Over the top
Fog from "Frisco came.
If not only in substance,
Then in name.
From Berk' also
Some they came....

OH, LOVELY AND ADORED ONE
Oh, lovely and adored one...
descend as a star
over the top of a pine
to hear my guitar!
  

Oh, Lovely and adored one...
let love inflame us 
as the moon wanders alone
amid haze and clouds!

I'm on a roll, not a toilet paper roll Methinks most would agree, if you took a poll Mostly good limericks At times just gibberish Over the top silly, certainly not droll

Ripples of Pain
I sit in sadness,
wondering why i feel
like all my wounds
inside me won't heal
the pain is like water
the ripples never stop
they crash against my soul
beating at the barriers till
they flow over the top...

Coffee the staple in my world
Over the top in aroma
Finding a good cup is hard to do
Figure that one with brands a plenty
Every ounce is savored as it  slowly goes down.

Coffee you indulge this wanting tongue.

a new thing
i saw a new thing 
over the top 
of nothingness 
better than the old 
rejoice at the find 
till the rays entered 
my lavished mind 
excited dopamine 
raced and shot 
through the veins of rot
bringing me life
and hope of a new 
day

Cuddling in soft blankets
feeling cherished
adding Vicks
which brings me extra comfort
and childhood memories
I pick up my warm mug
filled with hot chocolate
overshadowed by the large
melted marshmallow 
floating all over the top
Life is grand!

Triolet:Fix Bayonets
Fix bayonets to fight the foe,
Over the 'top' to sound of shell.
Village men of Fingeringhoe
Fix bayonets to fight the foe.
Fighting for King and country lo!
Trench warfare sure is swell
Fix bayonets to fight the foe
Over the 'top' to sound of shell....

Premium Member The Carpenters



 

We thought we were invincible,

Fearless, there we stood.

But somewhere to the rear

We heard someone sawing wood.

It was over the top for us,

A fight was in the offing.

But not for the carpenters,

They were busy, making coffins.

Nostalgia
Yeah, we had wavelengths that worked and that didn't

Good, bad, happy, sad, over the top slightly mad
all that stuff.

I eschewed butterflies
so did you and maybe we
should not have

tossed shoulds
tho
seems better to both of us
than embracing butterflies?

Dunno, do you?...

Simplicity
I was gonna write this over the top poem. 
It was going to have personification and all that jazz
But then I thought 
And I thought 
And I thought 
Then it hit me 
This poem is about simplicity so why not keep it simple.
Roses are violets are blue 
I want an A for this 
How about you....

What
What is it
I don't know
I have never had it
I see it everyday
I see it everywhere
I searched for it
In the cracks
In the details
In the hedges
In the edges
I looked everywhere
Down below
Over the top
Into betwixt
Here and there
I searched everywhere
What is it
I don't know
I have never had it...

Premium Member Glads

You love African violets.
 
It was a surprise then
when you confessed a passion 
for gladioli,
 
(I will learn to live with them).
 
We bring home bunches from Walmart
-vivid, over-the-top floral giraffes.
 
They dwarf everything in the apartment,
 
but do provide shade 
   for the African violets....

Toilet Paper Roll
The biggest controversy of the day
Is toilet paper – which way should it lay
Should it roll under and hug the bathroom wall
Or over the top and stand out till it’s small
Personally, I’m a top roll guy
It puts it that much closer to my thigh
And as we age our movements start to slow
I like things close because you never know

The Escape
There is a door in the sky
For those who wish to escape
From the nurse`s worried glance
To red lights that turn in the street
From the soft tread of a priest`s shoe
To a latinate fast finger of magic
From the over-the-top of Flanders
To the heavens that play dice
This is more life than you`ll ever need;
For those who wish to escape
There is a door in the sky....

Voice
Voice

All have a voice but few no words. 
A force that pushes the heart's thought.
A fire that is fueled by one's wants.
It fights roaring storms to be heard. 
It sits at ease till the cloud is clear. 
Many have forced lazy dozens into bottles. 
Placing fierce thumbs over the top.
Pressing new strength around the clock.
Till it fractures and becomes a flood.

Today
What tomorrow fought
Seeing double
Worth as much
Costing every dime
Every soul
My very essence
Caress
My eternal abode
United together
The very fabric
Of my taste
Busting my heart
My being
Over the top
Winning
Square away
Never
Leaving as one
Permanent
Elite, never leaving
Self-imposed
Composed
Free loading
Being
Timeless as one
Complete
United
Level of peace
Perfected
And asleep
