Hi guy's and gal's, sorry I haven't been as active as I would've liked of late, but life suddenly got busy, 3 jobs etc... I promise I have written some new stuff but I haven't had time to edit it all...anyway it's mostly self-indulgent crap, on how shitty life is to me. Devastated is still top of my vocabulary list...So just to add a little emphasis, here's another re-post along those lines...sorry. Funny how shit stirs the muse...ah well.

It's Strange

It's strange what you can write...

When you've been swept of your feet

by someone you’re occasioned to meet.

When you’re on an emotional high

When you think you've met someone special

a rainbow star that fell from the sky.

When you’re disappointed to find they have another…

When you can't help the way you feel

When your insides wriggle like an eel

When your love, lust, desire, passion

call it what you will

gets bottled up, and makes you ill.

When your love must go unrequited

When you feel blighted

When you wish you was someone else

When you feel like you've been left on the shelf

When you hope in your heart of hearts

that the friendship will last forever

although, love would have been a nice start.

When you wonder if they feel the same as you

will it be the start of something new?

When you live in hope

When you feel a dope...

... Yeah!

It's strange what you can write

When you’re on your own

in the middle of the night.

"It's Strange" flows on the river of loneness making waves of sadness all the way to the lake of tolerance.

Issues of the heart are always muse to beautiful and complex writes. This is wonderful and so wonderful at this point you were swept off your feet :).

I've written some deep things in the middle of the night so I too can definitely relate to this. Excellent write.

The best thing about this, Paul, is that we can probably all relate to it, and yet that's the terrible thing too; we can all relate to unrequited love. You're a wonderful writer. ~~Nordette

I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about, Paul. Life is a dream-a vision of my imagination that is. You write with such honest emotion, unveiled and shared with us so openly. I'm green. In more ways than one...Love, Lin

Is it me, or does this strike such a chord with us all that it is, in fact, hilariously funny?? Probably I'm completely up the shoot and hysterical, Paul, but I just detect a cameraderie and a frisson of self-knocking humour here... uh-oh... hope it's not quite the opposite - that you're desperately self-possessed and serious instead. Otherwise it's me that's dealin another shitty blow. My antennae are completely busted atdemo, so please ignore me if I'm gettin this all wrong. But, what is very, very right about this write is that it absolutely ROCKS and is so upfront and honest I just wish I wrote it... cept it might not sound like me, but is how I might feel if I were you... on second thoughts, looks like I am totally screwed and just need to toddle off to bed. But I really like this, Paul, and I like you for writing it and... oh dear... what am I gonna be like under anaesthetic if I'm like this on Ovaltine?! You're not on the lookout for a humorist by any chance, are you?! LOL :)) Kate xx

Understand this one cause I have been there myself more then once I am afraid to admit but often some of our best works come int the still of the night.

Love the last three lines

It's strange what you can write
when you're on your own
in the middle of the night

It's the time of the night when you have to face yourself...

Wonderful write Paul...

peace, Carole

Yeah... funny what triggers the muse. This poem reads like my life only better written! What shows through this, is the poet's strength of character to be able to turn a bad experience into good reading and definitely on a subject most can relate to. Thumbs up!

Paul, well said, I hope you're not feeling that now, but if you are, methinks you have lots of company;-) I sometimes wonder how the hell it all goes wrong when it seems so right at first.Besides the world doing somersaults it seems we are doing them right along with it.Guess this is topsy turvy time;-)Hope you'll soon have your balance back. Keep writing, and don't be hard on yourself life is tough enough...
