Hi, my name is Melissa, and I'm a TVaholic. If TV were to die tomorrow, then hours would be sent in writing, but with TV still bringing my favorite shows to me, time is lost to them.
Love your stuff. :)

It sounds like a problem with the cable for Internet connection. That also occurs here as well. At times, it takes longer then one day.
I guess for the time being you still were able to compose new write in spite of the temporary blurred vision. You made a point in your poetry… Twist about technology in general. It shows that the gadgets are prone to failure.

I like this one Daniel. 'Showing' us rather than 'telling' us what's going on. Excellent.

Suicide is a shock to everyone left behind and those of us left can't help but feel responsible for not doing more. Nicely written tribute by one who was left, I feel it.

It's a tricky argument. The illegal trade is extremely dangers for the protitutes and their clients. The girls (and men) that work in places where it is legalised and controlled often report they enjoy their work. Can an outsider to the world really judge? I can't.

Hi Melissa, this is beautiful, having been through my fair share I can truly identify with your sentiments.
Thanks for sharing it and your lovely comments about my work, very much appreciated, hope to have something else out soon, Jeff

Beautiful song - There is no need for hurting another. Love, compassion, and respect I can see as the key link in any relationship. If recorded it will be an excellent song!
You are very romantic and it is shows in your written word.

Hello again, your profile mentions that you paint.
Is the picture entered one of your own?
It truly captures a soul, entering the light with help from the angels of the night.

Prostitutes forsake their own dignity.
Some feel they have no choice. Others haven't known any other kind of life.
I could go on but it's not for me to judge.

Yes, very deep. I particularly enjoyed the first line but struggled with the word, 'convulted' is my dictionary in need of updating or should I read it as 'convoluted'. This is a genuine question and by no means a criticism! So please don't take offence Daniel.

Tres joli poeme meme si je n ai pas compris tout les details, mon anglais etant mauvais. J ai eu beaucoup de plaisir a le lire.
Continuer ainsi! ;)

Hi Melissa - you have a particular style to much of your poetry which I enjoy. On this occasion you have began by asking questions and attempted to answer some. I would be tempted to seperate the line where you repeat the line 'No life is lived easy' into a seperate stanza, giving the appearance that there is a reflective thought between one notion and the next. Does that make sense? You have a talent with words, that's for sure.
Mon 26th May 2008 13:47
On one level it appears that 'drugs' are the insipration for words and creativity and on another level it could be that perhaps the 'words' are the tools with which you empower yourself. I like it. Although to be frank, I seem to enjoy much of what you write. It's all very enjoyable because it's not one dimensional. Fan - tas - ic.
Mon 26th May 2008 13:35
While this piece has a rhyming scheme it does not 'sound' blatant, in the fact that the contents, or the subject, is so intimate that it dilutes the rhyme. This is a very touching piece and one that stands out for its frankness and the author's ability to verbalize such thoughts.

Such beautiful words, thank you Janet x

Time heals even the greatest of loss.
The bond of love grows stronger.
I'm only ever a thought away.
In you, i live for longer.

Thanks Jeff, on sale now! I'll email you the advert.
Really enjoyed all your poems - love the simplicity of 'I know you're there' - made me laugh. See you in July.....! (I'll be the one appologising to her parents after the show).

You touched my heart and made me cry, bringing a lump to my throat. so now i want to run and hide so no-one else will see.
It's lovely Alison, Janet.

This made me feel a little melancholy, but i'm tired and need some sleep.
Maybe tomorrow it will look different, then i can say, long live life!

Funny for others but not me.
Aw, i'm sorry. Couldn't resist.
Great stuff, Janet.

Savour the sunshine and seize the day!
That's the most positive thing i've heard in weeks. Like music to my ears. Brilliant.
"Sympathize." Hmm! Not really what i had in mind but thanks for the thought.
I may only be a 5' nothing size 8, but the years have made me strong enough to cope with almost anything. But yes, i do have rather a sweet tooth, creating temptation and weakness. Ah well.

Hi Melissa, thanks for your comment about my last poem, I've just read yours and its deep and meaningful - just up my street!
I also took the opportunity at looking at a couple of other, great stuff and will look for more, thanks Jeff

Your poetry reflects a piece of myself, a piece wishing for love and understanding, but the bitterness of rejection has kept my door shut. I am inspired to maybe open it once again. :)

I am a fan of your poetry as well, and I love the haunting touch of each word, poetic and beautiful. I especially love the first paragraph that pulled me in and kept me flowing word over word.
