Don't mind this one because I just wanted to see if I could write a poem with three consecutive rhyming words.So the poem might seem a little forced.I've been reading a lot of poetry on this website and I've noticed that a lot of poets don't like to write in rhyme.That's not the case with me.I don't think I've ever written a poem that doesn't rhyme.I know it's weird but I can't write a poem unless it contains some type of rhyming form.Perhaps some of you can give me some advice on changing my writing style.
I am a retired New York City Corrections Officer that is currently attending Nassau Community College. I am studying creatve writing, and I hope to make my living as a writer now that I'm retired.I am 41 years old and currently divorced and living in Long Island.

Your Prison Cell (Poetry) Another Rikers Island experience.This poem is about an 19 year old inmate named Ralph Porter.I discovered him hanging in his prison cell one night while I was working the graveyard shift. [382 words] [Crime]
Lost in a world of illusion
Trapped in a cage of confusion
Suffering from psychotic delusions
Bounded tightly in chains
The people all call me insane
Hate and disgust is all that remains
Fall down into the realms of Hell
I can't scream,I can't yell
Going crazy in my prison cell
Left out in the freezing cold
There's no hope for me now,so I am told
My heart ages and grows old
Feel the flames of the fire
Take the drug and soar higher
No time for love or desire
Feel the sharp blade of the knife
A lonely husband sits without a wife
Now there is no meaning in his life
Are you disgusted by the choices you make?
Should you give before you take?
Is the laughter you hear totally fake?
Did you lose the power of your free will?
When you feel the pain,do you take the pill?
Are you the first in line after the kill?
Do you feel that life is to hard?
Has life dealt you the death card?
Do you fall to your knees and pray to God?
Are you capable of anything but hate?
Will you be denied entrance at Heavens gate?
Do you believe in the hand of fate?
Do you believe in Heaven after you die?
Can you feel happiness or do you sit and cry?
Does anyone have the answers or the reasons why?
Are you incapable of touch and can not feel?
Can you figure out if life is real?
Why is your heart so cold and made of steel?
When I look into your eyes I turn to stone
The look that you give me back chills my bones
Turn and walk away and just leave me alone
Can you breathe the coldness of the air?
I call for you but your not there
It doesn't matter for no one seems to care
Why are you wasting the minutes of the day?
Why is time slowly ticking away?
No need for words there's nothing left to say
I'm left standing alone in a pit of shame
I'm wondering who's left to blame
The wild tiger in me is untamed
Are you lost and lonely and without a fiend?
Is there some kind of signal you can send?
Why must all good things come to an end?

"I think this piece is good. But you do not have to force rhymes, which I think this does. I have a hard time writing poems that do not rhyme also, but I think it flows better if you don't try so hard to make so many lines rhyme. BTW I really have enjoyed your posts. One question...are the names you use in your stories real or fictional? " -- mattie.
"Dear Mattie,I think I would like to leave the answer to that question a mystery.Tell me what you think and if you feel I should be using real names.Thanks for the review." -- David D.
