"AS LONG AS"
As long as there is breath in my lungs,
As long as my heart continues to beat,
As long as blood circulates in my veins,
I'll write until I'm covered with a sheet.
As long as my Muse still inspires me,
As long as my fingers curl 'round a pen,
As long as someone takes the time to read,
I'll write, because I love writing poems.
As long as someone encourages me,
As long as I still love the written word,
As long as I have the passion to write,
I'll write even if my voice isn't heard.

|You spoke for all of us true writers. We have to write even if we know no one will read. It is a sad and lonely existence at times, especially if we are too wrapped up in it to not let people we love and who love us inside our hearts. I made that mistake onec, never again.|

|HEARING YOU LOUD AND CLEAR, KARLA!! You'll be writing from here into infinity and beyond BECAUSE THAT'S WHO YOU ARE - born to write! You have just premeditated my thoughts because I'm working up to a kind of "au revoir" (because of my college commitments! :((() with thoughts about the value and necessity of each of our own unique voices in this "poetic chorus" here at The Den. AND WE'D SURE MISS YOU IF YOU DIDN'T WRITE! So just you keep filling our hearts and minds with butterflies, bees, whatever, because we'd be the poorer without you - so says the mouthy little Brit who is just so grateful for the opportunity of your joint poetic friendships over the past few months... KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, POET! lol kATE XX ps Love your new nom de plume - it really suits you!|
