A Rhyme From A Lost Childhood
jarcher54 said:

Your writing is very beautiful, very pregnant with emotion and thoughtful observation. I am fascinated by this little piece, and it\'s gonna take me a bit longer to figure out exactly why. The short lines belie the weighty emotions each one carries. This piece is like a child discovering adult things. This was the sweetest part of a long day.

To Land on Your Feet
Goldfinch60 said:

Such sad words BDB, all we here about in this world are the bad things that happen but there are more good people in this world than there are bad but only the bad get recognised.
The world is a good place in many and most respects.

A Ruined Place
tallisman said:

Hello, really good, word play brings out a description that belies the length of the poem, if that makes sense! Minimum words, maximum effect! I keep rereading it!! Thanks for sharing….

L. B. Mek said:

poignant and heart wrenchingly, relatable
there are categories of fate
in our worth, if we compare
then \'We\' lose;
best to just balance, on our thimbles
of opportunity
count our blessings, knowing
it could have been a lot, worse
as It Should Have Been Much, Better!
let\'s not squander, what little mercy
we\'ve been afforded, dear Poet
stay strong!

Another Worthless Poem
Rocky Lagou said:

I\'m so sorry to hear this, but know that everything will be alright. I lost my mother at 13, so I know what loss feel like. It\'s unbearable, but keep in mind that there\'s always light, even when you can\'t see it. Your poems are your legacy.

Another Worthless Poem
tallisman said:

Never worthless, some poems talk to others, some to ourselves. I wish you a path to a happier future…and by the way, this was a well crafted and emotional poem, well done…

Another Worthless Poem
jarcher54 said:

Another lovely poem... far from worthless... as Frost said, the woods are lovely, dark and deep. So is your little poem. We all feel something like the way you do in this poem sometimes. I for one feel blessed that you shared your deepest thoughts in this candid, deceptively simple lyric. There is nothing like a poem to bring out such emotions and ponderings.

Very moving. The melancholic grips me tight and I can\'t help but to reread it all over again.

I Hide Behind My Veil
L. B. Mek said:

\'to survive, we adapt
if void is your, thread
to that grip, as a - hold
for all that you treasure
in life
then, so be it..\'

stay strong!

Thank you all for the kind words! I\'m very glad others were able to receive something from my middle-of-the-night verse epiphanies.

Sweet the Venom
Rocky Lagou said:

Wow, what an amazing poetic display! This is truly a touching piece. I feel that so many in our generation our desperately seeking acceptance from others and have shunned their own inner-beauty. Thank you for this affirmation.

Sweet the Venom
L. B. Mek said:

thank you! for choosing to share
your poetic genius with us, dear Poet
\'Because all of it is a lie

So much wasted time
Pursuing something I am not
All this loathing and doubt
Over this ideal I’ve sought

I am no different from any other\'..

\'To stave off rejection’s cruel remembrance

Delusions come abound
For the hope-starved heart\'..

\'How sweet the venom
Of such affirming lies
For the truth cannot be known
To hear it is to die\'..

Long Days and Short Years
L. B. Mek said:

\'Hurt has made me humble
Shown me what I am
So in these last dire moments
I do right however I can

Apologies to the few that are left
I make my peace with ghosts
Then I gaze at the sapling trees
Who are more than I’ll ever know\'..
(when I grow up
I wish to attain, a percentage
of the humble wisdom
in these words...!)
thank you for choosing to share, oh wise Poet
