Holding On To Life
L A Winterburn

Each night I hear voices that scream in my head
Vicious, relentless that wish I was dead
Inciting my murder, my demise they do plead
Luscious intentions of evil and greed

With malice thatís tempting, eternal pleasures they pledge
Internal frustrations, to iniquity I edge
Life with no meaning, I feel so alone
Living in fear, they have come for my soul

Falling further into darkness, my spirit soon lost
In the gloom of the night on the window shows frost
Not in my wild nightmares did I ever suspect
Deceptions of demons, please god, please protect

My hand is now moving with a gun to my face
Evil will find me, so its filled with blanks...

                                               Just in case

"wasn't this called something else before? It's still brilliant!" -- John.
"Yes it was john i just thought this title fitted it better. Thanks for notticeing tho :-)" -- the author.
"Just to say, I think the last`s line is rhythmically clumsy, and too much of a throwaway punchline." -- Peter Rivendell.
"WOW Peter thanx for notticeing, and of course for telling me. I had my suspicions on the last line as i didn't think it was that great either. I was kinda struggling with it and i think it does need a rethink. But it just goes to show that if you think a peice of work you have done is great and you dont think you could make ay changes in it then it most probally is. But then again if you think just the odd thing here and ther needs changeing then otherpeople are bound to nottice it as well. Oh by the way did you read down the first letter of every line?" -- The author.
"I think it's brilliant and so are you." -- Honey Bee.
"I have changed the last line now well not changed it as much just sort of edited where the punchline is. does that make it sound any better?" -- the author.
"This is really good...something brought me back to it a second time and then I realized that the letters down the side spell something. It was captivating, frightening, excellent!" -- Jason.
"i don't know why i seem to think of your poems as oldies and prosies. people may not agree with this but, i know in the near future, poems are not going to be like this anymore. maybe the natter poems that gives more than needed, if you know what i mean. oh and that last line, still doesn't fit with the poem. " -- lori-ann.
"I dont agreee with you Lori Ann, I think that the author really captured an internal fear and created this piece in a way that aesthetically looked pleasing as well. I think the last line is perfect in the sense that it takes the reader from the fear and desperation of the body of the poem and moves into an almost comical ending. I think it's excellent." -- Michelle.
"*****I really liked this, it's really good.I liked your choice of words. I also agree with Michelle's review,about the ending line." -- d donely.
