A Poem by TerryDarcy-Ryan akaSheerTerror

" one for the devil and three for me "


Dressed to kill down to the heels

Locked and loaded with sites on infamy

shots fired in the vicinity of destiny

todays game, is change my name

unleashed and tailor fit for your Identity

nice suit but I still resent all the AkA’s

Shattered I am and fractured I remain

rage, scars and every breathe in between

I escaped a dying breed

Big brother watches over me but it ain't free

each piece taken, traded and destroyed

equals one for the devil and three for me

I got mad skills for the long haul

ready for the free fall

looking out for number one

my disguise is the fade into everyday

look over your shoulder

Subtlety is what you see not me

Terry D’Arcy-Ryan  aka  Sheer Terror

I liked the photos and I loved the words. Direct, cold and honest. I did like the smoking bat-woman. Thank you my friend for sharing the amazing poetry.

I enjoyed this one and you are welcome.
This was, wow. It is masterfully worded, with an awesome blend of defiance and pain and pressure, and it paints the picture perfectly. Honestly, the four words that I can't stop thinking of after this are 'A Pretty Little Rebel'.

A continuation of personal themes explored in the last few poems i have read of yours....this time dealing with the quest for anonymity; hiding the true self behind a masked veil in this world that is more often imitating Orwell's version; where Big Brother peers into every corner of our lives and the sanctity of self and personal freedom of opinion is violated and scrutinised.

Again, your piece has a tone of defiance, strongly worded with a rebellious streak throughout.

You are slowly peeling back the veil and revealing an interesting persona. Nicely written.

we can't hide from who we are, try as we may. people see us in their own ways. we put on masks from time to time. can only be ourselves for good or bad. sometimes we are not ourselves. you have a wonderful knack for words and imagery.
