Anyone like Poetry Writers?
I've been reading books by Chuck for years. I once met him and he was wonderful to talk too.
I am at home writing poetry but am also looking into writing a few short stories. So I hope this site can help me,
Thought I'd post an example of my poetry.
In those quickening hours
we sat, weighing the snare-drum rhythm
of frail hearts, gasping warmth from
wet cigarettes and old memories.
Our sergeant ran, checked his watch for lies,
and ignored the growing sobs disguised as coughs
- his whistle sounding heavy as a prayer.
Seconds fell like dominoes in the dark,
kisses on photographs and scented words
of love. A sweating hand, a whistle
burning arid lips. A banshee screams down
the line. In that void, time meets fate,
we are not men. Just shadows,
dancing on the rim of earth's hell.
Please allow me to introduce myself
Im a man of wealth and taste
Ive been around for a long, long year
Stole many a mans soul and faith
