    Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts! Have been in the hospital since May 2 when I had surgery. On May 22nd had another emergency surgery and ended up in
    ICU - was on life support - a very scary time. It's taken a while and I'm okay. Hopefully will be out of medical rehab in a few weeks. Miss you all. Thank you for your wonderful comments, I greatly appreciate them. You are all so thoughtful! Poets usually are though! !

    Didn't forget any of you, just couldn't get on computer at the hospital to keep in touch with everyone. When I get home for good will get back to reading all of your great and inspiring poetry. Can't wait! !

    They only let me out of rehab. on a 4 hour pass so I have to get back now. Am looking forward to hearing from you all. Take care and God Bless you.

    RoseAnn V. Shawiak, Poet

    Hi everyone.I am looking forward to sharing wonderful words, silly songs, pity poems, tall tales and interesting ideas.I am a very silly person.I do not like anything sad, so I guess I already lied.I do have an open mind, and I am well aware of sad things, I hear sad news, hear sad songs, and I see so many sad people.And I will listen with empathy, always. But I do not like sad.The poems I write are usually weird.I write poems about ordinary items or movements.I like to rhyme my words so they sound silly.Here is a sample. Sitting here in a chair it knows about my underwear.That's okay, but when I go.There's no one else that needs to know.

    Hello,

    My name is Joycelyn Mullins, everyone calls me Joy. I've been writing poetry since I was a child. Here is a sample:

    Guard Your Heart

    When it comes to matters of the heart
    Sometimes the pain has no limit
    and it just...
    lingers
    To know how another heart truly feels is like asking God " When will I die?" or " When will your Son return?"
    It's a mystery it seems, you'll never truly know
    Be careful what you put in your heart, it makes up who you are and what you'll become
    I beg of you, guard your heart like a newborn baby among wolves and like a dying animal in the prescence of vultures

    Hello, Hello!

    My name is Joey Jones. I am at best an armature poet. I recently started writing again after taking 20 years off from it. I have no accolades or degrees in literature just a simple poet and special education teacher. Since October of this year and the passing of a good friend I have spent most of me free time reading and writing poetry. I began posting and reading at a different website but it was riddled with bugs and didn't work half the time. I recently found poemhunter and think I may have found a new home. I may write about anything and everything here is one of my rhymed poems though, I don't always write rhymed it was a fun one to write. I often write in formed poetry or free verse. I am not perfect with my grammar and occasionally misspell a word. Feel free to message me with a critique or of you need something that I can help with let me know. My page is:

    I am
    I am the eclipse that makes you blind,
    a dark shadow cast upon your mind.
    As you try to escape into the light
    I'll serve as a reminder of the night

    I am the scent of your blooms decay
    a putrid aroma from your lost bouquet.
    As from my dreadful stench you bolt
    I'll engulf your being until you revolt

    I am the bitter you find in your sweet,
    an aftertaste from your spoiled meat.
    As you glutton on to much to chew,
    I'll feed you more of my wretched stew.

    I am the timbre of your screams,
    a sound echoed from your dreams.
    As you try to escape with your soul,
    I'll be the melody of your bell's toll.

    I am the agony that you must feel,
    the pain letting you know it was real.
    If you think this fiend you have met
    you have, for I am your life's regret
