What does grief feel like?
The world comes to an uncomfortable silence
nothing feels real
it's like a mask placed over your head-
a mind game
one you can't break out of
it's the lonely gazes
hoping to see you in my peripherals
it feels like part of...Read More

A nation divided, its fabric ripped to shreds
Like a clipper ship’s sails in a hurricane
Its rudder wrenched from its stern
Leaving its course to the mercy of its abuser
The fate of its crew dependent on its strength
And its ability to weather...Read More

God Saw A Prize
By Valerie D. Staton

My world a chasm of utter darkness
Dreariness enveloped me like a cloud
Bound by chains in an abandoned fortress
tormented body - a field freshly plowed

Accomplishments ignored; voice never heard
Wondered why on earth was I even...Read More

Over 50 years ago the draft almost took my brothers soul
A Vietnam Battle that almost took his life
On Sept 16th in the year of 1968
While out on patrol a sniper was lurking in a tree
Pop was the sound that he...Read More

Angel With No Wings
Ripped to shreds like paper
As I fall from the sky
Heaven has abandoned me
The Gods have forsaken me

And every time I fall, another part of me breaks
He always picks up the pieces and attempts to put them back together
But every shard...Read More

Our spirits can be affected by little changes in routine
Simple things like a happy dream or nightmares extreme
A monster bites your leg
Though you plead and beg
It's ripped to shreds but you're glued to the scene

No Voice, No Name
Bloody fetus ripped to shreds
Tissue mass scarlet red
Ancient slime, evolution stew
That was all I thought of you
Your life demands inconvience me
I'll kill you now to keep me free
My idol, my god, myself be praised
A sacrifice offering to hell I raise

The pain is so strong, so deep,
I can’t help but to think, and cry, and end up losing sleep.
In my dreams, my nightmares, my thoughts, running throughout my head,
I can’t get it out, it keeps coming back, to the point...Read More

a trouble or struggle; something that is hard to understand or surmount

I’ve felt hell’s fire and dealt with many circumstances I may confide-
But the most difficult thing I have to live with is being touched by suicide.

Just Another Day

Silent tears poured from her wounds,
Making tracks forever known, 
Rage and Pain echoed around her in silence,
Laughter at the thought of being alone, 

One drop of acid in an eye,
Pain multiplied tenfold by salt in the wound, 
Pounding heart...Read More

Premium Member Nine Lives
I struck out on my own around a year old
life was so full of fun, so many things with
which to play, a leaf scuttling by, a rustle
in the undergrowth. I was enthralled.

I stood on a road watching intently
a little mouse....Read More

Have courage and be kind
Her mother's wishes still fresh in her mind
For she had not a single bone of hate
Leading her courage and kindness to seal her fate

The days turned to months and those to years
For only time could calm...Read More

Garden Fate
It was ripped to shreds
turned over, and dumped
atop a chipped hole in the earth

The garden had been pretty
weedy, but pretty nevertheless

Like anything it took time to grow
a bleeding heart a couple bushes
the occasional tulip planting
a horrifying dog toy and bones

but...Read More

Premium Member NO FEAR
When your heart
is being torn asunder
and completely
being ripped to shreds;
when your spirit's 
being crushed 
by that heavy, 
"DO NOT COWER!!!"....
and...."DO NOT DREAD!!!"

When you're standing
with the devil,
and you're 
then look that devil 
right straight in his eyes-

Premium Member Foolish
I opened my heart
A heart without walls
Fragile & weak
Tired … damaged
I bared my soul
My past, my fears
My ghosts.
We shared
We laughed
We kissed
Together we danced,
Like children without cares
In the rain
Under the stars …. I was hypnotised
Your sensual mouth 
Words softly spoken 
Securely...Read More

Single Girl
Lonely street, dark and late
She ran so fast and hard
Waiting there, watching her
He dragged her in a yard

She tried to fight, scratched his eyes
Screaming cries through pain
Some one saw, some one heard
Yet no one never came

Torn to pieces, ripped to...Read More

The Dark Side of Love
The obsession born of forbidden desire,
Just as powerful as pure love, but more dangerous
Than any other force on earth.

Is that why you cannot keep away from me?
Does the power of your desire
Hold you prisoner against your own will?
And how am...Read More

 You touched my face and said goodbye, and looking back you met my eyes. A spark of what, regret perhaps? You left me wondering why.

Premium Member Depression A dear john letter I have moved on to better Moving on

There is no one reason, some remain depressed.
One could be, a fear to stand before – undressed,
looking at all their natural beauty – glory repressed.
Never to see, to feel, to know reality- their story supressed.
