Hell Hath No Donuts

If the staff of life

           Is bread, then

Is death gluten-free?

Broken,beaten,blind and lost
All but a spark of hope left to keep warm
But dig and claw on bruised muscles, on broken limbs
Until the light day fills your sight
Left blinded no more
Until the soft fresh air blows the spark to a flame and ignites your will
Until the ground beneath is solid enough to stand
Walk,until the pain is mastered and stumbling ceases.
And you can say:
This will not be my grave.

White Glove

Your Majesty

Waving a white glove
Watching red barge on the River
Easing the Thames
Skipper's dream for ever
As You are up to the top
In Pageant Canaletto scene
Bridging London and Venice
People's Joy and Hope for the future
Ringing the 8 bells on the Belfrey
Announcing worldly water Storms
That will open the doors still ajar
From St.Paul's Cathedral to Big Ben
No mercy nor sympathy for the evil
Greeting the iconic landmarks
From the London-Paris Eye
Like a Mermaid One
among the Trinity Five Hundreds
on behalf of all
Outside the Towers of London
Saluted and respected

Drops of rain to wash some away
Along the banks of our rivers
in steady progress

Some never 
experience it,
that time 
of a perfect fit

Before everything 
that gets 
in the way gets 
in the way.

It was really 
nothing much: just 
words, and 
remembered touch,

in real time,
in memory

If its money I got its money ill keep. If its money I have its money ill weep. If its love that I give its love ill receive. For I am but no one who just see's beneath. Some say your only as strong as you feel, but how could we a place that's so unreal. People are hearing but..not really hearing. Why is the world so blind. I keep on screaming and screaming and screaming for things to be revolutionized. I am just a small song in a world full of cries, laughter, tears and french-fries.

Oh, I see roses in your eyes
we're put here only to face demise
this unknown road we walk is torn
yet of this world, we are born
some rich, some poor
some always seem adored
some black, some white
who's better? a non-sense fight
money is nothing, a temporal illusion
it only wreaks havoc and causes confusion
race is a color and I am colorblind
sexuality is sexuality why should others mind?
as for religion, it causes many pain
however, it's the only reason man's still sain
would you say born rich is an advantage
it's of no importance, either way
each and every, is put to the test 
will you be remembered? or forgotten like the rest?

Tickle Your Fancy

Why are we ticklish?

Nerves, basically.

Nerves in your

nerves in your feet.

Sensory attenuation

tells your brain

actions require

attention from it.

This measure is

to give your brain

-and it's also the

you can't tickle

A tickle won't hurt.
It's nothing like
It's not quite a
It's not quite the

So why do we feel
Isn't it weird?
There must be a
that tickling is

Maybe because
you can't do it
and since it's not
that danger is

it could be a
advice we should
making contact with
there's nothing like

Coffee Break - Seize The Day

            Coffee Break  (Seize the day)

In every tick of every clock
There is a trick that follows with a tock
Tick- tock, tick- tock, swing on lost pendulums
To stop, to seize the day, remember to 
Live every day to follow death
Die every day to follow life
If you cry each day
If you laugh each day
You have lived a life worth living
Seize the day if just to drink your coffee
As life is sometimes hard to swallow in the coffin

It's blisteringly faithfully rot,

it's intangible as it's deserving of all,

so many signs,
and signatures to boot...

The wreathe in the sky,

the tree rotation eye,

end of all eagerness,

dredge of the forced peaceful bliss..

The honorary code time'd and then aged like the rot,

and an evening star,
and a really far far...

The Blackbird

The Blackbird
Looms over my grave
At my funeral
Nobody came
Not a soken word
For this slave
Neither a hero
Or unbrave
A life with nothing to show
His last words wen't unheard
The only one he really did know
Was the Blackbird
That looms over his grave..

As the sun rises in the sky My heart is crushing once again , On the cold, black, wet earth Where once upon a time we both Were staying. I pass the old tree and see your carving, And my hands start shaking My legs can’t hold me anymore , Come back from Heaven , come back For me. I want us to be like before, To lie on the earth and stare at the stars To kiss me at night and hold me Tight to your chest and never Never let me go. I can’t give up on you so easy Your face ,is what I see all day I want no sun, nor light, nor life I just want you near me Day and night.

Where have you gone?
I feel so lonely without you here
I'm craving for your touch
I'm dying for your embrace
Where are you now?
'cause I can't take it much longer
I feel like I start falling again
But there's no one here to catch me
'Cause you left without even saying goodbye
And left me to break into pieces
I put my hands together
Sit down on my knees
And pray to the skies
to bring you back to me...

Ugly is Ugly

Ugly is such an ugly term.
for ugly, is an far as i'm concerned.
And it can be quite troubling, 
when one thinks one is ugly.
But one must remember that such beauty is skin deep,
and the prettiest human being wouldn't interest chimpanzees.

Another Life

Another soldier dies
 killed in some distant war
that hovers forever on our doorstep.

An unnamed life lost
 to the masses and news back at home
save the ones who knew and loved him.

They serve willingly
 fighting in a  hostile land
to bring freedom and hope that others run from.

The generals make the call
 in the background of the sands and smoke
where life remains untouched.

When do we learn
 that life and men and women
are of more value than land and oil, diamonds and gold?

The final touch


                 Upon the foggy hills I sat
              With a hat on my bloody lap
             Contemplation is my thoughts
            Whilst humming in my lips
            Aviators all around
           Dropping shells to the ground
           With a big booming sound
            People screaming through the air
             Run for your lives they declare
           This is the way it was 
            Back in the year of 1921.

              The evil that is war
               Zaian war.

On life and Death

Before you get too close…

Listen to the sound of the clock

Every part of me is alive

You need… 

Before you get too close…

Go ahead and scream

Scratch at the surface 

Go ahead and bleed 

Find your souls true purpose

Realize that nothing is…

But suddenly can be

Before you get too close…

Take a long look

Stare at the world about you 

Take a deep breathe

Catch a falling leaf

Before you get to close 


Tell me what it felt like…

Tell me what to need is like

Categories: hate,


I've killed a man 
It's sad but true
For what he's done 
Could have happened to you
I've killed him not 
With gun nor knife
But with my thoughts
He has no life
I hate him now 
And forever more
Because his love
Shouldn't be a chore

It's been a year since you were gone.
Pain and regrets are still undone.
Up there with HIM,
I know you are at peace.
Somewhat I am happy
And I should be.
Because finally you are free,
Free from earthly weight and pain.

I missed you dearly
And I know God sees me
At night when I weep
And wipe my tears secretly.

I should have went home sooner,
So I could of take care of you longer,
But I was too late...
Too late to even recognize
your favorite grandaughter.

Like the roar of thunder
Mighty, powerful but it echoes
Like the intense tingle in your nose
Just before a sneeze
Like a blurred, frosted window
Prohibits sight
Like the taste of water from a kitchen tap
Tastes like nothing
Like the smell of morning 
When you have s sinusitis flu

None of my senses can distinguish

To help my brain to comprehend
So that my my heart can understand this nothingness

Overwhelming, deafening, incomprehensable

Stop Sign

Waiting for the traffic to move,
Longest day in the world for me,
Slow motion in progress it just won’t groove,
I’m growing no faster then a tree,
Impatient the moment arises,
Looked both ways and the season subsided,
The occasional mishap just occurred,
Crash in an instant now I’m disturbed,
In this second I look in the past,
I see myself and I didn’t last.

Death For The Sake Of Death To All Is Our Friend

Twice around the world when once sufficed,
And but not for desire to die in fire.
For simple mind's death runs the race, the race
That seeks them out.
Volcanoes that spew snow across the land,
The barren land where's not a rose.
Where the pain of two is fused into the heart
Of one, where pleasures feel like pain.
When dying once for none cannot suffice,
But twice as great.

Through the Door

Each moment that passes
Is another small step towards death.

- But what of that?

This journey goes but one way
And at its end, a door
A door we all pass through,
And a dark within, that none may see.

All doorways are Adventures;
Cross the threshold -
Find what waits within!

A boudoir, a tavern,
A field of flowers?
Tambourines and dancing, laughter
Or, perhaps, just darkness.

- If so, then a place to rest, among your friends!

The joy of all journeying lies all in the traveling;
All their ends are new Beginnings.

Pleasant Hearts

Father dont relieve me 
give me a dawning day to
kiss the bliss upon a new life
as long as i take them with
me into what could be 6 plus deep
just fall into what could be heaven
for me it is called hell
as if i were to sieze the day
