In This Time Of Looming Dark, Look To The True Light

World is dark and racing fast into hell
grab a coin, toss it in a wishing well
have some faith that our Father sees and hears
sad voices crying out in deeper fear

In The Middle Of The Night
I woke up in the middle of the night with tears running from my eyes. I woke up in the middle of the night because my spirit cries
It is not the tear that falls when I am lonely; it is...Read More

Honesty about loosing love Slam No Blame no Fault
It was a long time ago

In my late 20's when i dated Nicky

And I drove a claped out VW Beatle

But i looked great in a...Read More

3 decades sucked out the marrow
Swallowed yesterdays
Spits out a Queen from the crumbling Tower

Ten of swords 
High Priestess

Husk arisen
Papillon Lefevre will be killed and bitten
Princess supersedes Queen to conquer Life

Through 'true' Love this is written
So mote it be

Trophy Love
Broken hearts
don’t often mend
after first loves are gone.
They simply hang around
sitting on a throne
wearing a crown
called “trophy love”.
Love comes and goes
but first loves
lingers on until the end of time
unless, of course, another love
as strong as the first
supersedes the number one...Read More

TIME TO LAUGH - No Religion Needed - As New Year Supersedes It
It’s time now to have some fun

So less from you of the moribund

It’s time to kick our weights off, including our smelly socks

Time for wishing everyone good cheer, as Christmas is nearly here

It doesn’t matter what we think, or if...Read More

From the Outside
Gritting my teeth
Frustration supersedes
Yet i'll be the last man standing
So many knock outs
So many failures
A Lot of mistakes
Biting the dust many times
Falling short
No! Not any more
I am going to up the ante
From the outside you saw a loser
From the inside...Read More

We shun what we can't overcome.
That's when it is positive image that supersedes all.


Wrong is the element that is not embraced.


A wrongful world cannot exist without a rightful way!
The strengthen truth is therefore found...

My secret love
Diminutive in frame and stature 
defines him not, but instead enhances the
brilliance of his smile’s shine.
The golden flakes of honesty in his warm brown eyes
covey one vice that is captivation.
They hold hostage your most destructive thoughts 
to instantaneously
replace them with...Read More

Sweet Digression

Yet we didn't fall off
The earth still spherical 
Killing me with magic 
Vibes to show you off 
Should you be cynical 
It's allergic

A move always lasts too
Allow it to flow through your blood
The reverberation supersedes the soul 
Step one,step two

Premium Member The Keys To My Kingdom
Most of my writing is self-exploration
I write for release, not for you,
Not my drift here to say though that you do not count,
I do hope that you like it, I do.

Frequently I am seduced by a title,
Though writer, don’t know...Read More

Dawn hurls
Eastern sun blooms;
New day beckons


Morning mist
Hint of rain;
Sunrise supersedes


Chinese New Year
New zodiac animal;
Lunar spring time


Bad news looming
Haiku poet dead;
Pain strikes home

Bad news sells well;
Controversial climax

Twisted spirals;
Prosperous blooms

Cut, trim and perm;
Designer looks

The Wily Thorn
The wily thorn that signifies the rose

untutored in the art of willful pose
to grasp, and sustain a sharp reminder!

His gift bestowed and modestly attended,
there stirs a trembling only she may know
whose pledge is true...Read More

Sanctuary moment
Peace of mind calms;
Joy beyond words


Watch feelings
Stop thinking;
Be mindful 


Strokes sum
Word indulgence;
Verse profound


Mystic moments
Rain hurls heavy;
Wet splashing water


Wet earth chokes
Emotive rainfall;

Late afternoon wait;
Rain supersedes brisk walk

New echoes sum


Waiting watchful

I may be small
But the Lord will make me big

A World of Dreams and Healing
There are times when giants kneel
and meditate and pray
for fright or guidance
We are not gods
There is space and the unending universe
Something far greater which supersedes all mankind

It’s time to show our truth
Our feelings hurt
Often unaware of what’s about
Shootings, killings, war,...Read More

Have You Ever
Have you ever been caught in a storm,
And didn't know where to run,
When dark clouds prevailed, and took away your sun?

Have you ever been lonely, and didn't know why?
Have you even been hurt, but yet couldn't cry?

Did you ever accept...Read More

Storetry,  a word I've coined
At least I think it's mine
The following's my first one
I hope you think it's fine

Myriad poems that tell a tale
So many of them classics

Stupid Bathroom Bill
Apparently it’s a p**is that makes a man these days 
Never mind the testosterone that fuels an angry craze
A testosterone filled vag**a made of real human flesh 
Seems way better than an estrogen filled p**is in a dress

My wife and I had words but I never got to use mine
Her verbal diarrhea supersedes mine every time
An incessant stream

It was like starring in my own pantomime

Villanelle for Health Care
Nothing supersedes health maintenance;
Thus, the evolution of instinctive defiance --
Save for man and his brainy protuberance,

Which clouds the r-complex beneficence
With infinite, self-centered arrogance, meanwhile,
Nothing supersedes health maintenance.

Dino-birds navigate with magnetic reliance,
And sickness is fought without aid, in silence --
Save for...Read More
