Return To Streetfighting 1: A Decade Later

Return To Streetfighting 1: A Decade Later

A Poem by Joseph - Michael
"

Don't know what the hell I was thinking.

"

 

It Had Been Over Ten Years That Have Passed By

Since I've Stepped Onto The Bloody Battleground

Looked At The Opponent Which I Was Facing Off With

The Crowd Roared At The Beginning Of The First Round

The New Enemy Of Mine Had Started The War Cry



My Senses Told Me That My Old Powers Are Still Within



I Kept My Patience As He Ran Toward With His Fists

I Stood And Waited For Him To Make The First Strike

He Seemed To Be Determined To Punch My Face In

My Left Cheekbone Felt That His Knuckles Were Spiked

Watched My Fresh Blood Squirting Out Into The Mist



My Senses Told Me That My Old Powers Are Ready To Begin



I Quickly Turned My Face Toward His Face And Stared

Looked Straight Into His Eyes To Know What He Was

All I Saw Was Nothing But His Cockiness Of All Sins

That Didn't Impress Me Enough To Be Left In The Awe

I Kept My Patience And Did Nothing Yet But Glared



My Senses Told Me That My Old Powers Are Now Out Of My Skins



I Finally Made My Move After I Dodged Another Of His Punch

Then I Jumped And Used My Right Knee Against His Jaw Line

Then He Looked Like He Was All Ready To Be Given In

On The Ground His Blood Looked Like It Was Made Out Of Slime

He Was Lucky That Any Of His Bones Wasn't Crunched



My Senses Told Me That My Old Powers Didn't Need To Win



The Powers That I Once Have Almost Completely Forgotten

They Were Never Lost And Were Never Away From Me

All Were Locked Up And Away From My Lone Spirit Within

Only They Can Be Unleashed Once Someone Make Me Bleed

My Blood Had Told My Old Powers When It Was Begotten



It Wasn't My Old Powers That Came From An Act Of The Faith

It Was My Old Powers That Based On An Act Of True Wraith

i like this poem. its interesting. after reading some of your work, you have a unique style, you write from a very male perspective. your writings are real, raw, & gritty. & i like it that way. the topic of this poem is violent & powerful. i especially loved the stanza about looking into his eyes, this guy your getting ready to fight with. your work is intense & brilliant. keep writing!

I like it, I can connect to the feelings. You have a special niche here. Not enough guys from this scene like to write. Keep it up.

It isn't quite my taste.
Something about it does speak to me.

I think this needs a bit of a rework as far as grammer and spelling go, but the story is interesting. Maybe some more about the fight as well.
