Anyway. P.Rimmer.

This should be so easy,
Why is this such a complicated equation,
My love,
Your love,
Given free,
Without frusration,
Complications,
Anyway,
Nothings ever that simple,
We seek truth , salvation,
Or even respite from being only,
Only,
Alone,
Anyway,
I'm walking down the road from your home,
From the sweet embrace,
Of your couch,
With the home knitted throw,
Kindly laid,
To warm ... See more

CHANDELIERS by Sonya Young

In your city of crystal chandeliers
Living in a mansion of self-murder
Where all of the rooms were filled
with midnight..... A kind of inky
Sapphire gloom
While you were dreaming on your
Silky sheets, all of your nightmares
Were hidden away in the China Cabinet
And only brought out on
special occasions....
Everything, including yourself
Was so beautiful....on the ... See more

ALL WINTER by Sonya Young

All winter.....
they wait for summer
Imagining the sun finally kissing their
pale shoulders
shocked when demon like teeth
rip into their tender flesh
cast iron pans held
against virgin-like skin
they squirm and scuttle
to safety, seeking shade,
respite from the relentless
beating rays
salt from the ocean
dessicates and pickles them
they are rough and briny
gritty ... See more

Suicide blonde..
No harmful intentions
My life
not worth a mention!
Trying to escape the black tar
Sticky fingers
around my throat -
searching for angels..
Licking vodka
off the bench -
Such a wench!
Sticky bitch -
singing with angels..
You were
the icing on the cake..
but I lit the candles!
Self sabotage -
Such a blast!
Imploding..
Vagina cries..

Broken Doll...

Broken Doll..
no longer perfect
Rag Doll..
with stitched on eyes
Peg Doll..
with drawn on smile
Barbie Doll,,
made by Mattel
I cut the long blonde hair
off my only Doll..
when I was a child,,
then I cut off my own
My mother cried..
She made a plait..
I was only ten
but I didn't want to be
a Doll..
I wanted to be a..
Real girl..
no longer broken
I just wanted to be ugly..
so I ... See more

Foolish Man. P.Rimmer.

I once whispered I love you,
In the sweet shell of her ear,
She whispered, hush, in return,
Such words should not be lightly said,
I love you now,
I love you forever,
Tumbled from my lips,
She kicked back the covers,
Sat up,
Looked at me and laughed,
Eyes bright, a smile she shone,
Nothing is forever,
And love the least of that,
Fool man,
Love is now,
Sweet pleasant ... See more

Is This the Only Dance. P.Rimmer.

We come together,
We gather,
Often multiply,
Something dies,
We unentwine,
Disperse,
Unravelled,
Distance grows,
Apart,
New roads,
Old roads,
Diverge, distance grows,
Is this,
The only dance?
This game,
Grows stale.

Times rainbow Arches. P.Rimmer.

Times rainbow arches eternal,
Even as no clock ticks it,
Words rattle uselessly in my head,
Lost is lost,
And seldom found,
Ships that pass,
Sand through my fingers,
Illusory,
Times rainbow arches,
Over our busy affairs,
All is ephemera,
Melts, it slips, we fade,
Till not even memory remains,
Times rainbow arches eternal,
Times arrow pierces truth,
All fades, all ... See more

A POEM A DAY
Living a poem’s much more than its words..
More fragrant than flowers, or soaring of birds

Extends far beyond all perception of time
It challenges reason, it amplifies rhyme

It pulsates across every possible zone
With conceptions that are virtually unknown

The romance, the passion, the sweet mystery
Is there in the beauty of life’s poetry

Poetic words impact on emotions ... See more
