In the increasing constriction 
Of government restriction 

I offer the following observation 
Of freedoms suffocation

Of daily liberties 
Savagely curtailed 

Of your war on everything 
That has sadly failed 

Of your attempts to control the masses 
Becomes comical as it passes

Good 'N Wild
Good ‘n Wild with Bad ‘n Tame went awondering
On whimsical wings spinning together a tornado
Only exhaustion rested their reality of much ado
Don’t debated do, as wildly a passion conquered…

‘Never take on the wild for it leaves all forsaken’

It started with an apple in paradise or was it a date they consumed

Had they kept their clothes off laundry day would have been easier

Snow gathered momentum to a chorus of confusion

	Echoes of tortuous silence

	A vacuum of restless reprieve

Like moist drift sand it spread its treacherous message

	Opened trap doors of innocence

	Coalesced sinkhole’s dredged mud

Answering unspoken questions it decanted crystals of pain

	Touched sentient clouds in...Read More

Will I fly free
I want to fly free like a bird 
Breaking this wall of Jericho into dust,
Transcending my limitations and boundaries above the sky
Escaping from this miserable prison I just want to fly.

All those catapults of prying eyes on my flesh

Onion is crying
Without peeling
Without cutting
Only sitting 
On the shelf
Prices to soar
Without uproar
Maximum this year
Minimum next year
Unable to know
Why prices grow?
Sometimes to throw
Sometimes to borrow
So much confusion
Or the market's illusion
Farmer in delusion
Customer's suffocation
Problem to solve
Still unsolved
Of simple pricing
Without price hiking
Of the...Read More

But it disappeared as darkness made me numb

We’ll be happier 
Anywhere away from here 
Faded stars in our eyes
Darkness consume our hearts 
Bitter seeds and toxic fumes
Buried in our backyard 
Energy flows
Wherever we go
I will wait for you forever 
In your unchanging solitude

Spider long ago abandoned
Flown away and left his home
Sticky mess entangled caught you 
Struggle in duress for life
You find yourself a victim 
Too invisible formidable 
Forces silk like steel designed
The more you struggle deeper still
No longer for a purpose

Bludgeoned...Intense poetic force 
A satisfying fix,
Warm..coagulated blood

Exhaustion, a sweet perspire
Clammy, corpses... Intrigued
Collected and twisted
Take what you need... And f-f-f-feed...

Strike fast...strike hard
Taste the your supper...
Your controlled calculated desire

The wormhole, in escape-
The place where disobedience was born.

Fighting to make space enough for them
That how much painful breathing is to me without you
Dark suffocation into my head
Engulfed every memory but yours

Cuffed to the rafters the closed shackle padlock would not budge

They escape 
Through a small opening 
On the side of my head 

Liquid skin becoming cellophane 
An accessory to suffocation
Tries to trim the threats
Of an unfurled canvas 

In my pocket
Artauds’ anguish
Stitches together absurd reasoning 
One kiss tooled the empire
