The Welfare Poem

The welfare poem is not for you
and not enough for anyone.
The welfare poem is very small
and not just given to everyone.

It's not enough to read for long.
It's just a little short.
It's not paid much attention to
and not the longing sort.

With thanks there's those who'll get it.
Those of who deserve it.
It's just some stolen words,
though I would soon forget it.

It's filled with much disgrace.
Those wary as they read.
It may be meant for you
if you accept the need.

I hope you have enjoyed it.
I'll cut you off for now.
But if you want more later
just beg there's more somehow.

Split In Half

In the speechlessness 
of your breathlessness,
I breathe vigorously
to arouse your former arising,
too afraid to touch 
a corpse in the making. 
Could another's spare years 
restore your time? 
Could another's breath 
bring back your air?
Could my hyperventilation, 
like our blended heart,
be split in half to share?

Teenage Girls clad in the latest fashions,
Do it whenever they meet,
Grown men aren't afraid to show some passion,
When their team's comeback is complete,
They can say hello, they can say goodbye,
And anything inbetween,
If you open your arms and crack a smile,
There is nothing that a hug cannot mean.

kill two birds with one stone

kill two birds with one stone 
why kill two birds with one stone
when one can kill them 
more efficiently with a drone
or more appropriately 
LOVE them through A poem

Why all this Destructions

Why all this Destructions? – Zamreen Zarook

God created this whole universe for the mankind,
He gave everything lavishly, thinking that we might be kind,
Even though people are able, they seems to be blind,
Whereas people failed to mind.

The sky which was created for the man started to scream and cry,
Since good morals and ethics were decry,
The fire started to do the mimicry,
As the water lands cannot bear, it came to man with a battle cry.

Land couldn't hold and it started to gorge,
Fresh air merged with chemicals and started to urge,
Whatever created for the man have started to over charged,
Stop evil and let the merits be enlarged.

In time of peace, preach me.
In time of conflict, teach...

When life is forsaken
When strife is a hearkened

A fool will never win.
No skills for boob to give

The game of the chicken
Tame to be no bigger

A mind to do, endure
A brain to have, a cure

Newfangled in its essence
A tangled quintessence
Penned on October 11, 2014!

Giving In To The Gray

Overwhelmed with fear I whispered into the rain
Disarming defenses, Giving in to the gray 
Tearing down all of my shelter within my hollowed decay
While this echoing silence gave every tear drop a name
They begin filling the voids with mundane hopes for a change
Heaven will save me from this hell and blue skies will reign
Lazily lay in green grass watching clouds drift away
It's all but a deflated dream now that the colors have changed
My thoughts have become restless noise of uncertainties rearranged
Damning all of my emotions, lies decorated with grace
Now I stand with a hardened heart in the sobering autumn rain 
I'm disarmed and defenseless, Giving in to the gray

Giving Freedom Away

Carry me quietly to the river Strip me, touch me, and love me I am alone Let the freezing water cover me Let it eat me alive As my mind drifts through the waves And my spirit sees its own grave Set me free Free me from everything Free everything from 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.

crab in the kitchen sink

i am a Dungeness crab with my claws
now strapped with rubber bands, my food
and my hiding hole taken away, leaving
me seated in someone else’s  kitchen sink

sinking with my manuscripts, pens, papers
and pencils to my death like a doomed rapist
murderer ready to walk, nay, sit on the electric
chair, soon to be flushed out as staunch stink

but even here i have not lost my control
to give, to give self as food, age old whine
my writing in heart, that poem, my protest
against being a puck in the skating rink

Harry is heartbroken,
his wonderful mother
has died. He passes her
heart shaped gold locket to
her great granddaughter. She
hugs him and places the
heirloom around her neck.

Lari Lompat Pecah

Jika hati ini bisa teriak
Pasti pecah tulang rusukku
Hancur lebur tubuhku
Berlari ia pantas rentasi pantai
Melompat ia setinggi langit 
Renggangkan seluas-luasnya
Habiskan sebebas-bebasnya
Teriak sehingga serak
Meter decibel pun pasti rusak
Pecah berantakan gelas kaca
Hentakkan kaki sekeras-kerasnya
Pecah semuanya

Ms Margerine

Of what you know to be beautiful
never becomes a real thought,

of how you seek it out-
the lessoning of everything combined,

sanctimony as tree's can do when they listen to one another,

serious mistaken identities are just like the reason you came here was to die completely.

	Cold perspiration
Flows off the petals of the lotus,
	It falls on the 
Delicate branches of her,
	Washing away the
Tears in a all so cleansing tone,
	Clearing away the 
Sins we have caused in its wake,
	Bending and tearing
Throughout the lotus’ intricate trail,
	Destroying this
Natural seemingless beauty,
	When will the rains
Learn from its consequences,
	To leave natural
Beauty alone and learn to change.

from the heart to the soul
from sensitivity it all began 
knowlegde changed proves it reason

when reality speaks 
what the time says 

circumstances and events 
showing the real and emotional picture of truth
here a man thinks

upon this time comes 
a decision called

The Mayor of Heaven

The Binger streets are empty, The Mayor’s mansion sits alone. When God remembered Thy son, He summoned Big H home. His giving heart stopped beating, Within an April day. His memories continue on, For what he’d say. For the spirit of his giving, Was the community’s best ally. Then God requested his council, For the meetings in the sky. The golden life he lived, Was eulogized by the reverend. God promoted his giving soul, To be the Mayor of Heaven. ______________________________ In memory of Howard 'Big H' Taylor for his giving heart and warm friendship to the community of Binger Ok.

All that she wanted

Feeling alone in this world
Her head dropped into her hands
The tears began to fall
Feeling hopeless, she didn't understand

So much love in her heart
She wanted to share
Nobody's calling 
Nobody's visiting
Nobody cares

Just once in her life
She wanted just one person to reach out
Offer an invitation
Let her know they were proud

She didn't wish to be famous
Her soul much to shy
She didn't want riches
At least not the kind that money buys

Just one simple I love you
I want you to know I am here
You're a really great person
Words of compassion, words that mend a soul

Guilt yes it can eat away  your self esteem
It eats away at the strength that you found
Vying to destroy the hope that you gained
Inside you and around you is loving hope
Never think it wrong to ask for help it there
Giving up it is the easiest thing you can do

Until that moment life can lose perspective 
Please ask for help hope it is easier to find

Sometimes, life is hard
Sometimes, you need to cry
And yet, you can’t move on
Because you haven’t any tears
Sometimes, you need to talk
Or maybe, take a walk
But sometimes, life is harder
Because no one understands

Be the one to listen
Be the one to hear
Be the one that understands
Be the one to care
Just to sit in silence
Or maybe, hold my hand
Let me know I’m not alone
Distraction…. From the fears

Oh, to hear you in a whisper
That “it will be okay”
If my head lay on your shoulder
The tears would fall away

To feel your arms around me
In the safety of your love
All I need is honesty
In the strength….
Of a hug

My Inner-Peace

Welcome to my life of calamity
The pills give me 
my one sense
of sanity
I’ve found Life’s
just too hard of a game
I’m sick of the pain
Living alone
unloved and always afraid
I’m caving in
collapsing on myself
I feel nothing
inside my chest
Just an icy wound
an empty hole
I’m incomplete
I’ve never been whole
Death is just the dream
that I find myself living
But the pills are giving me
what I want
The pills feel like
they’re what I need
The pills are giving me
a single shred of innner-peace

Giving All

I would give it all away
  the collector's display of valuables untouched
if only you would stay.

The shadows take hold
  and as your eyes close
I know you have to go.

If I prayed and pleaded
 would God change his mind
leaving you just as I want and needed.

Life is such an unknown struggle
 where we tread in wonder and caution
to let love come and go untroubled.

I would give it all away
 don't say goodbye,
just one more day, stay.

Apathy of Time

Blank face with scythe
drips sand like frozen blood
cut from my veins a tithe
for my trouble, slammed door
a choir of entreaty, all poor
like the life sap cut, a dud.

How many you demand blythe
shrugs, with a heart's thud thud
demanding youth, live lithe,
when demanded I gave galore
listing softly now, my life outpours
but your face, blank, still, no good.

Giving In

The cusp of even tide is in my veins,
It tangles with the seaweed in this heart
By drowning in these lungs to echo pains;
Giving up would drop me from the start.

I shouldn't but increasingly I will;
Determine what shall balance it the most
For every vane of doubt, I can instill
A strength to stop the rage of roller coast.

Where the waves of undulation steeps defy
Then giving up prepares us what to do
Build that dam and say, "I will not die",
Live another day and see it through.

Life was formed to thrill the go betweens'
Those death defying acts, unlike the theft
Of what I use to have, but now that means
I'm putting back what courage I have left.

Giving In

what a repulsive sight.

a loved one giving into the whims of every beck and call. 

give him a break.

its so well deserved.

the shouts, anger, and frustration 

just won't seem to stop. 

i plead for justice. 

let it be heard.

nothing seems fair.

but the shouts are echoing in my mind.

long after the storm stoped.

i still see the lightning flash as it moves away.

things seem so much more clear at a distance.

i tell him why the picture is wrong.

but he still shows no resistance.
