Best James Knox Poems

To add things up I did not have to do much addition
I discovered what you really are
All I needed was a little intuition
There is no word to describe it
No true definition
It was made painfully obvious to me by your hideous rendition
A siren song that destroyed a man’s whole world sung by a deceptive musician
Is that who you really are?
Do you lack the human condition?
Or are you just carrying on some pathetic tradition?
Your heartlessness overwhelming by your lack of contrition

    Powerful poem, James. Reminds me of the great song "Heartless," best sung by Kris Allen but written by a rapper. People who make others feel this type of pain truly do "lack the human condition." Well penned! Love, Carolyn
