slinking through the woods
finding camaraderie only from wolves
heartless, relentless, self-absorbed
predator of the vulnerable
devouring her soul
crushing her hopes
finding satisfaction when she succumbs
the fox knows nothing of love
seeks but conquest
revels in despair of victims
takes her carcass down to the river
washes purity from her tormented soul
she saw feigned promise in his eyes
the fox, the wolf, the demon
while grinning with satisfaction
by Dane Ann Smith-Johnsen |
angst, love, peace
Pecking order glances
Destroys friendship chances
Dissolves love, annuls romances.
Surviving smart as a fox…
Smooths that road of hard knocks…
So step out of the box.
Live above mental kicks.
Care, without verbal pricks,
Strengthen homes made of sticks.
Avoid hot gossiping lips
Prevent ill judger's grips.
Watch the evil one do flips.
Find peace with the white dove.
Be sheltered by God above.
Receive His gift… non-toxic love.

Poetic form: Rhyme
by Wandering Butterfly |
happiness, husband, imagination, love, mystery, passion, romanceme, me,
Let me express my feelings
Let me tell you a true tale
So, my husband has a "gift"
One I can't quite tell
He has his sly fox ways
Of getting what he wants
For if it isn't his way
His ways are full of taunts
He begs and begs and pleads
Honey, baby, dear
I want to hold you close tonight
I want to feel you near
Sometimes I say ok
But others it's too hot
But before the night is over
I end up in his spot
How is that he could argue
with me after such a night
Over a piece of paper
That was strictly in HIS sight
I know he has bad days
Trust me, I have mine too
I guess he can make it up to me
"Somehow" we'll make it through
by Nick Puopolo |
betrayal, desire, love hurts, power, sexy,
Though I'll tell you what you want to hear
I'm not a prophet or a seer
My lies tap dance upon your soul
As your Cinderella dreams unfold
Bullshit woven to the letter
Assuring you there's no one better
Than me, to fulfill your need
Your virgin ears begin to bleed
One more drink we do the dance
Another ruse into your pants
Crafted words depth with skill
Now closing fast in for the kill
It's always just about my pleasure
Silk smooth lines cut to the measure
Crystal clear what was my aim
Reflecting on your walk of shame
by james christian |
i sit in my deckchair
lisning to the birds and bees
i love the way the tweet and get hunny for me
i love all animales from the fox to the wosp
thear is nothing than upsets me
when im out and about with all you

Your The Company I Want To Keep.
Rested in your arms,
Lost in your eyes,
The world disapears
When it's just you and I.
Your caress on my body
The way you take it in,
It's as if your an artist
Your canvas, my skin.
The trace of your finger,
Like a paint brush of means
Filling in the darkness
Where my soul used to be.
Replacing it with light,
And Color with Care
Creating a sparkle
that once was a blank stare.
by Johnny Sumler |
lost love, sorry,
That I have loved with lust
Has loved me with heart and soul
That I have made our trust a maze
Like the fox that cried wolf
I played a game to gamble truth
I've taken steps to clean my feet
Which gathered debris of solicited lies
...so on and so
The nights we try to communicate
Baffled and confused I wonder why
She still cries
by Paul Callus |
fun, math, money,
bought my love new coats to wear
found I broke the bank
is my favourite sound.
Dedicated to my host Skat A.

Contest: What Does The Fox Say?
by daver austin |
devotion, faith, peace
nearly twelve o’clock
our tabby opens one eye
distant “Oh ho ho!”
this one special night
the hen house door stands open
wily fox retreats
some little green men
from God knows where see the light
bow in silent prayer
meanest man on Earth
on his camel hears the babe
vows eternal love
he trusted the Star
when the shepherd left his flock
wolves by Star transfixed
by Grant Baker |
boyfriend, dedication, friendship, happy, me,
Someone to hold me
Somebody to share their life with me...
Cry with me, laugh with me, love me and cherish me...
I want to soul-mate to share life's journey with me...
Through the good times and bad...
So make him strong as an Ox & smart as a Fox...
That the man for me...

The fox gnaws flaking muscle
From speechless rabbit, cold
In mind and body. Men shiver
As bodies dry, spat from river.
Rings of globes circle hands
Of the thoughtless, so beaten
From paths to be told of Him,
Waiting until eyes grow dim.
Walking among us is plague,
Standing above us is but love,
These winds will claw our youth
While faith entraps this truth.
Winter comes but we survive,
Breath and bones, colonies thrive.
by Hidden Sister |
I love when fresh snow
tells its many tales,
nature on my walk.
Mark each tiny spot.
I wonder what made
The mark in the snow?
They came so close,
Walked on my porch.
A print they left me.
Was it a kitty,
A tiny squirrel,
A fox on the run?
I must examine
Each print so distinct.
We're they hungry
Cold and wet,tired
Or just having fun
Searching for some crumbs.
Was it warmer there
Under the wicker,
Couch on my front porch?
Did it keep you warm?
The trails lead to there.
Some day I will copy
The marks in the snow.
I'm determined to
See what leaves patterns
I just want to know.
by Mike Martin |
conflict, daughter, destiny, emotions, goodbye, leaving, life,
Show your love and let it go
Show your ego and confine it
For your love it shall return
For the latter not so likely
Like the falcon on my arm
The swing out in the park
Just like a sailing boomerang
Or a cradle in the dark
When the hare outruns the fox
The cubs don't get to feed
Like a fortune to a fool
Driven only by his greed
Like the clouds release the rain
Like the tree, its seed to grow
Like the bird on fallen wing
Show your love and let it go

The Urban Fox has come to town …
Back gardens now he roams.
Away from fools in scarlet coats,
He’s feeling right at home!
(Here in England, fox-hunters wear red - or "pink!" coats and chase the fox on horses, with a
pack of hounds. Hunting with hounds is now illegal, but most of the foxes have moved away
from the country into the towns. They love McDonald's ...)

adventure, confusion, depression, fantasy, fear, imagination, life, me, me,
Satan released my mind from it's cage
i sold my soul for a beautiful fox named Amy
Satan showed me some love gave me a
tricked out ride Amy was driving Satan seating
shotgun we were at the club drinking and
dancing the night away we went for a drive
Satan had a wicked smile he said trust me
let's drive like hell i felt i was flying and on top
of the world nothing could go wrong we
stopped for 6 hit the gas got it real fast
Amy got a text dropped her phone she looked down
crashed and smashed the under taker gave me
a dirt bath now i am in Hell Satan wisdom
fooled me what the hell alarm clock went
off i was awakened it was only a dream

autumn, confusion, heart, love, storm, winter,
Confusion is rIpping apart fusion to confound a muddlehead.
Inflated Ego is an overblown gas balloon.
Battle of Sexes
Battle Of Sexes ends in the hibernation of a fused fox by a diffused vixen.
In the history of love one has to walk precariously along the quick sands of hearts.

Time will wail
As love trips away
And the sky won't stay
Time will wail
On the big ocean where seasons sail
And in words written in the grail
Time will wail
By the green oak so pale
By the fish without any scale
Time will wail
And the world won't say
And experiences will decay
Time will wail
In futures veil
And in the luxurious vain
Time will wail
For those who fail
And by the innocence of jail
Life will wail
On jeopardy's rail
On Doom's trail
Life will wail
And it won't wait
When the clock is tamed on a fox tail
Life will wail.

12th grade, love, spiritual,
Your beauty is like my passion for you
Succulent as a blossom from a buttercup tree in spring
My longing heart rises to the drums of your voice
And leaps like a fox at the whisper of the breeze
My life ascends in on an astro trip
And I am taken in by the memories
That I hold next to my heart
I am in hopes of making our love sweet nectar
As my heated love melts away with spring
And I will wait for the crystal moonlight
So that we may become sultry
Eyes to eyes;
In search of the glorious and spiritual light of love

dance, love, moon,
We tango on moonbeam's glow
to the rhythm of a starry sky
a fox-trot in indigo
and off we float like butterflies
Though our feet never leave the ground
we waltz by Venus up above
The rhythm of our hearts have found
The melody of love ~
by Anthony Williams |
12th grade, cheer up, dream, fun, silly, true love, uplifting,
Imagine a pig
In a big purple wig
Imagine a car
In the shape of a star
Imagine a bear
Wearing a pink underwear
Imagine a fox
Wearing red,fluffy socks
Imagine a shoe
That always stayed new

angel, baby, love,
Saying, My name is Gabriel, I stand in the presence of 'God....
Whom seekest thou, Mary ? My Lord, while tears caressed her cheeks
His Majesty is not here, but has risen: tell the others He shall go before them
Into Babylon with Our Father's mighty Angels; and tell that fox, We cast out demons ?
There's a little black spot on the sun, today; tis the same old thing as, yesteryear
I have stood here before amid their nuclear rain; with her world turning circles at his edge
Of they've gone insane ? Martin my man, we have a dream too: Ask not what your country can do
For you rather, what you can do for your world ? This candle in the wind, never knowing whom to turn unto.
by Brittney Coon |
hope, inspirational, loss, lost loveme, love, me,
Mouth full of lies
Face frozen, unreadable
Eyes black, hot coals
Outside sweet, inside pure evil
“I love you,” you whisper
Hands all over
Until morning you own me
Bound to a tawdry bed
Out of all your lies,
“I love you” was my favorite
You were so coy
Slick like a fox
Folding me into your box
Twisting and turning
Finding my breaking point
Pushing me over the edge
Fists fly, fighting back
Sick of your head games
You’re just a well-dressed fool
You only think of yourself
Rubbing salt into my wounds
Calling me back, hands so gentle
Stop trying to get me back into your web
I’m already gone, this fly got away
by George LeBlanc |
There was a man who took a wife,
And promised to keep her all his life.
And when she died he did much despair,
But kept her still, which was only fair.
He did her nails and combed her hair,
And sat her in her favorite chair.
He was really clever that old fox,
But he could not put her in a box.
And when a neighbor came by to inquire,
He said she was watching Longmire.
So she sat and sat, and kept very well,
The fact she was dead, you could hardly tell.
And one winter's day when the man fell ill,
He sat in his chair, beside her still.
He sat and sat until he did die.
His promise to keep her had not been a lie.

allegory, animal, mother,
Mother Duck and Ducklings venture from cattail cover
wiley mother duck
which wee waddler will you sacrifice
to the prowling fox
