The lion prowls for a fresh meal
Ready to kill and watch you squeal
Teeth and claws shred your heart
Bones and muscle torn all apart

Not resting one bit of the hour
Ready to pounce on the attack

It is a timeless Prince

Allowing every sense the sensation
absorb it all, at once, even the cost
to gain naught, in spite of observation
mindful of the deceit, dignity lost

Chin in the air, being boastful, always
caring not, seems the fate of everyone
blinded by devious words, twisted ways

I cannot tell you who
you ought to be
nor what you ought

I am not you—
truth told—
all I can do is remind
you that truth and you 
are realities of self…

Election Year Thoughts
Written: by Miracle Man

Most politicians tend to pontificate,
to their ideas alone can they relate.
Compromise isn't something they willingly do,
it's do it to them lest they do it to you.
Today, we live in a gulled society,
where many are seeking...Read More

Unsure whether the day is to be cool or warm
Pink clouds parade their truth in a dark sky
Appearing fiery as a well stoked campfire

The dock is silent; not a peep.
Fish slumber in cold...Read More

Our Love
That I love you
You have indeed tasted
And found this truth; 
In return
I shall not beg for your love.

Brought about a simple truth
as words collect the page
Offered as a shred of proof,
a testament to age

Countless whispers call the plan,
now seeking but a line
Hoping some will understand,
it happens over time

Hearts will break, the papers say
while reading through the news
Making...Read More

Are Poets Truly Born To Be Cannon Fodder

Heart struck, blood-let by black arrows thus shot
within soul- can not poetry reward,
those that ink giving freely all they got
playing face up, each and every card?

Fall In Love
Firmer handshakes started out as friends
Amatory infatuations fell.
Lunar bulges causing my blood hearts flow protrusions
Logical fictions assail starting out liking yet,

Imperfect concord agree I think you gotta a hook in me
Nervous collapses assume pressure from my spirit mind

With The Dawn
No matter what you say
No matter what you do
It only matters that you care
And one plus one leaves two

Proof beyond the pudding
Truth beyond the facts
Whose promise rises with the dawn
As love keeps coming back

Cerebellum's Synaptic Soiree
Lifted lightly from familiarity
Sleep's gesture caresses cells
Taken to nearby bewilderment
Where stagnancy busily dwells

Liquid lambent shooting star forms fragment
Vapid vexations vanquished in fantasy's fire
Mist masked span transcends measurement
Vision's fusion surpasses language quagmire 

Imprisoned waking cognition 
held in category's secure structure 
Dispelled...Read More
