Engage in Battle

I thank the Lord, who gave me strength,
Judged me faithful to appoint me;
Persevering at any length,
By giving me insight as to see.

I obtained His mercy and grace,
Even though I was a blasphemer;
Forgiving while He embrace,
Being known as...

Til you

Til you,
My heart had lost its smile …
It lost the ability to see,
The rays of sun, that you feel,

 on a warm summers day..
Til you,
Life had come to a standstill,
It had lost all meaning…
Heartache and tears,
Only time to kill…
Til you,

Divine Cris M

When I met The Divine Cris M
she took me in and gave me breakfast each day until I crashed smashed But work starts in ten

No way of knowing if this will...

Suburban front yard fence

Truths relayed over fences
develop a life of their own
They suck life from the social dimension of fine lady they used to call a friend

Shared with an adjacent street, a block of flats,
The WHOLE neighbourhood
Look it's her How could she?

Starry star

For the 1st girl I sat next to on a rock in Karratha..

Starry star

When I take to bush
with modern swag
To gaze upon a Starry night
Leaving cares and phone behind
The smell of wild and dust
flows over me I roll onto my side I ponder

Uptown, Minneapolis, Minnesota

Even though it’s May & the ice cream truck
parked outside my apartment is somehow certain,
I have a hard time believing winter is somehow,
all of a sudden, over — the worst one of my life,
the woman at the bank tells me. Though I’d like to be,

Dracula

Protruding, rebelling against the lips,
the long, pointed, ill-fated fang stared at me,
(in spite of awkward attempts to hide it).

Stealing adolescent glances,
I dreamed it pierced me, pushing deep in the base of my neck.
I bit...

Thoughts and Prayers

Thoughts and prayers, we hear
that way to often these days.
It's sad when mass shootings
become the norm.
One party looks for solutions,
closing loopholes, assault weapons ban.
The other party sends thoughts
and prayers as they take a...

Catch you on the flip side

Time flies from when we were a kid,
Looking back at all the dumb things we did.
From the times of sneaking out,
To the fights where we scream and shout.

Many times we let our emotions show,
But it is killing me to let you go!
But I think of...

My Fragile heart

A fragile heart turned
To like a stone
Faced a ton of suffering
Midst of tears
still attempting to
become like before
But a painful scene
Front of my eyes
hindering my heart
to become fragile
Something pierced
So deep to my heart
