The Souk And The Crook

On thursdays, the market place is full
Hustle and bustles' ripe time to rule
A helter skelter trade at rush hour
A busy hive raging with actions' power

From every spot, rise screams and yell
Rise auctions echoes about...Read More

Premium Member A Fugitive She Never Knew
As still as night, her heart aghast,
she pondered of her fellow's fairing,
for word had spread of his capture.
She dreamt of blooming meadows past,
as butterfly spies enrapture
lunch baskets and laughter sharing.
Alas, now shadows are glaring.
A fugitive, she never knew,
throughout each lovely...Read More

Premium Member MISTAKES - Am I A Fake
What to look for?
Where do errors lie?
Are they in the eye of the beholder
or do they lie?

I believe I’m a poet,
a prophet of paraphrase,
a swindler of alliteration,
the rhyme above all reason.

I think I know!
Am I who I think I am?

Premium Member true one lives in silent
a thief screams out that
he did not steal anything;

a plagiarist screams out that
he is a true writer;

a swindler politician screams out that 
he is a real democratic leader;

but; a true one
always lives in silent

Premium Member A Deal with Magic Matt
Full scale sleep. 
Where is it? 
What is it? 
Can you buy it at a grocery?

Oh, wow, magic Matt.
You are selling it!
Today, but only to the first customer!

And this one is a worry-free pill?
It does sound wonderful. Will these two...Read More

Bitter Taste
The bitter taste of parting still grips my tongue,
But what good are words when nothing remains to be said?
I am the fool of fortune the swindler,
And these are the things left behind--
A memory of a memory,
A nocturnal iteration,
A tantalizing ambiance,
And...Read More

I’m watching a movie about Oskar Schindler
Who I assumed was just another profligate swindler
A hedonistic man if ever there was one
Great in business but involved with despicable scum

Self serving, self righteous, and all so shiny
Making deals with the Nazi and...Read More

That low bred confidence man!
That snooking swindler who took me for a fool.
“Hey Gregg, you thief!
You owe me still, even as I rot here,
Regrettably ensconced inside this bursting old boneyard, 
Final resting grounds of a thousand parted pilgrims,
No doubt...Read More

Why Don't You Leo
Death isn’t that significant, is it?
just like life is nothing peculiar.

The importance, however, is that life is given 
to an individual only once and cannot be shared with others, 
whether it was acquired through one’s own will or given by...Read More

Premium Member Nightmare
Dreams are so much a part of us
and yet not a part of us. 
I've often wondered about dreams.
What do they mean,
all those dreams
that flash by so quickly
only to pass from memory
as though they were never there.
Today I had a...Read More

Consonant to your mesmerising charm,
I camouflage all declamatories,
Unavowed in step with the times,
End up at a secluded place.

Swindler you were, failure of my judgement,
You detriment my feelings, corrode my interior,
Eclipsed my radiance, walked over my prejudice,
I writhed in pain, blanked...Read More

The Future
As she showed her palm to the Seer
The air was thick with dread.
The girl's eyes were filled with her fear,
when her palm was read.

"You will meet a good man..."
"Tall, dark, and handsome?" the...Read More

A Broken Trust
What have I uttered!?
Where do I stand?!

A role is to be played
The bells shall ring
A dove with a wounded wing
A Satan in an angels attire
The heart shall weep
A sinister image shall creep

Empty streets I walk  and walk
Aimed at the lonely riverside
There's nothing to think of, just stand there
Just stand there and quietly stare
At the water at my feet 
Struggling to flow down my face
While my favorite music plays.
Empty streets...Read More

Mischievous thoughts? 
She does not bulge,
Lip marks in red, 
On the white shirt;

True she could be?
A red herring,
Takes me now,
For a wild ride;

Naughty betrayal?
Loose collar free,
In  the playful,
Night aroma;

Indulgent miss?
Slaughters desire,
"Touch me not" streak,
Spells disaster; 

Pumpkin eater?
"My foot" to...Read More

Swindler Serenade
Oh cheaters near and far,
stop being what you are!
Our love should not be tested
because it’s well invested.
You expect us to believe,
but your actions do deceive.
Your mistakes are justified
hoping we’ll be pacified
Now mix it with some science,
resisting our defiance.
We measure with...Read More

Enchantress (Let me chisel talk you) (Part One)
O! Ferocious temptress of the land, sea and air.
Spread not thy leathery wings in fancy flights.
From the generic evolution, into future clones.
Lust raptures into unknown worlds of imagination.
Amazon warrior of deadly desires,
Hold my sword, it trembles in my hands.
