|I PRAY THAT THIS DOESN'T SOUND...RASH OR HEARTLESS, BUT...THIS PAIN YOU WERE FEELING IS DESCRIBED SO BEAUTIFULLY THAT ONE IS ALMOST GRATEFUL THAT YOU EXPERIENCED IT. I KNOW YOU COULD HAVE DONE WITHOUT IT...I KNOW IT HURT TERRIBLY AND I AM SORRY, BUT...I SO APPRECIATE THIS 'TREASURE' THAT YOUR BROKENESS BROUGHT FORTH. THANKS FOR SHARING THIS EXCELLENT PIECE...GOD BLESS AND LOVE,

|Very powerful, Regis. All these wonderful things turn dark as the heart breaks. I love your description of the moon...the sneer. Also the butterflies/leaves. One of my favorites from you:) Love and Hugs,

|I decided to delve into some of your past poetry, Regis, and I'm glad I did. This is such a beautiful and poignant piece that perfectly conveys the feelings of lost love and togetherness. I'm afraid it's too familiar at times, but it's also a lovely thing. So, even though it has its sad side, you uplifted me anyway...Jerry|

If Voltaire were alive today, he would have said, "French is my language, but love is Regis' language." Your poem is definitely a piece of piece of art. Well conveyed!

|Sometimes the pain from a loss is only harboured in the deepest corners of our subconscious only to submerge if just from the smell of a single flower. I feel the pain and saddness from your words. Great job Regis!|

This poem says much about your feelings. It tells of pain, sadness, and tears- but it ends with you still having hope. Never leaving- never giving up. That is good.
Love and Blessings,

|This is chilling. Leaves questions: Did she die? Leave you and make you think she was coming back until she winked? Have you had a lot of death and you cannot follow your loved ones? Or are they all off to new things and you're stuck/ Don't answer. My mind loves playing with these things. Good job|
|Reviewed by Kate Burnside
|Totally knockout, Regis, and a pulsating, finger-on-the-button write as always. You have an amazing ability to be able to capture the quintessence of a special moment and to freeze-frame it with your own brand and stamp of authentication. Especially in the case of what you are describing here. The lines "It seems that all Are getting up to leave But me I cannot" just totally blow me away: you sound like me - if I am "stuck in the moment", I can't believe how others can be just "getting on with life". The burning retina/eye thing really strikes a chord, too. Scintillating as always, but I am so sorry for your pain. "Goodbye" is not a word I am good with at the best of times... it is even worse when the parting is not equally balanced and felt. BIG HUGS!! lol kATE XX|

|This leaves me collapsed and empty, Regis, as I feel the change that has left a hole in your soul. It feels so much like a death that has taken away the breath of your spirit. We all must trudge onward. Excellent writing!
|Reviewed by Katy Walsvik
|"Your music ended..."
Sheer poetry, Regis... a simple expression with huge impact! You need not preface as you have up there, for you are among "your own" here and Ed's correct... the healing process, for we who write, begins with scraping our gut and putting it into words. This is one of your best from a poetry standpoint AND from a human one. katy xox
