I Am A Coelacanth
queer-with-a-pen said:

May or may not be teary eyed. This embodies trauma so well, and the lasting effects of it. The last line is very poignant, on how you were never gone. I like that a lot.

Some folk these days who won\'t have anything to do with even basic I.T./computing matters are called \'dinosaurs\'!

I Don\'t Know What It\'s Like To Grow Old
Joe Dawson said:

Age can become an obsession if you let it, far better to love and be loved, stroll gently though life neither expecting too little nor too much and you will not be disappointed. \'Don\'t know what it\'s like to grow old\' well, a good part of it is a wise head based on experience, bugger the rest. Enjoyed the write very much. Joe

A fine write Aislinn. No worries or concerns as yet, though some have said \'Oh I\'m getting old; I\'m 30 next birthday!\'

There is a joy to being old but when I look back on my long life I see those wonderful moments in life, so my advice would be enjoy every moment of every day, they will not come back except in your memories and those memories should be wonderful.

The chant takes a mind to an alone place, even when in the midst of a crowd, or blaring sound.
A chant is a means to escape, to be an individual

There are many parts of our minds which we bind to another. Parts we discover we never knew of before. What is this thing called love? Enigmatic isn\'t it... so are your fine words here today.

The Woman

Powerful. Wild. Raw.

Warning
orchidee said:

I\'m a bit woozy reading the first two lines here. The theme to me seems to be self-righteousness, or partly so. We can pick our wounds to look more \'religious\'; wave our rod and bring water from the rock; but still be greedy and build bigger barns for ourselves.
Bit controversial lines of a hymn \'All things bright and beautiful\' omitted from hymn books out of embarrassment. Goes something like this:

\'The rich man in his castle
The poor man at his gate
God knows each one\'s situation
And ordered their estate\'.

Interestingly written and formatted. But a fine write none the less. There is no such thing as flying too close to the sun for if we don\'t make it we still will live among the stars.

Like a Man
Sunshinefalling said:

I like it. I take it to mean the woman who must be incrediably strong. To act as a man. To be a warrior - one of her true natures. Well written really. Lovely.

Michael Edwards said:

We all view and read poetry differently and without wanting to appear arrogant I can usually spot a few changes in the poetry of others which I feel would help improve them. Having said all that this is original and reads so well there is nothing I would want to suggest apart from a little punctuation to encourage the reader to pause for effect . It\'s a great write.

A good write Aislinn. Though I often say that on comments, but sometimes don\'t get the theme. Not just your poems - there\'s other authors too, which may be too cryptic for me at times.
Sorry I can\'t help more on this one.
