The For Series

For  Help


open, sore

unwelcome untended

shackled, chain, body maimed,

unmendable labels gained


enamoured, hammered,

paranoid, no android:





illogical, fleeting, hearts-weeping,

gleaming dreaming




To think of this

to think of this

to think




as love.


But blue yellow brown and red

are not the colours of love

but blood instead.


M. R. Wallis



Part of a collection that will be (reasonably) shortly completed based around all different aspects of love from passion to devotion, to hope to hate, and of course the negative aspects, too - such as the kind of love which is hurtful.


I'll try and upload a recital soon.

I look forward to the next insallment Max. A couple of things.1) Obviously you care about how the font size and layout looks on the page. I am afraid thatthe WOL text editor box is not so accomplished :-( . you could create some blank lines before the first line of the poem and then it wont be pushed over by the pic in the blog entry. 2) Great idea posting a series. Try and put up one every week or few days as if you put them up all at one people tend to get a bit flooded. Keep writing. Toodeloo. Winston

Max, in both the poems that you've posted the words are carefully chosen, accessible and adept. I like poems that refer to the net, because so many of us spend so much time on it, and it changes the way some of us behave. Good luck with your collection. Greg
