My Poems  


A poem by Beverly Stock.

I'm back, Just where I want to be.

Hooray, I survived

You and me.

Our pace hot and coarse,

Wanting and craving.

Your demands

Much too verbose.

I lost the addiction

I’ve regained control

No longer do I

Believe your contradictions.

Your affection, your meddling

And your friction,

All interfered with

Any possible remission.

I see now with much

More perspective.

Who you are, and

Your consuming objective.

Beverly Stock is an American poet living in St. Louis. Her work has been published on, at, and on the Webzine Lighten Up Online.
