(Hello, my sweet friend!) Speaks in unknown tongues Nevertheless it will consume Ask for food, A sweet drink The hunger and thirst are real It's pitchfork aims at my free will Seeking and freaking through my pages It's been ages since the impression was gone Sloppy wording crawl under my hide Notification triggers my finger and thumb Bang! The evil one exists With a second-hand letter It believes, it should never be forgotten Numb as Novocaine can be I watch and interpret the riddles in every line Living and breathing art, I'm echoing the same nightmare How dare, the devil seeks to be fed! Screaming and remembering --the demons that linger in its head Too much to read, I have major troubles with your disease Lunacy of the universe Open Obituary, you are a curse Like a transparent note from a fatal fax machine It's a calling, unbearable to describe Take from me, after I am deceased Like fire, it burns, cancer in every star Lies to Greets to My eye twitch My soul hurts I'm not feeling well Take care, Leave me the HEll alone (-*-)

Well penned piece; eerie but, it has some great imagery here, as well. I especially love these lines: "I'm echoing the same nightmare How dare, the devil seeks to be fed! Screaming and remembering --the demons that linger in its head Too much to read, "

A very intriguing poem, Skat. The devil is a formidable adversary ... trash the letter. Very emotive and passionate. Love your work. Much love to you.

I'm imperfect in my critique and lean in the negative. I've surveyed your list and am overwhelmed by the many you've composed, impressive! I'm sure like most any aspiring scribes, suggestive comment can be made on every verse or line, to add too or detract from. I would suggest further addendum, for instance; 2nd line, it will consume, add description like; the dry parched earth in a torrential cloudburst. Not to be too overwhelmingly descriptive but just here and there. Good piece, like it!

Such an intricately written piece, as you explain the layers of entrenchment. Not always easy for me to write with such intensity, but I think it's second nature for you. Any who...quite well written!

As always Skat, something different from your pen and once more it is excellent. Your images are so real they stay within the mind.Your work always has that Skat touch as i call it. Something that is akin to you alone. Indeed it is a pleasure and honour to read your poetry. There is always something different to find. Keep singing Skat, i shall keep listening....Vladislav.

I can really visualize it, very good. Yes, to me it's crazy to think that what is real is only that which is tangible. I think that's one of the reasons I'm now divorced after 13 years. She couldn't handle some of the things I saw and spoke of...oh well..nice write
