    Default First poem with a new collaboration guy, one that is already a top free verse poet

    A Robert Lindley and Lawrence Sharp collaboration
    10-11-2018

    Poetry Note-
    I am very pleased to have found a new and fantastic writing partner
    that presents fantastic free verse poetry in its top form. This our first collaboration was a true pleasure and great joy to create. We both found ourselves in tune, as we worked to present this dark free verse poetry, that depicts the darker side of this world, past wayward youthful experiences and a look at what even today our youth face in this unforgiving and to oft deceptive, corrupt and tempting world that rewards darkness, and giving in to wanton desires.
    The magnificent verses my writing partner contributed to the creation of this piece sincerely awe me- as I am learning of the depths, beauty, great and high artistic value in creating and reading free verse poetry, Both my thanks and my appreciation come from a sincere and very appreciative heart.
    As I Plot Just One More Day

    Desperate as the waking at blackest dawn
    I seek only moments within eternity,
    for the day upon me is long
    and I do not ponder its end

    Forever that blackened door beckoned
    in tones of promising delights
    who can know what lies in its beyond
    perhaps a cure for the world's pains
    I walk halls leading to its hurts
    echoes that resounded as if playing
    with no malice, future screams at my hesitation
    as I plot just one more day
    as I hide my lusts just one more day

    Decadent as the lust of gloomiest noon
    I am immersed in the consummation
    and overpowered in the contest, yet hopeful
    that still I may embrace eternity's devious charm

    Never ending cycles eat into a wanton soul
    they are all too familiar
    and their boredom becomes a chain
    a rasp in my dying breath
    I hear its rhythm and each echo speaks
    O' that parade of desires hides deep within
    as the dark expands its borders
    as I plot just one more day
    as I hide my lusts just one more day

    Dire as the languishing at darkening dusk
    I seek an eternity of moments
    to sate my lust and quell my rage,
    to forgive and to be forgiven

    This our first collaboration was awarded Poem Of The Day honors today..
    A truly great start to our collaborative efforts, and I am very glad that they chose to award this recognition under my co-writer's name, referencing it from his home page at our poetry site...
    As his free verse influence and expertise makes this poem a fine one, IMHO. -Tyr
