    a sudden inspiration ….and I dealt the following
    I made it up
    line by line as I typed

    but the event happened....and continues
    here you go...

    I felt it coming
    though I saw not
    a twist of fate
    a change of plot
    I lay beneath a night time light
    and touched upon my pending plight
    wounded deep but did not bleed
    I lay helpless and in need
    and to this day when I regress
    I cringe to dwell upon the mess
    I walked away from what should have killed
    I did not sweat, I was not chilled
    and Death does follow
    a playful joker
    to call my bluff as
    we play poker
    he overshadows my bed at night
    when I awake
    he takes flight
    he pulls my pillow from beneath my head
    I turn to face what I dearly dread
    but as I open my eyes to see
    he has vanished
    he did flee
    but now and then with bold affront
    he takes hold and does confront
    I have wakened to myself at rest
    as a dead man
    hands on chest
    the pillow tucked beneath my head
    I lay as if a man be dead
    the red blanket drawn and smooth
    a point of which I can't disprove
    he wore red as he took my arm
    I awoke with much alarm
    Death had laid me down to rest
    but not to die
    only for jest
    hehehehehehe

    Religion:
    biblical believer
    I picked up a fossil
    And Lord what a buzz
    For I held in my hand
    Who I once was.

    This one, just for another thread :)

    I see naught but a world full of love,
    alighted by a white dove.
    A world full of genuine caring souls,
    liberated and free of the ways of old.
    Thus the hand of God is in wide embrace,
    Choose your path, choose your fate. :D

    Regards Tony

    come 2 me
    little scone
    your time was short
    your life is done

    i lift u up
    and put you down
    bright blue berries
    nom nom nom

    friday afternoon
    snacky time
    my carb obsession
    relentless and sublime

    summer days
    long and warm
    conversations
    upside-down

    i'm on the outside
    i'm inside out
    turned around
    a leaky garden spout

    words are pockets
    packets are soil
    this weeks over
    i surrender the toil
