Ego

Some people chat on line to get to know people make new friends. Some do it boost, their egos to have a virtual affair, to exert their power, to chase capture and discard. Be wise, hold on to your heart, too good to be true? It probably is!

Would I look?

Would I look at you ,the same ,” regardless”
if your eyes were filled with pain
I would probably look closer, more information to obtain
I might want to support you in your struggle to survive
To try to hold a mirror to the you
behind the pain and strife
I would want to demonstrate the power of belief
Particularly those negatives that can become life’s thief
I would look for signs, that you could love yourself
A must to heal that pain, and to transend the past
Would I look at you ,the same ,” regardless”
if your eyes were filled with pain
I would look closer more information to obtain

Where do you stand?

Where do you stand, in  the summary of your life

Top, bottom, or middle, or just a worker in the hive

Are you on the treadmill, running out of control

Trying to please everybody, multiple roles

Do you see your flaws, rather than your strengths

Give to others, go to any lengths

Feel stressed and unhappy

Try to struggle on, be crappy

Maybe time to stop and take a breath

Review your priorities, centre yourself

If you love others,you have to love you

It enables,a more balanced point of view.


Just to say

William Carlos Williams an imagist poet wrote with great brevity and wrote a poem in note form called Just to Say .

I have attempted a poem in the same style
I asked you and you said

No you didn’t want one

Have been dropping hints 

About the benefits
I know we haven’t had 

a detailed discussion

I worry that hot water

bottles will burst
So I just want to say

I have ordered one

An electric blanket which

I hope will make us both
More comfortable 

Why rhyme

Words crawl across the page

Full of ideas, need to engage

Stories, prose or rhyme

Has to be rhyme, when , little time
Rhythms and rhymes feels so easy

Feel so right, work so cleanly

Poetry purists will say how cheesy

Expell their breath, very wheezy
An idea to express,  reaction to provoke 

A hope for debate, revolt, or quote

Human relationships float my boat

Love, lust and human trust, my promote
Why rhyme

Nice line

Tends to keep things 

On springs
I can do more rounded prose

Use large words,maybe pose

Metrical composition

Personification recognition
Versification 

Conflagragation 

As long as it rhymes 

Suits my paradigms
Why rhyme

Because I so love it!

Sadness sometimes lurks in a corner

But as an optimist,I try t be an informer

Control

Playing, positive, pleasure,

Words, wistful, wonder,

Games, graceful, gratification,

Modish, match, mastermind,

Male, mission,mesmerise,

Beware, bewitch, brazen,

Flirt, forsee, future,

Danger, dalliance,dependence,

Raise, rules, rocking,

Prey, prophetic, paralysis,

Hedonistic,hope, hunger,

Ego, extra, extended,

Reason, rationalise, stay in control.

A megabyte of madness 

A megabyte of madness – A Villanelle
You became a megabyte of madness

Since we met life’s never been the same

We frankly share happiness and sadness
No false catechism staunches blackness

We listen truly and do not shame

You became a megabyte of madness
We share our secrets with a cheerfulness

Plus a tut or maybe two, but never blame

We frankly share happiness and sadness
Friends across the ether, so priceless

Fate introduced us on a word game

You became a megabyte of madness
We highlight most of our flaws, with bluntness

But you cheer me when my world is aflame

We frankly share happiness and sadness
To say we are in love would be baseless

A different emotion we sustain

You became a megabyte of madness

We frankly share happiness and sadness
