How I feel about Liam[cb]'s leaving
and how I don't understand people's
narrow-minded jealousies that they
have to put down and upset other people.
I love all my friends here on PoetBay
both the one's already met and the one's i'm yet to meet.


Angry understates the way I feel,
like storm-tossed waves
pounding the sandy ocean floor,
I scream out loud
like banshees howling on the ferocious wind.

Upset doesn't even adequately discribe it
the tears streaming at the injustice of it all,
I collapse in a heap
like a pile of discarded clothes
and bawl my eyes out on the carpeted floor.

I love you all
like brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers
you're more then friends,
more like rare diamonds in the rough
and I hurt when you get hurt by jealous others.

Words can't explain
this understatement of mixed emotions,
I just know that true friendship
joins us in ties of hope
accross the different oceans.

I think your poem speaks for all that new Liam, an incredible poet and your anger is justified, jealousy can cause people to do terrible things which later they will usually regret.

Liz--this is a wonderful poem, there is so much vibrance to it--I see colours of emotions running throughout..jealosy is a green monster..

Liz this is such a beautiful poem that explains so well what our community is all about. I have found an ocean full of artistic beauty, knowledge, and interest here. Friendships of the heart through words are so very special. Learning about others, sharing concerns, happiness, sadness, good times and bad times are what family is all about. I have learned from many and hopefully have taught a few. I have bonded with a diverse and enriching group of people from all over the world. I am proud to be apart of this marvelous site. I am blessed to be here.
