Having read through your work tonight, there is a lot of talent on display. Ignore the Herbert's of this world, they never got anywhere and they don't want you to. God bless, and keep up the good work.
I think it's obvious by some of your 'attention' you've received you are an enormous talent here. Some may not like the competition.....I hope you stay here at P/H and share more of your wonderful poetry. Not all people here are angry and mean. Sincerely, Mary
. Louise, I like your poetry, and find it refreshing. I like a person to speak their mind as you do. Anyone can cater to a person's ego, but you tell it like it is. Never be afraid to speak your mind, no mater what others might say, and remember it isn't always the quantity of poetry one writes, but the quality of each poem that really matters. Your 13 poems are great, and even better than my 85 poems.
I find your poetry suboptimal, your mental state questionable and your general demeanour on P/H of such pathetic juvenile anger that I am hereby inviting you to try your luck elsewhere.
If you think that your 'poetry' will keep you here, I know you are mistaken.
To me, you sound like a disgruntled Jew (no racial slur intended) who has not a chip on her shoulder but a load of manure of questionable origin.
Perhaps professional help would be the thing.
A Melancholy Song
A melancholy song A solitary sigh Sorrows sung so mournfully Of fleeting days gone by
How sweet this silent reverie So lovely, soft and clear Will hush the moments waning past The spectre's hour draws near
