Eyes of Forgotten Innocence: Blink

Original Page

Experimental Poem

Here is another poem from my not-yet-selling book, Eyes of Forgotten Innocence.

The purpose of the book is to raise parents' awareness of the dangers of Internet stalkers and to raise money for organizations that help protect our children. See the links below for more details on that.

There are two ways to read this poem. The first is the simple, linear method, left to right, top to bottom. The second method is to first read the lines which are whole unto themselves and then to read the lines with the ellipses (...) as if one line finishes the one just before it.

It was just an accident, but I was looking for an uncategorized style of poetry. I actually came up with two in this book.

Please enjoy and remember, you can buy this book in PDF format from me or in paperback from any number of on-line and brick and mortar book sellers.

Here is the text as it can be read:

What is wrong with...

Nothing to say.

Eyes lingering on a visage.

...watching a child, unseen.

Unblinking, grows desire...

...hideous, misdirected desire.

Blink! Blink! Why...

I just can't stay away.

So, what's wrong?

...won't you turn away?

And the alternate:

Nothing to say.

Eyes lingering on a visage.

I just can't stay away.

So, what's wrong?

What is wrong with... ...watching a child, unseen.

Unblinking, grows desire... ...hideous, misdirected desire.

Blink! Blink! Why... ...won't you turn away?

Do you know?

Did you know that pedophiles often get toll free 800 numbers so their unsuspecting victims can call them without the parents' knowledge?
