Addicted To Passions In Poetry

Too many postings
Too little time
Iím lost in your meter
Your rhythm, your rhyme

Iím addicted to Passions
I canít get enough
You words are amazing
This is very good stuff

I read every posting
Each word, every line
Your talents delight me
Your poetry fine

You pour out you feelings
Into fine works of art
Each tiny fragment
A glimpse of your heart

You write of your life
Loss, humor and love
The poets so special
Like Wolfgang and Whtdove

Thereís Seymore and Michael
Ron, Julie and Nan
Caroline and The Jackal
Craig and Inclan

We canít forget Balladeer
His works how they move me
Master, Isabelle and Tyke
Denise and Ms Peri

Then thereís Dream Evil
Who talents are rare
Mike, Tim and Toerag
And Sunshine so fair

There are Poets and Angels
Of which we have many
Lucie and Rainbow girl
Did I forget any?

The numbers astounding
Too many to name
But I find myself reading
Each one just the same

So, here I sit
Itís now time for bed
My eyes are tired
But I keep reading instead

Thereís so much talent
I just canít believe it
I hate to miss any
Not one little bit

Each poet so special
The list never ends
And theyíve gone from strangers
To being my friends

It is with sad heart
That I must turn away
What the heck, one more posting
Then Iíll call it a day

Dear Hoot,
Let me be the first but not the last to say
this is a wonderful poem and it will probably break a record for responses. *L*

This is great! Exactly how I feel. I even keep PiP on my computer at work so during slow times, I can jump on and read... so, will the first Passions Anonymous meeting be held at your place?

Hoot,
I've come to know the truth about Passions in the last few weeks and so I have to agree with you, for the most part. Thank you for a tribute well done.

Hi my name is Izzy and I'm a Passions-a-holic. I haven't written a poem in 12 hours, so my hands are starting shake and my vision is getting a bit fuzzy.

I am honored to be mentioned among your "friends" hoot_owl, Indeed, sleep does seem to be overrated when one can stay up long hour reading here. Quite addicting.

You are a very special person, ruth. Thank you soooo much for including my name in this excellent tribute! even though I had my PERIscope up, I didn't see it comin'!!

You need to add your name in there, instead of keeping it on the PERImeter as author.

nice job! ok, now that I got my "response" fix, I need to write a poem... quick!

I knew I was an addictive personality, but this is getting ridiculous..... LOL

Hoot, it is but a great honor to find a place in your thoughts, and better yet to be given the honor to read them Thanks!

Marvelous ... this place ranks right up there with chocolate and cappuccino on the "addictive" list ...

Balladeer is right, though ... you should have mentioned yourself in your lovely little piece ... give credit where credit is due, so to speak ...

Good stuff ... more please!
