Your poetry is exceptional. A true Artist that paints with words.
Created Souls (Poetry) - 3/23/2015 11:03:35 PM
Seems like your soul is tormented. I pray you find inner peace. This piece made me cry.

I Can (Poetry) - 1/5/2011 12:43:02 PM
Very well written. However, I am a bit concerned that you title duplicates that of mine from thirteen years earlier. The "I Can" poem that I pen created the term Afr-i-can Amer-i-can. A lot of history was associated with this copyrighted work prior to your composition.
B r e a k i n g (Poetry) - 11/3/2010 11:05:49 AM
That was great...I can definitely relate. But if we don't stand for something, we'll fall for everything. This was a really nice poem.
Crystal Rain (Poetry) - 2/11/2009 8:53:48 PM

Abolish Selfish Dreams (Poetry) - 12/3/2008 12:40:35 PM
i like this.....
Splinter (Poetry) - 6/25/2007 11:56:18 AM
I am not so sure this is dark as it is undeniably true...and sad.
This is a grand illustration of unseen and or ignored injury....whether on a personal level or world level. Well done, my friend.
Splinter (Poetry) - 4/29/2007 12:26:08 PM
Isn't it so, as the splinter that hides beneath the skin giving one pain and yet so small that one cannot see it, only feel it's presence....your thoughts just like the heart that beats and bleeds from broken dreams and the hopelessness of life....
really nice work....
The Wanderers (Poetry) - 6/5/2006 5:28:42 AM
We all wonder through this life, you capture the essence of daily life and the frustration of moving forward in life away from the past into the unknown future. R

From Gold To Gray (Poetry) - 6/5/2006 5:21:12 AM
A list of life's reality as you have felt them--Enjoyed the thoughts, makes one look to make the mistakes of yesterday better.

excellent poem Erica ... you do the craft an honor ...

I understand grief. Time helps me with the pain, hopefully it helps you too.
Dark Seductress (Poetry) - 4/18/2005 10:14:15 AM
Thanks for sharing Erica!!
Hope things will be better for you soon!!
Dark Seductress (Poetry) - 4/18/2005 12:14:54 AM
Your "take" on death is very close to my own. In my books death is called Nox and is served by Moribus, the black cat. When Moribus cries out it is time for Nox to take a soul.
Your poem is both beautiful and truthful. if ever you have time drop by Rondel's Coffeehouse at network54.com That's my website.
Dark Seductress (Poetry) - 4/17/2005 5:53:01 PM
Odd how physical beauty can lure people even when the soul of that same person is evil, uncaring and mean. We often only see what we want to see and in doing so are often misled and deceived. Excellent poem, Erica!
Fighting Fire With Gasoline (Poetry) - 3/12/2005 8:43:16 AM
very clever, I very much enjoyed this.
Bottom Of Your Totem Pole (Poetry) - 2/28/2005 7:51:20 PM
How sad, how painful. Evocative, well-written piece.

it's always wise to know when to run from a fire ...

Fighting Fire With Gasoline (Poetry) - 2/22/2005 8:43:52 PM
Powerful write Erica!!
Fighting Fire With Gasoline (Poetry) - 2/22/2005 7:58:21 PM
There is a lot of strength in this piece, Erica. When there is nothing left to salvage, it is best to move on and live your life for yourself. You are only granted so much time and to spend it in a burnt out relationship, for the sake of saying you did, is a waste of a lifetime. Excellent write!
Fighting Fire With Gasoline (Poetry) - 2/22/2005 5:24:09 PM
Wow! Powerful painful write with a strong positive ending.
Fighting Fire With Gasoline (Poetry) - 2/22/2005 4:54:51 PM
As one set free, it is a different world-such a different world.
Fighting Fire With Gasoline (Poetry) - 2/22/2005 4:48:40 PM
Nice write. I agree with Sue.
Fighting Fire With Gasoline (Poetry) - 2/22/2005 3:17:33 PM
I must say that both Dave and Sue put it very well.
Fighting Fire With Gasoline (Poetry) - 2/22/2005 2:30:10 PM
The Bible says that you have to lose it, to find it. Like Sue stated sometimes you have to quit - to win. 12-step groups say you need to surrender, before a new life can begin. Very empowering write...
Fighting Fire With Gasoline (Poetry) - 2/22/2005 2:15:49 PM
Oh, boy....don't know if this is autobiographical or not, but speaking as one who has just escaped from almost 20 years of that same living death, I can attest that it rings true.
Fighting Fire With Gasoline (Poetry) - 2/22/2005 1:41:02 PM
this is a poem of empowerment
Fighting Fire With Gasoline (Poetry) - 2/22/2005 1:29:37 PM
sometimes you just have to quit. good poem

A haunting capture of torment.
Created Souls (Poetry) - 2/21/2005 6:35:22 PM
Sherry came up with an adequeate description of what I would say. And yes we have the ying and the yang of things within us.
Created Souls (Poetry) - 2/21/2005 6:08:32 PM
We all are multi-faceted beings, Erica; we all have dicisions to make in life. We are weak and strong, kind and selfish, happy and sad. It is the ying and yang that is all things. This is a wonderful poem. You always dig deep with your writes, deliver a strong message and never disappoint the reader.
Created Souls (Poetry) - 2/21/2005 6:04:23 PM
But we can find ourselves on a sabatical..
Hope you find what you really want, and have the courage and dogged determination to pursue it..

this is a woderfully felt piece.....
hurt and sad~ness of that you fel you can't be or have

you'll be surprised what can/will happen
Last Bubble (Poetry) - 2/14/2005 12:18:18 PM
This is why writers like yourself have to keep writing, Erica...
Snow Angels (Poetry) - 2/14/2005 12:12:29 PM
Oh, don't they remind you of childhood?! Kisses, indeed, from heaven...This poem is soft and gentle as a first snow.
The Wanderers~ (Poetry) - 2/14/2005 12:07:28 PM

David's Forest/ A Brothers Hug A Brothers Kiss (Poetry) - 2/14/2005 11:35:32 AM
I cry for your loss. It seems that he was an inspiration to everyone.
One Last Tear (Poetry) - 2/14/2005 11:24:05 AM
Encapsulates teenage "angst" to perfection, Erica. Every emotion is taken to the max...the moment is all there is. Its painful to remember!
Club Of Lies (Poetry) - 2/14/2005 11:19:01 AM
What else can we do, it's so hard to trust again...simple and honest in it's stark beauty, Erica.
Wrap Me Up (Poetry) - 2/14/2005 11:11:04 AM
This reminds me of a little saying that my mother was fond of using, "!#$.* or get off the pot!". Great tune, Erica!
Disillusioned (Poetry) - 2/14/2005 11:04:25 AM
Some men have an image of the "ideal" woman in their minds. When it seems they have found her in human form, they worship at her feet. But when the illusion has faded and they see that she is a mere mortal, they drop her as undesirable. The woman either loses herself in his image of her and tries to maintain the illusion (in vain), or drops the poor misguided soul after she's onto his game. If this is a real experience-Just remember, Erica, that nothing is wasted! Cry your tears and then bless the experience for teaching you a valuable lesson...
She Wonders (Poetry) - 2/14/2005 10:50:04 AM
I wonder how many people, in those last few moments of life, wish they could turn back the clock...haunting write, Erica
Bottom Of Your Totem Pole (Poetry) - 2/13/2005 4:52:18 PM
When we least expect, someone can turn the world upside down.
You belong in the sky.

I think that my niece could have written this one. Excellent write here.
Bottom Of Your Totem Pole (Poetry) - 2/13/2005 10:18:53 AM
Powerful write with a great message within it. I would say you are beyond his expectations and flowing towards the man that deserves such a pearl. Swine never understand the light.
Bottom Of Your Totem Pole (Poetry) - 2/13/2005 9:50:41 AM
You only got one life girl. And it's not to be humiliated by someone who cares not.
You gotta be you, not some-ones accessory, show thing...
Bottom Of Your Totem Pole (Poetry) - 2/13/2005 9:44:38 AM
Emotionally touching piece Erica!!
Take Care and Be well!!

She Wonders (Poetry) - 2/12/2005 11:15:24 AM
We all wonder at one time or the other but what we will do if we got a second chance is a question hard to answer, Erica.

Well this is a very powerful message in this write. This does make you wonder.
She Wonders (Poetry) - 2/11/2005 10:02:58 AM
maybe she just wanted to lay out the cards
then play with a full deck?
She Wonders (Poetry) - 2/11/2005 9:40:53 AM
Life's mysteries. Wonder how we get through sometimes.
She Wonders (Poetry) - 2/11/2005 6:52:59 AM
Maybe written long ago, but still has the same impact that it should have. A questioning of a fateful decision. Good to see you again, Erica.
Disillusioned (Poetry) - 2/11/2005 2:15:15 AM
Erica....deep write as usual from you....hope this is only a fiction...cheers...love n luck...BHUWAN!!
Disillusioned (Poetry) - 2/10/2005 8:08:42 PM
So much to learn in this.
We can't take so much for granted, but must learn to see...letting go of ourselves so we don't impose on the picture.
Disillusioned (Poetry) - 2/10/2005 4:59:25 PM
Epitomizes disillusion. Hope it's just a poem.
Club Of Lies (Poetry) - 2/10/2005 11:38:27 AM
Other than the fact that I had to do a lot of scrolling down (is this just my computer?), I was glad that I made the effort to read this poem. You have a wonderful style and deliver your message effectively. I will enjoy reading more of your work.
Write on... Chanti
Disillusioned (Poetry) - 2/10/2005 11:28:46 AM
This is such a poignant poem and it brought back painful memories for me. I know only too well how this feels. Why do those that claim to love, want to destroy the object of their affections when the romance is over? Surely it is better to leave a person with their dignity. I pray that you find the kind of love that provides you recognition for the beautiful person you are.
Thank you for sharing
Disillusioned (Poetry) - 2/10/2005 11:13:05 AM

Disillusioned (Poetry) - 2/10/2005 10:08:59 AM
It is indeed powerful and reminds me of the wife who has gone through abuse. There is a better life though. And there are men who treat you like the angel that one deserves to be treated.
Disillusioned (Poetry) - 2/10/2005 9:42:45 AM
this is so powerful...........and the emotions roar with wisdom, insight and pain.
Club Of Lies (Poetry) - 2/10/2005 9:20:14 AM
so many wear this hat
one size fits all......such a shame
but......you have expressed this personality so well
Disillusioned (Poetry) - 2/10/2005 9:13:45 AM
ah but you can build yourself up now that you are no longer an illusion. the worse place in the world is on someone's pedestal, the fall is so brutal. this is an excellent poem on that subject
Club Of Lies (Poetry) - 2/10/2005 7:37:20 AM

This is beautiful. You did a wonderful job. I know you are hurting, but you expressed this poem so well. The poem you commented on my site
"Death Can Be Beautiful" was written by my mother, several years before she died. I am glad it helped, and again, wonderful tribute to your brother. Katie

Very holy, truthful, beautiful, intimate, passionate, courageous, and powerful. Your words were not that of a self willed heart, but a loving and submissive spirit. Thank you for the truthful questions in your poetry that cries out for the wisdom of God, and forces all of those who reads it to be honest with themselves. God bless you, and continue in excellency.

Life is full of though choices and many winding roads, one can only hope for the best but be prepared for the worst. Very unique well-penned composition.
Splinter (Poetry) - 9/28/2004 9:44:40 PM
A painfully well-developed heartfelt composition! Excellent work.
Last Bubble (Poetry) - 9/28/2004 9:40:55 PM
Itís very easy to create a sanitized world to keep ourselves from being crushed, yet without getting our hands dirty, itís very hard to understand the plight of anotherís misfortune nor are we able to lend a helping hand. Exceptional work. Take care and be well.

living in a bubble is easy, the difficult part is passing through its membrane, for that's what allows us to understand ...
Last Bubble (Poetry) - 9/28/2004 5:53:07 PM

The dream of peace can, at times, be elusive. Nice job.
In A Vacuum (Poetry) - 8/15/2004 12:29:11 PM
"In A Vacuum", the poem, a story of a searchful soul, entwined through its lines of a poetic magnificence.
Striking thoughts on this reading from a grandiloquent writing.
I salute You, Sublime Poet!
Long Healthy Life.

Yes Erica...To have peace and inner contentment at your essence is what it is all about....
Never build a case against yourself...Always trust your own intuition in every matter .
