Hold your breath
Too wary, too cold
Close your heart
With poisons bold
Eat your resolve then
Beat until broken
The self that you call your own

Grown bones
Hidden from faces
Alone in your home
Seeking night places
Imagining school friends
Through a window of fear
Do you exist if no one is near?
Show me your face
Or you'll disappear
How can you leave this room without dying

    I liked this piece. The poem flowed into the main object well and created an understanding to the reader with symbols relating to the bitter reality of isolation (correct?)
    I really admired the lines,
    "Eat your resolve then
    Beat until broken
    The self that you call your own"
    I really enjoyed those lines and how they were written to tie into the piece.
    Well done, good job

    Aw man, i was a hermit about 2 years ago for at least 11 months...i mean i didn't interact with hardly anyone..i just hid away in my flat too scared to meet anyone from my past, and way to negative to open myself up to anyone new.

    This poem made me think of that time. Bold effort as usual Mr man.

    So hows the website coming along? any progress?
