I appreciate the choice of your words for the portrayal of your thoughts. And hope - the one thing this poem spoke to me in abundance about - hope is that ruthless ruler of our being to whom at the end of each day, we still subject ourselves to become voluntary slaves. At the heart of it, this poem is beautiful and flows elegantly, like a brook, and once again, your choice of words is well done.
You know what I truly enjoy about your writings, Shane? It's that it always feels like you're pouring your heart, mind, and soul into the pieces and giving us a glimpse of what's inside, just a glimpse. Your writings are wonderful as always. I never read a poem for you just once. I read it once then give myself a day or two then come again. That's how much I love the depth in your poetry.
I enjoyed this so much. And I want to sincerely thank you because I'm trying so hard to get back to writing and your pieces are profoundly helping me do that :)
You have put in your whole heart and soul into it and
brought it out into the open! I like the emotions that has
been not displayed but “said” the feelings felt instead of
just tagged. I also like the break between the stanzas with
the word “drop” running down. This poem though long it
was worth the read!! Excellent!!
