    Darkness
    Riddles of the mind, riddles of the heart.Sympathy is blind, but i guess it's a start.
    Dreary windows of a soul tainted, left so impure.Is it possible for a demon to be sainted?I'm not really sure.
    Impulsive actions and agony seems to be the toll.Drenched and weary, destruction of my very soul.
    Discontent with all the masks that I use, to cover the real me.I'm pitiful in this darkness, yet I can't seem to flee.
    I can't escape this vile place, deep within.So I wait in this darkness, for my soul to feel somewhat complete again.

    Hello, my name is Dan. I live in a small blue collar town that is largely devoid of people who appreciate art. Therefore my only recourse is the internet. I have often visited poem hunter to find established and published poems or poets, but I recently discovered the member poetry section and was so moved by the submissions that I decided to join. I very much look forward to meeting other poets and poetry lovers and exploring ground level possibilities within the medium.

    Hello, my name is Barb, and I'm from Ireland. I've just recently started to write again, as I was busy with life and all the boring stuff that goes along with it lol. I've always loved literature, especially the old classics, Bronte, Austen, Wilde, Hemmingway etc. Look forward to reading everyone's posts, seems like a great site.

    I don't spend a lot of time here like a lot of people do. I sometimes feel a bit intimated by other poets and poems. Most poems are very deep and you can tell take a lot of contemplation. My poems are not at all deep or thought provoking and the poets are very very serious. Mine are short, short poems that are really quite shallow. At any rate, I have posted only a few because of this. By the way, I could still use some friends anyway.

      I know exactly what you mean about feeling intimidated by some of the talent on display here. I heard once that the smartest people surround themselves with people who are even smarter, and it is thro ... more

    I doubt this would even count as a poem. This poem is intended for the self immolations that Tibetans are committing to themselves in face of injustice and intolerance from the Chinese government. I can assure you nowhere in Tibetan culture are suicide or self immolation justified. The harming of one's own body corresponds to the same message as Christ's " The Body is God's temple" analogy. The Self Immolations the world is witnessing is nothing but acts of desperation and an outcome of years of desperation, oppression and cultural genocide.

    Here's my five lines:


    " There is light in this dark tunnel,
    but alas it's from the fire
    that my brothers and sisters have
    chosen to burn themselves with, so
    the rest of us can find our way."
