From what I\'ve seen out there, the roles could be reversed. Guys seem to bitch more than women, stay in the toilet longer getting ready, and have stopped drinking in favour of the gym. Give me back the cave man, you know that guy

I believe the message is we should not jump to conclusions and make a judgement before having all the facts. All of us. Key word is patience.

This is great L.B.! Sometimes we\'re quick to judge another or to interpret something wrong without giving it a second thought. Especially when it comes to love. A wonderful poem!

I\'m sure you didn\'t mean to, but I just feel like some of the things said in the poem, is just further pushing the ongoing stereotypical assumption that women are just these emotional and hormonal time bombs, and men are just these brutish cavemen that cannot for the life of them understand how to communicate emotions and feelings. I feel that the biggest misunderstandings is that every man is the same as the next and every woman is the same as the next, when it come to those types of things. Not meaning to ostracize you or your opinions, just speaking my thoughts. Also not saying that the poem is bad, because it is very well written. Just commenting on the gender based stereotypical undertones that I sensed when reading this.

Dear Mek !!
True to eyes but tough to heart !! Loved this line.. \"has been marinated and lamented - upon
for hours, days, weeks
or a lifetime \"
Ladies wait a long time before a burst out. This should not be advantage for the men. Better they understand us before the hurricane sets in..:) Indeed a thoughtful write !!

Was this from your experiences Mek ?? 🤣😂

these words were simply crying out to be writ .. I personally believe a lot of decisions & actions either one way or another are not taken through fear of maybe getting it wrong .. I shall send you Mek my treatise on risk assessment, risk management and positive risk .. in the meantime, we need more of this ............................. Neville

Integrity is another one of those things that have gone missing in our world. Always help others in trouble.

Sometimes, even bookended rhymes

or schemes, can’t make

our posing for effect, half

-truth’s flow, between doubting pulses

I love this line. My poetic pulse is often full of doubt. Your work is magical. And I look forward to reading so much here.

Rocky Lagou said:

A beautiful poem L.B. I feel so many overlook and neglect other\'s feelings and emotions and would rather pass it off than try to communicate and share compassion. I know in this hateful world, it\'s abundant. I hope for more kindness.

We are made more aware of children suffering, yet still it goes on. The system is failing many of them, for sure. So sad.

A lot of the time the public do get involved, social workers get involved, yet at the end a kid will die, then the inquiry starts, and it goes on and on.
In a lot of these cases, the signs are stark, yet they give the parents the benifit of the doubt.

An expressive writing , Mek . So important to show compassion towards those who may be suffering .. in any way , I guess .

You know some people can be so cold and lacking in compassion towards people who are hurting in life

I know it’s not the same thing but I have mental health problems .. and my neighbours have acted unkind and sometimes rude

Compassion is so important .. a cold uncaring behaviour truly helps nobody

Saxon Crow said:

Help, in whatever way you can

and above all else

just demonstrate a little

Compassion

let that scared, haunted individual

you Witness,

Recognise

Empathy’s existence: in our world!

So very true. Compassion is so underrated but far more definite and real than the subtle ambiguities of love.

That can only be described as melifluous. And the music of Helene Smith, that brought it to a whole new level. Reminded me somehow of that old Sidney Pottier film To Sir With Love, somehow. Random, but there. thanks L.B. for sharing. /Rik.

Paul Bell said:

Spot on, if you don\'t like what someone\'s wearing, look away, don\'t take it upon yourself to assault the person. It\'s the same with men who try to change women to their warped morals. Sadly, we still live in a country where women are fair game for the controlling factions out there.

I had so much fun reading this. May is in my opinion the very best month (it\'s my birthday month) and it is that bridge between.
I liked how you used different schemed and patterns throughout; it created a unique rhythm that served the month of May well :)

We long for Spring, after a harsh Winter, and the coolness of Autumn, having survived the heat of Summer, knowing that we need them all to feel alive, as your cherished words so poetically stated.
