Last Episode of Pure Fantasy.

Fireball always seems to take center stage,
Except in the last episode it was with absolute rage,
Echoman has secretly loved this ravishing beauty
Lost her to a human whilst she was on duty!
There were good...Read More

The Souk And The Crook

On thursdays, the market place is full
Hustle and bustles' ripe time to rule
A helter skelter trade at rush hour
A busy hive raging with actions' power

From every spot, rise screams and yell
Rise auctions echoes about...Read More

Premium Member Deeply Etched

Deep as first love, and wild as all regret
the memories of you are deeply etched.
And I replay each one lest I forget
even the silly ones that seem far-fetched.

Your smile resides within my heart and soul
never to be forgotten or misplaced.
And...Read More

He wrapped his remains into his souls’ coffin at the cemetery

An oracle told him to be aware of gravediggers at the boneyard

Under cover of a midnight moon he sought solace and closure

Removed the wooden cross of too many forks from...Read More

My Future Fate
I keep on observing couples pass me by oh so merrily,
Getting me all perked up, but at the same time, a bit of jealousy
I am deserving of no one and I know you'd disagree
Getting me slightly upset because I can't...Read More

They’re big fans of themselves
basking in mirrored glory
their own shadows they adore
will talk your ear off
if you let them
they’re everywhere
I unwittingly attract them ~ 
I may as well be a magnet
they love me because I’m quite happy
being polite not talking...Read More

Space Spiel

Rambling of a paired star, pardoned,
amidst a group of twinklers gaze,
glistening the margin of space,
be a part of Heaven's garden.

A certain circumstance arose,
wherein, the errant star took pace,
foreboding star came into view,
attempt position to impose.

The stars all seem to...Read More

Money isn't what you want, and I'll prove it too.
You only want the things that money do for you.
You can't eat it, drink it, it can't keep you warm,
you can't stack it around you and build a decent home.
We don't...Read More

Neither was it a wrong time when I met my fate

Another day’s dime in my pocket

I was confronted by a flood tide of an angry crowd

Two Kings
Two Kings

I love to write about my King,
His name is dear to me.
He cleansed me of my many sins,
And set my spirit free.

I used to serve another king,
Of dark and fearful mien,
But since I met the King of Kings,
I'll not...Read More

Pink turns blue
And the many become few
And the few become fewer and fewer

One after another 
Tormented episodes made real 
Swallowed whole 
What was and is possible 
For Beings that are...Read More

"Out damned spot" where nothing grows,
a vain man's curse in the midst of perfection;
the whole, nourished and pampered
yet this blemish - snarling imperfection,
taunting like a tormentor's tongue,

Premium Member THE GIFT OF ME

I love to keep a low profile
And avoid the limelight
Flamboyance is not my style
I’m fiercely loyal, fair and giving
Looking for ways to please loved ones
By subtle random acts of kindness

I wish I could grace the whole world
With joyful melodious entertainment

Forcefully turn the watermill

In the Shade of Death

My day had been extremely hectic 
Stamina,  I fully consumed along the day
Desperately, into my cold bed, I jumped 
To only find myself into the shade of death 

A deep sleep immediately swooped my soul   
To guide...Read More

An Era Lost
Deep in his heart had urgent need to go just one last time,
To place where he grew up; would childhood memories rebound?
Went with fear and misgivings; was he wise or asinine?
Step after step, he strolled over boyhood holy ground.

His old...Read More

Let the seed of love grow
Come! Meet me in my dream
Let's tell each other what we deem
There's a boundary in reality
To stay away from any calamity 
I know, you know, there's lots to talk about
Yet we remain silent without a doubt
Let's travel to the place...Read More

The ‘classics’ section is not small.
Ranks of tightly printed editions
squeeze a concertina of time.
The glossy acrylic smell of new books
is cordite to my nose,
I dodge a graphic array of explosive masterpieces.

Movies have usurped many of these books
Wikipedia factoids précis lengthy...Read More

Give me a Chance
Give me a chance to confess my fault
Wait for a while, your horses must halt

To preclude from twining the entire Whole
And in trying hard not to hurt any living soul

I let the Glass go from my little hand
Thus, it shattered...Read More

What it Did
Four o’clock sure comes quickly
The early bird gets the worm
Meetings at 6:30
I’ve worked so hard for all I’ve earned
I was focused on the future
Trying to build my legacy
Rising to the top
I lost all sight of you and me
