My final defeat - fixed contest - poetry
She almost certainly can't bring to mind
But it did -
The day I found her agreed out cold on the alive room floor
Is mommy dead?
My gut said Yeah she's dead as a doornail
Thankfully my words said No No she's not dead
Little did I know I would admiration again and again
I despised that demon who called me nasty names
So confused, embarassed, shocked, and dazed
But I cultured early -
Never ask questions.
When I got older, I belief I could deal better
Nobody ever met the first boy I went on a date with
The bright face with the eternally joyful smile
Today at 30 years-old, I have perfected my enigmatic mask
Nobody ever gets even a indication
But everything close to accepting
I surrended for myself to a continual, gripping scramble
If I could just find.

Memoirs of a Wasteland's RimIt still was light when she paused at the wasteland's rim- Over, the rim rest like a sleeping brute, a inexpressive frame Adjacent to the blue where early stars hung like oil lamps Hanging from old beams and shade?the impassive frame Her foothold fixed the beams, as she had fallen onto it Alone, she watched the forenoon, climbing about her A hobo woman, apparent by life, and diagonal dreams With advent of hurt and molded muscle on her face Her assume engraved aligned with the made of wood frame, She tried to jump, and lost her balance, execution like a bird Now sipping the gloom in the ledge and traumatized hopes She yielded already the slow early payment of sunset Blood dripped, with her dying darkness And a cherry moon hurled a flame across The dark clouds, burning all through the sky The littered sky above her?Crossing the valley's floor her eye enthralled it Rocky images, main points Thrusting herself up audaciously from to the ledge The painted crack of dawn blushed over the rim Her brows and nose, face aligned with the sandstone stone Massive injuries was captivating form, Her figure hanging so apathetically crosswise the sun It was too great a task-to die alone?she wished now She had not jumped?a thousand feet below, yet to go. Too much for any woman in a lost world Out of the weak wood her mind had peace; She knew soon it would all be over-alas Mute and protesting aligned with life's uselessness A narrow path lay below her meager body Between death and attainment, a careless foot The rocks beneath her weakening, she plunged Plunged to her death, in the figurine hands of the valley Thinking of it, as she fell, assessment with a smiled, Saying, looking up-dead ahead of her echoes: 'Time is short?time is short?time is short!' When they found her, her face was bold of falling.

Mother's Day Poetry,I'm Sorry Mom!I'm sorry for the troubles And the doubts I brought you. I'm sorry for my mistakes, I didn't mean to make you blue.
Poems have assorted cores, or so I believe, and can only be structured well for a number of allegorical language-heart beats; like all counselors are not made for all clients, so all poems are not made for the same person, or purpose; when we read we all have our likes and dislikes; I do not automatically know what poetry is per se, but I do know what the enormity of poetry has, and great poetry is close to an illusion?it carries an echo I do believe-figurative yes, at best, and questionable yes, by far. Here are five poems I've a moment ago wrote, all with a another core, focus and style.

The Man Who Could Not Say Sorry For His Sins
Sorry would be a start.Though you cant take back your mistakes, and you cant find an answer time, you'd think there would be remorse, for such a self helping crime, to send others out to die, to pay the blood price you have decreed, when its absolutely bluster and posing, all about arrogance and greed, to confident a perceived niche in history, glowing down the years, is the amount of your ambition, is the puny limit of your fears, when those you have sent to die, believing implicitly in you, leave relatives at the back of who see, that nobody you said was true, there is no brain wave now for those, whose digit you dont count, they are yesterdays forgotten, though daily they still mount, no attention of resignation, no assurance to those left behind, just forward with the ego, fast accelerate from those times, as if nil ever happened, as if your lies are quite ok, as if now is what to focus on, and then was a further day, lost back in the mists of time, obscured by clouds half seen, not an injury to the living, not impeachable and obscene, you may want to move on now, and close the eyes to your past infamy, but you be supposed to be tried for treason, and confined for blasphemy.
