(I'm going to appologize in advance here as the title states, these are just my ramblings....posted more for my own benifit and surely not for their literary quality.)
3 AM Ramblings of a Madwoman

Iíve memorized your letter
Each word and every line
When someone asks me how I am
I smile and say, ďJust fineĒ

You wrote yourself into my life
Of that there is no doubt
And now Iíve grown to love you so
You write your own self out

I opened up my life to you
Buried all my fears
Canít you see my heart is breaking?
Canít you feel my tears?

Do you hear me crying out
In the depths of sleep?
Oceans wonít be big enough
For all these tears I weep

What happens to a fragile heart
Now shattered into bits?
How do you piece a puzzled life
Where nothing ever fits?

Is there someone out there
Whoíll love me just for me?
Or do I just keep wishing on
Every star I see?

Shall I chalk one up to ďloveĒ
And just give up the fight?
Iím left with many questions
No answers in clear sight

Itís ever so confusing
Where do I go from here?
I read your letter one more time
And brush away a tear

Worst to date???? Hoot you're a hoot...
I loved it. Maybe I just don't know anything about poetry then, cause I thought this was really good.

Ruth, This was written very well, no need for apologies. You are very talented in your writing. The ship hasn't docked yet, it's lost at sea.

Although I do not know what truths,if any, lie behind this piece Hoot, it is a heartbreaker....as with all your work, it is beautifully written

A soul that writes from the heart and shares it, truly gives a gift extraordinaire!

Hootessa - blues??? You??? How can this be - somebody who uplifts so many people... hang in there, sweet lady. For all you know, the ship might be a submarine, and it is already in port, just not docked yet.

I can relate to this too much Even though I don't know exactly what you have to deal with, your feelings showed through this so perfectly, as with all of your poems I've read. I hope things get better soon.

Lady Hoot: Finer ramblings from a madwoman one can not imagine. I've been more than busy these past weeks and haven't had the time to even really produce postable ramblings, much more read the several hundred poems that have come about in my absence. Hope your offering here is not a view on recent events, only those of the far past. Chin up Lady, chin up.

Forget it, Hoot. You're the Queen Mary. He was just a little dinghy. Sail on!

Ruth...you know always...anytime I am here for you. I know how and why you are at this place. All I can say is lean on me and time will heal everything my friend. Chalk this one up to experience and learn from it....((((((HUG)))))

Ruth the heart sure can be a painful organ can't it?? Yet I would not want to live without one.. I just always remember the cowardly lion in Oz...he knew he had a heart when he felt it breaking. You, too, have one my Dear....be so happy about that.

Oh no. How sad. Did things not work out as you had hoped? Excellent poem.
