Well, I was going to leave you a comment on Your Ex, My Enemy but I couldnt get to the comment box. I know how it feels tho. My fiance was my first, but I wasnt his. Im not sure even who his was. But, there is this girl at work that, at one point in time, he slept with. I just dont like thinking or even seeing all the girls he has been with. He doesnt understand how it makes me feel. Makes me feel like im gettin sloppy seconds...well...7ths...maybe? I dont know. It just hurts really bad and I cant get him to understand. I hate it that Im or rather was so inexperienced. Makes me feel like Im not that great and that he has had better, tho he says he hasnt. THere is always that doubt. Its like *Yeah rite. Im so inexperienced and you've been with all these girls who KNEW what they were doin, you had to have better* Sometimes I just wish he wouldnt lie to me and tell me im the best he's had. Makes me feel horrible cuz you know he prolly told that to ALL the girls he's had...ANyways sorry for keeping you. THis just been on my mind for a while now and your poem went RIGHT along with it.
Thank you for commenting on my latest post, Too Many Tears. We are no doubt on opposites sides politically speaking, but I respect your willingness to share your thoughts. I'm old and have seen many wars. This poem reflects on the state of war in general more than the current conflict in Iraq. I truly feel that no one really wins any war as the losses of life hurt both sides; we might agree that it is very sad to have to bury our young men and women. Sharon
In response to your comment on "I Miss You", even I look back and wonder how I wrote that. In fact, most poetry I write, I look back and wonder the same thing. Sometimes it just hits me, and something amazing happens (I guess this is why I love writing).
As for "The Track With No End", this piece is very, very close to my heart and your compliments made me very happy.
And lastly, like I told SanctityExposed on my piece "What I Do Best", it is more of a personal piece (actually, all of my work is). I never have written a poem in hopes of someone relating or someone liking it, that just happens. I DO agree the poem doesn't flow exceptionally well and I DO agree it certainly isn't my best piece, but it IS how I feel, and I can't change that (if that makes sense).
All the same, I thank you again for your honest and kind words, and I will definitely squeeze in some time to read your work today.
