Plastic Girl
Plastic girl, 
scars painted over
Plastic and shiny,
looks like nobody's hurt her

But deep down inside,
She's broken and torn
A lifetime of hurt,
to hold down she's sworn

So she covers her face,
with a painted-on smile
A hard plastic girl,
the plastic heart has been there a...Read More

When the Dingly Doo
Met the Gingly Goo,
On the subway late one night.
They fell for one another,
A case of love at first sight.

But the Dingly Doos  and the Gingly Goos’
Like the Capulets and Montagues,
Had been sworn enemies for...Read More

Premium Member BLACKEN WINTER-
It was black winter
Dead grasses and trees mourn
Earth black brown and tan skin
Yet moist is dried and barren
And a few squirrels here wonder
What's for dinner
Tree branches sworn
No fruits are nuts shown
Frost Frozen bearing scorn
So cold and barren
It was black winter...Read More

Once I touched the light I did
It was so white I ran and hid 
You never warned me about life that it was like that
You never told me about the rain or to wear a hat

Premium Member Now Departing, Soon Arriving
Winter's arrival signals my departure
  hidden by soft snow in the ground  
When Spring returns, I emerge from hard mud
  on sidewalks and in plush flowerbeds

I'd love to warm myself, to lay in the sun

Head unbowed,
heart impaled

Memory old,
Celtic tales 

Allegiance sworn,
 fealty burned

Voices call

Fumbling and stuttering rise to the fore

Musings consumed interior frame
Shaken with raveling thoughts of fright
Slides of memories pursued relentlessly 
Rattled by visions of terror instead
Banging knocks ensued beneath
Locked chains wrenched apart in rage

Lured by facade of unexpected fate
Time for regret seemed inconceivable 
Escape alone for renewed...Read More

Jackal and Hyde Pride
Your passionate, unneeded pride...
Is hard to swallow, so I’m waiting for another tomorrow
Going along with the rowdy ride
Still feeling so low…but I must stay high, you know?

I want to glow bright and grow and not feel this hollow…
Break the mirror...Read More

Great Escape

Gorging on the splendour of your body slowly waking,
recalling your silhouette in the midnight hour.
Embers of twilight’s essence softly envelope me,
as the morning sun kisses with a gossamer plea,
tempting the senses to compete; real life or heaven’s retreat?

Evading life’s burdens...Read More

The loss of love is far beyond love's gleam

To paint the world's color of deeper blue
And bows the head in open palms and cries

No doubt you recognise the quotation,
It is the code by which Owen had sworn,
It underpins a proud reputation;
Owen's untimely death is one I mourn,
He was one of the best war poets born.

One Mans Land
With bags under his weary hazel eyes,
no rest, no sleep, watching the line.
A mound of dirt cluttered with casings,
machine gun on mount, at the ready.
Smoke overhead the sun barely pokes through,
battlefield stays dark, night and day too.
Vultures circle above, barren...Read More
