Cut the Roots
jarcher54 said:

PS I am often reminded that the word \"regret\" is probably the most salient, painful word in the language. The word is a poem all by itself.

Cut the Roots
jarcher54 said:

I think I was crying in that same coffee shop that day! Yes, been there felt that. I like how you cut the poem in half with a little chorus. Somewhat like a Greek chorus making sure the audience is paying attention! Thanks for making me hurt! Its so beautifully relatable.

Yes, I\'ve tried to self-destruct most of my life because of THEM. But guess what? It didn\'t work. And now I\'m coming out the other side of it...

Never Here, Never There
David Wakeling said:

I tried to read this but it is so unpleasant I gave up.The main problem is the reader doesn\'t know who is ranting at whom and why

Yesterday I Loved You
jarcher54 said:

Damn I missed you and your outpourings of mesmerizing imagery, pain and joy, energy and ennui, wandering and discovery, love and longing. This piece is exactly what I needed after a long work week...

Midnight in A Sullen Frame

forgive my tardiness, am so glad
I found these emphatically poignant words
\'That tragic kind of magic\'
I bow to your superior talent dear Poet

Midnight in A Sullen Frame
jarcher54 said:

I love following the subtle--and sometimes not-so-subtle--evolutions of your approach. You use the same strong skills in different ways over time. This is both a welcome throw-back to those long, dense structures where images just come pouring down in overwhelming, mesmerizing torrents, and your simpler, more literal and direct poems. This piece is full of personal confession and universal, Blake-like symbolism. It is more controlled, almost fragile, compared to those big roaring blocks of text. Delightful.

The Paper Cut Is A Bee Sting
L. B. Mek said:

great imagery, so relatable dear Poet
thank you!
(you capture light within the bleak
that relief of acceptance, realising
all is as nature decreed
petals to broken heart\'s, we\'re all journeying
to our autumn season\'s, reveal)

Love In Our Blood
L. B. Mek said:

just a joy to read, thanks for sharing dear poet
(the drip in our tears
matches the tap, tap
pulsing beat
when we bleed or sing
in the name of love...)

The Nightjar\'s Lament
jarcher54 said:

Here in Texas we call the nightjar the nighthawk. Have you ever witnessed their amazing dives? A pair will be flying along hundreds of feet in the air, then one of them will suddenly dive down at a breakneck speed, only to pull up out of the dive just at the rooftops and treetops, with an incredible and unique whirring sound from the wings and tail against the air.
I think it is maybe a mating thing, or just for fun. But it is as earthy and essential as you and your poignant ditties.

The Moonlight Is Disintegrating Into Ashes
L. B. Mek said:

\'I see the morning and its sharp teeth
The orange glow of the sunrise in the distance

I hear a saxophone
I see a city made out of synthetic organs
Bleeding like a symphony

The sea is jutting back and forth
Voiceless \'
A Brilliant read
thanks for sharing, dear Poet

Pedal Steel and Ribbons
crypticbard said:

Very cinematic and quite connected to the senses. Spiderwebs are quite a thing to contend with and so are sticky emotions. TFS
