Indignation

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Jan 19, 2014

Exploding anger Spilling forth Bitter Abomination Creating a tsunami Of torment Flooding the heart Each person becoming A virus within them selves Feasting like a piranha Slaughtered in the frenzy Flesh and bones At times consuming one's self As he eats others Anguished venom Animosity poisoning the wind No unadulterated air Lingering on Until the dust settles Residual of broken bones Spirits berated in sorrow Collecting these puzzles to life Praying for harmony Where there is no Beginning or end.....

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.

First Written in Opinions of Eye

The Two Frogs

By Coach Phatty, published on Sep 6, 2013

...and just die. He jumped even harder and finally made it out. When he got out, the other frogs said, “Did you not hear us?” The frog explained to them that he was deaf. He thought they were encouraging him the entire time.

Lessons of the story:

There is power of life and death in the tongue. An encouraging word to someone who is down can lift them up and help them make it through the day. So be careful of what you say. Speak life to those who cross your path. The power of words… it is sometimes hard to understand that an encouraging word can go such a long way.

The Healing Power of Words

By Coach Phatty, published on Jun 28, 2013

Like any good mother, when Karen found out that another baby was on the way, she did what she could to help her 3-year-old son, Michael, prepare for a new sibling. They found out that the new baby was going be a girl, and day after day, night after night, Michael sang to his sister in mommy's tummy. He was building a bond of love with his little sister before he even met her. The pregnancy progressed normally for Karen, an active member of the Panther Creek United Methodist Church in Morristown, Tennessee! In time, the labor pains came. Soon it was every five minutes, every... (more)

The Power of Words

By melanie jean juneau, published on May 7, 2013

...and faults is 90% of our problems. If we are brave enough to look at ourselves with clear, fully transparent eye glasses, we can change. When we are desperate enough, we take our feet off the brakes that prevent inner growth and jump-start a process that takes on a life of its own.

Words, especially descriptive words are powerful. What comes out of our mouthes really does help bring sunshine or shadows into our lives and those around us. Even without applying cognitive therapy, by simply catching ourselves using overly negative adjectives, we really can change our emotional... (more)

Painted Picture

By Barbara MacDonald , published on May 7, 2013

Today I paint a picture Longings on a canvas My lips leaving their colors My hands their caress... Woven on this masterpiece The warmth of your sweet skin Only just beginning Never wanting it to end... With each stroke sweet emotion Leaving us wanting more Tell me what is hidden Behind this open door... Exploring sweet surrender Lost in this embrace The portrait of fascination Written on our face... Our hearts fill with desire I see it in your eyes Motivating us both higher Who knew we could fly... A portrait painted freely Each movement meant to be Etched into a snapshot Everlasting... (more)

The Things People Say

By Scorpion Sting, published on Apr 5, 2013

The things people say right in front of you are sometimes very disturbing, Especially when what is being said is in another language that you don't understand. For years my wife and now 17 y/o daughter have been coming home telling me they just know the Asian women working at the nail salon are talking about them in a negative way. To be honest, I have always just blown it off. It has been my experience that most women always think someone is whispering something about them. I have seen this my whole life with family, friends, spouses, daughters, co-workers, and yes, even with the strippers... (more)

Love Beyond Closeness

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Feb 19, 2013

...to enter

I ask the moon to shine it's splendor unending

Press your face against mine and breathe

Bring a mountain river to quench my thirst...

There is a closeness greater than union

This is not a joining of bodies

The language of love has no words

The desire is of the soul and sets us free...

Come to me on the wings of truth

Offer me only what is mine to have

These words, the smoke of fire inflamed

Branded inside my silent eyes ...

No words...love can not be said...

Tender Words

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Sep 25, 2012

Words so tender They melt in my heart No matter what happens It is never torn apart Taking on a life of it's own Beyond and above anything We have ever known... So now we are here What shall we do Surrender to it Or walk away blue You do my leave Neither do I Somehow it's written Into the sky Looking with stars in our eyes At times making us both cry Why is this real Shall we both heal Remembering a purpose Of unknown appeal "I think I'll just worry about this tomorrow..." "Refusing to live in any sorrow..." Copyright © 2012 Barbara MacDonald

Bridges of words

By Uttam Gill, published on Sep 12, 2012

From the ruins, I picked up broken times The shrapnel of hurt made words to bleed Truth in its trajectory took a course to reach Somewhere someone scanned the bleeding words Oblivious of this fact and I kept scripting my woes From my scriptures the parallels were drawn In my retributive mode I begged for attention I yelled in my passages and got drowned in applauses

Over the rejected oaths and broken pledges, I built bridges I was too busy to note that someone crossed the bridge I felt someone shuffled besides me someone unknown yet so familiar walked in The divine light seeped in... (more)
