Notice of absence from LIZ

Broken words drive my pen, spilling secrets that I've kept. But my ink's not scared of them; voicing things I dare not say.

A confession in a way, draped in rhyme, finding strength. Thoughts that fall out of my brain, when my mind can't find its way.

Each expression leads the way, and explains my inner state. Oozing lines, written terms, of emotions that won't rest!

The releasing of a verse, when my mouth's too dry to spell. Dripping feelings that I've kept, with the sweetest aftertaste!

        When it comes to taste .. you clearly have it ..
        but its that sweet aftertaste that lingers isn't it that always does it ..

        it seems we have been thinking along similar lines already .. while confessions may be good for the soul and for poetry .. remember folks, its condoms are good for the economy .......... πŸ’œsorry, couldn't resist .. Neville

        • LIZ

          Ahhhhhh yes that aftertaste!! It's the best! Neville!! You and I are definitely

              Telling the untold and unsaid Liz... Lovely lines, too sublime... This is why I love poetry.

              • LIZ

                Awwwww thank you! Me too!!

              • Misunderstood

                I used to have that feeling, of relief purging my feelings on paper. Getting that exhale expelling what’s been weighing you down.

                You have displayed every feeling I used to take away from writing.

                Beautiful confessional.

                I hope people continue to seeing you for you and your writing will continue to be your therapy.

                • LIZ

                  Thank you very much! Writing is definitely therapy for me. πŸ™

                • orchidee

                  Anything of DEEP concern cropped up? 😁
                  And why did I turn up to write this useless comment?! Cooeee, goodnight soon! lol.

                  • LIZ

                    Nah nah 🀣🀣

                      • peto

                        Well worth the wait
                        A tremendous confession draped in rhyme
                        Extremely subtle
                        Yet so powerful
                        "Voicing things I dare not say"
                        You don't seem shy or the type to hold back
                        Makes this line even more powerful

                        • LIZ

                          Awwwww thank you so much!! I usually don't hold back.... but sometimes....you know?? 🫣🫒

                          Your lines are so profoundly beautiful. Heartfelt and cathartic, they resonate with new found confidence and liberation. You go girl!

                          • LIZ

                            Thank you very much Bella!! 🧑🧑🧑
