Janet-

this is definitely the most heartfelt,
sad (doesnt even describe) yet beautiful
poems i've ever had the pleasure of
reading. you are an angel on this earth
and everytime i read one of your poems
about him, i feel as if i've too met him.
you have an amazing gift janet but an
even more amazing heart. i am so glad i met
you, and over time i've come to realize
you are truly remarkable!!

take care.
love you.

"Sometimes I feel like
I could bleed forever"

"and I remember thinking
if I held that breath forever ...
I could make time stand still."

"But, angels and butterflies aren't held to mortal time."

"And I wonder does anyone else question
why we feel the need to measure pain?
Why do we mark our losses in the passage of time?"

"you will never fade in me."

"destiny held it's breath
and it will be forever December."

A powerful piece, JM, freeverse-gator... the above lines particularly engaged me and the ending was superb. Thanks for a great read and for the mirror of me that is you.

Free verse does free. I admire those who write it so well, and this is a fine example of what's been bottled up inside of you. Let it out, girl, more!  more!

JM,
You know how I feel about your writings, Winkiewinkie. I think Balladeer said it best.
You are an amazing talent. Sy

Janet,
I think Rex  Alford said it so much better than I ever could so to quote an expert.
"I would not ...even for a moment... relinquish the ache in my heart for the power to forget.

Soft sighs. I loved this line.
"embraced in the ache of missing you."

Write on

To have known such love and to have lost it - to have achieved such a peak and fallen to such a low - breaks my heart in ways I've no words for. I've known the high - know it now - - I've known lows - but none to match this - {{{{{{{{{{{hugs}}}}}}}}}}}} my friend

Sweet Sy ... yes, I do know...and I thank yo so very much for that ..and for the amazing reply..and of course for a *winkiewinkie*...you give them the best  

Keth,... thank you for the poetic quote...and I agree with Rex..a wise poet is he.  
thank you for the wonderful understanding reply.

Bill ... I am so happy to read you saying that you are living in the high of love right now ...and I thank you so  for such a wonderful, sweet reply and for the hug ... and I promise you tho this may read sad...I am not lost in the lows...I celebrate his presence and the time I had...always.

I am so moved and touched by all of these beautiful, understanding replies.

Janet, this as you say 'free-verse' took captive my heart and soul...

All I can say to you is it's exquisite in every word I could not pluck a verse that I adore more than the other as it all just reeled me into feelings more than my words could say to you on screen...

As always dear friend, a gem of a write by such a lovely lady...

Sprayed across my heart and hers
Danced butterflies in the wild
This angel, this woman ,
who loves me with the innocence of a child.

"But, angels and butterflies aren't held to mortal time.

And just like I had
to let go of that breath,
I soon had to let go of you."

Dang me too, thinking of you this evening more than any other.

Martie & Sharon ...

thank you so much for remembering...

ever since I met this special man..."butterfly magic" just happens--little moments in time that gift me with "traces left behind" and this year took its cue as promised...I was driving on the highway just before midnight and could see fireworks going off from the down town festivities..the whole skyline in front of me was lit up...then just as I exited the highway, in someones back yard I saw it...
instead of the usual Christmas decorations of snowmen and Santa Claus...there was a huge Happy New Year sign on a hill and just below it was a large neon purple and gold butterfly/fairy holding a "peace on earth" sign. *smile*

Happy Birthday Vante and thank you ...
for everything you taught me ...I am so much better for your touch.  

Happy New Year girlies.
heart-hugs of the mothy kind.  


Thru the water...thru the rain
To the soul of everything
Throw my heart out on the stones
And I'm almost gone

I find it amazing how they always manage to send just the right sign at the right time.  Well then again, no I don't.     I am so glad you got your sign, but then I know you know you might have, as I know I know I would.
