Dirty Games

Dirty Games short poem

People play the dirty games,
all for little fun or some fame.

They hide behind the fake smile,
deceiving the look in their eyes.

They fail to hear the human heart,
so miserably they tear it apart.

Their empty laughs fill the room,
lovingly cherish someone’s doom.

What often they don’t realize,
tears will one day drop from their eyes.

Not because they will realize the pain,
‘Coz someday they will gauge their gains.

Love lost, true friendships strained,
all for little fun or some fame?

Do we really have to play the dirty games,
Can’t we all be honest for a change?

Dirty Pretty Words

Dirty Pretty Words prose poem

Incandescent lights stream across the stark blackened night breathing in the intoxicating smoke swirling around you; Deep cynical voices cackling manically rumbling through the dank dark corridors, phosphorescent lace velvet floating in the calm cool air; Tantalizing deep dank thoughts
