Must be the time of year but I sit here and think
watching ICQ as it starts to open up and blink
2 names stay quiet and silent no light on there
do I delete those I no longer think care

Light reflects off my rings last time I made a date
seemed the right thing to do, no love yet no hate
the empty lights are different on my list  though
forecast of a future one we'll never now know

How do we make the change get ready for the event
when you still feel every word you said and meant
do I make a date and turn this heart from in to out
will that switch off the questions and lingering doubt

Love where two people can be and share so much
reading each other's minds sharing a joyous touch
Blackpool has an Illuminations Night is that what I do
but if the lights go out all is lost between me and you...


 Yesterday is but today's memory and tomorrow is today's dream...

Wish there was a light on my heart to let me know when it's ok to use it again... unfortunately, I think the light is permanently burned out!  I like this one, very sad...

Very well written......I like this Rainbow Girl.  But know that the light in the heart never burns out....sometimes the electricity is bypassed to another part of our life....Chidren.....animals, other family ect...  But it still is able to shine bright.....the hard part is hooking it back up after the plug has been pulled.  Bless you.....and safe journey where ever you may go.

Deletion is a final step.

Severn: Well, I guess it is kind of but sometimes reality grabs you and you have to face it...it takes two to conquer the world..  )

HUGS

Nan: Yep and when my lights twinkle the price is sky high..*g*

HUSG

PdV: I wrote it as it came out, if that makes sense, very often it doesn't sink in what I say, I'm to used to thinking what I think is wrong so in 24 hours I could well think differently...do we have tippex here?..  

HUSG

First__Knight: you're a deep one, aren't you...heck, I feel like you can see in my mind...pkease don't, the trip is not worth the effort..and yes, the heart does always burn with fire but sometimes without coals..

HUGS

Bal: deletion sure is, but then if something is worth having, it's worth fighting for and I don't know what he thinks (2 names being the same person)...I'll survive though..

RainbowGirl I'm so glad I finally get to see what you look like. You beautiful thing you!     ICQ and deleting been there, I really hesitate to do it myself..
If they aren't in touch though, with a special soul such as yourself maybe you should delete them?
Just remember you are special, a light to us all.  They don't know what they are missing out on!!  ((HUGS))    

 What the inner voice says will NOT disappoint the hoping soul.

Nice poem....definitelyshowing your deepest feelings.  If it bothers you dreadfully that they're no longer there, DELETE!  If you can endure, without being upset about it, wait and see.  Only you know what this is doing to you, but maybe they just felt unworthy of you..huh?

Oh boy:....I know a few will know what I mean when I say this but one certainly will...PMT...I'm laughing so much, how could I be so stupid as to not recognise what I warn people about...10000000000000% super sensitivity at moments like these...heck, I could see a watering can empty and cry and feel sorry for it or a cat dish that's empty and mourn the loss of a tin of catfood from the supermarket shelf to the sales assistant having to restock the tin that I took to feed my cat's empty bowl....hmmmm...women!!!

Aren't we just great???..Loveable???? Adorable??? and totally sensitive?..*I nod* in agreement with myself...LOL

Sorry Guys:  I was so busy laughing at myself I forgot to read the replies...ROFL...oops, maybe I shouldn't have said that but hey, comeone, have you never felt out of sorts with yourself and wondered why the heck you felt like a tin of sardines without tomato sauce???...ok, maybe the analogy isn't that impressive but believe me, at my age, my emotions are worse than a see-saw with children one end and adults the other so to know why, makes me laugh cause I am sensitive but I am REALLY sensitive at these moments and I'm chuckling to know that some stranger didn't come and invade my mind.....ok, I'll wipe my hand across my face and become serious but this is a serious medical break-through...I know what I'm suffering from, no diagnosis needed....ok, Rainbow...shut up, you're the only one who finds it funny...*g*

I'm taking myself away from you all now, you'll just have to do without my peculiar sense of dry humour...  

Night, sweet dreams and ROFL at self diagnosis...but I agree, in principle, I'm a nut!...LOL

Very well written ... I'd say "yes", delete those who do not care ... but be sure they don't before you do it

LOL @ PMT ... Did you have brandy on top of that ? *g*

I’d delete him, the coof deserves it!!!

(don’t slip and delete me by accident though)



 Yes, I admit your general rule. That every poet is a fool:
But I myself may serve to show it. That every fool is not a poet.

As long as the light still shines in your heart, then there is always hope my friend. Granted, sometimes that hope hurts more than helps, but what is there to life but hope?

Thank you all for the responses but really I was just thinking aloud, as we sometimes all do.  I apologise for any controversy this may have caused, I guess it comes down to interpretation, and he's a special guy, heck, he must be, I wrote a poem about it..
