With this poem I must bid you all for (now),
a fond and warm farewell. For there are issues within these lines
That my mind must dwell…yeah, but I shall rise again,
Maybe in a day, a week….I really do not know when, it is hard to tell.
For the tale that these words impart is indeed a prison,
where my mind at this time of year…does dwell.
So Merry Christmas to you all, and I shall return once again
To this wonderful and kind place, known as “The Authors Den”
~Peace~ J. Allen Wilson 12-22-2003




From within these prison walls I cry,

In solitary silence, I long for another time.

A time before my grave sin, a time before

my mortal crime.


If but I could turn back this clock,

The things I would change,

And directions anew would I take.


For this crime,

lingers still within the chambers of my tortured mind

forever locked by this malevolent past,

chained of heart, and impaled by the harp of time.


I would surrender all, for just another chance,

To look upon your sallow face and beg our love,

just one more dance.


However in ill regret,

I think not this chance I will get.

And forever I shall be,

A prisoner of misdeed

For all of eternity.


Oh dear mother,

I have read poetry, and I have laughed, and yes, shed a few tears...but this one brought deep sobs, for you, and for myself. I feel the pain I know you're feeling, and the helplessness and hopelessness in your search for a way to alleviate it. All I can say, dear Poet, is that Mothers forgive, and so does God.....and that is my salvation --- please let it be yours.

Forgiving ourselves is probably the toughest. But you can... you must. We'll all miss your work. Come back soon.

I wish you peace within.
