  • Where's the Evidence?

    I have several role models. Like Remobythin, who peacefully rebeled against the Wendoflabin Dynasty when they attempted to outlaw supermarkets. Oh, and then there’s Sabyinan, who didn’t eat for 500 years in protest to the cruel treatment of...

  • Do You Hear the People Sing?

    Do you hear the people sing? Say, do you hear the distant drums? The dawn broke over the barren landscape, and life began to rise from the lost nights of previous. It is the future that they bring when tomorrow comes! Figures began their lives, whether...

  • War Amongst Impossibles (poetry Challange)

    Weaponhadrays cuckooed firedetonrees amongst Liver Bush, and the screams of Liverinians made the entire world go hush. Blood formed clouds weeping for all life in life. The sounds, the hush, the firedetonrees, A chaos of things, brought on by knife an...

  • We Are Lost

    A man sat alone, hunched over the counter of a bar in England. As he sipped at his beer, he plunged into thought. He thought of the pressure that had been put on him all his life. Pressure from his parents, his teachers, his bosses. They were expectati...

  • A Complete Peace

    It was sunny; not the type of day that you would expect something to happen. What’s the line again? “The sun was shining happily, shining with all his might”. The tree branches kissed the pond gracefully as we peeled off our socks an...

  • Equilibrium

    Under again, she let out the oxygen through her mouth. Her body began to sink down. She felt the cold mud. She dug her hands into the bottom of the lake. Nothing was there. A pain developed in her chest as she kicked herself up from the bottom and gasp...

  • The Schlub and The Descent

    Some people look at the depravity and atrocities of war and say, indignantly and piously, this is why we should not have war. Yeah, right. As if you could wave a wand and say there is no more war. Wherever there is want, fear, envy, lust, and all those...

  • A Piece of Peace

    Warm breezes softly push me along the invisible path I am traveling. I look side to side and see billowing clouds floating carelessly with no direction. It is a blissfully peaceful space. The noiseless atmosphere goes on for eternity. Then it starts to...

  • Paradise on Earth

    Inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale Thats what I keep telling myself. It just rained, and the smell of the wet ground is so soothing. I look around the forest I’m in and I exhale deeply. I.Am.At.Peace. I feel at home here. No worries. No drama. No bil...

    Morning silence, a cup of good mint mate, the need to practice piano, the promise of a good morning… Life is good, indeed.

    There it was, written among the walls The young have fallen The elderly prays There it was, written on the walls The war started without a whisper, it begun like your every day life Sun moving past the mountains, birds singing with beauty, morning fros...

  • "I told you so."

    Rocks slip underfoot. Soft and warm, soothing water laps at my toes, pulls at my heart. The sunset glances off the water, sends stones of light skipping off the surface. Below… who knows what is below. But the surface looks perfect. Maybe that...

  • A Whisper in the Night

    I lay in bed, staring at the ceiling, unable to sleep. Thoughts swirl in my mind everytime I close my eyes. As a result, I toss and turn, the covers gathering around me like woven cord. After many hours of trying to forget my troubles, I close my eyes ...

  • Goodbye, Blue Sky

    It was quiet. Some would say “too quiet”, but she didn’t go in for that kind of cliche. A gentle breeze caressed her body and annoyingly pushed her hair into her eyes. The sun was out. Warm. Here in this open field, far from the cacophony of TV n...

  • His Choice

    He crouches down on the rock, surveys the landscape as best he can. He tells me that I should enjoy the view – someday my eyes will turn this into the haze of colors that he can barely see. As he stands I take his arm, guiding the old man careful...

  • Free From Life and Sin

    “You got my money, boy?” Hands outstretched, Paul turned to face the question, no answer but a faint smile. He regarded the bloated bear of a man and felt nothing. More rightly, he felt the great upwelling of anger and resentment for the pa...

  • There is no Silence in the Forest

    There is no silence in the forest Always subtle sounds. A perfect moment brings peace It is as if the trees sigh. Sun glistens off these trees Soft wind whispers Heartbeats. Breath of air. Frozen in time I am alive. There is no silence in the forest I ...

  • Frozen With Open Eyes (Mature)

    So it’s come to this? I couldn’t believe I was going to bleed out on this cold street when it happened, but now it’s real and I’ve fully accepted my fate. The frost on the side walk is comfortably numbing my gaping stab wound. D...
