Member Poetry, Submissions and criticism
I don't know about anyone else, but I am an avid reader and writer of poetry. I have to say in all honesty, I was awakened this morning by a poem in my head, that wouldn't get out of my head unless i wrote it down.
So if anyone else has similar Interests, please join me here.
I Guess I'll start with my own. It sounds bad but really is not so bad.... Thoughts?
I'm calling this 'On the edge of nothingness'
(With apologies to Trent Reznor)
I hurt myself today
to know that i'm still real
the pain focuses me
To see whom i really am
The pain becomes cathartic
But not without the feeling
Of knowing who I am.
On the edge of nothingness
We untimately understand
The meaning of it all
Then we start to heal
The pain is nothing really
a catalyst for change.
So while we look for joy in life
We also seek the hurt.
