Premium Member THIS JANUARY MY ETERNITY RINGS-
"In my battered whelms;
Those profiles which I never win;
My healing has just begun,

they begin...

The winter storms;
often remind me of my birth
my birth when I was born

in the cold months of January...

there was I buried out of my mother's womb;

Now not...Read More

Premium Member If You Don't Want Your Money
Very rarely will you ever see,
anyone who hates money more than yours truly.
"Well, If you don't want your money,"
they say to me constantly,
"you can always give it to me."
They don't even hear themselves sadly,
not realizing that money, are the chains...Read More

Bang! Bang! Bang!

Shattering windows and, smashing glasses 
Sending people pouring out in the street
Gun shots penetrating the clouds 
With a message that is very loud

Change
Change is hard for everyone,
But attitude helps you overcome 

The hesitation to try something new,
Because of a positive  “can do”

Erases the doubt,
And gives you clout

To accept a new challenge,
Perhaps learn a new talent

Or change with the times,
Leaving the past...Read More

Walking Through Life
So often we are just walking through the motions,
Like our daily grind without emotion

Or thought actually,
What a pity

You should start a day with good intent,
To be aware and cognizant 

Of the beauty of life, so be it a struggle,
To prove...Read More

My internal experience of depression
today shames
external ecology of elation,
all I might know as warm extended family
of profoundly peaceful impressions
still bare surviving
at end of this slow-fading thread.

This morning
one Epictetus sentence
speaks of blaming left-hemisphere dominant GodVoices:

Premium Member Better not
Mirror mirror on the wall,
better never fall at all,
As long as you hang in there,
People will stop and stare,
To see their faces to hearts desire!
But if you break to many tiny sizes,
People will fear your prickly pieces,
and sweep you away...Read More

Feet


They first appear propped up
at the end of the bed naked as if 
they had just sprouted from my ankles.

I rarely give thought to my feet, 
much less the feet of others, aesthetically, I mean,

Down the hill they returned, with torn uniforms and torn bodies.

Feeling left out by the cousins. 
No one could answer this.

Instantly figuring the instigator.

Not my reality, she said. The room was silent.

I want you in my life;
more than anyone else.

I want to hold you;
till Earth fades away.

I want your kiss;
till we can’t breathe.

I want you;
while we live.

Just you;
till death.

You;
me.
