'Deer dear heart, didn't I say you always had an outstanding talent. Utterly wonderful flow, poetry rarely gets better than this, yours does, but then it is exceptional.

First class kid, this is definitely a must as a repost, you can't expect those newbies and others to trek down here, they might be allergic to all sorts. Isn't it amazing how much treasure is lying here? And so much of it with your name stamped in gold on it too.  
Take care
love as always
Mushy
    

Take back the hope you gave,- I claim
Only a memory of the same

Balladeer,

    Since I can't sleep, I went looking And I found this.. and wow. It brought tears to my eyes.  We have all been here, afraid to admit the truth.  Afraid to be alone. I'm glad I found this.

Hugs,
Tara

I'm glad Tara found this too, its perfect.  Silly publishers who have overlooked you, they ought to be fired. I loved this line because it's such a great question:

Funny all the energy we waste on foolish schemes.
We wouldn't strike that matchstick to watch it flame anew,
Why, then, can't we know enough
To know when love is through?

I don't know.  I just don't know.  Maybe cuz love does some impossible things. Sigh.

Keep up the good - I mean amazing - work

I understand....hearts have a way of not listening when they don't like the words..

Thank you for reading and I wish you luck...

exactly
Just looking through the archives. This one struck my life the closest right now.

I will not bend to the cowardice of a silent judgement.

How in the heck do I always miss the good ones?

This is beautiful !! and I so agree with you.  Sometimes we just don't know when enough is enough, or when it's really through.  Goodness knows, sometimes I look back and think that I may have been asking for punishment haha

Once again, a splendid write and I am reminded how much I love and miss your writing.

I may hate myself in the morning - but I'm gonna love you tonight

   Sometimes, even though you know it's true,
   you've built so much together that you tend,
   to give up and not try to start anew,
   but stay together to the bitter end.

     I much enjoyed your thought provoking and well written words, Sir.
