A Poem by Daniel Gardner

Title says it all...


No one knows the rage within
No one wants to believe it
The shade of red does it no justice
I cannot stand anymore
This rage blisters like a sore
It festers
It oozes
Decaying the flesh around it
They watch as I grab my chest
Feeling the evil blade plunged deep within
My mind is a blaze
The smoke blocking all logic
Its consuming me
Slow my eyes change to black
Cotton drys my mouth
Blood courses out my nose
Finally my rage is set free
Terrified and in pain
I will make everyone suffer
A care I do not have in the world
Only one can guess how it came about
But its to late
A Plague I will unleash
Of fear and no peace.

The last two lines are great for the poem, but you have a few typos, like "drys" should be "dries" and "But its to late", "to" should be "too". It feels like the poem is a little choppy since the rhyming isn't consistent, but at the same time that makes it a little more real. Good job.

you mustve been very mad or something. i want to say its a dark piece but that wouldnt do itself justice. it was amazing in the dark and evil way. it screams to all who read it. very terrifying to read when you see the words in perfect form and no sentences that fully end but every word having eternal meaning in your mind. i loved it.

:D deadly healer
