Oh, I enjoyed this one immensely -- what fun! And the internal rhyme is excellent, my friend, as is the end rhyme and meter. But my favorite line? "...Turning diamonds to coal"

This is exceptional- the way you describe a state of known recklessness is very creative and you deliver very clearly the state of mind of this pieces subject- almost like a poem written by a rock and roll icon

This is written well, short and snappy but such a string message. I think we all at one time or another or eight now has somebody like that in our lives. I was nodding going this is written for this person I know to a T!!!! Thanks for sharing I enjoyed it

Hi, Jesse. Remember me? I've been away for four and a half years

I liked your poem and it DOES evoke mental illness in my mind particurly bi polar. We've discussed this before. We share mental illness. I am bi polar

That last line was a zinger. The illness won

Thank you for sharing

I enjoyed reading this poem. I thought it was about our two presidential candidates. It fits both perfectly. Enough politics. This is a wonderfully written poem and I continue to pray for you.

    I avoid writing political posts. Too much mumbo jumbo to go around.
    I am glad you enjoyed reading this.
    Thanks for your continued prayers.
