I wondered if there could be a forum created for all the poetry that has no home?  Those poems that are written by people that need a place to write in order to heal, and their poetry doesn't fit into any of the current categories.

I wish it was a simple as a skinned knee Sharon, and I shall be glad to define healing in the context I submitted this.  Currently there is really no place for people to write out their feelings from either a personal experience, or from the victim's perspective of being a victim of a crime, or abuse of any type where the perpetrator is either found to be guilty of the said crime or they get off away with it.  So, it is more than a skinned knee, it is a bruised and very badly hurt soul that needs repair.  However, the definition of healing as it appears on dictionary.com is this... http://www.dictionary.com/search?q=healing

heal   Pronunciation Key  (hl)
v. healed, heal·ing, heals
v. tr.
To restore to health or soundness; cure. See Synonyms at cure.
To set right; repair: healed the rift between us.
To restore (a person) to spiritual wholeness.

v. intr.
To become whole and sound; return to health.

It is a proven fact that if a person writes out their feelings it is healing.  So, that is the healing I refer to in my request, but as it turns out this issue has been solved, so I actually am withdrawing the suggestion as the Webmaster has explained it to me.  Thank you though.

I read what Ron said too. I think Spiritual would be a good place for these....Spiritual is not just poetry pertaining to religion..it's about seeking solace for the spirit. Just an idea. Sigh.
