    My July 4th poem was deleted again by management. What idiots! I used asterisks in the f-word, but that wasn't good enough. So glad they're protecting the site from bad words but allowing herds of trolls to over-run it. I'm ready to leave this place!

      I have poems posted using @ in place of the U and C. Maybe it's personal

      No way Mr Jc... u shouldn't and that poem was lil bit disappointing, don't know why but i miss something, though it was beautifully constructed, (when i compare it to your other works)

    A prayer for the dying

    When the wind sighs

    and fills your sail

    and pulls your restless

    soul afloat

    To journey ‘cross

    The sea of night

    In dwindling life

    And muttered hope

    One final prayer

    Slips your mouth

    Unknown, unsaid

    You breathe it out

    One prayer for your journey

    The prayer for the dead

    Your final breath

    And all is said

    I was amazed. Love is immortal and it makes a lover immortal. A poem of love is immortal and it makes the poet immortal.

    Poem: (With It We Bury)


    The poles keep the city standing and
    the boys aren’t coming home—
    aren’t
    coming home to fill their boxes, aren’t
    coming home to tend the hedge;
    the

    boys aren’t coming home
    for much this time,
    aren’t
    coming home to tend the hedge.
    And our drug stores sell
    ribbons for

    too much this time, and
    our cars
    tree streets for our boys.
    Our drug stores sell
    ribbons, sell
    treats for the kids,

    and our cars
    tree the streets for our boys.
    And door to door men keep coming
    selling treats for the kids
    who can’t afford
    the cost of their leagues;

    door to door men are coming,
    coming home without boys,
    who can’t afford
    the cost of their league.
    And to the girls that are
    left

    coming home without
    boys,
    you should lay back
    and do it yourselves;
    all the girls we have left,
    straying still in their beds,

    lay back
    and do it yourselves.
    Until the weak pull the
    grasses straying still in their beds
    the boys who aren’t home
    won’t come.

    Until the weak pull the grasses,
    poles keep stand the city—
    the boys who aren’t home
    won’t come,
    aren’t coming
    home to fill their boxes.

    Been working 24/7 for the past 2.5 years. Actually had some free time on the 4th of July. So I thought I'd post a few past works. I do miss this place for some strange reason.
