Dominik Umpire (Short Story) - 6/17/2007 6:09:39 AM|
Interesting...This would make a great novel. I like the explanation for the origin of vampires and the twist of them being good and totally misunderstood.
Dominik Umpire (Short Story) - 3/26/2007 8:18:42 PM
Great narration in this, Crissy. I found the voice of Dominik to be authentic and it held my interest all the way through. The content is good, and it makes me want to read more of it.

Really intriguing story. Tightly structured and well paced, I never got bored reading it. On the contrary. There was a building tension throughout and the ending was perfect. Well done.

The Unknown (Poetry) - 5/3/2008 7:42:01 PM
The unknown is always a mystical dream that flows along the river of our thoughts...encouraging us to search and seek the depths of our souls...searching for nothing and yet finding everything...
nice work Crissy...
I liked this poem very much...
The Unknown (Poetry) - 4/6/2008 12:07:27 AM
Emotionally stunning poem that searches for love that seems to be just on the edge of tomorrow or perhaps the edge of yesterday. Great write.

They Call Me Amaranthine (Poetry) - 3/3/2008 11:23:17 AM
Nicely done, Crissy. This gives the reader pause for thought. Thank you. Love and best wishes,
They Call Me Amaranthine (Poetry) - 3/3/2008 6:02:23 AM
Your talent shines in this write of hope, compassion and wisdom, the ability of mankind to decimate the commoner is historicly accurate, yet your character stands noble at the crest of the hill...
They Call Me Amaranthine (Poetry) - 3/2/2008 9:24:50 PM
One can almost see the future of mankind and the world of the future...if we could communicate forward and or backward we would also need to be able to show the future...or the past, in order to save or change the outcome...
Nice work, Crissy...
enjoyed....Art Sun...welcome back.

A corrupt system that needs to be seriously challenged. Thank you for this.

Enjoyed reading this with a child's perspective. Really good!
Wambat (Poetry) - 8/22/2007 6:02:39 AM
Talented as her mother...
a joy to read one who at a young age begins her journey...
Wambat (Poetry) - 8/21/2007 10:10:01 PM
A mighty fine and brilliant piece, six years old you say! Thought I was walking along with her and her pocket pal......
Wambat (Poetry) - 8/21/2007 9:08:56 PM
Wow! That's a lot of smart writing for a six-year-old. Congratulations Cerrina! You're destined to be a great writer. Thanks for sharing this tribute with us. Cheers

Great story, Cerrina! You've got a headstart as a writer and your mom as a "tutor." Good for you. Thanks for sharing this, Crissy. Love and best wishes to you both,

Everything is better in black and white (Poetry) - 8/19/2007 3:37:32 AM
I agree with Art Sun and Phillip, sometimes that "grey" area is exactly the right place to get the best view--the true view of self and world. A powerful message in a tiny verse. Everything may seem better in black and white, but nothing is ever truly that way. There are always shades of grey and that's as it should be. Otherwise life would be extremely boring. I love this piece. Thank you for sharing it.

Beautiful story poem, Crissy. It touched me. Warm wishes, Elizabeth
The Reaper (Poetry) - 8/18/2007 8:17:41 PM
Wow! What a write my friend, powerfully penned with rich powerful imagry...you've penned it well, bravo!
My Own Hell (Poetry) - 8/18/2007 6:13:31 AM
Very nice, you definitely express the deep emotions of confusion and turmoil from within one's own demise of life and thought. You show us how one can become engulfed inside their own fears and create their own dilema. Very nice Crissy.....
The Reaper (Poetry) - 8/18/2007 6:08:22 AM
A very strong expression of poetry, shows the depth of which one can find within the thoughts of time and death which walks along the journey of this world...
nice work, Crissy.....

A speck of dust (Poetry) - 8/2/2007 9:54:35 AM
A lovely story, Crissy. Sometimes, the smallest things can be powerfully symbolic of much greater ones. Thank you for sharing this gift. Love and best wishes to you,
A speck of dust (Poetry) - 7/30/2007 7:38:40 PM
This flows very well and excellent use of the spot on the glass that won't go away. This is a good love poem.
A speck of dust (Poetry) - 7/29/2007 10:10:20 PM
Crissy - the smallest detail, the smallest speck, can bend a lever that moves the world. Lovely imagery, lovely pace.
Here's to your speck of dust!
A speck of dust (Poetry) - 7/29/2007 6:17:27 PM
Amazing write, so true to life! Always found it fascinating how people meet and fall in love. Always the little things that bring them together.....

Loved this each and every line. Held me spell bound. WTG
BEAUTY (Poetry) - 7/29/2007 1:15:48 AM
I am sure you have heard it all too often...but it is true for most. It is always better to love than never loving at all. Pain sometimes brings out the best in our expression. Thus, this excellent write.
I died (Poetry) - 7/3/2007 4:54:46 AM
A very painful and insightful write. You express very well the many deaths we feel at the hands of those who are supposed to love and cherish us, but abuse instead. "Love can be the death of you." A powerful sentence. Abuse is not love, abuse is control. Pure and simple. It takes a great deal of courage to write about these things. I commend you. Elizabeth
Everything is better in black and white (Poetry) - 6/26/2007 2:44:24 PM
The first poem or work of yours that I've reviewed. Hope the grey area is less foggy now.

It has been some time since you wrote this. Hope the grey area passes soon.

This is a great write.
Thanks Hugs Angela
Believe (Poetry) - 6/10/2007 10:36:38 AM
Ah sweet, and I do have a tendency to agree. Love at first sight does happen but I think in most cases it is desire that creates attraction and love only develops with time and effort. I have also heard people say that they cannot love someone because they are friends and it always made me wonder for what would be a more perfect base for love than friendship...perhaps though they are not physically attracted and the friendship card allows no hurt feelings. Anyway this is a great write...honest and open and one that will make readers think.
Believe (Poetry) - 6/9/2007 10:16:35 PM
Crissy I have never read a more
Complete write about believing and caring!
Well I believe that all of your friends here

Great way of showing the contradictory nature of humanity. Liked this alot.
Believe (Poetry) - 6/9/2007 8:24:34 PM
Crissy, the flow of emotion through the lines of this poem show your power. There are many of us who do believe in you; and in whatever way you find God, she believes in you too.
Love is the best kind of belief, after all......

Son (Poetry) - 5/2/2007 8:36:35 AM
Your verses touch my soul, Crissy. Words do not do justice to what you express. So I humbly send you love and peace,
Son (Poetry) - 4/28/2007 9:54:08 PM
A most difficult time, my heart and prayers go out to you in the loss of your son. Such a tragedy indeed. I will keep you and your son always in my prayers.
Son (Poetry) - 4/28/2007 6:01:56 PM
This is so humbling, I can't even imagine your pain. Nothing I can say is worth much. Just know that somebody out there is thinking of you.
Son (Poetry) - 4/28/2007 3:22:06 PM
Darn, it must hurt deeper than any depth, just not seeing my lad for 7 yrs flipped me, your pain must seem intolerable, it is the wrong order, no words will suffice, rest assured you are in my daily prayers, knowing God will give you peace, yet I'm a brit bloke, we never lose our stiff upper, but this has hit me deep.. Babe know you are loved and prayed for on the edge of the world on this little isle...
Son (Poetry) - 4/28/2007 10:06:32 AM
sad. it's so difficult for us to accept that we all are on 'loan' to each other. good write and much luck
Son (Poetry) - 4/28/2007 9:09:47 AM
This is a heartbreaker that is beautifully penned.
Two Angels came (Poetry) - 4/27/2007 1:13:04 PM
As a mother of two, this poem echoes my own thoughts. I am always telling them not to grow up too fast and wish away their childhood. Unfortunately as every parent knows, they are far too eager to do just that.
A touching and heartfelt poem.
Wishing you well,
It's Just Fine (Poetry) - 4/8/2007 1:18:49 PM
It's not fine, I understand the tossing and turning, having arthritis
throughout my body, at a young age of 47yrs.
Could be worse is all I think, as I ice and take Aleves 500milgr.
WE have to give to ourselves too, just come back!
We can't only think of others, time to ReST!
REmember If Mom is not happy- Noone is happy!
We are mirror and we reflect!
You're in my daily thoughts!
Happy EAster Blessings!
WRite on, and on and on(When you can)
This is quite a gem to treasure!

Two Angels came (Poetry) - 3/31/2007 10:27:23 PM
Such a sweet write full of love and passion. Children do grow up much faster than we would like, a necessary heartache. Enjoyed this.
Two Angels came (Poetry) - 3/31/2007 6:49:49 PM
There is no love purer than a mother's love for her children. You've expressed this feeling well Chrissy.
Two Angels came (Poetry) - 3/31/2007 1:50:30 PM
Sincerely touching, Crissy.
Two Angels came (Poetry) - 3/31/2007 11:48:04 AM
Awwwww, I used to tell Sebastian my son to stop growing and getting older.."I can't help it daddy" oh how I understand your maternal angst...
But no fears, when a mum prayers like this, God will never foresake them, or you....
Two Angels came (Poetry) - 3/31/2007 9:25:47 AM
This is precious and you have touched the very meaning of being a loving parent. We do look at our children and wish and pray to protect them always and yes if we could keep them young forever we would.
Two Angels came (Poetry) - 3/31/2007 8:47:46 AM
A beautiful write Crissy, enjoyed this so much, reminded me of myself when my two children were younger..I did hate to see them grow up and have to find their own place in this big scarey world. Now my two angels are twenty seven and twenty two with an angel each of their own, one two the other four. Time has a way of getting away from us...it passes quickly...enjoy, cherish, and savor every moment. But, light note on this review is I have found that when trouble comes, both of my children still come to their mom for comfort and support, just as I go to my mother and I am forty three, but the eternal peace from life is our Heavenly Father...wonderful warm and heartfelt write dear friend.
Blessings from the mountains of Kentucky,
BEAUTY (Poetry) - 3/30/2007 3:22:22 PM
A well written piece to ponder upon...wishing you well...
BEAUTY (Poetry) - 3/29/2007 5:42:15 PM
sometimes the pain of loving someone isn't worth the effort to try to bring out the beauty within their hearts, because there simply isn't any ...
well written ... the emotion in this poem is strong indeed ...
BEAUTY (Poetry) - 3/26/2007 7:52:04 PM
Love is such a fragile step within this life, though it is the greatest sensation within soul and mind, it is the broken heart that finds the difficulty to try and try again, so many have found themselves within the same emotion of your poem and yet so many still have faith to seek and try at love again...
a nice work of this thought within poetic verse...
nice work.....Art Sun...
BEAUTY (Poetry) - 3/26/2007 4:52:18 PM
Wow...I was thinking about this exact topic all day long...is it okay to try again? Frightening for sure. This is a wonderful piece. Thanks for speaking for those of us who couldn't put that intense feeling into words. Abigail

When I look in the mirror, I don't recognize who is looking back. Maybe I don't know who I am. I don't know. This I know. Your words made me think. Thank you, Crissy. Love and peace,
BEAUTY (Poetry) - 3/25/2007 9:50:36 PM
Your poem makes me realize where I am coming from right now. I totally feel what you wrote. Is it okay to say that? I sure hope so because you did, Crissy. Love (and peace too), to you,
BEAUTY (Poetry) - 3/25/2007 10:28:09 AM
I know this for sure, one must move forward and to love again is just part of life... Well said my friend,

This poem makes one think and think again. A very accomplished piece of writing that grabs you from the first word.
BEAUTY (Poetry) - 3/24/2007 4:30:40 PM
This poem breathes and lives and questions the validity of loving again when love turns out to have such a heavy pricetag. Well done.
BEAUTY (Poetry) - 3/24/2007 2:21:36 PM
You are such a truth teller, Crissy. This work does not beat around the bush at all, it strikes at the target. Great job.

Random thoughts (Poetry) - 3/17/2007 5:38:42 PM
I think if people asked themselves the questions you have posted here more often, the world would be quite a different place. There is no time for life anymore, unless life entails making money or struggling just to get by. I think people stop looking at themselves for so long that when it occurs to them they should look again, they are afraid of what they might see. These are smart random thoughts you have.
Random thoughts (Poetry) - 3/17/2007 4:47:07 PM

Enjoyed this one very much Crissy...I did a little soul searching not long ago, reminds me of the poem I posted a couple of months ago...Comfortable in My Skin!...as always a pleasure to read your work!
Random thoughts (Poetry) - 3/17/2007 7:57:31 AM
Chrissy, I've looked in that mirror many times and sometimes I didn't like what I saw as I read my face. We have to know ourselves to even like ourselves and the same applies to our children. None of us take the time to truly get in tune with our hearts and minds. This is a great reminder to all readers.
Random thoughts (Poetry) - 3/17/2007 5:05:54 AM
Powerful write. It makes the reader see themselves in a different light. We should all take time to 'smell the roses' and not take life for granted. Thanks for the reminder, Chrissy.

This write says it all and not much need of a comment, as to answer your question...I looked, really looked in the mirror when I awoke from my first heart operation and realized yea I will die some day.
Family (Poetry) - 3/9/2007 3:54:12 PM
A simple piercing look at reality, basically. Honest depiction of obligation, complete with the lows of wishing it would end, to refusal of weakness. It's a pleasure to read your thoughts laid out on a page.
The Mirage (Poetry) - 3/8/2007 5:42:10 PM
"Yet still we keep on reaching,
For a life that isnít there."
A very well written piece. I love the subject matter. As a struggling writer I find myself reaching continously for that ever elusive dream of being the best writer ever and actually being able to make a living as a full time writer. The secret is to always appreciate what you have while still reaching for those dreams and trying hard not to reach for the impossible dream. Thank you for a very thought provoking poem.
Family (Poetry) - 3/8/2007 7:05:21 AM
You have a very nice write here and many relate to your thoughts, the support of family is so important and with todays society and it's many unfortunate scenarios of separation it is even more important that one supports each other....
nicely written piece.....Art Sun...
Family (Poetry) - 3/5/2007 3:55:43 PM
now this is the kind of poetry that makes one take that second look at what they are doing in their lives....and your right when your a parent or even a child to someone whos given their all we feel and sometimes even need that responsibility
Family (Poetry) - 3/4/2007 9:35:03 PM

A very powerful write my friend! I could envision my mother with every word, she raised three of us by herself, and always worked two and sometimes three jobs to keep food on our table, but there was never a lack of love or respect. Great write my friend, your words are full of compassion, love, and honesty. Also a very wise write! Enjoyed!
Family (Poetry) - 3/4/2007 8:14:03 AM

So true is this~ I was a single mom with eight children looking up at me! I was the only one supporting! Can't say I remember too much, all I know is that three jobs kept me busy and the rent was paid and their was food in the fridge! I surely know this feeling!
Great Write Chrissy~
Love and Peace~

Family (Poetry) - 3/4/2007 3:11:11 AM
Very well expressed my young friend. To know the responsibility for others is to know the true value of love, to fulfill that responsibility against all odds is expressing that love in the strongest way. Your poem here captures this so well Chrissy. Hang in the struggle will be worth it.
Family (Poetry) - 3/3/2007 10:55:05 PM
Yeah, women have an extra gene, the work 24/8 gene..
But those days I push myself up off the ground
And I refuse to be weak, for Iím needed around <----That gene.
Women did get the raw deal, If I was one, I'd have a sex change..
Keep on keeping on, like only a mother can...

Wow this is just splendid. When we write exactly the way we want and how we exactly feel then we all can relate or feel it. it is always an indeed pleasure to read your poetry especially ones with so much meaning and easy to understand. Keep writing and never stop. Love Aleja Bennett.
Till Then (Poetry) - 3/1/2007 8:06:43 AM
A well written rhyme of hope and secret longing. Nice job.
Till Then (Poetry) - 3/1/2007 6:15:48 AM
A lovely poem here, truely written from the heart. In order to love, we must be best of friends first.
Till Then (Poetry) - 3/1/2007 2:45:06 AM
I think this would make an excellent song. This reminded me of going out on a limb and hoping it doesn't break. Is suppressing ones feelings healthy for the friendship?
Till Then (Poetry) - 2/28/2007 10:37:25 PM
Friendships grow, and can grow into love, like growing seedlings.
Till Then (Poetry) - 2/28/2007 10:25:25 PM

Till Then (Poetry) - 2/28/2007 6:08:00 PM
Well,an outpouring of love,I hope you get what you wish,you sure deserve being happy,Said from the heart,Good luck,
Till Then (Poetry) - 2/28/2007 5:40:34 PM
Beautiful write Chrissy, we are as humans often so fragile when it comes to matters of the heart. To commit, to say we love, to open ourselves body and soul to the idea of forever is for some the most painful thing to ask. You have barred your heart in this write and your passion glows with your sincerity, hope you will not have to wait long for your answers.
Till Then (Poetry) - 2/28/2007 5:37:57 PM
Great love poem, Crissy! I love the outpouring of the heart and then the patience in the end which the reader can sense will not last forever. Good write.
Till Then (Poetry) - 2/28/2007 5:37:33 PM
These are bittersweet sentiments, Crissy; they speak to the soul. Thank you for sharing this offering. Love and peace to you,
Autumn (Poetry) - 2/28/2007 5:34:42 PM
Very nice, Crissy. You've done a beautiful job of capturing the essence of Autumn.
The Shattered Mirror (Poetry) - 2/27/2007 5:50:53 PM
interesting write/read with power. i like the effect of the repetition. thanks and luck
The Shattered Mirror (Poetry) - 2/27/2007 1:11:00 PM
You really captured a sense of the chaos that can erupt inside with this excellent imagery of a shattered mirror. "A translucent piece of history" is such a great description, combining space and time to indicate invisibility. Great job.
The Shattered Mirror (Poetry) - 2/27/2007 12:16:42 PM
A powerful and moving poem, Crissy. Thank you for sharing it. Love and peace to you,
In The Form Of A Dollar Bill (Poetry) - 2/27/2007 4:15:45 AM
Thank you for reviewing my poem and leading me to yours. This makes my heart ache for this precious little girl that time forgot. How sad! Sally is in Jesus's arms now. Never to be hurt again. Thank you for being Sally's voice, Chrissy. We can't shout it enough. Keep writing for the children!
Blessings and Love,
The Shattered Mirror (Poetry) - 2/27/2007 4:03:19 AM
Crissy, We all have bad times in our lives where we are trying to figure out between sane and sanity,Keep looking in that mirror until your reflection is fantastic and beautiful and you'll see the real you..Your life is not crumbling away,stay positive,no negativity..
The Shattered Mirror (Poetry) - 2/27/2007 3:45:18 AM
Life may deceive but reflections do not lie.
Fragments pierce and life tends to sigh.
The Shattered Mirror (Poetry) - 2/27/2007 2:58:10 AM
Such a powerful write my friend, an inner struggle with self, present and past. Sanity! Something that we all try hard to hold onto, especially when life comes at you so fast and hard, inflicting pain, questions, and many trials! Outstanding write indeed! Loved the imagery!
The Shattered Mirror (Poetry) - 2/27/2007 2:58:03 AM
Stunning and the use of repetition in this one works really well, I can almost picture you looking into the mirror as you type this one, and the times we feel like this in our lifetimes are painful indeed but take heed that someday the mirror will be fixed and your beauty will shine....
The Shattered Mirror (Poetry) - 2/27/2007 12:15:47 AM
Sanity, holding on to sanity within there own private hell. Powerful imagery of someone losing themselves, holding on to straws, is how i read this. I like the image of the shattered mirror, you can almost feel their inner turmoil...
The Glass Bottle (Poetry) - 2/24/2007 12:43:10 PM
refreshing new read/write. thanks a lot for this display of your creativity.
Autumn (Poetry) - 2/23/2007 9:01:50 PM
Beautiful rhyme structure in this, and I love the sincerity of your poetry. I never doubt that it's from your heart.
Autumn (Poetry) - 2/23/2007 7:51:40 PM
Your poem displays well this view of one who lives like the autumn of days with leaves in disarray, very nicely penned expression of poetry...
Autumn (Poetry) - 2/23/2007 6:26:21 PM
a beautiful mood poem immersed in metaphor and meaning, Crissy ...
Autumn (Poetry) - 2/23/2007 11:40:07 AM
I love the mood that you have created in your verses, Crissy; and there is a deep meaning to this write. Thank you for sharing it. Love and peace to you,

Autumn (Poetry) - 2/21/2007 8:30:09 AM
It is always an indeed pleasure to read such splendid real work such as this one. This is well written and adqaute in everyway. Thanks for sharing this with us all here on the Den.
Autumn (Poetry) - 2/21/2007 5:18:29 AM
Excellent write, how life starts over again,Well done,
Autumn (Poetry) - 2/21/2007 4:27:41 AM
I agree with Felix the Title doesn't do the poem justice. Outstanding use and choice of words.
Autumn (Poetry) - 2/21/2007 3:33:37 AM
Good lines and impressive rythem dance this poem along from beginning to end, might consider a change of title as compared to rest it is not a good hook into an otherwise great poem.
Autumn (Poetry) - 2/21/2007 2:09:23 AM
A very nice write my friend, your imagery is wonderful in this one...a scattered life, she's fallen pray! Powerful line. Enjoyed this much!
The Glass Bottle (Poetry) - 2/20/2007 5:20:12 PM
When I feel similar to this, I stew for awhile, then finally I think about going to the Lord with my down feelings. A remedy is found in opening my Bible. I simply needed to look to God for help.
I learned a long time ago to praise Him when things are going wrong.
Like in the first chapter of the book of James, we can "count it all joy" when we have trials because the testing of our faith brings patience and other blessings.
Try it---you'll like it!
The Glass Bottle (Poetry) - 2/19/2007 10:25:49 PM
are you a genie? if i let you out do i get three wishes? ;)
seriously, a feeling we all experience occasionally ... well written ... universally themed ...
The Glass Bottle (Poetry) - 2/19/2007 8:12:02 PM
A view of one being held down or being held back...and asking for another or someone to helpto lead one out of the bottle...
nice work on this poem...
The Glass Bottle (Poetry) - 2/19/2007 6:50:16 PM
Wow, I think I'm feeling the cork's about to blow - all by itself! Wonderful poem.
The Glass Bottle (Poetry) - 2/19/2007 3:35:39 PM
A feeling that we've all felt, and if not we will. You've penned it well my friend, great write!
The Glass Bottle (Poetry) - 2/19/2007 2:06:55 PM
A most common feeling when one doesn't even want himself for a friend. Well done.
The Glass Bottle (Poetry) - 2/19/2007 8:33:09 AM
Sincere and painfully revealing. "My thoughts are dumb"- I think when being trapped there is nothing to do but look inside, which is hardly ever an appealing venture. Ambrose Bierce defined "alone" as "in bad company". Good write.
The Glass Bottle (Poetry) - 2/19/2007 7:44:20 AM
Yes Crissy, I have felt like that on occasion. Sometimes it is better to feel pain than to feel completely numb and lifeless. Thank you. Love and peace,
The Glass Bottle (Poetry) - 2/19/2007 6:18:42 AM
drowning in pure lonliness is no fun at all, can drink yourself to oblivion and end up begging for help...and if no one is listening by now, your screwed!
I love the double talk with this write...so many ways to look at it!
Andy, your a hoot!
Love and Peace~
The Glass Bottle (Poetry) - 2/19/2007 5:49:38 AM
HAHAHA, KEEP BEGGING, I'll take off the cork and if you insist........lololol
fun fun fun
The Glass Bottle (Poetry) - 2/19/2007 5:34:20 AM
You hit the nail on the head with this write,So many of us are suffering from lonliness and depression,I feel like this many day's
alone and wondering about my future,Stay positive and keep smiling ,all we can do until love comes our way are good friendships,
Great write Crissy,
The Glass Bottle (Poetry) - 2/19/2007 12:31:28 AM
Unique and origianal capture of a topic that is both real and painful and one that almost everyone has felt at one time in their lifes or another. Great work Crissy.
Felix L. Perry
The Glass Bottle (Poetry) - 2/18/2007 9:45:23 PM
Yeah, I felt this way many a time. Great poem.
Madd (Poetry) - 2/18/2007 7:06:51 PM
That was sad and this was well expressed. Drunken Drivers I lost family members to.... They hurt others not always their selves.... This was powerful work thank you for being a VOICE.
Madd (Poetry) - 2/17/2007 8:53:04 PM
ugh, sad. i think punishment is too lenient for these killers. good read and a 'thought' piece. thanks for sharing
Madd (Poetry) - 2/17/2007 6:07:11 AM
Very touching and emotional write my friend...Stay strong, you are a wonderful writer Crissy and have much to offer others. Mothers against drunk drivers...such a worthy cause. Several years ago I was hit head on by a drunk driver who ran! I had numerous minor injuries, my daughter was very blessed and only recieved a few minor cuts and bruises...my car was totaled...and this person didn't care, because she ran and never looked back. I got really MAD about the fact that they ran leaving me and my daughter in the middle of the highway not knowing if we were dead or alive. I decided to do something about it...I gathered debree from the car that had hit me, so I knew the color, and from scattered parts, we discoverd the make and model. I then alerted everyone that I knew and ask them to tell more, we had postal carriers, truck drivers, bus drivers, UPS carriers, car lots, bag boys, drive through cashiers, anyone that we could think of looking for this particular car...and guess what! Living in a small town as I do, a week later the car was discovered at a pawn shop, I got the plate number called the clerks office revealed the owner and got a warrant, she was jailed, and as it turned out she had been drunk, on pain pills, no insurance, nothing...I did get my car repaired. Many told me that it was a waste of time and effort, I didn't see it this way...I saw it as taking a stand for what I believe in! I also thought that it might help in saving a life! You go girl stand up for what is right! I pray that love peace and comfort come your way!
Madd (Poetry) - 2/16/2007 10:11:17 AM
This depicts the stark "injustice" of such happenings, Crissy. Love and peace to you,
Madd (Poetry) - 2/16/2007 7:40:06 AM
So sad heart breaking for your loss. Very touching and full of truth my heart goes out to you for your loss.
Madd (Poetry) - 2/16/2007 6:17:36 AM
Crissy, This is so sad,my hearts breaking for you even though it's been awhile I know it's tough,A touching write my friend,
A loss that shouldn't have happened,Take care and stay positive,
At christmas I wrote a poem called "Just One More"..I was told to send it in to M.A.D.D..Mayber I will..
Madd (Poetry) - 2/16/2007 5:52:50 AM
Oh blimey, I sorry for your pain and angst, it must be hell.
You have so much love to focus on your children.
It is a bloody shame, I pray you find peace and inner strength...
Madd (Poetry) - 2/16/2007 5:09:50 AM
I'm so sorry for your loss. Such an unjustified and needless waste of a beautiful life. Bless You on your day of sorrow.
Madd (Poetry) - 2/16/2007 5:06:40 AM
This is heart breaking to hear of, and many lives are cut way too short because of the lack of concern and mere stupidity of others! "Oh, it will never happen to me!", or "I'm fine, I can drive", "...a cab?, I DONT need a cab!" and off they go, some taking even their own lives, others taking others lives, away from their children and families...MADD is right, damn MADD!
Crissy, you are one of the reasons she lived, you are still the one reasoning, in her death... by standing up for its cause and giving her a voice! I commend your efforts!
Love and Peace~
Madd (Poetry) - 2/15/2007 9:05:36 PM
Where is justice or is it just as blind as a drunken driver killer? Sorry from my heart for your loss.
Madd (Poetry) - 2/15/2007 9:03:12 PM
So profound this is. I think the 'm' should stand for 'Murderers'
Murder is committed by drunk drivers.
Thanks for sharing.
Madd (Poetry) - 2/15/2007 8:52:14 PM
How sad...and mostly how sad that one can live viewing the past of a loving memory and another walks with the escape of guilt of his own creation....
sad poem.....Art Sun...
Madd (Poetry) - 2/15/2007 7:15:44 PM
Wow, that's heartwrenching, Crissy. Needless to say, travesty.
Immortality (Poetry) - 2/14/2007 8:12:53 PM
Enjoyed this write, though perhaps on a defferent level than interpereted by some previous reviewers...no babies here. ('cept me) The only cries I hear in the night are from coyotes. Its hard for me ( a shallow guy :)to describe the feeling I get reading this, I have to say I love the introspective quality of this write.
Immortality (Poetry) - 2/14/2007 5:24:00 AM
My Nephew is eleven months old and it's the most amazing experience I have ever had!'
