Another beautiful poem.


And so?

2022-07-03
I know how you felt when you wrote this,
I've been in this sort of a slump most of my life.
It's strange how you can feel this way with friends and family around you. Thanks for sharing regards Alan

Don't stress too much about this. Keep applying to
Other jobs. Who knows if you find one you really enjoy.
If they call you at least it's your choice to accept or reject.
Good luck in life my friend hugs and kisses xxx regards Alan.

LOOKING IN TO THE MIRROR

2022-06-19
It's when the day comes you glance at the mirror and think
For the first time. God I look old. Happened to me today.


I'M TALKING!

2022-06-19
Yes Ken. I don't know if it's because our minds work on the same level, It's as though what we have to say is less
important. Lived through this All my life. Regards Alan.

Interesting concept forgetting the laws of physics.
If we all travelled in the same direction.
Could we slowly speed up or slow down,
Probably not the earth. Maybe a lonely planet.
Without the gravitational pull of another planet.
Thanks for posting. Regards Alan.

Health care systems seem to be breaking down
All over. To many people not enough doctors or nurses.
Were I live you never see a doctor covid changed that.
Hospital 6hour + . So sorry your still waiting to be seen,
With every day that passes your one day closer
to be seen, Cold comfort I know. Hopefully you
won't have to wait much longer.
Hugs and kisses my friend. Regards Alan


Awesome, doesn't come close

2022-06-13
I've only just discovered how good your poems are,
So far I've only read a few, liked all of them from your first poem to your last one. (Awesome doesn't come close ) Love the idea of catching a bird song and putting it in my pocket for later, When we were young we used to do that with kisses.
Think I lost all of mine, Had a hole in my pocket. look forward to reading the others..
Regards Alan.


We saw it

I agree whole heartedly with Tom, love the thought of free-range children running around. Expescially when i think my parents, Would have preferred to have tide their children down.
Always seems to be someone maleficent in our past.
That tries to alter the status quo.

SLEEPLESS IN MY BATTLE

2022-05-30
Sinking ones teeth into a pair, To feel the secretions as the flesh begins to tear, When will this carnage end. Are you sure!
Your not a pescatarian vampire my friend. Also not being able to sleep at night, vampires sleep during the day.
Joking aside loved the poem. Allen, regards Alan.

GENOCIDE IN CANADA

2022-05-28
A nation of a lost language, the indigenous people were not allowed to use their own language in schools.
Most of the children have forgotten the way of their parents.
Sounds as though genocide is just another way of dealing with their problem, sickening eh. Ken
Regards Alan


Impossible to Ever Leave Behind

2022-05-28
Hi FM Wish I could have been there to take your pain away.
Perpetrators of this are vile, A child is just a child who deserves more from so called grown ups then to be abused.
To break a child's trust is the worst. Hope those men got
What they deserved. Love hugs and kisses my friend
Regards Alan.

Hi Ann it's strange I've felt alone most of my life,

A Con is a Con

Hi Allen. Think I knew someone like this,
Who was canny with money. But
He didn't call a spade a spade,
He called it a shovel
Regards Alan


An Eternal Love

I'm certain we will all meet up with the one's we love,
The feelings we have are never lost.
Sometimes just hidden away, in the back of our minds.
Thanks for sharing. Regards Alan.


Lonely

2022-05-07
As a relative newcomer to poetbay.
I find that poems like this speak to me,
On oh so many different levels.
Having lost so many loved ones myself,
Still that's the curse of growing old.
When my train comes in,
They will probably need me to Stoke the boiler.
Thanks for sharing Allen.

You & I

2022-05-07
I always wonder why people treat us this way,
I think sometimes they crave being in charge.
They'll never have what you have, self esteem.
Have a good night's sleep and a great weekend.
My friend F.M (hey that rhymes)
Huge hugs and XXX regards Alan


THE FEW FROM OH SO MANY

2022-05-07
I borrowed part of your title,
As I go through poems I like what I read.
Ok occasionally I borrow a line,
I always ask first but not at this time.
Your immortalized in poetry,
But not for the first time.
Regards Alan


What's That About?

2022-05-03
Oh I'm so offended, That you were offended. By the one who was offended, By the person who wasn't offended. I could crush a grape. Hugs & XXX my friend F.M.
