This is my first submission and indeed the first time anyone but one friend can see my poetry. If you like it by all means reply if you don't then please tell me why not and I'll do better next time.

Within the cavern of my chest,
My heart beats regular and strong,
No hope then of what is best,
Going to the place where I belong
I curse the healthy heart in my breast,

It is indeed a paradox,
An outlandish hope of despair,
My mind and spirit conspire to rock,
I smite myself and tear my hair,
With my desire to be in that box,

In the end I have my wish,
Granted by the suicidal sin,
All my thoughts away have washed,
In the fading of the din,
I look out around the church,

As I peer out I see a new light,
Shining before me in awesome glory,
I am filled again with the will to fight,
But as with all things in this story,
It's much too late, the box shut tight,

I sream and shout, I rant and yell,
But tis is it; it's time for hell

A powerful piece inside the heart and mind of despair. Well done. And welcome to Passions, DarkMoon.

Your meter isn't bad and your rhyme is great, DarkMoon. Welocome to Passion-just in time for the holidays, too! This piece is powerful and very depressing. Good job in expressing the despair.


 Nail to the mast her holy flag,
Set every threadbare sail-
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!

Welcome to Passions DarkMoon!!!
This piece was wonderful, the pain in it is very clearly expressed.  I loved it and can't wait to see more from you!

 If you love something, set it free, if it comes back to you, its meant to be...

I like your poetry, but pray these thoughts weren't your real personal wishes, as each of God's children has great worth to Him and purpose (including you).  I'll look forward to a new moon.

Well expressed feelings. Excellent rhyme
structure. Metre falters on occasion to
my ear. "smite" sounds a touch archaic
in an otherwise modern verse. I hope
you have exorcised your demons. Write on!
