Hold me from a Distance

I revisit this realm where your actions cannot, Will not, Stifle my nascence Never enough, Never enough Forward, I tear away my onion skin Embattled by a loathing humanity I throw solaced emotions Upon rusted turnstiles Spinning round, Right round, Round, Right round But, you wouldn’t call me baby. Good. Because I was told That it is better to be hated for who I am, Then loved for who I am not So, hate me. HATE ME! HATE ME! Forever… …always. Lunge at me with your preconceived notions Of why I mean(t) the world to you Open your arms of Fort Knox and Tell me why I WILL NOT ASCEND Upon your generic wings Made of Atheist smiles Because, If you don’t believe in anything, Why Oh why, Would you believe in me? ©D.J.E. -11/19/2015

    Oh Drakezes! When you have a minute check out "Force Within" by Uriel Wisdom. Some major rhythm there. But many here won't catch it.

    It has been so long, and your presence and your (voice) have been missed greatly.....and this poem is another example of why so many of us have always felt the passion behind your words. You bring emotion and truth to everything you write....I see that hasn't changed!! Hope you are back again to stay awhile !! :)

    I've missed these writes....and you. I loved the bit about the emotions on the turnstiles....and what a climactic ending. Hugs

    It is better to be hated for who Iam /then tobe loved for who I am not. A significant statement..I so believe in this statement. To be who we are no matter what if they believe in us or not,and to never act whom.we are not just to feel loved. I so miss your poetry Drake..and reading this I know why. A fave.
