The UnderWorld Lying
Deep, dark, a place of living or myth 
Where does it exist except I ourselves 
Depths of the soul, survivals of The UnderWorld 
Hiding, striving, waiting guard 
Ready devour its instints of life 
The Beast, mankind it be same

PRAY THAT SOON WILL COME BETTER DAYS

Soldiers on patrol- 
drones on radio control…
They gain ground…as walls come crumbling down

Fire streaks through the night- 
embers burn in daylight…
They all lose their minds… watching innocents die

Well I just don’t understand, 
what they’re...Read More

Beautiful sadness

Dizziness takes hold, as life's light grows dim
Darkness invades, as realities fade
Breathing stops cold, survivals chances, slim
All functions slayed, succumb to hearts blockade

Empty voids fill this ebon existence
Nothingness penetrates life-giving cells
Spirit re-ignites, blasting resistance
Silencing the ringing of tolling bells

Strength Driven By Pain

As I stare into your mysterious eyes it 
reminds me of all the wonderful times 
we shared, but then I blink and see 
that both of us walk away scared 
without a care. I get knocked down...Read More

Heal The BoyChild
Dear boy:

Do not enslave your thoughts to the ashes of Eden,
Do not build your hope upon the tight pocket of mental women learning to wipe out their sweat against the wall of your voicelessness and fear. 
Do not ask why...Read More

a deferent desire 
in a world of challenge's
and fear

SURVIVALS

We are all from an Osucaste,
those prepared for the gods of the land but rejected by the sun. 
The sand we march on are our brothers and sisters, who were discriminated too. 
They died a shameful death leaving their shadows...Read More

Survival
Survival is a progressively efficient viral machine outdoing all competition. 

Survival is an effortless, yet taxing, mediocrity sweetened by gratification.

Today Survival is a swirl of societal expectations, social roles, all learned precepts pressing against a cruel animal-istic cerebral, itching to...Read More

The way of want, is nothing to the being of having. The scraping of the earth, wisdom ignored, suicidal wanting that I deplore. Ignorance overwhelming. Show for the feud. Will bring about nothing. The tact of greed’s...Read More

Premium Member AQUATIC BUTTERFLIES

Variations multicolored adaptations shimmering in the waters
Of hewed blue, beauties in the depths light show, yet these
Aquatic butterfly’s sting requires distances persuasion.
Deadly eloquence with a venomous tentacle embrace,
But in graceful opulence’s to perfections beguiling eyes,
None compare to the Jelly fish!

Breathe
---------------------------------------------

Just breathe...

Breathe...Gasping, into light you're thrown!
Like glass, your turning leaf is blown
clear of sweet slumber's song but there's
no need of hers - you'll sing your own.

You, newly born of mother's prayers,
will breathe your first of earthen airs
and thirsty, let your...Read More

I am the hidden, the forbidden, and the lost link
Unto the creature called man?
The basic primal instinct, the raw inner fear,
That quivers within the interior nerve left exposed,
Do I exist, define existence if you so dare?
Habitations inherit divergence, I’m diversity’s
Maligned...Read More

FRIENDS OR FRENZIES
How usurping, how intact
the problem rising from my lack
the power line cord's react
chewed or lightning hit, blew stack!

Installed in '70's, contract
before the codes became exact
with lightning striking, breaker blew
the meter gauging it snapped too!

My simple trust, I dug into

A Daughter's Protector
quick! grab the soft rose
your hand now aching, bloodied
thorns unconsidered

life's dream isn't always what it suddenly seems in ice cream's melted hope
not when a yearning man is twisted; turning, churning curdles sweet milk sour
carnal captivity, the new little girl's horror,...Read More

Censorious Ignorance
by Michaelw1two

 Intonate a spirited debate,
 explore the subtlety of doubt;
 compassionately seal one’s conjugation,
 inspire pairing’s deity;
 self-survivals issue mute,
 its sequella, each by chance deter;
 question quandary’s quenching quick,
 empyreal reality’s oddity.

 Convoke, thoughts sum in totality,
 reveal...Read More

A Single's Net
A single’s net is cast
A single climbs the mast
To view a sea of profiles
Catching eyes, some color-blind

Some emails are soon returned
Some senders have not yet learned
Most personals are not for wiles
Or just adult friends to grind

A match searched for past...Read More

"MY FAVORITE WRESTLER IS THE UNDERTAKER!!!"
My favorite wrestler is the Undertaker
He's the real deal never a faker
And a awesome casket maker
Also a soul taker
He doesn't mind giving a powerful choke slam
Without saying thank you maim
High in the air he delivers the last ride
And he's known...Read More
