Gullible Phrases Gulped
hoisted hanker trips
cranky cause clipped
soapy sauce seeped'n
in taunted tease
smoldered spiritualism scribbled
on dark dwindles

gaunt gifts sieved
sumptuous seal retrieved
haughty hoists spilled

bounty beards blushed
surmounting syllabic touch
gullible phrases gulped

porous pen puked
drenching vying view.

Read - emption
Sumptuous suggestions straddle stagnancy
Summoned by engaging pages
Susceptible skulls imbibe vibrancy
Surmounting latitude notion ravages

Authors serve smorgasbord swathes of research 
Reading's pizza fuses flavours opposing
Issues investigated, valid views aptly asserted
Essays stretch perception, anomaly concepts provoking

Unfurling knowledge tunes recognition's accord
Rhizomes capacitate vertical fronds...Read More

BOUNCING TOWARD TRIUMPH
Bouncing up with gratitude
my heart leaps midst jubilant beat
rising to praise God* for His blessings
overtaking me this New Year.

Propelled by the Holy Ghost
my faith strides steadfastly
ascending along trust’s push
to triumph midst obstacles.

Advancing the Saviour’s kingdom
my spirit promotes righteousness

At the center of a turmoiled earth _ stood the last 4 men

None knew the face of him, or the soul that lurks within
None knew the lives of he, whomever,...Read More

FORGIVEN
Why should I
by and by
Give in to a little 'White Lie?'

400 years and counting
Yet deception, destruction and death surmounting 

From whips and chains
to covert stress and strain

Make believe or pretend
this macabre never seems to end

Like water flowing  from a...Read More

stellar success no credit to this beastliest

Trapped in a consciousness freezing constantly,
burning with the sun under the dense cold tree.

Astounding, so grounding, surmounting you go,
Applauding, intending, pretending indeed.

Dancing with the ocean with submerged bare feet,
The very quest of nature, u barely can see.

No Plans:
My life

is nothing but a giant waiting room
in which i stand

for our life together
to begin
I plan to invade you
marching to your very heart
then surrendering.
God has a plan
the plan he had for us was meeting each other

Dear Fatima
Dear Fatima,

Here are a few words I am afraid to say.

Come to the edge, he said. They said: We are afraid.
Come to the edge, he said. They came. He pushed them…and they flew. - Guillaume Appollinare

A Dual Aspect of Life
“Son do you remember your dreams…”
The old man said, 
Soft spoken sullen,
Reminiscence hard on his tongue,
A man whom few have seen...

“Some have sold their dreams
For the riches of this world it seems.”
Soft spoken,
Sullen still…
“As miles turn...Read More

Shadow from window pane passed as if life
Fear remained cautiously what if it entered

Palpitation rose steep up surmounting throat 

Guys from inside shriveled and shrunk bodies
Few step away shadow stopped and coughed

'Oh' my Will
'Oh' my Will..!


'Oh' - my Will - surmounting you,
is forever an uphill!
thy wreck my peace,
and let never a moment at ease!

Every pause that thy prop-up, 
and every turn do thy rake-up;
the Will not to do, as against,
the Will that wants...Read More

The Scow
The Scow

Unsteady on the bow he stands
As waves wash o're the deck
Upon "The Scow" is heard...ALL HANDS
To help avert a wreck.

To south seas we are bound...
But tempted we, Poseidon's wrath...
Now pray we're not...Read More

Crosshairs of Time
Time plays its tricks in the recesses of our minds;
Like love's lost lament and identity's paradigm.
Nonetheless, we still make our journeys in vain,
As we travel our paths, one step at a time.

Life's generally demanding and not trouble-free.
At its crossroads, we...Read More

Premium Member The Circus Is In Town
Come join the unraveling circus
quite soon to be passing our way,
with the clowns in a clamor to twerk us -
line up as they lead us astray!

Arriving, the elephant trumpets
agendas of aberrant acts
while the donkeys drool, dunking their crumpets
and twirlers spin,...Read More

Feelings
Feelings, my deeper feelings,
Walk me down to two different meanings
Of romance won through uncontrollable strivings

Reminiscing my blooming love in youthful pinnings
When I cried my heart out on sunset evenings
Yearnings surmounting on desirous heartstrings

Nostalgia of the golden era in my early...Read More

Premium Member Hello Again To A Brick Wall
Aaah!.........There you are!
Right on time as usual!
I can always count on you to appear 
and be your obnoxious, irritating,  
obstruction based, challenging self.
You seem a bit larger than the 
last time I encountered you!
Have you been working out,
or just...Read More

Never Heard of 'Love'
It takes many forms
None of which I'm familiar
From landscape affinity
To blood-born bonds

From mild infatuation
To sensory captivation
Intimate life creation
To declarations between nations

What of this ruthless red tie?
A billion prisoners and counting
Yet problem surmounting
Everything red and white

What of this ruby red tie?

Light On the Devil's Chord - Day 12
His words stung me, as the cries from the maelstrom seem to retort
Their scattered, foreign words and wails retching their say
I listened, almost mesmerized,
Pulverized

“Come,” Said he,
With threatening authority

Upwards, higher than the balcony from which we stood,
A strumming low, harp-like instrument...Read More

Armorial bearings of my city Leeds

THE ANTECDOTE
Rile and register my domain
as freedom, lest the skies be twain

yet list us in that yielding name!

The buttress of consort to fame
are silent omens, watching's wane
not living, but progressing same
the voiceless entity of gain!

Castles in the Sand
So many men,
building castles in the sand.
Surmounting the sky...
with the belief,
that they will never die.
A mortal man,
Can not build,
a fortress around his soul.
The tide will wash away,
All that you build...
Even on your longest day.
So,
Why does the pride of man,
Strive to...Read More

Hope To Back
Start you anchor boat steersman
Sun declines in the west
The new wife awaiting
on the near bank
Hope to return to own land
That free air
unbound movements
The rice cake and
Cares of blood.
Go, boatman!
She is lonely
Maybe she is crying
To back home;
To delete old memory
Maybe husband...Read More
