There is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar.

I noticed I never did really say how much I like this.
This one is deserving of a Satpsych

This is Kamla's most sensitive being
This is a beautiful heart full of love, that mourns for love
This is writing at its best
An exquisitly touching piece of poetry
My arms reach halfway round the world to warm your heart
LOve you

Kamla, you write life like no one can, and I commend you for the feelings you made me deal with in this poem.  It was familiar to me your duties, and painful as well.  It was also nice to hear of another who had gone through it.  I am so sorry however that this has been your responsibility at such a young age.  I wish your Mother knew just how much you truly love her, but then perhaps she does.  Thank you for sharing a part of you with me.

~*~  May the spirit of this season live in your heart all year through ~*~

What a write!  I could feel the powerlessness of someone who is watching from the outside while a loved one wanders down a self-destructive path.  Good job!

January comes, and a new year
and I wonder - are you still
in November?

I can only echo Elizabeth - This is writing at its best. From reading all the comments, I know this is intensely personal... but with each picture, you drew the reader farther into her life and made us care more. You've superbly depicted a sorrow beyond imagination... my sympathy and admiration are both yours.

Chris, duh..you are so cheesy..

Severn, a chill came over my face as i read it...and i think this should be the highest compliment that i can pay someone since very few poems impress and touch me at the same time...

it sounds lame, i know but...
