A query for those in the know: Is there any way to end my membership at PIP, aside from fading away and never posting again? Not the most adequate form of closure, as you can imagine.

I won't be checking on replies, nor answering any e-mails detailing the possible procedure (nor justifying my reasons). Either it can be done, or it can't. And it if can't, then so be it.

I've enjoyed my time at PIP, and have been driven furious by it in equal amounts. You can only be driven into apoplexy by what you once loved, so consider that a good thing.

I'm not going to list reasons here, or waste time with the roll call of names. Those who are near and dear to me know who they are, and quite possibly know the reasons that I have made myself a ghost at this site. Those who aren't near and dear aren't even reading this, or they are, and shrugging this off. As is their right.

It occurred to me today that I have been part of this place, off and on, for four years. It has been, I hope, an enriching -- if not sometimes trying -- experience for the both of us.

Enjoy your home, and your talents.

Mikey, I for one will miss your writings....I even will miss looking up words in the dictionary that you have used and I didn't know what they meant. As per "apoplexy."  You made me think, feel and wonder. Whatever your reasons for leaving....be well and never stop writing. Chris

I hate to see you leave as I have always enjoyed your work but please know the door is always open to the pages of blue.
Good luck in all of your endeavors.

bsquirrel,

Yes, I've read your work and enjoyed. I wish you well and hope that given time you will one day open this door again.

I haven't been around as often as I used to be for many different reasons.  But, somthing alwayz brings me back.  I think it's the poetry and the way it makes me laugh and cry.  But, I am away more than I am here.  I want you to know you've been one of my favorites.
Anywayz, I wish YOU the best of everything.  Take Care!!!!
HUGS,

Mike, I've told you different times since I've been here, that I didn't know what to say in response to your poetry....because you are such a talented and intelligent writer. I love to read your poetry, though, because I always learned something from it. I have missed you, too...but I guess that doesn't matter. Anyway, I wish that all of you wouldn't leave, but it looks like some of you have made up your minds to do so. All I know to say is that I wish you wouldn't , but if you do, I wish you well.

but you will take a piece of our hearts with you, you do know that, don't you?
I won't ask why you are leaving, just want you to know how many times your replies to my writes touched both mind and heart, thanking you for your wonderful feedback and unique POV.
Michael, thank you for being here for me so many times.

I wish you well of course wherever life takes you, but also hope you discussed your reasons for leaving with the Administration so future problems could be avoided?  Best to you and Lori.

Sorry to see you go... you are a wonderful poet and I wish you all the best in the future!

Oh, make me Thine forever
And should I fainting be
Lord, let me never ever
Outlive my love for Thee
