Oh,Suzanna, won't you play for me...da da da da da, da da da da. With a banjo on my knee!
It's a bit of a song which reminds of when i used to play the piano and it sprung straight into my mind as i started to write the comment.
Your rose in the picture is called "sonya," and is one which was chosen rather often to be used in wedding bouquets when i was a florist.
Your poem is simply beautiful, excellently written. I love the way you moved from two people in love gradually towards the expression of people having more than one soulmate.
We often think of a soulmate being "the one."
Who we will spend the rest of our lives with. When really, it means someone who we connect to at soul level. Our best friends etc...
Lots of love, nice to see you back in full writing swing. Janet.xxx

Yep! Everythin's in there!
The true "voice" of alcohol!!
( and its effects on people the world over.)
Great Pete, the range of emotions are far too many to mention.
Thanks for your comments, they're more than welcome. Janet.xx

Glad you understand it Janet! I think I wrote this in the theory of the absence of someone I knew once and how they can change in such little time!

Oh, you poor thing! Surely you could have done better than that. ha ha.
The "lady" that is, not the poem!
Just a little joke. Hope you don't mind. Janet.x

That's the trouble when we put people on pedestals. They tend to fall off.
Sorry if my comment appears flippant but it seems apt for this poem.

Soulmates. Everyones dream come true.

This poem is very imaginative.
I did read it the other day but it didn't make much sense to me.
When i looked again today, i found i was scrolling through it a section at a time.
Doing that helped the punctuation which is missing throughout.
It's quite light 'n' very nice i think.

I agree with Sarah. i like this poem because it's honest, but it does not seek to degrade the city. With your imagery, you have captured the rawness, without falling upon cliches and stereotypes...

I love the use of colour in this poem, the pink bar contasting with the yellow and dirt. Very effective.

Oh Zuzanna, this is beautiful. I love the description of the rain and the line 'singing a song of love'
Well done you

The poem is much different from your usual writes. It is very imaginary and took me floating with you in the space, that was a travel in a outer world. Very modern writing;
Thank you really enjoyed this one.

The poem is really nice. It actually shows what life would be to live in here for you. You brought all the visual pictures of an ‘Indian Burial Ground’ in your poem. Excellent imagination!!
Pleasure to read; thank you!
PS: Thank you for your concern, I am fine just had a writers block...Sorry.

Hi Richard, Thanks for your comments, they really are very much appreciated.
I hadn't heard about the reps in Spain. We were a party of 8 women ranging between the ages of 30 and 55. Each time we went down the strip as it's called, young lads called reps insisted on literally man-handling and scooping us up off the floor in a bid to get us into bars where they got tips for doing it. I blame the tour companies myself. They really should be more responsible when training them up. It wasn't even high season. Everyone complained.
I meant to tell you last time i visited your profile. When i read "The poet and his muse." Just 2 nights before i had a dream very similar to what is written. I was washed up on shore and a man breathed life back into me. I felt it was significant . Though i don't remember him being a poet or writing a poem for me.xx
Wed 9th Jul 2008 19:11
Thank you for reading more of my poetry and for taking the time to leave a message. It gives my confidence a real boost when I get a positive response. I do not mind criticism though.
My Dad used to play there too. It is a wonderful place. Who would believe there is so much nature so close to Manchester? This Boggart is supposed to pinch our picnics according to the legend. Great place eh? I hope it brought back fond memories.
Wed 9th Jul 2008 18:22
says me with spelling mistakes ! HA! oops sorry!
Great stuff. A good way to get the pain, anger and frustration out and turn into something positive. I reckon also before you post its good to run it on a spell-checker, its easy to want to post it soon as you wrote it so you can share it with tte world and thats the buzz with poems! but spellcheck it first just in case and it makes it even more powerful!
Keep writing. If you get any ideas for a poem just write one line of it, and then keep it for a rainy day you never know the one line can become a poem.

I live in manchester when I'm uni and all of this is very true! The thing I hate the most is what they've done with OK cafe! It had a nice working man feel to it and now it looks like a tendy wine bar like everywhere else

Hi Richard, wow, gift of words, can say that again, nice one - love these lines -
You built an empire
immune from the fire
it is you that made the cement stick
Within it you built a home
to keep your family warm
and your grandchildren safe from the streets
A lot of it sounds like the last couple of years I've had, a lot of it down to me, but hopefully better now, cheers Jeff
PS Did you read my 'I Love the morning'? cheers

This is a very emotional poem and obviously written from the heart.
I've read Lens poems and enjoyed them myself.
A line from a Celine Dion song springs to mind, "before you roll those dice, baby think twice." I feel a great sympathy for your loss and i can only say through personal experience, it really does get easier as time goes by.
Love and healing to you. Janet.xx

(With the odd tramp)
Good one as usual, love Janet.xx

You are one of the reasons i've decided to make a concerted effort to get myself out to poetry gigs. I just love your very funny poetry and can't wait to hear it performed.
