A new one from my collection, written just this evening. I am wondering if you could give me some feedback on whether my Poetry could be published and received well. I hope that you will all speak your mind. Thanks, Ed.


Many lifetimes make up my existance;
some happy,
some fair,
others nightmarish.

Various relationships come quickly and done;
memories of them fuzzy,
blending into one.
Aquaintances, turning into friendships too few;
pushed away by uncertain fears,
inabilities of closeness
regretful without tears.

Comfort only a relative state;
constant anxieties,
a rush to get away but never far enough.

 Ingrained, learned behaviors
begin this second life;
hours spent in reflection,
making sense of imagined strife.

Once upon a time,
I'd climb into a bottle;
but I found the glass too clear,
the problems that I have
showed through that drink so near.

 Now in this part of lifetime,
it seems easier to stand alone;
no leaning to be had,
whether it's on or upon.

I drive a truckload
filled with my baggage collected;
dumping off pieces as I go along,
hoping that they won't recycle.

 Many of the bridges
over which I carry my load,
are burned behind me
caused by this undealt - with overload.

Many of the bridges
are beyond repair now,
so perhaps the best I can do is go back
and take care of the baggage which continues to drag behind me

Oh boy you certainly are not alone in this arena. We all carry baggage, try to repair what we can and hopefully have the strength to just let go of what we cannot. Your poetry is beautiful, from your heart, sometimes from within the core fibers of your being! Of course you should consider publishing. Besides you will never really know unless you try, right?? Me, I would much rather try and fail, then never to have tried.

Be safe,

Going back to the beginning and starting over again now that you know what things you don't need to bring with you on this journey. I'd rebuild the bridges in case others need to travel that road also. Leave the baggage you got now in storage then forget to pay the rent...Good write. Combine your writings that tell the story of your lifeline. Others could use the timeline to follow and see their future. Lady J
