Larry Belt, USA



The distant sounds of silent screams
Echo through my soul
A nightmare filled with broken dreams
That time cannot console

My helpless mind will not yield
To these voices that I hear
My captive thoughts have not revealed
The purpose of my fear

Loneliness mocks my very being
As time comes screeching to a halt
Blame still hides my eyes from seeing
Insisting it's not my fault

They say I'm mad, mad indeed
They know nothing of my pain
There's no one here to intercede
So this madness must remain

My soul cries out in sad remorse
But I fear it's already too late
I cannot alter this dreadful course
That somehow holds my fate

They call me a poet, poet indeed
How is it they do not know?
Can't they see the words I bleed?
I'm Edgar Allan Poe

Jeffrey SingerVery fine work--lots of nuance words used, mood created throughout, and sentences kept as even (in number of syllables) as possible or appropriate. This latter gives smoothness to this work. The ending had impact. Very nice, indeed.USA8/16/2011 3:44:39 PM

Shane RichardsI really wanted to win this month larry, but with such a fantastic, well written and insightful poem as this, I hadn't a chance. This is an incredible poem, and one you can be extremely proud of. Congratulations to you on your win, you deserve it. Best wishes UK7/22/2011 2:02:44 PM
Dwayne RankinOH My Goodness, I read this and so entered into the realm of the madness of one of my favorite author of either poetry or prose.. The Raven has got to be my favorite poem and all his stories which bring such morbid delight are all equally entertaining.. You've captured the essence of his writing with a great style. Congratulations on writing such a poem as this and so richly deserves the first place in this months contest. Love this one..USA7/22/2011 10:08:02 AM
