"One, Two, Three, Four..."

Hurry!  Hurry! Come quickly as you can!
I've been thinking of a place since before the counting began.

This place, it's the best, this I know.
I think it's a place after me, everyone will follow.

My heart is racing, I can't catch my breath!
Only four more counting numbers are left.

Up, up, up...climb into the poetry.
I'm sure my friends would never guess in here I'd be.

"Seventeen, Eighteen, Nineteen, Twenty!
Ready or not, here I come!"

Steady now.
I'm trying not to breath
as my friend in poetry searches
for the meanings underneath.

Just some fun with our forum!
Ever feel like you've found the perfect
"hiding place"
where you can be yourself
and not be judged?
This forum reminds me of the "excitement"
of finding a brand new hiding place...
unchartered waters...
I hope you can relate!
I'm proud to share this hiding place with you all!

I have found that it keep`s my mind busy.
And yes it`s a great hiding place.
I was told about this place by a dear friend of mine and it amazes me to see just how much it comforts another (myself included)to get feed back on what ever we post.
Now,what or who is it that your hiding from?
Nice job Miss.J.F.    



 Today is the first day of the rest of my life.
And the begining of a new one.

Kind of an interesting perspective on the forums.  Most times I feel like this is the only place I can really be me, that my writing expresses what I cannot in "reality".
Cute little poem - who's turn is it seek?

This is lovely.  Nobody can find me here.  I've been hiding for quite some time now!

But....but.....Jan.....yassee?..I'm myself here? And sometimes it gets me in trouble, deleted, or chastised?....But, it's like my real life......so?....where do ya go?...I went to a psychiatrist...he just laughed his ass off at me?...I went to another therapist, he asked if I wanted a job?...I went to a sex therapist.....she fell in love with me?....Now then, all I have left is here?...Oh well....everyone's gotta be somewhere....right?

January,
Yes this is a marvalous place and the people are wonderful. It has been a haven for quite a few of us, a very positive place with lots of love. And I have become very addicted. Welcome to poets Shangri-la.

JF ... you have wonderful thoughts ... I'm still smiling
Out on the newsgroups people had to e-mail each other to give a positive response
but here you can state your feelings openly
with little to fear

Wizzard-
Quite the contrary...not hiding!  I share this forum haven with those I know.  A great mix of exitement and healing I find in here, and often a great heap of laughs to boot.  

Michael-
You can seek next if you'd like, I never did like the "finding" role...Glad you enjoyed this.

Joy14-
Ain't it grand?  I'm beyond the addiction point here.

Toe-
Psychiatrists and sex therapists?  Passion has become your "cure for all", eh?  ROFL!  If Ron only KNEW how much money he was saving you...Shhhhhh! I didn't say that.  Hate for this forum to become lucrative for someone!  

Seymour-
Thanks for your comment.  We all are but one (hee hee).

PoetFemmeFatale-
Glad you liked!

Rex-
Right on!  That's what makes this forum go 'round.

Martie-
Thanks very much.  Your comments mean a bunch!

This count is wonderful


I was just wondering
Where should i be writing
In the adult poetry group
They are so honest
In the dark poetry
They are so maybe I should be there
In the poetry #6
They are so pure
So where should I be
In a time where
I feel in heaven on earth in hell

"hiding place"

Finding this place came in the nick of time for me, shangrila yes in every way, addiction is hitting it right on the button.
