Tonight

Tonight

Bars on the windows

Icicles on razor wire

So damned cold

Lights so bright

Wish I'd done it different

Wish I'd done it right.

I think of home

and close my eyes...

Lord.

Please be with them

Tonight.

Short, simple, to the point... A poem after my own heart. If a piece geets too lengthy , a reader may tire of it and never finsih, thus losing any message within the work itself. Excellent writing!

Love it. Just as the tag says it really is thought provoking and I love how he regrets his actions. ShadowStealer

The "he" was me. Wrote this in a cold dark prison cell.

Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
