-flaming Famous-

Poem By Daniel Murphy

Bursts of orange-yellow kill the darkness
Widened eyes look on as each one roars.

A warming experience of bright, blazing blasts
Feelings of awe and wonder as up above each soars.

The glistening glow in the blinding black bellows
It brings closer family, friends and neighbouring fellows.

It calls to come so as to watch it dance
And around the badly moonlit sky it likes to prance.

Friendly faces fell invisible so much I could not see
I’d hear the roar and spot the blaze:

For it wants those few moments of fame-
And I’m happy to have walked a long time to see the bright-ball craze.

It's time for another day
When the sun chases the darkness away.

The light creeps through.

Violent Silence-In Response To Virginia Tech Killings

Brought about by madness
He takes a loaded gun.
He wants a bloody frenzy
So takes more than just the one.

Is it not love
That calls out your name?
Is it not love
That eases your pain?

Nature’s True Intention

Strip away the cloth
Reveal your natural layer.
Bear no man-made garment
Display your skin and hair.

Mirror, Mirror

Vanity you’ve come to know
So much so you’re called a pro.

A high-pitched scream with every pimple

Arena Of Love

Battered little heart
Look how you’re bruised
You took such a beating
To which you are used.
