|Don't we all experience this form of exercise once or twice in our lifetime? If it gives relief to the aching heart, well, it can't be so futile. Well penned, Sheri.

|Love and longing practically jump off the page. GREAT JOB !!
Hope this is fiction. If not, that it is about 'ancient' history.
Don't want you to be down!

|This is very heartfelt and full of pain with the ending being the punch line. There are many of us that have had more than our share of exercises in futility, only to go back and exercise again. This poem shows the thoughts of a person who is wondering why she/he keeps going through that exercise of futility. All I can Sheri is, we have all been there a time or two, maybe more. Thank you for sharing.
May the Lord Bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and walk by your side. With love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your den sister Barbie

|I keep wondering
Like a fool who blindly seeks
A never ending reality
I need to stop this exercise of futility.

|The book for you, my dear Sheri, is "He's Just Not That Into You" by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo.
It's been highly successful in sales, most likely since an enormous number of women endure the same feelings you express in "Exercise Of Futility."
But while the book takes a somewhat clinical approach, your posted work shares deep feelings with us. I like your version better!

|Sheri, lovely, lonely, longing to be reunited -- the questions the breaking heart seeks answers to -- "Go Blame It On Midnight" --"Shame on the Moon" -- a Bob Segar rendition of a Rodney Crowell song -- silence is the mortal morass of perpetual grieving -- move away from those places into the light of hope and promise -- energy is oozing with the passion of your write my friend -- you said this thing with style and understanding -- may peace and love be always with you -- Jon Michael|
