Due to circumstances in my life,  I must leave
Passions.  I have enjoyed all of you,  your poetry
and your kindness...

It has been fun...

Thank you all.  Hopefully someday the sun will shine
on my life and allow me this opportunity again.

Thank you again.

Oh, dear Magnus, I am saddened by this announcement more than you will ever know. It has been such a joy reading your poetry and your comments. I pray that your life will be filled with peace and that your muse will lead you back to Passions one day.
      Be well & happy my friend.
              hugs, Chris

It was a surprise to see that you are leaving. And you will be missed. I hope that you have happiness wherever you go and whatever you do.

Thank you for the many poems that reached into my heart making it sing if only for those minutes.

Dang! You are one of the best, Barry, and will be missed. I sure hope this is a short temporary MIA scene. ANYwhere you go on planet Earth there are computers. Keep your login name and password handy, and please visit us when you can.
I'm really going to miss you!

I applaud you poet sir on being able to do this...there have been times when "life" has needed me to do the same and I was not strong enough...I wish you well where ever your roads carry you and hope that you find your way back should you need to.
take care Barry

OOOOOhhh, nnnnnnoooooooo! Say it isn't so!
Whenever you have gone on your sabbaticals, I have patiently awaited your return! You are not only one of my favorite poets, you are one of my favorite men!

You are an incredibly gifted writer, you're busting with brains--and brawn--from your photo! --and you are full of heart and soul. Please do pop in and say "hello" from time to time!

I'm addicted to this site! I run two businesses from home and I have to keep popping in to Pip for my fixes! Somedays, I drive myself crazy! The pull is so strong.

May your sails be full of the winds of good fortune!--and know that you shall be sorely missed, Dear Poe Man!

Oh, Barry, this is such sad news. From the first day I came to Passions, you have been one of my favorite people here. You are always so nice and mannerly...so compassionate and caring....with your poetry and your replies.

I know that sometimes situations come about that make it necessary for us to do things we don't really want to do. We do them, though, because we think it's for the best. I do hope that you will decide to come back to us, my friend. We all love and respect you here.

Until we meet again, take care of yourself, dear Barry,  and know that we are here for you if you need us.
Heart hugs to you, our friend        
Ethel

Magnus~
May the winds of serene thoughts blow gently about you ... ~
It's been such a treasure to know the kindness of such a gentle spirit~

May each sunrise shower you with rays of wisdom and every sunset fall softly upon your heart~

Thank you my friend~

This is Tom Bodette saying "We'll leave the light on for you." Barry, good man, there comes a time when good byes are best choices. I hate that. You will be sorely missed until you return. God speed dear friend.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Wishing you the best, even that it sadden me too, to see you go. But I do hope that you will find your way back here to passions.

Take care Barry and know that you have a lot of friends here, even those who don´t reply much, like I do.


Till we meet again

Magnus,

Do what you must and know that you will be missed. Do what you must but, do not stay away too long. Do what you must knowing that you are leaving a saddend void.

and know in your heart that in the world of virtual lovers you are always there and we are here.

Remember, as you have written so be it:

"Above me, the ceiling’s texture,  
countless bumps reminding me of
those roads traveled over goose
flesh with a giggle..

Beside me, flower upon flower,
swaying in my mind’s eye, of
a meadow’s frolic.

Beneath me, the warmth of a sun’s
rays, the softness of cotton clouds,
the image of sheer and silkiness
in skin clothed...wanting...
yearning...

Around me, the fragrance of shoulders
white as passion rose within the throes
of lovers dancing.

You were there among those clouds,
dancing on the meadow,   lying
sensually upon a silken bed.  

I still feel your presence within the
rumpled sheer.  The musk of you
filling my senses.

Come again my love, that the moon
might smile and blush the rose.  As
nails trace and lace rustles the
warmth of you...

I wait...."

We wait..
Thank for all your wonderful poetry and shining your light on me.
Simplygold

This is indeed sad news to find this morning... your talent, grace and class will be so greatly missed.
I know this isn't a decision made lightly... but I hope this is only a sabbatical and that your path someday brings you this way again... for until then, you leave a hole in this family only you can fill.
Wishing you the best... thanking you for all that's been. *S*
