sorry, sharon, i beg to differ with you... the rhyming did not sound forced or hokey and your recitation was emotive, sensual and fluid. seriously!
you should go to poetry readings and watch others get up there and recite until you build up the nerve to do it yourself.
wanna come with me? hehe (i'm trying to convince myself, too, since the live presentation of poetry is a dimension of verse which i think all writers should experience.... awww come on!! meet me next tues night a 9... lol)
