Sports (Ti Yu) On Saturday, July 20, 2013 by Average Poet


I'm not as resilient as I used to be
though I still know how to bounce
just make your move and then we'll see
if you're even worth an ounce

I've labored so many hours away
without showing much of a gain
my constant futility tends to belay
resistance to unresolved pain

that cripples those corroding joints
reluctant to bear the brunt
of shame a prideful ploy appoints
when jockeying for front.

The Mermaid by Clemens Esterel


There are memories
as far as a
A castle of sand near a shore of the ocean
Days of one gone summer
One gone summer
The days of the summer when love began
There was an old hotel
on some lonely
Where we felt as the prince and the mermaid
And only the moon saw our secret kiss
Days of one gone summer
One gone summer
Dreams were born and future was new
The summer when love
was young
And again I felt your smile
on some days no
sun shone
Again I died for a kiss one night I was alone
And I never dare to forget
the tender kiss
of the little
