Meditation on Letter E

E is eternity that awaits us
the second part of us
the evil side,
always hungry
eating people apart by their fears.

E is the emptiness
that fills the broken ones,
the eyes blind by the lies
you tell yourself.

It’s the escape we long to find,
the entrance that will save us
from the execution.

It’s the end of everything,
the eclipse
to elimination.

Hi Danny, that's a cool meditation on the letter E!

I like the idea that E is eternity that awaits us!!

What a super exercise for students!

I took a wholly different tack with the LETTER prompt. Heck, I'm a rebel. ;-)

Nice poem, Danny. I like the way you've moved into the letter, feeling the words, the emotions of those words and the final 'end' is wonderful.

I like how the E is connected to eternity and Evil and it is on us to choose the one. Danny, you did well with this!

That's excellent, so many words beginning with 'e' appearing seamlessly in the poem.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
