Circling the table before they feast, black ravens crow
bright beady eyes darting to and fro, away they go
landing on a wounded body that has not yet died
circling the skies before they feast, dark ravens cried

Premium Member Not even an Amen
Not even an "Amen"


Babies cried, children bled
mother's fell, families splintered,
hymns ended, bibles held

Nightmares became 
not something to wake up from,
but something to wake up to

Sunday morning wept dark 
neath a bright November sun
as doors burst open
and repetitive noise silenced everything

There's a pesky mosquito hoverin' around our ears
If he keeps it up he'll soon be splattered in smears

Premium Member LOVELY LLAMA - collaboration
A lovely Llama called Lin
Got her head stuck in a bin
She gave a shy yelp
We all dashed to help
And tended the cut on her chin

She’s got such a pretty white coat
It’s much softer than that of a goat
Her poetry is...Read More

I Won't Play Childish Games: with a guest poet
I don't want a flimsy daisy chain love
one the slightest breeze will sever apart
Their blooms are as pure as a turtle dove
I won't play childish games with my heart

Plucking flower petals, I would never do
for he either loves me, or...Read More

In the eye of his rounded stone
