Love this. So familiar with this archaic bad apartment heating nightmare. Yes worthy of a horror story never mind a poem!

Thought-provoking verses, Elisabeth. Thank you for sharing them. Love and best wishes,

I remember these nights I was kept awake by the pipes of the apartment complex I lived at in Queens, New York. A horrible way to spend your nights.

It is true that at times, circumstances (and individuals) can make us wonder how we can survive, never mind, thrive. A most meaningful write, Elisabeth. Love and best wishes to you,
Death of Hope (Poetry) - 10/20/2013 4:05:26 AM
enjoyed reading well done
love & peace
Death of Hope (Poetry) - 10/19/2013 9:19:28 PM
I had to read it twice but I was afraid to read into it and decided to leave it the way I originally thought...very well crafted work.
Death of Hope (Poetry) - 10/17/2013 7:38:26 AM
the truth can be this
Death of Hope (Poetry) - 10/16/2013 5:56:46 PM
I love this piece Elisabeth!
Death of Hope (Poetry) - 10/15/2013 12:59:43 PM
Sometimes the truth, while you know it's coming, is so distasteful that you'd rather that it's a lie.
Death of Hope (Poetry) - 10/14/2013 12:48:23 PM
I can too well relate.
The lie we need- I need one.
Death of Hope (Poetry) - 10/14/2013 12:44:22 PM
I cannot vouch that the truth will always set you free
but living with a lie is dying by the minute.
Death of Hope (Poetry) - 10/14/2013 11:13:10 AM
Love can sometimes be most complicated because some people do not know what love is. Thank you for sharing, Elisabeth. Love and best wishes,
Death of Hope (Poetry) - 10/14/2013 10:53:40 AM
Some ambiguous phrasing here, Elisabeth, but phrasing you manufactured to tell the tale. I believe I "got" it.
Thank You (Poetry) - 8/16/2013 12:04:52 PM
It is always so good to have friends such as these when the time comes. Beautifully written
Thank You (Poetry) - 8/6/2013 10:44:06 AM
That shows you, Elisabeth that you have True friends!
Thank You (Poetry) - 8/4/2013 7:57:58 AM
I can relate completely, Elisabeth. Thank you for sharing. Love and best wishes to you,
Thank You (Poetry) - 8/3/2013 2:32:02 AM
beautiful sentiments...and so good to know you have faithful friends, and beyond that, to know that you appreciate them!
Jesus can be a wonderful friend, too. "There is a friend who sticks closer than a brother," scripture says, and it's speaking of Him.
Thank You (Poetry) - 8/2/2013 11:37:42 PM
As long as you can write it is such a releif ,
It sure makes you stronger.
Thank You (Poetry) - 8/2/2013 5:32:36 AM
I pray things get better for you. Friends such as yours are hard to find!
Love and blessings,
Thank You (Poetry) - 8/1/2013 8:25:38 PM
Great expressive poetry Elisabeth.
It was good your friends were there to catch you. Many can let you down...
Peace be with you...
Thank You (Poetry) - 8/1/2013 11:10:09 AM
That is often the way it happens, Elisabeth. That is what friends do. I hope things are better.

No Words (Poetry) - 4/26/2013 9:17:55 AM
You're not fully revealing what the power over you was, but you are revealing your frustration with it. I hope that you will soon be free from this oppression, either by writing about it or otherwise.

Be a victim or fight - your choice.

Golden Man II (Poetry) - 3/29/2013 11:52:29 AM
Elisabeth, never compromise your credo for the sake of a man. The right man is out there and you will find him and receive the love and admiration you deserve. Be ever vigilant to guard against those who are not genuine and want to take advantage of you. This is a great poem written with compassion from the heart. I wish you love and peace my dear friend. Jon Michael Happy Easter

Diamonds and Dust (Poetry) - 3/18/2013 5:34:41 PM
We explore the elements of these comparisons in every decision we make, friend or foe, husband or wife, or not. You last two lines are the important sum and substance we should apply to all, "taking and giving, loving and living". So simplistic and yet so provocatively complex. I wish you love and peace my dear friend. Jon Michael

Diamonds and Dust (Poetry) - 3/16/2013 10:24:52 AM
“Jack Spratt could eat no fat, his wife could eat no lean.” Opposites attract, and if they don't explode, may have a long time together.
Very creative and thought provoking.
Diamonds and Dust (Poetry) - 3/16/2013 8:38:50 AM
And such is life it seems..., ...thank you for sharing, Elisabeth. Love and best wishes,
Diamonds and Dust (Poetry) - 3/16/2013 6:28:42 AM
Interesting comparisons like wheat and chaff,
good writers and dabblers.
Glad you fit the first category.
Diamonds and Dust (Poetry) - 3/16/2013 3:50:05 AM
Taking the opposites as you list things you want to remember for your own pleasure, or maybe displeasure. The bucket list has been balanced out.

most enjoyable reading
Peace be with you
Looking back (Poetry) - 3/9/2013 7:22:33 PM
Elisabeth, on balance we are fortunate if we have even a few of the really good days. Our challenges and the obstacles are numerous and formidable. They drive us to make everything better and to learn and share our knowledge with others. I thoroughly enjoyed this poem. I wish you love and peace my dear friend. Jon Michael
Looking back (Poetry) - 3/1/2013 9:49:36 PM
Well done poetic one!
Peace be with you and may love and blessings over flow from above.

you are so right everything in life has its future purpose
Looking back (Poetry) - 2/28/2013 2:24:47 PM
Memories, I guess we take the good ones and stick them away so we can call on them when we need to... (peace, Bob-)
Looking back (Poetry) - 2/28/2013 12:50:00 PM
The good days as opposed to the bad ones at least gives us a place to begin to understand the reason, and if there is a reason behind it somehow, someway, maybe it will all make sense . . .
Taken (Poetry) - 2/27/2013 8:20:52 AM
nice poem--but in defense of guys everywhere we never get the subtle hints women toss in our directions-sadly you have to tell us
This Is What I Want (Poetry) - 1/31/2013 8:08:30 AM
Not at all as beautiful and talented as you are I say go for it--well done

Beautifully poignant. The blue skies are oh so brittle! Thanks for continuing to share your gift!
Cloud (Poetry) - 11/27/2012 4:46:24 PM
A complex and emotionally resonant poem ~
Cloud (Poetry) - 11/27/2012 11:57:30 AM
Wonderful personification of natural events that evoke mental processes related to the personal experience we all have with soft clouds, warm sunshine, gentle breezes and other pleasant experiences of life on Eden.
Cloud (Poetry) - 11/27/2012 10:47:32 AM
a cumulous question to be pondered
Cloud (Poetry) - 11/27/2012 10:46:58 AM
Symbolically suggestive, your verses awaken thought, Elisabeth. Thank you. Love and best wishes,
Cloud (Poetry) - 11/27/2012 5:47:29 AM
Once stained, I'm afraid it will be with that par5icular cloud forever / Think hurricanes / That is an attempt the cloud is having trying to throw the stain from itself . . .
Beg, plead and cry (Poetry) - 8/2/2012 6:20:37 PM
I love your poetry--full of desire passion romance
Beg, plead and cry (Poetry) - 7/6/2012 12:26:14 AM
yes, it is a beautiful poem, Elisabeth,
and it's also very moving and demanding
on the emotions..but if this is personal
shake yourself into strength and self-assertion,
it's the only way.
the writing is fine indeed.
Strength to you!
Beg, plead and cry (Poetry) - 6/24/2012 10:46:07 PM
sad...when its too little, too late...and this can't be accepted. sad because...'healing'...can't begin until this can be accepted. thanks for sharing
Beg, plead and cry (Poetry) - 6/24/2012 7:24:06 AM
I'm with the others. Your poem is cathartic, but only prolongs your agony' causing you to be dependent on him for your love. You must recognize that you are still young and beautiful and that is only words that you are hearing that are trying to make you more dependent instead of free. Once you recognize that you are your own person and you don't need him, you'll be on your way to free yourself from his influence.
It's a beautiful poem, crying out for help, and we heard. But we can do nothing but encourage you and it is only you that can start writing beautiful poetry about something you love to write about.
Beg, plead and cry (Poetry) - 6/24/2012 6:26:10 AM
I agree with Jerry. Stomp and yell,,then leave him behind for someone who will treat you better.
Beg, plead and cry (Poetry) - 6/23/2012 1:13:16 PM
Don't beg, plead and cry. You're still appealing, supple, desirable and beautiful. Don't beg, plead and cry, instead shout, stomp your feet and laugh in his face as you turn and walk away . . .

These are much more than just thoughts, these words are the essence of you. enjoyed reading this Pierre
Priorities (Poetry) - 3/16/2012 4:51:01 PM
Family is very important, as is our relationships with others, so it is crucial to keep a sense of perspective.
You have conveyed that message in its simplest and most direct form.
Kudos to you
Priorities (Poetry) - 3/6/2012 8:11:47 AM
i take my hat off to 'you'. thanks for sharing.
Priorities (Poetry) - 3/4/2012 10:21:32 AM
A lovely sentiment. But we will be remembered much more for poetry than we will for adding to the population to establish family ties. We cannot be fulfilled through others, only through ourselves.
Priorities (Poetry) - 3/3/2012 8:21:01 PM
Short, sweet, and very meaningful; thank you for sharing, Elisabeth. Love and best wishes,
Priorities (Poetry) - 3/3/2012 4:01:20 AM
'Nuff said. But I'll say more. I heard an expression just recently and it when somewhat like this, "If it doesn't contribute to the family you have no reason to be doing it."
The Boundaries of Creation (Poetry) - 2/16/2012 2:32:33 PM
Pithy words of mind and thought, intellect and philosophy; a most worthy poem of your inner feelings. Joy L. hale
The Boundaries of Creation (Poetry) - 2/16/2012 7:07:05 AM
I like your shards. I have my own. They seem to reflect back to yours. Enslaved? Sometimes I feel that. Then I realize I have a functioning (still) brain. That can unslave us. Cage? Same philosophy as enslaved, our brain (functioning) can break the doors of the cage. And then . . . we look around and realize (maybe) that we have only opened a door to a much larger cage.
I adore poems that grab my intellect. This one did.
Black/White (Poetry) - 1/10/2012 11:46:06 AM
Very nice Elisabeth, yes indeed, you are a fragment of love, and love is everything.
I like your words here, they made me smile.
Unwritten Tale (Poetry) - 1/2/2012 11:55:52 AM
What a wonderful poem about the opportunity for transformation!
Happy New Year and blessings,
Unwritten Tale (Poetry) - 1/1/2012 3:39:16 AM
Absolutely, Elizabeth, you have begun the new year with truth and humor. May the coming twelve months be good to you.
World Full of Clones (Poetry) - 1/1/2012 12:21:32 AM
I love this moving and insightful and deep poem.
World Full of Clones (Poetry) - 12/31/2011 6:27:13 AM
Deep, probing and scary piece of work here, Elisabeth. Deep because you delved into the inner sanctum of the reader, a place where they might not feel comfortable going. Probing because of the questions you asked and the seemingly inability of receiving answers. And scary because of it deep, probing nature.
Catch 22 (Poetry) - 12/7/2011 4:54:41 AM
Very insightful piece, Elisabeth
Catch 22 (Poetry) - 12/6/2011 3:08:50 AM
Opposite is the essence of our life, we cannot define truth without lying, bad without good, nor warm without cold, what concept we could have about; the worst is when we forget about it, the other becomes "wrong" if her (he) doesn't agree with us and we are "right", and then personal or mass war comes at our door!
Thank you to remember us that.
Money Shy (Poetry) - 12/2/2011 1:08:26 PM
education, dedication are the two key prerequisites for making money today -- then you'll need a bit of luck to find a decent paying job -- from there on it is work, continue to learn, and save -- it is the only way I know to keep part of your money as most of it goes to the tax guys -- I bid you joy, love and peace my dear friend -- Jon Michael
Money Shy (Poetry) - 12/1/2011 2:37:01 PM
With an income of $1000?!
outgoings of $1001 = sadness.
outgoings of $999 = happiness.
I was once told to save 10% every month of my income. Thus, within a year you'll have a months pay in savings. In a decade, you'll have a years salary in savings.
AS we know, the lottery numbers are 3, 7, 12, 17, 21, 39, bonus 5. But it won't make yer happy.
Money Shy (Poetry) - 12/1/2011 10:34:11 AM
The lyrical lilt of your poem was so perfect, I enjoyed it immensely! Your words... hard hitting and right on. Keep writing, Elisabeth; I like your style.

Blue Note Sessions (Poetry) - 11/25/2011 7:09:19 AM
Elisabeth, you have taken a difficult emotion to discuss and made from it a tuneful poem -- I enjoy reading what you have rendered -- I bid you joy, love and peace my dear friend -- Jon Michael
Blue Note Sessions (Poetry) - 11/24/2011 11:07:56 PM
Very well written, I could almost see the painting.
Blue Note Sessions (Poetry) - 11/19/2011 4:01:45 PM
As I read this, I can feel the hits on the keys. Good write.

Sprout II (Poetry) - 10/17/2011 2:05:15 PM

He does look cherubic. I have a darling image in my mind of little sprouts, like chicks, following the momma tuft all around the garden. Lead on, oh flower; lead on.
Enjoyed the write. --Charlie

This is beautiful, Elisabeth. Oh, would that I had given the same thought so many, many years ago I would have peace in my waning years.

The Stage (Poetry) - 8/18/2011 2:49:23 PM
Your script moved "The Stage" in my direction Elisabeth. This is fine poetry with a message I understand. I bid you love and peace my friend. Jon Michael
The Stage (Poetry) - 7/17/2011 9:30:28 PM
Great ending--it really leaves the reader asking themselves more questions, good work.

Good pen. Funny, I know an online acquaintance whose name is Elizabeth and she lives in Barstow. :-)
Such a Sad Mess (Poetry) - 4/24/2011 7:16:25 AM
Spending money to buy affection is a doomed choice. When a woman becomes aware of the mechanism, she may keep manipulating, but will certainly end up despising too. A very dysfunctional interaction. Security and love are complementary and so are love and admiration.
Such a Sad Mess (Poetry) - 4/24/2011 3:34:16 AM
That everlasting question, the meaning of love, human love.
So many conditions, so many distorsions, so many expectations, so many different languages, so many perceptions making the dialog sometimes so deaf and dull.
I give but not what you want, I receive but not what I want, so everybody feel frustrated and deceived, and the heart becomes dry and crumbles away, prisoner of the cage of ego and his bars of beliefs and demands.
But always like the phenix, it can rise from the ashes. So no desperation, immortality is its true nature, waiting patiently the circumstances to bloom more and more splendidly and express the flagrance of pure love, his reality.
Nice poem and so lucid Elisabeth
Memory trails (Poetry) - 4/22/2011 5:03:24 AM
Elizabeth, the sparks of romance are brightly showering in your work. First encounters often hold magic that lingers even when there is no love. Who knows? If it is right for you, do it. I bid you love and peace my dear friend. Jon Michael
Such a Sad Mess (Poetry) - 4/22/2011 4:58:00 AM
Love and emotions go hand in hand. Beautiful write Elizabeth.
Newfie Hugs, Rose
Such a Sad Mess (Poetry) - 4/20/2011 3:32:57 PM
Sadly love and blind love often go hand in hand and if you love someone deep enough...you cannot see what others see.
Such a Sad Mess (Poetry) - 4/20/2011 1:34:21 PM
Very painful indeed sweet lady..great writing indeed...Hugsss..stay safe and well..
Such a Sad Mess (Poetry) - 4/20/2011 12:29:10 PM
Elisabeth, Yes, that happens quite a bit.
Such a Sad Mess (Poetry) - 4/20/2011 10:39:39 AM
Such pain and anquish revealed in this poem. Why do people do these things to others? (not really a question) Your words will ring true to many.
Peace, love and light,
Such a Sad Mess (Poetry) - 4/20/2011 9:34:59 AM
Wow- very well put.
As a result of one such case I was led to say- I do feel less sorry for those who waste their love- than those who love is wasted on.
We do well to be mindful about falling in to either catagory.
Such a Sad Mess (Poetry) - 4/20/2011 9:34:21 AM
THE PHONE WAS RINGING...IT MIGHT BE THEM! THEY DIDN'T EVEN 'HEAR' WHAT YOU SAID, ELIZABETH. SADLY, IN A SITUATION SUCH AS THIS, THIS IS THE WAY IT GOES. UNTIL THE ONE WHO IS HURTING ONE DAY 'WAKES UP' AND DECIDES THAT ENOUGH IS ENOUGH...ALL THE TALKING IN THE WORLD DOES ABSOLUTELY NO GOOD. THE ONLY THING ONE CAN DO IS 'PRAY' THAT THEIR 'AWAKENING' WILL COME SOON. WELL DONE AND ENJOYED. THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

Ode To Science (Poetry) - 4/16/2011 8:13:17 AM
You express a universal and timeless theme, Elisabeth. Nicely done. Thank you. Love and best wishes to you,
Ode To Science (Poetry) - 4/12/2011 4:46:29 AM
The obsession of course is for the ultimate truth. Just one simple, verifiable "fact" from which all other human postulates may be proved or disproved. "Ode to science" reveals the romantic, yet disciplined character of science to the layman in poetic beauty Elisabeth. I bid you love and peace my dear friend. Jon Michael
Ode To Science (Poetry) - 4/11/2011 4:37:54 AM
Wise and beautifully expressed.

Self Monitoring (Poetry) - 3/31/2011 1:59:56 PM
Elisabeth, I view the issue more as a value programming scenario. Professor Morris Massey's old, "who you are is where you were when" theory. Most of us are attuned to listening for credos that tend to support our own value programming and manrtas so that we are not constantly experiencing cognitive dissonance. Your "self monitoring" at first blush would seem to be more of a high or low self esteem issue to me? An interesting read my dear friend. I bid you joy love and peace. Jon Michael
Break down to (Poetry) - 3/28/2011 4:30:22 PM
Elisabeth, it is the will to defy the status quo that gets noticed and is ultimately embraced by those that have care. For those that do not appreciate the determination, hold no true value to us. I bid you peace,joy and love my dear friend. Jon Michael

Elegant sermon, Elisabeth, sermon
in the very best way without heaviness or clutter
Your words and lines are very beautiful,
as beautiful as your thoughts.
If (Poetry) - 3/24/2011 1:48:58 PM
Elizabeth, I'm happy to say you squeezed a lot of great lines
from that little word If. -gene.

I find your sentiments truly meaningful as I can relate to what you have expressed through your verses here, Elisabeth. Thank you. Love and best wishes to you,

A wise old Indian once laid a trail of petals to find his way out of a maze.
I think you have done the same here Elizabeth with the power of words.

"Live in the moment
for it is the happiest place to be."
That about says it, Elisabeth, and yes,
"This landscape around us holds the most beautiful scenery,"
Your message is eloquent and positive, a lift to the spirit.
Many Twists and Turns (Poetry) - 3/22/2011 3:02:33 PM
I like this and the sincerity that it states so well what is often right before our eyes but we are all too often blind to see...but yes we can always find our way back if we look hard enough.
Many Twists and Turns (Poetry) - 3/22/2011 12:08:46 PM
Innately wise, with a happy ending!

Wise words and a recipe for living in a chaotic life/world, Elisabeth. Thank you. Love and best wishes,

Great questions, Elisabeth,
that can't be fully answered by everyone
and that's where doubt and argument and the value of self lie;
a finely expressed challenge here.
Standard (Poetry) - 3/14/2011 8:47:21 AM
You pose some good questions in this one Elizabeth and ones I think we as poets must all question our hearts about when we write.
Standard (Poetry) - 3/14/2011 6:21:34 AM
Great writing sweet lady..enjoyed...Hugsss
Standard (Poetry) - 3/14/2011 5:22:17 AM

"I remember the day I set eyes upon the perfect man"
The heart shines Elizabeth when seen with the eyes of true love...for to love is to see perfect in all things...very well written piece.

Another great write shared by you Elizabeth.

Stormy weather (Poetry) - 2/5/2011 5:11:23 PM
I don't know what the story is, but your writing is highly evocative and the idea of a path found through difficult times is described step by step, very effectively. Lovely choice of words.
Stormy weather (Poetry) - 2/4/2011 2:40:34 AM
WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!! Liana Margiva
Stormy weather (Poetry) - 2/3/2011 6:45:27 PM
"The most coveted was the black rose,
the various layers of copper rust.
Peeled off one by one,
to uncover a core untouched".
This was written very well. The darkness mingled with light and the words of this poem are alive..excellent
Stormy weather (Poetry) - 2/3/2011 6:22:08 PM
interesting write! stormy weather indeed. Morgan
Stormy weather (Poetry) - 2/3/2011 5:56:08 PM
Love everthing here, Elisabeth:
word choices, images, word play, phrasing, line lengths.
Stormy weather (Poetry) - 2/3/2011 1:04:59 PM
Like the subtle little word plays in this one especfially the son of a socio.my. path was unclear..well done
Makes no sense at all. (Poetry) - 1/27/2011 8:16:53 PM
Great poem Elisabeth! Love the play on words.
Makes no sense at all. (Poetry) - 1/27/2011 3:39:16 PM
"...then why not be tall
instead of act tall"
yes, Elisabeth, that's it exactly.
Rocket Science (Poetry) - 1/22/2011 4:10:17 PM
Elisabeth, female human emotions are very complex. Especially to the average man. However I would think a rocket scientist would be more adept at figuring them out than the average Joe. It must be a case of desire more than ability. Good luck my dear friend. I bid you love and peace. Jon Michael

Lost (Poetry) - 1/17/2011 5:38:37 PM
Nice depth to this poem. I think as women, we must always be careful not to get swallowed up by another. I like how you show the progression of this situation, and how enough can be enough, even for the strongest person.
Lost (Poetry) - 1/17/2011 3:03:54 AM
BEAUTIFUL, VERY TALENTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Liana Margiva

Lost (Poetry) - 1/15/2011 5:34:38 PM
the sense of betrayal is strong and justifiably so in these well-constructed lines.

A sad revelation when the light of truth and wisdom shines and you see through new eyes...

They say love is blind...it is natural to want to believe and see the best in those we love, but eventually the reconstruction becomes so bizaarre we hardly recognise them ourselves...The problem then is..what to do next?...
Love and hugs, Diana...
Lost (Poetry) - 1/14/2011 7:01:13 AM
Wonderful. Sometimes it's so hard to want to believe a loved one's faults. We often turn a blind eye, as you've so eloquently expressed.
Lost (Poetry) - 1/14/2011 4:16:26 AM
I do not like people who lie either, and i have been around plenty.

If you are ambivalent, it is very difficult. A man's feelings are ambivalent most of the time.

Elizabeth, Always, follow your 'dreams'
Crossroad (Poetry) - 1/10/2011 6:08:18 AM
Ah, the crossroad. I hope you let your heart lead you into the best direction.

Destiny is in the choice.
Crossroad (Poetry) - 1/9/2011 7:15:55 PM
Your question is a universal and timeless one, Elisabeth. May you always choose the way that is good for you. Love and best wishes,
Crossroad (Poetry) - 1/9/2011 5:32:21 PM
The way of consensus is not always right. Twixt heart and head there is often a fight. Test your spirit, if you hear it. Then choose, and run with all your might.
Crossroad (Poetry) - 1/9/2011 11:14:07 AM

Elisabeth, hope does spring eternal my dear friend. You have captured the spin we each place upon our own destinies. I love this expression. It inspires the human spirit to move above and beyond. I bid you love and peace. Jon Michael
Growing Pains (Poetry) - 1/2/2011 6:40:21 AM
nice work...life is but our dreams and the ups and downs of finding ourselves before we reach that final curtain...
Happy New Year!!!
Growing Pains (Poetry) - 1/2/2011 5:22:55 AM
Wise words indeed...we are all the navigators and captains of our own fates...so we must guide ourselves carefully following the charts and navigation tools our creator provided.
Rocket Science (Poetry) - 1/2/2011 5:18:50 AM
LOL I have to disagree on this one Elizabeth, for a woman's mind although a wonderful thing is in no way simple and uncomplicated and neither is her heart... but I know what you are trying to say.
Rocket Science (Poetry) - 1/1/2011 12:12:08 PM
lol. Some men never get it and some come by it so naturally. It's a wonder. Love it. Liz
Poorly Disguised Arms (Poetry) - 12/24/2010 4:16:49 PM
Very well done
How about that? (Poetry) - 12/13/2010 4:56:59 AM
Elisabeth, I like this exercise where you have poetically gathered empirical data on psychological postulates. Try that mile in someone else's shoes and then by all means, walk it in your own shoes. Experience everything from your own perspectives and develop your unique stride in life. Anything less deprives you of the joys of living and self expression. Bravo! I bid you love and peace my dear friend. Jon Michael
Sweet Girl (Poetry) - 12/12/2010 6:07:44 AM
Your thoughts give one the inside view of a mothers relationship with her daugther, and the acceptance of where she is and how she will tackle the world...
Right Then Cowboy (Poetry) - 12/12/2010 6:05:06 AM
Sometimes the truth is hard to swallow though it is also more favorable to accept ones fault and move forward upon the realization of the truth... a very nice work of this exposed subject...
Poorly Disguised Arms (Poetry) - 12/11/2010 10:21:38 PM
Is it that much different? Hmmm?
Right Then Cowboy (Poetry) - 12/10/2010 7:42:10 AM
this is superb Elisabeth!
Takes me back in time
when someone called me ignorant
I stood for a second and asked why
(as I initially felt I was being insulted)
oddly though...I was being educated
as that word alone has many perceptions
