And to you, my dear friend: (Poetry) - 3/13/2007 6:57:35 PM
Oh Mia, though I know not who you wrote this for, you have given the poet the most gracious and wonderful tribute that I could ever conceive. To have someone, anyone enjoy their work that much that such a loving poem as this could be inspired would be wonderful. Nice to see you back on the charts.

i like the verve and direction you took this poem through ...
Love Poem (Poetry) - 11/30/2006 10:33:21 AM
It's too hard not to mention this write. It's beautiful Mia!
Love Poem (Poetry) - 11/29/2006 9:34:16 PM
I think this is unique and unusual write that touches at the writers feelings of dissappointment in the world around her. She can and does touch the reader with her mind and thoughts and her passion shines over and above the last line that although seemingly negative is negated by the rest of her sweet words.
When the Clock Strikes Later (Poetry) - 11/17/2006 10:57:40 PM
I can see you wrapping your arms around yourself, and whirling around your room with a smile of bliss upon your face.

Very relaxed and gentle write that makes the reader smile with it's image.

your poem has me smiling and looking up 'Joshua Tree'!
Joshua Tree (Poetry) - 6/9/2006 5:40:26 PM
the fate of the romantic heart depends on the continuous passion of its embrace ...
very nicely penned ... good rhyme ...
Joshua Tree (Poetry) - 6/6/2006 8:14:05 AM
Give it your all as you did in these lines and all will be fine
Joshua Tree (Poetry) - 6/4/2006 4:37:26 AM
Sweet is the promise of new love and romance, as love blossoms the butterflys of uncertainty mix with the passion of the heart to create such a devine pain. Well done Mia, I really liked this one.
My Heart (Poetry) - 5/26/2006 1:39:30 PM
I like this one, it offers so much truth. Awesome work!

My Darkness in This Life (Poetry) - 5/13/2006 6:57:05 AM
Eighteen words that speak of humanities most prevalent struggle! Loving and not being loved has plagued the human condition since the beginning. Too many have wandered into emotional wastelands and been ruined because of this horrid thing. Thankfully . . . great poetry, art, and literature has been written and created to force ourselves to understand so simple, and so complicated a thing. Richard Cederberg
Spring, 2006 (Poetry) - 5/6/2006 8:57:27 PM
Sometimes we all forget how truly lucky we are in this world but then somthing or someone takes the time to remind us, this poem is a great nudge to remember this message and I for one thank you for the reminder.

Great rhymes that spit a lot of fiery passion.
Humanity (Poetry) - 3/7/2006 12:25:38 PM
Great poem. I know what you mean. But sometimes, the only answer is to live like the Buddhists do and live for the moment, as it is perfect just as it is, without expectation.
Humanity (Poetry) - 2/14/2006 4:18:15 PM

Last Words (Poetry) - 9/20/2005 2:08:10 PM
You make a powerful statement with this one of the oppressed taking a last stance against a tyrant. I hope you are able to keep on walking when you go Mia if this poem is true. Best wishes and nice to see you on board again.
Last Words (Poetry) - 9/20/2005 2:08:02 PM
Powerful rant! Interesting closure, Mia!
The Hard Part (Poetry) - 9/8/2005 2:28:54 PM
Oh Mia it is not hard to fall in love, sounds like you are already there but the hard part is the risk that you may get hurt. this poem screams of your fear of that, however if you want the beauty and wonder, and magic of love it is a risk well worth taking,
Nice to see you posted again,
The Hard Part (Poetry) - 9/8/2005 10:29:59 AM

Summer (Poetry) - 6/15/2005 3:39:36 AM
Well expressed and passionate feelings coming straight from the heart and because I once sat in your seat I know that is how you truly feel. All I can say is if you allow yourself to heal you will love again and put your heart back together but only you can decide when.n Be strong Mia.

Her Royal Highness (Poetry) - 5/26/2005 2:44:11 PM
Well I hope that they do give you what you want and Sue is right. I like a poem that starts off like yours did and then just gets you in the end like that. Jealous you bet as you did this good.
Her Royal Highness (Poetry) - 5/26/2005 11:57:17 AM
this is just fantastic, the realism and the desire, combined to make a poem that makes the reader sit up and pay attention.
Her Royal Highness (Poetry) - 5/26/2005 11:56:43 AM
A very powerfully written poem that is felt with much emotion and pain! Your work constitutes a release of past transgressions...I encourage you to keep writing and never stop. It is your lifeline...and I salute you for giving us a chance to share what you are going through.
Spoiled Rotten (Poetry) - 5/25/2005 5:04:33 PM

Suicide (Poetry) - 5/23/2005 11:55:42 AM
Well this is irony at it's finest but I hope it is not real life only rambling words of imaginative poetry. YOU have too much talent, are too smart and too attractive to even be considering suicide.

Please Cry For Me, Pasadena (Poetry) - 5/10/2005 3:14:43 PM
Mia as you say youth and aging happen to all and only time teaches the true depth of heartache and the real pain of love and loss. Great write.
Please Cry For Me, Pasadena (Poetry) - 5/10/2005 1:47:41 PM
This was very good and I liked the parody here. A fine write.
Please Cry For Me, Pasadena (Poetry) - 5/10/2005 10:43:18 AM
Exciting! Every street is litered with people like the ones you penned about.

Ah, young love. Truly a country western song. Pasadena is a lovely city.
The Anniversary (Poetry) - 5/9/2005 10:57:36 AM
Hmmmnnnn sorta lost a little here but the poem seems to be a puzzle waiting to be solved.
Myspace Updates (Poetry) - 5/9/2005 4:56:40 AM
You are so right and this is such a dibilitating disease that the public in general know so little about. Time for more education on this subject and your poem does shed some light on the feelings of one suffering Bi-Polar. Good write Mia.
Myspace Updates (Poetry) - 5/9/2005 4:11:54 AM
I'm speechless...but this can happen to anyone of us who are too trusting...

For the Love of Literature; For the Respect of Silence (Poetry) - 5/6/2005 5:51:09 PM
Sweet imagery I can almost visualize you sitting in a stuffy classroom while some boring prof reads the masters to the class.

Go for the watermelon... you can be depressed later.
Rainy Thursday (Poetry) - 5/5/2005 1:09:25 PM
Mia, this is such an excellent poem as you meet the reader where he/she is and draw them in to your joy of wanting to live full and free again and back to the need to withdraw or escape and, finally, into that all-powerful line, "I am lost and no one is looking for me." Wow. Don't know you well, but I want to echo what Felix has said below. Dawn
Rainy Thursday (Poetry) - 5/5/2005 11:02:30 AM
I hope you find your way in the confusion and work back to the light you have too much talent and beauty to be lost for long.
Great write and I ache for you with each line.
This Is Who I Am (Poetry) - 4/28/2005 9:48:45 AM
do one and you will certainly never have to worry about the other. i hope this is just a poem, it is an excellent one, by the way...but no way for you to spend any part of your life...although i have spent a few days like that myself
This Is Who I Am (Poetry) - 4/28/2005 2:11:00 AM
Mia although this is as Allen says a strong poem with all the punch of a hammer to the chest I hope it is not true because in your twenties with the talent you exhibit here on the net, the beauty I see in ;your profile pic, and the years of youth still ahead of you there is no way you should feel this sad. Big hug from old Boppa Perry.
This Is Who I Am (Poetry) - 4/28/2005 12:01:44 AM
Mia, this is a strong write, it speaks well of the emotions within.
Cloudy Monday (Poetry) - 4/27/2005 10:02:08 AM

Cloudy Monday (Poetry) - 4/25/2005 2:47:33 PM
Mia this is an excellant look at someone who's finally come to accept albeit a little angrily the end of a love and the beginning of the time to move on to a newer and hopefully better life. Well done Mia.
Cloudy Monday (Poetry) - 4/25/2005 2:18:07 PM

Four Months and Four Days (Poetry) - 4/23/2005 6:44:21 PM
Interesting poem. I like the reference to the yarn. Well done writing.
Four Months and Four Days (Poetry) - 4/18/2005 6:43:10 PM
I like the poem, the form, and what I take as the meaning. (Which may be all incorrent.) Good work. Henry
Four Months and Four Days (Poetry) - 4/18/2005 4:15:43 PM
i loved this. nothing cheap about you
Four Months and Four Days (Poetry) - 4/18/2005 2:58:23 PM
Yes but cheap yarn in the hands of someone who is a skilled and loving craftsman can be turned into a master tapestry. Great write Mia and great imagery.
Sadness (Poetry) - 4/17/2005 7:40:25 AM
sadness is like a shadow over the heart, mia. The sadness of keeping to oneself because of tiredness and fear of people, etc.
You've captured the depths of this emotion. k
EFB (Poetry) - 4/16/2005 8:47:27 PM

EFB (Poetry) - 4/15/2005 2:12:39 AM
Wow...good or bad Mis this man must have had something to stir your blood so forcefully that it comes out so powerful in this poem. Great stuff.
Four Months and One Day (Poetry) - 4/14/2005 8:20:59 AM
This is my first review. I love your poem. I was smiling and happy and the pace sped up and then dropped the bomb... Life isn't pretty most of the time. Acknowledging this is all we can do sometimes.
Four Months and One Day (Poetry) - 4/14/2005 5:23:12 AM
Mia altough this is a sad verse it is also a hopeful one, because if you can find love once you can someday recapture those same sunshine feelings with another. Deep inner reflective rght Mia well done.

Library Science (Poetry) - 3/3/2005 10:22:09 AM
Very sad, deeply touching poem, beautifully written!
Last three lines are superb!
Library Science (Poetry) - 3/3/2005 9:39:04 AM
Mia I understood this poem so well and yet it still cut into my heart like a knife. The death of love is so sad no matter who the participants were or what caused the killing stroke of the love that once was. I hope you do not give up on finding love again.
Library Science (Poetry) - 3/3/2005 9:15:55 AM
this is so poignant, and so well written

Ain't Gon' Be No Slave (Poetry) - 2/16/2005 4:57:05 PM
Truly a powerful piece about the endurance and spirit of a race that overcame the burden of slavery to continue the fight for equality. Well done Mia
Ain't Gon' Be No Slave (Poetry) - 2/16/2005 4:27:14 PM
A heartshattering write--no one should have to endure the degradation and totally lose their freedom. Powerfully expressed.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :(
Ain't Gon' Be No Slave (Poetry) - 2/16/2005 3:30:52 PM
The depth of this powerful write about slavery and its aftermath comes out so well. No one should be a slave to anyone or anything.

love this-all so real
Alyssa Jo, II (Poetry) - 2/10/2005 5:41:13 PM
Short and to the point with a message and feeling that lingers...Enjoyed..
Alyssa Jo, II (Poetry) - 2/10/2005 4:06:02 PM
We often procrastinate in love for differnet reasons. fear, anger, other committments or just lack of interest at the time. Unfortunately life does not always play fair in love and sometomes will not give us a second chance. Beautiful simplistic write, I love it.
Alyssa Jo, II (Poetry) - 2/10/2005 3:30:48 PM
Sad. Love the brevity.
Alyssa Jo, II (Poetry) - 2/10/2005 1:45:45 PM

Again Mari has summed up what I wanted to say about the last line.
David (Poetry) - 2/3/2005 8:14:50 AM
I love that last line. I think it sums up the whole beautiful piece. :)
David (Poetry) - 2/3/2005 2:58:19 AM
Very nicely done. I agree with Felix on the wordplay. Awesome.
David (Poetry) - 2/3/2005 2:40:13 AM

Riley's Owner (Poetry) - 2/2/2005 6:08:39 PM
A beautiful pen
Riley's Owner (Poetry) - 2/2/2005 5:06:38 PM
Isn't the moment when you forst realize you are in love one of the most beautiful but terrifying ones there is. You grabed that feeling out of the air and put it into words. Well done.
Riley's Owner (Poetry) - 2/2/2005 3:34:13 PM
Nice title. =)
Riley's Owner (Poetry) - 2/2/2005 11:24:27 AM
LOL! Yes, I agree with Mari and Sue about the title. However, the poem is terrific!
Riley's Owner (Poetry) - 2/2/2005 11:05:55 AM
Yes, I agree with Sue, the title does strand me beside the road without a ride. But the poem itself is terrific. A testiment to self discovery and a beautiful aspect of 'self' at that!
Riley's Owner (Poetry) - 2/2/2005 10:11:59 AM
This a great poem but the title has me baffled

My Heart (Poetry) - 1/19/2005 4:22:40 PM
This is a very passionate romantic write that speaks volumes about love and romance. Nice work.
My Heart (Poetry) - 1/19/2005 2:02:49 PM
So many times, we try and damage our heart. Whether inside abuse or outside substances, the heart hangs on, and waits to come out. Very good poem.
My Heart (Poetry) - 1/19/2005 12:30:42 PM
Yes the heart does things to you that will pin you to the floor like you said.

"the struggle wraps itself around me" how well I know this feeling but have never been able to find the words as you have to capture the feeling, well done Mia.

I love the ambiguity in the end: Who's smile? Her own? or His? I hope it's her own.

Seamless and wonderful. The title is rather esoteric though. (to me.) Is this intentional?

a little faith, give a lot of happiness and even more laughter

Once again I agree with you and believe that the new century will be dominated by cyber love, (not to be confused with cyber sex.) The age of computers has given everyone even the shy a chance to reach out and touch someone. Age, race, looks, weight and fnancial status fall away and have little matter to the lonely. You have captured this well.
Ode to a Liar (Poetry) - 12/30/2004 4:05:27 AM
After reading other comments my first tendency was to agree with them but...in reality it often takes us time to see through the lies and I think that's where the hurting comes in. Even the idea that we must play the game to protect our emotions in a sense is a loss we have suffered, the loss of trust. Anyway before I ramble much more well done piece,

I love the symetry of this as a writer/poet but also love it as a songwriter, these would make fantastic song lyrics. Thank you for sharing your talent Mia.

If I could reach out and touch you I'd give you a big hug and say your colours are beautiful let them show.

Some thoughts are hard to paint. You've painted a perfectly clear one. Happy New Year!

That really hurts. A dagger in the heart.
Wonder why persistance comes sometimes.
God Bless You and Your family.
Peace and Happiness for you today and all days.

I don't know if Bukowski liked birds either, but he sounds like he flipped the bird a few times.
The Beats (Poetry) - 11/5/2004 6:46:11 AM
And the beat goes on and on and on. Well done. Will Rogers said, " I never met a man I didn't like. " He never mentioned women or birds.
The Beats (Poetry) - 11/4/2004 8:20:31 PM
keep reading ... you'll find a poet whose muse you can't refuse because he has a beat you can grove to ..

Twenty-First Century Romance (Poetry) - 10/22/2004 3:47:53 AM
Everything is so fast paced today, at times it gets hard to even remember what it feels like to smile. Well written.
Twenty-First Century Romance (Poetry) - 10/21/2004 4:49:41 PM
Nicely put...we must learn to find pleasure in our differences, joy in our individualities...as corny as that may sound...it is those differences that makes each of us interesting to the other. And, yes, "opposites do attract." Wonderful write...

Did she pause because her mind did? Lots to ponder in this pen
Bukowski Mix-Up (Poetry) - 10/8/2004 8:16:18 PM
in a way she's cheated on herself by allowing herself to be surrounded by cheaters ... change is her true option ...

Gosh! Are you reading my mind? I was just going to talk about the same subject this morning. Was going to write a poem about lies.

Liars don't care, they just lie to themselves about losing.
