This strikes so many chords within me, and brings to mind a song 'Another Day in Paradise'. You truly see between the cracks, Graham.


Twilight of Love

2006-10-15
So poignant, sad and brilliantly written.
"We, the companion of the spring,
At the autumn of our relationship,
Are, strangers still..."

Wow, wow and wow again!

You are dead on target, Zoya. As you know, you and I are at one with putting an end to all this mindless suffering and violence.
Veld

2006-09-23
This is a strong, mainliner of a poem, frig! Well done indeed - your contrasts are spectacular!

You Can't Take Away My Soul

2006-08-22
This is so true, dear Zoya - the ultimate 'bottom line' which no hardship, suffering, torture or indignity can reach.


Jared with one "R."

2006-08-22
This is so sad and nostalgic, and reminds us of all the decision points when we seem to have choices we later regret, but can do nothing to change. Thanks for this beautiful poem!


Beauty of your soul shines through [song]

2006-08-22
This is a great and inspirational song, Lizzy - wish I could listen to it!


Hold my hand, hold me up [i need someone to]

2006-08-22
Very good write, Liz - one that applies to most, if not all of us, I suspect.


Running Alone

2006-08-22
'Things that we wanted
Were not things we needed'....
This and everything else in this poem just jumps out and plays like a marching band in the emotional psyche. You are so very gifted and we are so lucky to have you share works like this with us!


Silent Love

2006-08-22
One of your best, ever, dear Morpheus! I think many of us who have been there and done that can relate so closely to your words of pain...stunning words that go straight to ones soul....


The Dreamer's Game

2006-08-22
This is just so beautiful - the imagery coming through (as always I feel as though I was there and could reach and touch things!) reminds me of an alltime favourite beginning 'season of mists and mellow fruitfullness, close bosom-friend of the rising sun'...Great stuff, Morpheus!


A hug

2006-08-22
I never let go, yet I feel free
Afraid that if I would
You would let go of me...

This is so clever, and so true. Nice, Peter!


Choices and chances

2006-08-22
This is such a great reflection on being unsure - the blue pill or the red one - damned if I do, damned if I don't. Excellent, Peter!


when i look into your eyes

2006-07-11
Brialliantly set out and very captivating, Matt - love your work!

Another absolutely beautiful write by our 'Poet of Love'. Congrats, Rik!


Would you?

2006-04-27
WOW!!!!! I can't top any of the comments below, but the anguish and pain cut right through me when I read this. There for you, now and always, dear J.


Happy Birthday Dad...

2006-04-27
Beutiful, dear Morpheus. Having lost both my parents, when their birthdays come around, I feel just like you. Be strong and there for you!


Four O'Clock

2006-04-27
OMG I can relate to this one, dear Morpheus! Sounds like a complete oxymoron, but I'm so glad it can be cured by surgery! Please if you have the time give me an update - have been away and offline.


ramifications...

2006-04-27
I can positively FEEL the rising pain and the fullness of your emptiness in these words of pain and regret following on your recent poems. It will not let go of you and tugs at you like quicksand....but like quicksand, it can suck you under, but it is not your time. I am there for you and send you a hundred good vibes every minute! A superb write!


Screaming, dreaming

2006-04-27
Dear friend, you miss her so very much and are screaming to be reunited. I am sure she hears you and will send her love to comfort you in the darkest hours. There for you, brother!


Bring me to her

2006-04-27
Gosh, Peter, this is so sad and so deep and I feel your pain as if it were my own, brother.

This must have been so hard to write - so stunningly clever - the contradictions are brilliant!


The five stages of grief

2006-04-27
Tragic and heartbraking - a road I have also walked, dear friend!


Mass Crime

2006-04-23
Oh, Zoya, you took the words out of my mouth! What I see before me on television is a stain of blood from the Mediterranean to the Black Sea and beyond....in God's name I pray for healing to the weeping sores inflicted in the name of caste and religion. Enough, PLEASE, enough!
