    Master Of The One

    The crisp but gentle breeze makes purchase of my tear streaked flesh and cools my face in the darkness of this sultry midnight hour. There is no laughter to beckon a wakened ear. My eyes have been sewn shut by these horrors once portrayed. Why does it come for me on this or any...

    Questions

    Why now do I learn To let my verses flow? Or were they deep inside to start Needing only to be stroked To spring to life? Could they have been trapped Within my heart Which had to burst to let them out? Or did they just awaken When again I fell in love? Need my heart be...

    First read it when I was 14,

    forever etched in my mind. Remember, you only live once, don't let the opportunity slip. Window-gazing, at one time or another In the course of travel, you must have startled at Some coign of true felicity. "Stay!" it beckoned. "Here live your life out!" If you were simple...

    Poem for dstarbuck: People are mean.

    You've dealt with it all. They've hurt you and desert you; But still you stand tall. The spite in their words It burns if you try to get close. But you don't complain And you make the most Of what this bitter world Decides to throw your way. You have so much strength To not...

    Not Waving but Drowning" by Stevie

    Smith Nobody heard him, the dead man,
But still he lay moaning:
I was much further out than you thought
And not waving but drowning. Poor chap, he always loved larking

It must have been too cold for him his heart gave way,
They said. Oh, no no no...
