He Stoked The Fires

by ladyliterati

he stoked the fires

hiding behind white walls

reveled in the discord

imagined himself just:

the jester’s jester…O’Prunty

The winds swirl around me,
Empty of all, save a fine grit,
Abrasive and slowly eroding,
One repetitive day at a time
Until it’s finally over,
Six feet under or the oven,
And life no longer plucks at
You.

Another word for posture.

SOFT SCOOP

by mikeb

ice

 

I’m wrestling with the ice cream
Inside this soft scoop box
My spoon is bent,my patience spent
I’m trying to outfox
The barrier before me
To get my just dessert
I’ll hack at that unyielding mass
No matter what the hurt.

Defeat

by Nick Anthony

Captured by demons.
Long nails gouge my ego
With gnarled fingers.
Ever they’ve crept in my wake.
At last, my race is over.

I DON’T DESERVE

by mikeb

i-dont-deserve

 

I don’t deserve to be the one
Who Jesus died to save
I don’t deserve to be the one
Who Christ took to the grave
Then He rose to give me life
A wretched soul like me
Why did He go through all that pain
Just to set me free.

Poem of the Years — Pelicans leave the room

by paturnerlee

Thanks to an old school friend I am able to share my first published poem from 1972 when I was 14 years old !!!!!

Pelicans leave the room

 

I cry with pain

Vomit flies about the room with frustration

My inner sense is black and forgetful.

MASK

by mikeb

mask

Beneath the mask you’re wearing,
There lies a crumpled heap,
A mass of contradictions,
That you’re desperate to keep,
If only people knew you,
A heap of sin and shame,
They would surely shun you,
They wouldn’t be to blame.
