"Permanent Shelter"

Cover of leaves

Tatters from pounding

Rain


Flimsy cellophane and

Cardboard walls; collapses in

Pain


A cap of newspapers

Burns in the glaring

Sun


Uncovered heads from their

Dismal corners dashes out and

Run


Concrete cells photocopies

Of photocopies and nothing but

Battlegrounds


Roofs crashes in revealing

Sky overcast with rising

Mounds


Tired bodies cower from the

Shrieks of falling

Bombs


Hands of those who has the

Powers crushes origami paper

Forms


A box with two boards

Angled; coming together at

Peaks


The hand that builds is

Also the hand that smashes

Bricks


Rows of ice-cream planks

Cemented by crystal UHU

Glue


Just as heads on pillows lie

Premature walls; a fist crashes

Through


A yawning abyss swallows

Exclusive


Before the Gone becomes

Intrusive


Fertile land and pregnant bushes

Wonder


Why claws unearth the Never Rested from

Under

crissy: Awesome work. The characters are so beautifully flawed and easy to relate to. The protagonist Bethany Hill is a woman that I would definitely want to meet in real life.

eboniprice96: This is a really deep poetry novel but I love it

jenneyescoto: I'm only six chapters in, yet I'm already hooked. It didn't start too slow nor too fast. It has just enough background information to keep the plot going in a decent pace. There are just some minor grammar mistakes and phrasing that could be easily corrected. Other than that, I'm really enjoying ...

Laraine Smith: I was also a victim of verbal, physical, and sexual abuse by my father. One time, he threatened to beat me with a belt. This story enabled me to talk about it. Thank you. :)

graceeming: I thought the whole story form the beginning was captivating, it really gave you the hunger that you were longing for in a story. Yes the end was not something that I enjoyed, but I recommend this to anyone that enjoys fantasy of this type.
