Premium Member Colonization of Justin Drive
My neighbor is importing kids!
Broken arms and ankles are sure to follow.
The ragamuffin’s ruckus drowns out the gibbons
totally smashing my morning sit.

The cars arrived, a funeral procession, 
each dropping off a hooligan to spoil the day.
I was the only soldier...Read More

Premium Member A place for morose
It’s time to put aside my pen and pout awhile.
Forty years of dreams squashed like a beer can
under the wheel of a wild vintage car.

It’s time to sulk, to bathe myself in self-hatred.
Brooding on my past failures to create,
a box...Read More

Premium Member HAVE HUBBY HAPPY

Always remember,
The way to your man’s heart 
Is through his stomach,
Always remember,
To keep 10 minutes a day
For intimacy,
Always remember 
A hug and a kiss
Every day,
Always remember 
To praise him for doing
Odd jobs around the house,
Always remember,
To drop a hint that...Read More

Unbowed
How would it feel having no single woe to bear,
In that sooty heart oft stung by ceaseless tear?
Wouldn't the sobs-accustomed soul court pain,
To save those melancholic rhythms in its stain?

It's abnormal for usually teary eyes not to cry,
For that erstwhile...Read More

Premium Member Led by liars
Some thinner branches  tremble with desire
Reaching out beyond  the shrub’s wide shape
The sun has drawn them up with its great fire

Yet, without  learning,  there is no Messiah.
No support exists,  they sulk and drape
The thinner branches...Read More

'When the going gets tough
the tough get going'
Why don't they stay?
They must be afraid...
To safe spaces they head out
where they sulk and they pout
They can't stand the heat
so they get out of the kitchen

The Last Frontier, Part II
...Gutshot snarled at Sid’s strange reaction.
“I don’t care if a century’s gone by.
You murdered my brother, and I made a vow,
to take vengeance for Paul before I die.”

Sid just shrugged back at the bandit’s cruel words,
said,”You know it ain’t the...Read More

Premium Member Here and There
We are here
and sometimes there
for each other.
How else could we support
this glad global network
of becoming?

Health is here
when abundant life is not over there,
just past some eastern sunrise horizon,
while I sulk and stain my past
missed opportunities
stalking toward, and balking against,
our appalling...Read More

Long ago
a year or so
I received accolades a plenty
I won this, and I won that
I was on top of it all
I was almost the whole shebang
I was important
I was all about me
I pandered and pounded
I wanted attention and I won

Swinging My Troubles Away
No one to play with, what to do?
Shall I sit down to sulk and rue?
Shall I stand up and cry aloud?
Shall I go jogging midst the crowd?
Or shall I walk down to the zoo?

Well, let me think of what to...Read More

To Slumber and Arise
Just a little, 
A little, 
And a little bit more
Before I fall asleep.

Bend forth, my back
Repose, my neck
Shut soft, my eyes
And hail, my mind. 

A dream
So… exalted,

Subliminal.
A paracosmic experience beholds. 
And I start to find myself, me! 
Flying into and...Read More

Rekindle Your Love Spindle
Work overtime to keep your love alive
When flames flicker
And feelings strive to dive
To drive your love weaker

By dint of neglect
You slowly indulge as less and less care
You offer when you select
Attitudes that in full glare

Betray paucity of empathy
Seen in indifference,...Read More

You believe sulk
You believe sulk,but do not forget this.
Love is yours illuminating us.
Without which you are nothing.
And we also without yours nothing.
Believe you sulk, but do not forget this.

Stay ahead you,we are happy behind.
But no,even then,we have some sad.

Through the eyes of a homeless man..
Walk the streets by day..
Walk the streets by night..
At sunrise early in the morning..
Sunbeams glow so brilliantly across the blue sky..

People sleeping peacefully..
In much comfort..
At home..

No longer do I feel safe, secure and warm..

Cut loose from the rigid regime
of a snowflake, I join with a stream,
flowing free - oh! just like those sweet dreams
that I dreamed when I dwelt in a swamp.

Now We Stand And Sulk


We were the two 
standoffish 
in a small pond.
One day, 
how I wished 
we got carried away,
to a rubbing 
of our fins and bellies, 
so fond.
Life would have smiled on good fate, 
a favorable life,
how my...Read More

Nothing about the old ways

My lesson learned over ice sits
the pain is near my main center 
as fevers fuel a desire to be desired 

Round by round hits are thrown 
bruises on the soul felt forever 
steered and stored in the heart

Turn by turn...Read More

I Tried to Fight It
Well, this is the difficult life I've chosen
I've been holding on to this heart that's frozen
I tried to fight away the tears from my eyes
You have made your wave of goodbyes

I've been alone for a very long time

In the days of Noah

Jesus will come again,
like strong wind, sift the grain
    from trash.
Taking the faithful home,
he leaves the rest to roam
    and gnash.

The end for sure is known,
when doubters sulk and moan,

Oh beautiful friend, where are you?
I need you and you don't have a clue.
Without you I can no longer fly,
come back so I can soar above the sky,
You cause me to dream, now I’m so blue. 

But you're gone, what...Read More
