In this blackhole of my soul
  All things are consumed
         Doomed
To live in this padded room
         Never
   Again to see the moon
        Or stars
     Bared inside this
       Gated Jar
        Called
          The
         Soul


I'm a dying romantic and when i can no longer write i can no longer live -Jeremiah Johnson-

wow, Jeremiah, you have outdone yourself here again. What wonderful, oppressive imagery! I do love your poems!

But love came laughing by and
Cried "I enter everywhere!!!"

This one leaves me thinking.

Are our souls left to be in the dark, without light or passion?
If without light, we cannot see.
If without passion, could this be?
Are things of love, things of happiness
Doomed?
Your poem has left me confused.
Your poem has left me consumed.
In my own innocence
My soul has a more simple way.
To love and to hold
Yearning to live, yet another day

Love keeps the world smiling.

Jeremiah,

Nice dark writing.  Short and to the point.  I like it!!
