Thanks for the supportive comment. I don't really get that many, and to be honest, that kind of suits me and my poetry. I am the definition of a difficult type, but notwithstanding all of that it's still nice to hear words along the lines of yours every so often.
For the record, Lady of Shalott has vacated this site. You should also look into Loquacious Mind, although he's not around as frequently as most...
There's also O, ANGELO, girlinthephoto, Hollander, Runes, all the english boys (she's not around anymore, but reading her stuff still does it for me), jimi james (I think?).... don't rely on my memory, I'm probably missing a few..
All the good ones are essentially difficult to reach/not around most of the time. This website has essentially become a cache of poetry, 85%~ or more being redundant junk. The rest is out there, the good stuff, you just have to look really hard in hopes of finding it.
I like AlyRose, Lady of Shalott, Raphael, Awkward...
I don't like this site much. It doesn't do much for me, except that it suits me because you get enough time to go back in and work poems out for yourself. I forget that sometimes, and I shouldn't, I should appreciate that more.
On the owl poem, I simply mean that I can't expect the reader to know what I'm talking about, I need to edit in more story there. Because it's about long distance love, so having too much and too little.
Anyway, I could have faved some of your work, I appreciate that you faved some of mine. I don't really want that. I think we could help each other out, to a point, with the words, and that would be good. I used to workshop at other sites where people actually workshop. I thought maybe we could do that kind of thing.This assumes a lot I guess but hey, no harm in putting it out there. Your stuff is out there ;) so I'm not sure how much help I'll be, but I'll offer what I can. Also, if it's no problem: who was it that directed you here?
It's valuable because it's not a poem about love not working out,it's about getting stuck on life circumstance rather than just being happy that you are blessed.
Obviously if the poem took you another place then that;s good to know. I'll go in and fix that.
As for the poem about my daughter, yeah, I know I got that one right because I have read it many times and yet sometimes when I leave it and go back in it will cut me up at the same places. And thanks for dropping your words on that one, I've had three comments on it that were worth a pinch of salt and it was because the writers knew their salt, and or could step past the sadness to acknowledge that it was written. Thanks. :)
Hey guy, thanks for the thoughts on both poems. I truly appreciate it and am excited that you are around. I think you'll be helpful and maybe I can be helpful too. Certainly I'd like to offer some opinions. Could I ask that you just stop there until the way clears for me to drop some thoughts your way. I'm in the middle of trying to make like a phoenix or something. So yeah, I'll catch up soon. Cheers.
