    I have just discovered Gary. He is very, very good. If he's not published he should be.

    I have read much of your work, sir.

    and I have enjoyed so much indeed,
    with special admiration, for the poems,
    A Face In The Crowd and I'm Dying In My Dreams.

    You have, in these pieces, and others that I read,
    a great capacity, to combine
    depth, brilliance and integrity.

    Thank you for the warmed pleasure, I was able to walk away with.

    Gary, I love your poems! they're dark, but it's the kind of dark that makes a person think about themself- it's all very good.

Best Poem of Gary Scott Gebert

A Silent Goodbye

you say your cold
yet I lie here next to you

you say you’re happy
even as tears run down your face

you whisper sweet sayings
but in a foreign language I don’t recognize

you giggle at my jokes
yet you shout at me through those eyes

you’ve held my hand
but only with those black velvet gloves

you’ve uttered your dreams
though I’m never a part of them

you tell me lies
but somehow they are the truth

you have let go
however there’s a string attached

you’ve done your part
but there are puzzle pieces missing

you ...

Read the full of A Silent Goodbye

Somebody Else

Every so often I wish
I was someone happy
At times I dream of another time
another place, another body

Whether it be a man or woman
it seems not to matter
Only that I was young again
with the vigor to face the day...and night
