    I just love your writing, beautifully written and inspiring! The depth I read in these poems makes me want to pick up a pen and fly away. Please put your poetry in a book, I swear I would buy it.

    Keep it up sir, you are incredible!

Best Poem of Mark R Slaughter

An Act Of Poetry

Ruin is what we need -
Despair is what we feed
Upon in poetry

A shock resets the nerves -
Helps remould the curves
Of written art

Catharsis helps portray -
Acting out a play
On expurgation

Tears or hidden fears
Release the bottled years
To ink a page:

The pen be our salvation.

Your intellect humbles with shattering blow!
Omnipotent, you are at one with the world.
There's no need to seek, as you already know:
Explained, reconciled, all so neatly unfurled.

Those complex equations are pliable toys,
And yours just to play with and loosen your mind.
Hypotheses and theories are also your boys -
In your world, together, all cosily enshrined.
