The hideous and the humble
Blood peppers falling snow
As world hurtles to the tipping point
Life chokes on ignited air
Wrenching love from hungry mouths
Stars fall without sound
Some weep helpless, day through night
Ever wondering how
Never knowing why ...
by Tim Ryerson |
funny, insect, nature,
Subtitled: WELL! You didn't have to bite my HEAD off...
Gladly would I die
for your love, my dear. No! Wait!
Just kidding! Just kid...

crazy, devotion, murder, passion, woman, women,
Love went to the liquor store
She bought a bottle
Drank until the bottle was dry
Walked on over to the hardware store
Where there she bought a hunting knife
Love sliced open my chest
Her hands grasped my heart
She had a hearty meal
Dropping her knife
She walked away in the dark
Love stole my heart

holocaust, hope, humanity,
Just read a tale of
a horrendous murder in California
Makes one lose faith in humanity
My uncle saw the
death camps in
Europe during World War ll
Also shakes one's faith in humanity
Yet, I believe
that out out of the
a phoenix will appear
and fly upward
and as it soars
it will sprinkle
on those on the
and leave kindness
in its wake

allegory, war, war,
The first time I beheld your being, I felt that creation helded, its breath.
Without peace of mind you are in a constant state of war within.
With your tongue, you murder your brothers, sisters,, complete strangers,
And then the innocent, as you allow the guilty to go free.
You go to war with your own heart! Yet we pursue love, or and lust,
with a tenacity and then we declare a cease-fire, that has only one truth.
It blinds us to such a depth, that the cease-fire fails.

dark, death, desire, horror, murder, poetry, poets,
They once met upon a poetry site,
shared romantic words by computer light.
His poems of rose pedals and floating doves,
her verses of broken hearts and jilted love.
Those touching comments soon lit a fire,
innocent flirting now burning desire.
Their public secrets fanned the embers
and played out before all the members.
Alas unable to contain their lust,
to finally embrace became a must.
Soon they soupmailed their secret plot,
to meet in the nearest Wal-Mart lot.
What happened next no one can fix,
for her light was turned off at Motel Six.
It seems her tall dark poetic stranger,
turned out to be the "Trailer Park Strangler".
by J. Summers |
Out there on the edge of town
Lies a crumbling railroad track.
I set my feet to running,
Too late for turning back.
I left my love behind me
in an irrigation ditch,
I caught her with another man
So I up and shot the witch.
Now the hounds are chasing me,
My race is nearly run,
With nowhere left for me to go
I slowly pull my gun.
The barrel is cold against my head,
Eternity is near.
There’s just the sound of thunder
Exploding in my ear.
by Gregory Richard Barden |
analogy, body, kiss, passion, sensual, sexy,
pain like endless dangerfield one-liners
rocks me breathless
tears - unchristened acid on my cheek
lips as sweet as scorpions
my, how sublime that juicy fruit they hide
a sexy serpent dancing
pierced and plump
'tween your butter-chub cheeks
wrapped ‘round me like love
violet eyes looking up
murder me, mercilessly
your taste of me
i die for.

angst, life, social, world,
"The world is your oyster,"
Some wise man once said.
This wise man was nuts,
What was wrong with his head?
The world's a cold place,
Which is easy to see;
From our cool, mirky waters;
To our beautiful, dead trees.
They used to talk about soulmates,
When love equaled life;
Now they murder the husband,
Who cheats on his wife.
"Every man for himself,"
That's our new motto now;
And try finding a man,
That could pray or teach how.
"The world is your oyster,"
Some wise man once said;
I wonder if our wise friend,
Ever got out of bed.

The innocence is transfusing
the goat skin drums
children of the mills,
children of the junkyard,
and we keep filling them with
mercury, nitrate, espestice, baby bombs
blasted out of their shaved heads

beautiful, beauty, murder, mystery, sea, soulmate,
She gazed into my haunted eyes
Knowing my devotion was absolute and complete
She fulfilled my nefarious dreams
Ever so peaceful in her green eyed slumber
She struggled with the rope and tape
I whispered in her ear
Relax, your destiny is clear
You shall sail to the sweetest of places
I shall allow you your escape
Slowly, smothered with my pillowed love
She lies lifeless
With my poems upon her chest
She has found paradise at last
As the light fades from the far away sea
Old roads become watery graves
North she sails with my words upon her very soul

I live where angels fear to walk
Don’t ask questions, no one’s gonna talk
Another kid’s innocence is being take
Their thirst for blood will never slacken
Love is something only found in a fairytale
But those don’t comfort, when home is spelled H E L L
Left alone for days on end
Nothing else to do but play pretend
Trying to get lost in a dream
But when that doesn’t help, all you can do is scream
I’ve called the devil by his first name
His eyes are cold, mine are the same
I live where angels fear to tread
By the time you find me, I’ll probably be dead

The Lady in red

The Lady in red
lays and waits
The Lady in red
never-more so beautiful
The Lady in red
Who is my newly wed
The Lady whose white dress covered in Red
is no more

earth, emotions, life, sad,
Hopes of escape from complicated betrayal
My strength fades as dusk
The pain after the earthquake,
the blood congealed in the veins
Forbid injustice, rape and murder
My sorrowful song and tears,
ceases when the tide flows over the ocean
The love must be redeemed from the birth cradle
Have mercy on us almighty God above
A deep unspoken prayer ~ in the end we will fall

Where does it all end?
It ends Where Love begins.

daughter, faith, family, health, life, loss, love, people, political, religion, sister, social, teen, wife,
It's against the law to kill someone,
who hurts you in some way.
But murder is always justified,
by mothers everyday.
When you think about abortion,
do you see the child inside?
The babies life you want to stop,
has no where else to hide.
You tell yourself many things,
like it doesn't have a soul.
Think of the future your about to destroy,
by using birth control.
There are many ways to save it's life,
for the mothers who do not care.
And adoption is the answer,
for a couple in despair.

On Valentine's Day,
Cupid's arrow drips with blood.
What a macabre love
by Tokollo Kalake |
birth, boy, emotions,
Let us face reality,
gays are people like us.
Why do we kill them,
why do we torture them,
why do we murder them.
Do you like to see
the flow of the blood;
of your brothers and sisters.
They are humans like us,
they have rights like us,
they should live like us.
Because we are one,
we only different inside.
I know it's hard to understand,
but we have to face reality!
Let us not kill and torture them,
but let us live with them and love them.

absence, animal, death, dog, murder, people, pets,
Fangs, bloody and red
Tires, barren of tread
Fire, rising above
Heart, devoid of love
Skies, cloudy and grey
Price, too high to pay
Time, now has run out
Mind, filled now with doubt
Eyes, blinded by drinking
Brain, no longer thinking
Blood, staining the ground
Noise, then not a sound
Life, taken too soon
Warmth, gone now in June
Dead, left on the road
Man, a life taken now owed
by Richard Palmer |
forgiveness, hope, religion,
Eyes without vision,
Minds without thoughts,
Bodies moving like zombies,
Living,but playing no part,
Following bad company,
Wasting precious time,
Another great young life,
Charged for murder,numerous crimes,
Living a cruel,bloody life,
Leaving many in sorrow,
Flash-back,things you have done,
Makes you afraid of the shadows,
Possessive in love,
Consumed by greed,
Controlled by anger,
The ALMIGHTY,is what you need...

spiritual, , cute,
I’ve been here since the beginning
in some form or another.
I’ve showered the earth with molten lava
and quenched it with wind and sea.
I grazed with dinosaurs
and was eaten by their kind;
Yet I outlived their demise.
I emerged from the sea as Man
executed the first murder
the young earth had ever seen.
His universal love and hate
defined by incongruous beliefs.
I am Truth, which is the distinction:
endless beyond His own extinction.

'JACK the DAW' (In Lancashire Dialect)
Struttin’ and Puffin’ his big chest out,
The streets all clear, when he’s about.
Inside all’doors, waitin’ for’ thump
Families quake and animals jump!
Mam goes to’ door, money in hand
Shakin’ as she stares at his black neck band,
She dares’nt look in his blue black eyes
They say there’s murder an’ spent-up lies.
We just hear his voice, raucous and loud
“Your rent, your rent!” he shouts out proud
An’ all the street kids play
An’ all the street kids say,
Jack the Daw walks down the street
Jack the Daw with his great big feet
Jack the Daw, if he looks your way
Run away, run away, run away, run away!
by Arthur Vaso |
angst, love, passion, storm,
I was kissed
I wept long before
I never let go
You have become my dream
You've broken into my heart
So now I weep yet again
You wont, mercy be, let me go
I held your hand in a dream
I caressed the blood of your heart
To give you life
I weep once more
My lungs are filled with water
I am drowning in desire
I weep at this very moment
My passion shall murder me
Pastel tears, painted tomorrow
Monet warned me of Parisian blues
All that I can grasp in the palm of my hand
Why am I denied the touch of love?
In the haze of such thoughts
I beg of you
Let it rain day and night
So that I may drown in your arms
