Conversation With The Past  (Short Story) - 11/29/2004 1:42:33 PM
Most captivating, Rain; and the lesson taught is obvious. I suppose it could be considered science fiction but it feels deeper than that. Nice work. Love to you. Regis

Wow this is jammed packed full of emotions and interesting possibilities of outcomes. Great write. I can see why you were asked to read it.

A Fool Such As I (Poetry) - 5/13/2012 6:07:13 AM
This made my eyes tear up! I'm so there right now.

A Fool Such As I (Poetry) - 11/7/2010 11:06:20 AM
The brick walls always crumble, at the thought of love. Nice work Best wishes

A Fool Such As I (Poetry) - 10/12/2010 9:13:40 AM
feel the pain,anger,confusion brought out in these lines...some of I think are just doomed to this fate..hopefully temporary,and not a lasting condition. Nicely done.

A Fool Such As I (Poetry) - 10/11/2010 3:54:43 AM
Few of us get through this world unscathed by love's keen edged blade but if we discount the pain of the bad will we ever taste the sweetness of a good one. fee

A Fool Such As I (Poetry) - 10/10/2010 2:41:05 PM
(Andy faints) Blimey, how magical it is to see/hear/feel you writing once more. Hate to say, not Crystal on her top form, but still a great poem, it is more song like than poetry. no-matter just fab to see your crazy name writing once more. Tops, doubt if it's autobio, no bloke is that daft.

A Fool Such As I (Poetry) - 10/10/2010 1:24:00 PM
Christine... I actually wrote this after listening to 30 Seconds To Mars's "Was It Just A Dream" and it goes perfectly with the melody. I kind of did write it as a song and when I read it, I hear it that way. Wish I could sing. I'd record it.

A Fool Such As I (Poetry) - 10/10/2010 10:38:52 AM
The theme that you express via your verses here is sadly a timeless and universal one in this world/life, Rain. This meaningful metaphorical offering from you reaches deeply into my soul and your words echo there because I am very familiar with what they express. Thank you. Love, peace, and hugs to you, Regis (Reegie, to you) PS: Oh, and I have been a fool too.

A Fool Such As I (Poetry) - 10/10/2010 10:01:30 AM
"Like a moth to a flame" as madonna sang. This is a beautiful poem. But don't beat yourself up for falling again. Sometimes we need to learn a lesson more than once, in order to fully get it. I did the same thing. . .more than twice And am happy to be now stepping around the thin ice. You will too.

A Fool Such As I (Poetry) - 10/10/2010 9:22:03 AM
..this could be a song...but 'No Fool', how is one to really know, I have learned this a few time..great write (love your bio photo) Christine

A Fool Such As I (Poetry) - 10/10/2010 7:12:11 AM
There are guys and gals out there that are along only for the ride and when its over, goodbye. Heart wrenching poem. George

Don't (Poetry) - 9/23/2008 4:18:39 PM
Hi Crystall you are love and Love is your name. People that love must and will love again. God is love Crystal and You are an exclusive expression of His love! You were misused in love but you triumph because of love, so you see you are the victor! That person wasn't worthy of your love and that is why the connedtion wasn't made. Remember God always protects our hearts even when we don't know what we are doing. I am guilty but love has found me again and I it. Thank you God and I am loving it. Your poem is magnificent. Peace!!!

Crystal, You expressed yourself well in this poem. I really liked this.

My Mother Taught Me Color (Poetry) - 9/24/2007 7:17:44 AM
Sad, the damage done by "well meaning" parents. I know of the prejudice of what you speak: some of my family were highly against marrying into another race. My oldest sister went through hell: to me, it didn't matter, as long as he treated her right. He didn't: it wasn't because of his race, he was a jerk!! I know white jerks, black jerks, Asian jerks, Middle-Eastern jerks, Hispanic jerks: no race is immune. A powerful, heartbreaking message you've penned today. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla. My best friend was black; I can remember my Gramma telling me not to "play with that N----- girl." My doctor who did my back surgery was black: he was the Air Force's top neurosurgeon at that time. So what if he was black? It's the knowledge in the head and the skill of the hands that matters most....get me started LOL Good on you!!

Beautiful Biracial Babies (Poetry) - 9/24/2007 7:13:38 AM
Beautiful, Crystal-Rain! Absolutely precious. Babies are miracles: does it matter if they're mixed? I have nieces and great nieces who are mixed. They're great kids. :) (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Don't (Poetry) - 9/24/2007 7:12:08 AM
Crytal-Rain, Love your name, first of all. Pretty! Poignancy in your heartfelt lines: excellent. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Don't (Poetry) - 1/15/2007 5:59:12 AM
Bittersweet and heartfelt.

Don't (Poetry) - 12/9/2006 10:23:51 PM

Don't (Poetry) - 3/4/2005 8:16:21 AM
its obvious you pulled this one straight from your heart strings......and thats the way a poem can really touch the reader bravo pax A

Fly On Your Wall (Poetry) - 3/4/2005 7:58:07 AM
This is so imaginative. I really like the way you brought the beginning around to the end.

Don't (Poetry) - 3/4/2005 7:55:48 AM
Powerful poem.

Don't (Poetry) - 8/27/2004 5:19:16 PM
lost love is indeed difficult to endure ... the emotional guise of this poem is very powerful ...

Don't (Poetry) - 8/27/2004 5:26:09 AM
Very sad write, however, we can probably all attest to be in this place at one time or another.

Don't (Poetry) - 8/26/2004 4:36:57 PM
Tragic and sad write, about how rejection can prevent someone totally loving. Don't let the lock go rusty..

Don't (Poetry) - 8/24/2004 6:04:12 PM
Crystal - Deep sentiments exquisitely expressed in this lovely poem - beautiful! Robert

Don't (Poetry) - 8/24/2004 6:36:11 AM
Ah so much pain in this poignant poem, excellently expressed, Reindeer

Don't (Poetry) - 8/23/2004 9:43:21 PM
Emotional truth expressed with beauty and courage - love is elusive, and only few occasions may elevate us to glimpes of sublime love. The key to one's heart can be found only after consciousness tells it has been lost. Thanks, Crystal. Franz

Don't (Poetry) - 8/23/2004 9:15:11 PM
There is so much painful truth in your powerful verses here, Rain. The imagery complements the emotions and the meaning intended. Thank you for sharing this precious part of your soul. Love and peace always. Regis

Don't (Poetry) - 8/23/2004 8:43:41 PM
An excellent write Crystal. This made me say ouch ouch ouch. That lost part of you that knows how to love can always find its way back, when the time is right. Joy and starlight HH

Fly On Your Wall (Poetry) - 7/17/2004 9:47:12 PM

Warm memories can touch us, even with agony, even when the pain of separation might not be so long.

This Day (Poetry) - 1/30/2004 2:59:02 PM
Sad and beautifully written.

This Day (Poetry) - 1/30/2004 2:52:13 PM
A lovely poem about lost love which isn't really lost at all, just misplaced.

Time To End The Story (Poetry) - 1/28/2004 7:06:07 AM
So sad and deeply honest emotions. Grips the heart with raw pain.

Time To End The Story (Poetry) - 1/26/2004 9:39:33 PM
This is painfully harsh in its realism but it expresses an angst and so much truth for many relationships. Thank you for this wonderful offering, Rain. Much love and peace to you. Regis

Time To End The Story (Poetry) - 1/26/2004 9:22:52 PM
this is a painful one.

Time To End The Story (Poetry) - 1/26/2004 7:38:50 PM
Soon as I saw your name thouht, hey ho great write here, surely is..

Time To End The Story (Poetry) - 1/26/2004 10:05:21 AM
This is a brutal truth of life. I went through this and it hurted like hell until I accepted the fact that me and her was over. Time does have a way of lessening the pain when we let go of what we can't have. Best wishes

Time To End The Story (Poetry) - 1/26/2004 9:23:05 AM
wow! powerful, heartfelt poem; thanks for sharing, crystal-rain! (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in tx., karen lynn. :)

Time To End The Story (Poetry) - 1/26/2004 8:53:48 AM
It is sad but somethings this is the way it ends but cutting loose before any real damage is done is extremely wise. Great write.

Time To End The Story (Poetry) - 1/26/2004 7:00:35 AM

This is so well expressed!

Time To End The Story (Poetry) - 1/25/2004 11:39:10 PM
oh I know this story..the hard part is the amputation,even when the feelings are dead,it still hurts..seems like many have been here

Time To End The Story (Poetry) - 1/25/2004 8:10:03 PM
WOW! Harsh truth hits home. I definitely relate strongly to this feeling! -- Jeff

Dancer On A Pole (Poetry) - 1/19/2004 5:13:13 AM
Well done, and the ending is such a wonderful twist.

Dancer On A Pole (Poetry) - 1/19/2004 1:11:50 AM
Great ending.....Though I don't envy them.....rather pity them. Looks fade.....and that trash stamp doesn't looks so good on an ageing body. Excellent write! ty, Dani

Dancer On A Pole (Poetry) - 1/18/2004 7:23:06 AM
What a wonderful write. You cause the reader to view the pole-dancer in a completely different light

Dancer On A Pole (Poetry) - 1/17/2004 10:12:17 PM
BRILLIANT work, Crystal!

Dancer On A Pole (Poetry) - 1/17/2004 8:22:00 PM
Powerful write Crystal! I loved the ending.... *Linda*

Dancer On A Pole (Poetry) - 1/16/2004 11:39:12 PM
Ah Rain! You did it again! You had me going from the start in this one and... ...wham! Surprise. Very powerful in meaning and emotion. I love it! Love and peace to you. Regis

Dancer On A Pole (Poetry) - 1/16/2004 9:04:28 AM
Profound ending!

Dancer On A Pole (Poetry) - 1/16/2004 8:09:38 AM
I believe there is a part of many that although they'de never admit it, would love to be able to do what those ladies do, maybe not for another woman's man, but for their own. I wasn't in the least shocked at your ending, but I was agreeable. Great write Crystal. Lisa

Dancer On A Pole (Poetry) - 1/16/2004 12:04:23 AM
Excellent n luck....BHUWAN

Dancer On A Pole (Poetry) - 1/15/2004 11:16:33 PM
One of my friends was a pole dancer, and you couldn't meet a nicer lady, but the ending here had me cracking up, I concur with Larry. Great stuff..

Dancer On A Pole (Poetry) - 1/15/2004 10:55:43 PM
"I envy you," quite an ending, with compassion too. From what I've read, many of those those dancers are single moms abandoned by their spouses, trying to make ends meet for their kids.

The Kiss (Poetry) - 1/12/2004 12:31:42 PM
This goes right to the core of my heart, Rain. Emotively expressed and your intended meaning comes through clearly. Love and peace to you, Regis.

A bitter pill. but a lovely poem..

Scene From A Wedding (Poetry) - 1/7/2004 12:35:05 PM
Crystal, very fitting ending. You seemed to have shown the most emotion. Your imagery was very beautiful and endearing.

Reencounter (with Regis Auffray)  (Poetry) - 1/7/2004 5:10:00 AM
Regis and Crystal, this is WONDERFUL! I *HATED* the ending! You have to do a follow-up ... Now, she's in the parking lot, fumbling for her keys... she hears the cafe door swing open, turns to look and... his eyes are LOCKED on hers! "Marie? Is that YOU?! My God, you look so beautiful! How long has it been? I'm sorry, I just CAN'T let time and circumstance steal you from me again! Maybe you don't feel the same way, but... I *had* to let you know that, so many times, I longed to approach you, but I feared you were out of my league." Tears fill their eyes as they embrace; the world disappears as they kiss. Jeff

You Didn't Know Me (Poetry) - 1/7/2004 5:01:57 AM
Oh, MY!!! Crystal... this is *PERFECTION*! Ohhhh.... I *know* this feeling, oh so well! You have touched my heart deeply with this! I can't find adequate words to praise you enough for this. -- Jeff

Reencounter (with Regis Auffray)  (Poetry) - 1/5/2004 2:38:17 PM

You Didn't Know Me (Poetry) - 1/4/2004 8:47:49 PM
hauntingly beautiful..and do you wish you had said,rather than waiting to be noticed? we need to communicate not expect or judge.This is a very moving write,it is not good to cry at 4:45am :)) absolutely gorgeous piece Crystal

You Didn't Know Me (Poetry) - 1/4/2004 8:36:45 PM
This is haunting to me. Perfectly written! A gem!

You Didn't Know Me (Poetry) - 1/4/2004 8:18:15 PM
So sad I'm guilty of feeling unworthy, only to find out, to late how others knew how she also felt,I was haunted by that for some time,this sums up that feeling perfectly, I swore the next time not to be of faint heart, and not be scared to fail,or painful rejection.

You Didn't Know Me (Poetry) - 1/4/2004 8:06:38 PM
Awww, Crystal-Rain! You know you idolized and I am still doing it. The person in question could not have been "inwardly perfect" if they did not at least acknowledge you. But I know well that of which you write and it touches me to my soul's depth. Thank you for sharing this offering, Rain. Love and peace, Regis.

You Didn't Know Me (Poetry) - 1/4/2004 6:45:29 PM

New Year  (Poetry) - 12/31/2003 10:37:41 PM
must be a very delightful dance ... lovely poem ...

New Year  (Poetry) - 12/31/2003 9:51:05 PM
2004 is a remarkable year, Crystal: so, dry your tears, step up to the mark, knowing that all is as it should be. Yesterday is gone, never to be lived again, worthy only of learning from but not dwelling in; tomorrow has yet to come, thus not worth the time to consider; today is here and now, the only day worth your time and effort. So, put your best foot forward with a big smile on your face: all this has been only a test. Make sure you pass it with flying colors. Live today and the morrow will take care of itself. By the way, the poem is very well written. ~~Bonnie Q

My Mother Taught Me Color (Poetry) - 12/27/2003 9:53:58 PM
I come from an extreemley multicultrual background, and so many of my classmates were as black as pitch. A hoot and a half in class too. My mother taught me......not to be racist, haha, then when my children ( first three had genetic problems ) what a hue and a cry. We dont speak now, wot is there to say. Keep on teaching the rainbow, all colours have their place, and all shapes, sizes, creeds, even the so called mentally challenged or physically challenged, tis all the same to God. Love Ch'erie

Hi, Up until I read Andy's cooing love letter to Michelle five minutes ago, i did not know you were in the Den. But I do now! I invite you to read my Bio and view my work, as I am doing with yours right now, and about that freakin comment, :):) dont worry, it will happen, when you least suspect it. You look lovely to me, as do your little ones. I am from NZ originally, and as for Biracial, hehe, there is hardly a Kiwi family that hasnt been mixed with some darker blood. I am thankful for it, saved my hide the other day LOL, as I tan easier than some of my more lily white countrymen. Love to you and yours and great to meet you Ch'erie ( They are Beautiful )

I Am From.... ( Michael Curry challenge)  (Poetry) - 12/18/2003 4:59:51 AM
Excuse ME!! This is POWERFUL! This is what I [would] have said, if I could have said it the way you did. I've been TRYING!!! I may be a month or more late to the challenge, but THIS challenge should NEVER die!! I [will] tell you 'who I am'... but the time must be right; and the words as well. I'll say that you have a LOT of parallels with me. Needless to say, this touched me so deeply, my heart skipped. -- Jeff

Can You Feel Me? (Poetry) - 12/18/2003 4:51:39 AM
Well, now, THIS is AWESOME! Yes, the [heat] does singe me; quite often. Yes, I [do] know of that person I could never get out of my mind! I shall plead the 5th Amendment, for safety's sake. Don't you EVER stop writing like this, young lady! Cheers from Tennessee! Jeff

This is delightful, even in its motherly obtuseness, Rain! Special because you retaught yourself color, and are passing that view on. :)

My Mother Taught Me Color (Poetry) - 12/12/2003 8:23:14 PM
My Mother taught me too.....but the right way, Thank God. I grew up in an area with a high Aboriginal population… My mother was a nurse at the local hospital and on weekends used to bring home the Aboriginal babies to share my cot…as they were flown up from the missions when ill and had no family in town.(Some of her friends were horrified *Racist*) Mum didn't care, she said, a baby is a baby....why try to label them a colour..and not just see them as the children they are. I’ve never questioned colour…I still don’t We are all human beings…even if we’re purple. A needful write…Good for you to change how you were taught....and teach your Children a better way. An excellent poem!! Ty, Dani

God Gave Me Rain (Poetry) - 12/12/2003 8:13:21 PM
A beautiful, heartfelt write...And a gorgeous little girl. My best to you both, ty, Dani

Crystal, this is a very trying and beautiful story. My youngest daughter miscarried for her first child and she was devistated, to say the least. She is now in he 7th month and expecting in February with a little girl. I pray for her and the baby each day and I know He hears me. Your baby is a beautiful little girl. Best of Luck.

Can You Feel Me? (Poetry) - 12/10/2003 12:14:03 AM
oh yes Crystal..definately know this feeling!! well captured

Can You Feel Me? (Poetry) - 12/9/2003 9:17:05 PM
Memory has a way of softening sharp edges, blotting out darkness; yet, I identify. Fortunate for me, the love of my life always keeps track of me: though we never will be together. Calls from time to time over the last 31 years and emails more frequently. To this day, he never ceases to surprise me with his gentle spirit. For the last 10 months I've been helping a young lady in California. I recently sent out a plea for monetary help for her to all my friends and family. He was the only one to respond with a check. Well written, Crystal. I'm certain it stirred a lot of memories for all of us. And, isn't that what good poetry is all about? Indeed. ~~Bonnie Q

Can You Feel Me? (Poetry) - 12/9/2003 12:30:54 PM
No, not a guy but... ...I know and feel right now exactly what you describe in this write from the depth of your soul. Thank you for sharing this offering, Crystal-Rain. Love and peace, Regis.

Can You Feel Me? (Poetry) - 12/9/2003 6:42:40 AM
The memory is always better than reality after time has already passed. It is our nature to wish to retrieve what has once already slipped through our fingers. I do understand that longing which proves persistent even in time but fortunately I kept those feelings at bay so as not to interfere with the present. Excellent work. Amor

Can You Feel Me? (Poetry) - 12/8/2003 1:17:55 PM
Wonderful longing write!

Can You Feel Me? (Poetry) - 12/8/2003 12:51:41 PM
