Poetry Slam New and Old

A decade of poetry. Its been flowing through me this last week. I used to use the internet to outlet my feelings. I guess today is no different. You can blame my dreams.

Old: 2003 - 2004 Valley High Literary magazine page 23. Art Work: Tristen Ervin

New: 2-3-13
 Reflections shine full
Stardust smiles at me through the fog
I saw into your window
all intentions and energies all in one wave
shallow plexie glass
a flash of truth
I expected more than just that 
scene from a horror movie
lost expectations a must 
in god I dont trust
Dont expect just lust
~Athena Mansfield
