A Poem by Glenn Davis
"

A summary of why I put it on paper

"
It feels like most of my life, 
Was spent with a gun to my head.
This left me with one hand consumed
and the other, under pressure

I said,

It feels like I spent most of my life
With a gun pressed firmly against my head
Which left me with one hand consumed
and the other, it was under pressure.

Under pressure with a pen in its grasp
Trembling out words
Any words
Just to relieve the tension on vigilante fingers
Of a sweaty palm, ready to squeeze

And while others might claim it
I whole heartedly make the statement
That if I stop writing 
It would be the very death of me!

You see I don't get inspired
I scribe under the intimidation of
A cold barrel longing to be heated
A chamber begging to be emptied
The pressure of knowing that
If I don't spit out the contents of my mind
It, will spit it's contents into it

I can never hear the pen click
Over the hammer

This is a very emotional piece. It was in a way graphic, but only when it needed to be. Other than that, great write! Keep up the good work!

Yes, I have felt the same way. a cold barrel longing to be heated is a very good line, I think that poetry has long been the same thing to me that it is to you

Great work. Your emotions are strong. If you have trouble expressing your emotions through spoken words, writing them out helps soo much. Its like therapy. And when your done writing, you feel some of the pressure ease, at least thats how it is for me! Anywho great piece.

I love this piece...I think this explains how and why a lot of people write. There is a need to get it out or it just keeps building up and the "pressure" is too much to bear. I like the repetition of the first two stanzas.

Bottled up emotions will eventually release, and if you don't do it in a controlled way before they explode innocent people wind up hurt, especially loved one... a very deeply gripping piece of writing.
