I don't have a problem with "our backs" as one reviewer did. I visualize you, your missed one, and an entire class in this description of drudgery. It would not work as well as "my back". At first, I thought Miss Me was going to be self-pitying, but got caught up more as I read it and then the last lines brought it all around. This is a love poem.
Ah My dear Mojy, thanks for your great feedback on "Roses" i am glad you enjoyed it somewhat, i I will be returning to see your great works when they are ready. Hope you had a fabulistic christmas and all is well in Mojyland!
Yes, of course you have my permission to use the line; I'm glad that it inspired you. I'm also glad that you enjoyed those writings...They are old ones of mine and yes, I too find phrasing a bit repetitive. Let me know when you finish the piece that the line inspired, I'm interested in reading it.
