Supreme Sorrow (Poetry) - 8/13/2004 8:17:22 PM
Powerful and very emotional write. You have bared the pain of a mothers grief and that is not an easy thing to do with mere words. I will be back to read more of your work.

Marco, This truly is a very moving piece, but, all your poems seem to touch the heart and soul. You have a wonderful way of expressing yourself.

Very deep touching read Marco!!
Mentality (Poetry) - 7/19/2004 8:38:30 PM
So deep, had to read this a couple of time.
Lesson found here:
People need to just break that death chain. . .too much life to live.
Tomorrow is there if we want it.
blessin's, and keep thriving,

Molti bella, Marco!
A poem of superior images!!!
Mentality (Poetry) - 7/19/2004 3:00:39 PM
Almitra said," You would know the secret of Death. But how shall you find it unless you seek it in the heart of life?
The owl whose night bound eyes are blind unto the day cannot unveil the mystery of light.
If you would indeed behold the spirit of death, open your heart wide unto the body of life....for life and eath are one, even as the river and the sea are one.
Your poetry always fascinates me withit's hidden meanings for today and the future.
Well done Marco...one of your best!!!
Secret Yearnings (Poetry) - 7/6/2004 11:57:40 PM

Secret Yearnings (Poetry) - 6/14/2004 10:55:38 AM
I think herein lies your key :)
In an insane world
who can remain sound ?
He that gets ready
to escape to faraway land
holds in the heart
with a sigh of anguish.
Secret Yearnings (Poetry) - 6/14/2004 8:58:26 AM
WONDERFUL poem, Marco!
Secret Yearnings (Poetry) - 6/14/2004 5:15:34 AM
Tender and touching and with a wisdom that only someone within the depth of this person could possibly understand or write. Marco....I miss you my friend.

Secret Yearnings (Poetry) - 6/13/2004 7:47:19 PM
Thank you, Marco, for this beautiful piece of writing!
You are a deep thinker, and a talented one.
This poem is tutti bene!
Secret Yearnings (Poetry) - 6/13/2004 6:39:07 PM
Always wonderful to read you and your powerful poetry.
"Impetuous, filled with
venom and hate
out of the world,
lonely in life
with a ray of love
that God infuses
in the heart
hope for serenety.
Counting the remaning days
of a grim life
that chains us to this heart."
Secret Yearnings (Poetry) - 6/13/2004 4:27:13 PM
Some powerful emotions here. Yes, in this world of cruelty, escaping would be lovelier for some.

Secret Yearnings (Poetry) - 6/13/2004 4:01:15 PM
I also feel like escaping at times Marco.
Life can be so cruel. But I do trust in Him
and Him alone to get me through. This was most
powerful and touching. I felt every word. floria
Secret Yearnings (Poetry) - 6/13/2004 3:42:53 PM
Marco, I hear the anguish for a world in crisis,
that causes our minds to seek refuge.Brilliant
and beautifully written poety! Thanks for sharing!;-)
Secret Yearnings (Poetry) - 6/13/2004 3:00:53 PM
Marco this goes way to deep...my friend...way deeper than only yearning!!
Thanks for sharing this most outstanding piece!!
The Nest (Poetry) - 6/13/2004 11:23:53 AM
This has a fascinating dream-like quality to it, Marco, and I can relate to it so well... even when an English girl like me should feel total tranquility on a Mediterranean holiday: sun sea and sand, I cannot quite find that elusive complete peace and long for the little nest-like place where I know that there is something waiting to occupy my thoughts completely - whether happy or sad. It is almost like a mental homing instinct! An intuitive tracking device, calling heart and mind "home" - wherever "home" might be! Lovely images and gentle statements in this flowing write that laps like the tide. Thank you. Kate x
The Nest (Poetry) - 6/13/2004 10:25:39 AM

The Nest (Poetry) - 5/1/2004 6:55:42 AM
BRILLIANT work, Marco!
Enchantment (Poetry) - 5/1/2004 2:37:41 AM
I have been enchanted...and I have adored awe-inspired to another, as well. Hmmmm....yes. I cherish truth.
The Nest (Poetry) - 5/1/2004 12:36:09 AM
K Gabran said it best "We can't know love's depth until we lose it>" Your words say what the heart yearns. Distance is always a better place when we reflect in our hearts. I've been a gypsy in this world too.
The Nest (Poetry) - 4/30/2004 10:46:49 PM
Gorgeous poetry Marco.....
Always so wonderful to see your post.
"Dominant in his thoughts
Of that far away nest
Where he wishes to return
Between august walls
Where the desired perfume
Vibrate a sweet note.
It’s an especially note
Over the all notes in the world
Magnificent and vibrant..
A note of love
That inflicts pain to the heart."
The Nest (Poetry) - 4/30/2004 7:00:31 PM
Ah such truth in this beautiful and excellent poem,
The Nest (Poetry) - 4/30/2004 6:49:22 PM
Superb reflections of happy/sad longing
of memories full of pain and joy....
Supreme Sorrow (Poetry) - 4/19/2004 5:07:20 PM
Ah...I cannot speak of this, I understand all to well, This was heart-breaking and so true,
Supreme Sorrow (Poetry) - 4/18/2004 3:14:15 PM
In all the rage of tears, in all the torment a child's death can bring to a mother...in all the emptiness a love for family can grieve...you've captured the depth of despair for the loss only a mother can feel for her offspring. My grandmother always said that a mother isn't supposed to outlive her children. When hostile conditions take our children and when it's done for freedom then the confusion reigns in a mother's heart.
Marco...your sensitivity brings me tears. You told our story well.
Love, peace and harmony,
Supreme Sorrow (Poetry) - 4/18/2004 11:54:01 AM
This strikes right to the depth of the soul, Marco. Well done. Love and peace. Regis
Supreme Sorrow (Poetry) - 4/17/2004 2:07:44 PM
Marco, the language and feel of this write are wonderfully lyrical and I can hear your Italian lilt coming through - the language of love and of pain, too, it would seem! As your biog suggests, you can either choose just to go round with your eyes open - or you can SEE; and you obviously have a great gift of SEEING - not only the purely visible, but the invisible and emotional, too. Thank you for this compassionate and feeling write about something which must be so difficult to express - let alone bear. My heart goes out to all who know of the pain which you have painted so movingly here. "The beloved son - the mother's divine smile" - I am moved by the very thought of these words and sentiments. Thank you. KB
Supreme Sorrow (Poetry) - 4/17/2004 10:02:52 AM
I can feel this pain Marco...been there myself.
Not a easy thing to lose a child...God I know!!
Supreme Sorrow (Poetry) - 4/17/2004 7:33:29 AM
I feel the pain a mother endures with the loss of a child is one of the hardest for anyone to live through this is excellent Marco.....
So wonderful to read you Poet.
Supreme Sorrow (Poetry) - 4/17/2004 2:55:53 AM
Outstanding is this soulful write, for it reaches down and touches the very depth of mine.
Supreme Sorrow (Poetry) - 4/16/2004 6:11:25 PM
Reaching the depths of emotion with this one Marco!
So beautifully said for so sad a topic. Having lost
a son I know this anguish! I can't even write of it!
Supreme Sorrow (Poetry) - 4/16/2004 5:36:08 PM
So powerful- your words have touched me deeply!
I am a mother of two grown children, and I no not of the horrific pain of loosing a child. I can not begin to fathom how painful this would be. My heart bleeds for any parent who has lost a son or a daughter.
Beautiful write, your pen is well gifted, Marco!
P.S. Thank you, for your kind review ~
Supreme Sorrow (Poetry) - 4/16/2004 5:17:39 PM
Oh my gosh Marco how this touched me..
as a mother who has lost a son I can so
relate...and yes you are right..no matter
the age of the child...even if they are adults
they are still thought of as our dear children..
and the pain is unbearable...how I ache for the
parents of these servicemen...today as I saw the
frightened captured serviceman on tv I could just
imagine the pain the mother is going through..
and the ones who don't make it home...how can
anyone feel anything but complete sorrow for them..
remarkable writing from you my friend...heartfelt
Supreme Sorrow (Poetry) - 4/16/2004 5:15:01 PM
How achingly beautiful, Marco!
I felt it to the core, having lost a son of my own.
You are a great talent at expressing yourself through poetry.
the world and love (Poetry) - 4/12/2004 11:13:28 AM
The delicate fragrance
Of an ideal love,
The golden threshold,
Where the happy heart
In divine marriage
Gently lay down,
But a rough
That by irony of dialect
Love only sells
Like getto’s goods!
Is the earthly life
Without the divine wing
...I am stunned....
I'm saving this...TY!!!
Ecce Homo (Poetry) - 4/12/2004 11:10:32 AM

the world and love (Poetry) - 4/12/2004 8:04:15 AM
Man's middle name is Greed in most cases. Unfortunately life's graveled road gives us scars and pains from the learning experience. For those who find lust breeds greed then the lesson is there for the taking. For those who learn the values of love and the treasures of true passions, then ...they lasso the Universe.
I adore the words you choose so msticulously and for your art of translation... I bow.
Love and peace,
Ecce Homo (Poetry) - 4/12/2004 7:59:34 AM
Stunning and emotional to read...this must have brought tears to write. This is a most beautiful poem and lesson in the barer of the cross. I thank you and will add...I've missed you here for a long time and am grateful you've returned.
Love and peace!

This is glorious writing.
Ecce Homo (Poetry) - 4/10/2004 6:41:18 PM
Wonderful poetry Marco! Very moving! Have a Happy Easter!
Ecce Homo (Poetry) - 4/10/2004 3:05:15 PM
Ecce Homo = behold the man. Poem is excellent. But I had to raise my vocabularly level to read it. This breaks the flow and the poem has great flow past that point. Great tribute to Ecce Homo. He has risen. Happy Easter. Bill Murray
P.S.!Jesus Christo hay que vivir en nuestros corazones y almas, si?
See it makes little difference if the Spanish is understood on the end of my comment. It would have at the beginning.
Ecce Homo (Poetry) - 4/10/2004 2:28:56 PM
Marco, you have surpassed yourself!
Tutti bene, amico!!!
Ecce Homo (Poetry) - 4/10/2004 12:18:48 PM
Not sure I know what Ecce Homo meand Marco...
I am thinking perhaps it means "the sign of man"
this is powerful and well written...
really sorrowful ...as the crucifixion was...
and powerful ending here that I love...
well done..Blessed Easter to you Marco..floria

Marco...you make me sad that I never learned my native
tongue of Italian. Your first version, in the language,
must be of a beauty that transcends much of what I have
read in modern day poetry.
Even this translation, my friend, is magnifico! Molti grazie!
"The pain of love's ending is the greatest torment of the earth.!
What a powerhouse of a statement, in a powerful piece of poetry.
I am so glad I found your web pages. Keep writing, Marco. You
are a genius mind.

Il mondo e l'amore (Poetry) - 3/7/2004 4:59:38 PM
Marco, I have to agree with Deborah.
My Italian is not good enough to translate this...and
I was so anxious to read it when I saw your name!
Il mondo e l'amore (Poetry) - 3/7/2004 7:53:25 AM
So good to see you Marco. Though I can only make out some of it, I can see your meaning and the beauty of your thoughts! Thank you for sharing, and I agree!;-)
Il mondo e l'amore (Poetry) - 3/7/2004 7:43:55 AM
too bad my father's deceased or i'd ask him to translate ...
Il mondo e l'amore (Poetry) - 3/7/2004 6:46:30 AM
My head is spinning......I am lost in you beautiful words....but have no clue what you said!!
Let me try!!
The World and the Love Who puo' to say that the life is life, if before known does not have de' love the drunkness? Who puo to say that the amor it is madness if of it it never knew the sweet caress? E' the dolor of an ended love. e' the piu' large I torment of Core who gives accelsa the region of the dream on the earth returns pulled down. E' a tremendous crash like who, from a palace golden on the stable is looked at thrown. And in the stable of the gross world all e' sozzo e', a odor nauseous of animal excrement in the diffused air e'. Or piu' the olezzo gentle of the ideal love that the gold one I use where happy Core in divine connubbio sweetly does not carefully lay down, perfumes. But rozza a trivial slut whom for irony of dialetto the love sol she sees like goods from ghetto! That shame e' the life terrena without the divine wing of the amor that there invola in chimero reign of infinite dolcezza. And they say a world to it in which the life is enjoyed! Where the alma like beast pulled down in spasmodic gesta tor4ce drowned between the defect and the mota. E' a world of crazy that the amor it despises and it mocks. Incoscienza e' ignorance son the guide of the gross man, of who solo pasce dl to appeal to material
Antique Memories (Poetry) - 1/28/2004 8:13:56 AM
Yes, Marco...memories that bring delight can be
as tenaceous as a spider's web.
Enchantment (Poetry) - 1/14/2004 9:57:47 AM
Very meaningful verses, Marco.
They remind me of the story of "The Portrait of Dorian Gray."
I, too, am a painter, and am constantly amazed at how one craft
(writing) benefits the other (painting), and vice versa.
We tend to see improvements in both areas simulataneously, because
we are always intrigued by detail...isn't that so?
Evening (Poetry) - 1/13/2004 5:55:55 PM
Lovely insight here, Marco...

Flower of Thorns (Poetry) - 10/30/2003 4:13:46 PM
Oh yes, nothing with beauty comes without price. The proverbial thorn in the side!
Wonderful write, enticing!
The Spider (Poetry) - 10/30/2003 4:08:33 PM
I remove spiders from the house, non poisonus varieties, to a tree somwhere, we have huntsman's the size of a small saucer here in OZ, creepy but harmless. BUT, the funnelweb, if found, gets the boot! On top of it, quick smart. They kill many children here every year. No mercy! Tis good to catch them for antivenom if you can though. Redbacks, sssssquish, potentially deadly.
Now you know about Australian spiders, lol, Ok, your write, hmmmmm
yes, I am reminded of Robert the Bruce whilst reading it, when he was hiding in the cave from his enemies. He learned much from watching the spider spinning its web.
I learned much from your write. teehee.
Excellent work. Such intense focus.
TY for reading my work too. :)
The Spider (Poetry) - 10/22/2003 8:36:05 AM

The Spider (Poetry) - 9/30/2003 7:37:58 PM
What a fascinating poem.
The Spider (Poetry) - 9/30/2003 7:19:35 PM
missed you this is excellent.
with thoughtful attentive
the assiduous work
an overwhelming awe
of the insidious power
of nature's mystery.
Applied is by the spider
the implacable law
that entrusts life
to other people's annihilation
and the intelligent insect
with precise labor
is forced to observe. "
The Spider (Poetry) - 9/30/2003 6:48:23 PM
Spiders are fascinating. Great tribute, well composed and formed.

The Spider (Poetry) - 9/30/2003 6:17:47 PM
Excellent craft of imagery I love watching them make their webs. Artistic to say the least.
The Spider (Poetry) - 9/30/2003 5:46:02 PM
Marco a wonderful piece of work. beautifully crafted !you should look at my "Web of Wonder";-)

Well sculpted piece..
Flower of Thorns (Poetry) - 9/25/2003 12:30:41 AM
again, Marco, the Pain/the Beauty and how you capture one with the other, yes, and again the sybolism, ahhh, yes! Such a beautiful flower, the rose, and always...its thorns...
beautifully done, so good to read you once again...
Healing Water (Poetry) - 9/25/2003 12:27:47 AM
Marco, yes, beautiful imagery and a wonderful exploration of the dual nature of water...and, oh, the Healing...symbolism and verse quite provocative of thought, beauty and danger and much here, Marco, much...
Flower of Thorns (Poetry) - 9/23/2003 12:33:16 PM
A painful experience of love lost, the thorns remain to remind us and maybe to help us to treasure, protect and value true love when we find it. The Tea-bag lady! Jackie <> <
Flower of Thorns (Poetry) - 9/12/2003 1:40:40 PM
Beautifully written and deeply moving.
Flower of Thorns (Poetry) - 9/9/2003 2:21:34 AM
..it's strange how unrequited love gives us pleasure..I've often wondered why so many poems have been written because of the pain etc. what is it in our humaness that requires pain to know love..I ask you..is that love or is it just desire gone haywire..and so we cry..why?..Why indeed...
Beautiful write..you have an enormous capacity for love....
Flower of Thorns (Poetry) - 9/8/2003 6:09:28 PM
Oh this was so beautifully written, so very painful, excellent,

Flower of Thorns (Poetry) - 8/28/2003 6:15:49 AM
Sometimes even a thorn in the heart
from the one we love is better than having no trace of them.
Your poem tugged at my heart and reminded me of long ago.My thorn is still in tact, can't remove it,part of me now.Your poem touched me,deeply.Beautiful words.

Lovely and deeply emotive.

Marco, such anguish I feel the pain from the thorn, a superb write!
Flower of Thorns (Poetry) - 8/27/2003 10:39:19 PM
Bittersweet...but beautiful Marco!!
Flower of Thorns (Poetry) - 8/27/2003 9:47:03 PM
A truly beautiful and bittersweet write. Loved the idea of personal pain as compared to thorns...is an idea that can be utilized in many ways and forms!
Flower of Thorns (Poetry) - 8/27/2003 8:08:52 PM
This is beautiful, and bittersweet
"You left the thorn
to bleed inside my heart
so vulnerable to ridicule
was I the foolish chaser"
Flower of Thorns (Poetry) - 8/27/2003 7:42:39 PM
Thorns penetrate but can be taken out. Can i help with this pain? I'm so sorry here with you reading this.
Flower of Thorns (Poetry) - 8/27/2003 7:41:04 PM
Love this. Marco! I like especially that last stanza.

"A roaring of
a tinkling of hail
A candid veil
descends on earth
like a lymph, fertil
mother to all spicies
full of happiness,
generous and persuasive
thirsty of life's horrors."

So very well written Marco!!
I just love this one!!
Human Heart (Poetry) - 8/24/2003 11:29:09 AM
Marco, yes, the heart is so mysterious, in many ways...I love how you delve within to bring us the honesty of emotion that you do, si! oh, would love to see a poem of yours in Italian w/a Translation...
this, the heart, oh yes...sometimes when 'awakened' and fed on kindness and love, it does make a difference, at others, well.. you've spoekn it here, so deeply honest...thank you.
Desperation (Poetry) - 8/24/2003 11:23:32 AM
Painful, eloquent, yet very, very Painful...hope, hope is all so needed, especially when the stagnation hits one and the depth of...what You are so roght, Marco, what was Not meant to be in life...
one can feel the pain through these words...
hope must be w/in this Poet, as he wrote for us...yes?
Desperation (Poetry) - 8/24/2003 7:30:25 AM
Looks deep inside the lonliness one feels... the loss of hope. Exceptional!
Desperation (Poetry) - 8/22/2003 8:24:08 AM
A nice poem.
Greetings from Atlanta.
Desperation (Poetry) - 8/20/2003 11:46:15 PM
I can relate to this one Marco!!
Very well writen piece!!
Antique Memories (Poetry) - 8/20/2003 9:12:57 PM
Wonderfully expressive language that conjures up moodily nostalgic images...! Excellent write!
Desperation (Poetry) - 8/20/2003 9:11:18 PM
Marco, this poetry has truth and strength, your verses have sharp and jagged edges! This is a write reflective of a dark mood, but it is also a mirror in which we can see the perspective of the image looking back. Really well-written, nice work!
Desperation (Poetry) - 8/20/2003 9:05:21 PM
Very good description of a parralel dungeon I sometimes visit, but I would hate to stay there forever. Remember, life thrives on cycles, there is an opposite to now that will come in the future. The tough part is riding it out until it does. :) Here's a smile for you, Marco... Btw, love the last line, delivers the punch.
Desperation (Poetry) - 8/20/2003 7:00:52 PM
Marco my dear, negativity is the door to failure. A dark mood is good only if it leads to enlightenment;-)Excellent write!
Desperation (Poetry) - 8/20/2003 5:24:14 PM
"The absence of hope is the real tragedy", you may be right......but someone once told me we should NEVER GIVE UP on HOPE or LIFE for that matter ........ Donna

My Enemy (Poetry) - 8/14/2003 10:27:46 AM
Indeed, sometimes our thoughts are our worst enemies... but yet, sometimes they are also our best friends. An excellent write.
My Enemy (Poetry) - 8/13/2003 6:26:09 PM
Very good poem... so true.
My Enemy (Poetry) - 8/12/2003 12:00:55 PM
Now that is a thought to think about..
My Enemy (Poetry) - 8/12/2003 11:32:12 AM
An excellent, thought provoking piece.
My Enemy (Poetry) - 8/12/2003 9:43:54 AM
Marco this is excellent and
My Enemy (Poetry) - 8/12/2003 5:55:07 AM
Most of the time my thoughts of this kind are of guilt , on my part, of the situation. My other thoughts ususally turn the sour into the sweet. I always try to turn the negatives in my life around.
This is an excellent breakfast poem. It will give me more to expound on during my day.
Love and miss you Marco.
My Enemy (Poetry) - 8/12/2003 4:24:47 AM
Excellant write Marco, such thought provoking depth to chew on!
My Enemy (Poetry) - 8/12/2003 2:56:08 AM
That little devil within...thats our Biggest enemy!!
Very well written Marco!!
My Enemy (Poetry) - 8/11/2003 9:56:40 PM
Marco, after all is said and done, it is the enemy from within who gives us big time trouble. Do you know him very well? Bill Murray
My Enemy (Poetry) - 8/11/2003 7:26:05 PM
Sometimes we are the victims of our own negative thinking. Fine writing Marco!

You always stir deep thought, and passions Marco, wonderful poetry!
Human Heart (Poetry) - 8/9/2003 5:34:15 PM
Marco this was a EXCELLANT free verse ride, very much enjoyed!
Human Heart (Poetry) - 8/9/2003 4:05:31 PM
The human heart is a part of the network of consciousness and unsonsciousness. It allows the mystery of love to either vegetate or to bloom. It keeps us agog at the mastermind behind our birth and the reasons we have to love. I allow my senses to reign when others close theirs off in fear. This is not healthy and stunts the growth of love and passion. I love the maze of a heart. It is the most fascinating universe in my world. The mind is a part but is more constructively focused when the heart heals with dreams sometimes. I love your heart and mind marco. It is beautifully awondering.
Human Heart (Poetry) - 8/9/2003 4:45:21 AM
Marco, I enjoyed this, thank you! It is true that like porcelain we are moulded by the outside forces and influences in our lives, but what shape remains is also dependent on what we are made of inside and how we responded to those influences...
Human Heart (Poetry) - 8/9/2003 12:35:18 AM
Marcho this free flowing verse takes you on quite a journey to your mental underworld. Hope it gave you the release you sought ... it did me. Bill

What a OUTSTANDING write, so magical and enchanting just as The Great Mission should be!!!!
Enchantment (Poetry) - 8/8/2003 5:47:03 AM
A lot of truth and wisdom in this write.
The Great Mission (Poetry) - 8/8/2003 5:45:11 AM
Wonderful spiritual write!
Just a matter of days (Poetry) - 8/7/2003 10:32:51 PM
I've learned it is the NOW that is truly important... yesterday and tomorrow do not exist at all. This poem speaks of Now to me, yet many will read it as a 'moment' in a string of Now-times.... when it is always "Now"...
The Great Mission (Poetry) - 8/7/2003 10:29:45 PM
You are writing of the Mysteries... that must come forth in these times of Now... that we may all have Awakened Hearts and Minds.. It takes courage only in the beginning. It gets easier each day for me, as well.
The Great Mission (Poetry) - 8/7/2003 6:20:27 PM
Expressively beautiful write, Marco.
The Great Mission (Poetry) - 8/7/2003 6:00:02 PM
"Transform a venal heart'...this is a quest for your angel Marco. This is abso,utely beautiful. When I take it in it is with barely a whisper ss this poem should always be read in a whisper.
The Great Mission (Poetry) - 8/7/2003 5:03:41 PM
Excellent write, beautifully expressed!

The good, the bad and the ugly...
If everything was black and white or
even invisible there would still be something that just didn't fit...However some are just deceivers...
Enchantment (Poetry) - 7/31/2003 9:58:41 AM
Marco,I love this one! Glad you wrote it. More, please :)
Enchantment (Poetry) - 7/23/2003 5:24:47 PM
Marco, what true beauty in this, so very much how i'm feeling at this point. I think my favorite lines are these:
We create her
we adore her
until the day when
the veil falls,
we discover the ugliness
that she always had
with fabricated fantasy.
Fatal is the day
the veil is removed,
So very very true.
Un bacio Marco

I really loved this one a lot! Thanks for posting it...
Enchantment (Poetry) - 7/15/2003 7:25:01 PM
Loving another unconditionally, which is the only way to love, allows the love-er to know and accept the loved one altogether, the bad, the ugly, the beautiful, the lovely. The only problem is that it take far too long for many of us to realize this. Fortunate are those who 'get it' early in life.
My poem, Potential, which you reviewed so accurately, speaks of this very essence of love. My mom always refused unconditional love.... she said it gave the loved one too much license to take 'advantage'... it was a lifelong argument we had.
This is a beautiful piece, Marco... looking forward to reading more of your work.
Enchantment (Poetry) - 7/11/2003 7:15:10 AM
Well done. It is life..Love and the pursuit of our hearts that lead us into these words feelings. michael

I enjoyed reading "The sure path" Marco!!
Enchantment (Poetry) - 6/29/2003 2:50:46 PM
welcome to authorsden--we are glad you're here
o, this is beautiful...i loved the entire piece, but the words
"...the most visible defects
changes into loveliness..."
how i wish more men felt that way...it seems men want perfection and women will never attain it...how sad not to accept women for what they are
powerful, thought provoking write--well done
(((HUGS))) and love,
Enchantment (Poetry) - 6/25/2003 11:09:08 AM
I'm so glad you commented on my poem today, I would have missed the opportunity to read this profound and lovely work.
Enchantment (Poetry) - 6/19/2003 6:45:25 PM
Marco, this is absolutely outstanding!!! Such depth, and meaning and truth! Thank you for sharing it...
Enchantment (Poetry) - 6/12/2003 7:03:18 AM
Marco what a beautiful write!
Enchantment (Poetry) - 5/30/2003 1:30:21 AM
Fatal is the day that our invisioned dreams are dashed and tear...to leave a bleeding heart.
Enchantment (Poetry) - 5/29/2003 12:43:45 PM
My heart stops as I read this, Marco. We all do this thing called "pedestal putting", men and women. When the veil is removed, it is a very sad, sad day, isn't it. The veil, symbolic (seeing underneath) or not (a wedding veil??). We've all lifted that veil. Well done, Marco.
Just a matter of days (Poetry) - 5/12/2003 2:37:37 PM
Thought provoking and epic piece about the human condition. We are but here for awhile before we pass on ... that is nature's way. Still we can leave a mark and legacy -- as you do here. My favorite verses are:
Why so many actions
so many tribulations?
So foolish appears
who with dull torment
only knows to sadden
the short moments.
We all know
we all see
that the mortal life
is irrevocably mortal,
and yet we believe to be eternal
with our impetuous actions
Not a noble sign
not a gentle deed;
enjoyment to the end
of that fatal day
he who thinks
with natural fear
to only be mortal...

Enchantment (Poetry) - 5/2/2003 3:21:09 PM
Enchanting! The process of love is shrouded in mystery and you have "removed the veil" beautifully.
Enchantment (Poetry) - 4/30/2003 6:39:11 PM
It's good to read you again Marco..Such a well crafted poem. What lies beneath...I think that is the greater treasure.....again great....ty, Dani
Enchantment (Poetry) - 4/30/2003 4:55:14 PM
Very well constructed verse...powerful message, just an awesome piece!
Enchantment (Poetry) - 4/30/2003 2:54:57 PM
and endless loop.
and beautifully phrased.
Enchantment (Poetry) - 4/30/2003 12:35:44 PM
Ditto on what Eileen said!!
Enchantment (Poetry) - 4/30/2003 9:38:07 AM
This is a lovely and sad verse. Lovely for the rtist who can develope this image and sad for the man who falls fatal to the sculpture. Oft times what we imagine is superficial as we live life as we give it. I hope your lovely lady is not a mere image and that you attempt to go beneath the surface of the matRix to get to the Opal.
Love and peace,
Enchantment (Poetry) - 4/29/2003 10:12:36 PM
Hi Marco - I wonder - is this someone who was once wonderful to you? Fabulous lyrics.
Enchantment (Poetry) - 4/29/2003 9:53:36 PM
it always pays to know the contours of your enchanted territroy... well done!
Enchantment (Poetry) - 4/29/2003 6:54:25 PM
Ditto on what Eileen said. Not that we dont want to be adored, but...
Enchantment (Poetry) - 4/29/2003 5:55:46 PM
Such meaning in your verses. We do create and then become disappointed when we realize there are flaws we chose to cover over. It is good to see a post from you Tonight
