    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


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.
