Kinda like the publicity angle,

Most of us have there been entangled,

Nothing unusual herein or new fangled,

I’d be happier with a good one,

But bad does seem better than none…


Then again, I write for the fun,

I do so better in the dark than in the sun,

Does that mean I have darkness within,

Or maybe it just means I am & forever will be,

Inundated in sin…


Flat on my face I sometimes land,

My looks are now most bland,

Must be the cement, rarely I hit soft sand,

Out as well from my body,

Do guts & blood and fat cells furtherly expand…

I do so better in the dark than in the sun,
Does that mean I have darkness within,

No just means you are a vampire....

Good bad or indifferent, write because you can, because you love to, because you have to. :) Excellent, Ed.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Yea you are right to be acknowledged for good or bad I guess is an acknoledgement that we exist and therefore are living...even the pain you feel when you hit the cement would be appreciated by someone who can no longer feel.
