  • POEM: I Lost My Heart A Time Ago by Valerie Dohren (12/22/2014 3:55:00 AM)

    Your heart is still there Val, beating, waiting, buried under Autumn's debris, kept safe 'til spring when it will poke through and regrow into a beautiful flower. Hang in there, keep writing.

  • POEM: Lending My Voice for Paul by Daniel Brick (12/21/2014 7:19:00 AM)

    'The light refuses to enter your narrow room but clings like a trellis'
    A wonderful opening line. So perfect that I am unable to picture your poem without it. A doorway that invites the reader to step from one world to another.

    How cruel it seems that at any point, without warning, our lifes can be changed forever. Our bodies no longer functioning the same way whilst beyond our control relationships change. We are slung from a world of comfortable familiarity into the great unknown. A new world where we have to learn how to adapt and attempt to try and understand why.

    I wonder if your friend briefly knew the best of both worlds, if he held a fleeting glimpse of paradise suspended between supposing and knowing.

    A touching read Daniel.

  • POEM: ~A Knife Disguised~ by E Nigma (12/14/2014 5:08:00 AM)

    This is so very sad. 'It is never easy tracing your steps in denial' speaks to me as though of regret. To go back and know the truth of the wrongs we have done and feel the full weight of each one as it lays could never be considered easy.
    'A moments tasting lingers awhile, ' and it does. It coats both the tongue and mind, exploding into a myriad of choice. Do we ignore and starve? Do we nurture and feed?
    'Where every needle finds a home, ' such a powerful line that invokes images of drug use be it recreational or dripping with the evil of big pharma, the lonliness of being lost among haystacks unseen unknown.
    'Like the sad song in a mute's eyes never sung, ' everywhere I look I see these eyes. The streets are full of such eyes, this is the saddest line of the poem for me.
    'And a fisher waves goodbye,
    While thinking all along that it was hello' a heartbreaking scene for anyone who has ever reached out.

    Hi Richard,

    try Forward Poetry (just google their name) they run competitions etc and don't seem to mind if the poem has already been published online. They are what some would call a vanity press, however they have published my poems in three seperate books even though I haven't bought any of them. PM me if you want any more details.

    saying it feels like hell with an o on the end but I thought I had better introduce myself.

    I am just a normal bloke doing normal things. I don't meditate, partake in any new age practise nor do I go around worrying ghosts.

    My faith is held in my belief that we are all poets and we are all vibrationary beings. As such we have the power to create. When I am wandering about my day to day I try to make sense of me and what surrounds me. My poems are the result of that process. I look forward to bumping into you and yours.
