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

    Hi Joey :) this was a wonderful poem! I enjoyed reading it :) all I say is perhaps you adjust some of the lines a little so they have more rhythm, and it will be pure perfection: D

      Thank you Wu. I am always revisiting and tweaking so maybe soon I'll come back to this one. Thank so much for reading it and commenting.
