In the glowing embers, of an evening fire There dances the last remnants, of my desire A melancholy, is stirred by an evening breeze As my lips quivered, I knelt on bended knees A lonesome howl, is carried upon the breeze To fan the fire within, flames were sent to tease As past thought and feelings enveloped my soul The emptiness inside raged, spirit out of control I asked him for forgiveness of my imperfect soul Even as I tried climbing out of this dark, black hole The stench of burning flesh, I carry everywhere Since I fell from your grace, into this pit of despair Let the fire of life dwindle and as the night air cools I feel it's warmth leave my body and forms into pools All I pray is that pain and sadness felt is left behind Is this really a sane act or thoughts of an insane mind

I am concerned to read this disturbing piece Tom, why ever would you be writing such things? I think that 'civilisation' is on that path however..' as for yourself you have much better stuff inside you than this..! And I am rebuking and binding any evil around you in Jesus name God bless.. Joe..)

No fear Joe, I was trying to put myself into the eyes of innocents plunged into conflict by bombings, in other countries where there is no Freedom, for a glimpse of what they may be feeling. God Bless the all

A very real and touching poem you have penned here. This is a topic so many people choose-- sad reflection of the loneliness inside. Most poets are deep like that. Always remember-- each of us was made for a unique purpose to fulfill-- God's promise to us.
