Modern Day Apocalypse
Here we all are
In this modern day apocalypse.

Virtual jobs, virtual schools.
What would we do without the internet?

Concerts are cancelled, sports events too. 
Bars are closed, large...Read More

Coronavirus Blues
My mind is spinning as I am reminded
by a buzz word of 2020 that is dropped every
minute by the news media of sorts, 
it is 'Coronavirus' embedded in my brain, 
at night I dream about it and feel insane.

I'm singing...Read More

Cerebellum's Synaptic Soiree
Lifted lightly from familiarity
Sleep's gesture caresses cells
Taken to nearby bewilderment
Where stagnancy busily dwells

Liquid lambent shooting star forms fragment
Vapid vexations vanquished in fantasy's fire
Mist masked span transcends measurement
Vision's fusion surpasses language quagmire 

Imprisoned waking cognition 
held in category's secure structure 
Dispelled...Read More

Premium Member The Golden Years
Another year older
Another year gone,
A little more wisdom,
Can that be too wrong?

A few more fine wrinkles,
A dark spot or two,
Expressions pronounced
Through the skin’s darker hue.

Time seemed eternal,
A lifetime ahead,
But blink and what happens,
One’s tummy has spread.

Gone is the spring
In every...Read More

Premium Member As A Poet
As a poet
you have the right 
to remain silent.
If you give up that right.
Anything you say
can and will be used
in the court of public opinion.
You have the right to use
a computer keyboards.
If you cannot afford one,
a pen with a piece...Read More

Premium Member Christmas Shadow
It is once again that time of year
When Christmas comes flourishing into view,
All around is merriment and good cheer;
Pessimism has thus become taboo.
However, it has long been my belief
That joy must have its underside,
Beneath the surface cheer one will find...Read More

Premium Member HEARTBREAK-
I live my life as if I'm longing
If I'm longing
But I've tried rushing before

It was a hopefulness
Now I can't find the joyousness without you
It was a hopefulness
And every soul is true
A review for you and me
You feel taboo
Through due thoughts

Unspoken Words

As you open your mind,
I listened to each word through my heart.
These are my food for thoughts.

You expect me to react,
I resort to remain in silent.
Does my silence convey my answers?

Upbringing of a girl does not
allow me to...Read More

Winter Parade
In a town in West Virginia,
The annual parade,
A holiday tradition,
Was to be differently portrayed.

For the brand-new mayor, wanting
To make all feel they belonged,
Changed the Christmas parade to Winter,
But most residents felt they’d be wronged.

It’s a sticky tricky topic
Coming up this...Read More

Lately, I'm trying to diet
There's a lot of pain in fitness
All the tasty foods are taboo
Tell me, can I get a witness?

Standing on scales Saturday
Was my motivation to try
But without my chocolate sundae
I don't know but that I might die!

My drealocks Lover

Your dreadlocks flutters like streamers
Your thick dreadlocks spreads like tethers
Your eyes are like coffee mix with white lily

Pronouncing the word Da-da is a grievous sin

Premium Member Too Loving

Some saw a clinging troll,
others the saccharine flesh
of a dark love.

The mother loomed over his brow,
swaddled his senses.
Each day, the boy
stumbled further from that
too loving embrace.
He grew ill-formed in mind
by the cloy of her.

Young girls recoiled,
older girls, twisted rumors
into strings...Read More

How would it feel having no single woe to bear,
In that sooty heart oft stung by ceaseless tear?
Wouldn't the sobs-accustomed soul court pain,
To save those melancholic rhythms in its stain?

It's abnormal for usually teary eyes not to cry,
For that erstwhile...Read More
