I have a secret place to go whenever I feel the need.  It is a place that is visceral,
dark, and so unforgiving that the joy of being there sometimes makes me want  to stay
longer than a moment.  There, I am like a beast uncaged, running free, and devouring all
that I see.  When the beast runs, there is no stopping it.  There is no leash or muzzle to
keep it at bay.  There is no place that it  cannot go, and its desire for retribution is
like an insatiable hunger in its belly.  The beast there is ever hungry.  "Where is this
place?" you may wonder.  I always try to remember to take the key with me.  For it is the
barren, lonely, and impassable door you cannot is the Id within me.

    The darkness we hold inside ourselves can be the most frightening place to visit. Keep that key handy so you can step out of yourself, your "ID," when you need to feel happiness again. I hope 2011 will be a wonderful year for you, my friend. Love, Carolyn

    Hi Dan, I'm not too familiar with Prose Poetry and not so much with "dark" poetry but this seems to be good. Very creative too. Wishing you the best for Catie's contest. Happy New Year to you and yours! Love, Audrey
