Pure Hell

by James Collins (author's profile)



"Pure Hell"

Each day I fight off cold emotion
That tries to steal my drive to live
This emotional twister -is out of control
It's been 51 years of Pure Hell

With home made cards I play Solitary
Trying to ignore my pear like body -
Of withered skin
Just cells away exists Charles Manson
Lord knows he's flipped a card or two
I'm stuck on pause
Is there a pill for being stupid

I transcribed your poem "Pure Hell".

First, let me say thank you.

I think the word "haunting" describes it well. It's something that I will remember.

The use of words with double meanings was clever and gave the piece an overall sense of togetherness.

Maybe a little bit more punctuation?

Keep writing
