  • Hey guys. I know it’s been a long while... But I just wanted to tell you guys that I’m having my first child! Due Dec 28th!

Steel Beasts Whisper...

There's sweat
on my upper lip...
Wetness on my palms
cause the steel to slip.

Tighten my grip,
nows the time;
gone is the girl
who used to shine...

It gleams in the light,
black and silver,
like the tears that run,
down my cheeks, like rivers...

Finger the bits,
before putting one in.
Cool little stones,
filled with murder and sin...

My hand cocks it,
then runs across the barrel.
My mind begins to take it in
the almost-action and fills with terror.

I close my eyes,
to push away the fear...
Bring up the beasts mouth,
and let it whisper in my ear...

Wow I am, this is a write in which I can so relate as many times I had a vision of how and where I would get my beast and raise it. This is an awesome write as I hung to every word wondering if they would do it. Now that the whisper is up does that mean they did do it? omg, I can really feel for this person in your write. It is already in my fav's and only a talented poet as yourself could pull this one off. Not always an easy flow when the subject is self removal. You did it with flow and rhyme that I just think is truly brilliant especially the ending with bring up the beasts mouth, and let it whisper in my ear. Fantastic! Hugz

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
