Poetry justifies my life,
but I no longer write
so why am I living?
Or am I living?
Knowing not happiness
love, joy or peace
Why live?
Why exist just to exist?
To be alone in this hell.
Always surrounded by silence
- deafening silence,
as crowds move in the disarray
and chaos of their happiness
... happiness, I long for happiness.
But it rests in the chest
of another and is kept from me
by distance, time - existence,
or lack thereof... more »

    I came across one of your terza rima sonnets when looking through the new poems. It is encouraging to find another form-poet here. I look forward to reading more of your work. All the best.

    Well, i've been at this Literary thing for quite awhile now...Seen many a face come and go...some good, some not so good, but earnest in their attempts at greatness. And once in a Green Mile, which Stephen King wrote'was the longest mile', i come across the precocious element of literature....Someone who barely out of his teens, has already carved a finely chisled poetic niche of his own along with garnering a large supportive Readership base on several of the internets most prestigious literary/poetry sites.Les Alexis is the person i speak of. His prodigious command of structure, diction and innovative craftsmanship may only perhaps be superseded by his extraordinary talent for diversification, as a multi-style artist of the Written Word. In my 4 years on this site, i have made it a point not to get involved in publicly singling out any one Poet/Writer for outstanding literary accomplishment, as my belief is that doing so has its propensity of causing hard feelings with those i may have either overlooked, or did not feel they were due special acknowledgement. However to every standard there is always that rare exception to the rule. And in my book of words, Les Alexis has proven his wothiness to that exception. Bottom line...whether it be here at poemhunter.com where he just recently contributed close to 500 of his works, to the site, or at poetfreak.com, where he is arguably recognized as one of the sites most popularly read and valued talents, ....do yourself a favor and take the time to treat yourself to the poetry of Les Alexis....You will not be disappointed!

    Since brown sugar is sweet
    And you are Caribbean
    Sweetest will be poured on paper
    Leslie keep it up!
    And keep sweetening your lives
    With the poems you write...

    This poem for Leslie Alexis from Honest Heart:

    The power of the Smile

    You have a sword, don't you know?
    You have a power, don't you believe?
    You have a key, don't you sure?

    Don't you know, by your smile:
    You can be the fire ….
    You can be the pen…
    You can be the star…

    Don't you know, you can be as you wish?
    Don't you believe, you can be as you dream?
    Don't you think, you can be the leader?

    Don't you know:
    Sweet smile can make date for two sweet soul…
    Pure smile can play love song on some one's heart…
    Honest smile can put the fire on your desire…
    Optimistic smile can clear all the darkness…
    True smile can paint the rainbow on your life…
    Strong smile can put shining stars on your sky…
