Attempts to develop the creative poetic portions of my brain.
Welcome to where I exercise my brain by writing whatever flows through it without judgement.... that's why I've rated it +13.... for the children... better safe than sorry! All rules are out the window... Grammar, spelling, social etiquette... if you can't understand a writings meaning, it probably doesn't have one. There are no rules. Please feel free to drain your brain for the sake of creativity... if you dare!

I had dental surgery today. One of my teeth developed a cavity that was unnoticed until it began getting packed with food. It never hurt but the Doc said it was too far gone and had to come out. Well, to make a long story short, the tooth had grown two roots instead of the usual one and had to be surgically removed. The procedure wasn't terribly painful but after the local wore off... OUCH! There will be no poetry writing today.

Tree frogs loudly croak
to attract suitable mates.
High school basketball.

The rain trickles through
the cracks in the window's glass,
A mother's last breath.

The sound of traffic
traveling on wet pavement,
A lonely wife's tears.

A songbird calls out
from the treetops to his mate,
A black hearse passes.

Cloudy blue-gray sky
masking the snow-capped mountains,
A lonesome poet.

A fallen fruit tree
grows fungus and sphagnum moss,
A forgotten grave.

I don't know what her name is,
I don't know what her game is,
All I know is that she seems to be
The one who brings me joy.
I'll trust in my heartbeat,
As I'm sitting in the hot seat,
And if she'd simply look at me,
I'd be a happy boy.
a happy boy,
Her attention I'd enjoy,
a happy boy.
At first I'll play it coy,
a happy boy.
With her feelings I'll toy,
a happy boy.
And if she'd get annoyed,
unhappy boy,
I'd be an unhappy boy.

My mother died of lung cancer
no one could answer her disease
it matters to me to pause
and back a cause to find a cure.

My friend's father had a stroke
no one could answer his disease
it matters to my friend to pause
and back a cause to find a cure.

Stroke matters to my friend
as lung cancer matters to me
together we live among the others
sisters brothers dads mothers.

If what matters to me is different
than the things that matter to you
you'd be wrong to think I don't care
because, believe me brother, I do.

A man was imprisoned behind a fence,
surrounded by an intense cloud
that smelled of dry cleaner fluid.
His anger and frustration grew daily
and was hurtful enough
to make death seem attractive.
When he was finally granted freedom,
he was disappointed to see that the world
was no different than his old trap.

Without walls, there is no hope of escape.

I get it now
somehow the knowledge
came freely to me
from out of the blue sea of heaven

I engage in purpose,
I do what I'm willing,
Happiness is meaning,
Justifies suffering.

Blindsided by the pints,
Drinking lightens my way.
I fight against chaos,
Though overwhelmed today,

Nothing feels as good as when the pain stops hurting.

Unless you've seen the years,
Pass by as if a day,
You might not understand,
What I'm about to say.

It may be delusive,
Attempting to look strong,
As I come to cold terms,
Long past my own swan song.

Abilities I've lost,
The grogginess of life,
Embarrassment, weakness,
Compound my daily strife.

If I may quote Shakespeare,
As if he speaks to me,
There's but one last question,
"To be or not to be."
