Poetry Contest

An exercise in brevity!
I really, really enjoyed finding out what makes some of you tick, what inspires you, and where your hope comes from.  Now's your chance to tell us something about yourself... in 30 words or fewer.

~ New writes only, this time.
~ No erotica
~ Observe the word limit
~ Illustrate it if you like
~ Two weeks

Good luck!

Peace of mind

I am an old fart
Ready from this world to depart
Hopefully peace to find
For of nightmares I've had enough
Total oblivion is a dear wish of mine.

Who am I ?

I wear my heart on my sleeve  
empathy driven
Got dreams to achieve    
love ryme and rhythm †
Battling cancer †
God is forgiven †
Need a hug?†
I †
offer a big one

Crazy Cat Lady

I have five cats, yet
no one ever bats an eyelash
when someone
has five dogs,
or fifty chickens,
or twenty fish,
or two hundred cows.
Wondering why, that is?

Me In 30

habitual dropper of slippery soap
bobbing for semblance of hope
means to cope is creative wordplay
ropes strangling desire to stay & play
by my own hand won't be the way

Caustic Autistic

a genetic mistake
infiltrating society
natural chameleon
only visible
when poked

then like
a hornets nest
i become
an aggressive
aggrevation

30 words of Mysteriously Surviving

the door matt
the shoulder
the fixer
the broken
the listener
the violated
the addicted
the lover
the devoted mother
the loyal wife
this is me, this is my life

Hello Me

A son, a brother, a father, a lover,
an uncle, a friend, a novice with pen
sinner whose forgiven, Jesus my king
worshiping with poetry, cause I can not sing

.
I am.

slightly used, almost attractive,
an unselfish lover.

a giver
who has taken
menís lives.

quietly proud of
my incongruent selves.

I have never been
all of one thing.

Octogenarian teenager

Ever hoping to do better
unfinished manuscript
 competition of the next page
mixing with all the other fonts
youths mind, that age is nought but fun
 bucket list that leaks

Thunder

I am still an echo
added to the silent distance
of your recesses.

Thank you for your excellent entries, and congratualations to Slipalong and Damon.  I'll endeavour to leave some feedback for everyone over the next couple of days... if I get to the point of not having a horrible migraine.
