Premium Member Driving Dilemma Pickle

I got myself into quite a pickle
when sitting my driving test,
My nerves were making me jumpy
but my instructor said just try your best

The examiner looked like Godzilla -
he didn’t try to put me at ease,
My mouth was as dry as...Read More

Blood Stained on Market Street
There must have been several of these incidents
Occurring in towns and cities all over the country
From month to month and from year to year
But to experience one at such a close range
Was enough to cause me great pain.

I left the...Read More

I feel like a mine,trapped inside a box.
the more I try to free myself, the smaller it gets.
smaller and smaller
 tighter and tighter, till I feel it in my chest.
that tightness feels almost suffocating.

They make me falter and they make me fumble
I take a slice of cream and slumber under the ocean
Fantasies hit me side by side but nevertheless

Far, Yet So Close
Verse 1:
When the sun peaks from the mountains,
It peaks from my windowpane of pain
I can feel the rain as it goes oh so insane
I am crying, crying, crying many fountains
Trying, trying, trying to find where you been

In our life-building engagement…
does genuine love prevail, upholding our commitment?

For this evaluative retrospection endeavor 
what response is needed to show our caring* fervor? 

Within our partnership, can lonely hearts find their home
feeling the warmth from our sweet grace-dome?

Do we cherish...Read More

The Great Beyond
She waits for me there
Just there, over there
Just beyond the tip of my outstretched arm
Just beyond the gaze of my mind’s eye
I see her, waiting for me, looking at me with those big blue eyes
Bluer than the sky, more infinite...Read More

Artificial Intelligence
By: Tom

It appears that we live in a world today,
where we try to convince others, things are Jake.
Too many don't adhere to the things they say,
and A.I. a peddler of everything fake.

The Ls are all mixed in together. You love. You lose. And you learn. Like the stages of grief, they intertwine and flow together. But you will always go through them all. While you learn who your partner is and...Read More

Wrinklies in the Rain
There’s nothing as sore as a poke in the eye
From an old bag’s umbrella
As she passes us bye
Oblivious to all
As the rain beats on down
She tilt’s her bright brolly
And trudges through town
Pavements too narrow
For two souls to pass
A point in...Read More

Premium Member Wake

What is that noise?
I have heard it before?
In the ramblings...
of my loved ones words? 

I must get up and seek it out.
I rise like the house is on fire...
but in fear of being alive, 
but dead still. 
I rush.
I place...Read More

Premium Member Has our World gone mad
I’m confused 
At times bemused
By the turn society’s taking,
Sexuality so complex
Gender needing further context
All my preconceptions breaking.

Are cows good
On this we brood
Carbon footprint the new quandary,
Should we fly
Or cycling try
A simpler world I recall fondly.

Left or Right
The current fight
Politicians all...Read More

Premium Member Big Brother's Pickling You
Pickled ham and pickled beef
Cause weak stomachs too much grief

Did you know they pickle cherries
Grandma ate some; said three Hail Marys

In glass jars, store pickled tomatoes
Do not try this with wet potatoes

Russians all swear by pickled herring

If you don't like what I write

Among persons known within mine barbed ken
Analogous to black box
holding untold secrets,
I share the following self
introspection with ye,
which purported hidden truths
might set me free,
albeit laborious effort

to loose constituent amalgamated
compound elements unmined
tantamount to agony
riddling psyche effort to extract
thorny matters incumbent upon me
versus tapping Androcles and the lion

When the whole wide world shrinks

I was born to be a survivor and a fighter.
That's why I became a writer.
As a child the physical abuse I endured.
Being a baby it was pretty absurd.

The child of recovering addicts.
Even one that still until recently would slip.

oh little nesting doll
why do you hide inside yourself?
why can’t you set your mind free?
inside, there’s nothing to see.

doesn’t it pain you
to be so out of touch?

that hope alone is not enough.

Premium Member THERE'S THE DOOR

I find it funny
bordering absurd
to hear people
ramble on and
spill their beans
they must be all
thinking they are entitled
do they really
not hear themselves
I’m absolutely delighted
to send them
on their quirky
and eccentric way
as I shake my head 
clear the air
and try hard to pretend

I thought I knew about camels
But then found out, that's not the case
I thought they had a hump or two
And that they might spit in your face!

They will only spit when threatened
So don't be acting all crazy
