How well put QWAP! Snoring turns from a nuisance to sweet music when sleeping with the beloved. This is reminiscent of my own romantic poem (August 2019) called \"Asleep) on a similar theme. I invite you to take a look and comment. Amazing read!

I’ve been with my wife for 32 years, and I believe being able to sleep well together is a key ingredient to a long term relationship. I do enjoy her snoring too.

I love your love poems!

An awakening or self-realization could describe this one. You are one of the few poets who can put into words your own personal experiences with raw emotions expressed incredibly well.

myself and me said:

Fully understand the feeling. like the mirage, you could never reach and touch. Beautifully expressed.

The imagery you convey is incredible, I felt as if I was there in your thoughts. Remarkable poetry.

call me maybe

Absolutely wonderful poetry! Sorry it took me a while to comment. I’ve been busy with a lot of complexities.

The personification of sorrow ... Being like a monster . Very good ! Sometimes pain can make us lash out and hurt others and sometimes that can feel out of our control ... \" these claws only know how to rend and tear \" pain can affect how we sometimes are with other people ... Sometimes .

call me maybe
yellowrose said:

I really like this . I like how you compare her to the call of the sea , and your fall onto the concrete hurts ... Just like wanting her hurts you . I can sense the seperation between the call of the sea ( this girl ) and you as if there is a pull between both of you but there is a distance there ... A distance which simply hurts

Nick is living for the future now; he has an art studio in our old office. We all need to find our own direction, he’s getting there. There’s always light behind his eyes.

Thanks again for being you.

A genuinely sad, heartfelt write. Suicide has deep effects on so many people that are left in its aftermath.

A great and honest love poem. Your style of writing is always extraordinary.

I’ve been taking a break from this site due to a difficult time with my son. I borrowed the form that you use for one of my poems, I hope that you don’t mind. I never ask you to read my crap, but this time I’m asking for your help. The poem is “IOU”, I wrote it quickly from my emotions. I would appreciate any suggestions you have in editing it. My son is going through an extremely dark time.

ballad of a foolish man

So many great lines. It’s a realistic love poem expressing hope so well.

I hope that vodka didn’t make you hurl!

I wish I could give this one an eternity of stars. The sorry you have felt and seemingly come to terms with, is so genuine and real. Your poetry always astounds me. You are a true talent.

oh, father (or: what i would say at my father\'s funeral)

Painfully written. As a father and grandfather, I take your words to heart. Thank you for your raw emotions.

Have you tried Natty Daddy, it’s an excellent shitty beer!

These feelings are out and good for you for saying it BLUNT cos its so hurtful for you. He damaged you.

But you are not beyond recovery. The very fact that you are poetic shows you are evacuating the damage from your soul. It will take time and you should be gentle with the process.

MPS is a very theraputic place where goodwill exists in bucket loads.

Publishing what you write when drunk really gets it off your chest. I hope your head feels ok - hangover wise.

lover boy
dusk arising said:

When a love is special poetry is in the air. When a poet finds that love, then poetry fills the air and powers the hand to write.
A lovely love poem today.

a love letter to my body pt.1 & pt.2

Your letters are very important for you to keep. I know you will look back at them and be proud.

ballad of a selfish man

Bittersweet and honest. The things you yearn for are beautiful. I always enjoy love poems that leave lust out; it’s overrated. Tenderness is best.

Your poetry is always outstanding, and I hope you realize that.

this body/my body

Vividly written.

Finding peace with your body does make it feel like home. It is still just a body, what is within is the real you (cliche).

I’m glad you are accepting your outward appearance. Being who you want to be is invigorating.

Beautiful! Very honest, and you did a wonderful job of expressing something that is hard to say.

dusk arising said:

Great finale there. Your words made me think of your mind and its struggle with your body while i was making a comparison. You see some people who ARE their bodies - the architypical \'dumb blonde\' - who are apparently of little mind.

alone together

I wasn’t able to read this one properly earlier, well..., I’m drunk now; I love it! We all should take time to be all right with who we are.

May 19th, 2019 23:42

who are you (to me)?

Also, a great song!

May 9th, 2019 11:26

who are you (to me)?

This one brought tears to my eyes. I hope it has helped you to write it.

Live for the future; leave the past behind. It’s very difficult; I’m trying really hard to do the same. A five ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ poem!
