Oh, that can't sleep at night thing--it sure makes for tired mornings, but the peace of having another poem to share! I enjoyed this little banter on writing.
Poetic Poetry (Poetry) - 4/27/2011 10:48:39 PM
I think you nailed it. As you commented, poetry can express the whole spectrum of human emotions and leave a legacy of who you are. Just let your heart and mind do the writing.
I Just Tell My God (Poetry) - 4/27/2011 10:37:38 PM
You have a support system in others, but be selective who you tell your heartfelt information. It make those close to you feel good to be able to offer you comfort and a sense of fulfilment to help ease your pain and agony. God always knows ....but humans can only wonder.

Tears through the Experiences (Poetry) - 4/8/2011 8:35:45 PM
LuLu, there are many that share this common problem. They're looking for things in life to bring them happiness or completion, but only using part of what God gave them. Looking through your heart is not enough to find fulfilment, you must be smart and allow your intelligence to go along with that ride. The combination of brain and heart set boundaries and standards that help to achieve greatness and or reduce the damage that can be done. A message that needs to be said. Thanks you.

Shattered Childhood (Poetry) - 8/24/2010 2:13:41 PM
I can relate....BIG time! And I'm so glad you have the courage to share your experience. I think many of us slip into denial and THINK we had great childhoods when we didn't really. You are facing yours and this is a good healing thing. I hope you keep writing it out. . . Please read my poem "Child I Used to Be" and let me know if it touches a cord.
I Just Tell My God (Poetry) - 8/24/2010 2:08:29 PM
To answer your question. . .I also tell my fellow human beings because I feel that God put us here on Earth together so that we can support each other through the tough times as well as all else. When I share my painful experiences it helps to validate others and also gives them an opportunity to open their hearts and be there for me. And visa versa. There is nothing like a hug from the heart of an understanding fellow human being. We all need that, no matter how much we also talk with God.

A Dying Love (Poetry) - 2/26/2009 12:23:50 PM
L- this read a somber feel in the words and as the reader is conveying the lines in the short narrative and the verse to go with the plot...
Dear Children (Poetry) - 2/23/2009 9:36:40 AM
This poem is one that truly tells what it is like about loosing a child through abortion. Even though I am a male, I can fell the trauma of the one losing the child and the pain of never seeing life outside the womb. Very heartfelt as I share all those unborn children pain.

What a compelling piece of work! To die at the hands of the one you love and yet love just the same! What a Christlike attitude.

This is one poem that is worth reading again and again.
You are too blessed to be stressed!
The Story of Truth (Poetry) - 5/31/2008 6:19:25 PM
The Master teacher said I quote ' know the truth and the truth will set you free. Although the truth took Jesus Christ to Calvary: we now can overcome this world with the truth and the doorway to eternal life will open to us. My dear sister Louise continue to live in Christ's resurrection power and the truth will take you to worlds unknown. Peace!!!
A Dying Love (Poetry) - 4/29/2008 7:25:06 AM
Truth about love, you said it... Just because we are no longer together does not mean I no longer love you. I like this one.
Shattered Childhood (Poetry) - 4/3/2008 7:23:02 AM
Very thought provoking and real poetry. My life too has no been a bed of roses. My heart goes out to the one this poem sings about...but in this poem...the young girl..now woman...must realize that life is full of lessons and experiences..although...some of no consequence of our own...are merely events to make us stronger, wiser, more compassionate of others and solid teachers in life. May the lessons make you rich and able to give to the world more love...always remembering to reach out and help another soul.
At the Beach (Poetry) - 4/3/2008 7:18:00 AM
Both of your poems are very nicely written and expressive of your level of consciousness at each time in your life. I like the one written at age 35 better...because it seems to reveal the growth in yourself and your natural talent. Very well penned and thought provoking peice. There is much comfort in nature. Many blessing to you and much success.
At the Beach (Poetry) - 3/29/2008 10:07:00 AM
I experience the same calm at beaches or large bodies of water. I think we become closer to the creator and detached from the world around us and you Louise knew that a fourteen years of age. In that same stillness we become one with God! Peace!!!
Dear Children (Poetry) - 3/29/2008 9:59:13 AM
You are forgiven so keep on living and I thank God for sending you to us. I don't know the pain that you were in but I share in your resurrected joy! Peace!!!

DON'T BE LONELY--THERE'S ALWAYS SOMEONE!
A Dying Love (Poetry) - 3/27/2008 9:33:42 AM
Love is eternal and you died for it, love is the greatest force in the universe. And because you died love lives and permeates heaven, sky, and earth, while challanging each of us to be immersed in it! An
inspiring piece Louise. Peace!!!
At the Beach (Poetry) - 3/23/2008 1:32:26 PM
Nice work Louise...I feel that both poems are a blend together that reaches upon each other...the youth of innocence and the age of experience....one cannot separate either for as you have incorporated two thoughts they are now one...only time has found them at the beach within thoughts of seashells...
truly nice work...
enjoyed, Art Sun...
Dear Children (Poetry) - 3/13/2008 8:42:33 PM
Wow, I felt really sad for you when reading this. I am an abortion survivor and have gone through post-abortion syndrome, and hearing this made me remember the pain I went through before dealing with the after effects. I went to confession with an amazing priest and he really made me see things in a different way about forgiveness, forgiving myself as God has mercy on us. The healing is a rough road, and sadly, not everyone gets the help they need, and people on the outside looking in have no clue what we go through. Two great organizations are "I regret my abortion" which Martin Luther King Jr.'s daughter started and "Rachel's Vineyard," both very helpful. If you ever need to chat, feel free to send me a message. God Bless you, Michelle xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Shattered Childhood (Poetry) - 3/13/2008 4:06:32 AM
There are so many tragic events that pass through the lives of many, yours gives us the reality of truth from the perpective of exposure to heal one's own heart and soul. We can only reflect without actually feeling but with emotion of mind, respectfully your strength is your character that has brought you to be able to express and accept the past.
Shattered Childhood (Poetry) - 3/12/2008 9:11:27 PM
Lulu, this piece really give a sense a childhood scar that's pretty deep. Someone needs to tell that child that they were not the cause of that situation and to tell the adult to stop picking that scab on that scar. Childhood is so precious, as a child you just don't understand a of things and see yourself as the cause rather than the victim. As an adult you're bitter to learn that you were a victim but a healing process is in order. It time to have your second childhood, go play. This is painful anf powerful, I know the whole story has yet to be told and I'm sure that will be in one of your books, I looking forward to reading it.
Dear Children (Poetry) - 3/11/2008 2:43:08 AM
Heartbreaking write, Louise; brava! Powerfully penned; I am so sorry!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :( >tears! <
Dear Children (Poetry) - 3/11/2008 12:04:14 AM
Reading this poem, I'm sure, had to touch a lot of people. Those who have been or currently going through a similar situation. It makes you think... but even more so..... it makes you feel. You feel the sadness, the regret, the anxiety that goes through a mother's mind. The emotions you stir may prevent this from happening to future potential mothers, it's quite a bit of luggage to carry through your life. There is another story to be told here, from the dad's point of view. Not all men are cold and callous when it come this, they may not lay on the table but they too share some of the pain, sadness and regret. You deeply displayed and touched an emotion. Very Good. Job Well Done.
Dear Children (Poetry) - 3/10/2008 3:25:30 PM
So sad...at least you admit to past mistakes...may God bless you.
Dear Children (Poetry) - 3/10/2008 1:00:27 PM
Oh God, as my eyes well up in tears, your words are filled with such pain and longing, as if looking for forgiveness, but forgiveness come from within......
Be always safe,
At the Beach (Poetry) - 2/29/2008 6:19:41 PM
I love your poem at 35 because you used more imagery, feelings and details...
At the Beach (Poetry) - 1/22/2008 6:49:20 AM
Both are great. It's hard to choose it's sort of like picking between fried chicken or pork chops. Both are crazy tasty! I like the one at thirty five because the poem has grown and fermented like wine. Seems as though time has made the emotion deeper and more detailed through your writing. Take for instance the whole thing with you walking in the sand. At 14 you say walking barefeet in the sand whereas at age 35 you mention the the hands and feet. Also the sand seems clinched between the toes as if you're wanting to hold someone badly. However, the poem at 14 could be the outright winner because it was the precedent for this emotion of wanting to love and desire another. I like the tension most here in the pain leaving with the wind but still the breeze coming back. It gives you that whole balance of love and pain perfectly. You outdid yourself both times. So take a bow sista! Thanks for your wonderful comments on my pieces as well and hope you have a blessed & ghetto fabulous day!

The one at 14 is so pure and serene...interesting how perceptions evolve with age...at 35, you can tell the difference. At 14 it was care-free, at 35 it was wanting to belong
A Dying Love (Poetry) - 12/30/2007 4:27:41 AM
So sad, and beautiful and true
A Dying Love (Poetry) - 12/20/2007 1:46:00 AM
You have expressed how love can be so tramatizing and so tragic with this poem. Love is powerful and sometimes you can't help loving some people even though you know they are not good for you. You also send the message that one must focus on giving love to the right people in life, the deserving and those that will shares it in a recipocal manner. Keep the passion going, love needs to be heard from all sides. Keep it coming.
A Dying Love (Poetry) - 11/16/2007 6:27:21 AM
Very nice work..
love can see beyond ...Worlds...
A Dying Love (Poetry) - 11/5/2007 8:56:05 AM
Whew! Talk about good! I like the tension in this piece. The poem is called, "A Dying Love" but the flipside of that is that in the end your love never really died it lived on eventhough you were alone. That's Powerl & Keep doing your thing sistagyrl!
A Dying Love (Poetry) - 5/17/2007 7:34:04 AM

Through God the truth is always heard. Very emotional pen, that reveals the battles we all must face.
At the Beach (Poetry) - 4/30/2007 11:20:11 AM
Thanks for your comments. At 14, seeing myself half- grown looking for love with eyes wide open and hoping that my Adam would find me, I'm still waiting, but not so innocent. I have evolved with more depth as well, but I must say reading your comments about the second poem, I don't feel the pain. Your comments about the metaphors being lovely and original touches my inner child's soul.
Thank you for seeing past the pain and bring my attention back to my thoughts going with the wind and there goes a breeze, because that's how I want to live...happy and hopeful, inspite of the pain.
At the Beach (Poetry) - 4/26/2007 7:47:47 AM
I think the first poem at 14 is wonderfully innocent and soft; yet I believe the second has evolved with more depth and the metaphors are lovely and original: "my thoughts go with the wind", "there goes a breeze!"
