Hello...where the heck have you been hiding? I don't comment unless the member is signed in at the same time as me and...that can be a problem for anyone out with Australia but...here you are in my own country and...I've missed you thus far...anyway...nothing short of brilliant is this poem...it could do with a little more punctuation and...I really hate using it myself but..certain styles need it and this is one of them..I really love this poem and...will nominate it when the weekend freeze is lifted...I'm gonna be watching out for you now :)
Actually...I still had a vote left so...nominating this...judges...this needs to be on the front page...
Hi. I've been in Sydney...working, coming home...trying to sleep but have failed miserably at that lately haha. Thank you VERY much for commenting and nominating it - it's really unexpected! I've fixed some punctuation in there. I wrote it while half asleep. It was inspired by someone I met on here yesterday actually. She told me her story and it lead to this. I normally write songs but poems come around here and there :)
Once again, thank you very much for giving this a read!
This is going to be one of those poems that I will stalk on here...honestly I love it soooo much and...if I could give you extra points for spelling bare correctly (as opposed to bear which I find even published authors are using (Jodi Picoult for example) I would...a bear is an animal after all...anyway..I really do hope the judges have a good read at this one...
Thank you kindly! Unlike some of my others, this one just flowed right out. The ones that come from the heart, are based on actual happenings or truths and hold a close connection with what I and others experience from day to day, are often the ones that have the most impact on others. I don't mean to sound conceited or anything, but it's true for a lot of writers on here and I'm sure they will attest to it too :)
Thanks once again for giving my work a chance and a read! :)
