    Might be a good idea Angie to let us see a screen shot of what was sent to you... then we can see exactly what kind of guy he is... esp in the context of the self righteous and abusive response he posted below....

    Perhaps it is best to let the nutcase with many names post its drivel, and attribute it to the various personas it maniacally occupies here...note its anger and hostility against nearly every sort of being that exists, here and elsewhere....the loony could be out killing people without this avenue upon which to vomit...
    ...........most unfortunate that it has taken over the forum but could be some lives are being saved by keeping it occupied here......though it probably shall move on to some other forum soon, where it can be creepy and annoy others as it carries on conversations with its selves.....this sort of nonsense is apparently a current cannot help but pity the silly thing....

    I'm 38 years old and you're twice my age. Why would I send an inappropriate poem to you?I apologized for nothing Relic! Why not buy yourself some manners?I mean, since Mommy and Daddy forgot to. You're too old to be doing this stuff. Why not just stop?

    if you are your own worst enemy,
    that's good news, you are equal
    to yourself. you can neither win
    or lose. Besides- if the rest
    of the world doesn't like you
    you win; the world being less
    than your worst enemy against
    whom you neither win or lose

    Life o' Meat ...
    and No Confection

    Shifting with juncture demands, i'm checking
    for a loose shoe lace, sometimes plodders trip
    walking those skimpy paths, and what's ...
    two-pence piety; and yet, i'm hardly convinced
    of the deficit due to an ignoble tie.
    A shoe can be old, old n' worn, true, but even
    a haggard sole can (still) effect walks ....

    So a perfectly formed decorum appears where?
    In this ... land o' stealth then steal???
    SiRs - justification's wing fly's a distance unknown,
    not even ... “goD” ... goes there!

    Like all, i'm subject to (those) shifts ...
    big-BULLY gods push with ease anemic souls
    of this more than, by now ...10,000-year-thrashing.
    Despised by both Heaven n' Hell, fate has eaten
    these rebuffed - their flesh n' minds like candy -
    there's naught but empty wrappers, now ....

    We need confections, after all that ... MEAT

      It's thrilling to read this guy (girl?) . The shoestrings causing tripping on 'those skinny paths'. Then moving to bully gods and candy wrappers (?) . It feels like we're floating through a dream and ... more

    will be glad to have editing/ addition / omission from great minds...
    in our time
    -of science-
    i saw the broken bonds
    -of rusting cultures,
    feelings and passion so subtle and delicate; once we had,
    but imperceptible now; in our time.
    like an eastern stoic
    i saw time has not stood still
    -and never be-
    and it washed
    the Art and creativity away,
    thus left
    philosophies to dogmas, and
    beauty to obscenity.
    In our time
    day starts at 7 p.m,
    -without sun-
    in darkness,
    And man like a careless child
    left by water alone,
    As the wises gone wild.

    Comme Sartre écrit dans son ouvrage L'existentialisme est un humanisme: «... l'homme tout d'abord existe, se rencontre, surgit dans le monde et se définit par la suite." Bien sûr, l'aspect plus positif, thérapeutique de cette est également implicite: Une personne peut choisir d'agir d'une manière différente, et d'être une bonne personne à la place d'une personne cruelle. Ici, il est également clair que depuis que les humains peuvent choisir d'être soit cruel ou bien, ils sont, en fait, aucune de ces choses essentiellement.

    From Sartre.... Existentialism

    Can't You see?(Blind)
    Written by Adam M. Snow

    Why are you blind?
    Can't you see,
    the lies you live
    is not of Me?
    I am love.
    I am truth.
    I died for you.
    I set you free.
    You mocked My name
    and cast Me out.
    You blame Me,
    for your downfall.
    I gave you words,
    a simple instruction,
    'How to live
    and live the right way.'
    Can't you see?
    The way you live,
    choosing sin over Me;
    it makes Me sad
    to watch you fall.
    I cannot help you,
    until you call.
    Call unto Me,
    I will grab your hand,
    and once again,
    I'll set you free.

      I think these words are not tour words to your, friend or loved one But The Words Of The Lord. Just give Glory to Him and Him Only Glory be to King Jesus.

    I reworked it.

    Home At Night

    He felt like a cold
    chicken leg or at
    least a hunk of bitten

    pizza. Coles cloud
    enveloped him.
    He wondered listlessly

    and the pantry could
    not be remembered.
    Certainly he wasn’t

    chips or an apple.
    A large belch arose
    and then he stumbled

    to one knee like a
    giraffe that’s been
    shot in the brain.

    And Frank just stood
    there with his beer.

    I think we better get that " post as a reply" rule cranked up again. Great rule.
