Response To Edgar Allen Poe's Alone

Poem By Jasmine Williams

On my darkest day in May
Our paths converged a dissimilar way
I too, enamored by the demon in view
He had taken from me what he took from you
I walked amongst the world in shame
Consumed by jealousy, a child’s game
Beaten by life’s hard hand in vain
I held my head and stifled my pain
Nightmares plague my vision still
Opened wounds have ceased to heal
I long for the day I cannot feel
Captivated by unsavory appeals
Until we met, that fortunate day
An iceberg of pain melted away
It was there, I felt a tremor of trust
Surrounded by the demons of dusk
I knew I would find a way through
Content in the darkness, content with you

I'm here here here- - - - -
I knew I would find a way through Content in the darkness, content with you. The poem reflects the same image but with contented end as Alone. Great imagination.10+++

It stole all my gifts
My soul, my passion, my love
Now everything is lower than the sea
So lower than should be, it is lower than me

Eleven Fifty Six (6/30/20)

The bells of freedom are ringing.
If I could touch that sacred brass,
Just beyond my desperate grasp.
I see,freedom seized with bravery,

This Is My Mother.

She smelled of cigarettes
She looked like hell with legs
Her voice was laced with insolence
Always grating to my head

Death To Your Pride

Corrupt are your morals
Death to your pride
Shrouded in darkness,
Robbed of light

A Baby Was Born

A baby was born,
To a mother stunted before her rise,
They clipped her wings before she could fly.
To a father lost in a world of lies.
