  images are slow to fade; where did they go? why were they here?
  pensive pen and ink, a gentle man of measure
  pipe-smoke wafting cool blue persevering pleasure
  cartoon humour designed with careful modest pride

Looking For A Better Path
Give me something to believe in
There's goosebumps under my skin
From the terror of this earth
We need something that is worth
Hanging onto that will change
How we live and re-arrange
Our attitudes from mean to kind
Leaving hatred far behind
Bringing forward a new light
That...Read More

King of the Castle
The King of the Castle 



Said I’m but a child
Afraid of the world outside 
Afraid to run wild and to  be proud
Of the freedom it provides
Afraid of love 
Afraid of the dark 

Said you have another side to you...Read More

Premium Member My relationship with goosebumps
When I’m feeling undersized
Feeling something is out of commission
My hair on my arms start to boost
Bringing my goosebumps upon my skin

When water becomes gooseflesh
My goosebumps rise with no distress signal
My body starts to shiver
Like there’s no tomorrow

While my body is...Read More

tugging at the fabric of the shell that keeps me in

Bob in the Cage

He is not nice. 
I closed the door and told him to wait…there.
He did. 
It did not make his mood better. 
It helped mine a little. 
I was far less likely to put him in the pot,...Read More

Why do you always
Twist the words I say
When I mean black
I don’t mean pink
When I mean great
I don’t mean lousy
It’s exasperating
The effort it takes to
Redress your interpretation
Of my every single word
Are you testing my patience
Trying to get under my skin
It’s...Read More

Wardance
Your blasting from the back.
You know your under my skin.
 This is a constant battle.
 Here we go once again.

Your sickness is feeding off of me 
Havent you had enough.
Time to lay down your cards.
Because i am calling your bluff.

Worms
They say I'm poor.
They say I'm a whore.
They say they're better than me.

Their words like worms
crawl under my skin.

They might as well give up
trying to push me down,
squash me on the ground.

There's a spirit in me,
that rises with the sun...Read More

Premium Member Honey
You said ‘Everyone melts.’
maybe that’s true 
because Honey I melt slowly,
every time I see you; 

I’m getting closer to ‘No Control’
whenever I look in your eyes, 
it’s getting harder everyday 
to bury you inside; 

You said ‘You can be caught’

A MAIDEN, CRONE AND GODDESS
THE MAIDEN:
My little Juliette,
my hand floating over her back;
and her tiny hand around mine.
Now, we all sing songs to Capulet.
And they all pause;
they are enthralled.

Younger lads know their remedy;
no, not strong drink -
whatever you think.
But, like if the gleaming sun...Read More

I bled for love
I bled for love on Thursday the twenty third
When the down feeling made itself heard
Quietly creeping under my skin
It's presence came as a shock from within

On Friday I sort help and reached out
Not knowing what this confusing feeling was about
Down...Read More

Boo who
Boo who?


My apathy is my gift.
Without it I would not be able to live.
If I had to always care,
Then I would exist in perpetual despair,
And you would all get under my skin.


Keep your love and share your money.
Love is just...Read More

Premium Member Scorching
Let the fire burn,
scorching; 
Let the intensity flourish, 
Let yourself come undone; 
Feel your heart beat again;
I can color the stars in your eyes,
drink paradise;
Such a small taste
leaves me hungry for another moment,
another spark;
Cinders that invade me 
they ignite the...Read More

Every day you awake you need to give thanks, I am the past
and the present; You are the potential.
I am the essential.
You are the future; I am the now!
I am the reality in that order - Means I am sequential.

CREEPY
It is dark,
Quiet and oddish.
It triggers phobia,
Spiders crawling under my skin.
It is hallow and sinister at best,
And at worst, ominous.
Oh how creepy,
The cell in my head.

Hey boy, I’m crushing on you;
Why is that so hard to admit to?

I guess it’s time to tell you I’ve fallen;

Margairetta I sing to you alone,
Within you rests  my  reprieve.
I beg forgiveness unbeknown,
I’m a wanton man who would deceive.
I plucked the petals of your life, 
Destroying the beautiful flower that you were,
I created you as an invisible wife.

At Poetry Soup we're admonished

They provide us an extensive list
For the error of our ways

But one thing you can rely on
Is people just don't pay heed
Like a dog gnawing a ham bone

It’s hard to fathom
What grandiose thrill
He can possibly get
From making me so angry

He’s the epitome of stupidity
With air bubbles for brains
And so particularly proud
Of getting under my skin

What could he possibly gain from
People thinking he’s stupid
Yet I continue to play...Read More

I cannot stand the scorching heat that is swelling up from the asphalt under my feet
