1. Eight Line Poetry Stanzas

    Humid Sunny days despite Yesterday's weather Bare thighs spite by Sticking to the pleather Pink lemonade sipped Through stripey straws All beef dogs topped With Grandma's slaw End Makes his way home Examines his merits Broken and alone Emptiness cries out Staring in the mirror His bones shake and chill In one swallow he devours The entire bottle of pills Dawn Watching as Dawn Wakes at sunrise. "Morning little spawn." We say, gazing in her eyes. So happy to...
  2. Ode to the Semicolon

    I am not open-minded; My brain is not elastic; It's more like hardened plastic. I know you must agree; It is not difficult to see; Denying it would be silly. My beliefs are firmly planted; Opinions sort of cemented; Rarely changing over the seasons. A paradigm shift is unlikely; The skeptic in me prevents it; You'll have to do some persuading. Emotional appeals won't do; Reason and evidence are what's needed; Do you have what it takes to convince me? Debate is what I love to do; It's...
  3. Momentum

    Don't lose momentum. You are on the right path. Be strong! Keep going!
  4. Drifting

    Me, drifting, Floating, Barely A motion. You, sailing, Swiftly by, Causing A commotion. Hi there! I call out To you. You spy me. Oh hell.....o, You say. Faceless now. Further away. Slow, Stop! Stay! Don't go, I cry! Can't! Somewhere to be. Got an appointment With des.....stiny. So long, I mumble. You don't hear me. You're long gone.
  5. Electronic Graveyard

    Goodbye my loves. You once meant so much to me. I thank each and every single one of you for being there when I needed to listen, connect, learn, engage. I have moved on. You have all been replaced. Technology... innovation... killed off all of you, slowly, one by one. Let's have a memorial service. First, a poem... Nothing Gold Can Stay ~ Robert Frost Nature's first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf's a flower; But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides...
  6. An Atheist's Last Wish

    In the event of my death, Please kindly hold your breath. Loved ones do not wish you to quote, Vacuous death cliches, Uttered by rote. You claim to speak from the heart, Offering condolences and support. But my prayers are with you, rest in peace, And she's in a better place, are insulting, To rationalists in mourning. If you must say anything, Just a few simple words will do. Tell my family and friends that, You are sorry for their loss, And for your own loss too.

  8. I'll Wear Black for Both of Us

    I'll Wear Black for Both of Us I'll start grieving For both of us, today Pick the plot And dig the grave Write our eulogy Select songs to play Don't need flowers Never liked them anyway And I'll wear black For both of us, if that's OK
  9. Still Inspired

    Maybe your pouty, punishing ways Aren't the healthiest for me. Perhaps I shouldn't sit here Cell in hand, waiting for your call... Craving that carefully doled out Morsel of approval. Maybe you shouldn't have to listen To my voice, loud and animated. Perhaps, a separation is in order Though it pains me to consider... Because I'm still inspired By what you do and who you are.
  10. Stop Sign

    Simple trinket, Glaring, blaring Shocking, choking. Almost crashing, Shouldn't have been Looking while driving. Reality check in hand, Toss cell onto seat. Out of sight now. Wow!
  11. Hot Melodrama

    Here is the poem that you told me to write. I just wrote it a few minutes ago while driving home. Sorry it took so long. Don't take pity That these flames, Have singed The hairs Off my Bony ankles. I walked into This fiery pit knowing, There would be Heat, and pain. I'm to blame.
  12. Heavy

    I was in the middle of writing, A dark and dreary poem, When you called... Knocking me out... Of my stupor. But only temporarily. Now I'm back at it. Keyboard in front of me. Mind refocused. Okay, that's a lie. Not really focused at all. Clarity is long gone. Well then, Where was I? Ah yes, Hopeless... No, scratch that. Not hopeless. Never hopeless. Lets' see, then... Days in darkness. Air so heavy. Barely breathing. Mind is mush. Movement, painful....
  13. Suds

    The suds Won't exit The drain. They pool Around the edges Of my feet And in between My toes. Go, I say! I push them forward And back To the left And to the right. But still They remain Clear in sight.
  14. Shampoo

    I still think of you in the shower Though I've changed my brand of shampoo. Memories of you reflecting in the suds Have taken on a different hue. You look kind and gentle and Well you never looked anything other. But, you also seem happy, at peace Possibly because you are free of me. Maybe I am better off too, I decide As the weight of you exits the drain.
  15. Elegia

    Elegia (Longest Goodbye) No verse Only Reflections In tears Words If any Mostly Muddled Nothing Left To say To do Time Continues Without You LISTEN
