Final Reprieve

The desperate man stands alone in the room. He gazes around at the dust and the gloom. The chair, it is old, and it creaks when he lifts. The noose he has tied, it constricts as he shifts. He rocks back and forth, and he moves to and fro, He kicks at the seat, and time starts to slow. Now the visions and voices cease to haunt me: I am that man, and I'm finally free.

    Danny, I think you have placed a scare into Lizzie. This has great descriptiveness and rhyming. I hope you are not contemplating suicide for real either.

    Danny I am devastated, I do not like this poem at all! It may be brilliant poetry but it is too real for my liking and I care about you tremendously and want you to seek help, because you are a precious person and the world will suffer without you! Dear Danny plese stop writing like this, and please please be okay. Your most caring friend Lizzie

    This simply... just great.. putting it on my favorites.. the rhyme and flow are perfect, and the subject is original if personally inspired- very inspiring for me as well.
