Verses of love
Have evaded me for ages.
It seems they may be fleeing
Forever.
Could it be something in me?

Flowing spirits surround me
Their battle scars stitched,
Healed by others' words and love.
Why have I left
This field of destruction
Trailing behind me;
Haunting my thoughts?

Did I play too long?
My punishment for doing
Unto others what they have done to me?
Destined to never know
What he could mean to me.
Bound by this circle
Strangling me slowly.

 ...every moment of every day...
your still with me in every way.
every poem and song...
every rhyme and verse...
your still here...like a beautiful curse.
your my inspiration, your my fire...
your words fill me with poetic desire.
Every moment of every day...
your still with me in every way.
Janet Marie
*I miss you baby...
I love you, always.*

Thank you, Janet Marie.  Your replies always "lift my spirits" so to say.  You and my poetry, very therapeutic.    I need it, it seems I having trouble "breathing" lately.
