A Poem by Canicus

Welcome to the circus

of darkness and despair

the first act, a boy

always treated unfair

you'll enjoy this one

as you watch his heart tear

and he realizes

no one will ever care

for the second act

you watch as he goes through hell

it gets worse everyday

as you can probably tell

no hope for him

but I guess ohh well

last but not least

watch as stress takes it's toll

ripping him apart, piece by piece

slowly tearing away his soul

bringing you great joy

knowing he will never be whole

never, ever

Ohhhh, this would have to be my favourite poem of all of yours. It was so sad, and the idea of it being a circus, tragic.

This write is very, very sad but very good too. On the 14th line you wrote "Bu" instead of "But" but that was a very small imperfection in this write. I applaud your rhyming scheme in this write, it didn't seem as if it strayed once. Great write I enjoyed reading.

This is pretty great. Full of sadness but yet somewhere there seems to be a hidden truth.
~Keep it up~
