Premium Member In A Pickle
I  did not get it initially, 
Brushing it off superficially. 
My taste buds turned fickle, 
Demanding a pickle;
Pregnant I am, now officially!

Trumpery has nothing to do with the card game bridge, the trump card
in a round defeats all the others, the most powerful card;
It is the practice that superficially

have very little real value, worthless stuff, one needs...Read More

everything there is 
everyone there is 

before my eyesight 
some are captured in memory 
some are gone superficially 

all alone on this ground
daylight to dark night 

alone, lonely into me I fight
for nothing!

Premium Member Why is It
Most don't look beyond or below the surface,
to find other's uniqueness and intelligence.
Age, Weight, shape, accepted look of the day,
should these really be what kindles interest,
and determines whether acceptance is extended to another?
These are standards not of the heart, or...Read More

The World is Weeping
The world is weeping, can you hear it? 

For the first child whose innocence we stole, for the first tree we cut, for the first soul we omitted..the earth wept......faint.....distant...unimportant

As a writer I know many words.....but none of which grasp...Read More

Mirrors are cruel
Revealing cold lies
Hidden imperfections
Upon closer reflection
They're worse than an ad
Because they tell you
Everything you don't want to hear
But these lies by the mirror
Are merely a reflection
Of awful societal standards
And everybody wants to be somebody
But nobody wants to be...Read More

 The veil was removed, her face was seen
Her long dark hair well combed, glitters.
Just like an orange on its tree, her head stands firm, perfectly placed on her neck
The radiant look her eyes gives is superficially attractive...Read More

Race For Tomorrow
Just what is race?
What does it mean?
By book
A group of common ancestry
Superficially diverged
             By only what is seen

Will differences
Not be mended
In future
Will there be a race for tomorrow

Let the games begin, may the best swimmer win, so is the tale at inception.
Unlike Michael Phelps, we are no geniuses at backstrokes.
It's a miracle, out of millions of possible combinations, we even won the race.

There's worse things we
could be than being
color opposed.
Educated without
Beautiful and alone
The world without
a trophy case.
Or trophy case
without the world
in it
 or a god to spin it.
To appear you have 
it altogether,
while self is
There's worst things
than someone
loving you
and afraid
your dirt won't...Read More

Just as surely 
My mind is also a meadow
Choked with out-of-control 
Wild creations
And filled deep with bullshit in places
May seem attractive to another’s eyes
Superficially inviting
But difficult and impractical 
To live in

To Collect
Seasons pass as tendencies fall
Tripping over laws that order societal resolve
A laughing matter not for the victims assailants never caught
Consuming thoughts processed opposite happy holidays

Timely reminders of days with doubt of faith
Following what remnants of personality are left
In remembrance to...Read More

artificially based
why accept 
that would
not be 
it would be  
based only
concerned with
how things
appear on 
the outside
would be quit shallow  
it would be lacking in depth
what good would

Keeping it real from the heart: We need to talk, Why is it that some people get away with things in society & others don't. It's a double standard. Also how come atheists have so much hate in their system...Read More

Gossip 2
Written: by Miracle Man

Hardly anything unseen can remain hidden for long.
Ravenous appetites for gossip always seek to prolong,

We can never be unchained from things in our past,
To others, in thought, were coupled hard and fast.

Though superficially interred we think...Read More

Growing, manifesting, enlarging as the minutes pass. Teeth mashing together, grinding back and forth, licking its lips voraciously, eyes keening in for a meal, done letting time circle around, done chasing it down like a dog chases its tail.
It's ready.

Time Traveler
I'm a time traveler
Traveled from HEAVEN as a battler 
Into a time that was factured
Lunar cycle 
In ancient times of the bible 
I came to enlighten 
For sparks ignited 
In the darkness hiding 
In the midst of the lightning...Read More

 "Seeing Through The Eyes!"

 When You Look Into The Eyes,
 What Is It That You See?
 Do You See Deeply Within,
 Or Do You See Superficially?
 Do You See How People's Choices,
 Of Life,...Read More

Black rainless clouds
The dark cloud lifted to find ourselves on the global stage
In spite of the stage fright, we united into a fist of courage
The arable land awaits, but instead erodes from our uncertain steps
The endless boycott and protestations, but the rain...Read More

And all it caresses is warmed by its kiss. 
It revives each day with a new beginning,

Titless Girl
This reality is a titless girl:
Nothing to offer superficially;
But if I peeped under her breast,
I'd receive what'd put my soul to 
Sadly, I haven't the greatest of 
To blow my fallible beliefs out of my 
What's offered underneath will stay...Read More

just I met
and gazed into
exquisite eyes shining as
brilliantly as the moonlight
casting its delicate reflection across
the steel gray waters of the deepest sea
of the darkest night.
I saw standing there
waiting patiently for me
smile is the source of my
as radiant as the glowing...Read More
