    This is probably one of your more simple poems dude. I think it's one of your best. It's just perfect and has a sledgehammer finish.

      Thanks, Craig. Not sure I agree though. I find it far easier to write rhyming poetry/sonnets etc than I do free verse. They actually come far more naturally to me. But I enjoy giving any style a go. Wherever the mood takes me.

      Take care, Craig.

    Excellent as usual. I'm not usually keen on none rhyming but your tone and imagery as always swirl and captivate from the page. Milly x

      I understand, Milly, and to be honest, I couldn't resist throwing in a little rhyme in this one.

      All the best and thanks for your support.

    I am really liking it, you not writing in a specific form lately. The shifting is giving a lot of meaning to your recent writes!!

      Thanks, Star. I like writing in different styles and trying different things. After all, life isn't all about rhyme, I suppose...

      Take care

    Ben.. First I'd like to apologise for missing this... It's an amazing write and I feel you're getting so much more confident at these 'prose' and seeing you throw a little rhyme here and there did make me chuckle because I thought out loud in a cilla black voice.. "that's our Ben" lol
    Take care x

    Congratulations on this one Ben,
    I like the way you use metaphors to describe your misery with winter blues ;)

    Loved the ending to this :) and your use of imagery. How you always bring in nature to your poems.. I liked the expression " the scent of jasmine soaks the air around us " and the " laughing leaves" .....

    Good reading your poems again Ben!! :D
