Premium Member Poe's Raven
Poe’s raven came to me in my sleep, at the most unexpected time.
At first I thought it was just a raven, but it gave me a look and I knew.
Recognizing Poe’s sadness shining out of its piercing black eyes.

Painting the Trash Cans
Senior year, student senator.
It was so hard to do things right.
I was told to paint the trash cans
our class colors, blue and white.

Having a tendency to do too much,
I added my own touch to the job.
Scrawled my name on all...Read More

You,my dad, and me
You, my Dad, And Me**

Cheeks all a flush

The Ages of Man by Edna
All the world's a turdhouse,
And all the lads and ladettes mere defecators,
Gratifying oozing exits and entrances;
And one man perforce enacts too many roles,
His acts being seven deaths. D'abord, the baby,
Pooping and pissing on his mummy's frock.
Then, the errant truant with...Read More

The girl
The girl thought she had it beat,
But then she couldn’t stand to eat,
Not even a single piece of meat. 

The girl started to disappear,
She begged for help but no one could hear.
She didn’t want to be here,
All she was, was...Read More

Pathological Liars

My Son
Sitting here by your baby bed,
Many thoughts going through my head,
Praying God protect you from harm,
Yearning to hold you in my arms.

Long way to go, life just begun,
Beyond today lies many feats,
May God direct...Read More

Where I am from

But let me vomit these pains that is 
hidden in my heart
Even stray bullets have found a place 
to hide secretly 
Cause my home is a crying ocean

My home is a home

I love to see a child’s faith and hear him as he prays;

Diary of a School Shooter
Day 1
I stomp into class black big
Boots they work
Good to make an impact
See the teacher flinch
Dumb ; its what she gets
Eyes judging mouth yakking 
Puffy feet pounding up
And down the aisles just to see
What i’m doing-nothing
Can’t you tell-

Day 29
Nothing good...Read More

Premium Member The poet lay on a barrow dead
This is the poem that made my untried 
fourteen-year-old mind gag and cry
as we poured over every rotten word.

Trapped by magnolia classroom walls
and unwanted thoughts, I recoiled. 
I was caged by things I couldn’t face.

These are the verses that led...Read More

Are Socialists Human Beings
Are socialists human beings?
Do they need food?
Are they capable of goodness?
Do they deserve to be tortured, starved, abandoned, beaten?
What makes a socialist cry?
It isn't sad movies -- or is it?

Why should I stop hating them?
I have the right to punish...Read More

Once Upon A Time
Weren’t we all fifteen
Once upon a time…
And the world
Revolved around us and only us?
Parents were no more
Than convenient caretakers
Who had no idea
Of what was involved
In the singularity of being young…
Weren’t we the only ones…
Once upon a time
Who truly knew pain...Read More
