I have found
that there are
no certainties,
nothing that
one may truly
claim as their own.

Torn from my hand
was your heart,
and you have sought
to devour my soul
through manifestations
that have charred
the walls of my mind.

-Brian Shuffett

Another piece that was written on a short fifteen minute break...

After reading many of your works before, it has convinced me that your work is becoming quite contemporary. I just feel at ease when reading it -- everyone can relate in some way, shape, or form to your work, because it's simplicity packed with power.

Some readers feel the need to use archaic language and whatnot to make for a powerful poem, and I can say I am guilty for that, or maybe it's just my style, I don't know.

Anyways, your writing gets better and better each read. Thank you for sharing!

Accepted to the Group.

yay short breaks! you do good work in short times.
indeed, there is nothing permanent on this world. when we accept that, it's easier to let things go.

NO matter what may be taken from you, the words can be claimed. It might not be enough, but some days it is.

I really admire the way that your work can be related to by most people, that is a very important quality, it makes your work relevant. Well done on this my friend...

What is with you? You paint such compelling, exquisite masterpieces, and all of them convey stirring emotions. You know how to whisk your life experiences out of the air and splash them onto the screen flawlessly.
