I felt completely drawn into this poem, the writing is immediate and powerful. Though it\'s not a situation I\'ve been in myself, there was so much of the writer\'s voice here that it was impossible to not be immersed in these moments. Thank you for sharing it.

Very good write, sorry I missed it. Being blind can show us the way but those of us with sight just need to look in the eyes of those we meet to see who they really are, the eyes look into the soul.

This poem really speaks volumes, and it\'s so very true. Without the gift of sight we\'d be forced to interact before making judgement of one another.

Good write Amber. Sometimes we think we can practice being blind, yet there are shafts or rays of light around us. It\'s not complete darkness. Well, it might be if we practice in a coal-shed at midnight. doh!

Take Me To Your Dealer

GREAT FANTASY POEM AMBER - Thanks for sharing. Sounds like an LSD Trip to me or a mega dose of cannabis. JEFF was lucky he could easily have lost his manhood if it had been a real GOTH and not just an hallucination ! Love the structure ofthe poem rhyming couplets and rippling with rhythm as becomes the subject. Some conside recreational drugs to be harmless but friends of mine (From College Days) went up so high they never came down again. Castlemaine XXXX never did that to me ! Thanks YOURS BRIAN

Great poem AMBER with a great message - I love rhyming couplets ! There are no old drug addicts - they all die young - what a waste. Only GOD can give us the strength and RELEASE us from drugs. Yours BRIAN

WELCOME AMBER - A beautifully written poem (I love rhyming couplets) but such a tragic content. I know there are lot of battered and bruised wifes and some are even driven to suicide (or murder) as the only way out. However I can assure you not all Men are like that - My DAD is a Saint and should I ever be a husband - I would try to be like him ! Thanks for your poem it warns us how NOT to behave towards Ladies.

WELCOME AMBER (nice name) Even though it is tinged with sadness - love your first poem ! As we move through life - Friends are essential - BUT - they come and go and sometimes even hurt us. I love your attitude "But instead I would like to thank you - For showing me colours true". It's a sign of wisdom if we can learn from the negatives that we experience. I also love the structure of your poem "Rhyming Couplets" which give the poem great flow and energy. Thanks for sharing - BRIAN
