Only a Game (Book) - 8/3/2006 10:30:06 AM|
Yes, this subject reminds those who are wary of such things to look away from the power playing demons, and to concentrate on the progress of one's own interests, independently of the family troublemakers and their past, and with confidence in our future endeavors.

This fantastic author has written a nail-biter, on the edge of your seat, and definitely a page turner. This is a must read that easily
can be a book-made-for-movie.
Only a Game (Book) - 6/22/2004 6:27:55 AM
The passage left me wanting more to read with this one. Sherry Gibson has some real skill at writing horror and this is the kind of story that is a must read for families who have someone diagnosed with a mental illness. It is a dark subject and one of those stories that can happen. I am planning to pick up a copy of this book next month when I get paid again. This is a book that will give Stephen King's work a run for his money and by someone who is actually a veteran. I don't know how long she's been at it now but she just chokeslammed a few established writers out there with this one.

Sherry, Only A Game is a great book. I couldn't put it away, until I finished it. Then when I did finish it, I wished there was more to read. Keep up the good work. Also, I'm glad you are trying to increase the public's awareness of Lupus.

Terror at it's finest! Under your nose, in a place that should be safe and secure. There are some games that you just don't want to play . . . Don't miss this one!
Only a Game (Book) - 6/11/2003 3:57:13 PM
I read only the first chapter, and can't wait until I get my own copy! I had goosebumps from reading it. Great job, Sherry.

Interesting read Recommended 4.5 stars
Writer Gibson has crafted an absorbing page turner sure to draw the reader into the tale and hold them fast from the opening lines to the last. If I had to give a one word review of Only a Game that word would be B-r-r-r-r-r. This is not a book for a dark and stormy night when you are home alone. Read Only a Game in the middle of a sunny day, with the lights on.
Well done, happy to recommend.

Whew! What opens as such a peaceful, ordinary scene so quickly turns into a chilling, frightening, episode that hooks you right away. This has the promise of one heck of a scary story. This is a book that one can't put down... a page turner for sure. Definitely on my "A" list to reside in my library.

Clayton Moore: The Lone Ranger (Short Story) - 1/11/2011 12:20:51 PM
For many years I had made attempts to contact one of the most influential "personas" of my childhood, but unfortunately, my connection with the Lone Ranger never happend. This being said, Sherry's short story gave me a comfort and sort of closure concerning my personal pursuit to meet with the late great Clayton Moore: The Lone Ranger. In Sherry's story, she reveals her struggle with personal identity, who is she?, her personal anguish with who she was as a person, not just Bill's wife, or mother of his children: she was withdrawn, an invert, a woman who did not understand her own reality as a person.
Clayton Moore hit a cord with Sherry, and she was uncomfortable with this as "The Lone Ranger" was able to "unmask" the beauty within Sherry! I have been searching for my own way back to "me" as I have had my own personal struggle with identity and in not ever meeting my childhood hero, but through this story, Sherry has given me a way to "learn my way back" and the ability to share myself with others in a way I have longed for, but could not have known.
Sherry L Gibson, thank you so much for sharing this witm me and others who have read your story, I honestly have a chance to have a second chance to be me.
God bless you and your family, always-Ernie
"...now I know...the rest...of the story"

Clayton Moore: The Lone Ranger (Short Story) - 12/9/2004 8:28:06 PM
An inspirational story with a valuable lesson. I too grew up watching the Lone Ranger, and reading the novels by Fran Striker. The masked man has always been a favorite of mine. Thank you for making the man behind the mask as real to me.
Her Last Visit (Short Story) - 11/15/2004 8:19:27 PM
I just came across this story, quite by accident and had to commend you for the way you carried this story forward in such a natural way. The dialogue was honest & heartfelt, the love felt for Janet bettween Sara & her Mom flowed easily, the characters believable & the pacing was perfect as you drew your readers to such a wonderful feel good ending! A fine piece of writing & thank you for sharing this piece with me tonight!
Clayton Moore: The Lone Ranger (Short Story) - 8/30/2004 7:43:42 AM
What an enjoyable read - The Lone Ranger was a hero to many a TV viewer, as was his faithful Indian companion, Tonto ... kudos to you on this finely-written piece!
Clayton Moore: The Lone Ranger (Short Story) - 8/20/2004 4:26:55 AM
Sherry, What a wonderful story!!! I don't think I ever missed an episode of The Lone Ranger... and you brought back so many wonderful memories for me. That golden deep voice has always mesmerized me. Great Write!!!
Clayton Moore: The Lone Ranger (Short Story) - 8/14/2004 11:18:26 AM
SHERRY - Terrific Story! Thank you for sharing!
Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels - Two of my greatest Heroes also!
Long before the Saturday morning TV shows, The Lone Ranger was on RADIO! The announcer used to say: "A cloud of dust, (a speeding horse ? unsure ?), and a hearty 'Hi-Yo Silver'- The Lone Ranger rides again! Let us return to those thrilling days of yesteryear! . . ."
My God! What absolutely fabulous adventures! "Who WAS that Masked Man?" Besides "Get-um Up Scout" Jay always used to say: "Kemo Sabe" - and now 50 years or so later, I don't remember what it meant! But, I want to say - "One who KNOWS" ??? Perhaps another reader, with better grey cells, can tell us?
Looking back now, and remembering, Clayton's voice was perhaps the greatest recognizable one, for many many years. I would put it WAY up there with William Boyd "Hopalong Cassidy"and Orson Wells, and even the magnificent James Earle Jones!
Jay and Clay were "sidekicks" long before Gene Autry and Pat Buttram, or Roy Rogers and Gabby Hayes, and then Andy Devine !!! What wonderful heroes we had! And guess what? They were always so "good" with their "Six-Shooters" that they could knock the guns out of their hands - and not KILL anyone! Quite a difference from today's violence, huh?
For Clayton to take the time to share his personal wisdom with you, as well as to persist until he got an answer from you, was most becoming of a True Hero! For you to LEARN from him, and pass on to us, such a heartfelt and heart-warming story makes me want to say:
"Hi-Yo SHERRY" If there was a "Silver Bullet" AWARD - you got my vote!
Clayton Moore: The Lone Ranger (Short Story) - 1/17/2004 7:06:29 AM
After I read your poem, I glanced over and saw the article title and had to read it. My Saturdays as a kid were always reserved for The Lone Ranger and Tonto. Your article reminded me just how marvelous both men really were. Thanks!
Clayton Moore: The Lone Ranger (Short Story) - 11/6/2003 5:14:48 PM
What a wonderful story and what wonderful wisdom. I guess the Lone Ranger wasn't so alone after all. You can't learn life like that all alone. Thanks for sharing the story. Nice.

How many times did you use his name in this writing???
I know nothing about writing but I sure know who CLayton Moore is now.

Sherry, Dear Sprite,
It's so interesting that so many of us have similar experiences but science still insists it's all in our heads. But then, we all know the experts are always right.
Keep your spirit soaring, Sherry!
Clayton Moore: The Lone Ranger (Short Story) - 12/23/2002 9:40:19 PM
Sparkling Sherry, how you shimmer and with such a lovely light! How fitting that two spirits, shaped so alike should meet in mid0air and on solid ground.
Oh, how right he was.
Love you, love your work!

I don't know who Bill is but I know who you are and the Lone Ranger saw the same thing I am seeing now. A very gentle loving soul. Thank you this story is an inspiration to me and a reminder of a path I have chosen.
Clayton Moore: The Lone Ranger (Short Story) - 12/19/2002 2:56:58 PM
This was an awsome story. I would never have guessed you would have had such a wonderful experience in meeting him. I would also never have guessed you would have felt so out of place; as I remembered, you always seemed to be so positive, good natured, and proud. You wrote this in a really touching way. I enjoyed it. I had been told about that day by my daughter and your niece, Kristin, who had told it from her view point as a young child. She was so excited to meet him, get her picture taken with him, and even ride in his limosine to McDonalds. Two different meaningful memories of the same day, very nice.
Clayton Moore: The Lone Ranger (Short Story) - 12/17/2002 5:35:45 PM
As I read that article I was drawn back to that day as a kid. I don't guess I realized everything that was going on but I do remember that he was a really nice guy. I remember eating fried chicken with the lone ranger....hmmmmm bet not everone can say that. Great read Mom.

What an amazing story. I wish it was longer. Clayton Moore saw the beauty in you and I see the beauty in you thru your poems and stories. Keep up the great writing, Sherry.
Clayton Moore: The Lone Ranger (Short Story) - 12/11/2002 6:18:23 PM
Such a wonderful true life story about meeting Clayton Moore! Two spirits connected in a way that changed each of your lives for the better. And it showed he was not just a famous actor, but a human being who had such a deep incite into life and what makes a person beautiful....what is inside and not just the outer appearance. Thanks for sharing Sherry!

An informative and well written article, Sherry. You have given something of yourself to others. Oh, you might want to fix the title and hit "update." You have and "s" where you need a "c." My wife accuses me of editing things to death, so pay no attention to me. Best wishes.
I Need a Wife (Article) - 8/13/2008 9:39:07 AM
When I worked full-time, I expressed the same sentiment. I need a wife! Interesting enough is that Proverbs 31, describes a wife who not only took care of her family, but worked outside the home (dealing in sales, real estate.) Her price is far above rubies!
I Need a Wife (Article) - 6/10/2008 9:49:52 AM
Excellent write and oh so true~"I Need a Wife"
Loved this write down to every minute detail, Sherry you hit all the right spots with this down to "If I had a wife, I could tell her when my medicine bottle was getting low and she would make sure I did not run out of important medication. If I did run out, I could call her to discuss it with her and remind her that sheís home all day and could look at those bottles to see if they needed refilling!" isn't that the truth...sounds like a case for the ole fashioned "Hazel" if you remember her?
Heeeheee all the best and good luck in your quest~smile,
ps...maybe she could visit around and help all of us women writer's so that we can just create, create, create all day. ((( SMILE )))
I Need a Wife (Article) - 3/7/2008 7:58:48 AM
A most amusing and pungent reflection! This makes me recall my own wife's tender ministrations when I was recently suffering from the effects of the flu. Men somehow grow into the habit of unconsciously relying upon their SO to take care of all those 'little' (Read: Everest sized) domestic concerns that either fall below their radar or tend to be considered 'beneath their elevated station' in marital life. When the tables turn (and it's wifie who is sick, or otherwise temporarily incapacitated) this usually precipitates a minor chaotic domestic crisis in terms of household continuities, for most married men. By the way, Ms. Sawyer's comments (in response to this status quo) are particularly salient. I wouldn't disagree with some who have suggested that any man who thinks being a 'housewife' isn't a full time job should promptly be handed over to the Ubangis in Africa, who bury their captives up to their necks in sand near an ant hill and pour honey over them...

I Need a Wife (Article) - 2/15/2008 11:52:29 AM
This is what you do: (God forbid!) - You separate for several years. (We did -- divorced, then remarried three years later.) Then, the hubby realizes that he has to do all these things by himself! He goes into action and gets more attentive to what his needs are for survival. Now, be as it may, he will be sloppy when he is by himself,... alas. But, when he finally decides to come around again, once you've decided it's been enough time for 'the lesson' - lol - he will be far more aware of the two-some act. He will respect you!
Thank God, mine does laundry, cleans, cooks, (I do most of it.) He takes me places. I do bills. - but that's about it. Then again, I stay at home!
I Need a Wife (Article) - 2/14/2008 3:27:27 PM
I've often thought a wife in our home would be a welcome addition, but I don't want to share the nights - only the work. LOL You know, the day-to-day stuff that needs to get done ... leaving me time for me and him.
God bless you. Kathy
I Need a Wife (Article) - 1/19/2008 12:59:19 PM

At 57 I can relate. Good thing I can't run as fast anymore so catching up should take longer.
I Need a Wife (Article) - 5/24/2005 4:23:39 PM
So do I. My ex said this to me once as an insult when we were both working, "We need a wife." Well, I still need one. I don't think some men realize what a blessing it is to have someone else take care of them and the details of daily living. I went through a brief period when all I had to do was concentrate on a job and everything else was done for me. Honestly, it was a breeze. Interestingly, in my marriage, when my health deteriorated and I could not be as much of a wife as far as chores go, my husband decided he deserved "better." I guess having a wife has great benefits because he's found someone and wants to remarry. Uh, not me...the benefits get a little fuzzy from my perspective, but I'm sure in a loving relationship, they're fantastic. ;-) Great article, Sherry.
I Need a Wife (Article) - 5/24/2005 3:18:21 PM
Oh this is so true and I do understand after taking an early retirement I have turned into a wife myself it feels like sometimes. I get up to drive my o/h to work, make the beds, do the dishes, look after her mother who lives with us, babysit the grandchildren when they need me, do the grocery shoppin, do the yard work, cook the supper, pick up the o/h from work....hmmmmnnn maybe I need another wife lol
Elusvie Old Age (Article) - 5/17/2005 10:15:50 AM
A treat, as I, too, draw nearer to the close of my fourth decade, and that in a society that worships youth. What wisdom and treasure we miss that way! With age, our eyes become clearer, or should, and we begin to see the transcience of beauty, the many forms it takes, no less beautiful (perhaps even more so) as it metamorphosizes into another type of beauty. Thank you for your contribution.
Elusvie Old Age (Article) - 5/13/2005 7:47:50 PM

Why Do I Write Poetry (Article) - 3/9/2005 3:53:10 PM
i don't know why i write, but karla, my twin, started before i did; and i just sort of followed behind. writing has both helped us open up and heal, and we feel better about ourselves (MOST of the time). writing allows us to explore the deepest depths of our emotional selves, and we write of things that we can't express by way of mouth. God gave us both this gift, and we are indeed blessed! i only hope and pray that our writing is read and will hopefully be published; we would love to see our names on a book (or two or maybe even three! :) )! that'd be soo awesome! well done, sherry; enjoyed~ thanks for sharing!

Why Do I Write Poetry (Article) - 3/9/2005 2:06:30 PM
God article,Sherry. I never really thought about why I write poetry. I do know that I have, since an early age, wanted to write stories, and finally I decided to try it. I have five novels to date. Poetry? I think, in my case, it is just the extension of my ego. Wanting to write profoundly. I don't, but I want to. Again, good article.

A Love Ended, I'm Not Broken-Hearted (Poetry) - 8/13/2008 4:32:47 PM
After reading your poem it is quite possible my 25 year marriage was experiencing what your break up did. What I have learned since then is that love can't truly exist without committment. A very profound and interesting piece of poetry, well writen.

Understandable and well written, enjoyed the read although sad.
For the most part it did not overtake with sadness instead relief.
These breakup are sometimes a part of life and sometimes they are also warranted!

Boy, this sounds like me when we separated and then divorced so many years ago. The nothingness was bigger than all outdoors, and so was the peace. Glad a found a husband who fits the bill about what love is and enriches my life.
God bless you. Kathy

Sherry, I enjoyed your poetry. You inspired me to write:

Anything will be better
Than some things I've had.

Like that last line Sis Sherry. A friend of mine, widowed and in her early 50s, who actually happened to be named who just got jilted by a three year romance. Let's say he would have been a good candidate for surveillance on that show called "Cheaters."
Now her only concern is being checked for a disease that we pray to God she doesn't have. Wouldn't it be nice if life were as calm as the scene in your photograph above?

You've a good friend in Barbara if she's giving you the photos for free. I looked at them all, and all are terrific. Your work fits hers nicely, and yours hers.
One iddy-biddy thing I will tell you, and I'm no one at all to be advising you. Rhymed and metered poetry can be brightened considerably, and the mood can be conveyed with more power, if the rhyming is perfect, which is a thing difficult to achieve, especially when one is as prolific as yourself. A perfect rhyme is one where the last syllable "sounds" exactly like the word we are rhyming. A minor thing, to be sure, and there's only one a little off in Desert Sunset, and probably no one except another poet would ever catch it. Your work is far better than mine, and I've no business offering advice, but an inborn talent like yours should not be discolored even a little due to what we might call "clerical" error. And besides, it's your poem, and if it sounds right to you, that's all that matters. Again, Desert Sunset is obviously well thought out, and very pretty in the picture it paints. Even without Barbara's photo, I love it. Even though I have the construction of poetry established in my head, I still can't write it; I don't have the talent. It takes someone like you. As your other poems, the imperfect rhyme takes little away fromt the overall beauty, and perhaps it is simply your style. I actually have more troube with meter than I do rhyme. For meter to me correct (and who says it must be correct?), the number of syllables in the lines will be consistent with the pattern. Not just the number of syllables, but their arrangement (every word of two or more syllables and every grouping of words have stressed and unstressed syllables, and if we can keep the stress/unstressed consistent, we end up with a poem that can be read aloud without any kind of break in the rhythm.) Sherry, I wouldn't have taken the time to say all of the above if I didn't think yours is some of the pretties poetry at Authorsden.
Ghosts Within (Poetry) - 5/22/2005 9:43:40 AM
Excellent poem, Sherry! Coupled with the pic of the house, it is hauntingly inspiring. The people/places that have touched us without us aware and imprinted on our souls, and a word or scent or place can bring them to our consciousness. Thanks for a very good read. Sharon
Ghosts Within (Poetry) - 5/21/2005 1:28:04 PM

A powerful statement that love does not have to leave one brokenhearted. Excellent poem and written extremely well. Great job!

I can identify with Memories of You. Memories are so precious especially when they are all we have left of someone we cared for. You did well with this piece. God Bless.

Love is always waiting around the corner. All one needs to do is walk in that direction. Great pen
A Love Ended, I'm Not Broken-Hearted (Poetry) - 3/14/2005 5:05:25 PM
I thought it wrong to feel the way you so articulately penned this, but on reading it a couple of times, I realise that I too would feel happier, "to rather live my life alone
Than to exist once love is gone." What good is it merely existing ?A superb write Sherry, it really hits home.
A Love Ended, I'm Not Broken-Hearted (Poetry) - 3/14/2005 4:02:18 PM
AAmen to that! Telling it like it is probably hurt the guy more than all that screaming and sniveling, least I know it would me. LOL
A Love Ended, I'm Not Broken-Hearted (Poetry) - 3/14/2005 4:02:05 PM
Had one of those "I don't know why it came to me moments, have to write it down before I forget it" moments, eh? Strongly emotional, energetic, ain't NOBODY gonna mess with me type of write--ENJOYED!

A Love Ended, I'm Not Broken-Hearted (Poetry) - 3/14/2005 3:02:02 PM

This sounds like what my pastor friend said when her husband of forty one years left her for a new honey.
Beware of Your Dreams (Poetry) - 3/11/2005 11:37:49 AM
A most powerful statement, Sherry. I am glad that my dreams are not disturbing. Thank you for sharing this powerfully meaningful poem. Love and peace to you. Regis
Beware of Your Dreams (Poetry) - 3/10/2005 2:48:51 PM
Yes so sad, so scary and so true.....

Sherry this is great advice to be heeded. Fantastic write.

Beware of Your Dreams (Poetry) - 3/9/2005 3:28:23 PM
Ahhh. Even Satan appears as an Angel of Light. ;-)
We often cast our wishes upon another and paint illusions of the ideal lover over a beast. Good poem. ~~~Nordette

Beware of Your Dreams (Poetry) - 3/9/2005 11:04:21 AM
Excellent write Sherry, having experienced a dream turn into a nightmare I can relate...shame your warning never came earlier.
Beware of Your Dreams (Poetry) - 3/9/2005 11:02:02 AM
This is such an intense poem and I read it twice over to capture its essence. How love can blind one to the faults and flaws of another human being and you give yourself over to them completely, only to be trapped and unable to break free. I am glad you had the presence of mind and strength to get out. I applaud you for that and for writing such a great poem.
Beware of Your Dreams (Poetry) - 3/9/2005 10:51:09 AM
Exceptionally powerful, profound message in this perfectly penned write--well done!
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :)
Beware of Your Dreams (Poetry) - 3/9/2005 9:08:49 AM
he sounded perfect until i got to the verse about control. never let anyone else control your life...but i guess you know that. excellent write
Beware of Your Dreams (Poetry) - 3/9/2005 8:39:10 AM
Beware of Your Dreams (Poetry) - 3/9/2005 7:55:06 AM
These are such profound and educational word. What we wish for blinds us to their faults that everybody except us can see. I have been very guilty of thinking my dream came true only to realize that I was sharing my bed with Medusa. Good.
Beware of Your Dreams (Poetry) - 3/9/2005 7:48:59 AM
I wonder how many women or for that matter men find this out to be true.
Beware of Your Dreams (Poetry) - 3/9/2005 7:47:30 AM
Not guilty. I was with Ed K at the time...

Shattered Heart (Poetry) - 3/6/2005 4:48:55 AM
Very powerfully penned, Sherry.
Shattered Heart (Poetry) - 3/6/2005 3:38:44 AM
Who cares if he looks? The heart is a wonderful organ, it can mend itself. Of course you aren't speaking about a heart, it is the mind people are REALLY talking about when they speak of heart problems.
Shattered Heart (Poetry) - 3/5/2005 11:29:05 PM
Like the tears, this cascades well too.
There is such a gentle yet poignant saddness in the poem.
Very well expressed.
Keep streching them poetic wings, never let them be clipped..

Awakening (Poetry) - 3/5/2005 8:03:04 PM
ah, but john, it is simply a cover when retreating to the darkness, the pain still exists...
battle the darkness in everyone, remove it, and pain would be erased
why many who are dedicated to the light have hearts that feel so much they can't take it and turn to alcohol or drugs...it is the only way they can temporarily hide in the darkness and not feel the pain
wonderful write, Sherry! Short and yet so much meaning, truth and insight packed into it.
Black Magic Lover (Poetry) - 3/5/2005 7:52:13 PM
I went through this and refocused and the same day I let it be known I was know longer under the spell, and refocus where i should, it was shattered...
Our Future (Poetry) - 3/5/2005 4:23:37 PM
Brilliant..Some one needs to tell Mr Bush, America is not the new mostly favoured by the God of the bible. Not sure who his God is.
Very deeply poignant. The world is turning its back on God, Cathedrals, are now replaced by the mighty MALL.
As for being stewards of his creation, I think we've failed better than we could imagine..
Our Future (Poetry) - 3/5/2005 4:18:12 PM
Thank you for this mighty message of the great need for God in our lives and our nation. I pray every day that God crushes and destroys the ACCLU.

fruitful insight and fluid flow to this poem ...

Wonderful, insightful and well written poem, Sherry!
The Real You (Poetry) - 2/27/2005 2:56:39 PM
This is so true and it can be said of whoever has slipped the bond of the body to move on. From the female point of view the male physique isn't so bad either. In the new heaven there will not be any divisions because having a body will not matter, neither male or female nor race shall matter but what is written on the soul.
The Real You (Poetry) - 2/27/2005 2:40:01 PM
So true, todays outer shell, tomorrows worm food.
Must be honest though, the mind ain't what first attracts me..
I kinda like the femanimals wrapping...
The Real You (Poetry) - 2/27/2005 2:28:28 PM
Your words are so true, Sherry. What we wear on the outside is just genetics, but what is inside is who we are. Nice work!

This is a fantastic write. I've ask some of the same questions. I like tese lines...
(God created the body with perfection
Created in divine imagery
All Godís gifts were given freely
Within the body lives Godís energy)
I do believe everything we ever need is already here.
Thanks for sharing this enlightening write.
Silly Thoughts on Writing (Poetry) - 2/23/2005 6:16:58 PM
Often times I'll hear someone on public transport, or in a coffee shop, say just a few words. Out comes the book and pen, and a new poem begins.
But It can be dangerous too, if you do it near someone paranoid.
Silly Thoughts on Writing (Poetry) - 2/23/2005 5:24:17 PM
A wonderful attitude. Great write.
Silly Thoughts on Writing (Poetry) - 2/23/2005 3:53:26 PM

i did enjoy the suspense
Black Magic Lover (Poetry) - 2/10/2005 6:32:07 PM
I guess that's why it's been said that "love is blind." Sometimes, one cannot see what the "lover" is really doing until it is too late and the poison of hurt has taken hold. Thank you for sharing, Sherry. Love and peace. Regis

Sometimes this is how I feel upon wakening. I remember and it's hard to remember sometimes, so I just want to close my eyes and return to slumber. Thing is, there are the dreams...

Lost Sailors' Grave (Poetry) - 1/24/2005 3:54:28 AM
A story that has a very epic feel to it -- putting Rhyme of The Ancient Mariner to shame. Now for the readers of this poem she has a short story version of this on Tabloid Purposes, the story is equally as commanding. Gibson does know how to do the gothic style of poetry and this is destined to be a classic.

the author writes from experience, i'd wager...i wonder if this blue lake isn't some real place from a real experience in her life.

You hit this one on the head. Painful reality.
The Storm Raged On (Poetry) - 8/12/2004 4:36:31 PM
this is very astute and unfortunately, too often the case. an abused woman eventually starts to think it is all her fault and the only thing that really is...not leaving when she has the chance. i hope this isn't about you

Maybe. Unfortunately, our minds play tricks on us. It takes a long time to forget hurtful things. They seem to crop up in our memories more often than the good times. I like the flow of this poem.

Let the rainfall
