these are all excellent!  Thank you all I extended this another week!  <3

slipalong, I know and feel the edge this place give us each individually. Im in love with it. <3

David, I too suffer with PTSD and have often felt like leaving this place as well. There is a method to all this madness my friend. Oh the madness...<3

Afromtheash...i shed a tear and smiled at what I read from you. You delivered exactly what this mysteriouslady needed! <3

Stoney223...the strength in your words made this lady feel.  Certain aspects of my life danced across my mind when I read your entry. That is the work of a great poet!  <3

Functional Chronology


 
And thus I became that man:
 
smoked my first cigar
best friend stole my crush
drank my first scotch
saw a naked woman
at a strip club
fucked a girl who broke
my heart a week later,
fucked another girl who
broke it again...a week later
...stayed with her anyway
because I was so desperate
fucked a married woman
more desperate than I
drinking
abject loneliness
joined a band
fucked all the women
started making money
left the band
 
work...
 
...
 
golf...
 
...
 
 ...
 
...
 
became boring...
 
...
 
  ...
 
...
 
snapped and started writing poetry

Snugglebuck, I love your story, man!! You’re a guy who sacrifices for those he loves. Glad you found something for yourself and glad you’re still kicking cancer’s ass. HF

Poetry Makes the World Go Round

My name is Walter, but my friends call me Wally,
I graduated high school in nineteen ninety-two,
Just to be clear, I’ve been writing for thirty years,
Now I’m happy to share something new with you.

In the digital age and I found a web page,
A home where I could post and share my poems,
But the site shut down and though I looked around,
For years I was “homeless” so I continued to roam.

One day then as I searched the web again,
I came across and found the Deep Underground,
The poetry was bangin’ and the poets were slammin’
An all-night café where I could hang around.

In DUP I found a place that I came to embrace,
Exchanging ideas and other versatile notions,
Here I learned to expand and came to understand,
Poets change the world sharing personal emotions.

DUP is a corner in the world where talents can unfurl,
Inspiring poets to wonder, explore and reflect,
Creating new connections and grammatical inflexions,
Rousing writers to earn recognition and respect.

The best part about the Underground it’s the special sound,
It’s the voice of poets who’ve come to be heard,
Poetry makes the world go round, in every country and town,
DUP is the place to be where poets can spread the word.
