Since our birth until our death / We write our life's pages / We write our good deeds and our bad deeds / When we pass away anytime / Then we will take this book with us / Either we pass our test or we fail /.

The Day the Jester Died
Written by Adam M. Snow
Twenty one times three, a journey of laughter;
the fool borne clown was he.
Entertaining his majesty - soon after
realize the laughter would soon die with him.
Soon to vanish, he of many voices.
All his jest would soon to end,
all to end by his choices;
a feeling without a friend.
This Jester who proudly gave us laughter,
was dying deep within.
Covering his pain with the joy of laughter.
If it were enough, it would have been,
but it wasn't enough for him.
So this Jester left to wonder,
'Was he truly loved enough?'
Yet he could not see past yonder,
the treasures that loved enough.
He gave his all but lost his soul to grieve,
and grieve himself upon a tree.
Entangled rope among the sticks and leaves,
a last resort, felt for a Jester such as he.
So now this Jester once a clown,
lays to rest within his chamber.
Retiring with him his Jester's crown,
leaving with us a memory to remember.
This Jester left without a bow,
still a mystery to us all.
The thought that struck him and how
he felt the need to fall.
A broken heart, was that his pain?
Thus this day that laughter died.
A reason for sorrow to reign,
O for his majesty, who cried.
O his majesty's courts,
silence fills the hall.
The king is left to mourn,
the Jester who felt the need to fall.
Laughter died with him,
the fool borne clown.
A joyous time spent with him,
now he passes on his Jester's crown.Replies for this message:

You're giving all you got, Kid. If I could slap you on the back, I would. Kind of like chocolate syrup, but better than no syrup at all. Try some powdered sugar next time.

Nice write. The words, its lucidity and expressional simplicity draws the line perfect to touch a man who offers our heart to release some burdens. Valuable tribute. Thank you.

...Conscience, don't abandon me,
Through my journey, on this day,
Keep supporting, as you're always,
On the wisdom, of my say...

I'm burning like a candle everyday / I'm looking for my hope somewhere / Me and myself are two in one / Simply because we can not be one in two / There are many horizons around me / My whole life is confused / I'm a real co-partner in torturing myself / And I'm still looking for myself / But I don't find myself / I'm still missing or I'm drowned /.................. This poem is called - Myself -.

Ladies and gentlemen, I think we have a great poet with us. I have checked out her writing and it is superb! Her name is Carmi Basson!

Allure of darkness
Farewell sweet luna;
the queen Nyx is coming
from the east,
let me fade in these parting
hours, like a candle
burns down in the wind.
O! when love fails, tales of the dead rise.but
who tells her:
love not begins but bangs...
And symphony of the autumn breaths in my soul, but
she says, " in darkness
winds are silent."
PS. needs final strokes...

First, the one eye, then the other opens,
lazily. A faint smile rolls across his face,
as he surveys the outline of her body.
Out of the end of the creased, crumpled, white sheets,
her feet unfurl their crimson-painted toes
like a Chinese fan.
Her head lies upon his chest, her neck exposed,
and eyes closed, while her auburn hair
mingles with his under arm's.
A small, gold crucifix, loose on its chain,
hangs just above her right nipple, with a
raised profile of a figure in agony.
A potent hint of her perfume in his nose,
mixed with the taste of her creamy love
on his lips, seeps deep inside his soul.
He couldn't imagine how, once upon a time,
Sunday mornings were spent repenting
for the ecstasy from this unhallowed union.
