Atilla, I have never read Swells, now I will.
Your poem made me smile, your thoughtful tribute made me sad, but also brought home the vital role poetry plays in connecting people.
I hope your brave mum finds the peace she desires. x Carol

hi Emma, yeah be lovely to meet you, will be at Freed Up this thursday. Yes most of my poems do rhyme, the rhythm (all the hard words lol) helps when I'm performing live to remember them, well sometimes anyway!

I'll keep an eye out for any work you do, the feedback does help, just be careful with the spelling, it can make a massive difference and if its wrong it stands out mile and can ruin an otherwise good poem!

I even wrote a poem last year 'Queens English RIP' because of number of people who get you're and your mixed up, drives me mad! JeffX

Hi Yolande

Welcome to WOL. A good start. This works just as well on the page as it did at the Tudor. You make the reader feel the dilemma of choice - the complexity of possible outcomes, history, emotional hunger and more. Do keep posting

Hi Michelle,
Thanks for reading and commenting on Shhh - glad you liked it.
I do like 'We would be' - it's rather mournful. Look forward to reading more of your work.

Hi Dave,
Thanks for reading and commenting on Shhh - glad you liked it. Trusting someone with those little bits of your life/thoughts etc that have the capacity to hurt, can be scary - one reason, I suspect, that so many of us choose to do it through poetry!

I watched his piece on gays in the military but it was enough. i didn't really understand if he was having a go at 'gays' or the american military both or what. just not my thing, ok rant at me all you guys, tell me he's not this or that, maybe it's all too ironic and i just don't get it or maybe all the commments i read are right and he was a homophobic mysogynist. i don't know all i know is that i don't get it and maybe i'm in the wrong place here. i can't get my head around it and i don't think watching another hour of him will make much difference. i don't like discrimanation of anyone there's enough crap going on in the world without having a go at someone for thier sexuality or gender.i just don't get it and i'm not a christian or a gideon my tenets are if it harm none, do what you will.

Welcome to WOL - so glad you made that leap. If you get one fraction of the pleasure from poetry that you get from music, it will be very worthwhile.

A very heartfelt poem Yolande. I understand the background and surrounding scenery to this poem so it speaks to me. You performed this beautifully at the Tudor and Darren was right to comment on your near perfect diction!

I would love your suggestions Anthony. I struggled with the last line of the first verse, wanting it to be one syllable shorter but not managing it without losing the meaning.
Your lesser known nursery rhyme is incredibly sad and curiously insightful...

The picture Cynth is of me in hospital 15 years ago. Had an operation on my neck. Sounding off as usual.

PS the tag line: 'Here's Tom with the weather' is a loving borrow from Bill Hicks.

Hi Cat,
Janet's right - this is punchy! I think it would perhaps benefit from a careful re-read and a little judicious editing (most poems do), but maybe you want to keep that raw/straight-off-the pen feel.
Regards,
A.E.

Hi Gemma,
because i've heard and seen you perform, i had the advantage of being able to imagine you reading this one. I love the repetitions and think they would work really well for performance, especially with your accent.
Good stuff.

Without imagination how would we create such meaningful poetry?
