In Quarantine: Searching For Meaning

A pen is just a pen
until you write 
a death note 
or a love note 
with it. 

A song is just a song 
until your soul tornadoes
through your body
and your feet bleed 
in blisters
to it. 

A fire is just a...Read More

Premium Member It's All Good
Slobbering kisses ain't so bad
and slippery tongues are grand to be had.
Tender touches with back sliding hands
are caressingly shivering and sensually rad.

Warm oil rubbings from head to feet
leaves one wanting for something horney to eat.
Nibbling on nobs is nastily sweet

Noob Goes For A Walk
Noob goes for a walk in a straight line
The distance from point A to B is easy
But going only half way as required 
Going half the distance all the time
Is not so simple as Noob might think

ode to love on Valentine's Day
Ever since I met you, my dear
?My life has not been the same
Before I found you?
I was lost, sad and lonely


?Going nowhere as fast as possible
I was stuck
?Did not know what direction to pursue
?At the intersection, watching life go by

A million ways to say I love you
They say
?There are a million ways?
To say I love you

In this day and age?
I could only find
?In my computer’s brain?
The words 
to say I love you?
In 53 languages 
of the 10,000 languages
?Spoken on this planet

Someday I may be able
?To say...Read More

My baby is shy
It pains me to know that my baby is shy
Afraid to speak up, she lets her tears dry
I’ve been that little girl, mild and meek
Offended, abused, but dare not speak

I grew up ashamed, to be anything less
Or anything more than...Read More

I thought I knew about camels
But then found out, that's not the case
I thought they had a hump or two
And that they might spit in your face!

They will only spit when threatened
So don't be acting all crazy

Premium Member My heart was February ice
My heart was February ice
Kneeling to barren, cursed winter
Beneath weak, broken sacrifice
White skies cracked, and springtimes splinter

Through seasons youthful, blurry run
My heart was February ice
Unmelted, I defied the sun
My coins too few for water's price

Austere solitude must suffice
So long, I...Read More

Champagne
O so languid the flesh ...
the bottle of champagne and its bittersweet curse,
sapping all strength but desire to touch,
soft skin of a lover, then fade into sleep.

Life is but pleasure.
Life is but pleasure ...

The Righteous Shall Live By Faith -Hebrews 10: 26-39
The true believer in the Lord Jesus
cannot go on sinning deliberately so
for there won't be any sacrifice for them
but only judgement left, a fearful blow

In doing this trampled on God's son
disgracing underfoot Christ's redeeming blood
that which sanctified would not suffice

Brace my knees and tighten my shoes.

KNOWING LESS THAN BEFORE…

But nothing to compare with the suicidal, lovely
Red glow of Death’s betrayal— and to ME!...Read More

My pen cannot much bleed.
My heart, though it may ache,

for which I seek relief, but I can no more make

Will this suffice to fix a shifting fissure?
If so, the fissure’s surely fun to fix,
but if the fissure shifts to fixed position,
We’ll never fix its shiftiness with this!

LOST IN DISCONTENTMENT
Allured with materialism’s glimmer
My focus was gripped by worldliness’ shimmer.

Distracted, my heart yearned for earthly gain
I thought would suffice me, but it just gave me pain.

Then I realized, with God’s truth light
I wandered from the source of genuine delight.

A badge of great honor
We wear it with pride,
They say it’s an insult
But we’ll let that one slide.

To their own special step.

Each time I think of God’s sacrifice,
My thoughts are encapsulated by the cross. 
God, finding no other who would suffice,
Gave us Jesus, without sin or dross.

Among creature food, being swaddled He lay,
