Quite profound, if I allow the rules to guide me, then be it so, but I never let it distract me from the pleasure of rhymes and rhythm, in poetry as well as life

It\'s so important to differentiate oneself, specially when it comes to poetry, as you have so eloquently done here.

Clever write Mek, it is a shame that their awareness does not come to help the poor souls of whom they are aware.

poetic license is often referred to but just as oft completely misunderstood ...

tis infinitely possible of course to get hooked pon those deceivingly soft n gentle thorns that also double as a lovers lips or fingertips .. or even poetry itself methinks ....

I may be a million miles off centre, but I know what I both mean and like ... and I mean, I like this page my friend ....

Well said, L.B.
At least here on MPS we don\'t have to feel boxed in and can feel accepted all around.

We are born with a genuine fondness for one another we just let ourselves get talked out of it.
Good read L.B.

How true. No form or certificate can contain us. We are free will individuals. A mix of saints and sinners, black or white, qualified or not \"legitimate\" or not. Shamed by authorities who would consign us to \"type\".

Very well written Mek, those early nerves when staring to play at a concert are eventually overcome as the music takes over your body as it obviously does to the young lady in the clip.
It used to be that way with me but I played in groups not as an individual.

L.B. I do like how you build up to the beginning of play, the pressure, the fear, the excitement. Well done!

this is a splendid bit of seemingly self disclosive poetry .. original and one I can truly empathise with .... I really need to go tune my mandolin ....

dusk arising said:

Those early stage nerves before we start playing. The playing is of course the easy part, we have practiced and rehearsed so often to get here. And of course the music is good so now everyone relaxes, self included.

Yes, I remember similar nerves from early performances which for me began at eighteen and i was solo singing which is even more \'personal\' than solo instrument which i later went on to.

Well depicted piece from you.

I felt a message in these sincere lines, is about to say: hugging others\' wounds could make our wounds heal faster, and the illusionary borders between all of us, would disappear instantly.
