Silent NightSilent NightSilent Night2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
There's something broken between us
The crystal bridge that bound our shores
It erupted and fell apart
In silence of the holy night
Majestic ice cubes shined so bright
Over the boiling lava stream
That flew on without compromise
Consuming love as it may seem
There's something frozen between us
Poor firmed water melted and cried
Its tacit tears dripped unwitnessed
Until they smothered river cruel
Left unable to find more fuel
For fire; world feels cold and dead
Like torch that forgot it once burned
It's dark, who'll take first step ahead?

I may seem cruel

I may seem insane
I may seem like a sociopath
I may seem like a criminal
But I am not

You put down the only humans who want to change the world for good
You are the one who abuses your children and your spouses with your choices
You are the one who calls your fellow humans fags because they wear black and cut
You are the one who pushed and stressed poor girls to anorexia so they could be beautiful

Love song museIn the dark of the predawn a man steps into an open spaceLove song muse2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Pensive, reflective, he turns and gazes out toward the East
To a mystic wellspring, for the lyrics of an unsung song
To be transcribed onto the parchment placed before him
Soon a Northern breeze caresses his ear, a gentle whisper
Carrying echoes of secret words from a woman far away
They mingle with his own as they flow through his mind
Until meaning is birthed within his heart, and so spoken
Words tumble forth as shapes, a creation, a dream realized
Pages are darkened, written, the way such songs are sung
But this is a new love song, made existent, love manifest
And his dream now realized, he pauses, mindful, caring
Turning now, he faces North, imagining that far off place
Feelings of passion flow, desire inflames the heart’s intent
His love song transformed, now a living letter, given flight
An eon of timeless moments, as if borne on angel wings
For the woman, completed by startling moments of love
The letter falling gen
Commas Before AND in a SeriesIn American English usage, a comma should precede and with three or more items in a series.Commas Before AND in a Series4 years ago in Editorial More Like This
Example: I would like to order a salad, a sandwich, and dessert.
Newspapers and magazines do not generally use this rule, as print space is too valuable to use on what might be considered extraneous punctuation. However, print publications will use the final comma before and if it is needed to avoid confusion.
Example: Her $10 million estate was split among her husband, daughter, son, and nephew.
Omitting the comma after son would have led the reader to believe that the son and nephew had to split one-third of the estate (each receiving one-sixth), rather than understanding that each relative received one-fourth of the estate.

The Day My Poem was written
Sunday Morning at 3am
Daytime sky is of a Soft and Gentle
Vanilla and A Sun of Dark Azure.
Not expectant of what we know...
at least what we know for sure.
The Oceanic Waters are of a Crimson Hue;
with Foam of a Deep Amathyst Imbue.
The Tides Crash upon windswept shores
of a silvering white and a ambering gold
and every piece of silicon and sand
has within it a new dream that someone
shall unfold and behold.
Within this water is aquatic life
that is unlike our own as it reinforces
every joint,muscle fiber,tissue,cartilidge and bone.
The water here is really great for our human blood;
As it revitalizes and enriches it with all that
we get depleated of.
All of The Tree's Bark and Roots are of
a Dark Earthy Brown with a Slight Hue of Gray;
The Leaves are of Mamalade Orange
and Laced with fine lines of Magenta for display.
The Grass is of Hazel,Lavendar and White;
The Breeze smells of Jasmine an
