constricted by an ophidian i slither away, just to live is this where new life begins? is this where i shed my skin?
bitten by fangs of chagrin where to win is to never forgive hiss with this abyss within i'm living in a pit of sin
with my vision wearing thin venom is a gift to give i slip beneath the rocks again this is where i shed my skin
I am happy to say that a musical artist has featured my poem at the beginning of their video. I had pretty much given up on writing, and she breathed new life into me. Her name is Razakel and she is also a poet. She is breaking through, and considered by many as the queen of her genre. Watch the video and give us some love. She has a cool sound, and is better than most modern music. I now love this website. (i still hate most poetry) I never got much support at this site, so do not let that bring you down. They pay for popularity here and it is all an illusion. This will be ignored because poets are a jealous and envious bunch. I actually posted this last night, and lost followers, and was blocked by someone who i thought was a true friend. You don't need their approval. All you need is to show your own voice and the will to stand alone...then you will find true hearts. I hope this inspires you to keep writing and never ever compromise. Also, never take advice from anyone. lol
I wonder if you'll read my poetry one day, and reminisce upon all the good times we could have had. I know...it's pointless to hold a grudge. Life would be simpler if I just moved on without anger. However, I do confess, I want to know one last thing--did you ever understand what I meant?
just when i forgive you just when i put our past behind and remember how much you care and how much you try it hits like a slap to my face why didn't i see it coming? i yell and blubber and shriek vulgarities but in the end, it won't matter because this is you and it happens every ******* time
my grandfather was just accused of ****** one of my half-cousins. He has never been a good dad to my mother, so i wrote this from her perspective.
