This is the first poem i wrote.

You know how you stand in line

for the most gigantic roller coaster you've ever dared attempt

Anticipation swells minute by minute

you choose to wait even longer

to ride in the last car

and finally it's your turn

They buckle you in

lock the safty bar

the chain jerks you forward

you start to climb

inch by inch getting closer to the top

time moves to overtime

as you wait for that scant hesitation

just befor you drop

knowing you can't turn back

That's exactly the feeling you get

when you shake hands with monsters


your nose ignites

burning in your veins

or smoke filling your lungs

poder demons bite through cartilage

liquid lead streams up your arm

smoky dust floats inside of your insides

they take dead aim at your brain

the walls came crashing down

pulsing, raging, rushing

you want to cry

you want to scream

you want to let go

It makes you fly

makes you want more

makes you say all the things you'd rather not

no sleep and no food

you fly until you crash

days later

nights longer

come down off any of the monsters

you crash


real hard

This poem puts me into a roller coaster and makes me experience the ups and downs and each turn and pause! Very well written, Cearaigh!
Hope you continue to write.
