Very profound and sad write. Unrequited love toughs on my heart strings-well written with fantastic flow poem, pleasure to read.
"Too weak to feel the storm hovering above
an obstruction shattering below
Failing to see where its path has taken me
I am soon crawling on fragmented glass yet driven blood running thin with tears
being shed upon my palms"
I could picture the pain of the writer in this particular stanza...GREAT POEM!

I love this poem so much. I adore the simplicity of the poem structure, which contrasts so beautifully with the philosophical content. And the last line almsot screams out. Beautiful.

Hi Lenford--It is good to hear from you..Also about the history of slavery. It brings kind of a bitter taste to me.My feeling are soft in my heart of other people sufferings. Still I am sensitive about such subject. I do believe that Planet Earth has enough of Goods to supply each group of people, it does not matter of the race or the Nationalities.I am against slavery always will. So the book you referring to is the "BELOVED"- I will check this book. Thank you for sharing so much knowledge about this subject....Zuzanna

Lenford- you brought a lot of memories in this writing. It happened that I was traveling across Canada by train too. But when visiting Europe it happened that I was in Warsaw then Paris on my way home to Canada, With the transfers in Heathrows Airport. Did you fly to Warsaw and then transfer there to take a train to TORUN ?
The picture of the train still reminds of the past.
Like you said from Agatha Christie stories.You are very adventurous man. And your writing amazes.Thank you...Zuzanna

PS, I saw Roots when I was at school in 1975 - it had a big impact over here - it was a start too. Aley Hayley's book was overly dramatised, and even in 1975 I could not help thinking that it made slavery seem far more toerable for African than it actually was. The book is yet to be written on this subject...I know how I would tell it...Tony Morrisson's book is hearer the mark - having as her starting point a mother seperated from her child, and then benig haunted by the child's ghost....can't remember what it was called. Let me check on the net.................how could I have forgotten, it was called Beloved.
Tue 29th Jan 2008 22:16
Thanks for the comments. Yes, I am from the south - south Liverpool - and area called Toxteth. You may know of it, made infamous due to the "riots" in 1981 - we called them "uprisings" - it may sound grand, but they were defiance in the face of exclusion, racism and discrimination. Liverpool, after all was the Capital of the Slave Trade. My and a group of dedicated black observers wrote a book on this in 1997 called "Slavery: An Introduction to The African Holocaust".
I will submit the poem, would like to get up and tell it like it was and get people thinking about how our past impacts on us today

Interestingly spot-on there, Zuzanna.
I had not realised it myself: I have been reading a lot of modern Icelandic and Swedish poets - and I guess the scary Arctic cold has left its mark.
How astute you are!

ha... i love this one... simple and true... it's great... do you know i've had an idea for a slam poem running about in my head for a while now about how we wipe our arses with nature, eg.. with toilet roll that is made from trees.. it is a perfect analogy for the way humans view nature anyway... and we do wipe our arses on her...
oh i am in grumpy 'people are sh!te' mode today... :-(
Tue 29th Jan 2008 16:24
Belinda, your poem has strong message" I am a human'-As a human beings we are weak individuals. Quite often life imposes bariers and obstacles on its way, facing hardships each day.. Your words are precious and very profound.Yet the poem shows simplicity. This what makes you stand out! Great write!

Moxy, your comment is to a Tee.
I feel the way your thoughts flow as you read my poem. I agree with you that long time separated people change. Also one has to consider war causes a lot of trauma. The personality will be different as the fear will imprint deeply in a soldier psyche. Those changes at times can not be reversed. Thank you for making a review of my poem...Zuzanna

Melissa, you penned such a gem. Beautifully embraced the beauty of the rose. but I read in between the lines that the rose has much deeper meaning in your poem .Great Tribute to someone special.
no longer in my hands
in the earth
that we walk each day,
trying to find meaning
for our own lives
and looking toward the heroes
to keep guiding us.
You were my hero,
and this is your flower.
Your memory stays with
and it'll stay with this world."
Very well wrapped at the end with this last stanza. BEAUTIFUL POEM!!

Often thought about the Emperors Kevin. One of them was Cleopatra. I wonder how the Culture was shaping at that time during her reign. This subject often comes to mind. I watched the movie Cleopatra with Liz Taylor. I loved the movie. Not sure how close was to the truth, I guess someone had to write a book about her to base the movie on that script. If comes to modern era I am not sure what to think about Mrs. Clinton as President. She does not fit the Bill. If comes to Mrs. Thacher - I remember she was called an IRON lady...Thank you for placing your heart prints ..Zuzanna

Grete take on the female cosmetic surgery. I am rather against those artificial improvements. You have used a humorous lines too. That adds a
more taste to the entire write. But the sadness creeps in your last stanza. Thank you for the angle look at different solution to self improvement. Have a great holidays!

Daniel ~ your poem sounds great! It show the appreciation for life. Each day it is a gift.
Your lines show a lot of beauty, sorrows, hope, love , passion. Days to enjoy and savor like a great food. Very inspirational and like Moxy said
"Very reflective." Thank you for sharing this great food for thought in your enjoyable poem...Zuzanna
Sun 27th Jan 2008 16:42
This feels like a timeless lyrical lament: it could be any soldier's wife/lover. It beautifully captures that awful uncertaintity about someone returning safely, and hints at the constancy of love whilst suggesting both people will have changed inextricably when they next meet -- they will be strangers to each other in many ways. I love the feeling of peace and reflection that you have created: the baffling constancy of love.
Sun 27th Jan 2008 16:33
Terrific lament for the passing moment -- Carpe Deum! I think it's so very strong that you don't need the last line because that's implicit in the rest of the poem. Very reflective and yet uplifting, Daniel.
Sun 27th Jan 2008 16:29
Oh bleak beauty! Oh lament of the final incision! The grave's a very private place, but none, I think, do there embrace, dermabrase, or chemical peel. I shall now call you Malpoet Marvell.

Clarissa, with the Presidency it is really though. Hope the Good prevail. I wish that your Homeland will get a good man for a President. I hope Ron Paul wins the Election. There are many topics I could dwell on that would fall in to the protection plan from others point of view. Not sure how long and how many human beings will be lost by then…???
It is very disturbing thinking of those young and brave that left homes and never returned alive. Thank you for the additional comment....Zuzanna
Sat 26th Jan 2008 22:49
well its really sad, if we dont get the right person in as President here it wont happen. Hillery and Obama both voted for the war, as did all the republicans...except one, and Im working to get him elected, Ron Paul ! its a long shot, as so many Americans are brain washed into thinking we need to protect the world.

Dear Poetess - Clarissa
Thank you for reading and leaving such a nice comment! Yes, we are all waiting... Your people too. We need our soldiers back home soon.
I mean all the soldiers from each country not just one. It will be like the end of the WWII.
