Silent A

They call me Silent A—

Who am I? They ask and don't ask

Slithering into a discussion about

School, politics, what happened on the news—

While everyone gazes for a reaction,

Do they look concerned? What are they thinking? Do they know?

But you can't seem to get out of the dazed,

Confused state I put you in.

I come when you least expect it—

In the middle of a bar,

The music pumping, juices flowing

Through your body.

The heart starts pounding,

Panic sets in like a

Storm crossing the horizon.

You look around, making sure no one notices.

In the middle of the night—

3am as silence fills the air,

Coming off of sleep meds and

Mixture of Vodka Tonics and Merlot,

Anything to keep the mind

At an altered state of nowhere and beyond.

But I’m screaming at you,

The toxicity won’t keep me away.

I'm the one who kills—

Friendships, relationships, your purified mind

Keeping you away from what you love,

What you don't love.

Standing in that darkened corner,

Waiting for that next high off of me.

They call me Silent A—

You can't see me, they can't see me, but I see you.

CotW #66: Write about the biggest lesson life has taught you.
Written by JRose

Nothing is Forever

Charles Chaplin once said “Nothing is permanent in this wicked world, not even our troubles.” This quote is one that I can both agree with and understand.

As a child, I lived in a word that was shattered by a person that was suppose to protect me. Living in an abusive environment ruled by alcoholism and violence; I often found myself feeling alone. As you grow up you shelter yourself of any pain, any love, any care. You think "It's always going to be like this." But... time passes by. Circumstances change and you learn from your experiences.

Life is about growing and changes and learning about who you are, what you want to be, and where you will be when you're gone. What have you taken from this world? and What have you given back to it?...

You have good memories, you have bad memories. All of these are experiences and moments that pass and won't last forever. Life also has an end. But for me it is what you do with your life that counts. While nothing is forever I think that change is good because you're always growing and learning. How can that be a bad thing?

Write a poem using the words "remember" and "forget" at least once, with one at the beginning and one near the end.
Written by Vinhies in portal Poetry & Free Verse

Be remember as a

Be a fearless government

Be a fly like a bee

Be a crow with dark black feathers

Be a strong man with huge muscles

Be a weak man with thin like a pen

Be a animal with walking footsteps

Be a crazy to be successful

Be a car fuel with petrol

Be a photography with a focus lens with a snap to shot

Be a camera to shot video with a button

Be what you are to be inspired in your heart

Be a happy of kindness

Be a fear of anger

The power in you

Fear of fearless to make a strategy of the struggle

Life is a roulette of a game of weakness

Dove from the crow of the spiritual of eye

Master of to the slave made power by everyone

Stories made by others who are non of style

One year is 3 mouths of to 6

Love meaning one heart together made by two

Positive is a fly bird negative is a walking animal

Friday Feature: @JamesMByers

It’s Friday. It’s a good Friday. And it’s actually Good Friday! Of course, every Friday we hungrily delve into a Proser's life in our Friday Feature. This week is no exception, yet is exceptional, as we are finding out all about a Proser that many of us know and love, but want to know more about. He actually answered our questions a while ago, but silly me (Paul), didn't post it for some reason! Please be upstanding for JamesMByers!

P: What is your given name and your Proser username?

J: Greetings Prose. I'm James Matthew Byers. You guys know me as @JamesMByers.

P: Where do you live?

J: I reside in Wellington, AL. What's special about that? Wellington, New Zealand happens to be where Peter Jackson filmed much of The Lord of the Rings films. I'd like to think of my home as a displaced component of the Shire. After all, our dog is named Arwen … My wife and two of my four children live with me in our above ground “Hobbit hole.”

P: What is your occupation?

J: By day, I'm a mild mannered middle school teacher. But when the sun sets, the mask appears. Then I am James Matthew Byers, writer, poet, and illustrator. Outside of my day job, I'm on the crew at Stitched Smile Publications, LLC as their resident illustrator.

P: What is your relationship with writing and how has it evolved?

J: Writing has been an essential element for most of my life. I've been crafting stories and illustrating them since, believe it or not, age three. In sixth grade I had the pleasure of being introduced to poetry via Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken.” It altered the course of my life forever. I began writing songs and poems. I wrote novellas. I illustrated everything. Through education and practice, I have evolved into a focused poet who utilizes rhyming mechanisms to primarily express what's in my soul. I've grown leaps and bounds with the use of meter. I wrote my first rhyming tale my senior year in high school. We had to construct a story similar to Chaucer’s style in “The Canterbury Tales.” I fell in love with combing story telling and rhyming. The rest, as they say, is history.

P: What value does reading add to both your personal and professional life?

J: Reading is why I'm here. I've been an avid reader my whole life. I taught middle school English and reading for ten years. Staying in books increases your vocabulary. It also teaches how plot devices are applied and how characters grow and change in their development. I've read nearly every DragonLance novel out there. Lewis and Tolkien are influences. There are so many! I'm an advocate for people to visit the classics, like “The Picture of Dorian Gray,” “Dracula,” “A Princess of Mars,” and so many other wonderful maps we all need to follow. I read to relax, and professionally, I read to stay relevant. As a writer, you must possess “withitness.”

P: Can you describe your current and future literary ventures?

J: Currently I'm working on several projects for Stitched Smile Publications. I've got a rhyming story called “The Secrets That We Keep” in their latest anthology. It's called Unleashed: Monsters Vs. Zombies. I've also got anther mini epic called “Killer Jelly Beans from Outer Space” in a collection of Easter themed horror tales called Collected Easter Horror Shorts. It's something that a wonderful fellow named Kevin J. Kennedy put together. And there will be sequels to my current release, Beowulf: The Midgard Epic. In May, my poem, “The Dinner Fly,” will be in Weirdbook Magazine issue #35. I'm also going to be in an upcoming issue of Grievous Angel. (http://www.urbanfantasist.com/grievous-angel) The poem is titled “Conundrum of the Irish Sea.” As far as posts here at Prose, the skies the limit. I'll be crafting some nifty story poems, entering challenges, and offering a few surprises.

P: What do you love about Prose?

J: Prose has risen to the top of my favorite social media outlets. This is where I've found my tribe. I enjoy encouraging other writers and poets. I enjoy sharing my work with a community who get it; get me. I'm plugging it like crazy on all my social media venues. I wake up excited every day to see new faces and old friends publish their works. You can't get that kind of excitement just any where. I'm still I awe that I've won three of the weekly challenges. What do I love about Prose? EVERYTHING!!!

P: Is there one book that you would recommend everybody should read before they die?

J: There are so many great books! The classics would be an easy go to, but I'm going to plug a literary hero of mine. J. Robert Kings “Hellmaw: The Incubus Tweets” is my sacrificial lamb. It's out now from The Ed Greenwood Group. (Onder Librum) It's hip, relevant, and quite humorous. This generation would get it, and for reading to be relatable conquers many battles in the most simplistic of fashions. The protagonist/antagonist, Frank Demonkowski keeps you in stitches. I'd like everyone to laugh hardly as they go gently into that good night …

P: Do you have an unsung hero who got you into reading and/or writing?

J: My senior English teacher, Marie Duncan, definitely played a critical role in who I am today. She's my friend on Facebook. Recently she celebrated her eightieth birthday. I'm so happy she's getting to see me break into this wonderful industry!

P: Describe yourself in three words!

J: Enthusiastic, poetic, unique

P: Is there one quote, from a writer or otherwise, that sums you up?

J: “To a young heart everything is fun.” – Charles Dickens

P: Favourite music to write and/or read to?

J: I'm into so many facets of music. If I'm reading or writing, I primarily stick with soundtrack scores. Conan the Barbarian is a fave. I also love The Last of the Mohicans. Anything John Williams will do. When I illustrate, I alternate between classical, symphonic metal, and Garbage. I've created many entries into the art world while thumping along to “Version 2.0.”

P: You climb out of a time machine into a dystopian future with no books. What do you tell them?

J:

Once upon a time we had to write our stories down.

Now you have no books that I have noticed in your town.

What's a book? I'm glad you asked- I'll fill you in right here.

Paper bound containing words, they filled the mind with cheer.

Some expressed a broken heart, and some expressed its joy.

Some related grown adults, and some a girl or boy.

Some expressed adventure and some told a tragic tale.

Some invoked emotion and some helped us to prevail.

Some taught lessons granted and some talked about the past.

Books were lovely in design; I'm sad they didn't last.

My idea birthing new- you have to make this right.

Grab some paper and a pen, and watch me shed some light.

Do you all tell stories? Yes, I thought you surely did.

Even if they come from someone who is just a kid-

Write them down and share their worth- bring back the written word!

This is what I leave with you; I hope I'm being heard.

I must go back to my home, but spread these newfound strengths.

Reading will evolve your kind and take you to great lengths.

Put it all together and have others take a look.

Now you know what you have missed; I've given back the book …

P: Is there anything else you’d like us to know about you?

J: In 2010 I graduate from Jacksonville State University with my Master's in Secondary English/ Language Arts Education. My bachelor’s degree is in liberal arts with a concentration in English/Lit. Having a solid background in poetry has molded me into a more prolific and precise writer. Before attending JSU, I took art courses from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, or better known as U. A. B. I've written several poetry compilations and have been published through JSU as well. I do have an unpublished novel that doesn't rhyme. I'm saving it. I just love telling tales that use verse to explore the situation at hand. I reworked “Beowulf” into rhyming iambic tetrameter. I mentioned the title earlier- Beowulf: The Midgard Epic. It stays true to the original in every way. The only difference is it rhymes. It also contains “The Wanderer” as an epilogue. I've always felt that classic tale was none other than Wiglaf, the young hero who aided Beowulf against the dragon. I did the cover and interior illustrations. I'm signed with a wonderful indie press called Stitched Smile Publications, LLC. I believe I mentioned I'm their resident illustrator earlier. They have many talented authors on board. In fact, several of them are here at Prose! If you're a fan of horror and dark fantasy, they've got what you need. I'm including the link to their website below. I'm a poet first, but I'm also a story teller and an artist. I want to share, motivate, and inspire the literary community abroad. I want to make rhyming hip again. I've always wanted to be a combination of Dr. Seuss and J. R. R. Tolkien. More than anything, I want to encourage everyone out there to follow their dreams. If you believe you can, you will. Thanks for having me, Prose!

Lesson learned

Today i learned that

People only do things for

themselves,

They say mean things about others

And tell someone how to live

And how to act in front of them and others

And talk smack all the time

so they

Can feel good about themselves,

So they can build their self esteem

And their selfishness,

It doesn't cross their minds

That words can cut someone

They don't see the pain

They inflict on others,

They are too blinded by their ego

They don't feel guilty or bad

They don't see that they are

Causing so much pain in someone,

They don't care about others

But themselves

They are stuck in their own world

They want people to worship them

And like them,

They want it to be all about them all the time

They want someone to follow their rules and perspective

They want someone to follow their ideas and opinions,

They want someone to be just like them,

They only care about things that will benefits them,

They are greedy, manipulative and a liar.

They will hurt others just to be the top dog,

They will hurt anyone to get their ways,

Sorry but i don't want to be like everyone else

I don't want to be like the world,

But i don't want to be liked

I want to be hated

I want to break the rules

Fuck the rules and

Fuck what's good in their eyes,

And I realized

I don't give a fuck

About their judgment,

I don't give a shit

What they don't like

About me,

From now on and forward

I will do things they won't like

I will the things they despises

I will do bad things,

I will do what i like

And i don't care

If they think it's a sin,

I don't care if they think

I'm a slut or a sinner

Or whatever

Labels they put and will put on me

I will do things

For my own pleasure

I will live for myself

Not for them,

I will think about myself

I will become selfish too,

Let them gossip

Let them hate

Let them talk,

I'm done being

thrown in their world

I'm done being in their eyes.

I only care about pleasing me

I only care about me.

I only care about the pain and the pleasure.

From now on,

It's all about me.

Let the hating games begin.

Lesson learned
Today i learned that
People only do things for
themselves,

They say mean things about others
And tell someone how to live
And how to act in front of them and others
And talk smack all the time
so they
Can feel good about themselves,
So they can build their self esteem
And their selfishness,

It doesn't cross their minds
That words can cut someone
They don't see the pain
They inflict on others,

They are too blinded by their ego
They don't feel guilty or bad
They don't see that they are
Causing so much pain in someone,

They don't care about others
But themselves
They are stuck in their own world
They want people to worship them
And like them,

They want it to be all about them all the time
They want someone to follow their rules and perspective
They want someone to follow their ideas and opinions,

They want someone to be just like them,
They only care about things that will benefits them,
They are greedy, manipulative and a liar.
They will hurt others just to be the top dog,
They will hurt anyone to get their ways,
Sorry but i don't want to be like everyone else
I don't want to be like the world,

But i don't want to be liked
I want to be hated
I want to break the rules
Fuck the rules and
Fuck what's good in their eyes,

And I realized
I don't give a fuck
About their judgment,
I don't give a shit
What they don't like
About me,

From now on and forward
I will do things they won't like
I will the things they despises
I will do bad things,

I will do what i like
And i don't care
If they think it's a sin,

I don't care if they think
I'm a slut or a sinner
Or whatever
Labels they put and will put on me

I will do things
For my own pleasure
I will live for myself
Not for them,
I will think about myself
I will become selfish too,

Let them gossip
Let them hate
Let them talk,
I'm done being
thrown in their world
I'm done being in their eyes.

I only care about pleasing me
I only care about me.
I only care about the pain and the pleasure.

From now on,

It's all about me.

Let the hating games begin.

Me, Myself, And I.

She's so selfish.

Because I think about myself.

You're such a B*tch!

Cause I don't love you and I told you instead of lying.

She's so into herself.

I love myself and I'm proud of me as a person.

What a tease!

I dress up to make myself confident. I do my hair and makeup for no one but myself.

Sometimes it's okay to love yourself. Make yourself proud. Do you. No one has the right to call you selfish and narcissistic. If you want to dress up or do your makeup or your hair or even all of the above, then do it. No one shall stop you. You aren't a tease for wanting to look good for yourself. Wear that skirt or that top or that dress. Do that winged liner, add fake eyelashes, heck even put on that red lipstick. Wear those boots or heels and curl or straighten your hair. Be confident in you. You're perfect both ways. You are certainly not a tease. You're not a B*tch if you don't like them back. You're Human. At least you didn't lead them on. You let them know l. Me, Myself, and I. That's what you focus on. Don't be stifled, be free.

Live Like A River

My mother used to say she had a shelf and a dresser with a single drawer. On the shelf was where she figuratively placed all the people in her life who have done her wrong and she left them there in hopes that they could move past their issues one day. And in the dresser was a single drawer where she placed all the people who have done her wrong whom she could never forgive. She said that drawer was locked and could never be opened back up for the people who were in it. That's the difference between her and I. I don't have a shelf and I don't have a dresser. I have a river. And in that river, if I bump into a rock or a branch, I just keep flowing. I don't carry the dead weight of people who have done me wrong on a shelf or in a drawer. I simply and gently leave them behind, understanding they are no longer meant for me, as I keep flowing up stream. Perhaps they'll catch up with me one day, or perhaps they'll catch a different current. It is not my decision to be made where others will go and if they will stay. I have no attachments to anything or anyone, for nothing is permanent.
