*This is my own issue, just needing to vent, nothing more:

I have had enough of the lies and games
Unfairness that plagues some people’s minds
With no regard for others, even if cheating is involved
Conscience blown away with the wind

Elysian Killing Fields
Your Elysian Killing Fields-
Your soul, my Love,
is the pristine gilded white,
that cascades down from Heaven's summit.
A river that fills me, a dry riverbed,
with your milk and honey.
Your current carrying me along,
to your eternity.
Eternally, flowing along,
your emotional streams,
towards your heart's tributary.

Old father
the aroma of old people pepper air with putrid
perspiration tainting, we sit once again on settees
loosely puckered by pummelled 
time like skin hung brittly on bones, 

limbs locked on rusted pulleys 
prising on old hinges heaving heavy levers.

Great White
Sharp, spikey, shark.
Teeth, a line of keys
Opening up your chest of purity.
 
The eyes: soulless,
Following every curve,
Tainting the nail that drips from my fingertips.
 
Their fins
Caressing your sweet cheeks,
removing the sugar.
 
They splash
Sea salt in our eyes
To blind us from...Read More

Weapons They Use
A gun may kill
But an idea may massacre
An idea is pervasive
It can be poisonous
Infecting millions
Spreading lies
Deep into the roots
Tainting the future
For generations
An idea is hard to kill
A gun is a gun
It's just a means to an end
It is the outcome
Of...Read More

HYPOCRISY AND SELFISHNESS IN THE MINISTRY
Believing that I’m called to serve God in the ministry
I hate hypocrisy that afflicts it along with fatal selfishness
Compromising divine work for personal fame, honour and glory
Bringing forth anguish and misery as results of worthlessness.

Ministry that is genuine is leading...Read More

Slave
Lies paint your tongue with acid
Burning me up 
Bringing me down
To fall like toxic plastic
Tainting every loving feeling... dirty brown

Your eyes don't hide no secrets
They pull me in
Then spit me out
To fill me full with regrets
Knowing every loving moment's... full...Read More

Dyed-In-the-Wool
Dyed-In-the-Wool! 

Stains there in your palms, wallowing, ling'ring, 
Metamorphosed into tears and so drips, 
Tainting where they plunge, and you're unsullied?

Cheap Sexual Me

She only came to me when she wanted wine
Meeting at a bar could do that, tainting each meeting
I always had a bottle of her favorite wine ready
She was rich, married and miserable 
But beautiful.

She had a key to my apartment...Read More

TREATISE
I SEARCH OF A DESTINY
BEYOND THE REACH
OF WHAT I KNOW
BRIGHT AS THE NEW DAY
THAT HOVERS OVER ME
LIKE AN AIRY CLOUD
THIS BITTERNESS
THAT LINGERS HERE
TAINTING MY HEART
CLOUDING MY EYES
THE FEAR THAT MAKES ME TREMBLE
AND SHAKE, THIS MESS I AM
CANNOT KEEP, CANNOT DRAG...Read More

Deadman
Tickling of the fancy
Tainting of the tongue
They'll have you 100 proof
Before the day is done
Fill your mind with hatred
All in the name of love

Hail for you a taxi
Giving you a ride
Windows black front and back
So you...Read More

WELL OF INNOCENCE

You promised me!
You said it last week
“This is the last time.”
You promised me!
But here you are again
Creeping in the dark
Knocking on my door
While daddy sleeps so deeply
And mummy sleeps so sweetly
No one in sight
Just you and I
Here you are again

I’m in awe at the clutter in your head
In that state, what could make living worthwhile
All that bitching, complaining and whining
Can’t you stop the fury of this treadmill
What’s the pay-off, what do you truly win
You can’t ever taste true satisfaction

One whose skin’s hue has stolen from yonder store.
Her dark skin makes her a whore, to eyes that see with intense hate I cannot ignore.
If only I had not ventured to that store, for I too am seen the stealing...Read More

You don’t know intensity…
Red…

I am exhilarated… I am Alive!

I beg  of the human race re. our effects on mother nature.

Fear

Do you see it.....
Do you feel it.....
Can you sense it.....

Like a spring it unwinds
Bleeding deep from my veins
Crying through tears of pain

Tainting all that I see
Shaking me to my knees

Lullabies of rain softly fall amongst the water
 Cracks of thunder wakes me from those whispered thoughts that keep you awake at night.
 Lights flicker from beneath, tainting the water a hint of yellow.

The Other Side of the Road
Verse 1

Authentic, bona fide, with true appeal

From high to low emotions on the course

All I’m asking of you, I shall not force

To reach forever more for your hand

Only skies from up above...Read More
