Lover's tug of war
Want to hold you and kiss you
And bite your neck until
You fall to pieces...

Jealousy
My dog lays 
snoaring loud 
          dreaming of bones
and tug of war.
and his snout out the window 

I lay awake
questioning and 
holding in a 
piss.

Killing myself


with a cigarette.

Different forces
He walks by and catches my eye
She smiles and it makes me feel shy
I feel a tug of war in my heart
I don't know where to beginning or 
where to part. Somethings you just
have to leave up to god....

backslide between
in the past found that 
the mind's eye would 
continuously backslide
between the rational
and the irrational
realms of thought
a tug-of-war
a back and forth
movement within
the land of emotional limbo

Tug of War
Life is a game of chance,
between two worlds,
Reality and imagination,
between two paths,
of existing and Legacy.

Life is a game of Tug of War,
between Life and Death,
Living and Dying,
Coming and Going,
and you are the rope....

Vicious Game
Out the door
is a vicious game
a process

battle of spite
tug of war
circus of irritation

where nobody loses
no one wins
a bloody senseless draw

no referee
only stiff jabs
right crosses

haymakers
countered by blow
after blow
       
low...

A Choice?
It is not a choice you see,
for this is how God made me.
My emotions in a tug of war.
To my psyche, she was a savior.
Out of the closet I did run.
The battle for my sanity was hard won.
A lifelong journey I made for her.
My love, she did concur....

Tug of War
Driven mad by all this pulling-
Tearing me limb from limb!
Who do you think you are fooling?
Ah, this feeling- great and grim!

Grieving Goddess fits the bodice,
And embodies my Despair.
At this Tug of War- am no novice...
(Oh! All the Hurt I can't repair!)...

Snow Flakes and Easter Lilies
Snow flakes and Easter lilies scatter the ground
Winter time and Spring time seem to be having a round
Like a game of tug of war each side wants control
Today it was winter who wanted to rock n roll
Tomorrow maybe Spring time will give it a heave ho
Guess we won’t know till tomorrow though...

standing mango india floored
everyday life,a tightrope walk
within country.a tug of war
civil unrest floors standing mango india

unconstitutional legislations
unconstitutional judgements
civil unrest floors standing mango india

power shifts to war era
third world war coming
civil unrest floors standing mango india...

Premium Member Tug of War
He tugs dad this way
   He tugs mom that way

They forget he is there
   And quarrel with each other ...

Driven to distraction
   They speak freely, candidly, even brutally

Their son learns that marriage is not always a bed of roses
   And that they love him -- and each other -- more than ever

Tug of War
My body is like the rope
in the game of tug of war
Death pulls hard 
to bring me into the 
bright light
Life pulls hard
to keep me in 
it's dark hole.

Death's strength grows
with each passing day
Life can no longer 
hold onto the rope
The game is over
Death wins
At last the sweet
smell of victory....

Whore of Nights
Endless nights ,Endless days,
seems like a story in my life.
I say no,still goes far,
forbidden fruit tastes so dear.
Flesh or heart,which comes first,
tug of war decides at last.
Bed of roses,beside me,
chose the thorn to love the pain.
Am I a dice ,played by life?
or a whore of sleepless nights.

Tug of War
The face undergoes gradual change
Time cannot affect the orange


Time lashes our body in its chains
The child at the bottom sees and smiles
He dreams along for miles and miles
All through our life the tug of war remains

Walking my tiger home
Walking my tiger home
Walking my tiger home is a job.
She pulls me down the street for that food at home
She runs like a rabbit pulling me right behind.
It becomes a tug of war she pulling me and I pulling her back.
No cat or dog can stand in her way.
For being only 2 feet tall shes a real tiger when 
I walk my tiger home

Premium Member Tis Not Fair
Winter and spring had a tug of war
One wanted to stay 
while the other wanted it to go
Winter said,... today I will snow
Spring said,... no you will go
Winter said,... I will bring a dark dreary day
Spring said,... there is no earthly way
They argued back and forth
Time intervened on the pair
They both cried, tis not fair.

Exhausted Avenues
Spent energy
No drive
Droopy eyelids
Must revive

Need sleep 
Too much to do
Running errands
Losing you

Cradling memories
Yesterday’s past
Sensing distance
Falling fast

Love for life
Children first
Endless devotion
Now we’re cursed

I won’t change
This is me
Lost in a tug of war
Amidst this jubilee

He Had No Balls
Still the bone remained....
Pulling on his chain; ever snarling
A tug of war with, her tree as meat loaf 
Became his dreams and gobble said the turkey
Unto her queen bee ? Blue bishops atop pogo sticks a fly
With one big eye siphoning the marrow from time's sparrow; slobbering
Their madman howls holy cow his orange cat meows wow, where has Alice gone.

Bobbin the Robin
I see a Robin Red Breast
He’s searching for a worm
A few quick steps is all he takes
He’s on a grassy berm
  
When he stops, he turns his head
And listens to the ground
If a worm should make a move
He’s sure to hear the sound

Soon the worm may find himself
In a game that he can’t win
If the Robin gets a hold of him
Let the tug-of-war begin

Going out with a bang
This is the dawning of the age 
Of new becoming
Walls of centuries falling down
Creating eventful sprouts
Information untied like a great gift
Gathering all builders of words
Come one come all 
None too big or too small
Tug of war over come 
Time for calm waters stand
Special harbors carved
Anything goes
Only if it's good 
Put downs to rest
Bask in the season of best...

'Just me'


                   'Just me' !
   
Whatever be the day that unfolds,
Whatever it be, as it is 'me' it moulds,

Challenges immense, to change my course,
At times with negative vibes and subtle force;

Amidst the crowd with my head held high,
Amidst the tug of war of power and pride;

In thoughts, words and in transformed deed,
Shall be 'me' in truth, held in good stead!...

Who I'm Searching For
I live life,
As if i am the virgin Mary's aborted child,
Mistakenly born,
Tainted purity in actuality,
Beaten for kindness,
Respected by none,
Accidental struggle,
Tug of war between bad an evil,
A one winged dirty dove,
Flying in circles,
I am the confused of the world,
I am a child lost in Life's supermarket,
Screaming and pleading for help,
Desiring only one person,
God....
