Hi, this is the first poem i've read from you. It is so sad and left me a bit speechless as well. Best Wishes...

happy new year

I thank you all very much. Let us show all these butterflies how wonderful they really are.

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

She uses companionship like cigarettes

to fill the malignant moments,

each one leaving her more addicted,

more breathless,

and more powerless than the last.


Wow Jamie, This is absolutely magnificent and to me, so perfectly said in such depth and complete awareness.


In time maybe she will decide her tomorrows

Indeed "the smallest butterfly" eventually must "decide her tomorrows" to be able to continue to flutter into them.

Beautifully written!

Great big hugs my friend

When butterflies emerge, it is the greatest of things.  Life....begins.  This is a beautiful and touching write.  *s*

On the wings of words our spirits fly....and our souls are free.

Well. On my search for the Moment poem I also found this.

Read it properly for the first time I think, because I didn't want to read it before, do you know what I mean? Maybe not.

Think that line from shakespeare about the webs and deceiving and whatnot...

I never thanked you for it, for this hardest poem of yours.

So - months and months later, thank you. You do so much.
