    A great piece of free verse Ben, I love the narrative feeling of your thoughts that add gravity to the content. Superb! :-) x

    Hi Ben. This sounds frustrating, trying to grasp onto something that lies in the past. We often try to recreate that magic, but it's hard...

    This is simply stunning.. I will admit i shed a tear or two.. We all seem to hold onto the past in one way or another...
    Well done

    Our past is something else. We can run but not hide. Very touching Ben. All the very best and thank you for sharing

    I dont drink, but several years ago, I was suffering from heart break and one night I drank a bottle of rum... while writing poetry and needless to say I didn't post what was written and I never will... awful stuff (the drink and the poems lol)
    but I relate to this piece and its very powerful!
