So ya wanna be a critic
Posted: 12/28/2005 10:43:15 PM
What leads a man to criticise
Yet be afraid to show his wares
Is it that his heart is filled with lies
And fears his soul to bare

To step out and record your thought
Would seem of brave to me
To taunt and ridicule from far
Would make him less than thee

I'll not agree with every verse
Our minds do not need meet
But I will respect a mans domain
A Gentle mans Decree

You kick ass Poet.

When you caress me with your words
they are like gentle tickles on my soul
tiny scratches and indelible marks
claiming a part of me no one else will ever own

I tremble from the anticipation of your words
anxiously awaiting the things you'll say
the knowledge that you'll share
and the love you'll passionately express

My mind is constantly challenged
to find my own words to express to you
my multitude of feelings, my thoughts,
my learnings and my yearnings

Often words are limiting & inadequate
to express how much you make me feel,
what you cause me to anticipate
and the immense love I already have for you

Some people fear words & other's use them as weapons
You use words to lure me down your path
to take me on a wonderful journey
to make precious memories we'll forever share

Your words are honest in their intent
allowing me to have complete trust
that they'll never wound me, never mislead me
and never cause me to question my belief in myself

Your words allow me to feel so much...
the hand of God in my life
the joy of a new and exciting relationship
and the loving caress of your gentle soul

As a publshed poet, lyricist, and writer who makes a six-figure income as Associate Publisher for a national magazine, here are my words of wisdom for would-be poets. First of all, don't ever write about sex, love, heartbreak or any other relationship oriented subject, or at least don't ever subject the general public to your drivel. Its all been said before and said far more eloquently than you ever could dream of. Second of all, read William Burroughs, all you can get your hands on. He is the one and only true poet who ever lived and you can never be him, but you can at least realize how much you suck compared to him. Third, just put down the pen and do something constructive with your time. Poetry is for broken down losers. Get a life suckers!

RE: pet lion

If Poetry is, as you say, "for broken down Losers," then I guess you're a broken down loser since you claim to be a published poet.

"Get a life sucker?" Guess you don't have much of one if all ya got to do is post on Poetry sites and give negative advice. Why are ya reading the stuff written here if no one but William Burroughs is worth reading. Stick to reading Mr. Burroughs & keep your "words of wisdom" about "drivel" that's written here to yourself.

Just cuz you write for a Sports Publication, that doesn't make you an expert on everything written. It would be preferable if you kept your negativity to yourself, but that is just my opinion.

Have a Happy New Year

With a tired hand
Feeling the sins
Of a thousand years
A breaking of my mind
Afloat in a sea of
Strange whispers
Gone now are the men
Of Old
New faces with
Old Crimes
Seep into our times
A man without money
A dog without sleep
A killer with
No salvation
Born of dust
Dying with false

Your pet lion(previous page) I just wanted to say that while Im sure were all very impressed with the fact you make a six figure yearly income, some of us write for the sheer pleasure of it.Some of the greatest artists and musicians in history died without a penny in their pockets.Does this make their work any less brilliant?Mozart died in poverty,so I guess his brilliant music is crap to you as well?You may see our posting in the poetry forums as a waste of time,but I simply dont care.I love writing as well as reading all of the amazing poems Ive seen posted in these forums.While you should be proud of yourself for making a six figure income at writing,I guess it just goes to show money cant buy heart and class.I also want to say thanks and happy New year to all of you who posted while I was away:)Awesome writes and its great to see each and every one of you here:)Hugs,kat

Hey folks! just wishing ya all a happy new year, don't stop the wonderful writes,... I'm still reading!
As regarding the fake lion,.... don't dignify the loser with a response! He's lying like crazy, for all we know he keeps his arms toned by switching hands in mid-stroke! Mind you that is quite an accomplishment on the back of a motorcycle. Guess we all have our acheivements!

A talker is not
so much as they talk,
but they just dont get
or know how to bet
on what they can say
or do to another
and walk and walk
all over ones day
some wonder at why so few balk
at the dumb shits talk!

LOLOLOL not bad for a two minuites impromtu! Reminds me of toastmasters! Anywho, later folks!

I remember when i was a kid
Around the age of 10
Life was fun
Life was easy
Nothin to it Mostly fun and games
And i didnt have to worry

I reached the age of 15
Closer to a man
But still a child
Life was getting harder
Because there was lots of Gangs
There was lots of violence
And with that violence
Came no fun and games
Just a bunch of dug up graves

Now im 22
and consider myself a man
glad to be alive and say who i am

Every night before i sleep
I close my eyes
And try not to wheep
Your love i once had
IS mine no more
Your love i once had
i need no more
You left my with a broken heart
And i felt ripped apart
But heart is no longer broken
Although much i thought
its been put back together
And is stronger much more
im strong man
and i wont let love tear me apart
Im finally out of the dark
And i see the light
All im waiting for is the right girl
To start off everything right

A Millionaire in Training
That’s what you want to be
But there’s no Love in Money
And that you’ll quickly see

Pursue the money all you want
Keep looking High and Low
Cuz if you concentrate on bucks
Your love will never grow

A Millionaire in Training
Has many things to learn
Love is something you must seek
True Friendship you must earn

Riches lie in Friends we meet
And Loved Ones we hold dear
So gather them like pennies
Their Love you'll never fear

If a Millionaire in Training
Is what you want to be
You’ll find no wealth in Money
Could your riches lie with me?

Here I am, come fill your cup
My Friendship knows no bounds
A Monarch’s wealth you’ll surely have
When Friendships are your crowns

I’m rich beyond all measure
Since relationships are my wealth
Riches won’t buy Loved Ones
And money won’t buy you health

Take the chance to know me
Find time to hold me close
You can earn the wealth I have
It may enrich us both

So if you want to grow in Love
My friendship I give freely
If you take a chance on Us
There’s nothing to fear really

Be a Zillionaire in Training
But find your wealth in Love
The gift of one true friendship
Is sent from up Above
