Life To Let
Friends and I in a familiar chat.
"Who would give me life," I asked.
       "Your life's yours already," they said.
"So, it seems, soon taken from me."

Take Me As I Am
You’re too late to apologize to me

For your foolish, senseless decision-making 

Accidents happen, but you purposely

Lied to me in my face – teary-eyed, terribly shaking 

Can’t deny your lack of honesty hurt me badly

You wrecked me up real good, so...Read More

The seamless sky called life glazed in cloudless serenity,
in the rhapsody of the zephyr floated a butterfly free.
On its wings I painted in colors the motif of my identity
for flowers of the valley bloomed in all...Read More

Premium Member The Truth Of Rainbows

Heaven, shedding dark tears

Makes this dull, grumpy day

Sulky storms puff their chests

Dressed in suits, flannel gray

They brood and they grumble

And complain of their mood

They're damp and foreboding

Yes, they're really quite rude

But the weather is improving

Rainbows parting the shrouds

God's squeezing out...Read More

Aphradere: God's Our Emerald Compass
Our hearts of love is but a fire and ice I can’t suffice
It’s a kind of love, a type thereof, with a high price
A price, I, unfortunately, cannot completely afford
Not to mention all these sick emotions that I hoard

It’s a...Read More

Drained by my Thot Train
Drain away the pain that I feel
Drain away the rain that’s real 
Frozen in fire of your desire
Stay a while longer and admire
The healing rain that drains away the pain,
Nourishing the grains of His fruitful gain
Refrain from driving me downright...Read More

Brought Low till I Had Enough
I found out, walking the difficult route,
That falling in love ain’t a friend at all
No one can hear my midnight shout, I’m out
Try to knock me out, but I’ll stand tall
Help is on the way if anything bad happens to...Read More

Love is won, then it conquers all through patience
But that's impossible without being kind
The two above build one to be honest
Suppressing all the feelings of jealousy
Silencing all tongues not to be boastful
Bruising egos that result from one's pride

Only the wise...Read More

He scraped the paint from his pallet and smeared it on his canvas
On his mind was a folksy sun rise
A glowing medallion, triumphant
Blazing in orange, yellow and red
Seagulls flying over the horizon bed.

Ooh! Ooh! Monkey-Fingers!
Stabby, jabby, chunky fingers,
Pawing at my touchscreen like a primate in a zoo,
Hit, miss, proddy, pokey,
Stupid smartphones just provoke me,
How can I hit ONE key with a finger made for two?

Smug little kiddywinkies,
Typing with their dinky pinkies,
Flying round...Read More

Halloween horror

Sally hides sweet candy under table
(Since sweet candy makes teeth decay)

Mummy angry...
Finds trick treat candy boxes empty
Jelly beans, fruit salad, black jacks  - whole stash eaten!

Tummy aches
Sally spews vomit
Nasty vomit shows candy

Daddy cross 
Mummy livid...

Vrai Foi I
Forth, backward he espies
Soaked in the state of melancholy
Dwindle out of joy
Looking sluggish somber, sulky

Seems fidelity is gone
affiliated with termination cum uncertainty
baffled of what tomorrow will behoove
pondering on apparel and edibility

the low waves are sulky as they roll in by making dull sounds; 
the smile on two boys searching for seashells

My Sister's Baby
Fastened in my arms, I rock our
embrace back and forth til
her ivory lids slump
downward in forfeit.
Her wee nails fold into 
a prayer, as her rosy bottom lip
juts out, all lustrous and glossy.
I open my mouth and sing
the songs my own...Read More
