What right have I to ask for forgiveness
To my fault I have made all my mistakes
Hit with the hand of God in his swiftness
Left to wallow; as he on myself forsakes

To my fault I have made...Read More

Lovitivity v2
Times integrity brings structure for 
all admirers whom are confused
And its measure creates order for
every affair that are disordered
In Our passion, in love, We are satisfied
And in Our love We embody confirmation
Where are We traveling to, in Our intimate

A yellowish day frolics with life, pleasantries errants the air, smiles
growing everywhere as man and beast are one with the leash, 
complacency occupies both time and space, the tenants,
of calmness and serenity moves in. That as being first

Premium Member I Feel Her Fury
She is furious; I feel her fury.
Taste her anger; my eyes open from sound slumber.
Storm’s loudest cymbal.
I smile, picturing trees lying flat in a straight line
Maybe oaks, genuflecting to her power.

I will come back as a storm.
I will be furious.

And the pacing swiftness of the *steed
And have ran before

- for the morphologically inclined

No sheep 
to bumble about alone
weighed down 
with individuality
upon the ground
we surge 
in sweet 
and singing swiftness
across the sky
all as one
to sculpt the bright 
and empty air
with wings of light...Read More

Premium Member Open Season for Babyishness
Sharpness of sarcastic wit
Swiftness of tongue, closed mind, 
Alienate family before you are done

Angry social media posts, throwing skeletons out of closets
Hostility seen months before holiday gatherings, 
Back and forth missives that are not kind

Mouth and pen untethered, open season...Read More

The baby breeze blew briskly 
Like the swiftness of a light limb, 
Caressing my lonesome heart, 
As it bore her voice nigh: quest of hearts.

Obstruenting my view of the silken....Read More

Suspended Transcendental Meditative State
Suspended Transcendental Meditative State...

Temporarily relieves, loosens,
and detaches worldly weight,
albeit bearing heavily straight
away upon well balanced,
awk credited miniature oblate
spheroid, sans cranial

dome to help alleviate
this principled capital one citizen banker,
whose penurious plight
seeks to make lightweight
oppressive burden clawing

Icarus that I can soar to the sun and beyond, yet

WRITTEN: BY Tom Wright

An inner longing for friends once known,
Even some, that flow has whispered away.
I’ve cataloged thoughts as time has grown,  
Time’s swiftness I liken to a bird of prey

I waited about six minutes but the person who was
going to show me did not come back fast enough
so I did it myself.

and often points out my laziness and swiftness

A prehistoric dragon, with a taste for Pterodactyl; 
felt a major hunger pain while penning a few dactyls.

Dropping hammer and chisel, he flew off for his hunt; 
it wasn’t long at all when, he spied himself a runt.

The tender meat,...Read More

Waves pushed a torrent of power and might.
Against the tiny creature seemingly lost in the night.
With only the moon to navigate her path,
Little seahorse galloped—
	Giddy up—giddy up—
Hungry suitors let her pass, tonight peace without wrath.

Hippocampus—was her genus, a clever equine...Read More

Premium Member Turner Lane 1949
Infinite days still linger
in country lane of heavenly delight,
where we tasted the freshness of life
or was it all, just a game?
It seemed so perfect there
before infancy taken
alas to masquerade in a strange world
a culture godforsaken.
Yet!  One can hope the...Read More

Good Cry
My tears are my best friend
my flesh is my enemy
urges out of alignment with my innocence
yet meaningful for growth
the strength and pain of restraint
to gather it all in silence
to suffer when no one knows
is it in vain?

It’s time now to leave my lovely, lonely bird
Bravely soar, your sad songs should be heard
Born in the hail of a horrific hurricane
Harboring hallowed cries of hidden pain

Shear feathers shimmer, glimmering so soft
Embracing grace as you gently glide aloft
Your song...Read More

 This fleeting life,
 such a precious gift,

 so wind your time
 don't miss the coming shift,
 you see Heaven is already here,
 in all it's majesty,
 blindness for the majority
 glory for the seer
