    This was my favorite line shown below. You've mastered your words into a beautiful art form. I enjoyed this read. Thank you.

    Do you know your face portrays
    The colours of your soul?
    It tells me at a single glance
    Of how you burned your furnace whole
    To stay the fire in our romance.

    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

It's Death Again

It's Death again - He's always there -
Watching, waiting - e'er the stare!
Every time I look behind
Or reach to pull the window blind,
I catch a glimpse of grubby hood -
A little clue to where he stood;
The glint of light that caught the scythe.
Perhaps if I could pay a tithe…
But O! no use, he'll never go.
The adamant phantom; don't you know
He will but wait until it's time
For me to hear His fateful chime? -
The toll that claims my destiny,
To Hail: 'You're next, it has to be…'

Read the full of It's Death Again

Death, Inevitable Death

Death, inevitable Death.
So now You come to show Your world,
Hence the blackened cloak – unfurled.
And peering down upon my form
– Bereft of pity – Your eyes of storm.

Death, inexorable Death.
‘When? ’ The only question out of Thee.
My dream retorts 'But ne’er for me! ’
