of the Lord.
Count on it, there's payday, someday. 
Think! Why the absence of a time line?

It was once said, "an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth".
Revenge isn't really sweet, but it is a bit uncouth.
You were fooled by thinking you would win.
In your losing battle, you committed another sin.

It can't be called poetic justice that you feel.
Posturing and abject will never be the real deal.
It was just some silly words of a poet you wanted to ban.
Mr. Stark publicly states with boldness, "I am Iron Man"....

Listen
Swirling mists of distruction,
hanging over my brain,
tears falling down my cheeks,
seep in acid rain,
and claw like talons,
petrude my bleeding heart,
and razor like eyes,
look to tear me apart,
this nightmare of demons,
willing me to die,
i shout and scream,pray and cry,
this is the pain of a child being used,
this is the child being abused,
protect our children call out the truth,
an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.

Fine Line
An eye for an eye,
Don’t anticipate,
Visions pass by,
Mark it as fate,
Underneath power,
Death can resist,
Within the next hour,
The makers assist,
Fine line read,
Scars tinted,
Crumbled like bread,
The particles hinted,
One day in,
More to come,
Kicked in the shin,
Up again; until it’s done,
Working for those,
Feeling weak,
Exotic flows,
Informing by leak,
Wordplay prescription,
Double box fled,
Mirror as reflection,
Pushing forward; ahead.

Unity
"Unity"

They say "an eye for an eye, makes the world blind."
We are brothers and sisters for a very good reason.

Though the colours of the rainbow differ together they make a beautiful scene.

Why do we teach ourselves to hate?
Loves comes naturally to the heart, like the sun to the earth.

We forget that love when embraced, amazing things happen.

Enough of the blood shedding!
Enough of  the usage of destructive words!
We are one!
Together one! And forever one!...

There Is Only Love
Once so judgmental
Explosive
So worried about 
Your politics
Your sexuality
You wear a red hat
Do you agree with me?
No?
Then I hate you
An eye for an eye
A tooth for a tooth
Hang 'em high
On the town square

Time passes
Hearts soften
It was all smoke and mirrors
The driving force of hate
Is a constant struggle
And destroys everything in its path
Why can't we see
Love is easy
It heals
And is for everyone
If we accept it
For in the end
There is only love
