dusk arising said:

Do we have a choice. Our voices haunt us needing redemption of the page. The pains of expressing deep held emotion, frustration of conversion to the written word.... relief that the words have formed before us though tainted that someplace along the way they were traded for a convenience of another thought or more....

Being poetic, a mixed blessing of bliss and frustration.

I like how we start life all optimistic, roses and love. Then love\'s off with Joe, and suddenly the world has come to an end. Fear will get you to the river, sheer fear will get you across it.

A great couple of stanzas here L. B. Mek, you\'ve certain hit the nail on the head regards to the meandering river of life, that can frustrate and distort what we plan, but it\'s important on how we jump over the hurdles.

Bravo, and I hope that all is well!

Good words Mek but that grin will always outweigh the fear.

Deep insight with great life experience paints a beautiful scenery on the canvas called life
Maybe with poetry and passing of years the lines mean a lot to me
True is the wisdom in the instincts that is a very special visitor of mine

Ah yes, the gift of trusting in our instincts or do you refer to our final breath. The gift of faith will paint that moment.

kitty the naughty poet said:

in my mind’s dimensioning corridors
a resoundingly stale coldness, awakens
voicing life’s, inescapable: bitter truth
it has to be me, to yield
love’s cancerous mirages, to survive.

Wow I love that. Really great share dear friend

A hurricane of the sharpest darts of descript. I could aliken this to those commercial vessel fishing nets. You really hauled out the ocean my friend. Particularly I must point out, even your presentation stands out by virtue of artistic posture, i.e font, shape, spacing, punctuation. It presents you and your uniqueness with little care for being \"pretty\". As a writer, I identify with that. \"Stoppering\".... An excavation right there my friend. I could go on ... An authentic masterpiece L.B. - Hat off to you sir!🔥

I will survive.
In reality, should really be the bywords to life.
Some will say you need to get knocked down to get up, and maybe they\'re right, still hurts mind you.

A fantastic imagery
Where every scene played
Played in front of my eyes
I could see the actor in play
Love struck and heartbroken
Clinging on tenterhooks to hold it or let go
The mobile’s dimlight and life holding as if the last line for the lovers to connect
Some connections hold on
Causing us in dilemma whether to continue or not
What if we never get the chance again
Every word conveyed the pain
Heart wrenching were the lines
The title spoke of a cold hearted
Why did it seem so overwhelming
The pledge of not being in same situation again
But alas the Cupid isn’t in our control
We could be only actors
Not the one writing the play afar

Holly **** what just happened, this was not expected but yet how could I not.

Such expressions of the soul

\"Not these morbid thoughts again\"

Hit me like an arrow at the end, holding on from the start as if there was something in your words I wanted so much but yet still can\'t let go!

I\'ll never know every step you have taken but to have a vibration like yours, must mean it\'s been no vacation.

Thank you for sharing my friend!

LoL damn love dear Mek, one of my all time favourite dance and karaoke songs that I have sung many times with a passion. Beautifully executed a poem that tells not all is perfect but we will move along and maybe we will or won\'t find that one that could be perfect. Fab, although hoping it\'s just fiction. 💖

GardenDelights said:

Very enjoyable! You present much worth pondering here. You sculpt with ink in many highly descriptive phrases. Some of note for myself: \'There’s, not enough poetry in the world /and far too much of it, simultaneously\' \'creatures, who thrive best/ draped, in starlit blankets/
of kindness and love\' and your final verse.

Your poems evoke a kind of sad emptiness in me. They\'re so flowery and remind me of how I used to write poetry during some of my darkest times I try to eclipse when I was seventeen. They\'re darker poems than what I\'ve chosen to publish here. I grouped 40 together and named them Poems to Read Aloud When I\'m Gone. Life never gets any easier, but my style of writing has changed greatly into an almost lyrical direction, and when I\'m composing now I listen to my favourite music. Before I could only write in silence, and I\'d recite them. Great piece. I especially love: \"lava dedication
as eyes squirm\".

Like your moth my mind took flight across instinct and will. Whatever drives Mr Moth undermines his species survival, for one day, just as humanity cannot cease to be led into commercial, environment bending, self destruction, he too and his ilk will die away..... whilst other life forms casually take his place and reform our planet.
