Dawn Eclipse - - Thank you. I don't write "dark" poetry often, as I prefer to look to the brighter side of life, but occasionally I do splurge. When I do, it feels pretty good.
Ruth - - Even in sadness, one can rejoice. Always remember that girl.
Janet - - Probably my favorite stanza too. So glad you're always here girl!
Sven - - True. Sometimes sacrifices are made & we don't understand what for. I truly believe that someone higher up is there to "move" us when we head in the wrong direction, and sometimes it's a painful "move", but always for the best.
Walt - - hehe Glad you were "wowzered"....
serenity - - Lucky for you! LOL I've been crossed off the sacrificial list and added to a new one instead... It never ends...
danny - - *curtsies* and a big thank you!
First Knight - - Wow, quite a compliment sir! I'm quite honored to know you "look me up"....
Thanks to each and every one! It's amazing to me how many forks and valleys and hills there are in life, and wow, I'm just about exhausted from the hike! Which is why I decided to lay down on this here altar....sheesh. Anyway, thank you all!
"Laugh and the world laughs with you..." cry, and you're all alone. My version - pFF
