POEM-1: LIFE IS MEANINGFUL AND BEAUTIFUL AND ROMANTIC. LIFE NEVER BANGS YOU UP OR GETS IN YOUR WAY. IS A LIFE LESS LIVED A LIFE LESS OWNED? CAN A LIFE LIKE NO OTHER EMBRACE ANOTHER? MY LIFE IS WATER UNDER THE BRIDGE. THANK YOU.

POEM-2: I WAIT. I WAIT FOR HER. I WAIT FOR HER TO COME. I CAN WAIT ALL DAY. WHEN SHE ARRIVES AT MY SIDE. WHEN THINGS ARE SAID AND DONE. WHEN MY BODY IS SATISFIED. SHE MAY LEAVE AGAIN. AND THEN, ONCE AGAIN, I WILL WAIT. I WILL WAIT FOR HER... THANK YOU.

POEM-3:MY BRAIN IS A BALLOON. AND IT MAY REACH THE CLOUDS IF I DON'T KEEP A TIGHT GRIP ON THINGS. THE STRING, THE STRING IS MY NECK. I MUST HOLD TIGHTLY THE STRING, BUT NOT TOO TIGHTLY, OR MY LIFE WOULD PASS AWAY. LIKE A BALLOON... INTO OUTER SPACE. THANK YOU.

POEM-4:WONDERFUL MEMORIES OF JULIA ARE LOCKED INSIDE MY COLD CARELESS HEART. THERE THEY PLAY, OVER AND OVER AGAIN, FOR MY PLEASURE AND MINE ALONE. THEY DON'T KNOW THEY'RE JUST MEMORIES, THEY DON'T KNOW THAT I WATCH THEM, PEERING, STARING, GLARING THROUGH THE DARK FOREST OF MY INNER MOST FEELINGS AND ATTRIBUTES. THEY ARE UNAWARE. THANK YOU.

POEM-5:WHAT IS LIFE? WHAT IS LOVE? WHAT IS REAL? MY PAIN IS REAL. MY SUFFERING IS VERY REAL. WHAT IS UNREAL? WHAT IS TOO HARD TO BELIEVE? MY BILLS ARE UNREAL. MY SITUATION IS UNBELIEVABLE. MY LIFE IS OUT OF MY CONTROL IT IS REMOVED FROM ME, TWICE. I AM ALL THAT IS LEFT LYING IN THE AFTERMATH OF MY EXISTANCE. THANK YOU.

POEM-6:WHEN I WAS BORN MY FATHER TOOK ONE LOOK AT ME AND CRIED. WHEN I TURNED 5 MY MOTHER GAVE ME A KISS ON THE JAW AND SIGHED. NOW, NOW I AM A MAN. A MAN WITH A LIFE AND CHILD OF HIS OWN. A MAN NAMED MANNY. THE CYCLE OF LIFE IS UNCANNY. THANK YOU.
