    I AM
    Unjustly held captive
    I have unlimited potential
    Which will potentially thrust me
    To the pinnacle of perpetual greatness

    I AM
    Uncontrollable
    Unshakable
    Unbreakable
    Remarkably resilient

    I AM
    Superior to the inferior thoughts
    Of those inferior thinkers whom defined
    My superior stature as inferior

    I AM
    The mechanical mental mechanism
    Of…

    LONELY

    I watch the passage of the sands of time
    As the gold and red combine on fire in the falling sunset
    Yesterday I was content
    Alas my dreams now scatter unto dust
    I cling in desperation try to keep hold of the burnt out ashes
    When the time comes
    As the last grain falls through the hourglass
    I am resigned to my demise
    For I shall see her…

    Love is
    everything to a person who never known love
    of a good woman but we understand
    nature because we do anything to impress
    another person because it’s human nature
    rarely do we take notice of what we are
    doing

    UNCOMMON ABILITY

    Standing before you,
    like a shadow
    when the sun is at your back
    is this person who
    commands words,
    a drill sergeant of sorts
    barking out orders
    for verbs and adjectives,
    letting them do anything but
    float adrift on a sea of laughter
    and uncontrolled temperament.
    His directives spoken
    in similes of the sublime
    Stretching across…[Read more]

    Here are two acrostic poems…

    MERCEDES

    Modern marvel she
    Emits sparks of
    Regal colors which
    Calm heartache,
    Enticing bliss and beauty while
    Daring to extend love like
    Eternities which simply
    Shower the world with kindness!

    Diane,
    I forgot to respond to this and didn’t want you to think
    I took what you said for granted. Thank you for your
    Thoughts on my Sestina entry, it was the first time I’d
    Ever tackled such a form, being honest I’ve mostly avoided
    Such forms as I thought them too challenging… I realize
    I’ve been lazy and gotten comfortable with a free verse…[Read more]

    Diane,
    Here are my challenges, I really enjoy the challenge of these challenges and
    I find myself trying something new each time as all these forms are unexplored. Normally I write free verse… I chose the Acrostic, the Nonet and the 10 word challenges. For the 10 word challenge I picked haiku but since the 10 words equal 20 syllables it’s a…[Read more]

    This one was tricky for me but I enjoyed it!
    I also really liked the poem you wrote as a sample,
    You said it’s no Dylan Thomas but Dylan Thomas was
    No “Dylan Thomas” until he was given a chance to be “heard”…
    Here is my attempt at a Villanelle:

    “Freedom”
    It begins with hope, or maybe a dream…
    This is why the stars shine for us,
    The most…[Read more]

    Broken by Fire
    By Marshall Jones

    The fire has refined me into pure gold
    I see nothing close to pain from my past
    I used to be broken, but love has washed over.

    Walked the earth hidden, scarred from nightmares sold,
    shadows cast as darkness has made me crass.
    The fire has refined me into pure gold.

    Remnants of a life trashed by mold,
    I kept…[Read more]

    In a rush to love, yet waiting to die. Bury my passion right in front of my eyes

    In a rush to love, yet waiting to die
    Murder me sweet, satisfaction denied
    Bury my passion, right in front of my eyes
    Orgasmic expressions, suppressed and in vain
    Intense longing, being forced to hide
    In a rush to love, yet waiting to die
    Mental images,…[Read more]
