This really moved me - I've written a similar poem for a similar situation, and I too, froze. Thanks for your input on my poem "sail away...or not." God knows we'd be SICK of ourselves & eachother if we were happy all the time!! I feel 99% of my strength has come from my "not so thrilling" experiences....your comments mean alot to me - I'm a fan of your work.

"The strongest man in the world is he who stands most alone..." Henrik Ibsen (1826-1906) Norwegian dramatist lyric poet
Thankyou so much, poetFemmeFatale. In my not-very-happy times writing poetry (and prose) has saved me from completely collapsing. I admit I don't write the cheeriest stuff in the world - although recently life's been cool so some of my work is slightly happier! I like your work a lot too and want to read more! ( I just don't get a lot of time on the net, but I'll be searching for your poems when I'm on-line.
