"Think of the cold, hard glance;
This is the second chance;
Destitute and impoverished, yet;
You do deserve to dance;
Matters not how you get;

Prance sufferance in advance song and dance;

Inch by Inch

And love by its surrender
in its power play
may come to break its scaffold
from your heart

Inch by inch 
and by love
they are picked apart
and then to the bare bones of love
reduced to silence
and seen by sufferance
all their weakness
and how it makes...Read More

Living It

I guess we cling because we have to
all the ropes and ice-picks
these things in the cold
these icicles we hang on to

And strung upon the precipice
are the ladders precarious pathways
set to ignore the avalanche
and lay nonchalance
to the foot and the wind

Many aspirations that I must achieve with true ease.

I shall bring forth good will without dread nor fear.

With a Typical Language
that’s all which comes to me
painful conundrum so carefully written
could I say
I say so many things
place upon a kiss
a page of eternity
but awkward things are not who I seek
such inadequate verbs
punctuation to piece together
the ecstasy of nerves

Would I formulate

Tenderly ...
As if robin's eggs ...
I consider the brittle fragments of her heart,
Cupped in my tarnished Tin Man hands ...
Not taking for granted the entrustment of their care,
I lay them out like priceless puzzle pieces
Upon a surface of loving intent.

Another terrorist attack, more animals facing extinctions - I learn
Another natural disaster just occurred - Now that deserves coverage
Should they not be reporting though, more about stories of courage?

Love, so perfect, my life so sweet,
My body satisfied, your presence its treat,
Your beauty and character, for me utterly complete,
Love, all encompassing nothing could compete.

I never could have dreamt I'd've finished broken hearted,

I am no revolutionary
For mine is not an ideal
A noble statement

No riling up crowds, riots

No movement for you to join

A cry to the heavens

I am a man tired

The Forgotten Death

Moral Conscious
Moral Consciousness deserts me
When do I deem the necessity for action
Or hold in what feels like
the reluctant shadow of ignorance
Fiend! that it may be.
I cannot allow for non action to succeed
For those that suffer without

Chaos Mind
Centuries of lies, a hollow myth
Perpetuated by charlatans with great ceremony

The crowd sustained and animated by necromancy
The will is fused, the body dismembered and reassembled
Eager dehumanization, they tread the path
An ancient instinct, hereditary chains

Many a mile you snake,
along the hillsides, through the valleys,
conforming to the highway,
partition pasture from pasture
neighbour from neighbour,
friend from foe
son from father.
Sanctuary to winter’s flock
shelter to the beast,
these many characteristics embraced
within your tenacity, 
while countless shapes
formulate your strength.

It Existed Backwoods
It existed, backwoods,
Since the peaceful childhood;
Where only tranquility,
Warmth and tenderness 
Bordered our intentness.
However getting into life..
Absorbing experience,	
Getting well-known to what's novel,
Taking hard fortitudes,
Contributing all accessible chances
Attempting for a better eventual,
Leading for a self-satisfied grownup,
Are snatching it from me.

What a slap in the face!
It’s an international disgrace!

It’s now commonly used in parlance by judiciary
while in literature this prevalent (lie) I see.

or is there the hint of a trace?
