    Home smothers and chokes me; Love drowns and provokes me. Peace severs and pounds me; Praise stalks up and cuts me. Everything changes with every lie. Live and you bawl; Have faith and you fall. Everything changes With every sob. Colors all avoid me; Songs prod and annoy me. Silence...

    I know what this must look like, Me, coming here tonight, You don’t me, I don’t know you, All I ask is a moment to, To tell you some things you should know, About my first and last true home. Right there, where that wall’s all bent, Is where my first flower bed went wrong, And do you...

    You called me Trouble. You said it was because of all the ruckus I caused when I was a puppy, but I never thought that was the truth. Despite my feeble howls when you left me in the cold, damp basement, I was a fairly shy puppy. You taught me to be shy. Whenever I ran up to lick your hand, you s...

    I saw him playing by a grave, A boy of nine years old, A youthful lad with many glad, And mischievous smiles bold. “Who are you, my youthful lad, You with known in grave, I ask thee for I too had, Family who Death did claim.” “Why, sir, I am a cottage boy, Who dreams to be a knight, ...

    Many like the noises, Of screaming words called songs, And some like the breathy whispers, Of kids trying sing along. Many like the crashing, Of waves upon the shore, And still others like the chirping, Of little birds in the morn. Some like the lightning, And the boom of thunder loud, And...

    Dear True Love, Dove, are you a dove? Do you fly above, Me every day? Say, I do say, Would you like to play, With me every day? Ant, are you an ant, Strong enough, To lift me up? Wait, please do wait, For me to make, Myself grow up....

    Something I treasure is a gay old book, Full to the brim with legends. Oh look!, There goes a knight dodging magic spell, There goes a witch! Be silent, don’t tell! There flies a dragon, and there flies a horse, There runs a man with facial hair course!, A thief with an egg races from a stal...

    Pink, Ribbons abound and twirl in the air. Blood, Roses are dripping their sweet essence. Lavender, Liquids swirls in crystalized bottles. Silver, Chimes twinkle in soft breezes. Emerald, Music trickles softly into ears. Cream, Silk from a new dress brushes skin. Golden, Laughter from f...

    Mr. Jones was a jolly old man, With a green striped cap of cloth, He worked with the time every day, And was just like a cuckoo clock. Mrs. Jones was straight and poised, While her spouse was fun all ‘round, She was tall and grim as could be, She was much more tightly wound. One day this c...

    I welcome you to Bardom, Where the poets dwell, I am the Mayor Fardom, And my kingdom’s swell. Don’t believe me, take a look, I’ll give you the grand tour, If you do not like this book, I’ll give you prizes four. The first prize is a slap, Straight across the face, The second i...

    When I wake up before the rest, I see the grey of morning, I hear the sweet, seductive jests, Of birds telling early jests. And a fiery orb of shinning gold, Lolls slowly, lazily across the sky, Shooting colors of pink so bold, And looking at us with unseen eye. Dew sparkles on the grass...

    I love things like these: Grandma’s laugh, whispering and sweet, Mother’s way of forgetting words and replacing them with “thingy,” Time, long and short and straight and bumpy, Brother’s hum and whistle going on and on, Glasses, chiming and twinkling as they’re put up, Sister’s ...

    She is as beautiful as a Strongylodon Macrobotrys, a beauty uncommon and without fault. Her eyes light up with a radiance to match a solar eclipse when she is happy and dull like the day dulls into a sorrowful and mysterious night when she is mournful. Yet still night is beautiful. I need nothing...

    I deeply despise those rotten-to-to core words, adjectives. They selfishly bring nothing but harmful false hope and tarnish the practical world of clever adults and learning students. They are awful, hateful words that cowardly hide behind the untrue implement that this crafty, despicable world can ...

    The petals are purple, like grape juice, I think, And smooth yet sticky like peanut butter, While the leaves are rough and prickly as oak bark, And greener than the ugly vase in the hall. The shape is similar to the shape of a glass cup, With a stem like the handle-thingy, (What is it called?...

    The beauty of your hand, Is unsurpassed, oh Lord, The beauty of your creation, Is close, though still so far. The tongues of all men, And all women, too, Should be singing, Your praises, oh Lord. I thank you for the sun, With orange and yellow, Slowly waltzing across, A sky-located sea. ...

    Thy world, with all thy beauteous wonder, Thy world, with all thy treasure told not, Thy world, methinks thy greatest plunder, Is in thine season with all cold, naught hot. Whence snow wilt fallest most gentle and soft, Or come thundering down through thy clouds, As if it was thine most wild h...

    Eye of the Beholder The wheels turn whilst thy stomach churns and everything doth burn, The bells cry whilst the wells dry and the ravens doth fly by. Dost thou love, without shove, thy one and only pure white dove? Wherefore sure! Wherefore else endure, this burning, painful Hell on Earth? Whi...

    Ye are the salt of the earth: . . . Ye are the light of the world" –Mathew 5: 13-14 I think this is my favorite Biblical metaphor, although there are too many to really say for sure. Ye are the salt of the earth. God was talking to all of us in this verse. Think about that. We aren’t li...

    People come in several different shapes and sizes, All have some wisdom, but what all need to realize is, Some are black and some are white and some are in between, Some are red and some are yellow and some are orange, it seems. That does not make one inferior to the rest, That does not make a ...

    It is common knowledge that the ownership of a dog by a young person promotes responsibility and a lasting friendship nine out of ten times. The person in question will have to feed it, brush it, bathe it, walk it, train it, pay for it, and love it. When I was young I wanted a dog more than anyt...

    What do you picture when you hear this: The Westing Game. Do you immediately think of the world’s greatest mystery book? I didn’t think so when I saw The Westing Game in my library, but it just goes to show that you have to think outside of the box. As soon as I read the blurb hidden, like ma...

    There is a road that stretches, Beyond the startful seas, A road paved with golden bricks, Just for His Majesty. However grand it may appear, It is shabby and weak, For it was made by humans, Both passionate and meek. Cracks are shown beneath, That gilded, golden road, Give this to His Maj...

    Once upon a time in a land faraway, Sat a king without queen, With three daughters to raise. One day this king of land faraway, Asked all of his daughters, A question, he did say. “How do you love me, my girls lovely?, For I miss your mother, And the way she loved me.” The oldest,...
