    The legs line up all 8 of the arachnid Marching up to the abdomen Dreary hairs with no movement Stuck all in one in the doldrums As the spider she weavers her web all along the concrete walls To create a barrier between her and the blood of her next meal She weaves a wall of fine oily sil...

    I find myself floating in an ocean of hatters’ hats Mad as ants and rosier than roses themselves, all of them All made of satin sheets and redwood weaves Glossy yet affirming that the world is indeed turning In the front, out the back, scratch my hat, turn to ash Now and then I find myself i...

    Do unto others as you wish them to do to you Words said true Think it through; Now what do they mean to you? As surely as the sky is blue I practice this great virtue Yet conforming was the hue So with this I flew Away from the fear and I renew Thoughts to be long overdue With ru...

    A mirror unto thee A reversal of fortune So that you can see Blatant yet so clearly Crystal clear Shatter the mirror Yet you're getting farther, not near It's petty that you're even here The lesson only relative To the listening ear Efficacious the mirror Yet voracious C...

    Behead the poets Whose words grew so sharp That they overpowered the peaceful strumming of a harp Whose words grew dangerous to the elite But pleased the ears of the meek. Art is dead Break the wrists of the artist Whose paintings outlined corruption In beauty or in bloodshed Yet these im...

    Set a twinkle in thine eye Let it fade only within time Rekindle a lost spirit With aid of a serenade, sublime Do you feel it? The infatuated vine Spiraling around your spine Blooming then only to design destruction and decline The malign Aligning your spirit to be spiteful and unkind ...

    It was a mist haven morning The fog thick as could be But what my sight allowed Surely surprised me It was a road trot on by few Especially for my profession But still was important for the news As I was an investigative journalist with the blues My feet took a step at a time All throug...

    Such lovely snippets of words Scattered about as a jigsaw puzzle The puzzle table lies in mess Waiting to be assembled together First I start on the outside Fitting edges to the ledges Then I look for repetitive colors Suiting the pastel of patterns As I get deeper The puzzle gets simpl...

    The suit The cuffs The slacks The tie Oversimplified Blandly stated Gray faced All color faded Systematic Industrialized All these corrupted lies Have never dissipated in time What goes down in history For a time of greed and evil seeds Sure is a mystery To a generation yet unse...

    Hark ye’ poets Hark ye’ bards Whose love is confused Confused with logic Love whose logic is as wise as the sapling Logic whose love is as wise as the grand sycamore The crowd demands more! When love is in score The brilliant oration Befuddled with emotional orientation Troubled with...

    Why is it that the good die young and oft forgotten Yet the wicked go on to live in infamy forever A million screams the wicked brings A million star lit dreams the good had sewn All into the minds of the youth Truth or lies; for either side is horded Ruthless death by the sword Glorified b...

    Play that beautiful piano music I so seldom remember The speed of life has left me so distraught in my treasures I wish to slow down, breathe in, and enjoy life’s simple pleasures I hope to be part of no drastic measures So I sit back, take a breath and allow my words to flow Not to blow in...

    A freak, a freak My pal, my owl Carry this letter to thou With such speedy haste So there is no time misplaced A waste, a life A taste, a knife Cut into all that’s brittle Sure makes us feel a little Sad songs abroad Gives me the assurance of a nod What I perceived right Was marked...

    It is, with few exceptions, the common act of mankind to find and act in a way such as to benefit oneself. Sometimes this may be done with only one party benefiting, causing an array of emotions to those who realize that they've been taken advantage of. On the next level, it is mostly desirable...

    Just because it seems in my state that people form their opinions based on what they're told and not their logic, and because I'm not artistically inspired right now, I thought what I'd do is make a little report on marijuana. This isn't because I'm a stoner at all, but beca...

    What's right? What's wrong? Understanding perspective is key to understanding tolerance. Everyone on this planet comes from different backgrounds and experiences. Thus, would different ideas and ideals not form? The greatest mistake, in my opinion, for one person to close their minds and h...

    Is our nation, the USA, really in as much trouble to be afraid of what our president wants to say to students across the nation in a speech about education? Is this wide spread fear or so called logic? Either way our country has become so polarized that literally nothing has been getting done. Liber...

    A virtue to be A virtue to cease Least the more challenging to be upkeep For virtue without practice is an act And not that which is an art An ancient principle that is what it is As it is seemingly unpracticable in the modern And as it is, it truly seems Greek to me. For to be as cold wit...

    An art is the best medicine For it imparts the heart on a journey Through mediums known all to well And my medium I know best, comes from the deepest well A poets song comes from the heart Sparked by the soul Inspired by the hole to be filled And so to be healed For to relate words to pa...

    Whether it be relevant to you or not, (it should be) it seems that the more people that you brighten their days up, the more people will brighten your own day up. It's almost like a quantity exponent, you brighten up 5 peoples days, they get put in a better mood and thus brighten up lets say 5 mo...

    Years after I witnessed the life I testify after the death of the wicked and In great strife write An experience of which Even though bitter in it’s sweet Still resembles an obelisk That of which have four sides Of the individual, family, bystander, and divine And one point that remains tr...
