    At your age, and even my own, it is rare to find the sense of knowledge and enlightenment you share through your poetry. You have a way with expressing the emotions so many feel and wish to express themselves.
    I work with InnerCircle Publishing. A company created solely for metaphysical writers. Please check out www.innercirclepublishing.com with your parents, my email is on the contact page if you are interested in more information.

    Thank you for your time and wisdom.

    Hi James...Just read your poem 'Soldiers, Murders or Heroes'...wow...you have definitely caught the full magnitude of what this is all about...and what has been going on for the lifetime of man. I would say you have much thought in the form of words to share...this is certainly one of them...your stuff is very good...

    I have a few new poems on this site...
    'A Friend'
    'Cabernet Sauvignon'
    'I Am The Deer'
    'Her Eyes Told Me'

    Keep up the writing, James...then...when you feel it's right...gather your stuff and put them in your book of poetry...don't forget...you are a storyteller...you need to tell people...

    Hi James...I just got your E mail. After reading it I went right to your poetry page on poemhunter. So far I have read just a few of your poems...I will definitely read them all. James...although I am no expert, from what I have read of your poetry I think you have a great gift in writing poetry. You convey very special thoughts that I think most of us have all gone through. I believe your poem about your grandfather is very special and the thought of giving your poem as tribute to your grandfather is precious. I lost my dad last February. I wish I had published my book of poetry before he died...but he died so suddenly.

    I look forward to reading future poetry from you, James. I hope one day you will publish your own book of poetry. You have a special gift...

Best Poem of James Lee Watts


Slit my throat,
Slit my arms,
Stab that knife in both of my palms,

Get me out I want to go,
The pain in my eyes never seems to show,
Mom and Dad just don’t see, what she really meant to me,
My love for her will always be,

As the blood pours away from my lifeless heart,
I think of her name and carve it deep, a work of art,
I lie there and numb the pain,
My love for her is driving me insane…

Read the full of Suicide

Watery Lane

The slow, thoughtful walk down to the river,
Reminds me of the last time and I get a shiver,
Standing there watching water flow by,
Finally I realise its like saying goodbye,

Its there one minute and gone with the blink of an eye,
Gone! Before you know it and all you can do is sigh,

As I sit on the eroded, cobbled wall watching time slip away,
