Blackout

I have all but lost my faith, 
And I am certain I never know 
My Mind is the only safe escape-
As the Woes of Life doth take their toll
Lo, this World is all but fair!
(But 'tis only a brief, short-lived stay) 
Oh, my Soul of sweet despair-
May the Hands of Death carry me away...

    Haven't seen you in awhile I wish you'd write something for me? OR a new collage? Light & Love

    I hope to get back to my usual TPS activity and participation very soon, Debbie. I sincerely appreciate the sentiment. My life has been turned upside down the past few weeks and I will be back for sure on Friday (I hope). Thanks for checking in on me :)

    I imagine you being low in spirit when you penned this one. Liven up my friend, you're a great MAN. FRIEND,JM

    Thanks, JM. It's an older piece, but expresses a sentiment that can be found in abundance throughout my work. I appreciate the review :)

    Chan, This is terribly sad but terribly good at the same time. Your rhymeing has such a smooth flow, I love it. It's my hope that Death will "stay it's gnarly grip" so you can write more poems. :) John
