Ink forged: Soulmates


know, that it was never the poetry of my words 

which enticed you, rather 

its always been, their integrity of empathetic veracity 

that you: reached out to


for with us, I need only state 

ten percent, of all that I strive to depict and convey

for you to glean, more than

a hundred and ten percent: of all that I dare to dream


there-in exists, simplicity in our bonds

time-traversing synchroneity, of sincerity

    • L. B. Mek

      'Together, we truly deeper
      and enrich the soul'
      Amen! my poetic brother
      as you say, it all starts at:
      thank you!

    • Accidental Poet

      You nailed it LB. Awesome write. ; )

      • L. B. Mek

        thank you dear poet, glad you liked it
        it was: inspired by/dedicated to
        awesome scribblers like you at MPS,
        my friend

        • Accidental Poet

          Thank you LB. We're all scribblers in the same house. ; )

        • Neville

          back at you brother
          I do believe we are in the same corner

          • Michael Edwards

            It's a crowded corner.

            • L. B. Mek

              indeed, my friend!
              and like Michael said
              it a crowded corner, since: amazingly
              so many here at MPS
              share that like-minded - selfless, spirit
              to invest willingly in each other;
              we newbies: owe it all
              to the OG's of MPS
              like you, Michael, Fay, Dusk, and all the rest
              (especially Volver/Julian)
              that helped cultivate
              such an amazingly inclusive, engaging space
              for us to share
              our scribbles and dreams, to freely: self-express...
              humbly, I thank you: All!

            • Thekkinkkattil

              The simplicity integrity and sincerity is highly appreciated and valued

              • L. B. Mek

              • Saxon Crow

                Yes. Simply yes

                • L. B. Mek

                  lol, well then

                  simply, dear poet

                • Jerry Reynolds

                  Well written, L.B.
                  Soulmates for sure, but I have to read things more than once before it sinks in. Red dirt roads are hard.

                  • L. B. Mek

                    'Red dirt roads are hard.'
                    (as long as we remember:
                    "happiness on Earth, ain't
                    just for high achievers"...
                    then together, we'll
                    overcome that, loose grip
                    making our tyres - slip
                    unnerving us, from time to time
                    in our chosen - turbid, path: of life...)
                    what a brilliantly supportive
                    and insightfully poetic comment, Jerry
                    inspirational as ever, dear Poet

                  • aDarkerMind

                    an outstanding write!
                    listen to, and enjoy the applayse;

                    • L. B. Mek

                      I hear kindred poet's - simply, reflecting
                      that need for sharing, I manged to imbue
                      in my humble scribble, dear Talented Poet
                      'nothing more
                      but blessedly: nothing les, either'
                      thank you! for taking the time
                      to encourage and support, in such a meaningful way

                    • SureshG

                      If pleasant dreams can become reality,
                      my poetry may also increase in quality,
                      from ten percent, for all to see, for all to see.

                      But will I be able to write like you, is another case.

                      • L. B. Mek

                        its easy, to write, 'Better': than me
                        simply, search-for and follow
                        that thread
                        to your instinctive imagination
                        'choosing' to freely express
                        that part of yourself
                        you would normally: repress...
                        let it all out, dear poet
                        and see your words shine
                        in that nurturing sunlight!
                        or in you own more poetic words
                        'if, dreams can become reality
                        my poetry may also increase
                        in quality,
                        from mere: ten percent,
                        to being clear
                        for all to see
                        for all to see....'

                        Sincerity and honesty are present here in abundance - dazzlingly so. Joe

                        • L. B. Mek

                            lol, yeah took me a while to get there
                            tried about a million different titles
                            before I lucked-out and found this one
                            thank you for highlighting it, dear poet

                          • Goldfinch60

                              Amen! Andy
                              that's an important message
                              to reinforce, and so: I thank you

                              In true L.B style, never a lost word from your pen may the love ink spread
                              forever more, for you and your soulmate, beautifully written as all your poems are. I'm a huge fan of seeing a gentleman's heart on paper and today I feel so warm knowing you have that someone special to share your talents with. Moreover I'm also thrilled I get to read it too. Thank you.

                              • L. B. Mek

                                how very kind, your comment conveys so much goodwill
                                and that rare, genuine quality
                                that's fast becoming an endangered trait, of humanity..
                                thank you! dear poetess
