Lie Anyway

By D. Sager, published on Sep 12, 2013

Speak with your face turned away,

words that I long for you to say.

I believe them even if they may

keep my logic in constant sway

Holding my aching mind at bay

go ahead my love, lie anyway.

The Conundrum

By melanie jean juneau, published on Jan 17, 2013

It is a conundrum that few can figure out. People look at my smiling face , their eyebrows shoot up, their mouths drop open and they sputter,

Your happy but you have 9 kids !!

There are all sorts of components to my life, my soul and joyful spirit but one aspect to my happiness is one that most people have never considered. Large families are hilarious. and their homes even more so.

First picture a large, 1886, quaint house with all sorts of quirks. A window became a doorway to a hundred year old addition. It must have been some one with an odd sense of humour who cut... (more)

The Mystery of Suffering

By melanie jean juneau, published on Nov 1, 2012

If

you feel sorry

for a

struggling

butterfly

in empathy

cut the cocoon

helping him

escape,

his wings

will be

deformed.

If

you allow

a butterfly

to struggle,

emerging slowly

agonizingly

from his prison,

his wings

will be

perfectly formed.

Them

By D. Sager, published on Jan 12, 2012

I will never be without them, they follow me everywhere, when I feel they have finally gone, with vengeance they find me again. Forcing themselves on me, insisting I acknowledge them. I can scarce resist their efforts, so enduring and persistent they have become. I give them place, being preeminent in my existence, being associated always with me, my companions, never to leave. I entertain them now, with some resistance. I allow them to have their way with me, to work me into submission. As I give way to them, I stand back, in my mind wondering, perhaps this the way I must go, to walk with... (more)

Angel, Part 6

By D. Sager, published on Jan 11, 2012

Driving her to the club once again, so tired from working all day and watching her all night. We parted with our usual exchange of kisses and hugs. I drove away, looking back at my Angel, her innocent looks were slowly changing, leaving a traces of fear and emptiness. My Angel, I want to take you away from all this. Gathering myself, like I always did when I had to leave her, I drove away slowly. The day I drove away faster than I came to her would be the end. Halfway home, my phone is ringing...its Angel, “Baby, don't come back, I’m staying here.” “What!” I screamed into the phone,... (more)

Red Trails - I need to feel (Poem of the Cutter)

By D. Sager, published on Jan 5, 2012

A razor drawn, through the colors of my life

Red trails follow, enough to spite.

Angles deep and narrow channel

Direct the flow, excite the annals.

Now I’m left with the tint of life

Spreading quickly toward a light.

I yield again to the cutting's peace

Nothing left not even speech.

The Power Is Yours

By D. Sager, published on Nov 30, 2011

You have an energy in you. You feel it building, through the hours, through the days, and through the years. Perhaps from success, perhaps from suffering, no matter how, it builds. It longs to be let out, to be used. You feel the need to do something. Celebrate, cut loose, anything! You feel the need to do, do, do something. Now, slow down for a second. You can use this energy for something. Wait before you spend it. Acknowledge it. Then use it to create something...words, music, art, or an idea. Anything to bring life. The energy is there. You will do one of two things, destroy or... (more)

Poisoned Love

By D. Sager, published on Nov 22, 2011

“Love does not last forever, then?" "He asked me the same thing this morning," she said. "No, it does not - not love that has been betrayed. One realizes that one has loved a mirage, someone who never really existed. Not that love dies immediately or soon, even then. But it does die and cannot be revived.” ~ Mary Balogh, Simply Perfect

I am surprised at myself. Being a spiritually enlightened man, well acquainted with my own faults, and well exercised at forgiving a mountain of offenses against me, have found myself at an insurmountable barrier. I have bitterness at a betrayal, no not... (more)

A Life of Pain?

By Shari G, published on Sep 10, 2011

Dear Shari...

I met an amazing person about 5 years ago. I cannot believe how lucky that I have been, but since last November we fell in love with each other. Since then we have had a truly wonderful time, I have never known such a person as her, she is sooo different from anyone that I have ever known and I am sure that I will never meet another person like her, nor do I want to. The issue: she is married. I can see why she was subconsciously looking for a new love, as he isn't a good person for her. I can also see how much she has changed in the past 9 months, she is much... (more)
