Wishing It Could Be This Way (A Poem)

Dream I

Every new morning grants our heart’s desire as we emerge from the night’s embrace

Roses blooming in the light of your eyes causes a smile to form on my face

Guitar strings strumming soft melodies, for you I dedicate a sweet serenade

Pain and loss are relics of the past as our never-ending future, gently cascades

An erotic parley of love holds the world’s evil at bay

The torment and stress of getting by from day to day gives way

to carefree walks together by the Oceanside in a loving embrace

No anger, no war, no hatred, no jealousy, no deceit

This is the essence of the universe surrounding us that repeats

Wishing life could be this way for us every single day

Just A Thought


Thought I’d share this sent to me from a friend! It is thought provoking as well as humorous.

Friends For All Seasons (A Poem)


Friends I

WHO is the constant extrovert, always on the go

Never a person that crossed her path

That she didn’t desire to know

WHAT was rather the curious sort that always landed in troubleblackeye

He would frequently get us involved in brawls

Often resulting in me seeing double

WHERE tended to disturb my peace, never allowing me to rest

Always wanting to be on the go

Sometimes, I found him to be quite a pest

WHEN was a very good friend of mine that never failed to show a good time

He would always help me to remember pleasant moments

Especially those that were in my prime

Now pondering WHY’s place in my life always gave reason to pause

Though I would enjoy many hours in her company

Her nature never stopped reflecting around cause

Finally, HOW was always exasperating  never showing very much faith in me

Time with her felt like being in school

Honestly, I’d rather stay home and watch Jeopardy

Altogether now they formed an interesting group indeed

Collectively exploring their way through this life

Individually, all are the perfect friends giving me exactly what I need

De-Evolution of Being (A Poem)


What a light that shines through – so sparkling, so bright!

Greatness foretold just on the edge of the night

There were obstacles for sure both natural and contrived

upon which pain and hatred are derived

Faith questioned and alliances have no meaning

The lost choir is revealed now the child is weaning

from dancing fairies and earthly delights

the Truth is at hand along with the will to fight

the possessed, the giants, and that which goes bump in the night

This battle does humble, twist and turns the soul

leaving the mind and the spirit less whole

until the very nature of the adversary abides within

when nightfall and the sunrise does become twin

Indistinguishable, iridescent and inescapable one from another

No Father to console thee and death is imminent for the Earth Mother

Though much that is known, there is no where to grow

Swift judgement is courted, nay demanded in hope of repose!

Goldielocks III

Home Invasion by Derelict Teenager Ends Violently (A Goldilocks Story)

Story by Mavrik

Late yesterday evening in a Chicago suburb a 17 year old female whose identity is currently being withheld from the media, illegally entered the home of Lewis Anthony (Papa) Bare while he was out at a local restaurant with his family.  The young lady entered the two story Tudor style dwelling through a first floor rear window.   According to the police report, after infiltrating the premises the teen preceded to make herself to home by  consuming the food contents of the Bare’s  refrigerator – to include sampling various yogurts, reheating the remains of a rather large smoked ham (partially eaten) and finally settling on several microwavable dinners.

At some point there was evidence suggesting that she spent time in the Family room as the 50 inch wall mounted smart television was left on and food debris were observed on several furniture pieces with the bulk of the remains found on a plush leather settee.

After enjoying her dinner and a show, the plucky teen retired to the bedroom areas on the second floor of the home.  According to Captain Locks of the Chicago Police Department, the girl went through several of the rooms before retiring to that of The Bares’ youngest child.  There was evidence that the intruder spent time playing several games on an Xbox system prior to falling comfortably asleep tucked underneath blankets on a loft-styled bed belonging to the child.


At approximately 2145 hours, Mr Bare returned home with his wife, teenage daughter and twelve year old son.  Shortly after entering the residence, Mr Bare and his wife along with his daughter began noticing various anomalies around the home. “It was a most peculiar and frightening thing to observe half-eaten food items laying around and your television left on”, the 57 year old Bare told reporters.  “I didn’t know what to think but there sure was definitely a sense of trepidation”, he went on to explain.  His son, also named Lewis whom they refer to as Baby Bare or Junior as he prefers to be called, had already preceded upstairs to the toilet prior to entering his room where he found the intruder.  My son had yelled out, “Hey, Dad come up here now!”, or something to that effect. I immediately told my wife and daughter to notify the police and wait at the neighbour’s house next door.  “It was unbelievable! You never expect this sort of thing could happen to you”, Maya Bare (wife of Lewis) told reporters.

Lewis Bare immediately took one of his golf clubs from the downstairs closet on his way Goldielocks IIupstairs to his son’s room. The intruder, startled by Juniors’ shrill alert, dashed out of the bed and proceeded past the young boy towards the stairwell where she encountered Papa Bare with his 9 Iron.  “I was quite fortunate to have taken that particular club as I felt most comfortable with it Lewis stated”. It felt “just right” in my hands, he went on to state. A melee ensued during the encounter as Lewis knocked the bold, young invader down the stairwell.  The teen fractured her leg on the way down the steps and remained incapacitated on the stairwell landing until the police officers arrived.  “The Bares were quite fortunate as incidents of this nature could have ended very differently”, Captain Locks informed the army of reporters outside of the scene of the incident.

The intruder was taken from the home by the local ambulance unit and transferred to a nearby hospital where she will be treated for her injuries prior to being charged for criminal trespass, breaking and entering.  “That asshole broke my leg! I’m gonna get you back for this motherf**ker!”, she was overheard fuming as she was taken away from the premises. “This entire episode has certainly taught me a valuable lesson”, Papa Bare ranted.  First of all I will invest in a home security alarm system as well as a pet or guard dog. Secondly, I will make sure not to keep food favourites on hand for any future invaders”, he said jokingly.


Hope you enjoyed it!
