Premium Member LOCKDOWN
Solitary sun in sapphire skies,
beams its rays upon Earth's radiance.
A tepid breeze flows between
daffodils and bluebells, gently rocking.

Spring is in the air,
yet streets remain silent.
Masked men in green suits,
bearing arms, patrol -
perturbed by unsought peace.

Anticipating unauthorised motions,
they wander past eerie...Read More

Premium Member Torn
As fires rage relentlessly,
I find my sympathies
Veering between the people and the trees.

Some houses appear to be
Too near the boundary
Of trees, and should, I believe, stand more free.

Would such firebreaks guarantee
Any higher degree,
Any great effect on people's safety?

Just as I...Read More

Always A Master
writes that inspire a mind not yet alive
events or emotions from your lifetime
leaving brutal truth for the future to find
examples of mankind kind unkind

or free verse a ramble to help unwind

The boatman is come
All is set for the journey; I feel the winds of fresh route.
Let me bid farewell to you all, at least for normative sake.

Never say, oh, we should have done.

Saten wants sympathy
First of all, you mildly evolved amoebas, I don’t need your sympathy/
You couldn’t fathom my depths, if you had a degree for empathy/
Did everything asked of me by the Lord to prove that I’m the one/
Can’t believe He forgave you...Read More

No Good Deed
Try to do good
Smile. Be nice
When asked for a favor
Don't have to think twice
I 'm charitable, generous
Believe that kindness is key
Trust good karma is cyclical
It'll come back to me
But disillusion and pain
Is all I get in return
Lies and backstabbing
Somehow tables...Read More

Premium Member NOTHING BUT APATHY
I have no stars left to count, no scarlet lilies left to pick and in my aching sympathies I find apathetic desires. Mother nature brought her introvenient shame withering all willows weeping. Abandoned leaves dive…

The Mistress
Finally, I would have a good night's sleep
In this big mansion I always have dreamt of
The mansion that once belonged to a man
To whom I bestowed my disguised fondness
To fulfil my affection for his riches
His name, his status,
I used the...Read More

Mourning Motioned
Results restore, relieving remedy
Steadying hopes, hollowing mopes
Chairs emptied, weighted sheet
Remembrances brightened, life faded
A stiffening corpse; a diminishing soul. 

Patience' patient, praying promises
Fluctuating lines, straining worry
Clocks ticked, silenced moments 
Scents inhaled, senses scarred
An ascending ward; an enclosing avenue. 

Dissuasive doubt, deceiving...Read More

I, Republican

Bags of leftovers
Things happen. Life unravels
The earth spins, perpetuating processes
And as we recount our travels
Our hearers marvel
Stories of prophets' heads on silver platters 
Representations of old things
And we should be somehow flattered
By images of our saggy bottoms and flaked skin
All the expected...Read More

Carl’s a doer.
His business is scam.
You are his target
In your folder of Spam.

His mom’s not really sick.
He’s asked for $10,000.
Don’t fall for his trick.

From a land far away.

Bugged off by a minor trouble on a dreary Saturday,
