The light has dimmed tonight
a poet laid down her pen
she wrote from a loving heart
but vows never to do so again
What light she had shone here
unseen by many of you
a poet's pen lain to rest
rending her heart in two.

Not a true story, though the feelings are true....

Oh, I'm so sorry you're blue  
Please let me know what to do
To bring back the joy again
To bring back that poet's pen!

How about some of those rolly smilies?

PdV....if you lay down your pen, well.....I'm not threatening you or anything......ok....so maybe I am.  LOL   I have learned so much from you in here - sounds like someone has hurt you - disregard their carelessness, and keep a clear head, ok?  I can relate to your frustration though...I think maybe I've been there - felt that.  You sure said alot with few words!  Bravissimo my lady !

~Grabs her psychology books~ ~trying to figure out Ms. deVine~ hmmmmmmmmmmm  This could be a fairly difficult task, darlin'!  But, I must admit...it would be well worth the effort if I could help you in any way.  
Now, if someone say...took words that you wrote from your heart and somehow used them against you, or twisted them around...I could see why you'd want that part of you to be "put to rest." (so to speak) Just remember one thing, the words you write are not merely for the masses.  They are for YOU.  I believe that about all art forms. (btw..if this has nothing to do with what you've written, I hope it at the very least brought a smile.)

So sad, so blue.

I am sorry your sad.....I liked your poem here. It show great sorrow and you have such talent. I fear a great loss should you stop writing.  Tell us it won't be so

Lady deVine, I pray you do not give up the pen nor keyboard. Losing such a talent as yours to mundane life would be tantamount to sin and while a sinner I may be, still that is one sin that would weigh heavily on me. You may call it enlightened self-interest if you wish then that I ask that you give over such thoughts and deeds. I ask  not solely as a friend and fellow wordsmith, but as a reader of your works and for the best interests of Passions.

Thank you for being you.  


 Now and forever, my heart hears ~one voice~.

PDV, I feel terrible that you are hurting and Im sorry that I did not see it.Please if you need a shoulder mine is available. I have learnt so much from you, please don't give up your pen. I would certainly miss reading your work.

PDV...you know I can relate well to this one. It is hard to write with a sad heart. But you have so much warmth and vitality to waste that by not pouring it out in your clever words would truly be a shame. I know, I wasted 15 years where I didn't write a word and I regret every wasted moment of that time. Meet me on ICQ if you need to talk, just don't give up your words.

Let that pen rest only long enough to flex your fingers, deVine one... for we need your illumination!

Dear Poet deVine,

One arrow, one bow.
One sorrow, one beau.
One part, one woe.
One heart I know.

She should not leave,
She should not grieve,
She's not naive,
And after all she's Gods made Eve.

Your friend, Sy

I echo all above and send Hugs PdV....

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

What a powerful little piece, PdV.  I'm glad it's not true.
