Waiting I was, I had always been,
The question was always for what
A moment, a feeling, opportunity perhaps,
While the answers, I know, I had already got

I waited for change in my life and it came,
Then wished it would go away
Realized this change, I did not want,
Then wished and waited
To have my old way

Looking Up

by graypoet

“When you get to the bottom, many times you find a hole with your name on it..”

Charles Townsend

There are times when you look at life
And wonder how you got in this position
Is it that you give to much of yourself
Or expect someones love without question. Continue reading

I write the words
As they write me
They want to be read
And so do I.

Oxymoron – Drugs

by Colly

An easy transfusion.
Most don’t realize this.
Drugs are my comrade.
A cure for boredom.
Appease my need for risks.
Pushed into this..?
Friends – found easily.
Walk by my side.
Always a good time. Continue reading

Where is thy humane, of yesteryear?

The world so tyrannical, at its fall…!

‘Golden heart’ of compassion so sacred..

Lay buried down now, past the long ages.

The scriptures of ‘Vedas’ and the hymns,

Unscantified, unglorified and unsung…!

Devotion to a ‘Deity’ and its belief, so bleak..

I invited a few friends over
They arrived a little chilled
But I was able to enjoy them
Together, a few hours killed. Continue reading

Friend or Loser

Lots of thoughts floating in my mind
probably surprising the different kind
Yet it seems when they fall to the page
It helps me suppress this internal rage. Continue reading

The Old Poet

by Peter Notehelfer


The old poet

works the puzzle

Words have shapes

edges that sometimes

stick together seamlessly

Or spark like flint on steel

At times he may compose

verses as in a hymnal

begging for melody

Or write lines of

shattered glass  Continue reading

When I am flustered by strong gales
There’s something to look forward to
The partaking of fine ales Continue reading

Colorful Pumpkin Smile

Something is here!
As the end of October draws near.
Does it see you?
With two eyes, nose and a mouth.
Within this field is where it will be. Continue reading

Anger as hot as a ball of fire
Often burns yourself on the bed of pyre
Unbearably your nerves are squeezed
When your dead-cold fear is unreleased

Sometimes you win

by Harry

Submitted by Bill. G.

He looked at me then quickly looked away

I saw his reaction but did not speak

I rose to my feet and headed towards the stage

I mounted the steps and then before the audience I stood


The lectern and the pointer my only tools of trade

The white board unmarked at this early stage

I cleared my throat and said my first words

“Good evening” echoed across the room

And so it goes

And so it goes
Stopping for none It blows
Body drained on thy knees
Strong wind or gentle breeze
A tiny wind hurricane grows
And so it goes

suddenly sorrowful souls surface

surviving, sunshine streams

dank, dark days dispersed,

darkness dispelled,

days dawn delightful

It was all
about electricity
back when in youth
we dangled loose wires
in the fuse box back seat
of the car learning by braille
lessons mothers never taught
Exploration of peaks valleys
with the awkward hands
still soft with childhood
The jolt just enough
to make us sit
up straight  Continue reading

Autumn’s Ebbing Call

by jaybluepoems


On edge of autumn’s ebbing call
I pause to hear a solemn hush
that breathes in whispered stance between
sweet fading fall and winter’s rush. Continue reading
