This was a very good poem. you can really read a lot from it. this peom
makes you wonder how a person could live such a life. Or even why a person
would want to live such a life. I have tried many of times to write a poem
that good but mine always turn out really bad. If there is someone that is
reading this who can feel that they can give some advice as to how i can
make my poems better let me know b/c it could really help to have someone
elses oppinon

this poem was a blow it was very depresing and i do not think it should
have ever been posted. Not everyone's life sucks like this persons but why
does he have to go and tell us all about it. what a waste of perfectly good
colum space. this guy is a horrible writter and should not have been

This is a poem about someone who came from a broken home and was raised in
a hateful enviornment. He had a deeply burried love for the world but had
no means of knowing how to express it. The only person who ever cared about
him was Emily Sparks who entered in his life far too late: he had already
given up on love and was not open to recieving it. After a fling with some
chick, he goes to a bar with a prostitute. Aparantly they exchange some
kisses as he sobs. She believes the tears to be tears of love for her and
he knos it's wrong but kisses her anyway. I assume he dies of alcohol
poisoning soon after the kissing where he enters the spirit world and
begins to tell his story to Emily Sparks after realizing she loved him
because that love gives his soul peace.
