Empty
My pockets are empty

Don't Poke
Some people like to poke
Other people, they think it's a joke
If you poke back
They give you a smack
Another friendship goes up in smoke!...Read More

You left me without a reason why
You said you loved me, it was a lie
Now I sit in the dark and just cry
Folk notice my demeanor and pry
I shut them out tell the goodbye

Ain't it funny how we go day to day
It's funny how we go day to day acting as if life is just fine 
That's something found only in fairy tales and nursery rhymes 
True we hold up the image portraying everything's okay 
Even though someone wakes with a...Read More

And then the cold had its story to tell again and emerged overnight

The seasons had not changed but as always kept a sudden surprise

Days sunbathing and skinny dipping on the beach felt like a shiver

As the UV filter congealed in...Read More

Premium Member Living The Dream
A busty bimbo with bottle-blonde hair,
I married a brassiere millionaire,
Having modelled his lacy D-Cups,
Soon I was signing tasty Pre-Nups,
And very quickly I was wed,
And sharing his big (curtains tastefully drawn).
Hubby is a generous bloke,
His money soon goes up in smoke,

I see you, across the crowded room,
but your eyes are fixed on him
My life now is filled with only gloom,
I guess it ends, before it begins

Wind in time
Rapes the emotions, vacillating within
Moments shot down in flames
What can I do with these shattered pieces?
I've lost my voice, beneath their screams
I've been silent
Bending backwards till I've been broken,
I watch their love go up in smoke
Help me rise,...Read More

Renovation irony
Cathedral Notre-dame de Paris
Burning fifteen hours

Hopes and dreams
Up in smoke? No.
Faith prevails.

Masterpiece of Gothic architecture
Will be rebuilt
Rejuvenation optimism.

It's us, a well known pack of old geezers
Old grandpas that are in trouble no doubt

Premium Member As God Had Planned



I dreamed I found the promised land,
Where people lived as God had planned.
In honest labour they tilled the fields,
Gathered crops and shared the yield.

No threat here of annihilation,
No fanatics or warring nations.
Our good earth pollution free,
At one with nature, as...Read More

Sheila dressed carefully, greeting first love in fits of anticipation,
Amid glittering disco ball promoting twenty-fifth year class reunion,
Drum master is at play, thumping Sheila’s traitorous heartstrings
Heart seizes brain’s logic. Goodness! There he is now!

Exposing her heartfelt imagined playoff,
Lifetime daydream of...Read More

For I have waited for a lifetime,
To sit with you inside the sunshine.

Without a Warning
Without a warning, you can find
Your life completely changed
And all your daily habits
More than likely rearranged.

An unexpected illness,
Loss of job, divorce or stroke
May surprise and then accost you
While your plans go up in smoke.

Though we know that nothing’s certain,
Still, what...Read More

Poof!
Disintegrated
Shattered expectations
Should have known
The clues were there
High hopes
All up in smoke
Exploding in thin air
Powder puff dreams

Bad for business
** Apologies for anyone unfamiliar with the metaphors used, they're quite British ***

Most people in life work for someone
as all the statistics have shown
but I thought I'd go out and start up by myself
as an entrepreneur, go it alone.

Juiced
Every morning, all my life,
I drink a glass of juice.
It helps the pills go down
And it is healthy, you’d deduce.

But as I just discovered,
If you did, you would be wrong,
For fruit juice in a healthy diet
Just does not belong.
