Dissilusionment Defined

What becomes of the broken-hearted man.


land of confusion

desire’s lost illusions

an inevitable conclusion


Jack Collier

hit the road Jack,

and don’t look back

Times Like This

if there’s something I can’t do for you


dispair’s stygian midnight darkness

the lost  bloom of rose’s red dark abyss

my spirit told me there’d be times like this

my dreams told me there’d be days like these

and my heart warned me there’d be love like this

but nothing told me that there could be hurt like this

ending this painful bliss with our one last farewell kiss

English Words You’ve Never Used

All slang is a metaphor, and all metaphor is poetry.  ~  G.K. Chesterton

Some say that all slang is bad.  And if the Queen doesn’t use a word, then neither should I.  All I know is that I like to surprise and baffle Americans with my very English vocabulary.
