Thank You Readers!
The houses are haunted
by dark shades of the soul
USA - Mon Aug 5 22:54:24 2002
with strings of fear pulling each side.
Birmingham, United Kingdom - Tue Aug 6 06:24:40 2002
A hollow, black mist encircles
jackson, ms USA - Sun Aug 11 10:20:37 2002
as the enchanted hour of disillusionment descends.
Colombia, South America - Wed Aug 28 20:00:22 2002
A forgotten tomahawk of hope
Baia Mare, Romania - Thu Aug 29 13:51:25 2002
is this house, dark and cold. Yes a tomahawk so it was told
thousand oaks, ca USA - Mon Sep 2 23:18:41 2002
in language so old its words croaked barely a whisper
Don Edward Morris
Santa Rosa, CA USA - Thu Sep 5 10:20:39 2002
from the cobwebs of unseen corners.
Greeley, CO USA - Fri Sep 20 06:32:39 2002
Cluttered news unwanted by skinny backs
West Valley City, UT USA - Sat Sep 28 13:05:34 2002
and auras of perfidious sapor linger
belfast,ireland, USA - Fri Oct 4 06:57:19 2002
there in that evil smile.
Whittier, CA USA - Sun Oct 13 01:06:41 2002
Does this playful evil reign supreme
Buffalo, NY USA - Tue Oct 15 17:17:10 2002
or is the enchanted hour almost at an end?
Arlington, WA USA - Sun Oct 20 08:06:54 2002
The time seems to have stopped
Kalpakkam, Chennai, TN India - Sun Oct 20 11:26:58 2002
a minute before the hour
appleton, WI USA - Thu Oct 31 04:00:14 2002
and so the reflected image of my soul on the clockface fades with the bells
Perth, WA Australia - Wed Nov 6 00:24:30 2002
of the door pulled open by the vacuum of the wind.
dallas, TX USA - Fri Nov 8 13:07:43 2002
I know at the tenth hour the yearning of my past dissillusionment will come to an end.
Huntsville, Al USA - Fri Nov 8 21:24:50 2002
Heart pound sounds belie my quiet demeanor as I await
Brandon, Fla USA - Thu Nov 14 20:31:35 2002
the tick of the crawling hand to liberate me
from the emptiness that divides me
USA - Tue Dec 10 04:49:17 2002
and makes me what I can't help but hate, yet long for just the same
St. Louis, MO USA - Mon Dec 16 06:41:37 2002
release. The owl at window brings only loss, loss, and you, my friend,
Preston, ID USA - Mon Dec 16 19:20:17 2002
a ghastly screech, a flutter of wings freeze me in my pain.
Kolkata, West Bengal India - Sat Dec 21 09:33:22 2002
And here I thought I could look upon the face of death and smile.
Alexandria, VA USA - Mon Dec 30 20:29:16 2002
I thought, indeed, I could at last be free
Fairfax, VA USA - Thu Jan 2 12:55:56 2003
but mortal pain reflected the tender look you
Mattapoisett, MA USA - Fri Jan 3 05:52:04 2003
sent to me -- the tomahawk presented in your pale hand
WA USA - Fri Jan 3 17:57:50 2003
glowing like a fire in your bloody hand.
USA - Tue Jan 21 17:29:15 2003
Silly, silly you, with life so precious, awaiting
Rose. S. Smith
Montreal, P.Q. Canada - Wed Jan 22 05:55:53 2003
the duplistic hand to strike 10 o'clock.
Muskegon, MI USA - Wed Jan 29 16:00:39 2003
Oh, the waiting, the excruciating waiting,
Morrinsville, New Zealand - Thu Jan 30 10:30:52 2003
minutes imperceptibly merge to become measureless millenia.
Girvan, Scotland - Mon Feb 3 03:43:28 2003
That final minute still divides by half and half again
USA - Mon Feb 3 09:18:47 2003
and our bones crumble under the weight of the moment.
baltimore, md USA - Wed Feb 12 13:46:31 2003
At midnight I know the tomohawk will kill
Juneau, AK USA - Mon Feb 17 16:20:43 2003
and Charon beckons with saprogenic smile,
in the middle, USA - Thu Feb 20 18:45:40 2003
one word is spoken to sharpen the hatchet's edge and it is
Buffalo, NY USA - Mon Feb 24 09:02:23 2003
used to slay this night, such a quiet night in this hollow dwelling of
USA - Sun Mar 23 18:21:47 2003
USA - Wed Mar 26 10:30:57 2003
A truculent spirit awaits to be transformed.
Minneapolis, MN. USA - Wed Mar 26 16:03:33 2003
The tomahawk edge keens in sharply, leaning in to sever the thread of unanticipated time,
USA - Wed Apr 9 11:47:19 2003
its bitter blow transforms mortal flesh into imortality, as I cease to exist.
Saginaw, TX USA - Fri Apr 11 22:06:30 2003
And then, the minute hand moves, and I begin again
USA - Sat Apr 12 13:52:50 2003
starting in this unruly world, we shall meet again.
USA - Fri May 16 15:52:39 2003
Once again, nothing...
toronto, on canada - Sun Jun 8 13:37:17 2003
once again, something...
boston, ma USA - Tue Jun 10 21:07:29 2003
and again, disillusionment
USA - Fri Jun 13 10:57:24 2003
pulls me closer to a soul not mine that waits wihtout patience, waits without fear, waits without anticipation, waits
Jacksonville, FL USA - Thu Jun 19 07:28:51 2003
and then stops.
France - Fri Jun 20 03:23:15 2003
