Of Evil Dreams And Divine Poets

Of evil dreams and divine poets -
Have come to me my fairest friends.
From the darkest of oubliettes,
In their healing my hope ascends.

Where life has taught me not to trust -
Past what the naked eye may see.
When to the Darkness I was thrust,
It was their words that rescued me.

Nary are they I've given call,
When all rationale absconds.
But in these two, I've trusted all,
And found new strength within their bonds.

I've cried to them when all seemed lost.
I've laughed with them when all was right.
They've helped me see love worth the cost.
Love, in turn, turned my soul's delight.

Where now I hold Femme in my love,
I would not have laid heart on the line.
Had I not first the friendship of -
DreamEvil and Poet DeVine.

Thank you Dream and Devine for being there when I needed you most. This will not be forgotten unto me.

Michael Anderson

And so, being young and dipt in folly
I fell in love with melancholy,
But dreams - of those who dream as I,
Aspiringly, are damned, and die:

And responded to so beautifully...I'm glad you had the faith to entrust your heart into the safekeeping of others...

Bless you Michael

Darn it Michael, you made me cry! Not only is your poem so touching in itself, but your words of friendship have pierced my heart. As you know, I will be here for you whenever you need a friend - what is life without someone you can lean on? Your happiness of late is a joy to see and I pray that your heart's desire is soon within your grasp.

Wonderful tribute Michael and I'm so glad you trusted them enough to let your heart out just a bit to meet Gennifer

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints in our heart and we are never ever the same.

Thank you all for leaving footprints!!

Michael: Though I have not been here long...I have been here long enough to see the change in your poetry. I am truly glad for you. I know what it's like to have true frineds that you know will always be there for you regardless of the situation...or what you may be asking...I wish all people knew that feeling.

A beautiful poem as always.

Well met indeed my Dark friend. I am glad to have been able to help, though I admit 'tis passing strange for me to do such for a male. You are my friend, bound by ties other than blood. You owe me nothing as your happiness is reward enough. This tribute now is moving indeed as I never thought to be a subject for your verse.

pFF as with Michael, you owe me nothing. 'Tis only what I would do for any friend. Make each other happy and that should erase any sense of debt you may feel.

Now and forever my heart hears ~one voice~.
