Premium Member SINISTER
sinister sinners in Congress sit
with ignorant witnesses to kill
a duly, legally elected President

they are the nouveau KKK of Capitol Hill
why not help the homeless first,
instead of undoing the people's
will?

this type of poem is rarely replied
to
but this truth must be shouted

songstress sonnet seven
what causes me to make
 keepsake of these trinkets
there mire mention causes strain
than I am a hypocrite
with the mire mention of your name
you are whispers made over
a wishing place for men
you are the subtle overance of being

Viewing, Revisited
Thinly lined eyelids seal the window to his soul.
His cheeks sink in, countenance concealed and dull.
His still lips wrinkle down to a frown, without tone.
With undoing infirmity, his breath has turned to stone.
Feeble flesh has overtaken the strength that he...Read More

What dangers lurk
on the dark side
of one’s
imaginary world
what fantasy
will lure you
to your undoing
in such conniving ways
so innocent her smile
she will entice you
most beguiling charms
down an endless
rabbit hole
deceiving snare
illusion turned
to quicksand
and to what end you ask
it’s nothing more than
a silly game

Her and I
I had truly found love,
But at what cost?
She was a beauty
And I believed it was my duty.

I brought her an endless amount of gifts
I maxed out my card
And I never imagined my money was so swift
After I learned it was...Read More

Love addict
Some kindness a day keeps the devil in my head away 
Whispering I’m useless, 
an anxiety fuelled love addict 
Who will always be alone
Mad with the misery of my mistakes 

But if I vanquish the devil with the same weapon...Read More

With you, life has given me an advantage
I've played with the switch and misused the voltage
I've made our connection susceptible to cancer
and created more questions, difficult to answer
I've landed us in a place of unpleasant temperatures
redemption then creates a schedule...Read More

VAILIN VIN DOULEA
THE WRONG HAPPINESS IS
SOMETHING AGAINST ME
IT IS DONE WITHOUT MY RECOMMENDATION
OR MY KNOWLEDGE
IT IS DONE IN SPITE OF ME
THAT THOSE WHO CONSPIRE AGAINST ME MIGHT
FIND HAPPINESS IN UNDOING WHAT I HAVE DONE.

Perception of Perception part 2

Where does perception lie,first,in the mind?
The eye of your eye or a trick of some kind?
Is every perception unique as it is new?
The "Eye of the Beholder",is that the truth?
We perceive what that is,is that what we do?

Droplets of Future
 Rest assured, the mountains, they watch like fire. 
By man, the insidious acts do not burrow into the past.
 Gone without notice.  
Falling backwards, one could perceive the undoing of all deeds;-
Until time, once again throws them to...Read More

The Man I've Never Met
I met a man who was never married
Said it was the one regret he carried
I met another man who married thrice
Claimed they were the three mistakes in his life
I met a man, told me drugs were his ruin
Stole his ambition,...Read More

Sex Appeal

How do we know it ends?
Or....did we end it?
We declare ourselves no longer
pretty or handsome!
Think...Edith Piaf.

Edith married a way younger
man.

She was a French chanteuse.
Hardly ugly nor her face the
color of chartreuse.

Premium Member Teeter-Totters

Warm weather teeter-totters back and forth,
Winter counterchecking each move Spring makes
to wiggle free from the grip of the north.
Winter has applied both feet to the brakes,
vowing to stay put, whatever it takes. 

April rains too often turn into snow
and disappointment...Read More

rise and shine
the sun is breaking
my icicle is melting
the cow needs milking

take the teets
squeeze between
fingertips rhythmically
pulling while she's

pushing my buttons
undoing exposing
hairy cleavage

undying though
trying to attain
la petite mort
sorting and shuffling

shoveling grey matter
just a matter of time 
garden hose watering

the flower
powder my hand

Love destructive
What the F***!

I'm an idiot, such a fool 
Head spinning in a whirlpool
Like 30 years out of school 
And I'm breaking all my rules
So I can sit and dream and drool
Pretend I'm young and cool

With open hearts we duel

Burning Earth
It scorched the land and burns the tongue,
Our undoing,
An apocalypse
Made by us.

The plants wilt as we all suffer,
The planet’s cracked down to the core.

There is no hope of turning back,
As the gas slowly kills us all....Read More

Tolerance
By Tom
11-14-2016

We live in an age where we lack tolerance,
And others actions or words we smother.
Concerned entirely with our selfish agenda,
And filled with hatred toward our brother;

We often try to decapitate with words,
Then ruefully seek some way of undoing.
By excuse...Read More

Hunger Pangs
America unlocked
Is the monster
under stairs
stirring? 
The bottom class
 wondered
as upper class
called them higher.
Master like playing games
 stoking darkened fears
enjoyed teasing
emancipated 
Kept them
second guessing
what step
would be their
undoing
The sharp fangs
of illiteracy overtly ruling
Liked them tamed
and their feet grabbers
vicious
Had to be there quick
but...Read More
