five in the hole

five in the hole

A Poem by Amber Victoria Tudor

The child told me to stay
Because family has always
Been a fantasy
The old lady told me to
To say F**k you
I like cats
The girl that likes
To dress up in diamonds
And pretend to be a movie star
Always looked for something better
And pointed him out to me
With her sharp eyes
The alcoholic
Just loved having a buddy
But knew that everything
Full of acquaintance
And sex
And pushed me
To use it
I wanted to love
I wanted to live

Wow, sharply beautiful poem...Melancholy and dark, yet a tinge of hope in the end...which is always the last thing in the pandora's box. Thank you for sharing.

the phrases are on time, the movement of the words are real good. this is one of your best poems to me. the evolving process is difficult, yet with a fun that breathes insanity.

Powerful... So deeply moving, in and out of lives and wandering places... Speaks of feelings, of striving desires for more. Seemed like just a glimpse of all there is... all there was...
