• Protean commented on the post, spiked 4 years, 4 months ago

    Placed in my drink
    poisoned by what I don’t know
    made to get me stinking
    a trick thought best
    when no one thinking
    a release to see you to
    another place
    a sweet release

  • Protean commented on the post, cursed 4 years, 4 months ago

    Damned and defiled
    brought low by the name
    defamed and abolished
    from the lists of mankind
    stayed beneath the Hellish
    rhythms taken down low
    to the brethren of cinders and ash

  • Protean commented on the post, integrated 4 years, 4 months ago

    Pulled within the limits
    boundaries now surround me
    gather all that is relevant
    taken from the scope
    of the known and the to be learned
    taken from the pool of conformity.

  • Protean commented on the post, eligible 4 years, 5 months ago

    Come and get me here I am
    raw and tender
    ready to go
    ripe as an apple plucked fresh from a tree
    looking for nothing but sweet love
    come set me free
    adrift in a passion to soon will end
    with nowhere to go

  • Protean commented on the post, globe 4 years, 5 months ago

    Throughout there is all to be
    encompassed by the greater seas
    transposed and fixed on this axis
    taking spins
    by Natures finger tip
    to tumble into oblivion
    routed course of stygian infinity

  • Protean commented on the post, trainer 4 years, 5 months ago

    gains are made
    through hard work and toil
    grist of tarnished oil
    sanded down to the bare work
    worked into and polished
    a guiding hand to lead
    to the promise always there

  • Protean commented on the post, cocoon 4 years, 5 months ago

    Swaddled in the security of
    silken threads
    continuous strand wound
    a steel binding, securing
    warmth and containment ensuring
    freedom a fantasy, a whispered seed
    outside is life
    within all knowing, all denial

  • Protean commented on the post, rented 4 years, 5 months ago

    Keep it to yourself
    always on borrowed time
    subtle thief who steals
    and suckles the brambles of an
    my wasted youth
    stay awhile and relive the past
    sudden gasps and wintry memories
    of struggles since won and lost

  • Protean commented on the post, devastated 4 years, 5 months ago

    Bereft and set in desolation
    barren landscape of a soul laid waste
    on a foreign oasis of no return
    from the morrow and near the dawn
    sent from where I am
    to a place I’ll forever be
    a new fallen flame
    empty without aim

  • Protean commented on the post, miss 4 years, 5 months ago

    Is it an unmarried woman
    or a near hit?
    goes by like a hiss
    take a shot and not hit the mark
    mark can dodge
    stay out of the way
    here it comes
    try and keep it at bay

  • Protean commented on the post, stale 4 years, 6 months ago

    Dry as a cracker
    pale, ashen waste in my mouth
    a musty mess with no concern
    for taste and a texture that’s
    a wimpy soft disappointment
    always reminds me of
    old age and neglect

  • Protean commented on the post, polo 4 years, 6 months ago

    All go and show the prince
    atop the steed in his mighty stance
    go the round and play the game
    take a chance on what you see
    the field is green
    the goal is set
    the chance is yours
    come see my pet

  • Protean commented on the post, weaving 4 years, 6 months ago

    In and out
    the meandering ways of
    the constant route through
    a tangle web of a daily
    trail of anger and pride
    going past myself from day to day
    seeing the same person in a mirrored
    labyrinth of to and fro

  • Protean commented on the post, settlement 4 years, 6 months ago

    On the coast
    where they are all host
    for a bevy of recitals
    and Friday half time dances
    taking care to spend the money
    on anything they might fancy
    going on the midnight spin
    with wine and women and
    a camera’s hungry grin

  • Protean commented on the post, headband 4 years, 6 months ago

    Squeeze it tight
    like holding my brains in
    stop the constant rain
    of unsettled schemes
    return the mantle of the dreams
    with this terry cloth crown of thorns

  • Protean commented on the post, trails 4 years, 6 months ago

    long thin lines
    coursing through the obstacles
    encountered in the maelstrom
    tattered worn byways of thoughts
    creeps up and batter long lost
    passions and diaphanous desires

  • Protean commented on the post, eleven 4 years, 7 months ago

    time is on the go
    even now as far as I know
    where it ends as far as we can
    mandatory negligence of the day
    watch my life slip away

  • Protean commented on the post, caramel 4 years, 7 months ago

    Long strings of saccharin goo
    let’s me play and do
    what my mouth wants and is due
    pried off the roof of my mouth
    with a silent prayer and oath
    while I swallow twice
    that brown thick slice

  • Protean commented on the post, moonshine 4 years, 7 months ago

    Drink deep of my light
    sweet sunshine of the night
    caress the inner plight and
    remove the omen of the darkness
    and give me vision
    seared by whiteness
    spark the juice of revival

  • Protean commented on the post, viewpoint 4 years, 7 months ago

    there’s a place I see
    reaching out from mindless spaces
    places seeking names
    places seeking destinies
    all within the obstinate darkness
    holding back our stunted imaginations
