    Wow Ben, this is really deep and personal. I almost felt as though I was eavesdropping on you. Keep fighting the fight. Well done-

    Dear Ben very deep and personal and many of us have fought the fight, struggle with temptation and giving in I certainly have. You have the strenght and keep on writing. All the best to you

    Mentally Ben! Perhaps!

    Physically and in your entirety, this is not you. We have never met and it is unlikely that we shall ever do so, yet I know this is not you.

    Perhaps the shadow of dark thoughts from a mind capable of conjuring visions.

    You do not drink from a tainted stream my friend. You drink from the top of the mountain, where fresh snow melts and gives the most tingling, icy cold, refreshing hydration.

    Drink long and deep my friend.

    Regards as always.

    Deep and meloncolny a dark write that reflects a place magnified by desolate thoughts. Sometimes true brilliance takes a dark curve away from the light but never doubt that love and light surround the talented poet that is you. Your poetry is exceptional. Milly x

    I've often wondered what life would be like if I let it all go, broke all ties, gave up ... it's like you've rummaged about in the dark bits and conveyed it to us here. And it's brilliant!

    Especially this:
    "flammable sick frozen to his clothes, as the tepid
    sunlight breaks the horizon, and breaks
    its promises of warmth again."

    Amazing Ben! :-) x

    Hey Ben I have been gone for a while and it's refreshing to see you're still a genius at conveying what I feel! I'm binge reading all your work. Thank you for all the poems
