Rhythmical Literary Pieces

Updated on May 13, 2011


 I hold on to both sides

Not seeking a fun ride

Hands wrapped around

Feet not touching ground

Seated on top a plank

Drawing mental blanks

As the ice trickles down

Allowing my body to frown

Connected to metal links

Time passing within my blinks

Temperature below the zero

Will I be rescued by a hero?




I drive down the road, pitch black

Driving so fast should I look back?

Just one last look before I leave

If I do will it misconceive?

I glance over to my side mirror

I’ve never seen it so clearer

Thirty seconds to green

Leaving behind this past scene

To leave or to stay which will I choose

Will I happily win or sadly loose

A decision not so nicely said

Stepped on the pedal before it turned red



Standing in the shallow

Hoping for everything mellow

Will my light ever shine?

Boxed within my mind

White screen reflected

My mind so unprotected

Just trapped within my walls

Hoping my ceiling won’t fall

The waves are coming in strong

Take me to where I belong

I know this isn’t my home

I wish to no longer roam


Restore my health

Give me strength

Give me wealth

Restore life length

Give me Fame

Give me Fortune

Handed shame

Handed misfortune

If I wish upon tonight

Once again visual sight

Wrinkled faces

Wrinkled hands

History traces

Age demands

      ..pure poetry for those people in the know (even me, although I remain, yours truly, as an 'outsider' to this genre - preferring to deconstruct and subvert it (somewhat) but that said and a little shameless self-promotion for epi (grinning like a Cheshire cat) you are and will always be my queen - Bellaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!

      And I love your 'nod' to Andy Warhol in your profile image - gotta admit - there's only one you!!!! And believe me - it's a royally fabulous YOU !!!!!
