Nan, you can't take Chris anywhere with you anyway.  Look at that baby face of his - he never gets through the door cause no one believes he's of age...  and if he does, he just embarasses you anyway, heck I'm starting to wonder if he's really of age come to think of it!

Just kidding Chris... you know I love you...
hey Kess, move back over...

Christopher, I posted my reply in Open.  "Strong Enough"

How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

How can a guy that has these looks
be fishing with this hook?
A strong and possibly romatic scene
with your words,its every girls dream.
True love is not what one may say
but hold within and brightens the day.
So look with a careful eye,
do not let lonelyness take your pride.
Keep your guard up and fancy your dream
love isn't all that it may seem.

ARH - Sorry I missed you when I replied. You must have snuck in on me whilst I was replying! Thank you! And yes, Elvis has re-entered the building!  

Mike - Oh, shaddap!

Becca - Woo-hoo, (dodging) You didn't think it would be THAT easy, did you???  

Sharon - No, m'lady. 'Tis you who have it wrong. It is you, who are too good for the likes of me.

Ruth - But rumors are a good thing! They stimulate people's brains and give them something to talk about... it's a good booster for cultural relations!!!  

Mariee66 - Well... umm... you can leave your number... umm... but I don't really think that's something you really want to post to the whole world!!!  

Kissner - IS there really a "right" way? I think to experience it is all I ask.

Kess - To be thine enemy, would make me sad indeed. So I think I'll let you get away with this, K?  

Alwye - Now you bring up a VERY good point. I honestly couldn't tell you the answer to that one until the time came to prove it!

Marge - Ah lass, yet you've sent me none? Sigh...   Another smile for you then!

Jeff - Excuse you, and here's your change.

Kathleen - Sigh. Now there's a beautiful response. Indeed, a rose is a beautiful symbol as well as a flower. Yet they too show weakness. Wouldst thou wilt before mine glare, or art thou indeed strong enough?

Jamie - Be happy to introduce you, but methinks the ladies would rather have you present yourself to them!

Aimster - "girl in her right mind..." HAHAHAHA You, m'dear, need to get to know me! Ask anyone who does, and they'll tell you that being in your right mind is a severe detriment when dealing with me!

Nan - It's all Mike's fault, no matter what he tries to claim. See, he has this drinking problem... two beers, and he's on the floor. Then he's all over all the teenage girls. Sigh, kinda sad really, but it's like loving your kid...

Jason - Fine then... friend?... go join Mike and Kess!

Mike - OK EVERYONE! SINCE MIKE'S HERE SLANDERING ME, I FEEL I HAVE TO RISE TO MY OWN DEFENSE. I AM 26 YEARS OLD AND HAVE PROOF! I KNOW I LOOK YOUNG, BUT CONSIDER THAT A BONUS, AS WHEN I GET OLDER, I WILL STILL LOOK GOOD!  

Tara - On my way lady... have you indeed risen to the challenge?  

Compgirl - What a... nice? reply! LOL. What would you suggest? That I go to a bar to meet someone? No, I sincerely think not! I don't go to school. While I like my job ok, it's not where my passion lies, so I won't find anyone to stir my heart there. Aside from slumming around downtown, LOL, where better and what better way, to find someone with whom I share common interests and passions?   And I honestly believe love is what you make of it!

Mike - Haha... you're the one who keeps bumping it up! ROFL! I think you're jealous!!!

Nothing of him that doth fade

Well better late then never my friend. Do you think your ready for me??...lol. Hang on to your hat...here goes nothing.

Am I strong enough to love you?
Is the question that you asked.
I'm strong enough to bear the weight,
Of many who have passed.

My hearts not frail nor innocent,
Nor given without thought.
It out lasts anything but death,
Anything that life has wrought.

It shines through time and distance,
It warms the very soul.
It handles anything that comes,
If truth would be your goal.

Few things can defeat my love,
Lies, deceit and fraud.
If you really want my love,
Go where few have traud.

Show patience, kindness, truth and love,
In everything you do.
Teach me that a faith in you,
Will keep me shining too.

Am I strong enough to love you?
I am and always will be.
What I really need to know,
Are you strong enough to love me?

Well the last stanza didn't come out the way I wished it to be but what do you expect at the spur of the moment...lol.

Loves and hugs my friend.

This poem is just what women crave genuine
love in other words the real thing. I found it very romantic.
   How beautiful to express ones self so deeply.

Iím strong enough and brave enough
To love you for my own
And I would stand and face each dawn
With strength youíve never known

You speak of fate and fear and weight
Annoying thoughts for sure
These burdens that concern your mind
Ones I already bore

I could provide a soulmate
For your wondrous poet pen
And make the words spew forth
Like cooling mountain springs again

I have the nerve, I have the guts
To extract your finest jewel
To wring the elegance and grace
From out your spiritís pool

To make your trembling hand remain
As steadfast as your mind
To keep your footsteps on the path
And never look behind

So find your one great precious love
More true than any other
And I will love you like a son
Iíll be your second mother

Liz

My goodness!!! (or rather, with me, it's probably really bad...)  

serenity - Ahh, and what a sweet reply, I'll not deny, it caught my eye!

Kess - Dream on.

Marilyn - !!! WOW! You're still amazing girl! But we've been over this before... I know I'm strong enough... but could you really, I mean really handle me??? Hmm?

Gen - You missy, after all the effort I've put into being nice and replying kindly to your poems lately, stab me in the back? Et tu Brute? You fiend... I am quite sure that whatever you might write in "response" is not going to be pretty. I remember the last time you used me in your poetry... I still feel like a virtual John Bobbit!

Rosebud - Crave? Desire? Want, need? What does being male or female have to do with it?   I think we ALL need love!!!

Irie - And what a response!!! My goodness! I feel overwhelmed by the talent that's responding to this! I'm glad it inspired some of you to let flow from the pen words of caring, kindness and strength!!!  

Jason - Femme said she thinks you're a hunk! (hehehe)

Liz - Last, DEFINITELY not least. Luv, you've got the (non-existant) prize for best response! You have it right on the nose here, realize that the strength required for love doesn't have to come from a romantic interest, (though I know you want me!) You've got it "mom," though you better watch it...LOL, people might get the wrong idea if I start calling you that!!!

Oh Christopher...(handing you tissue!)  You poor little innocent troll!    ACK  Don't even act all nice - although I know what an effort that is for the likes of you - - (ahem)  Although, I have been *blessed* by your comments of late!     I am truly humble that you would take the time...  ROFLMAO  

HEY JASON - Where the heck are you?  I think your idea was stupendous!  I'll find you on Yahoo, and we'll discuss strategy, ok?     Be thinking....

...and Chris, you mean you haven't told him all the horrible things about me yet???  I can't believe it - YOUR friends talking to ME??  Man, you are a cool guy, I suppose.     BTW, that bobbit thing, well, I've tried to write some nicer ones since, and you ran off screaming into the woods - so there. (sticking tongue out!)  

JASON -  OH JASON !!!      Come 'mere.....let's have some fun at Chris' expense.....ROFLMAO !!
I wanna fix him up REAL good....hehehehe  Love you Christopher, always have!!!  LOL      (shining halo, and fluffing wings...)

Hmmm Like I have told you numerous times my friend, nothing scares me nor shocks me. I have no doubt that I could handle you. You see, I too fly free and I have to follow my own path. It is in the acceptance of eachother where love lives. If we can all learn how to know someone and learn from them, grow with them and accept them for who and what they are, then we can know true love. Trying to change someone of cage them is how to kill love and the spirit. When we learn how to listen and accept our difference is when the world will become a better place to live and we can all find happiness and fulfillment.

You my friend are a gift beyond words and a spirit that needs to be free. Always know that you are a friend to me and I do love you already.   Without the pieces people bring into our lives we could never be complete.

This one was drawing so much attention I just HAD to see what it was about.

I like it... although if I were to write such a poem at the present time it would probably read:

Are you stong enough to love me,
Can you live with such a bore?
Can you do without the luxury,
In hopes of finding something more?

[lol]

Sorry, bout that.. just in a mood today.  I like your poem though, all questions I've asked before... well.. except the "flies freely" part... that's just a recent development, that I can't really afford to entertain.   Anyways... later.

May all those you meet through your journey in life
be "strong" enough to love you.
For if they're not, they will never fully know
the beauty of your soul.
The soul you've written from here.

Beautiful poem.
