Your excerpts are wonderfully beautiful Joyelle, enjoyed reading very much. There is "No Greater Love" because for the true believers
love stays nestled deep within their hearts ready to share.

Yup, I have been here, like I am sure many others have as well, their is a desperation here from a heart that loves unconditionally, great work.
Lost Ship (Poetry) - 1/16/2009 3:56:56 PM
The same old tale...voiced in the words of youth. Many women have traveled that path and you have summed it up beautiful and articulately!
Same old #$!....different year! LOL
Real Come Back (Poetry) - 1/16/2009 3:54:15 PM
This is a writing of opinion...and versed very well. I grew up with the "originals" Motowns greatest, Diana Ross, Earth Wind & Fire, Smokey R, Mr Stevie Wonder and the fabulous Temptations! I love to listen to the OLDIES...I guess because I am old!
But I must say, I do enjoy some of the newer sounds, Kid Rock, Sade and always the new country sounds!
I Got A Voice (Poetry) - 1/16/2009 3:47:07 PM
Your wonderful worded writing tell of your voice...and it shouts of self worth and meaning!
You Go Girl!!!
I Got A Voice (Poetry) - 1/12/2009 6:38:34 AM
It is a difficult thing to cultivate and use our voice when the whole world seems to conspire to keep us quiet. I love the poem and you have a strong voice.
I Got A Voice (Poetry) - 1/9/2009 8:11:12 PM
Always find it so sad when people do not believe they have worth, when the truth is we all have worth, beautifully expressed...

Real Come Back (Poetry) - 12/23/2008 10:18:07 PM
This is true in SO many genres of music, but I totally agree about rap-the c'rap of today bears zero resemblance to people like Run-DMC, Public Enemy, Queen Latifah, Ice-T, Yo-Yo, MC Lyte, or any of the 90's rappers-I loved rap then, wouldn't listen to it now. The same goes for rock and pop, it is all bland Britney Spears garbage. This is a great write-Michelle
Mr. Black and White (Poetry) - 12/23/2008 10:14:18 PM
This is excellent, your best that I have read of yours so far.

His Age My Age (Poetry) - 12/20/2008 2:26:11 AM
Love has no age limits.Age is just a number.I remember when Will Smith on the Fresh Prince of Bel Air was trying to go out with this woman.played by Jasmine Guy from a Different World).Carlton told Will that a college girl will not date someone like him.Will said that he and her are from the same hood.Then he said something that was funny.but yet true.He said "21,28,33,they are all in the same grade".
take care of yourself
Like Clockwork (Poetry) - 12/20/2008 2:19:45 AM
I just love the fire and passion that you express in your poems.You are the type of person that doesn't take any crap from anybody and I like that.Your ex should just move on with his love.He should just be a magician and make himself disappeared instead of coming back like a fly on a hot summer day.Its good that you are moving on with your life.Keep doing your thing :-)take care
Befriend The Time (Poetry) - 12/20/2008 2:14:04 AM
So true are your words.If people want to have a healthy relationship,then they need to make the ultimate sacrifice and spend time and work on it.take care.I like reading this poem
Lost Ship (Poetry) - 12/19/2008 12:58:33 AM
You have gone through a lot of things in your life and you have become a better person for seeing things for what they truly are.Your poetry is a reflection of it.You have become a smart,intelligent and may I say beautiful woman who has a lot to offer in this world.This is an excellent poem,take care of yourself

Wave Good Bye (Poetry) - 12/18/2008 1:25:23 AM
Antoionette,I am proud of you for admitting your mistakes and downfalls so that you can become the type of person that you are.Everybody and I mean everybody make mistakes.No one is Superman and each and everyone of us have a kryptonite.You have learned from your mistakes and now you have become a stronger,better and beautiful person who deserves to be happy and to have all the best things that life has to offer.I applaud and commend you for it.You are simply an amazing person and it reflects from your poetry and what you have dealt with in your life.Take care and have a Merry Christmas
Put Those Words To Rest (Poetry) - 12/18/2008 1:19:12 AM
Whenever I would read your poems,they are fill with fire and passion which is what I truly like about your poetry.They are straight-forward and honest.Like the old saying goes "say what you mean and mean what you say".Its stupid and also hurtful to a person's feelings when they don't mean what they say and want to play games and play around with your emotions.This is an excellent poem.I like how you don't hold anything back and I respect you for it.I am looking forward to reading your next poem.take care
My Truth (Poetry) - 12/18/2008 1:13:28 AM
An excellent and well written poem.take care
Real Come Back (Poetry) - 12/18/2008 12:34:03 AM
This is a well written poem.Today's music is such a joke.All these rappers talk about is bling and all the other things you mentioned.Its like they don't try to put originality and creativity in their songs.I remember when Mister Cee who is a DJ at Hot97 here in NYC said that today's music is just "ringtone music" and that's what it truly is.These rappers just make music and songs just for teenagers and young adults to put in their ringtone of their cellphone.I enjoy reading this poem and 'real" definitely needs to come back.take care
Wave Good Bye (Poetry) - 12/15/2008 12:45:57 PM
Well my dear new friend... sounds as if you found yourself...the one who was always there...just didn't sparkle from within like this one does... You sparkle with all the good and bad of the past, present and future... Mistakes will always be made...but you have learned a hard lesson...and guess what...you are more beautiful than ever!!! and...Smart... how cool is that!!! Kick ass girl!!! hugs, lindalaw

His Age My Age (Poetry) - 12/13/2008 9:38:54 PM
I had to comment on this because I can completely relate, and I am in total agreement, age is just a number, and when you love, there is no age, I agree. Will add this to my library :) Michelle
Not Meant (Poetry) - 12/11/2008 9:19:35 PM
Tight roping unbalanced is a tactic you can challenge
I like to keep my heels on the ground
Iím not sprinting from us Iím running from the outcome
Itís nothing worth risking my fundamental nature for
LOVE those lines-this is very cool, spoken word waiting to happen.
My Addiction (Poetry) - 12/10/2008 5:54:59 AM

Not Meant (Poetry) - 12/9/2008 3:57:28 PM
Sadly sometimes it is the way it must be and to recognize that fact alone shows one has already moved on, nice writing...

Not Meant (Poetry) - 12/9/2008 2:57:32 PM
As your writing speaks directly and succinctly...I like what you say and the authority with which you say it!! Good for you. Good for those who heed your words. Nice writing. lindalaw

Cool writing. I like that you are determined, and he is out in the cold. This is the saga of many, however....too many less courageous and wise as you. Keep writing. Now..go study! lindalaw
His Age My Age (Poetry) - 12/3/2008 1:29:46 PM
Many lasting love relations have been born when age was just a number. With the advent of Viagra, 80 year old men are still enjoying the fruits of a relationship that didn't pay attention to age.
Bliss vs. Reaching a Dream (Poetry) - 12/2/2008 2:04:03 PM
Chasing rainbows and dreams, beautful in and of itself. Why not be successful at both and never stop reaching, nice writing..

Lost Ship (Poetry) - 12/1/2008 2:02:33 PM
Writing is for these emotions put to paper...Precisely! You have done it for yourself and many others who have lived and/or living this same path... Get out... it's tough at first....but I'll tell you it will be so wonderful once the new journey begins without this baggage!!!!!!! You have me hooked... keep writing... this is good. lindalaw
Lost Ship (Poetry) - 12/1/2008 1:22:48 PM
Sounds like you had a lot of baggage to unload. I identify with this so much. Did you know my ex-husband? Could swear you were talking about him.
Question of Truth (Poetry) - 11/30/2008 2:29:56 PM
I liked the piece, but the language of the last line sorta ruined it for me. I hope you don't mind the honest feedback.

Like My Momma Always Said: You Made Your Bed Now Sleep In It,i.e.Those Who Cannot Overcome Are Weak In The (Your) Mind..
Lazy M (Poetry) - 11/28/2008 8:44:34 PM
I have been here-thank God my brother is now a recovering addict, but he took us along to hell and back-this brought back painful memories. Raw, real and necessary writing.
Can I (Poetry) - 11/28/2008 7:05:37 PM
