Poem #1: Hearts of Stone

You stared straight into their eyes

As they smiled and laughed

You thought you were in for a wonderful surprise

But instead they threw you down a shaft

They left you in the park,

To ponder why

They left you in the dark

And listened to you cry

You know what it feels like

To eat your lunch alone

And ride home on your bike

Wondering if they all have hearts of stone

You how how awful it is

To know there’s no one to cry to

No one who says

Don’t worry I’ll help you

You come home every night

Praying that tomorrow will be better

But try with all your might

The pillow just gets wetter

So then you bury yourself in books

But only the ones that end well

Because all of the crooks

End up in a cell

But even books aren’t enough

To take you far away and make you forget

Your life has none of that fluff

Only a feeling of regret

And you know it’s not your fault

And you can’t help but wonder why

They love to rub your wounds with salt

And cut your wings so you can’t fly

And you end up pleading

For those monster to leave you alone

But didn’t you know that evil never stops feeding

On those poor hearts not yet made of stone.

Richard D. Cooper: I wish I could write poetry like this. It's clever because it also tells a story, too. I like the flow of it, the way sentences slip together as they should. Very good indeed. I have also started to read your others works, and will review them when finished. Keep going. Never stop.

maxniederhofer: Kara,I loved this. The one suggestion I would make is to show me, don't tell me. E.g."Now look at your skin / It is beautiful / You are beauty pure."It might be better to use more evocative imagery and language to make me feel, i.e. truly comprehend, the pure beauty, rather than telling me it is ...

Barbara Ivusic: I really loved this poem. Perfect use of imagery to outline the digital age. I loved the image of the olive branch and how it is posted for all to see but no one can touch it. Everything you describe is so true that it has become common knowledge yet no one acknowledges it anymore. I look forward...
