    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

    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

    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
