My love was never answered 
All those letters that I wrote him
I wonder what's the matter with me
I just know he's got my letters 
Because I've written him two weeks ago
Hear me Lord

A little worm…her color green…and she seemed to...Read More

She asked me "Who's the most beautiful girl you've seen ever?";
She retracted the question quickly, as she saw me nervously shiver;
I'd been with her, since forever as a friend;
Through all her toxic relationships, work and errands;
She'd always look for girls...Read More

The House Our Fathers Built, The Woman and Her Almost Husband
The heirloom, Neo-classical, Palladian, almost as old as light, was mine from conception, so, when the latchkeys were placed over Simian crease, 
I put my ears to the hardwood floor, listening for the cacophony of feet. 
Sometimes when God's voice...Read More

A test of our humanity
This is it,
The moment has come,
That will decide,
How many human qualities we have left,
When we come out the other side and are virus free.

To those who say we are over-reacting,
I say we are not,
What we do now, 
How kind and...Read More

Coronavirus Came From China
By Franklin Price

Show it
Love is supposed to make one happy
Blushing, sighing with delight
Making what seems dark and gloomy
Seem like visuals so bright
Happiness will claim the spirit
Peacefulness will set the mood
Patience, loveliness, and sweetness
Doing only what is good
Like the early rains of summer
So refreshing,...Read More

No turning of anything 
Just a forward gaze

Magic of Being
I am electro-chemical  Being.

When days were simple
Standing opposite to the rainbow, wondering what life has been.
Thinking about the time, when days were simple.

No time for parents, no time for self,
Running with friends, gazing at the night sky,

Premium Member Whata you do
When all sense
And all responsibility
Is out the window
And blown away
By the low IQ
Of the mob
Whata you do

When life 
Is decided 
By a rabid dog
Skin colour
Place of birth
Economic worth
Whata you do

When faith
Those golden idols
Bank balances
And royal fronts
Those that harm

Closing my eyes, quickly and quietly,
praying to forget how I previously felt.

Sassy Nature's Spell
hoisted rusty reels
punctured passion peeled
felon fiery feast
callous crisp creed
lofty lift lent
hankering heels etched

smothered skin bruised
hale cell cruised
clipped, lanky crew

vying vessel squashed
haughty pandemic trashed
loaning taunted trance

Jerusalem now hell
sassy nature's spell.
