Premium Member - A Fight Against Unknown Dangers -

Abandoned in the desert by robbers
Bruised and bleeding
Tied on hands and feet
It was dark, cold and I was shaking
The dawn of tomorrow
will it rise?
Please tell me
A bad dream,
close-up of red eyes
Like a snake moving without limbs
I followed a path,

On my two year anniversary 
a new verse too read
canny words set free
doctor said you need

Apples nutritious 
And grapes with pips in
Cables that trip us
And drapes for peeping

At sights kept hidden
Affairs and lovers
Secret keeping
Shared with others 

Handsome ransom

Dream On Unclosed Eyes
In the hollowness of the desolate wasteland
a sunburnt solitary tree languished for a long while,
cast nonetheless on the parched crumbled ground 
a sensuous shadow, my forlorn secret sanctum.

A crystal path I’d built to the realm of retreated yearn
along the contorted...Read More

Measurements of a kiss
When I kissed you

Silk rolled out from spring's green mill
Tinted with nervous sparks of morning glories

Feathers fell from sunburnt clouds
And trembled on snow's frozen laughter

Foxes crawled out from throat's dark burrow
Drenched in slippery rain of enslaved desires

A serpent's cold tongue...Read More

Premium Member Ticklish Toes

A flawless sapphire and tanzanite sky
spurs the flight of a monarch butterfly,
released from its colorless chrysalis
as Sol’s nurturing rays intensify. 

Waves tongue ticklish toes along the shoreline
licking at bare feet dancing in the brine,
and the laugh of a child chimes...Read More

When Old and New Collide
A gentle breeze on a scorching day,
We wake up early to bring in the May.
Bluebell skies frame cherry blossom showers,
Excited young girls hold garlands of flowers.

Morris men and mummers,
St George and the Dragon,
The roasting of meat,
And ale by the flagon.

And...Read More

Just a taste

I remember drinking ice cold water from mountain streams
Hiking in the warm sunlight.
The sound of the wind blowing through the trees
And the shadows as clouds move fast overhead.
Aching muscles and sunburnt skin
A fire burning at night
Flames flickering under...Read More

This Ambiguous State
Through a veil of gossamer obscurity.
Passing thoughts in chaotic chorus diminishing the ordered regime.
No place for the  mundane to dwell.
Who sees it? Who knows it?
Who lives through the manic,hypomanic and the depressive?
Each dawning brings  a new perspective seen...Read More

Cabin Boy
Wondering memories of wild adolescence,
Flash before me like a mental Rolodex
Reverberating daze, 
Time cannot take away.
A fifteen–year–old,
Broken neck calypso.
Gazing through the jungle-o window
Unequipped to fathom what was about to happen.

I saw the moon in your eyes,
And knew;
You smile in the...Read More

It's Time To
My body flips me off and I fall down
Into the sunburnt grass;
It's telling me “It’s time to sleep!
Just look how good this bed of
Uncared for dirt appears in the
Afternoon shade?
Pray, tell me why you will not
Dream now when your
Dorm room...Read More

I walk in drifts so cold, a bitter bite.
My boots with holes, a stab of pain for miles.
The flakes do dance around my head tonight.
Each one intent to stick upon snow piles.

Off the blue 
languid hours,
a labyrinth,
sensible things
surging impressions...
Infinite purples
rainbow fragments

the familiar the strange
momentary phenomena
a sunburnt glow..

How you look at me like I'm the only girl in the place

The Cherry Blossom Weep
Sunburnt kisses soothing drenched down
bowing limbs   wind torn and tossed
frozen tips     at times
Uprooted and reckless
broken and helpless
thinned out tops   shaking
with every frigid breath
battling another storm
with Autumn approaching
how will I ever stay warm

Summer Days
Masses of sunburnt grass, 
Sway with delicate ease. 
Seduced by the composer   
Of the soothing May breeze.

With humpy gluttonous crows 
Giving weary approval   
From tops of telephone...Read More
