|How those "half-ass admissions" must be fully redeemed by this full-ass confession, Amigo! :)) Too much is just not enough of this kind of Foresian pillow-talk when you come to us defences down and breathing soft and easy, in full confidence you will be heard. Glad you didn't suppress this one: is this the song you said the music publisher dumped?! LOL!! This suits your voice of recital so well and the rhythms flow without effort; it begins and ends perfectly with all that is necessary between. In short, a perfect utterance, whole and complete, totally real and totally natural. A couple of days ago I had a canticle going on in my brain that was after the manner of: "In you I am... welcomed, accepted, known, honoured, respected, made beautiful, loved, etc., ending with: "In you I know I am". I'm sure all sides of this poetic equation are convinced of what, who and where they are in relation to your words here of honest outpouring. Graceful, trusting, faithful and adoring: you know well the muse(s) to which you appeal and of which you speak! Onward sailing undoubtedly assured! Sweet dreams, Kartero! xx|

|this, Jude, is one of the most beautiful poems

|The journey from adoration to actually knowing a person is a roller coaster ride; soaring to the highest of peaks and dropping into the most frightening of downward slides. I feel that it is wrong to appologize for who we are, it makes it too easy to continue the hurtful behavior whenever it serves us. I find it much more rewarding to look myself and at the situation and understand that it is not a matter of how much do I want to be with this person but that there is no way I want to be without them. With that knowledge, I can begin gently, willfully adapting in ways that make the relationship stronger and able to withstand the transitions and difficult times. Pungent flavors arouse the psyche in this excellent offering, Jude.

|If an apology like this doesn't work, perhaps a dozen roses or chocolate or a bottle of wine, or you could just let her beat you silly, that would be the route I would take...;-) e|

|You appear to be seduced by the deep in this one. The sea, she is a fickle lover, calm one day and fearful the next.

These song lyrics come to the center of my core after reading this most inspired and heartfelt poem you have masterfully penned:
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here
You're in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here
May your angel reach out and comfort you and hold on as tight as she can, never letting go, you are one amazing man and poet.
Thank you for sharing your heart and soul in this one, it is simply breathtaking poetry!
Peace, light, and love,

|Jude, This is one of the most beautiful poems I have ever absorbed..truly touches the heart with emotions....
"and I’ve proved to be nothing but a sea of doubt for you to endlessly sail upon" ... No doubt in my mind it is Never 'nothing but' though this line truly is beautiful anyway!

|jude, life is filled with complexities, not the least of which is love - yet without it, nothing else can be valued - we all become weighted with our insecurities and egocentric faults, searching, and as a result can miss the love standing beside us, staring at us through "the sweet breath of their eyes" - I wish you love and peace my dear friend - Jon Michael|

|I heard every word of this poem. I'm there myself. Love. Why is it such a simple thing to fall in love, but afterward love has so many dips and curves, that for the long run you hardly recognize it for what it once was?|

|The longing, cries a sea of tears, for your golden gondala to hold you up, you and your angel, most beautiful introspective poem Jude.|
|Reviewed by Felix Perry
|In todays world of electronic marvels and magic loving and being loved still is the most complicated action the human race has to deal with. Although it is said by many that love should come natural and just "be" the truth is it is not that easy. We can love too much or not enough, we can love but not be loved, we can confuse lust for love and so many tangibles such as morality, peer pressures, jealousy and other emotions often confuse the heart and the mind. Your poem gave me pause to think and wonder about love and how easily it can be found...and sadly...lost.

|...and I do believe she will...I know her to be your twin spirit...apologetic love is to be revered and revived...what a beautiful piece of poetry this is...me and you go so far back I recognize this side of you and the stars shine so bright tonight. you, too, shine with a brilliance of proposal...a sage of so long ago with a blueprint of that special "golden gondola"...that image is priceless...
