no words can ever do justice to the damage done, i fall short of feelings and emotions to express....but strong disgust i do feel for those murderers ..... it all comes back, the return in any form, the realization also drops like the same bomb, they are paid for such disgusting acts, how can they sleep? it sure hurts and pain...we on safer shores can't even feel the depth of their pain....may allah grant those innocent souls the highest place in paradise...ameen

Excellent poem, New Shoes. "greater the feeling than of rays upon our skin traveling from the Sun" - this line in particular is superb and deserves to be known by all in poetry classes.
Such a read.🙌

Hi Big Sal, Love the idea of the three poetic styles in one poem. It does work very well. Complex, but it is well balanced and makes perfect sense.
You are an experimental poet, I have never read anything you have written which does not inspire. You are pushing onwards always striving to perfect your art.

I wrote a poem much like this called, "Smile for the Day", it's actually on my second anthology.
From this piece I can see the extent of your imagination, David, especially in regards to words. It is very difficult to keep one word or a set of words going throughout an entire poem, and equally as difficult to convey a meaning of some fathomable kind through them.
You accomplished both well.🙌

Beautiful poem full of gravitas and emotion.
Very well written, and I especially liked the line "The color people would dye to have" - very clever pun and usage.
Nicely done on this, I enjoyed reading it multiple times. I know others here will enjoy this as well.💐

Thanks for the wonderful comment. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I have read reports on how good swearing is for medical and psychological purposes. Amazing isn't it. Have a great day.

The legal battle over Agape leader Rocco Leo's millions has been going on for a number of years. His house was only auctioned this Feb. I thought the story was worth presenting. Maybe you're thinking of another cult all in the past?

Thanks for reading, Alan. Yes the entire poem is written in holorime, which means that each sentence rhymes completely with the next one or the previous one. Not many poets in history have accomplished this feat, that may be why you are not familiar with the idea. It's very fun to do.
Thanks, Jon. I wrote this yesterday after sifting through all my free poems waiting to post, and I realized none of them were good enough for it. So, I wrote this in 20 minutes and threw it on here. I know when I get you to comment, then I did something right!
Po, I'll be waiting!
New Shoes, thanks much man for stopping by and reading. Very glad you could find some enjoyment from my words. Come back until February 28, 2019 and you will be treated continuously to free holorime poetry just like this.
I appreciate all the comments and reading folks.🌷

Thanks for stopping by. Congrats on PoTW by the way, well deserved.
To be honest Peter I spent a little time on this one. I was out in a remote area enjoying a magnificent morning walking in the countryside. I stood on a hilltop overlooking a valley looking towards the opposite rise, the land was scarred and I could see the strata layers. It got me thinking about recovery and renewal, I was surrounded by beautiful ancient trees which had shed their leaves which were lying all around. A pretty moving spectacle to be honest Peter.

Love it David... and the conversation the piece has generated. There's quite a bit of research to back that those who swear have improved mental health, or that it can reduce sensations of pain to swear when injured. I'm always fascinated to think that, what many consider to be the worst swear word, is actually a euphemism for a vagina. Yet, it's not nearly so offensive to say cock or dick. It's interesting the power that we assign words and symbols. And great that you are writing words that challenge. 😀

Powerful Po. I'm ex- military and my husband still serves. We have witnessed first hand the devastation these things cause. As soldiers we take the risk, but it's such a cowardly thing to place them intentionally to maim children and civilians,and often animals too. Evil's an understatement.

Tom, this is wonderful. The first two lines particularly. Makes me think a sad story underlies this.

Hey Big Sal,
I'm glad you enjoyed it and found it thought-provoking. It's interesting to see peoples reaction. I will search out Ferris Taylor and read some of his stuff. You hit the nail on the head with people picking and choosing their words that they find ofensive. I think that's the great thing about poetry, It means different things to the reader.
We should do a podcast on it lol.

A sad scenario happening every where. media hides the truth and shows a totally different picture. the tables shall turn and media itself will bear the brunt of their wickedness. as its happening in my part of the world, media is not able to speak in support of themselves even, it is what they slowly paved their way into.
may Allah grant peace and jannah to the departed souls of Grenfell tower incident...ameen

Poemagraphic, Thanks for your kind comments on my work. It's great to see people taking an interest.
I wouldn't worry too much about seeing the UFO's. I've been seeing them all my life. Not little tiny spectacles or movements in the sky, I'm talking huge ships flanked by RAF jet fighters. The first time I saw one was in the sky over Wymondham. Both my kids saw it as well, it was low and shaped like a leaf. It must have been 50meters in length. When it realised we were watching, it shot North quicker than you could blink. The RAF fighter jets turned around and headed home once it disappeared.

Should read aloud well but one would not realise the first letters of course, (probably) - nice try though, some lines could scan better but maybe I'm not reading them right?

each soul shall taste death, whether anyone believes in God or not. the end is same for all. death will not be painful if we believe that one day we will all meet in the everlasting home.
we are actually pure souls blessed with a body, mind and heart....body will die, but soul shall never die....not even in hell, so better we strive to be in heaven.
i agree with u!!!

Yes; when someone dies suddenly you always have a hole in your life - you thought that you would see them again. Some incident comes along and you think " XX would have smiled at that...." and then there is this vacuum...Good Luck,
