Premium Member The Lost Fisher Boy Christmas Story
Playing at night on rocky ground, he sprained his foot.
He hobbled onwards careful where his foot he put.
The lonely shepherds had long returned to their sheep,
But he wanted to see before he went to sleep.
Shepherds said that angels sent them...Read More

Volleyball Championship
The day of the volleyball tournament arrived,
We had practiced together all year.

I would travel from our parents' beautiful house,
I was accepted as a last minute valuable player.

My friend had sprained her hand and couldn't play,
They asked me to come on...Read More

When Love Gives Up
Baby steps, followed by
a child's stumbling,  
teenage sprained ankles,
broken bones and
bodies covered with bruises,
adults take two steps forward
followed by one step back.

What of the person with no feet?
Hasn't he a reason to succeed.
His will shaped by submission
to a higher...Read More

Desire My Entire Satire
There may be many poets who do desire,
To read and enjoy all of my entire satire;
Did disturb;
Found on curb,
Like some garbage that started to sour.

Writing my poems have always enjoyed,
Presuming that with you will be annoyed;

Throwing in trash with...Read More

Premium Member Answering Shriek To My Left
In the woods no right of way, no right to live, no right to play.
I travel quickly, as dusk is beginning. Woods are thick, on this day.
Wood tick and spider heaven, I walk gingerly, on wet old leaves.
Dog has deserted...Read More

Playing football earned me a concussion
   Basketball tore the cartilage in my knee
Running cross-country sprained me my ankle
   While boxing knocked the sense out of me

Throwing a curveball ruined my elbow

Pop and a crackle
A dreadful noise you hear
When ya leap off the bike
Onto the pavement below
As the pain begins to settle
While the wheel slowly spun.

Aching and groaning
Crying and whining
Hyperventilating and panicing
These thoughts rushed through my mind.

Was I gonna be alright?

Patina Of Pain


Beneath the kaleidoscopic chameleon skin
the concept called color doesn’t ever change,
blood flows always as red stream in the vein.
The truth dwells beyond the deception range.

The ephemeral sheen of the mask on the face
melts in unshed tears behind the...Read More

Carbuncle Unbidden and Unwelcome
Wounds drained, opened, ingrained, rained, sprained, trained
In the midst of a family loss
Recriminations canned, fanned, planned, tanned
To fight the brute boss

Dressed up as justice cause
Disguised as implementation of lopsided justice
Pursued to discredit the family rose
Oppressed in the sluice

Where survival sap...Read More

Premium Member Bad Back
My back is just 
a screwed up mess
I have everything 
from arthritis 
to a herniated disc

Just this past week 
my back went out 
just picking up
a football the
wrong way
I have been on Predisone
muscle relaxants 
and pain meds

   Nobody can quite make me feel
As horrible as you do
   Wipe off the look of shock
As if you never had a clue
   Don't pretend you were naive
We both know you always knew

That feeling just seems to pass.

Waiting in the Doctor's Office
I was at one thirty once,
Now I am at two fifteen,
Time has moved incrementally,
Like my weight and BMI,
Crept up gradually, in small bites,
Of cheesecakes and raspberries,
And sips of mellow liqueurs.
The jelly donuts, braised salmon,
And finely seasoned burgers,
All join me as...Read More

By foot they begun the journey leaving the pun
Beware of the dangers and tactics to shun  
Between that time and reaching the destination without fun
Beholding the situation, carrying the bun
Before Palmyra falls, it must be...Read More

I Will Save You

I named her Chestnut, color of her coat,

then run my hand from poll through forelock tuft
down withers over croup...such grand physique.

Bad luck
When it rains it pours
Bad luck soars
You're falling apart
Behind closing doors

When the lights go out
You're consumed with doubt
Your losing your voice
But dying to shout

The domino effect
Your life is a wreck
One wrong move
And you sprained your neck

A stroke of bad luck
You're...Read More

With a rough tug.
Pain transcends through my body,
Like an angry hurricane.

A black hideous mark.
A trace of recurring agony.  
Left permanently to remind me.

Falling to the floor. 
A thud to my sides.
A soft cry of hurt and laughter.

A swollen limb.

Surely Things Must Get Better
I'm retired now and I'm feeling pained,
My eyesight's gone off and my hair's not regained,
My wrinkles are deeper and I've got false teeth,
Surely to Betsy there'll be some relief,
But no, only today my remote control finger got sprained....Read More
