I had submitted a poem back in August to www.poetry.com. Well, a few weeks ago I got a letter stating that it had won the Editor's Choice Award. This sounds good right? It went on to say that this poem would be published in a book for all the world to read. The catch? If I wanted to see my own poem in print, I needed to purchase the book for $59.95. Any other "gifts" I wanted to purchase ranged from $29.95 to $149.95. Yeah, I think not. I am adding the poem to this site. It wasn't even that good.
The rain is pouring down.
My heart is breaking.
I feel there is no oneto call my own.
I spend my time in tears.
Without you I am all alone.
I wish you were beside me,to calm me from my fears.
The rain feels so cold.
The chill runs through my body.
But, life goes on.
Or at least so I've been told.
Life is just a downpourof human emotions.
The way I feel now is something I've never felt before.
