Martie, You've left me speechless in the feeling of alone. You are a wonderful writer, Martie, I've been saying that all along, but yet I'm always stunned with each new piece. I hope to see you soon Liz
Man! Martie - If I had known women feel this way, I would have been much more careful where I slept - lol. Seriously, though - this poem was wonderful for the feelings it brought out - this is a true work of art. I sincerely hope you are not going through this right now. The melancholy tone was haunting. I loved the lines:
The blanket of night descends and I find the goblins I listed in my childhood waiting for this lonesome moment to make a small sound that tucks into my reflection.
This is such an incredibly vivid description of loneliness and loss. I love every word.
Ala bam a
