THE MAD SECRETARY
Hunched over the computer, I am mystical,
With mental white gloves and a karate belt -
A daylight cursor, but on my bicycle,
A word and energy transformer, a flickering Celt.
Such metaphysics I can make into sensation,
Turned into binary formulae by the boss,
My passion is for punctuation-
But the lingua franca doesn’t give a toss.
I see the point. I accommodate the pause.
I rinse the cups and make the coffee sweet,
I am saving myself for this man of laws,
Of Brehon provenance, who will entreat
Me to be his love, his partner and co-genitor,
Of a life graph, where he can trust the monitor.

absence, addiction, career, creation, dark, depression, emotions, freedom, identity, loneliness, soldier,
With love comes consequence
With hope comes failure
With triumph comes fear
With peace comes worry
With riches comes pain
With poverty comes envy

betrayal, career, dark, evil, satire, true love,
Donald's faithful to his red star
Putin loves the Don from afar
Bizarre it may seem
It's been Vladimir's dream
To have an American Tsar
by Eric Ashford |
He chose a face
that only his mad mother
He painted a tragedy
upon a crooked grin.
His mask was designed
to mug any real mirth.
a honking mockery.
A blundering funster
a badgering prod,
that made it caper, and ha-de-ha
inside distorting mirrors.
When audiences thinned,
he became the dark intermission,
a curtain drawn
over a cloaked smirk.
Now we see him
swaying on street corners,
much crazier now
then his sorrowing mom.

Graduating college where do I stand
I know God has a big plan
A plan for me
I'll just wait and see
Where my life takes me
And opportunities that arise
My future is definitely a big surprise
I have this feeling inside
That God will guide
He'll guide me through my life that is
Hopefully one day I'll be in show biz
I love to write and read and learn
To be successful is something I yearn
To make a difference in the world
No longer am I a little girl

Too afraid to make a mistake.

Stuck in a route that leaves no breaks.
What is Your plan for me Father?
At once I thought I knew.
Now I'm disillusioned;
Please bring me back to You.

Reflections of imperfections
have shown me a way
that I can move mountains
through my power of faith
even though I can't see him
I know he is real
through the power of prayer
and a Love that I feel
It's growing inside me
like a flower in bloom
shall I reveal my powers
or is it too soon
I am reading the signs
through my darkness I find
a reason for belief in
the light of mankind
that I know shall overcome
the greatest of odds
the Love I seek amazes me
especially through the flaws
because now I am inspired
through the hero's that bring
my throne through the darkness
on which I return on as your King.

on work and working, work
I used to be in the Royal Navy
Until I realised it was not for me
So I headed back up north
To the country where I love to be
I joined an automotive parts company
Moving to trucks and trailers alone
Then suddenly we were made redundant
At a young age into the unknown
But seek and ye shall find
It was in January 1981
When I joined a local tools company
Unemployment I had on the run
I have been with my present company
Golly! it's now over eighteen years
From Engineering to Aquaculture
An enjoyable move in my working career

I want to hold it
I want to kiss it
My souvenir of love
I want to press my face on it
To bring me luck
To bring me joy
To bring me love
My silver plate of love
Like a medal and
Like a Grammy statue
Sweet as success
Bright as gold
My silver plate
It’s better than sex
It’s better than wine
It as good as love
To cherish my life as
A dream comes true
Everything on my silver plate

age, angel, arabic, care, career, caregiving, character,
the forest where birds are singing
the river where fishes are swimming
the sea where every creatures are living
in the air where birds are flying
every living and that of non-living
all are created by Him
including the freedom of people
the freedom to independence
and own governance and country
let not the men dictate Allah
surely they never know
what Allah knows
on the third day
i love you Allah

appreciation, art, beautiful, birth, career, class, community,
No engineer without them
Without them who is footballer
Pilots are born of them
And the youth are from them.
There are no 'his and her' if it was not them
Each employee is born from them
And the our leaders too
Take it to the peak of success.
Who are mother if not them
No father became leaders
He also educated children from them
Without them no one goes everywhere.
O they are nations’ educators
Authors are not born if not them
Thanks should be extended to them
As education is the right direction.
Happy Teachers Day 2015
I love you teacher. Let's sail together. Layag Sug!

betrayal, brother, career, depression, dream, education, family,
With the love of my brother I was bonded,
And of such, I was blinded,
I failed to see his quality in others,
And I compare other love with his
His love was with trust and understanding,
His love was with care and kindness,
His love was with equal and sweetness,
His love was with courage and mindful
Not because he was my brother,
But because he was a man of sober,
And always in less violent and more verbal
He is Precious.
And so I find it difficult to have such where he is not there,
And with this, thus, I have none love left for others
by Frances King |
lost love, loveme, me,
You told me you had a career and a wife,
And no space at all for me in your life;
You made me no promises, so I
Settled for loving another guy …
Then you returned, so nearly free.
But I had my children – silly me!
So you settled down with one of your others,
And I was content as a wife and a mother …
But it did not last long – does anything do?
I could not feel for him what I still feel for you.
So, then I was free, but true to form,
You’d married her - a port in a storm …
So now we have settled, each for a half-life:
Me with my kids, and you with your new wife.

“What does it mean to be whole?” I wonder
There is an internal striving to be complete, to be whole and in balance.
Like a puzzle, each piece of you connecting with one another to form a whole picture.
Your career, your family, your health, your spirituality and your love life.
All striving to be in balance.
Making you complete.
“Why?” I wonder
This striving to be whole for there is always a piece missing and a motivation to find it.

business, career, confidence, cool, education, jobs, success,
Here's my public resume
For all the world to see
But first, I'll introduce myself,
My name is Ashley
I'm an art school dropout,
I don't have a degree;
But I'm a diligent hard-worker
Try not to judge me
I attended Columbia College,
As well as SAIC;
Oh yeah, plus St. Xavier
And Roosevelt University
I transferred schools a bit
Excuse my curiosity,
I pray my indecision
Won't impact my credibility
I was once a journalism major
I can write about anything
My other interests include fashion,
I can also dance and sing
Feel free to get in contact
For business inquiries
I hope this impressed you,
I would love if you hired me ;)

For Gods' sake
The Lord shall pass
Right through you///
And cause your Spirit
Endow you path with
Knowledge and righteousness
And gently reap thy Soul
Through and through

His love carry you
your friend in the pen

beautiful, betrayal, black love, blue, career, cousin, emotions,
A demure damsel, her prussian blue eyes.
I astray all blurred, in subtle catalyze.
High cheek bones, beneath her caramel hair.
My purple veins pulse, in red wanton flare.
The pretty Belladonna smiles in cold blood,
Venom frolic my veins, they wilt in lava flood.
Extravagance of heaven, in blink of an hour,
I see lavender and lilac, in the toxic purple flower.
(Belladona in Italian means "beautiful lady",
it is also a harmless looking poisonous plant with
purple flowers,.known as the deadly nightshade)
