Passions howling winds
steal my innocence
forcing tears of hate
from my eyes

imbued with spirit foul
I crouch unseen
in the shadows of
a crowd gone wild

Clutching my tender heart
protecting from the
venom flying
sorrows tears fall

Lies buzz around me
like wasps of deceit
stinging fiery jabs
scarring poet’s soul

Crying out for a voice
whispering in the dark
pleading with you
why..why..why….

Where there is faith,
there is love.
Where there is love,
there is peace.
Where there is peace,
there is GOD.
Where there is GOD,
there is no need.

This is excellent, PdV! I can feel the pain in your words. Well done.

Poet deVine-
Well said, my friend.

And no voice heard quieter than mine ...
why? why? why?

Ms. deVine, you've definitely captured how I feel.  Deeply sorrowful work.  This one hit me very hard.

Like a gust of wind, ne'er trapped in a snare,
Like a lotus blossom, ne'er sprinkled by water,

some are poets because they have the ability to mechanically write well... others because they can express their inner souls...
some are exceptional poets because they can show us their inner beings in such a beautiful style of writing...  cant be an outstanding poet unless you can do both...

Poet, words that have touched the heart....

 If with pen in hand I've made you think
I've not wasted one drop of ink

Thank you all...I've felt a sadness lately about the tone here....I know that there will always be problems in life...that we will have to deal with the occasional houligan....that we can't please everyone.. that this world is not perfect...I also know that we draw our strength from each other..

Let these winds blow away any pain, frustration, anger, sorrow, jealousy or indifference....we are poets with passion in our soul...let it shine!

Well, PdV - for me, the best thing about storms is seeing the sun come out once they've passed...

A true poet seems to be
allways
searching for answers
allways
searching for knowledge
allways
ready to share
their hearts and souls
but some times
the perfect answers come too late
and by then
do we still care enough
to give them

When you're right, you're right.  Strong poem, stronger message.  Point well taken, deVine.  Always admire your work.

Ms deVine - sadness in here?  Really?  I've always thought of this place as a really neat, light-hearted place.  Oh sure, the women in here are gonna write about sadness and crying and broken hearts and stuff like that; but, that's just par for the course with women, yanno.  Now take it from me, if women would simply act like men, everybody would always be happy!  *knowing nod*

Poet,
I too can relate to this.
I have sat back and read all the replies on the poem "Evil One" and I don`t see how so many people can be so quick to wanna kill,hurt and say so much bad about one person.
I stopped replying to all the neg. comments that were made to me.
Yet I can see that alot of people in here have alot more anger inside them then I do.
I didn`t mean to upset so many people.
Anyway,Nice Job.

                   PEACE



MARGE:TO YOU AND SOME OTHER`S,
IM SORRY FOR BEING SUCH A JERK.
I DON`T EXPECT TO BE FORGIVEN BUT IT DOES MAKE ME FEEL BETTER KNOWING THAT I`VE APOLOGIZED.

NOW TO WHOEVER,YOU CAN BLOCK THIS NAME LIKE YOU DID ALL THE OTHER`S,BECAUSE IM DONE HERE IN PASSION.

????   Loved your poem Devine, you're a great poet, though I'm a little confused right now, after this last reply. Hmm, serves me right not showing up in open daily. ; )

Most DeVine One: An interesting read with heavy overtones... and then I read some of the R.P.s... Hmmmmm.... I've been out sick for the past week and it seems in that time some serious drek went down in PIP. Can't say I'm sorry I missed it, but I'm feeling a little out of the loop... but then again, I've always been a little left of center.  All the same, still a good read and still a great place to be. Peace m'lady.

Sharon, a beautiful, giving heart like yours should never feel the pall of strife's sadness fall over it. Smile m'friend, for that makes all the "bad guys" go away!

Disclosing the tender palms of her hands
gently she feels rough with the smooth
a soul that walks through grains of sand
open to the sunshine hoping it will soothe


 Memories give you the power to collect roses in the winter...

A wonderful read. *L* Sy
