Premium Member 'Twas Grandpa


A dark shadow stalked me within the park
tailing me stealthily from tree to tree.
Alone with no phone, I wanted to flee
but frozen from fear, I hear a dog bark
and late at night there's little light to see.

When he says come...Read More

Premium Member Mesmerizing Mermaids
The seas softly speak with voices that talismanically tweak,
Magical maids in their mystique porpoises of their physique…
Ambient aqua-marine waving seductresses of their craving,
A splashing sylph spraying through wandering waters braving…

Goddesses of the dousing deep show finesse as they leap,
Enchanting when...Read More

Slumdog
A dime for a lie, a lie for what is his; his father endows him, a bouquet of lies. It carries no promises nor paradise dreams, distorted smiles, and cries of scream. A bloody caress by a muddled stream. The...Read More

Premium Member Sometimes love just isn't enough
Upon my life your winter still drizzles
Evoking the morns that arose in despair
And nights that steered dreams into sorrow,

As I sit all alone in valleys of destitute
Where memories haunt pitfalls of yore.

Tender and sweet, you were my ruby rose--
In garden...Read More

Intriguing Odour
Me cars down at the doctors ‘cause there’s trouble with the coil,
and somewhere I’m losing water so once or twice I’ve had it boil.
It needs another set of spark plugs and me mufflers had the pip,
so Dave me mate who’s...Read More

Escape At Dawn
Follow a rivers path tailing wind
cooling the tall grass on its shore
To kill a mosquito with my grasp
I could linger no more 
Speckled a fish jumps 
sun dots my eyes
She walks a tightrope 
over a green lawn 
with a robe...Read More

THROUGH A PANE’S EYE

Out in the summer’s sun, on a bordering fence,
a robin relaxed.  On the inner side
an unknown avian strolled through the grass.
After pecking here and there, it flew off;
no doubt the drum major for the tailing parade
who...Read More

Premium Member Halloween the Night of Fright

Out of the darkness she moves unseen;
her feline silhouette against
the full moon.
She raises her nose
and looks up to the lit night sky,
switching her tail left to right ,
she strolls across the fence not shy,
prowling into the thickening night. 

The fickle...Read More

A Sealed Door

Foot on gas pedal, tailing 
ghosts in darkest hour of night, 
I find a road to the past, 
we once called home. I knock, 
but your love is a sealed door 
with broken knob. Even if 
I could pry it...Read More

Murder
Shadows loom at my back
Nefarious plans attack
Try to shake it off of me
Darkness clings but none can see
Tailing me all the day
Make this evil go away
Sulfur lingers on the fog
Terrified I start to jog
Breathe of hell upon my cheek
Death upon...Read More

It was a freezing night in Alaska, the temperature had 
dropped to well below zero, fifteen below with a driving 
wind that shrieked and laughed as it sped viciously past
causing lashing snow flakes to fall fast and furiously.  ...Read More

Loner Lunar
Once there's a moon
Lived by dangle lights in vacant space
Encircle with no purpose, but created as a boon
Twirl and twirl, lonely on its pace

Collecting stars and herding constellations
Beneath the blank surface they dance together
Catch verses in lyrics, and conceal the...Read More

December 17, 2014 I Hate, I Hate, I Hate
I hate, I hate
My son is 8.
It hurts my mind.
My teeth I grind.

My stress is high
My hopes are low,
My faith is less,
My life's a mess.

How did we go,
How did we grow,
From fiery love
To embers aglow?

One child is failing,
One child is...Read More

Visions
Do you see it in the looking glass?
A shadow hidden by
the glimmer of the light
that sparks the corner of your eye.

Can you hear the footsteps following
but turn and nothing's there?
Perhaps no one is tailing you,
or are they always there?

Perchance it's...Read More

Mining their misery
Shattered are the dreams of the wanting, as they live in their broken homes 
Bodies wracked with pain, spirits crushed as they live out those wasted lives

THE CONTEST
A contest a test,
Also ending tailing test,
In contrast,human on this planet,
For human,test a beginning not ending,
Adam sat for the first test,
Under the roof of Heaven,
Sitting on the golden desk,
Adam lost the first test,
Copying Satan's script,
Thrown to Earth like a cigarette,

Bound to the intransigence of fate

Premium Member Double-O Somethng
A dozen passports, with his photos, confused the law wherever he’s been--
Because he lives in the shadows, and has a number instead of a name.
He spends most nights in casinos, with ladies of dubious fame,
And wears the choicest tuxedos, with...Read More

Tilted Thoughts
Love from Adam at Eden's shore
The dark nobles tailing my feet-
Our deeds rhyme, but thoughts- doubts do greet
'Til we dock at the fateless shore
Echoes would cease, as tears permit
When rays grace my greys from Red core
Now you're gone, your loss,...Read More

What would you think, if:
while tailing an orchestra of dinosoars 
one secretly turned to you 
and invited you into a cave 
to watch his favourite act;
the murder of one of his friends...Read More
