About Buz_Bono


I am Buz Bono. A southerner and UGA graduate, now married to the girl that used to break my heart over and over again. I work in the corporate world but love physical and outdoor activities. I believe in helping those less fortunate than myself and building a better community. I love to write and express myself. I love drinking ice cold beer out of bottles and eating messy hot dogs at ballgames. I love the arts, ballet, music, visual arts but I also love mudding in my Jeep and kayaking white water streams. I am a huge Georgia Bulldog fan and will be for life. I especially love to dance with my wife.

Topic: DirtyMartini - Alan W. Jankowski - has passed away
Posted: 14 Mar 2017 15:38

Alan was as nice as they come. I am very saddened about the news of his passing. He loved poetry and helping new poets. Alan had a great sense of humor. Wherever his presence was he made good friends. He will be greatly missed.

Topic: Voting delay
Posted: 07 Dec 2014 15:27

The vote time delay is really out of sorts. I vote on a poem that's only a dozen lines long. Then read another micro story that is 10 lines long and I get a message that I can't vote on another story for 5 minutes. Why should I sit and wait 5 minutes when it only took seconds to read it?

This delay on micro stories, etc. has kept me from voting on several stories/poems. It is a delay that is not in reality to what we are reading. If it were stories that were 1000 words or more I could see that, but its not.

Topic: What’s for dinner?
Posted: 09 Oct 2014 20:42

Prime rib, baked potato, green salad, and ice cold beer.

American Cinderella aka Route 66 Heartbreak

Cinderella, oh Cinderella,  I heard you went to the ball.  You pranced and danced,  twisted and shook your booty.  In grand fashion, my Cinderella,  you tripped the light fantastic.  Dolled up, long legs and juicy red lips,  you went grinding on the prince,  twirling and parading in the spotlight.  I saw you driving down Route 66  in an old Chevy, top down, wind in your hair,  with a...

Recommended Read Sometimes To Write Of Love

Sometimes to write of love, tender feelings, longing and desire. But is that love? Sometimes sweet but often bitter. Or is it passion, a battle fought, a war of attrition? Love? Is it surrender or victory complete or mutual annihilation? Does love possess the soul or auction the heart? Is there fair exchange? It is torment and exhilaration, being one, ...

Love’s Pleading Salvation

The labyrinth of the heart  is full of hopes and dreams, entrapments and schemes, and dances to a blues harmony. The heart bleeds and scars, it writes the novel of life of defeats and victories, and sings an ode to the soul. I feel a hot breeze burning, conflict of power and submission, blood sizzling through my veins, conquer and be conquered. Lost under a black moon, ...

A Kiss

I caress your face, a gentle breeze blows your hair, the sun in your eyes. Your lips form a smile, I feel your eyes warm my soul, the heart’s tender touch.

Goodbye Dixie

You were the prettiest face, had the voice of an angel. Your laugh lit up the day,  your smile owned my heart. When first I saw you,  hypnotized in your grace,  lost in your big blue eyes,  I knew it would be you. Was it your innocent charm?  Dressed for church all fine  with a magnolia in your hair,  all I could do was stare. Your sweet precious voice  that mesmerized the boys,  set my...

Brown Eyes

Dark brown eyes of mystery, what hides in your soul? Do you hold joy or pain? Does a heart of love hide there? Dark brown eyes of mystery, why do you stare at me? What do you want with me? Will you steal away my soul? Dark brown eyes of mystery, why do you mesmerize me? What is your temptation? Will you hypnotize my heart? Dark brown eyes of mystery, what feelings...

The heart forlorn, merciless Tender desires ravaged by time, dispirited Yet in solitude a glimmer of hope, glinting Held wretched in a sad melody Time’s passing, meaningless A dream beheld in despair, sorrowful Ascending into dejection, melancholy The future pensively dreadful A spirit disconsolate, regretful Cherished memories withering, vanishing Their decaying images...

Conquest Of Love

I have been laid open, Exposed for all to see The scar tissue of my heart That forms your name. For only you could penetrate My impregnable defense, And rip from my soul The burning forever flame. Your wiles, your smiles, Your lustful kisses, your whispers That called my name were Cruelly dealt by your conspires. You owned my heart And conquered my spirit. My...

Recommended Read There Is No Love Without Pain

Love is life’s cruel mistress, And life’s crowning triumph. Love embitters the soul, yet conquers the heart. Love is never easy, And will die without toils. It is languor and sweat, the power and rejuvenation. Love brings this man to his knees, pushes his face into the dirt. It gives light into his darkness, and delivers joy to his world. Love grows in the wound...
