The Climb
You're on

A slippery slope

When you climb

A mountain

Without a rope..

A slippery slope
vote and hope.
Don’t read prior
dire straits crier.
Time to mope.

Sail on Soothing Seas
She ran as swiftly as she could
down the slippery slope
through the sifting sand
to the sparkling ship
to sail on soothing seas.

Premium Member Slip and Fall in Maine
Through the long winters up in Maine
Her virtue she aims to maintain
Though she tries best to cope
On a slippery slope
She slips and falls now and again...

NEVER FORGET BENGHAZI
NEVER FORGET BENGHAZI 

Policy makers 
objectives verses orders
Field duplicity 

A slippery slope
of alleged interventions
RECALL...BENGHAZI!!

My mind,
Slippery slope,
Once in, hard to get out,
It is an enigma, beware...
this maze!

Rapunzel
Rapunzels hair having great wear and tear,
enchantress gave her hair conditioner,
hair a long rope,
slippery slope,
prince climbing becoming a nightmare.

Comfortable was the relationship
Compassionate was the love
Tranquil were the days of bliss
Slippery slope was the surprise

Love is a journey,
a thrilling ride.
Love is a camera,
full of memories.
Love is a battlefield,
bound in blood. 
Love is the smell of rain,
after a storm.
Love is a slippery slope,
leading to neverland....

Reality
Reality, a slippery soap
It's slipping from my hands
But God is helping me cope
With trials I don't understand

Reality, a slippery slope
I'm slipping as I land
But God is my strong, tight rope
I know I'm in loving hands...

A Scratch of Paper
A scratch of paper is what I need

Pen and paper performs the deed

Imagine these words to bring us hope

A scratch of paper on a slippery slope

A stroke of genius and the moment is caught

A scratch of paper to share my thought...

This chance
Tis a slippery slope they say
Tis too complicated they say
Tis sure to fail they say

But what in life is easy
Commitment tis never breezy
Divided we stand sure is messy

Pursue my love I shall
Right or wrong tis my call
This chance I’ll give my all

Reveal
Crashing waves
white capped guilt
Stone like will
crushed to silt
Parry clouds
this driving rain
Heartbreak city
shows no pity
Looks of hope
a slippery slope
Changing lanes
while dodging pain
Reality smacks in your face
desperation to keep pace....

SLIPPERY SLOPE
SLIPPERY SLOPE



If the world’s intentions
Were turned into actuality
Wars, famines, infections
Would cease to be reality



Our broad highway is not internet
But icy blackness without brakes
For most there is no safety net
But there must  be  - for all our sakes

Premium Member Keeping Him On His Toes
You are sliding a slippery slope
I tell my darling prince
He shudders, not knowing what he has done
to incur my wrath
I am not about to tell him either
The guessing is what keeps him on his toes
and possibly keeps him solicitous 
keeping the marriage alive.

Premium Member Love Without Hope
Love is supposed to be patient and kind.
But sometimes it’s of another mind, and blind.
It should always protect, trust, and offer hope.
But when it doesn’t, it’s a slippery slope.

Utopia's Slippery Slope Continuum 

        Trees of pink snow bloom
     by the lake when Spring is full
           Young warriors dream

               Old warriors walk
   Through dreamless trees of concrete

Premium Member Our Brains
Our brains become somewhat rutted
Running constantly within the same track
But let someone confront with deeper wisdom
Then our lightbulb can be turned back (on)

For some it would be easier to run a mudslide
Back up the slippery slope of time
Than to get the brain to light up and burn
From new ideas, knowledge to absorb

Premium Member Hope
When life seems so tempest tossed,
And all seems so dismally lost,
Climb back up that slippery slope;
Just remember, there is always hope!

When in the throes of trials and stress,
And in times of forlorn hopelessness,
'Twill be much easier for you to cope,
Remembering that there is always hope!

She Sings Songs Solo


She swims on squealing stream of spring song,
sings solo sailing slow in storm surge so strong,
slips on steep slippery slope of sticky silt sheets,
on snapped strings of split Sarangi she sadly sits.

(Sarangi is an Indian musical instrument with three
or four main strings)

Cherry Picking
Cherry pick the parts that fit your narrative.
Discard the others, they are imparative.

Cherry pick the parts that agree with you.
Diverse ideas do not see you through.

Cherry pick all the "Yes Men" you like.
Trust what they say, believe the hype.

Cherry Pick this slippery slope we're decsending on.
Plunge down this proverbial landslide we came uopon....

Words behind
Will it last, or fade away
I try to hold on to hope(and past)
Clinging to every word you say
I’m on a slippery slope( this day)

I walk alone to trip and fall
Trying hard to draw close
Thinking of you after all
I what I lost the most

Apostate here, you will not find
My affections are ever last
The meanings of my words behind
For future use, not the past.

Maybe, He may not answer all my prayers,

Let my devotion stay same for all the years,

Journey of life is tough with slippery slope,

Let my love for Him be, love without hope.
