Janet, thank you for your lovely comment, and the simple answer is, I don't really keep up with them all, their names just seem to remain like faint memories of times I'd like to remember.
And Jeff, the 'Bench in Levenshulme' is probably not as exciting as you think!

Hi Pete, this reminds me of when a good friend of mine was depressed. She went to docs, i read that little tiny piece of paper with the tiniest writing about the side effects out to her.
As your prose shows, she'd thrown it in the bin.
My friend is an eternal pessimist and was sure to suffer every single side effect there was.
Happily, she tried what i suggested she do with the pills and we got through it together.
Love the depth and truths in this. love Janet.xx

What i'd like to know is how the hell you manage to keep up with 60 people on your contacts list.
Great descriptions though. It's made me want to do somat similar with those with the same name. (whose surnames i don't know.)
Great idea. i like this one. Janet.x

You have such a way with words Antonionioni.
"The end of the world is nigh." and all that rubbish. Put there to scare the living daylights out of us poor folk.
The lava i "saw" was very cleansing. Certainly nothing injured, maimed or murdered.
Your sonnet certainly kicked us in the imagination, that's for sure. That surely can only be a good thing?
lots o love and vivid imagination. Janet.xx

Welcome back Daniel. I hope things are better for you now.
Your poem is lovely. Shows that even in the tough times, there is a light at the end of our tunnels. That deep exhaling breath is kind of a relief as we see a way forward. Yet we know there's still a fair way to go.
I wish you well. love Janet.xx

The joys of wedded bliss. Ha! my ass!
Makes me glad i'm not married. Still gotta do those boring things like putting out the bin and whilst the carpet burns stung, the memory of how they came to be brings a smile to my face.
Enjoyed this one Pete. love Janet.x

The poem is beautifully written and to the point with the right feelings and emotions if comes to getting younger (refuse to use the word ‘older’)
It is a little sad thinking of missing the youth age, but there is no clock to stop the time.
Beautiful poem with the "phantom lover at the end brought a smile to my face."

You have been reading about the Final days in the Year 2012 or what? -- Smile.
There are predictions of the End of times and that picture I had in mind reading your poem. Well done with a Religious twist to it as well as the picture of Naples.
Magnificent Vesuvius with lava is bad for those who live near.
I like this poem...Very creative!

The poem is well written - It could be interpreted as a nightmare. It could be a real life event. The write is thought provoking and has deep psychological base. There is s quote - " One shall never go to bed with out of reconcile with another because one my never have another chance to see that person again - life happens"
I believe in kindness and not angry feelings in every day of life so if I die will have no regrets. This attitude works for me. It is easier to live with a smile on my face.
Thank you for sharing your feelings
In this poem...Great job!

Hi Pete, gripping stuff, yet sad reality and vividly described. I read somewhere that in the USA 13 billion prescriptions are issued each year, thats an average of one a week for every person in the country.
Frightening, but you've given an insight to it with this. I believe getting off them is worse than illegal drugs or alcohol, must be an absolute nightmare, well written Jeff
Wed 16th Jul 2008 00:08
So romantic Pete.
Love Janet. No explanation needed.

Hi Zahi, yeah I like it, very spiritual and a thing that lots of people experience. I used to say you only live once but as you put it like that, I'm not sure! great words, Jeff
Tue 15th Jul 2008 23:59
Very sensual and beautifully written Sandre, like the last 4 lines especially, Jeff
Tue 15th Jul 2008 23:55
Powerful stuff, have to admit, it's a bit over my head too- doesn't take a lot! Sounds good stuff though all the same! cheers Jeff

Hi Emily, very clever idea, 'Bench in Levenshulme' sounds interesting!! Jeff

Hi Emma, welcome to the site, I really like this, sounds a bit of a tear jerker, so sweet yet so sad for obvious reasons, thanks for sharing. I had a quick look at the others, good stuff, look forward to more, best wishes Jeff

Hello again Zahi, between the hours of 2 and 4am is when the spirits find their way to us more easily. The stillness of those hours and when we are most relaxed in our beds.
This is a beautiful way of expressing the regrets of harsh words spoken in haste and wanting to put it right about how one really feels.
It is said that once we pass over to the spirit world, forgiveness is the first thing we learn to do automatically. Personally, i hope to be able to do all that before i "die."
Tue 15th Jul 2008 23:30
Although i really haven't a clue what you're trying to say in this one Antonionioni, i did get a strong image of red, fiery lava spilling out across a vast space in time. The desert of Arabia?
Somehow that doesn't fit but it was the first thing which sprouted into my very stupidly thick brain today.
Tue 15th Jul 2008 23:22
Ooh Sandre, erotic dreams?
Sometimes they're better than the real thing.
I'll let you know when i next have the experience.
Love the poem by the way.xx

Omigod, what a choice turn of phrase Darren. At least by breathing in and out we're still alive!!
Tue 15th Jul 2008 22:35
The rhythm is clear and carried along with some alliteration, which I haven't heard too much of in your previous work, Sandré.
I too can get a little hung up on the age 'thing'. My testicles and scrotum are looking like how I imagine those of an old man would look. I'm just glad that us men are not discriminated against because of the shape of our 'nads. Maybe we are? I shall write to the 'Minister for Genitalia and Spelling' in the morning...

That's great. They promote discussion and poke the embers of creativity with burnt nobbly sticks.
How about a poem or three?

Again, original thinking. Your creativity is bringing something new to the table.
"I don't understand". Is this not four words
if we count the contracted negation?!

Thankyou for your comments. I read your poetry and enjoyed it all...it's sometimes difficult to hear how the writer would read it, but I could hear your voice in it. I especially like 'samples' because it's so true that people find it so hard to drop their defences and it reminded me of a Gil Scott-Heron track...'When you are who you are"

Hi Tomas - not sure I have a style; certainly not one I could name! I have no idea what Standard Habbie means - it sounds like half a 'knock knock' joke! Regret I don't do any links - a bit like the chip-shop that doesn't cash cheques? But I see we write on similar topics so if I did - you would be there. (:o) Regards.

Very nice poem, I agree with the others. So many gutters and kerbs to hold hands with. The pavement always forgiving, except to females in pumps.Those neon cloud lips to chase after and kiss, the drunken eyes and constant crys, caused by problems in the minds eyes. Yep I like this poem,made me feel like I was on dope, and Im never on dope, good to have a contact high from your words at times!

This one is on a lighter side, well written poem of yours. I could picture you listening to these noises from upstairs...Then the silence so you could take a look if she finally sleeps.
Wonderful memory, she is going to read your poems at latter stage of life. It is like a beautiful portrait from her childhood. Nice write!

very nice poem. life and death are in a constant circle, and Im sure we all have in one life time or another been friends, sat in a bunker at war time with each other,been married, been parents to each other, you name it! Very exciting really,I figure it this way, I have known you a long time, but even longer then we have been alive, but even longer then forever, and this friendship will never end, as life never ends, we just get recycled, each life a lesson,ah the excitment of life, what a blessing to have more then one! great poem!
