Lonesome, divided by Eight billion
Teddy.15 said:

Mmm what\'s all this , wannabe poet, I would certainly not put you in that category

Dearest Mek I have learnt through my writing just how many regrets I may have, yet they are not regrets simply because they are? LoL do you get that, go on my friend with your head held high, without the life we have all had we wouldn\'t have anything to write about right,? As ever a beautiful reflective poem. X

Robert Haigh said:

I think we all have some regrets in life. Who could ever live the perfect life? Mistakes and regrets make us human. Loneliness lives in even the biggest of cities - sad but true.

if Choice remains choose Kindness, I beg
Neville said:

Is there any other way .. sadly and all too often, the answer is a deafening YES ..
However, if we each scribed a little poem or a note and left them here and there, containing the humanistic message embedded in todays post .. Then just maybe one or two might be found and read and acted upon accordingly .... Maybe ... and for all those who refused to do so without good reason, then may their beards grow backwards and choke em .......... N :)

London’s, scarlet seasons
Neville said:

Oh\' how I do hanker for those halcyon days of steam when if there was ever a riff then each would be encouraged to don a pair of gloves and slug it out outside the school gates or on the rec .. When kidney punches, head buts, biting. kneeing and elbows were frowned upon and would lead to disqualification .. When a bloody nose and a black eye or two would be worn like campaign medals and determine the winner ... Knives were for whittling, cutting string and a million other legitimate daily chores .. Sadly, those days are long gone and unlikely to return .... Even sadder the fact that your poem today paints the grimmest picture of an increasingly accurate state of affairs that frightens me shitless .. so much so that I have stopped carrying my old pocket knife that has been a trusty friend for more years than I can remember ... and was my fathers friend before me ... Yes indeed, you reference London, but sadly those scarlet and crimson stained sidewalks are an all too familiar sight right across the country and even beyond .... Well done Mek .. rant over N

Paul Bell said:

Just the journey of the creaking floorboards that for some reason in the dead of night sound like church bells going off. Then for some crazy reason, you go on into the unknown.
This is when you\'re at the mercy of the dream master. Will it be a gory death, or is it a wake-up screaming occasion. I foresee more like this in the run-up to Halloween.

Indeed the story well scripted
The words so well adorned
I , reader
Felt like a character
Caught up in story of yours
So realistic
Yet fantasies lace
Wonder where the boundary rests

A great surreal poetry piece, L.B. The drama and tension are palpable. The shifting realities and fantasies remind me of some of my more bizarre (and disturbing) dreams. I was there! Well penned, my friend!

Blue skies, strain to stay merciful

in all, but that final surge of decimation:

hurricane sighs, typhoon tears - streaking

Nature’s fury, through every season.

We are facing the worst rainfalls in Kerala from 2018 onward... We must learn to live in tandem with nature... Laotzu told it long back...

It probably has not quite all, already been said, but I have no doubt, it wont be long, before it has ...

Therefore and under such circumstances, I shall respectfully allow all those who came both before me and those who will no doubt follow, serve as my mouthpiece ................. Neville

spilleronsheet said:

A plethora of emotions
That hold
The beautiful insights
That join together
Giving us the guiding lines
It ends with a charming smile
Whatever our emotions be
They are priceless
Experiences are the best teachers

After Adam and Eve, did God go back to the drawing board. At least he kept the humble apple tree. Class write.

Stop living in words
Stop living on rules
Go out
Venture and fall
What is to live
If lived by rules of all
No dictionary defines us
No atlas to score
Where does the imagination die
And where does one resurrect in time
Truly said
Let’s catch the moments and live upon

It’s a great poetry dear poet. So stark but so true. It represents the exact minds and yet teaches us to come back and find empathy that we have lost. It’s revolutionary. Such mindful words. Telling us to return after being lost. Telling us to let go the remorse. Very much needed. Such wise words indeed needed and appreciated dear poet.

Kindness to all is the only way to be so that we can look back on our lives and say, \"I did my best for others.\".
