Premium Member Well, I can dream, can't I
In my own quiet bedroom,
In my own comfy bed,
Every night I escape from reality.
I give wings to my fancy
When the pillow hits my head,
And my dreams are like a movie that's starring me.

I'm Aladdin glidin' on a magic carpet,
And the...Read More

Politicians put their souls for sale
So they can sip cocktails
Riding the coattails of the working class
It's a mass barrage of phonies and poison gas
But everyone's going too fast to take a stand
And demand the justice sorely needed at hand
The poor...Read More

The yarn maker
For the sake of his embarrassment we wont use his real name.
Because telling tall stories is how he has won his fame.
Now Luke is a legend, at least in his own mind
and no matter the topic, a story he'd be...Read More

In the midst of whatever has you bound up and under attack
The presence of God can break every chain for the Lord has your back

It haunts the wicked parts of sleep,
where even dream's darkest corners will not tread.
Drowning shadows in the stinging tears we weep,
immobilizing dream and dreamer, frozen to the bed.

We cannot move a lower limb or arm,
and every image seen will prick...Read More

Night Traveller
An ever night
Perhaps as silent as it can ever be
Forever beyond light
Where shadows is no longer to see

To only be beyond that of time
Kept bounded forever in mysteries
Where light shall forever fail to shine
For the night I remain in its...Read More

The Trolls Come Out At Night
Some cat entered my room one night
I thought it was a ghost
It smelled like something had just died
But I must oblige my guest as the host

I turned on the light and there it was
An obnoxious opossum at best!

The ultimate thrill,
Up and down,
Up and under,
The clouds my companions.

I play in the sky,
Big twirling loops,
The wide blue sky comforts me,
My salvation.

In the sky I’m free,
In the sky I’m me,
The sky’s my playground,
I’m glad I found.

My endless inspiration,
Clouds of perspiration,
O...Read More

Your Lips
Bliss in your kiss
Rapture and joy
Each time we meet
I'm glad to be your boy

Love in your kiss
Happiness and wonder
In and around
Wrapped up and under

Your lips bring awe
Prettiest set I ever saw
Kiss me now, set me free
Pressed to mine is where...Read More
