Aftermath

Poem By Michael Fischer

Aftershocks of mental anguish
submerge you into submission.
Turn yourself in as the culprit,
without your friends’ admonitions.

You wish you had the moment back
when faced with his proposition.
You wish your mind wasn’t impaired
when in his physical prison.

His reign of terror is the cause
of untreated combat fatigue.
You counter it with repression,
but despite efforts, you still bleed!

A very good poem with many different ways you could take it. Great job, Micheal.
You wish your judgment wasn’t impaired when you were in his physical prison. Excellent write, very deep and well worded, you did very good on this one, keep up the good work

We're thrown hard into a world
that we know nothing about.
We're born small, weak, and speechless,
troubled with our thoughts of doubt!

It awakens just prior to her slumber,
takes a hatchet to her insides,
and leaves her vulnerable in the night!

A Hidden Treasure!

Behind those thick-rimmed glasses
stands a woman with much potential.
She's bright, humorous, and beautiful;
But she doesn't realize it.

Your heart is my sun;
It brightens every day

A Little Treasure Hunt

I clean my room in search
of fragments of old poetry.
I survey every note pad,
every sheet of scrap paper,

I’ll Meet You At Heaven’s Gate

I dreamt all day about you babe;
Which is no different, from other days.
I miss you dearly sweetheart;
You’ll always have a home in my heart.
