"The skyís a somber shade and hue
The stars no twinkle give...
As if they, too, are missing you-
Have lost the will to live."
Gosh, Gunslinger...I don't know whether to cry or applaud, or both! This is a deliciously lachrymose composition...just reading it makes one want to weep. So skillfully written, as is all your work, but this one brings with it that question that I'm sure is far too personal, but that I am inclined to ask anyway...are you alright? You know, our poetic license allows us to inject our "first person" into much of what we write, regardless of whether or not the text of the poem is depicting our actual current personal scenario... Just wondering how you're doing.
Love and shared peace,
