My last stand will be in New York city.

A Poem by Coyote Poetry
"

Two brother die by own hands. I dream of a place to find peace.

"
      






















My last stand will be in New York City.

 
I want to go to New York City.
Sit on a park bench where Leonard Cohen sat with Joplin.
Whispering stories of things to come.
I wonder what he did to remember her in  her death?
 
My soul has become so dirty.
I feel I would fall into the old city.
Become like her.
Full of secrets and hidden desires.
 
The woman are colder.
Warmer if they decide to allow you in to see.
Their permanent scars and tarnish view on love.
Leave me wishing  to know all their mysteries and feel their hunger.
 
They dress in darkness.
I like my woman to wear black.
It make me aroused.
 
I want to roam the streets.
Be with the people at the lowest point in life.
I want to listen to their stories.
I don't pity them.
I will tell  them my stories.
 
I would sit in dark bars.
listen to the night people.
Perhaps dance in the twisted dance of passion and lust. .
 
 
I will sit on a bench.
My words would become complete.
I would flow with the city.
I would become the voice of insanity.
Perhaps sanity?
 
I will find my place.
I will go to New York soon.
To find my  peace of mind.

A old poem. I was at my worst. Thank you for the Army. Sent me to sunny California to revive a life instead.

This is an old poem? Heck, I don't believe. This is my favorite of yours now ;) Some raw emotions poured into words here. Depicts perfectly the inside of your mind. I don't think "Or my highway to hell?" fits in there. It'd be all the more better if you remove it. This is going into my favorites and I'm rating it 100!

I love this poem, Great emotion driven through the imagery and very thought provoking. "Sit on a park bench where Leonard Cohen sat with Joplin.
Whispering stories of things to come." I could so picture this and it really made my mind go there and imagine their thoughts. Great work!

i see raw emotional anger towards a darker tone of life.
We all passed those, but time stood by for us to learn.
like in my poem.
Life isn't easy, we know, but we learned
and we survived.
great work my friend.

Emotions, environment and people certainly make up the flavor of places and events in life. You would definitely have many stories that would keep you up wondering about human inclinations in that city.
Good to hear you headed out to the pacific coast...so that we could read the writings that came out of there!
Enjoyed this honest write.

New York! One of my favorite places to visit....
You have woven a clever piece full of yearning, yearning for passion, to be desire, to show your desire.... The darkness in you comes to the surface, but without dark there can be no light and this piece I find full of hope... Hope to find an adventure.... And you Will find it my friend:)
