Premium Member Seraphical Stellar Symphonies
A billion blazing Suns that shine for me,
One heart beats within their symphony…
My eyes expand to the morning glimmer,
For sorrows fade a decrescending dimmer…

Splendour is their shine of Eternal Elysium,
Fulgor fusion fires of hydrogen into helium…
Luminosity lusters of a beacon...Read More

Premium Member Soon The Day Will Take Me

I’m not holding on to anything
not the body or dreams,
or dream-bodies.

Where mind sews cobwebs
I take out a dissolving spyglass.
The spaces between myself
look back seeing nothing.

That which holds this 'I' together 
rolls over mind-clouds finding no anchors.
I leave and return.

A day like any other
Whispers of the winds
Like days gone by
Blue fills the skies
Atop the mountain range
I'm seeing things
What does it mean 
A lonely ant
Bright white sun
Springs begun
Not yet
Inward twenty-two days
As the sun rays 
What does it matter 
Winter's...Read More

Inside the water 
where they float or sway in their rusting roots
are horse tackle,
unhinged parts of eighteen wheelers,
a girl on a tricycle, her bones still cycling in the drifting meld
circle squirrel and possum pelts,
The sludge of a dredging flow

Premium Member Only Feelings
"They're only feelings", I heard someone say.
And the phrase kept coming back to me.
I know feelings can get in the way.
Without inhibitions they are free.

But to minimize them to only,
was hard to understand.
They are there when we're lonely.
There when we...Read More

Premium Member Spontaneous Stigmata Surfacing
Spontaneous sulfurous stigmata sinisterly surfacing
Membranous molecules meticulously masterfully marshaling
Tangible tempestuous tears tangling thoughts
Radical revelation revealing ruinous rots
Pious priests patronize punishable penance
Impious illusions intrigue impacting independence
Narcotizing nefarious noxious naves navigate
Prioritizing pains portal pandemic perpetrate
False fixation fumigates fragmental fatal fury
Defaults determine damaged...Read More

Am I Enough
When I think of you,
My heart always plays a secret tune

It's like the beating of wings
As the air flows through my chest,
It hums inside me, as it sings

Sometimes it's hard to decifer
If it's just a dream
But that feeling inside..
Keeps my...Read More

Premium Member Synthetic Stimuli Surfacing
Food for thought! Quantum physicists believe we live in a holographic universe...with multi-dimensional realities living side by side...and these multiverses only exist if observed upon...

Spurious spatiotemporal spacious synthetic skies

Contrarious curious conundrums critically compromise 

Mysterious matter melding metamorphically mystifies

Nefarious neurological nilpotent...Read More

Premium Member Channeling Euphony
Breaking through the apathy
Of the outside world
Subliminal in my ear
Like osmosis it issued forth
An amazing island of sound
With voice's resonance harmoniously imparted
With the multiplicity of overtones
From all directions
Omnipotent waves of notes of wonder
Absorbed within my cavity
The treble to bass
A soundtrack...Read More

Premium Member trying to be brave
If I weren’t afraid, 
I’d sail toward shores of safety
where pebbles surfacing the
tides give peace to my troubled
courage bleeds with fear and I 
am still longing to be confident

and I would try to forgive,
if I weren’t afraid-

‘Old Spice’ and wet grass carry years 
of understanding between us.
What I wear and you gather into you,
become a language neither of us know,
but comprehend in mouse-tracks of deduction.
You read grease and engine oil, as if grease and engine...Read More

Where art thou anonymous benefactor to offer me succor
Where art thou anonymous offer me succor?

Castaway stranded on figurative 
deserted island pitted with absolute 
zero salvation, sole recourse

Darkness and a pretty smile
In the depth of the ocean
darkness surrounding me 
my invisible enemy
lurking in the deepest part of my soul

emotions surfacing
faced with only
my own thoughts

my pretty smile
disguising my lies
my tears,
tell a story.

I am, ok!
my favourite line,
while tears
find their way into my heart...Read More

Cubes of collapsing blacks
Hemispheres once flesh 
Tiny thoughts becoming stars
Someone becoming more than someone ;

Measure me compassion 
The circumference of yearnings 
The depths of True Love’s well
Sorrow’s weight in early morning sun
A child’s fear of tomorrow
The thickness of dread
The growth...Read More

Premium Member Surreptitious Storming -SOS
Within the still of the seismic storms,
are voices lost of exhausted echoes…
Where words diminutively degrade,
amidst the condescending copious cyclone;

For upon the swarms of silent whispers,
mounting with ranting ruins of meadows moss…
And in the distance sacrificial screams are heard,
thus they faintly...Read More

Premium Member Decussate Dreamscapes
Spiraling simulations surfacing,
scattering synthetic secretions...

Constitution compiling constructs,
chimera copulations condescending…

Hope harvesting hallucinations,
halcyon harmonics hovering…

Eternities embracing ethereal etchings,
engulfing endometrium’s echo…

Dissociation disrupting dreams,
daunting deflective deception…

Illicit Illusions idling,
identical igneous illusory immanent…

Astral ambient abode,
abeyant assimilation abductions arising…

Licentious lethargic lioness longing,
levitating luring landscapes…

Sculptural synergies succumbing,
sensual sensations...Read More

…the greatest poet who ever lived
…our Lord Jesus Christ

Wishes that wash upon the shallow shore,
Lacrimal lesions of the holographic whore…
Tectonic temptations, the lava shall pour,
Unleashing emotions, entombed we gore.

Mangled monuments of ruins regurgitate,
Surfacing megalomania of demons dominate…
Demonic destruction encroaches to...Read More

Daddy dearest, I miss your presence
Always lingering with your love’s trustworthy license
Delighting am I in your memories’ iridescence
Definitely can never be erased by obsolescence…
You surely left me with your great fatherly essence.

Deep down in my heart is your care’s prevalence
