    this is the first poem i have written in 8-10 years. i think its pretty straight forward, obvious but i am proud of it. i am trying to get it published but do not know where to start. help?

    Feel the grip
    the strength in your hand
    feel yourself
    the anger, the despair
    the choke of the darkness
    move with quickness,
    forget your logic
    tense, cramped
    pull and relase
    release your self from fear
    from the world from the pain
    from memories
    from a haunting day
    and a restless night
    release your anger
    so that happiness may find its way
    that apathy may depart
    the once beloved emptiness
    the great alternative
    a lonley man's only marriage
    a sad man's only hope.

    I like your poem. I'm not sure where you're from, but in North America, there are books that have lists of publishers that accept submissions from authors. You could go to the library and ask the librarian. He/she would probably know what reference books would help you in your search for a possible publisher. Wishing you good luck, and hoping to see more poems and writing from you...:hug:

    Dear Normaljoe,

    I like the allusions in your poem. I do wish you all the best in publishing it and your other work. I too am looking forward to seeing more of it as well. So glad you found your "voice" again..
