Premium Member Lover and Fighter

Baffling, the turmoil, this warrior she,
with fiercest desire to safeguard the weak
and innocent, rises to squelch hostile fire,
protecting when able with crafts she’s acquired.

But lover prevails; she won’t raise a fist,
lest push comes to shove, and villain persists.
She elects tactful...Read More

MY FAVORITE ANIMAL
My favorite animal
Are cats
The poise and movement
Of their body
Stays intact
When they focus on something
They often get it because 
Of the tactful way
They hunt for their prey
The softness of 
Their spirit and the coat
Of fur on their bodies
Makes them gentle
As they...Read More

Creating laughter*-bliss of good humor
Your tactful frankness is widespread rumor
Bringing contagious mirth-smile
Causing lips to part a mile

MASK
Enclave or enormous but pretty king mask 
Brick per brick Rome's whack on an iron task

A shield to that tactful lions roar
His safe I'm saved from an odious boa

Tact Is a Virtue
I Don’t Possess
Written: by Tom Wright
3/9/2018

Being tactful isn’t a trait you’ll often see me use,
I’m just a man who always speaks his mind.
Some consider my lack to border mental abuse,
And at times, others may think, I’m being...Read More

I look and ponder, watch you grow in haste
Explore with wonder, new experience taste
No fear encountered as you learn the ropes 
Your sails adjusting, full with winds of hope.

But there are moments when the seeds of doubt
Without much warning spread...Read More

GHANA IS SICK
We belong to ourselves on primary agenda,
The voice of our homeland Ghana bitterly expresses her feelings over failing governments.
Governments that come to serve our land with poisonous aroma.
And tries all their best to blindfold every Ghanaian through carnal influence.
They stay...Read More

As I Steady My Ship
The laughter I laugh
In circumstances I weigh
Though they play tough
When without delay I play

The music tunes and melodies I enjoy
To delight my ribs
With tactful tactics I employ
When I visit congenial cribs

Where someone I trust
Enjoins me to retain
The fun in the...Read More

GUARDIAN ANGEL
Who told you that?
You weren't there,
If I'm small to know,
Many tongue will err,
The listener is selling a tactful lie,
It's done with a croon,
I'm not a cruel heart to fly,
Every poison of truth settled to comply,
What else again? 
I won't pick...Read More

Premium Member Letter to DC
It eludes me,
 the delusions and illusions touted on the news.
The left, the right, the pseudo ruse,
 talkers converging to voice their own views.

That desire for fame, fortune and power,
 the many who seek to hold that ivory tower;
I'm content...Read More

Fragile

She seems so fragile.
I imgaine you with her, touching her gently,
as she lets her slender fingers linger on your skin -
those fingers with the long polished nails
she must spend hours on each week to maintain so perfectly.
Her face, her body...Read More

The Power Of Love
Living without the power of love
can it be anymore than trust
pulling back pieces of the crimson
lying down naked within the lust

Wanton eyes open  pleading wonderment
slipping off slowly through the breeze
the bells of St Mary's stroking midnight
pushing another restless mind...Read More

The Fault Line
The Fault Line.

Just like the earth has its crust
Similarly  people have an existing fault line
Same as a chisel in the wood.

Reality has its contours of fault line,
Between you and me too it underlines,

Raisins of heart to whom
Hidden raisin
Holden in the heart

In every woman - explosive

It may blow
Every woman is a rose
If the man knows how to warm...Read More
