Thanks for the kind words Clarissa. I really enjoyed writing this poem. I got a real buzz out of it, creating a vertual painting.

Wow!

That is really powerful and gives a real feel for the way psychiatric illness affects people. I really admire the writing and you perseverance if this is (as it seems) autobiographical. It made me cry (that was a good point).

It says much about my own situation but I've reached a point where I can no longer persevere and keep my own health.

I wish you the very best and thank you for sharing a lovely poem.

Hi Ralph,
This feels very special, with a lot more going on than the first two or even three readings will show. A lot of true emotive content within.

Thanks for posting this, it's made me think.

Pete,

Get tha ma to a doooo! Good for the soul!
Not a poem, a sharing of a welcome shift from melancholy to renewal. Remain renewed Pete.
Talent brings reflection and may be woe..but woa..you seem like a fun guy and eventhough times is tough for the many of us..sure you have what it takes to rise above the troubled times.

May things go good steadily, with an absence of pain and much good love bathed in warm light!

Bestest to you

Dreams may come and dreams may go, with thoughts mixed up inside your head, they come for a reason while you lie sleeping in your bed.

The brain needs to unfold its thoughts from the day, the month, the year, the release from out of the jumble head is just downloading, making clear, a path, a way, to carry on with yet another day, I hope that all your dreams will be good ones, and the bad ones stay away.

I too have them, but mine are mostly bad, I hate them when they happen, because they make me sad.

You say someone had sent your good dream, your spiritual needs amended, If this is so I thank them and hope you will remain contented.

Love mum,xxxxx

Dear Peachy! Hi Belinda, I like pt 2 of your Zombies series, as you know I really liked pt 1, is there going to be a pt 3 conclusion to what the Zombies are doing, that would be good! cheers Jeff X

ps thanx for your comment on 'when I'm down' I wrote it a few months ago, and although still relevant its not as bad now, the poetry helps! Must try that Zazen stuff! I did wonder whether your poem was a state of mind or real life based on your zombie stuff! Know where you're coming from good to know you're okay!

Thanks for your comments on my recent blogs.
The two suffragette ones were written with performance in mind and went down quite well at Wigan.
Pardon my ignorance but i really have no idea who Makowski is. I googled it and it gave me far too many Makowski names to choose from.

Hi Zuzanna

Thank you so much for your comments about my 'When I'm Down' poem, it was one that I wrote fairly easily through experience. I did write it a few months ago after a few difficult years. Don't worry though, things are a lot better now, although sometines its relevant.

Appreciate your concern though, take care, next one will be a bit chirpier (I Think!) Jeff X

Hello Zuzanna,
Mysterious goings on are happening all the time, everywhere. To actually feel the presence of a spirit can be very scary. Especially when it's cold.
Hope this isn't a reality poem from you.

You have some great lines in your writing. I particularly like th eopnein gones:
all the wild in it's wisp and brood.
fly nature in and scented skin.
fell silently her silk new bloom.

rolling tanks will lose their steel.
cut to the essentials - true poetry.
well done.

Welcome to the site. We did have a night going in Oldham and will probably have one again in the new year. Write Out Loud has an open mic coming up at the library on 9th October and you are welcome to take part. We are very newcomer-friendly.

Jeff, you always take the time to read our work and I'm happy to see you developing in your confidence and writing. I enjoy your work especially because of your musical passions. I am more inspired by good song lyrics than poetry, but then I think good song lyrics are poetry. I think that quality musicians and bands have a lot going for them in terms of poetic influence. Take Roger Waters for example.

Thank you for your kindness and sincerity and understanding.

Its of no surprise that you have so much love here Jeff.

Look forward to seeing you soon. I may get t the green rooms this Thursday.

Hi Belinda, hope you're okay over there!

I like this, it sounds like your mind is still stuck in the rat race of japan, well thats how it came over to me, great stuff!

Just one thing, I thought the line 'Got to do this and that' would sound better with the meaning and rhythm of the poem if it was 'Got to do this, got to do that' - see what you think, to alter login, click edit on your poem, amend it and then update entry.

Hope that helps, I've added a deep one today! hope you like it, let me know, take care Jeff X

Hi Richard this is good stuff, very sad obviously, no surprise there!!

Some great lines here and unfortunately I can identify with the sentiments.

Anyway, something spooky, I was reading this listening Echo and the Bunnymen. It was the album 'Evergreen' and as they say on there funnily enough - 'Nothing ever lasts forever', which I think I'll have for my funeral!

Don't worry I'm okay, although you might not think so when you read my latest poem! 'When I'm Down' - Hope you like it, keep up the good work, Jeff

Hi Julian

Good to see you at Wigan, I really enjoyed it. As I said then WOL has helped to change my life after after the last few years. I'm getting more involved now and know lots of others on the site as you know. I'd like to get involved more, like compering which we had a chat about etc.

I went to Sale on saturday with Paul and the others to help promote the Sale WOL night. That guerilla performing was more nerve wracking that my gig that night!

We got a few interested though, cheers Jeff

ps must do that email feedback to Paul about the profile/blogs/poems issue!!
