Premium Member These Arms Long To Hold You
As I walk the barren desert
With a small flower in my hand
Leaving my footprints in the sand
Swiping them, to erase the hurt

I think of your smile miles away
Soft kisses shared in the cool shade
All of our headway we have made
There...Read More

Happy 49th Birthday
If John hadn't died because of drugs, he would've turned forty-nine today.
If John hadn't died, his fiftieth birthday would've been just one year away.
The paramedics had planned to perform CPR but they saw it was something John didn't need.
They quickly...Read More

IJO WERE--- Dance of the Damn

The twisting lane 
Cramped with hasty feet
Eager to lay off
their daily lives 
Aggrieved with their mundane life
At peace with the depleting normalcy 
Eager for the coming upset 
Amidst the coming sunset 
Gleeling with gathering souls 
Strutting without the dusts 
Swaying...Read More

American Dentist
"You'll floss your teeth, you'll brush your teeth
Four times a day," he said.
"Hand over all those scary sweets
you hide under your bed.
They fight your teeth, they bite your teeth.
They give you gum diseases.
My pretty patient will obey
my orders, if she...Read More

Premium Member Slayed

I trace small loops there,
(Your palm's soft center),
Like swiping phone apps ...
Your arm hair stands, stiff.
Grabbing my finger,

You squeeze tightly.
I plunge your eyes -
Swim their hot gleam.
My slave finger

To your mouth,
You smile, sweet,
Kiss the end ...

Mind blown,
I'm yours ...

Metro Louisville streets, the promise of a stiff drink
A 20 sack of weed
Heavy blankets in the back when I need to dream
Hand warmers from Dollar Tree
A few one dollar can teas.
Its week three,
Flattened in the back seat
In the winter, freezing

Halloween Night
Out alone on this dark Halloween night,
No welcoming lights anywhere in sight,
I swear I hear footsteps following me,
I turn quickly but there is nothing to see.

Walking faster to get home,
But I know that I am not alone,
Sensing a dark shadow...Read More

Desert chocolate Island
Oh Isle of embattled shore's

Where fish in the summer was cooked and caught

Set upon a temporary bush camp perch

Eyes swelling with stars as the Sun seems just within your fingers reach,
Hands frozen with icy regret while puffed clouds of dreams suckle rain like a leech,
Drops of tears slipping past the sunshine as heavens hints prove fake,
Stormy days swiping...Read More

Space Outlaw
3.28 parsec out
We’re making an impromptu flight change
Windstar is gonna have to make 
				a low-grav burn and turn
towards the Big Rocky asteroid belt border
It’s a risky nav maneuver for sure,
but every space outlaw has faced that situation before
We got pesky...Read More

Premium Member The Zoo Story
Not long ago, some tragic soul, a young man, 
Accidentally fell into the well (an 18-foot drop) 
In the Delhi zoo,
Where a white tiger was resting cozily
In the warm September sun.
The stunned young man,
A poor Androcles,
A gladiator without a sword,
Pitted...Read More

The Last Slice
Who ate the last slice?
I don't hear no confession
Who scarfed the last slice down?
Everyone seems to have a finger pointing obsession
Don't know why we have house rules,
when no one pays them no mind
He who calls last slice first,
is supposed to...Read More

Premium Member Sounds of the City
The garbage men are the first to be heard,
beeping, bumping, throwing, thumping.
The work of their hands
leave nothing but empty cans 
scattered on the curb.

Children rise and run late
heavily backpacked. 
The crossing guard blows her whistle
and scurries them inside white lines...Read More

Kid and a not so funny bee
Tap tap play dough
ice-cream and rainbow
Grandma took us to Don Valley
To get some ribs for Aunt Sally
We went to the butcher's shop
There,we saw bees buzz buzz buzz

"Hello busy bee! How are you today?
How’s life? Is your hive making okay?"

To Realize
I wake up again, 
Euphoria spreading my sheets, eyelashes fluttering
And then, in reality, I realize...
Ah, it was all a dream...

Floral piano keys...
Instrument perfectly tuned...
Recalling fragments of dream memory...
The tears are heavy now, watering out the potency of my ecstasy..
