  • POEM: More by Joey Jones (3/23/2014 2:26:00 PM)

    Thank you Colleen. It is greatly appreciated that you enjoyed the poem. I think we all do it. It is a hard reality at times to think how small we are.

  • POEM: His Morning Ritual by Clifton Redmond (10/13/2013 10:29:00 AM)

    Beautifully written Clifton. It is odd what we remember from our childhood and how those memories later in life influence us. I wonder how different your Morning Ritual is now different than his?

  • POEM: When by Joey Jones (9/26/2013 1:12:00 PM)

    Hello, Hello!

    My name is Joey Jones. I am at best an armature poet. I recently started writing again after taking 20 years off from it. I have no accolades or degrees in literature just a simple poet and special education teacher. Since October of this year and the passing of a good friend I have spent most of me free time reading and writing poetry. I began posting and reading at a different website but it was riddled with bugs and didn't work half the time. I recently found poemhunter and think I may have found a new home. I may write about anything and everything here is one of my rhymed poems though, I don't always write rhymed it was a fun one to write. I often write in formed poetry or free verse. I am not perfect with my grammar and occasionally misspell a word. Feel free to message me with a critique or of you need something that I can help with let me know. My page is:

    I am
    I am the eclipse that makes you blind,
    a dark shadow cast upon your mind.
    As you try to escape into the light
    I'll serve as a reminder of the night

    I am the scent of your blooms decay
    a putrid aroma from your lost bouquet.
    As from my dreadful stench you bolt
    I'll engulf your being until you revolt

    I am the bitter you find in your sweet,
    an aftertaste from your spoiled meat.
    As you glutton on to much to chew,
    I'll feed you more of my wretched stew.

    I am the timbre of your screams,
    a sound echoed from your dreams.
    As you try to escape with your soul,
    I'll be the melody of your bell's toll.

    I am the agony that you must feel,
    the pain letting you know it was real.
    If you think this fiend you have met
    you have, for I am your life's regret
