The Last Thoughts of Ian Curtis
As my body spasms and trembles, there’s a chasm opening Let me fall into the abyss Who will miss me? The wife I cheated on?
I’m standing outside of the Chelsea Hotel reading the bronze plaques commemorating some of the literary luminaries who passed through
We didn’t hear the news of your departure until three days after you slipped between the jail bars of this world and snuck through a crack in the sky.
A Letter to Michael Jackson
Dear Michael Jackson, I'd like to explain my huge attraction Your music makes me SMILE, makes me GET ON THE FLOOR. I dance until the BREAK OF DAWN,
Why I Love Lord Byron
Let me start this off by saying I am a person who doesn’t like poetry all that much. Sure, at this point in my life, I can be mature and respect poetry as a sophisticated craft of literature, but back in the day I would not even attempt to read poetry. I used to just stare at it and say “EW. I. HATE. POETRY,” and move on with my life. But being an English major has allowed me to overcome this attitude or, you know, it has at least a little bit. I still don’t like it very much.
I know you more than you could ever know. By the way the emotion in your voice will flow. I've cried for your pain and I've celebrated your joy. As delicate and innocent as a juvenile boy. I can hear it in the lyrical conception. Those words must have come from a place beyond the deep. I wonder if they haunt your spirit as you sleep. I have fallen with you when you've been alone and cold. I'd go back again if it convinced them that the truth was told. They'd realise it through the lyrical conception. Every syllable you utter is done with a pure deliverance. Your sound pausing my day causes me no hindrance. As majestic as a swan gliding across a tranquil lake. I'm light as air with every note your vocal chords create. It's an honest portrayal through lyrical conception. With all you've tolerated and all you've been through. You should be awarded for the bravery you ensue. You keep saying I am the one who keeps you strong. But it is you who keeps my faith carrying on. I love you more for explaining it by the lyrical conception.

07-24-17 I think God would forgive me, If I gave up. But I know he wants me to keep going... And I was going to write another fistfight poem for Chester,
A Poem of the Arts
Thank you to Charlotte for giving us Jane, a novel full of Victorian pain, And thank you Yeats for poems untamed, and thanks for all the political pain.
The epitome of greatness, a mark in history Of discipline remarkable, a stellar victory Defeating the unbeaten, knock and break the mould
