Premium Member If You Don't Want Your Money
Very rarely will you ever see,
anyone who hates money more than yours truly.
"Well, If you don't want your money,"
they say to me constantly,
"you can always give it to me."
They don't even hear themselves sadly,
not realizing that money, are the chains...Read More

Just Passing Through
Bang! Bang! Bang! 
The sound of gun shots echoing in the air
Shattering windows and, smashing glasses 
Sending people pouring out in the street
Gun shots penetrating the clouds 
With a message that is very loud

People are running and screaming around

I witness I see On my pillow
Surround sound guarded by the universe
A picture prompt of
Skies gray in places black
Other areas white

Caressed
Deep inside of myself/themselves

I stand alone a barking tree, where silent sorrows of ripples flee,
No one hears my calamity, wearing weeps of my raped reality…
Branches droop to ice-cold ground, solitudes surface of their drowned,
Abysmal anguish of leaves have browned, lacrimal echoes of their...Read More

Things You hear In The Night
Run friends as fast as you can
From this dreadful land
Be wary of a terrible sight
Of things that go "Blasty Blang Beedle Bum  Bang" in the night!

Nery a more terrible sound
That can be heard for miles around
A sound that doesn't...Read More

Anxiety
True terror taps
on my bedroom window.
I know that I have
no choice
but for a while I
remain
under the covers,
the air becoming
more and more stale
as my breathes become
deeper. And quicker.
The tapping is music and
rhythmic and present and
all in time with the frantic
beating of...Read More

Echoman has secretly loved this ravishing beauty
Lost her to a human whilst she was on duty!

I saw Judy Collins in concert last night…
her melodies once again soaring to the stars
proving angels never lose their voice…
no matter how old they are. 

And I remember thinking to myself
As she, smiling, took the stage

Etymologists hate poetry -
I have that on the best authority -
Of course the bloody rhyme's not perfect!

(About the closest match is "sandwich")
Were not supporters of our noble art,
They had us beaten from the...Read More

Premium Member An inevitable dismay
Insignificant beads 
Of
Thousand sparkling moments...
Of little or no value.

Floating bubbles 
Fill the air .....
With colors of laughter
With softness of yesterday
And with smell of a forgotten dream.

Floating bubbles 
Fill the air .....
With a probability of an inevitable dismay.....

Then comes a Insignificant...Read More

The sea
Rowing in the wooden dingy,
My arms recall 
The lost days 
Of ocean voyages,
And all at once I remember 
The emerald green 
Phosphorescence 
On night watch....
And the midnight sound 
Of dolphins breath 
Those princes of the sea 
Who were enamoured

Sadly, we still suffer,
from the slings of other's arrows.
So many lost souls,
with minds that continue to narrow.

With just a whisper,
they will always hear your sound.
Hence they come running,
by leaps and bounds.

Sometimes the grass looks greener,
within a stone's throw.
Far sadder is...Read More

The Old Clock
Tick tock, tick tock,
Hands move slowly around.
Every second, every hour.
Old reliable, sturdy standing alone.
Longing for the day to pass.
Daylight beams cast shadows.
Carefully listen to the sound.
Lightly, softly, rhythmic.
Odour of oak and polish.
Clean with care leave no scratches.
Kneeling down closing the...Read More

Do You Hear What I Hear
Birthdate?  My family tells me
it was 1900 or so.
I don’t remember being born;
I know when I started to grow.

My first real friend was named Reggie
We first met when I was just six.
It was Christmas Eve, we read from

I miss you, won't see

i'm sad, you have always 
been my favorite cousin,
nothings the same without you.
