    Possession

    The heat still lingers beside me a whisper of danger. Your deceit ran deeper than the wrinkle free face with which you smiled at me. Soft white sheets spread upon a king size bed, perfectly placed, an obsession. Hungry eyes that devour the weak, it was in your baby blues that I...

    MR. ALVERSON Mr. Alverson just seemed to slip

    away, in little pieces every day. it's hard to look upon, then one day he was gone. something was here still, but it wasn't Ray. Ray had tried to do it his own way; in many ways succeeded, I would say. some anger grew with age, and uncovered primal rage. an animal was buried...

    READERS I want to get close to the reader,

    to see if we're feeling the same. we're all such different people, but here we're all playing in the same game. I want to get close to the reader, to se if his story is the one that I claim. (Mar.12, 2015)

    I Wanted To Sing Only

    I stand in the middle with a stupid grimace around me my senior year. A "cheese", a flash, then its over, The school finally spits us free. I look on the picture what will happen to us? Now as our life begins. Where will the journey lead? Back in the 3rd Class we have dreamed...

    Don´T Give Up!!!! For Poetry ... Her Life Is Just Very Difficult!

    At night, you're lying in your bed alone and try to sleep, but you can not, because too many thoughts are in your head. Things that eat away you inside. Fears that do not let you go. You try to fight against them, but it seems to be a futile, hopeless struggle. You see no light...

    AN OLD LOVER'S ADVICE a love poem is just a

    device to melt a heart made out of ice. just a brief rhyme, and you'll find in no time, she wants to treat you real nice. how nice is a whole other thing. maybe you'll have to sing; but if her passion remains still then, the bitterest pill, you might have to go for the ring...

    Tonight I'm going to start deleting poems,

    rhymes and limericks I have posted that I now find pointless. I'll leave anything with hearts or responses for the time being, but there's just too much of it here for anyone to read, and too much that is really just taking up space. I'll also leave any that I really like, good...

    WHERE IT'S DRIPPING THE FAT I like staying up

    through the night; it's quieter, easier to write. sometimes it won't flow. the best thing's to let go. some days I try to do what's right. that's certainly not every day, though lately it has been that way. I'm still very manic, but I'm not feeling panic, when I probably should...

    She was depressed alone,

    gathering all the broken pieces of her soul, hoping that one day she could mend it all, to find her smile through her tears, and find the joy through her pain. But just like the fire she burns, when all against her she never turns. Challenges fuel her more, to reach depth...

    WAR CRIMINAL sometimes the going gets rough.

    I'm not gonna say it; that part's enough. if you don't turn, running, from the face of the cunning, then everything's gonna get tough! we can't afford to fight a war, especially when the PM can't say what for. Canada's economy will be ground down, even though it's already flat...
