    I Am (poem of Randomness)

    I am; I am me, I am not you, I dress as I wish because I am allowed too, I am weird, But I am caring, I am not into lies, Not even in the slightest, Not towards others, And definately not towards myself, I am single, But I am not desperate, I am smart, But I am not a...

    Bully

    Never again will I over explainall my actions to you.Your face turns sour, I gave you the powerto do what you’re going to do.When you got me scared, I wasn’t prepared,and so I pandered to you.You justified your torture,and scared me into silence. You punished me...

    Hate Writing It, Love What I Learned

    My undergraduate major was poetry writing, but I really chose the major simply because fiction (my original concentration) wasn't working out for me. I did manage to publish poetry in a few small journals, but my senior year I had a professor who was downright mean to me. We knew...

    A Gentle Breeze

    The Young Dreamer

    A Better Resurrection by Sylvia Plath I have

    no wit, I have no words, no tears; My heart within me like a stone Is numbed too much for hopes or fears; Look right, look left, I dwell alone; A lift mine eyes, but dimmed with grief No everlasting hills I see; My life is like the falling leaf; O Jesus, quicken me. This...

    One Of My Favorite Robert Frost Poems

    The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth. Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the...

    One Of My Faves

    Please Hear What I'm Not Saying Don't be fooled by me.Don't be fooled by the face I wearFor I wear a mask, a thousand masks,Masks that I'm afraid to take offAnd none of them is me.Pretending is an art that's second nature with me,but don't be fooled,for God's sake don't be fooled...

    I was telling a friend here

    that I've written mostly sad poems because the happy sounding ones always sound too cheesy to me. Then I quickly sliced off this bit of cheese..The birdies in the trees, The doggies with no fleas, They all have too much cheese, So stop now, if you please.
