|As I have stated before, this style of writing is not my favourite. However, what you have expressed through your verses is a theme with which I am far too familiar and, as I read, the wounds are reopened. That means your poetry "speaks" to the depth of my being as it brings tears. Love and best wishes,

|It's good you can keep conditional love, some are not capable of doing this. Those that cannot do not know how to love
|Reviewed by Lily of Lough Neagh C. Dennis-Woosley
|It is very heartbreaking when you have known someone for a long time and have them walk away from you not even willing to be friends. Thank you everyone for the lovely reviews
Love and Light

|It's not love if it is conditional. To me it reads like you gave your all and devotion then when you parted he could not even hold you as a friend. I believe that happens this day and age.

|You have very clearly shown how the rake operates when he seduces a woman and then leaves her in the lurch. It's so easy for them to do it again and again because he has a condition to his love that she does not. Touching, but oh so true.

|Carol, When I love it is unconditional, excepting the bad with the good. For the most part it works out...

|My dear dear Lily, how sad that another would treat you in this way. A fine lady you are and well respected by many here. Such a sadness to this artistic poem of yours.
I bow and tip my hat to you
|Reviewed by Adriaen Valerius (Reader)
|This is really sad. When "love" is conditional, you may not call it love anymore as it is selfish and devaluated to a medium of exchange.
Whatever you write about, you make a great work of it

|Love sucks more times than it pleases I think, Carol. For some men, and I was one for a large port of my life, Love is exactly what you relate so eloquently here . . . Conditional. Sorry I am late getting to this. AOL has been down, plus other problems.|

|And in such sadness growth is evident... and obviously needed.|

|So very sad, indeed.|
|Reviewed by Budd Nelson
such a sad account, conditional love is not what i call love. who ever he is, it is his loss. Even in sadness your pen and spirit come through your words beautifully.

|So sad, these conditional connections. Well penned and poignant.|
|Reviewed by John Domino
|This is a sad yet very well expressed poem one can relate about too many relationships today. This conditional love bears little or no fruit. The alternative unconditional "Agape" love of Jesus provides healthy fruit so that relationships can blossom and grow joyful.
Peace and love,

|It seems that no matter what you write, though it be sad, it comes out beautiful! Pain spurs growth and growth is beautiful.

|I can't imagine what would inspire this. I love without condition and forever. Wonderful write though just not a happy one, which I I favor in your writings.
Stay well and keep writing
