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!

My soul has become so dirty.
I feel I would fall into the old city.
Become like her.
Full of secrets and hidden desires. ---- Nice imagery.

I especially love the the first verse and I will wonder about Cohen and Joplin myself now. *smiles* Good write, my friend.

This poem could be the lyrics for a blues number .. bring out the best guitar and you have a true winner, John. Your writing has a special sound, low key but clear cut so you can see the pictures rolling by

Great and moody, powerful yet subtle.

This is such a truthful poem, you made your point clear in this piece.
This isn't any of your worst, infact, I think it's such a great poem that deserves to be published !
Great work!
