|Childhood memories - good and bad - i've them also.|
|Reviewed by CJ Heck
|It sounds like you had a difficult childhood, John. My inner child's heart reaches out to yours with a hug. It always amazes me -- volumes are spoken in a poem, and though the lines are few, the pain is faced, embraced, and there is a cleansing that comes from feeling the words as we are writing them. Well done, John, well done.
Hugs to you,

|I feel it John, my mother was a perfectionist too. I couldn't eat eggs when I was a child they made me sick. She would cook them for breakfast and if I didn't eat them I would still be sitting there that evening when my Daddy came home, then to bed with no supper. This poem goes deep into your memories and wounds. I'm so sorry for your pain.|

|Double spaced...lines in between could solve the mystery...
lessons learned? Ponderings enough to read more than once
cleverly penned by John.

|Spilt milk or sour milk, it's 6 of one and half dozen of the other. Or is it? Nice write John, but I think there were probably other factors at work here.
