I am a child of the sixties who never got over it. I am an RN by profession, married for 29 yrs to Carl who is yin to my yang, proud mother of Rachel & Eric, and most importantly, I am a child of God, raised in the Catholic traditions. I tend to be passionate in both my likes and dislikes which is why I am so drawn to poetry. I cannot think of a better way to distill & express my feelings. more »

Best Poem of Deborah Downes

Where Evil Lives

Evil, like a virus, cannot survive outside the living
It does not dwell in the dark places of legend
but in the dark spaces of the mind.
And when the opportune moment arises
it rushes into the soul.

While it waits for that moment
the mind feeds it with obsessive thoughts and delusions
Until it has grown strong enough to leave this nourishing womb
and take stronghold in places where love dwells.

And if love has not been sustained
Evil exerts its dominance
as it takes permanent residence in the heart.
