Calls back the Furies loosed

Once out.

Despair. I am like a windowless, empty room. Bleak and dark i steal hope and give anguish. Distress i am to you. Lonely desolation. Like a cloak you wear me with great sadness.

Death masks
the intrusive
images of past thoughts
being burned.  The soul's dark night dreams
lynched hearts.

earthly beauty revealed
celebration in paradise
apple difficult to resist
one bite never enough
mourn the dying

Rampant beneath
The surface, a body
Dressed in curves, hard edges, and sea

That is needed
By the masses, a gift,
Yet used for self gain carelessly 
A rift.

By those
Who pursue greed
Seeking gains and power
Without the checks and balance of

We see
The ugly truth
Over the globe, high bill
Of disasters and waste so crude
Oil Spills.

Deceitful, wicked
Weeping, cringing, loathing
Things children shouldn’t feel
Repulsive, severe
Struggling, bleeding, collapsing
My pain continues unheard
Abandoned, faulty
Hiding, listening, praying
Life is my suffering
Forbidden, fruitless
Reeling, clutching, grinning
The agony has ended

Eyes on me,
People watching,
In my direction?
Can't they look somewhere else?

Feeling uneasy,
Discomfart rises, too.
Afraid to mess up,
Afraid to fail.

Eyes are on me.
I feel pale.
I freeze.

I don't want
The attention.

She runs away
From both my loving arms

a loss of words on this morning of great deals
a mood so sound that it feels
my broken mind folding my impaired enralic
the ma is soring above the everlasting manilic
this making of this is quite modest
 2 perfect emotions quar into each other deist
3 morning birds  say i have won
4 moving trees stare at my path but can't trust not one
5 women cry from there hearts mend
6 mocking sticks with no end 
7 dozen roses refuse too bend
8 reigning magician's stand for what is heartless
9 transing meaningless people forget there purpose
10 watching mar dons spiting there fatherhood
11 working men salvage there manhood
12 dancing fool make there point
1 man sits here without his words 
where could THEY possibly be herd

The traditional Cinquain.
A poem, I'm sure, everyone can relate to.

Is like a knife
Opening up your heart
And causing it to hemorrhage

Can scar your soul
Leaving you defenseless
Against a world full of vicious

Is a sick joke
That is played upon you
And you never see it coming

Will drive you mad
And make you scream in pain
You will never trust anyone
