Balladeer,
You weave your words so well and always have a message to send in your work. Thank you for helping me strive for better work from myself. "Nobody does it better...."

As clever as you think I am with words, I am not clever enough to describe the appreciation that I feel from your comments. Please know that it is there....in spades.

May I print this poem and just keep it on hand?  You know, I think we all could use a dose of reading it now and then.  I really enjoy your poetry - You make me smile; you make me think; and sometimes, I feel a bit of a tear.  I am glad to be reading your poems and the poems of so many others who have been here for so long.

The best thing about your poetry is it is never old. Love this one also. "late"

It is soo true, when the criminal escape, and his victims are in pain, is it also the guard that will feel the guilt. He must be thinking all te time, i wish i never let him escape. It say so much about this matter. I have never thought it in this way really really nice

I love this, Balladeer, and the true consciousness behind them.  It's full of heart.  It doesn't matter that tears sometimes roll when love happens.  The glow is healing, revealing, and heart stealing.

latearrival could not be more right, your words are timeless. ~ KL

A great story line and good writing. I like the rhyme scheme second and last lines rhyme but you could do better by working the first and third lines as well to rhyme. I would tighten up the thoughts and give it better rhythm.

Poetal, you managed to select three of the worst poems I had written way back when. They were written more as messages to people for specific reasons rather than poetic excellence but I thank you for your advice.

Just the slightest twinge of sarcasm or a negative connotation may open the door to an entire war.  How many times I have been cautioned to stand porter at the door of thought, when I should have given that directive a more blantant meaning to think before I speak....  

This poem may not be what you consider the best of your form, my Balladeer friend, but you couldn't have written one that has more of an impact in truth.  Thoughts are the bow, words the arrow, and they have tremendous power.  So why not used them to heal instead of harm?
