3 Days Sober
Rocky Lagou said:

I love how this poem came off as this one long train of thought. The mind is truly capable of self-destruction; however, as you put in this poem, is it really fair to label it as such when everyone else has their own addictive issues? A pensive verse that is thought-provoking.

Kicked you in the cooch

Just a little 😂. As a trainee psychologist I understand why people place so much utility in the online world.. But I still find it baffling.

A little disillusioned with virtual interaction, Ed?
Should be more of it, otherwise virtual morons will take over the world in real time.
A problem well defined in skilled versification.

True Love Language
_lonely__side said:

you\'ve expressed the emotion quite well. It just gets so much difficult to convey our feelings sometimes and feels like everything we say to express it is just making it more and more complicated

\'About a bus driver poet\'
(Paterson\'s not just a film
it\'s a work of art
and like all art, it\'s very
\'in my humble opinion\') lol
really enjoyed the climbing down steps - feel
of spiralling bad choices your poetry portrayed,
insightful commentary, aside
a little introspection and yesteryear musing\'s..
a poignant cocktail of poetic melancholy..
thanks for sharing, a great read..
(and loved your last three lines_
\'fucked over
is an understatement, time
will heal all and crown me victor
but, the immediacy
of my humiliation slows: that ticking clock.\'
(don\'t explode, lol
Fight, the good fight!
and write
write it all out
imagine each poem
as saving hundreds
on a counselling session) lol

Devil on my shoulder, but she ain\'t much company
L. B. Mek said:

a never ever ending battle
to stay, clean
once you\'ve chosen to cross that line
and save yourself
the pain..
(admittedly a harrowing read
but still, thanks for sharing)
stay strong!

Time to feel like we\'re falling
L. B. Mek said:

a poised, portrait of love
in its Phoenix form
inked rhythmically, Poetic..
what a great read, thanks for sharing
\'Speak to me of beauty
Speak to me of truth\'
(\"Beauty is truth, truth beauty,--that is all
Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.\")
her be: the greatness of Keats\'
written centuries
before, we ever gurgled
our disquiet of life...!

L. B. Mek said:

you\'ve written these words
as if dipping within your tears

to guide your inspiration..

How Did You Use Your Hurt?
L. B. Mek said:

\'Though it matters not
The severity of your pain
But how severely your actions
Bring about a change
For the strong know how to manifest
Their screams into their dreams
While the weak welcome bitterness
And get by on happy memories\'
\'It matters not how did you live your life
But how did you use your hurt?\'..
Insightful words
and a meaningfully positive message
you choose to poetically share
thank you! dear poet
