Slowly slippin down a rainbow
I stumble on my dreams as I go
My memories follow close behind
Stars chart my place in time
Velvet vows cast in vain
Mahogany tears riddle like rain
I-vory smiles disguise my pain.

At a distance
I held you in my eyes
Such a treasure
What a pleasure
The warmth of a sunrise
Take my mind
Then drift away
Hear my hearts
She's hard to find
Steal my thoughts
My ray of sunshine

REGINALD CHAPMAN'S PEN-PAL REQUEST
I'm not sure of what to say or how to
begin…I'm in my direct appeal stage…
I have an interest in writing poetry. I would like to further that, to attract others to develop the same interest. To collaborate with them and maybe publish some of my work in a beneficial way. Also short stories - fictional and drama. I'll do my best to respond to all letters as I can afford to. If there be any visits keep in mind that we're only allowed five a month. Also Menard is near SIUC but there are no bus or train stops. It at all possible I would ask for help in completing my college degree. Like assistance, tutoring, or direction. Menard discourages any higher learning but I hear its possible. Also I have a book on signing that I'm studying and would like to learn more. So far I only know, the alphabets, a few numbers, and about fifty words,
I guess this is my avenue of reaching out, as of now I'm trapped on Menards death row. With hope, by faith, knowing this will be only temporary. I'm 29 years old, 6'3 and 202 lbs. Amongst writing I enjoy playing chess, cards, dominos, and mostly when the weather is good basketball to stay fit.
OK ! I'll end here….hope to hear from you soon.
