fools gold.

in a skyline full off essentials

on that hallowed ground we pave

with all the bitter sweat and tears

and all the heart we gave

in grave mistake for what we want

with no account for air

lie too late now in tortured winds

our wounded souls to bear…

the black plague

in serpentine struck stratosphere

i gasp in disbelief

at muddied shelves and sullied air

a dark and sullen thief

between small gasps of poisoned want

and broken shallow breath

lay i in bloodied mauled at shell

and hold cold hands with death

strung too far

no words

no space

no life

no tears

no breath

no hand

no heart

no more

.please.

no

me.

and heres to the uprite and peaceful.

so thank the lord, all’s right and well

as far as i can see and tell

with hand outstretched and heart contrite

my fellow poet has done whats right

and copied poem no longer stands

i nod in peace with outstretched hand…

for those of you that havnt read the previous post, there was a bit of an issue which has been rectified in an honorable admirable way. the offending poem removed and an acknowledgement written. heres a link to the referenced poem and site.

digruntled poet seeks honesty. (or- plagiarism sucks!)

someones gone and stole my art

theyve plagiarized my very heart,

with crooked gall they gathered in

my honest thoughts in shallow sin,

i pray they see whats just and right

i have no want to pick a fight,

till then i hold at strong front line

in firm defense of what is mine.

-and here goes something folks.

-and here is the shameless plagiarized version.

people have re-blogged my poems before. appropriately and with given credit.

i have no problem with that, it is actually incredibly flattering, especially in this wonderful community of poets i have come to love. this though, is really rather appalling.

im more the apology and hug type of gal. heres hoping this ends in that.

a simple recipe.

i miss you so much.
in so many ways.
i miss myself too.

here
or there..

in some ways,
only you
knew just
how
to find me.

thats all.
