Bravo, bravo, bravo
Take a dozen roses and a standing ovation for this play Deborah. As an old sailor and lover of the sea and stories of history past I truly enjoyed this write. With a perfect blend of drama, humour, and history and stunning characters it kept me enthralled from beginning to end.

VENIAL (Poetry) - 6/26/2011 9:43:00 AM
Love the diabolical cadence of this. Am not sure of all the metaphors, but they sure are dark and deep enough to give me thinking who this devil is and what her blood is worth.

"the two opposing lost their might
futile to scream their battles cries
one winning as the other dies"
Well written; sultry and revealing with emotions bare...one winning...

I found myself strangely dizzy here- or maybe it wasn't here...but a memory.
Memories & Make-up (Poetry) - 2/2/2011 3:08:06 PM
Brilliant twists and turns to this tender piece ~
The Clock (Poetry) - 5/2/2010 2:09:25 PM
Hi Deborah, We met at at the department store one Saturday, and I have greatly enjoyed your writings.., especially "The Clock. Some of these writings you've poured your GUT PAIN into it.., "Sane Madness." Nevertheless it's very good work! Thanks to you I am now a registered Authors Den member. I look forward to reading more of your work and hearing your stories.
The Clock (Poetry) - 7/31/2009 7:44:18 AM
Congratulations are in order.There are so few things we have in common at a younger age,then realize years later.I think the idea
of suffering for your art is a tortuous predisposition.Where love
truly exists,whether for person or purpose...is often entangled.I like this more than I should.
Stained (Poetry) - 2/6/2008 11:09:33 AM
A brilliantly allegorical excoriation of the exogenous exoteric levels of human emoting, notwithstanding the fact that I am myself much reminded of several invasively exenterate liaisons which involved the painful curettage of my XY CNS neural conductive fibres by elegantly becoming persons of the XX persuasion. [By means of a perhaps frusty but absolutely irrelevant (I assure you) homologous paraphrase, that is to say this poem is redolent with meaningfully sonorous echoes of past experiential angst: it IS cuspidatious!] Mahalo for sharing it, Kalikiano (who neva wen take himsef da kine choke serious, sistah, LoL....)

Very visual indeed. Good work, I enjoyed reading this.
stay well and keep writing
Unhinged (Poetry) - 1/17/2008 12:36:31 PM
I love the language and layers of meaning. One to read and read again.
Tango (Poetry) - 1/17/2008 12:30:39 PM
mmm nice words. Memorable imagery.
Unhinged (Poetry) - 1/16/2008 12:55:01 PM
Beautiful expression, Deborah
Intellectual Thicket (Poetry) - 1/14/2008 6:25:40 PM
Moving and interesting tale....
Intellectual Thicket (Poetry) - 1/13/2008 11:23:51 AM
Quick paced and full of life literary lesson on the way the poet's dwell.
Chalkboard (Poetry) - 1/7/2008 9:40:43 PM
Even in poetry the world is a black and white expression of thought...
Chalkboard (Poetry) - 1/4/2008 1:30:57 PM
Well said and so artfully crafted....
Chalkboard (Poetry) - 1/4/2008 4:59:22 AM
To capture the innocence of a child's wonder and worry and deliver it in such a simple yet eloquent story that unwinds like the surf hitting the shore is beautiful... lovely write indeed and could picture the scene fully in my mind.
Chalkboard (Poetry) - 1/3/2008 9:38:55 PM
Old fashioned poetry never, ever, ever, ever ceases to render it's readers speechless. Absolutely brilliant here, Deborah. I love the philosophical thought process behind this; as I could definitely see there was indeed a very strong notion that initiated these words. Needless to say, your style of penning complements the thought. Bravo! :)
Chalkboard (Poetry) - 1/3/2008 6:38:52 PM
Indeed. And "life" goes on. This gives me pause for thought, Deborah. Thank you. Love and peace to you,
Be Happy (Poetry) - 12/9/2007 10:18:02 AM
Reminds me of the song, "Don't worry be happy!" by Shaggy back in the days. I'd say that you're grandfather was a wise man and knew that the fountain of youth was enjoying your life. His words a short and sweet and your poem keeps his great spirit alive.
Wet Relic (Poetry) - 12/5/2007 10:23:07 AM
I enjoy how this one allows the reader to reap the value of looking through the poets words into their own lives and making the analogies that they choose...I have tasted life and found it wanting.
Tuff (Poetry) - 12/5/2007 10:21:13 AM
I love the blusey cadence of this lyrical poem, as a guitar strummer and singer myself it is easy to see the world when looking out over humanity. Great write.
Vacuous (Poetry) - 12/4/2007 8:44:47 PM
Interesting analogies presented here and as I lingered on the line "safety in schools" I thought to myself how true this is, we all do it...look for the crowd to blend or at least hope for back up in a world that could and often rejects the inordinary. Well done enjoyed this one Deborah.
Hues (Poetry) - 11/18/2007 1:38:29 PM
I have read some of your poems and this one is my favorite so far.
The last three lines are quite strong and bear universal meaning.
Empty (Poetry) - 11/5/2007 8:56:25 AM
Very Deep and Very Sad!!!!
Empty (Poetry) - 10/10/2007 7:54:52 PM
Nice offering of expression, keep poetry alive!
Empty (Poetry) - 10/10/2007 3:53:52 PM
Like any bad thing. Be it a sore or temptation, the more you scratch the more one has to appease the itch...
Sane Madness (Poetry) - 10/1/2007 8:07:13 PM
Interesting piece of work here...raw, in-your-face emotion blended with a subtle sadness...cynicism balanced by determination and hope...I am glad I had the chance to drop in here tonight and read this work of yours. I will be back to read you more as time permits.
This is good work.
Sane Madness (Poetry) - 9/30/2007 3:23:46 PM
Interesting...one would have to say that the superficial reality of life tends to bring one into the sanity of insanity, there is always a way to fing the wish of your concern...maybe within the forever of soon to be never...
Love and life go hand in hand, it just takes forever to find it's true meaning...
a nice work...your thoughts show depth of emotion and truth of reality...and I have yet to find those expiration dates....except on my credit cards and id's...lol...
Chrysalis Burst (Poetry) - 9/8/2007 8:46:45 PM
Another great write Deborah that probes and picks at your pain and offers the agony you feel up to us almost like a penance to share with your fellow writers alone. Strong write dear friend.
Be Happy (Poetry) - 9/8/2007 8:41:51 PM
Marvellous string of stanzas that awakes the senses to the different word images and messages you weave together in this poetic tapestry. As an old salt I truly enjoyed.
Be Happy (Poetry) - 9/8/2007 8:05:53 PM
Reminds me of visits to the cemetary. Remembering, trying to be strong, and not wanting pity.
Much to think about,
Be Happy (Poetry) - 9/8/2007 6:22:19 PM
Well written and very interesting piece. You pose so much wonder and keep the interest of the reader. Nice work....
The Clock (Poetry) - 9/7/2007 1:05:19 PM
Excellant write with a moral or platitude that shows all too well that life is just too dam short.
Crooked Finger (Poetry) - 9/7/2007 1:03:56 PM
Dark and brooding but strong and heartfelt...can feel a lot of pain and bitter dissappointment in this one. Very good.

A wedding made in? enjoyed
Wax Diamond (Poetry) - 8/1/2007 5:45:22 AM

Very nice imagery and evocative words.
Delicous Fear (Poetry) - 7/31/2007 10:07:53 PM
Interestingly exposed...you write of two views within a life...very nicely penned, one must truly read in depth to see your thoughts within poem...
Delicous Fear (Poetry) - 7/26/2007 10:39:17 AM
Lets people think. Vey nice! Thank you. Truth be True-Lyndsey
Avidly Refered (Poetry) - 7/25/2007 8:31:24 PM

Well done and a little closer to the edge than I like to travel through life, voluntarily!

Courage (Poetry) - 7/23/2007 3:30:13 AM
Love the way you unfolded this one layer for layer with each line and the finale with the last line is stunning.
Delicous Fear (Poetry) - 7/20/2007 2:18:59 PM
Why indeed, Deborah? You give one pause for thought with your verses here. Thank you. Love and best wishes to you,
Stained (Poetry) - 7/14/2007 10:20:30 AM
Again, this is powerfully emotive and meaningful. It stirs the soul, Deborah. Thank you. Best wishes to you,
Unhinged (Poetry) - 7/14/2007 10:18:57 AM
This poem is worthy of much more than a single reading; and the photo is most complementary to the verses. Thank you for sharing this offering, Deborah. Love and peace to you,
Tango (Poetry) - 7/14/2007 10:17:11 AM
I do love the comparison that you have drawn within your verses, Deborah. Thanks for sharing. Love and peace,
September 13 (Poetry) - 7/14/2007 10:15:46 AM
A compelling poem, Deborah. I was born on the 13th so I figure I am "imune" to anything negative about it (LOL). Thank you. Best wishes to you,
Sane Madness (Poetry) - 7/14/2007 10:13:32 AM
An expressive and emotive rant, Deborah. Love and peace to you,
Courage (Poetry) - 7/14/2007 10:11:46 AM
The pessimist makes the world a happier place because she can make mocking music of its terrors
I find your poem very thought-eliciting, Deborah. I do like the way you express yourself via your verses. Do you mean "champagne" in the last verse or are you referring to the city and/or county of "Champaign?" Thank you once again for provoking thought. Love and peace to you,
Hues (Poetry) - 7/14/2007 10:08:19 AM
Symbolic and powerfully meaningful; truly I feel that I can relate to these emotive sentiments, Deborah. Thank you for sharing this offering. Welcome to AD. Love and peace to you,
September 13 (Poetry) - 7/14/2007 9:26:27 AM
Fear of the number 13, poignantly penned--I, too, like this one. Yes. Very much. We've all been there, eh? I have.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
September 13 (Poetry) - 7/14/2007 7:15:59 AM
Your poetry is so full of expression. I really like this.

Excellent work and artistically crafted.

Aptly named. I can dig it.**
September 13 (Poetry) - 7/13/2007 6:41:44 PM
Nice work! This will most definitly keep poetry breathing and alive!!!
September 13 (Poetry) - 7/13/2007 6:17:21 PM
Cheers! Are hear some artists write quite well when...
Tango (Poetry) - 7/13/2007 12:16:43 PM
last tango in paris was a great movie and it was certainly about desire. nice poem
Unhinged (Poetry) - 7/11/2007 8:09:48 PM
I found this to be an intriguing piece...especially when combined with the art....the art is softly sensual...erotic even...the verse raggedly sharp...especially that beautiful and dynamic ending couplet.
The layers of meaning here are varied, which I find to be a benchmark for good verse.
It leaves questions in the mind.
Splendid work Deborah...Welcome to the den. I will be looking forward to more of your work.
