Premium Member A LITTLE WORM
We are born…we live…we die…that’s the way it’s supposed to be
We are all bound by the circle of life…and our own mortality.

A little worm…her color green…and she seemed to...Read More

Sick of Sorrow: Under Pressure
I want to be relieved
I have already grieved
Show me Your serenity please
You swayed me next to you, being at ease
Show me Your prosperous peace
I have already grieved
I long to be relieved

However, our love –
Long story short…
I keep on thinking of

Tuning William Blake's Whistle
Tuning William Blake's Whistle
by Michael R. Burch

a musical prophecy, after William Blake


Many a sun
and many a moon
I walked the earth
and whistled a tune.

I did not whistle
as I worked:
the whistle was my work.
I shirked

nothing I saw
and made a rhyme
to children at...Read More

Mid Noon Country
Tis I write, where blood is bled,
Where the sun the sky, doth wed,
In the heights of its boils,
Struggles lives sweats and toils,

Not much be said, though! There is lot,
Spoketh when, but spoketh not,
That so much chatter of freedom be,
Spill't out...Read More

My Poems
I am certain
When you are alone
They are my poems that you read
Lost in thoughts my words educe;
No one else could dwell that deep
And not be swayed.

Tango hooked DWM
Will you dance with me?
a magnetic force in his laser gaze
tantalized her dizzying breath in adrenaline. 
beats of heart, in songs of electrified music
beyond confines of milonga dance floor. 
a spotlight opened a new heaven 
and pranced a thrill of...Read More

In The Dark And Lonely Days
In the dull and lonely days
I hate to wake my soul up
from the bed of goofy thoughts 
as I see my hollow abdomen
refraining to produce hunger juices
and my eyes dripping the waters
of yesterday's blurry thoughts.
Windows are too far to reach...Read More

Abba Arrived in Living Color
Abba arrived in living color,
a dream introduced by Super Trouper,
I was headlined as the Dancing Queen,
Mamma Mia wasn't even seen.

Fernando was my Spanish escort
who spoke French to me by
asking, 'Voulez vous?"
I answered back with how do you do?

Abba sang away...Read More

Premium Member Temptation
All things can tempt me if I'm weak
Weakness is something I don't seek
To be tempted is a mortal sin
When the Devil tries to suck you in
He entices with charm and grace
Showing no sign of his evil face
Trying to pull the...Read More

The girl in a glass box
I once knew a girl who lived her life in a glass box
She sat and she stared at the world revolving around her 
the world turned and she stayed 
Sometimes she would place her hand to the glass
Seeking the warmth...Read More

Bobby Sox and Penny Loafers DWM
Bobby sox and penny loafers,
donned the feet of the 1950 teens
as they danced away at the sock hop,
slipping and sliding doing the bop.

Pony tails swayed with the beat,
as poodle skirts twirled with the flow
brightly colored neck scarfs caught the sweat,
crewcut...Read More

A letter to my soon to be woman, Part 2
Dear You,

Do not be swayed by my words; I’m stubborn. My tough head will drive you nuts occasionally. I’ll be the last person you want to see or talk to on some days. I have a poor memory and could...Read More

Dreams of Spring
Dreams of spring
The violent storm has passed
The sun has risen
Hopes have been resurrected
Phototropic dreams have been awoken

The skies are at peace now
Their tears have dried up
The clouds have lightened up
Sorrows from the sky have ceased to flow
Arids lands have been...Read More

Mastications In One Movement

Lathering on the ranch dressing, 
mixed with honey mustard grunting;
these inhaling engorging souls are
finding the emotional precipice, 
high up and dangling,
hanging by french fried ropes, 
smothered in thousand island arrhythmias.
here come the fat waiters, 
pushing arteriosclerotic meat...Read More

The Beast
Terror Awaits my heart As the beast stalks the night pining after my soul.  

Feeling myself with fear. 

I say to myself that I must be gone from this place I no longer deserve my breath.

The Emerging Storm

We danced out before the storm
my pups eager and worried
we walked in the rustling grasses
tree leaves whispering to the early winds 
then the rushing air and the sky drumming 
the crows watched cawing from the pines
the birds chirped and swore...Read More

You Tossed Me About
You tossed me about,
You smiled in motion as I broke in pierces,
Did you see what you had?
As you swayed me powerlessly unto the prisons of your heart,
You poisoned my heart with your trickery,
Something that looked like love,
Did you hear my...Read More

Jaba Love the bite of "Bhachu"

Leaves the colour of crimson

Your chariots zooming past

Hearts so desire your embrace

Calmy I now chew worlds emerge

Anthaas is when mind envisions

You are sacred very sacred..

Enemies who demonized  you

Now revere appreciating you

Tributes see rolling in...Read More

Our garden
As the sun rested upon the glowing grass
That swayed with joy as the wind brushed through,
Flowers blanketed across our garden
Followed its rhythm,

Colour fed the atmosphere:
White, purple, green,
Colour nourished the plants,
Without it, they would be lost,

The dancing raindrops perched
Upon the steady...Read More

Barbie Wore Denim and Leather
Barbie wore denim and leather to the ball
Ken her date was attired in a suede suit,
both looked outdoorsy for the fall.

Her leather skirt was straight and tight,
showing off her doll-like figure doing the polka,
as Ken twirled her with all of...Read More

The flowers swayed in the wind.

The post pinned.

The diamond glistened,
The patron listened.
The trees swayed.

I walked out to a cottonwood
Who lives out in the hay
And since he had no livelihood
Decided I would stay

A root of his became my chair
He sighed and gently swayed
As silently he cleaned the air
I rested in his shade

I told him...Read More
