So true and well written LB, we use our words to put our feelings and thoughts onto the paper, sometimes they fall into rhythm and rhyme but that is just we feel as the ink goes onto the paper.

Well I applaud your format and structure! I have struggled formatting my words here!
I enjoy the digital era of words, and no doubt , would not be exposed to fine wordsmiths!
I do say, I still need to read more works of art! Kinda stuck on Detective Mysteries!

Awe my dear if I had the extensive divine vocabulary as yours,
then perhaps free Verse would spill from my tongue, but alas,
You are a divine writer! I usually have rhymes in my head, though
I have discovered new poetic forms for which I like try out,

Oohh, I must have me metres (usually) and me melodic whims.
They\'re only whims. I get arrested for false pretences of singing! They say it\'s two cats fighting, and disturbs the peace. lol.

Top drawer writing on need for true self-expression when composing perception in poetic versing. A favourite for sure my friend.

Yep. Totally agree. Make the point rather than the rhyme.

Hmmm I\'d like to think there is a third way as I cannot claim to be nor wish to be \'modern\'. That is to simply get on with it - whatever it is, and for me here it\'s poetry. Whether mine is any good, conventional, rule breaking or absurd I leave for others as I am comfortable with \'the way I do it\' and do not seek comparison. But i do like to be read lol.

I\'m not sure whether i have lost the plot in your piece today. That Bukowski root was excellent and set the tone for my interpretation of yours.

We are in deep territory here, a style that suits your pen very well. The truth is always in flux I fancy, moulded in the image of current thinking with no regard for the harm done or potential hurt inflicted, nothing beats changing the rules, what better way to stand out in a crowd? A fine work and a most absorbing read, Joe

Superb Write! Regrets we all have a few! My favorite line

“as youth’s vigour fades within life’s subtle breeze” You’ve inspired a poem in my mind! Now to write it!

what an absolutely divine intro you have placed at the top of the page sir .. and then, you capture a life gently and oh\' so perfectly, incorporating into the convoluted folds so many of its nuances that no matter who stumbles or falls upon these words by design ... they will each be able to relate ...

Stunning poetry L.B and without any doubt, truly..

Many of our achievements are behind us as we live longer in our lives. We can look back at them and be thankful that we have done them.

Joe Dawson said:

Life\'s rush seemingly never ending, then comes the day that the phone stops ringing, the urgent meetings fall silent, and on a dusty shelf in an empty garage a Filofax and a part-used tin of Simonize bear witness to faster times and better times. Now long gone, and so too the many voices that gave spring to the step, and powered ambition to the dizzying heights from which one fell. It lasts but a short time and yet feels like forever. Enjoyable write. Joe

Ah yes achievements, my land of yesterday. Superceeded of course by the relaxation into ageing and insight into the unnecessary.

Enjoyed reading your words.

So many loves in a lifetime, but which one would I metaphorically jump off a cliff with (cliffs being very much in focus at present)? Such a love, such a night, such a write. Palpable, touchable, real. Excellent. Joe

I popped back here to take a peek and stayed for longer than I had anticipated .... some might say I was loitering .. I would rather suggest it was a linger .... still beautifully crafted and otherwise timeless ...

Love can be so strong that even jumping off the cliff together is ok as your Spirits will be together as one.

ANGELA & BRIAN said:

ANGELA here - Thanks LBM for an intriguing poem of Ladies & Love ! For Millenia Ladies have used Cosmetics to enhance their Natural Beauty ! However for Brian to love me I have no need of Warpaint ~ He loves me *au naturelle* ! Over the last three years the TRUST based on our LOVE has grown to the extent that we could react the scenario vividly described in the final three stanzas ! I trust this reflects the TRUST Brian has in ME !

Blessings & Peace to You & Your
Love Angela - Brian - Smokey ! ! !

Bam! What an ending... They are sometime because of good but what started it all was that one day back before I even knew what was under my hood!

Thank you for sharing!

Wonderful love story so beautifully done.... it just struck me that if this goes on too long, so many young pretty faces will never be seen while they are still fresh! Yikes what a pity.
