My arch enemy is me...(Revisited)

Is he
the best ever?
His subliminal messages
and delivery are very clever.
I weather his storms of words
whenever, and shower out wetter.
He smiles like cheddar and
cheeses for the camera.
But I'm like whatever, never
do I doubt being even better...

Looking at the
reflection inside of the
mirror of memories past
coming nearer. I see
a bit clearer while viewing
the glimmer from the sun's
shiny shimmer from off of
the surface of the tiny river.
A champion and a winner
from November to November.
Colder than frigid Artic winters.
Far from a beginner.
I sit higher than the drug
empire in the city of Denver...

This round
 is for the pros who write their
style in prose. My obstacles are
seen within my opticles. I suppose
it's hard to expose the foe inside
of your soul so quickly you know.
So-so writing does not scroll or go
inside of the scope of my lens my
friends. A fight within tonight might
not make amends. It just may end up
a fight to the very end. Mice or men?
Written inside of my mind,
no pen. Inside I float within the
open of my own ocean, I swim
and suspend any other thoughts
caught upon a whim. The rapid
fire of my desire blows the doors
off the hinge. School is in session.
A weapon without question,
I move in rapid succession
to capture life lessons inside
of lines of progression with
connections connected until
their meaning is caught.
Holding the weight of a
mountain while kicking
rock. I shall forever
give it all that I've got.
The "Unbreakable"
"Mr. Glass"
invincible until
I drop...

Charles Johnson Claim this poet

Biographically I would say that this is the place where I share about me.Re veered as a someone with morals, values,and positive energy, inspiration, and responsibilities.My possibilities can't possibly be limited to nothing less than exquisite.Welcome to my page, and I'm glad you stopped to visit. A wizard with words, nouns and verbs, sometimes my proverbs are superb like a nerds. Nope let's kick that one to the curb...I use metaphors and similes by my lonesome or in assemblies if this is where you wish to find me anonymously.Now that you know just a little bit about myself....I say welcome to you once again, and please enjoy yourself:-) more…
