Live Life Believing Time Heals All
Death is not by our Command
No Human Credit
or Blame
Unless an act by
Thy Own Hand!


 Unknown - Selfserving -Everlasting -Reality

The downside of Life and Happiness
Touched me Several Times Before
Unaware - Clueless -- No Warning --
Mr. Death
Kicks Down Your Door

Unfaithful TIME

Selfish TIME


Ruthless TIME

The USER arrives by Surprise
The Feared Evil Spirit -- Sucker of Life
The USER takes Loved ones Away
Anywhere - Any Time - Day or Night

for the loved one

Grant Eternal Peace!

OH !

BUT! Judge THYSELF Indeed:

Cringe, Cry, Grieve, Scream, Yell, Howl, Curse,
Damn, Blame and Bleed
Ask Questions,
Search the Soul
Scrutinize methods, motives, actions and words
Double Check -- all Ifs, AND's, Buts -

Madness Will Seize The Mind

Totally Out of touch --
Erratic -
At times Absurd !!

Beloved Humans Left Behind Off Balance utter
Nonsense Words

Enslaved and Unnerved in the Vast Vivid Void
Captured by the Gatekeeper - void Existence!
Brutal Reality - Raw Nerve Endings Exposed
Uncontrolled Pain and Irrationality

Questions of a "MAD" Human Mind
Murmurs Low


What am I to do
What about me? me? me?

For I fear
Yes I fear
I need You Here
I want You Near
How did I kill You?
What could I do?
To have saved you from YOUR DEATH

Insanity Controls - A Hairshirted Soul -
Loss we can't explain
Self Guilt and Blame is a Sad Shame
Self imposed, Unintentional, Unwarranted Pain

YOU - WE - Me are rendered
Powerless -
Time controls the USER Game

USER = Unknown Self-serving Everlasting Reality

Live Life Believing Time Heals All
Death is not by our Command
No Human Credit or Blame
Unless an act by
Thy Own Hand!

You have crafted some excellent lines. I especially like,

"Insanity Controls - A Hairshirted Soul -
Loss we can't explain
Self Guilt and Blame is a Sad Shame
Self imposed, Unintentional, Unwarranted Pain"

The use of caps in uncommon places, though often annoying (in my opinion) when used in other works, add to the creativity of this poem. The overall topic is handled extremely well. Finally, I love the ending. Enough!

"I used her and she used me. Neither one of us cared. We were getting our share." - Bob Segar "Night Moves"

Often a good poem will bring a song to mind. Yours brought this one. Well Done.

Karen, I am not certain whether my work has ever inspired another writer, but even if it had, their efforts would quite certainly have paled in comparison to your efforts in USER. Furthermore, I am not certain whether my often jumbled poems have ever been understood as completely as you evidently have understood *Eighteen*. Little though its weight and possibly also its worth, I THANK YOU for writing this, for being inspired to write it, and for the way reading it, and knowing this, has made me feel.
