"These are the times that try men's souls." - Thomas Paine.

"You don't understand! I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I could've been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am." - On the Water Front

"This is my place of failure."

Lightning Strikes
Raindrops are piercing through my brain
I loved this weather, when we were together
But today it brings nothing but pain

Her arms are around me
Around my neck.
Her hugs are affectionate
Yet dripping with poison.

But I still fall in her arms
Despite my unconscious alarms
I’m entranced by her scent
Quite out of my mind

My eyes are wide open
But clearly shut

She cuts me to pieces
I fall on the floor
My friends do their best to try and restore

But I’m still crawling back...

Begging for more.

This is what I would consider my first real poem. The moment where I realized I could express myself through poetry. I doubt anyone has noticed but my submissions occur in no particular order.

Theres so many that I can't pick sorry

It's very deep in emotion and love can do that trick our minds but fill our hearts with false joy

This is great! The rhyming is pretty good...although it can be a bit distracting... Anyways, its great, and some of the lines are just GOLDEN!

I was born an original, I'm not going to die a copy.

Kinda sounds like me & my ex, he constanly broke my heart, fed lies to me, i was oblivious to teh fact that he never loved me but yet I kept falling for his lies and kept going back to him. Your poetry is easy to relate too. I like that =)

The only people who don't get anywhere are the people who don't dream of a better place for themselves...

Sounds like a very poisonous relationship going on here....
