Premium Member I Have Only My Prayers
I have only my Love
fuel of my heart
a remedy for my mind
winging towards a full Life
taming dormant dreams into verity.

I have only my Faith
nourishing my spirit
a wealth of convictions, a merit
an unseen growing strength
a sweet contentment in despair.

I have only...Read More

When I thought of you sweetheart;
My soul melts;
My heart moaned;

For you are my parts
The part of myself…
O’ I’ve grown

My lips were damp;
On that day my soul grew torn;
The day you flew away;

Premium Member Poem for Whomever
she is tranquillity
yet lava flows in her veins

cut her open and you'll burn

she is Eve's apple
nemesis to patriarchy

one bite and you'll bleed

she is a rainbow
an eagle taming storms

no chains can contain her

she is a pilgrim of passion
composing a trail of...Read More

2. Aria

Twain kindred souls start slow and reunite,
Same as lovers who split and then made up,
Though, twas a mere slow dance, a Pavane,
Taming a dance floor with their passive feet,
As Faure's piece fades, delayed music mix,

Next, a minuet by Beethoven...Read More

To MOM; March 11,1979
This is the story of an animal trainer,
Whose mettle and courage, couldn't be plainer. 
A search'd reveal if you'd care to explore, 
None greater exists than El Eleanor.
She's faced the very meanest big game
And transformed them all...Read More

At night, city lights are incomparable 
to your unblemished smile, 
Those eyes that twinkle
as the star blinks.
You as a diminutive creature 
that exists enormously
within my realm, 
Lighting up all the dark
nooks of the horizon, 
Taming the wild boar, 
As you...Read More

Taming the Demons
I've been there, I've seen pain,
It can shake you, make you feel insane,

There are good days and bad days,
The clouds can come and create a haze,

You look through the darkness and hope for light,
You know in this life you can...Read More

I Shed a Portion of my Love to You
This pain and misery
Is making me come undone
Come and set me free
Before the arrival of the dawn

Sun is on its way here
Shed no tear 
Have no fear
Sun is on its way, dear
Shed no tear
Have no fear

Soon, turmoil comes and goes

Chaotic Cherub
concentric circles clouds 
mushy mists growl
tainted tarred twain
epileptic ensconced spray
rustic rims raved
adapting aura's aid

mystic mood swung
lurching lousy lust
taming torpedic tongue

callous Cherub called
vile veins' gores
dripping damped draws

scrunched syllables smoothened
haggard hierarchy heightened.

mighty beast the buffalo
might we tame the bison
his strength shall
pull our carts
and carry our grains
that we might then show
these people who
great we are that they

in there ability to
even have this breed

yet these mens shall learn
that wild

My Nostalgic Noggin
Help me, I’m hopeless
Again, I’m feeling distress
You won’t knock me down
By your frown…your frown…

Help me, I’m helpless
Again, I’m feeling like a mess
You don’t need to hurt me so
By your ways of woe…woe…

Bucking bronco, rotating out the gate,   
Ton of flesh, an expression of hate,    
Provoked to anger in a pen,   
Intentionally, by rodeo men.

In the still humid heat of Atlanta

Interrupt the cloudless sky

Uncharted steps of the sleepy eye
A change is creeping on steel framed...Read More

Who Cares About Poets
Who cares about poets?
Even when they turn difficulty into design
Making worlds with words
Shaping destinies with clauses
Taming language with pauses
Moulding life with form
Who cares about us?

Who cares about poets?
Even when they turn ugly into beauty
Defining ashes like they do gold
Unveiling darkness...Read More

Premium Member The Moon said to the Sun - An allegory of Nancy Pelosi and Donald Trump
The moon eyed the sun with consummate glee,
You think you’re so great and yet you can’t see
That I am the one to block out your light,
A fact you can’t doubt, a truth you can’t fight.

Despite all you do to prove...Read More

The heady intoxication
Of new love ventured
Buds that blossom
Fed by warm waves 
Of sweet euphoric sensation

The sun captured
Smiles within ones heart
Radiating in abundant glory
Taming the savage beast
Invigorating ones soul
First chapter of a never ending story

An adventurous  journey
Travelled together
Overcoming obstacles

Nope reforming hardened criminal donning

She watched, in horror
As the man hit the nail
The hammer was an enemy
The best she could tell

Emulate his father
With a tiny thwack
He hit another man's daughter

Of bang, bang, bang, as she began to...Read More

but once upon a time I wrangled on in
tried to treat her like a lady and nearly died
taming a bucking star is emotional suicide.
