I am on the wrong side of heaven
and hell is tearing at my soul.
It's a quarter after eleven,
there's forty five minutes to go,
at the strike of twelve,
I'll be journeying in hell.
The wind will no longer blow,
in the darkness I'll walk alone,
true harshness will chill my bones.
Journeying to a false paradise,
where demons are already in control.
Here fire does not melt ice,
where the righteous play the fool.
Do you hear it, the theft of my spirit,
the deafening silence, can you hear it?
No more love is alive,
just lost the will to survive,
a place where good and evil collide.
It's closer than you think,
just take one more drink. . .

I have been writing poetry for 44 years. I began writing poetry when I was 15 years old and to this date I have written over 16,000 poems. I have had poems published in The San Fernando Journal, The Rag Mag, WYRD, The Cultural Reverence(e-magazine) and in Kiiroo(e-magazine), Mobius and the World Peace Anthology. I have over 1000 poems published in all. I also have a poetry page on Wix.com entitled anemotionaljourney.com. I also have written a Science Fiction/Fantasy novel entitled "The Blue Sphere" and I am currently working on three other books at the present time. The first is entitled "The Angel and the Witches, the second is "Once Upon A Halloween" and the third is "The Devil's Playground".
