Is Anybody There
Every day it's harder to get out of bed
To find the person I used to be
The person I am meant to be
Where is the talkative outgoing confident woman
She was here just a moment ago
I'm sure of it
Do this
Don't do that

It resembles the London Underground inside my messed up mind 
With a network of confusion 
And Tracks that twist and Wind 

Tunnels full of darkness

First day in a new school
Ok keep below the radar, stay out of sight,
Bury your head in the sand, do not incite,
Why get involved, it’s not your fight,
Zip up your mouth, should be alright.

Rise above them, turn the other cheek,
Play It real cool, no trouble...Read More

Words lacking

compassion, love,



or optimism are

words only


should suffer,


and sustain

for such words

are dysfunctional

and powerful enough


coat lives with false paint

Saša Milivojev - TILL THE WORLD’S END

Just one more moment

Of dying for you

An aching wound inside me

Nourishes body and soul

Like a salty tear

You are my aching wound

Let me beg you

And love you and love you

Like the bees love the flowers

Instilled with Bible stories
Wrought by God-driven gestures
Of faith-anchored victories
Our kids doubt mermaids’ ventures.

Aware of true creation
They know mermaids are men’s tales
Amusing recreation
Showing beings of fish tails.

Having learned Scripture verses
They saw Jonah’s great sea-trip*
Was caused by God Who blesses
Not by mermaids’...Read More

Premium Member Breaking the Lonely Rewind

"Breaking the Lonely Rewind"

Hysteria ensues a small death
on a funeral pyre pushed
into a sealed and soiled
heart shaped box sunk
to swallow stone tears 
reversing reflections 
in the coldest mirrors
Tsunami waves flood
all that was green

On the breaking shores
there the Lonely Rewind

Answer Me Not
The truth has become subjective
to question authority is now rejected
Power is for only the selective
Who is left is mocked and neglected

Answer me not for questions are nonexistence
If you want to live swallow spoon feed acceptance
Social media control ends all resistance

Ups and Downs
we all have our ups and downs
enjoyed in lesser detail on the upswing
and greater granularity on the corresponding
and subsequent regress to various terrors
the trick is to not obsess and get conned
into the notion of a salvation
delivered by the hand of...Read More

Premium Member Hold My Love- psalm
Love is the cure for all…
Poverty, hunger, and war,
Though we stumble and fall…
His love is there for us to explore.

It’s not about how much we give…
But how much love we put in the giving,
We have room to always forgive…

One Cup Limit

I limit my morning coffee
to a single cup,
more than that
it quickly comes up.

That wouldn’t be so bad
to swallow 
if my breakfast didn’t 
also follow.

I have never been to a place called Rome,
And to know what Romans do at home,

And I thought that Spring was everywhere,
Yet, England claims that 'tis better there,

I think world cities are in the dark,
'Tis Paris, 'City of Lights', hallmark,

Standing at the edge of forever
as one thought leads to hell

Welcome to my random world;
Where Angels and Fairies both co herald
Am I a fallen fairy?
As my vision mainly slept I’m under twinkly
A little phantom dream, awaken in my reality
Dancing angels challenge me to fly
I would consider but I’m too sly

Everyone Surrounds

They gathered around the cake like hogs
at a watering hole. It sat in front of The You

that had been dyeing grey. But today you 
painted over yourself in yellows that burst

from the chest. The candles glow against

By Tom Wright

I awoke this morning,
with a seemingly pell-mell mind. 
Seems to only one topic,
my intellect was confined.

I sat bathing in thoughts,
that, to me, made little sense.
God’s had chosen this way,
for my day to commence.

But whatever comes later,
in pity I...Read More

An Apple a Day

It used to be “an apple a day”
supposedly kept the doctor away.
So apple after apple we consumed
and its truth tacitly assumed.
Now, with time and better science,
good health rests on a new reliance –
pills – small, compact, and quick
be they natural,...Read More

To My Love Part 2 TBC
How offensive that must’ve felt!
I’m seated after having said this in bewailment like an ox
Not thinking of the grandeur but of her buttocks
Gloriously, as an ambler, I lift the embargo on this thought
Not letting myself to be aghast at the...Read More

The tears of a lifetime
I have saved in my heart
Each chamber a well
Calmly doing its part.

Some tears are so happy
First kiss, wedding, births
Those tears feel lighter
Gravity less than earth’s.

They are clear and they sparkle
A biographical snow globe
I swim in their...Read More
