This is just lovely...I signed in earlier simply to nominate it only to find someone had beaten me to it. It's a very honest, raw and emotional write and...if it's not on the front page next week then I will be on here making some serious noise!
Maryanne, This poem is so honest and real and i love the story you tell here. I truly believe that the best poems are not filled with cliches or metaphors, its based on reality, and you have written this well.
This poem is very raw and honest; filled with vulnerability in every word written. Sometimes it is not really about what the poet writes but more about how they make you feel - and you have made me feel both blue and calm at the same time (and this, to me, is incredibly special).
This deserves the full score for your courage and sincere truthfulness in it. Keep writing. :D
