"There's a strange frenzy in my head,
of birds flying,
each particle circulating on its own.
Is the one I love everywhere?"
"The Briny Balm"
I went to the sea to heal my heart.
I found a balm
in the sighing waves,
the soothing salty air.
She's a fickle lover; It's often said
by sailors and seaman...
This one is about killing someone you love, and the thought process that runs through your mind. Trying to get into the mind of a murderer is hard work, though.

I call it bad poetry
sometimes it's just stacked lines
sometimes it's banal and trite
I break the academic rules
and write songs to be sung by fools
Maybe I don't...
"I call it bad poetry # 2"
manic rudimentary ramblings
of a man child with poetic constipation
and stuck in a quatrain rut.
This feeling is nagging

Pedestrian rhymes are not that fun.
Especially when your out in the sun.
Damn white paper blinds my eyes,
Every time, I get bit by flies
Sort of like King...
Thank you for the golden bridge
upon which to retreat.
Thank you for the sacrilege
that makes me incomplete.
Make way for peace and better days;

Who else is obsessed with slam poetry?

There's a ghost inside the mirror
staring back into your eyes.
What exactly brought you here?
It's a wonder how time flies.
Have you ever traveled back in time
to the day...
"Inside My Head Today" (prose?)
Everything strobes and there's a ringing in my ears. Someone else is looking through my eyes, and I'm thinking someone else's thoughts. There's a...
Sight, the colored canvas's in my mind;
the sun the sea the land beneath,
every thing upon which you've shined
your revealing light becomes belief.
"The Worst Poem Ever"
This is the worst poem ever;
nothing noteworthy profound or clever;
no meter, no measure, a confusing tone.
It's the worst poem ever so leave me alone.
It started with a passing thought,
and soon became a word,
and then a series of words
that led to action,
and then a series of actions,
that let to an event,
and then a...
Sometimes there's a disconnect
between the mouth and mind.
You struggle hard to recollect
the words you just can't find.
Words are easy. Words are cheap...
It has always been All or Nothing for me.. but I see that my All or Nothing wants too much more.. not too warm myself but to be burned alive and running in flames..not some pond to...

"My Seedy Heart"
a carnival of sin
a festival of pain
and a dusty fifth of gin
Watch your step
there is a cleft
of hard knock rocks
and shocks to your left...
It was a sad gray rain
that found your poem on the ground.
The wet ink flowed blue tears
born of loss, and love, and odes
to swans that mate for life.
My soul has lost it...
There is an amazing lady
who lives across the sea
whose soul is powerful and true
and filled with artistry
Her pain comes from a real place
Her pleasure simply...
Sometimes people feel
expectations of themselves
they can't live up to,
so they see others
and expect them to step up
and live up to theirs
It's no big deal...
There is strength in the ground
There is light in the sky
there is life all around
to lead you and I
in a dance of all dances
we have danced since our birth
I looked upon the shelves and sought
what overrated writers wrought
philosophers and hitchhikers
their name gives their poems clout
You who suffer for your art...
Why do you call me at three A.M.;
so drunk you can't grab your own ***
It's been years since I stopped howling at the moon over you.
It's been years since I...
Alliteration hides in the dried leaves on the forest floor.
Assonant and consonant, the sounds come forth;
the wind, or footsteps being their release.
You hold that glass with an iron grip
as you let the magic pass your lips.
You turn and bend
to the fickle wind
How time shapes your ego trips.
You take and take...
You can leave me
Take away all that I have
You can want me
Love me for who I am
Takin' me high in the air
Flyin', so scared
Afraid not to see you again
at least blurry
in a place
I wouldn't want you to find me
my ears are ringing
louder than my heart was singing
before I lost my senses...
It's wrapped in silk but bitter
that thing of which we dare not speak
with glorious bound unfettered
the strongest serve the weak
You speak with an altered...
"That Thing That Happens"
So much thought, and way too damn fast.
Frustration ebbs and flows like the tide.
It's never over, but it never lasts.
I try my best to enjoy the ride...
Today I saw him.
There but for the grace of God.
His jacket worn
He, in warm weather;
bundled up like it's freezing,
talking to himself.
I hear those voices.
Signature of time and space;
It's only the wind.
A little bit of shameless rhyme
Could be a way to bide my time
Rendition of the muse's muse
Of which I am inclined to choose
Simple words from simple...
The Topaz horse
and emerald cat,
together at the table sat;
neither being sharp nor prat,
It's fitting they should have a chat.

"My Life Story in Five Lines"
On the fringes of the counter culture I arrived;
kindly spared a life of mediocrity.
Raised and stolen from paradise,
I saw what no child's eyes...
Light shadow, cosmic wanderer,
tooth pick broken, rainbow mirror.
Barefoot bard with teaks of Chan;
given, taken, held up here.
Maddening, glazed and...

Look After Her
See the little girl standing there?
Take her into your arms and hug her
For soon, the time will come when she’ll need you
She’s going to go through Hell on...
I'm in love with a lady named misery,
and trust me,
we have some history,
she drew me in,
with a wicked grin,
soon I would be hers,
feeding her sin,
letting her cold touch under...
My girlfriend one day read a beautiful poem posted by a friend here on EP.. by Laberge.. she said to me it would be wonderful if someone dedicated such poem specially for her...
Tell Me Who You Are
Tell me who you are
As you breeze through my life like a car
Remember that I bear a scar
I've had quite a scare
Let me feel that you care
Experiences are rare...
I don't want to just love you. I want to own you
Every square inch of flesh
Every creased wet place
Your breath and heartbeat
Your scent and musk
Your eyes that seek me
The pretense of circular reasoning paints the eyes
a misty shade of dull.
Eyes that view, from the dragon perch
of a counterclockwise carousel,
She loves elephants.
She went to see them once,
She saw so much more.
