Martin Elder on Some thoughts on the definitions of "Smudge" as per Merriam-Webster (32 minutes ago)
Past has always chased Future's Present;
for Past envies its favored presence.
Mockery laced with lust
as injections plump busts.
Yet, Children of the Sun
will remain to be shunned.
Hot remains split like us
till we reach Exodus!
Hollowed we lie down deep;
your ass best wake from sleep!
Past was shiny, now played out.
Present is dying and s...

A snake that wraps
its slimy body
It has a bite
that transmits itself
into the other person.
How to ward off
it’s terrible grip?
Best to stand still
heart - bite your lip.
Best not to move
or show when you're
in its grasp,
though your eyes
are green and all

McDaid’s Folk Club
We carefully stepped through the seated crowd,
she smiled in surprised delight
and pulled you down
to whisper invitingly.
I watched the young guitarist finger-pick,
thought about her possessive
hand placed on
your willing arm and felt sick.

I am going to do something completely out of spite
i know it's bad it makes me sad it's definetley not right
It's something inside me that takes over when i'm jealous
this certian urge causes me to become rebellious
I will regret this in the future and i will be sorry
as for now i'l do it proud and not have to worry
I apologise in advanced for this
You'll find out some day...

So I feel like I've uncovered my own rendition of a super hero power
When I meet a man I can estimate his dick size within an hour
So this may seem a little seedy, a bit sleezy, but when a man overcompensates with money why does he think it will impress me
One guy on a night out handed me his credit card and told me to drink as much as I dare at his expense
I politely declined ...

Unhealthy thoughts they form and sworm inside my head, they all are of you and the things you never did or said, guided by jealousy, the short leash tightens on me, I'm wanting it to rip off my head, in bed at night alone, staring at my blank cell phone, the thought what you could be doing fills me with dread, they say trust is a must, I never understood all that fuss, oh I wish these thoughts wou...

And in her arms a baby
bright as a daffodil.
Rays of light
from this child.
He remembers a game -
“do you like butter?”
and thinks he sees
a golden glow reflected
on his young wife’s throat…
the baby has
a smile that gleams
audacious as the sun!
as a full breast is nuzzled

Thor (He's A Jolly Good Fellow)
Another bloody immigrant
has just moved in next door -
he’s North East European
and goes by the name of Thor.
So as good old Mister Farage says
“There ought to be a law
that stops them coming here
cause we can’t take any more”.
He’s got long blonde tussled hair
and a chiselled square jaw
and he’s taking British jobs
at the local Ikea store -

Stop standing on my shadow
Why are you trying to hijack my dreams?
Do you want to be like me?
Do you want to stop me from being myself?
You say you want to inspire me
I feel you conspire against me
Two lovers of creativity
Your opinion of you, far exceeds
That of me.
Edging further forward
Trying to establish yourself
As the master of our trade

You, the non-aligned. Celebrate for its own sake, complement the creative, rough the smooth out of the level question of hate, vitalizing the style of hard-line writing leverage, spurning the potential agendas of a system whose vital interests supress a stronger passion ~ go join, if you must, be the instrument of forced craft, it has a definitive strength that soon runs out of legs, yet b...
