Pardon mine allegiance to infidelity
Unfaithful marital transgressions
self admitted indictment,
crime and punishment,
no longer think high lee
entailing no mister re: demeanors,
I searingly weathered

(George by bushed, albeit thankfully,
no unwanted child left behind),
nonetheless one unforgettable
indelible, execrable, and abominable
professedly owned his
civil warring battle of life

transgressions undeservedly heaped

Asleep courtesy deep relaxation music
Elongated dazzling radiance cast abeam
sensational blinding brilliance
thru eyelids cast agleam
buoyed upon soundcloud airstream
entire corporeal complex edifice

rocked upon gently
shimmering weightless as moon beam
metaphorically floats yours truly

circulating, distributing, enervating...

Happy V-day MOFO , Electropopdance-poppop-trapnu-goth pop
you got my hart
and its twisted and raw
guess what?
I, wrapped it in
some bloody SPONGE GAUZE

only to serve it to
my favorite god

I'm going to kill you

She has always had a fixation
For time travel
Until she accidently
Discovered a portal
Once she stepped inside
It was quickly spontaneous combustion
As her molecules traveled through time
While trying to navigate
The speed of her movement
After she arrived, and looked around
She was intrigue, when she...Read More

If you see this just know
you make me feel some type of way

Soaking inside of our thoughts 
Hoping to never be forgot 
Sit around an rot

My heart is a boundless ocean
Of remembrance old and deep,
I am a creature of emotion
With my memories to keep.

My heart is a porous sponge,
Absorbing every hurt,
Prone always to plunge
To acts it cannot revert.

My heart is a giant bullseye,
Centred on life's...Read More

The little things that leave us enchanted AN
Magic is real, if you only look
It's in the chapter of your fave book
It is the glisten, of gentle rain 
Upon your window pane
It is that first morning coffee
It's the one you wake up to see
It's the love that never...Read More

Is consciousness a sponge,
that ever expands

Is consciousness a vacuum,
where potential commands 

Is consciousness a gateway,
to something beyond

Our mind and our spirit
—a fusion lifelong

A sponge,
I will take into my hands and dip it
into water.

For a while, I will let it soak
its thirst manages, finally, to quench
and then, with it,
all little things that have bothered me for years
with a single stroke, from my memory,

Unlike the vast population swath,
with painful hangover
average celebrant merely
doth confusedly blink,
who devoutly pledge
new year resolution
to give up drink
immediately fall off wagon

as he/she eagerly downs
shot after fermented shot
while forearms link
with family, friends,
strangers, et cetera

Into Deep Water Did Like To Lunge
Into Deep Water Did Like To Lunge

Trump had seemed to be such a sponge;
Into incredible debt  country did plunge,
We could never favor;
Due to poor behavior;
Into deep water always liked to lunge.

I saw the bitter tears of unhappiness
Running down your agonizing face,
Ravaged with pain,

And I became a sponge of compassion
To absorb them.

I heard the howling 
Of your starving stomach,
Echoing throughout your rebellious drained veins,

And I became a sweet loaf of bread

With my absorbency nature
I take in freely God’s flowing grace
Accumulating with abundance from Christ’s compassion*-store
Optimizing the Saviour’s goodness as I’m soaked in His mercy-grants.

I give kindness with whole earnestness
Loading out forgiveness with forbearance-cheer
Maximizing offered provisions up to...Read More

Flowing Through
Does your writing leave room
for intrusion

With spaces for listeners
to crawl in

Are your words like a sponge
that the reader can drain

Your verses to flow through
them again

A hexagon, a hexagon, you have to be a hexagon.

What use have I for pentagon?
You’re too close to the White House lawn!
So you’re a base to stand upon?
This isn’t baseball, Pentagon.

I hear the squelch of death again,
Like a muddy-voiced refrain,
Soaking the mental sponge of my brain,
Mortality trudging along in the rain.

Death to me is a foul swamp creature,
Scaly of skin and swollen of feature,
A horror movie caricature,
Of legendary geniture.
