    • death lives 


      the air was blowin', 
      'slips through my veins saying that 
      I'm just nobody. 

      Never was alone 
      'fore lie revealed the truth 
      life's but a cold wind. 

      I've learned the laughter 
      they created tears to fall 
      burst of faith was born. 

      Earth's a shattered mess 
      of greed, pain and shallowness
      world of foolishness. 

      Nature of man's deeds 
      beneath a darkened dungeon 
      hanging by a thread. 

      Dark heart still hardened 
      when coins slap a wishing well 
      then a curse was found. 

      Let this bad dream end 
      though my heart now stops to beat 
      'coz death takes rebirth.

I like these; it's like street haiku with the slang contractions thrown in there. I'm guessing that each of the haiku here are stand-alone poems, and that 'Death Lives' is like the overarching theme that loosely connects them? That's what I was thinking, because obviously haiku are only 3 lines long, and as a single poem, this wouldn't hold together well. If I'm right about that, then I think this is a very cool way to organize haiku and make them more fun to read by grouping several together. Nice job

I think this is one of your best in my opinion and since I have three read requests to go this is my favourite out of the ones I have read. You are great with your poetic images and you should try to expand more with different topics in my opinion, because I think you are capable of more. :) You should write more fiction, I think it would turn out good. Great job! :)
