My thoughts on Writing, Mediocrity, and Sequence (Article) - 11/12/2007 3:08:46 PM|
Gosh, your work is so profound. Next to that of Emily Dickinson, and Elizabeth Barret Browning...it speaks...and is sooooo much like your mind reflecting my own...I know you will keep writing...and you have inspired me to continue writing....or at least strive to finish my epic poem...which puts all my others together to tell that linear story....Cyndi

Mirror Hands (Poetry) - 2/18/2011 3:53:18 AM
This one reminds us that in every aspect of life there is a Darkside, The dark side to life itself is death. a darkside to the soul,is temptation, A dark side to love is lust. We must always be be prepared to expose this darkside to the light of Gods soul where it will be embraced and entwined into our journey through life.
Afterhours (Poetry) - 2/18/2011 3:31:15 AM
This one to me is a very deep and riveting poem, it speaks volumes, but also reveals the discust we often feel in our own existence at times. The often dryness of life. Brings to light the things that used to entertain us but now we see it as a once temporary fix as it were to remove from us the pain of the mundaine, That no longer serves to bring us fulfillment only regret it would seem. Life here on earth needs CPR, it needs to be revived, it needs a fresh awakening a new beginning. We need to start anew.
i miss my love (Poetry) - 2/17/2011 12:44:02 AM
You are truly a talented poet, you write from the heart, not from the mind. You feelings and emotions come from deep within, as they are layed bare for others to share. Keep doing what your doing C. Nichols as your words touch the souls of others. We have some very talented writers here at Authors Den I must say. And your one of them. Yours truly Author Garry E. Lewis
Rainswept (Poetry) - 2/17/2011 12:33:10 AM
Very touching indeed, I was at my nieces side along with her husband when they were told that her baby boy was still born. This little guys name was Caleb. I held his little body in my arms in their room at the hospital and as I looked down upon this precious little boy with his little blue stocking cap, I could hear the Angels weeping. But at the same time rejoicing as they were watching and waiting for Calebs arrival into Heavens gates and into the arms of Jesus Christ. "Suffer not the little children to come unto me, said Jesus for such is the kingdom of Heaven." I had the honor of performing little Caleb funeral service. To this day I will never forget that precious little boy, or his wonderful caring parents. They just recently were blessed with another little baby boy, I am pleased to say he is doing just fine! When God closes a door, he opens a window. I pray you find peace and comfort in these words my dear C. Nichols Yours truly Author Garry E. Lewis

To Find Forget (Poetry) - 9/15/2010 11:13:03 AM
Ouch, I can relate to this one. Love is the greatest and the worst feelings we ever experience, yet I will still risk the emptiness for a chance at the fullness of it all . Time heals all wounds ? Or is it time wounds all heels ! :-)

and why not ? I always say " roll the dice ". we can be our own worst judges of what might be possible...
The Break Up (Poetry) - 5/13/2009 3:21:41 AM

the beautiful thing about life and love is that despite ourselves... they will keep on offering themselves to us, always ready for rebuilding and renewing..
Thinly Cracked (Poetry) - 1/9/2009 10:24:23 PM
The effects of abuse run so deeply it sometimes seems that is all there is. There IS more look to your heart, there you will find it.
Warmth and Love to you.

Thinly Cracked (Poetry) - 1/9/2009 6:37:48 AM
Emotional and wondering write.
After reading this...I felt the words came from a person whom lost a tremendous love in their lives...and felt they could not go forward in love ever.

Starting Again (Poetry) - 1/7/2009 10:23:24 AM
I think we all do this, some need to re-visit those rooms even though we can't repaint the walls...
Philosophical (Poetry) - 1/7/2009 10:21:59 AM
"thought-full" words, perhaps if our world were smaller or more focused ?

Taking Chances to Care (Poetry) - 12/24/2008 6:11:59 AM
yes, to a certain extent we create our situations, but also we 'allow' them to thrive when we are too afraid to make the hard choices or do the painful work. I live in a glass house... so I can't throw stones.. :-)
What you mean (Poetry) - 12/24/2008 6:08:09 AM
wow, this scrapes the soul of fragility and vulnerablility, and yet it is so beautiful how you are in touch with yourself and your situation, I can't help but envy you and cry for you at the same time... just wonderful writing..

Good save. Carin'
Taking Chances to Care (Poetry) - 12/19/2008 6:39:00 PM
I think these "Being rejected, forgotten, misunderstood" are the greatest fears of all, for me anyway, having experienced each of these, where they were and are not self imposed. Standing on the outside looking in, is a painful thing and not being accepted for who you are is devastating, especially when the desire to be a part of things are intense. My intuition is very keen and keeps me safe from mean people, who may otherwise chrush my heart. This is a brilliant write. I seem to have related to it very well. Thank you for writing! Warmth, Carin'
Taking Chances to Care (Poetry) - 12/19/2008 1:26:33 PM

Fear of Love (Poetry) - 12/18/2008 8:43:08 PM
I have to agree with Jim on this one. I say go for it, if it seems real and your intuition feels it, than it is more than worth it.
Warmth and Love to you. Carin'

Memories of a Lost Boy & Girl (Poetry) - 12/17/2008 10:57:49 AM
wow.... I'm speechless... I can SEE the poem as it plays out, this would make a great story I'll bet.
Fear of Love (Poetry) - 12/17/2008 10:53:16 AM
And yet it is sooo great to have the opportunity to feel all these crazy emotions about love... much better than no chance at love at all. I believe the universe truly wants us to be happy and therefore steers us gently to what we desire... I can say " Don't be afraid ", but not knowing your heart I'd say " trust in yourself and if you can... trust in another " , but always take the chance for love. I so enjoy when you write from your heart.... best wishes !

Surviving Few (Poetry) - 12/16/2008 5:51:09 PM
"Black memories we all ran from as surely as if They were demons coming to take our souls In time, in too little precious time,
Maybe they did."
One day at a time, the reality becomes clear, you are the one that had the strength to rise up when there was no other way to go, there are just too many that just couldn't do it, for whatever reasons. This is a perfect description of the past catching up with you, now you just have to come to terms with it. Warmth and Love to you.
Surviving Few (Poetry) - 12/16/2008 5:39:15 PM
You have written a scene played over and over in time. Unbridled fun, friends...and then an outcome!

a beautiful comparison between the seduction of fine wine and the promise of love.... well done !
Daddy (ala Sylvia Plath) (Poetry) - 12/10/2008 5:30:12 AM
This is so heart wrenching and so real. How the actions of one can steer the life of another. People have many distorted views of how to show love, but when you write it down so honest and innocent, from the eyes of growing girl, it is hard to understand how anyone could not see what pain they cause. Being the dad of innocent daughter in my own divorce, I have always strived to assure her of my love for her.. all the time. Still, sometimes I feel like I have let her down anyway. I hurt for your aching heart and can see where your beautiful insight comes from, pain and rejection, which seems to open us up ever deeper for the swords..
The Gamble (Poetry) - 12/10/2008 5:19:21 AM
Love the way you used quarter, dime, pennies and " change ". Your thought process makes your writing extra juicy !
To Feel Again (Poetry) - 12/10/2008 5:16:57 AM
Giving it ' all ' for love, sometimes it hurts, sometimes it's beautiful... always... it's worth it. You write from the heart and that is where the real poetry lives...
Saving the Peaces of You (Poetry) - 12/10/2008 5:14:14 AM
wow, indeed ! One of your best, I think. You are a believer in love, despite all it's lousy odds and dirty tricks. I am a believer too.
Taking Risks (Poetry) - 12/10/2008 5:10:52 AM
you write so beautifully and so 'in touch '. Sometimes it is hard to put feelings to words, but you do it wonderfully here. I can feel the fear and uncertainty in " sitting on the fence ", wanting to jump off on one side, but always fearful of rejection. I've walked that line many times..
Saving the Peaces of You (Poetry) - 12/9/2008 11:24:26 AM

What a very touching poem. I don't think anything would be harder than losing a child, I saw my sister go through it, the agony she felt.
Death of a Child (Poetry) - 10/21/2008 1:51:39 PM
Oh dear God, a reverent prayer-like piece to such an angel of child who I am sure touched many lives. The wounds are deep and in your hearts she will remain the beautiful, loving child God meant her to be. I am so deeply saddened to hear this. My thoughts and prayers are with you....
Be always safe,

I enjoyed this poem and love the way you wrapped it all up so neatly at the end. Sorry I can't afford to donate to keep you here. I can barely afford my own gold membership. Platinum is out of the question. My website is free and gets many hits. A lot of the Authors Den also post there. You might want to check it out. I hope that invitation is not considered "commercial" because my only intent and purpose is to gain exposure for poets.

Good and exactly true write, reaching out for your love and knowing you are going to find it. It will be well worth the wait for someone who loves you and trusts you and you can put your trust in them too. Liked this poem very much.
My Love Is (Poetry) - 7/10/2008 6:30:14 PM
Telling what love means to you lets us think about what love means to us. Eternal love is great and everyone should experience it. You said the right love words with this write and it is so refreshing to read a love poem like this with everything going on alright. God Bless you.

A wonderfully written poem :-).I like it very much
My Love Is (Poetry) - 7/10/2008 2:42:57 PM
Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm you gone and define it sista. You have extraordinary images that make you want to stand at love's edge and stare into the cosmos for a lifetime just to see if there's love rather than life in outerspace. Excellent write!
My Love Is (Poetry) - 7/10/2008 1:35:50 PM
I really like this poem! I like how the each line draws a beautiful picture, capturing what your love is like. A very visual poem!
Worth the Wait (Poetry) - 7/10/2008 12:54:57 PM
"...To hunger so deeply makes every meal
A lush banquet of delight..." So very true my dear, couldn't agree more with you.
Not to mention makes one appreciate even more~loved this write.
Blessings and take care,
Hanging on in Distopia (Poetry) - 7/10/2008 5:04:14 AM
Wonderful read and subliminal messages seeps through, thoroughly enjoyed the way this penning was written.
I loved many lines throughout this work "...I give out love like candy
To all that ache for sweetness
While I hunger..." extemely bold statements~loved it!
and then here;
"...You are a deadman and I am a ghost..." WOW!!
Thank you for sharing and it is great that you are enjoying the den,
Hanging on in Distopia (Poetry) - 7/8/2008 12:26:26 PM
So many ways to read this, and all of them are excellent. I always enjoy your writing, and I love these lines most of all..
< <I won't let it weigh me down
You can't take what I don't give >>
lots of "relating" to this poem ...
Insomnia (Poetry) - 6/16/2008 8:12:31 PM
Sounds so eerily familiar. Gave up years ago trying to sleep through the night, now I work on puzzles, needlepoint, crochet or find other things to keep my interest until I get tired again. Sure make it rough trying to stay awake during the day though, nice piece...
Be always safe,
Insomnia (Poetry) - 6/16/2008 11:34:47 AM
well said... the body might rest, but not while the mind wanders on, through memories and what if's and the one's that slipped away...
Love A Fault (Poetry) - 6/16/2008 7:45:19 AM
The best poems are ones that relate to ppl (in my mind) and I totally relate to the feelings you've expressed here...
Insomnia (Poetry) - 6/16/2008 7:14:27 AM
No peace was in my bed for months and months, til I asked my doctor for sleeping pills. Now he gave me them and I sleep long and dream some too but wake up each day realizing it is time to get out of bed and do my things. I don't see anything wrong with taking sleeping pills if approved by your doctor. If you don't sleep your minds gets to wandering too much and you can become very ill. I'd rather sleep then not and let it be such a long night. I do think this write is good and informative though, but wish you sweet dreams each night now. Counting sheep like they say to do does not work either. I tried that many times to no avail. Sometimes it is what you eat before going to bed that keeps you awake too or the caffeince you take before bedtime. Anyway pleasant dreams and have a happy day.
The Escapist (Poetry) - 6/9/2008 3:59:22 PM
I've read this many times before I commented...each time I get something new from it... this is just brilliant writing... I'd love to hear your interpretation of it..
Dirty Laundry (Poetry) - 6/6/2008 3:04:09 PM
Sad story heartwrenching, happens so often too. I hung out the wash for 4 girls many a day, in freezing winter, steamy summer, did not cause him to stay or appreciate me. He was not strong enough to stay, maybe that is so true of you here too.

Why I Cannot Kiss You (Sensual) (Poetry) - 5/29/2008 9:31:14 AM
sigh..... romance is everything...
Why I Cannot Kiss You (Sensual) (Poetry) - 5/29/2008 6:26:13 AM
Just stumbled on this by accident. Wow! Expertly crafted exploration of that state of sensual desire that so many try to capture in words, but few are able to. "Floodgates of my desire"....nice allusional simile. If this is but a random sample of the productive matrix behind them, I will have to take a further look at more of your things.

Turning Point (Poetry) - 5/28/2008 9:53:18 AM
Always new paths to be found. Sometimes the road less traveled is best. But find your pathway and go on it. You never know when your life is turned around for the better.
Come to the Mountains With Me (Poetry) - 5/28/2008 9:32:07 AM
so many excellent pictures here , starting with the mountains.... my favorite place on earth... Lost in the woods with the smells and quiet, who couldn't clearly understand love, with all it's mystery..
Come to the Mountains With Me (Poetry) - 5/28/2008 9:29:28 AM
Ah, I love your voice in this writing it opened this readers mind to many visual images & settings could transpire. A great romantic write!

Very haunting poem, I used to fear death, I no longer since I found the Love of Christ!
Broken Hearted Hollows (Poetry) - 5/28/2008 9:08:34 AM
deep and"soul-full" writing and an honest portrayal of the coldness of the world today.. Your renewal will come from within.. and I can read between the lines that you are a survivor ! Great writing !
Broken Hearted Hollows (Poetry) - 5/28/2008 9:07:48 AM
most beautiful, most heartfelt!
Sexy (Poetry) - 3/23/2008 3:06:17 PM
I can relate to this poem! You can definitely feel the speaker's lust! I was intrigued by the line, "the heat of your tough".
When He Left (Poetry) - 2/4/2008 5:45:45 PM

Winters Attraction (Poetry) - 2/4/2008 5:36:32 PM

Love A Fault (Poetry) - 11/26/2007 3:22:46 PM
We certainly are a vulnerable species to so very much. You give realistic insight here into a womans delicate heart and how it can be wounded and strong at the same moment. Superb!
Blessings and Light ...
Love A Fault (Poetry) - 11/26/2007 3:10:05 PM
beautifully written, so many pictures for the mind to digest... painful and yet, beautiful... like love ?
Love A Fault (Poetry) - 11/26/2007 10:19:42 AM
"...The love we may once have had is dead
This hurt, the expanse, the emptiness remains
Grown wide like a crater
Of earth spread out by a bomb
And I wander the distopiate future
I have built in my mind
Lost loves do hurt...but just like the wound, it will heal from the inside,out...leaving only a faint scar, where new love now, resides
...and you can bet your last dollar, that heart is much stronger, next time around...
You've expressed it to a T!
Love and Peace~
Eros Drowning Ego (R rated) (Poetry) - 11/21/2007 6:38:13 PM
There is deep sensuality and passion within your poem...a work that escalates the eyes and the emotions...
very nice work...
When He Left (Poetry) - 11/21/2007 6:32:53 PM
A lot of emotional release and realistic sadness within your poem...so sad to read when one is fallen away from their relationship of family...
When He Left (Poetry) - 10/21/2007 3:28:46 PM
Great to see you post again, yet the contents is sad.
Yet looking at you bio again, n again, I want to feel this is fiction, as no-one is so daft.... Yet the angst pours out.
Weird I trusted a lass in NY for the last four years, she claimed to be miss perfect, never cheats or cheated. I went on another poetry site under another name, and found oud she'd been with some geezer Richard behind my back.... Now I'm life long celibate, I can never trust another woman after so many times of being betrayed...
When He Left (Poetry) - 10/21/2007 2:12:48 PM
Such a shame, all that has happened. Keep the faith and look to the future where hope resides. Perhaps them you will find peace and solitude in new adventures....
When He Left (Poetry) - 10/21/2007 12:28:18 PM
I tend to think, that your " topsoil of richness " has survived after all and these written flowers you have planted are blooming quite nicely. A sad write, yes, but what remains is full of tomorrows !
The Peace of Silence (Poetry) - 10/21/2007 12:21:53 PM
This is beautiful on many levels, but mostly because I go there too, and you have described it so well.. solace, renewal, peace..and even gratitude. Silence speaks volumes !
When He Left (Poetry) - 10/21/2007 7:59:10 AM
This is my first time reading your poetry. It's beautiful. I love the "door slamming shut so softly" and "topsoil of richness taht still knew how to grow flowers." It's too bad he didn't enjoy that garden, though looks like he didn't mind plucking a bunch of flowers from it anyways. --Charlie
When He Left (Poetry) - 10/21/2007 3:27:03 AM
Powerful feelings here! I have been through something very similar to this...it hurts when we are betrayed and even years later, the betrayer cannot find the courage to own up to their thoughtless actions.
When He Left (Poetry) - 10/21/2007 3:06:06 AM
"When He Left" depicts the reality of emotions of a sad union that couldn't find togetherness. An outstanding composition poetized to show art and life.

When Love Came Calling (Poetry) - 9/22/2007 3:13:52 PM
I've read some of your work... not that much, but you do have a flair in short story that lends itself beautifully to poetry. I read this because it had poem in the text. It is a soft and wondrous example of what you can do with your pen. I encourage you to write, "free verse poetry,"' or... or whatever we call it.
I write and let it flow, and if some of it is good, I cheer.... but not very loudly.
I find my titles within the text on most work, so you might want to consider, "Heart Afire" - since that is what happens in the poem. But, what do I know? - Bill
Childhood of Abuse (Poetry) - 8/22/2007 3:12:35 PM
Dear C; Those kinds of childhood memories never do go away. I know mine didn't. So we must rise above them. I vowed my kids would never suffer the abuse I did. I spanked them, but never slapped them around or took out my anger upon them. They telephone me regularly; I visit them; they have even asked me to come live with them in my old age. The cycle stopped. I stopped it. (you may wish to read my poem "The Light at the End of the Tunnel") All the best to you and yours, Doc
Misery is Cheap (Poetry) - 8/10/2007 11:08:34 PM
Excellent poem. Very straightforward and profound.
Misery is Cheap (Poetry) - 8/8/2007 8:54:31 PM
Wonderful thoughts. It's so easy to be dragged down. I love that opening line(s):
"Remember that misery is cheap
Until you fully realize what you've purchased"
Misery is Cheap (Poetry) - 8/8/2007 12:44:11 PM
Cheap, cheap, bloody cheap, birds going cheap ceap, is cheap,
but losing everything in a divorce, CHEAP, huh, nowt is cheap lass,
I have to lick road, and that's my breakfast, for lunch I eat slugs n snails n puppy dog tails, but worse of all for dinner I'm forced to eat at THe Pizza Hut...LOL
Sorry in me best Monty Python voice is this.... Nowt wrong with sucking on breast..
Well you know what they say, (Thinks... infact they don't really say it, Andy's saying it, but if it's wrong he can say, well they said it.) You only get what you pay for, so don't buy cheap rubbish, and if God really blesses you, you too could have someone nearly as great as Andy...

It looks like you had good insight into your emotions at an early age. Really telling piece effectively stated.
The Peace of Silence (Poetry) - 8/4/2007 10:37:54 AM
So sad, but I find a lot of truth in your words...sometimes silence is better than all of the "noise" that others can inflict upon our lives.
The Peace of Silence (Poetry) - 8/4/2007 9:46:01 AM
Sad...heart wrenching. I love it. Nice write. I can feel the heartache, and you reaching out. Bravo!
Learning to Slow Down (Poetry) - 8/3/2007 2:26:28 AM
You said so much in so short a poem. We all make mistakes but learning from them is what's important. That's why life is such a great teacher. Bless You, Paul.
Learning to Slow Down (Poetry) - 8/2/2007 5:18:50 PM
