PARABLE II

PARABLE II

Black widow, black widow, where are you hiding?
Your tangled web of deceit lays exposed,
You run in the shadows of darkness,
And hide behind doors that are closed.

Black widow, black widow, your venom injected,
Into the hearts of the unknowing,
Spreading your poison far and wide,
While you bask in the glowing.

Place a mirror before your throne,
You just can't resist the bite,
Now the toxic dagger is your own,
Making things just right!

THAT TIME OF LIFE
Posted: 5/3/2007 9:24:38 PM
THAT TIME OF LIFE

That time,
A moment flashing
before my eyes,
Forever crashing,
Lashing out,
sick and tired
of being sick,
Desperate,
Reaching out,
A gentle hand,
lifting up,
Life altering
experience,
Drew me in,
No longer
the fatal sin,
No longer
the man I could have been,
rather the man,
I want to be!

Eternity speaks

Eternity Speaks

What say you, O Eternity?
What evil intoxicates thy soul,
How vast the secrets of your womb,
Your abyss like a black hole.

Deep, mysterious O Eternity,
How dark thy shadows bend,
The minds of future seekers,
Drunkenly dancing to ascend.

EROTIC SHIMMER

EROTIC SHIMMER

Whispered caress,
velvet like touch,
Painting excitement,
on naked flesh,
Warming, elevating,
Stimulating, moving,
Stroking the entire canvas,
Exposed,
Raising,
to fever pitch,
Ignited wetness
Writhing, joining,
Thrusting,
Penetrating over,
and over,bringing
explosions of pleasure,
wave after wave,
Multiple orgasms,
spent, collapsed
into each other.

PARADISE REMEMBERED

PARADISE REMEMBERED

Memories of the Paradise,
A greasy spoon cafe,
The place was always open,
Twenty four hours a day.

The patrons widely varied,
From those in suits and ties,
But when the sun descended,
Came those with bleary eyes.

The music floating on the air,
Musicians playing the blues,
The seedy sad and lonely,
Drown sorrows in their booze.

Paper baggers at the bar,
Trying to get their fix,
While through a smokey window,
Watch hookers turning tricks.

Ahhh- the Paradise cafe,
It's gone today you see,
A place that held my midnight hours,
Just a treasured memory.

SMILE A LITTLE SMILE

SMILE A LITTLE SMILE

Smile a little smile,
go the extra mile,
Touch a friendly heart,
when you're miles apart.

Let your day begin,
with just a little grin,
then stretch it through
A smile or two.

The next thing you know,
your spirits will grow,
like birds of a feather,
when you smile together.

Thanks for your cute poem Casheyes....good to see you drop by.

QUEST

Together,
Dancing with our hearts,
Embraced as one,
Miles apart.

Four eyes,
Locked with one sight,
Dancing long,
into the night.

Two hearts,
spirit blended quest,
bodies floating,
Astral guest.

Hiya Mandrake,

Nice thread you have going here!!!
Hope all is well!!!


Warm rain drips slowly off the pine branches
The heavy boughs bend slightly
A rich aroma floats within the air
Sweetness as I breath in lightly

Sunlight breaks through the lifting clouds
Double rainbows begin to appear
One forming right above the other
The end of the storm is finally near…..

Sam

MOVE OVER

MOVE OVER

You have your tea,
hot chocolate for me,
put up your feet,
Now that is quite neat.

Popcorn and natchos,
A movie or two,
helps one relax,
and not feel blue.

Let's have a shower,
then relax with the telly
just lie on the couch,
and I'll rub your belly!

PARABLE

PARABLE

Wandering, aimless and distracted,
Through mountains and wilderness green,
Endless paths of my impatience growing,
Come to rest at the edge of the ravine.

Here I lay my head, but for a while,
Calm the soul, adrift to dream,
The folly of the idle flies,
Follow not the silent scream.

PARABLE The Silent Scream
Posted: 5/6/2007 7:51:22 AM
THE SILENT SCREAM

I came upon a clearing,
and here, I met the gathering horde,
The beggars, the cripples,
the blind man with his sword.

It is here, the lesser find
A tongue for the Silent Scream,
This place of undesirables,
Ahhh, this place, they are free to dream!

PARABLE On The Virtuous!
Posted: 5/6/2007 8:50:20 AM
ON THE VIRTUOUS

Ahhh, but those of virtue,
Who stand before the virtuous claim,
To be risen up before their kind,
By virtue, this is their fame.

Go now, you disciples of virtue,
Quench your insatiable thirst,
For jewels and yellow lustre,
Till your soul is ready to burst!

To those of the Golden Serpent,
You virtuous seekers of fame,
Hear not of what you speak,
Your soul is one of shame.

MY ANNOUNCEMENT

My daughter dropped by,
goodness knows why,
My grandaughter in tow,
Her hair with a bow.

With a smile so sly,
in a glance I knew why,
and then with a grin,
said she's pregnant again!!!

Last years old news,
from miscarriage blues,
My sweetheart is strong,
she's four months along!

Gonna be a grandpa again!! woohoo!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you Wicked and Marie! I appreciate your comments and contributions

It feels strange, to say the least,
Her miscarriage happened Nov. 11th,
Rememberance Day,
and I might say,
her due date
is the second week of November!

Love my children more than life itself,
I ain't no grampy on the shelf,
I take great pride in doing my part,
They are the essence of my heart.

Thanks for the prayers Cyn...I appreciate them.
