Unspoken Words (Poetry) - 1/28/2008 8:38:56 PM|
Yes, you are right, Michael. There is great power in the silence and the exchange of knowing looks between intimates. So much is said in our body language that never reaches our lips. Well done.
Unspoken Words (Poetry) - 11/3/2007 4:59:33 AM
I'm very late reviewing this poem, "Unspoken Words", but I just wanted to say what a meaningful poem it is. There is great enlightenment available through observations of body language, and your poem captures the essence of it. Great write.
Hope to see more of your work soon.

I have heard these unspoken words for so long and yet you have put them in words. They hurt and they love yet all the while they are just there giving us fear and hope and pain. You have truely captured what many have felt.

This is a very real write. The last part really gets to me it's very true and sad. things like that happen all the time and when I see it it makes me angry. What is wrong with the mothers of them kids? If anyone ever touched my child they would die.
You provoke many feelings with this write.

Indeed there is silence and there is crossing the otherside of the street...Poignant message..
Unspoken Words (Poetry) - 3/23/2007 7:15:57 PM
unfortunately, the unspoken words of abuse roar much too loudly and much too deep ...
caring and powerful poetry, Michael ...

Yes, it's very important to have that innate sense of what's being felt. silence is golden at the right time.

Unspoken Words (Poetry) - 3/23/2007 8:35:17 AM
This is oh so true...sometimes the silence of no words hurt a lot but yes, I've understood my friends & husband at times by only a look. A great poem.
Unspoken Words (Poetry) - 3/23/2007 7:23:11 AM
How true, and how we all often very sadly, just look the other way.
Unspoken Words (Poetry) - 3/23/2007 7:19:02 AM
Unspoken words sometimes hurt much more than the spoken ones.
But when it come to the unspoken words from a child it hurts even more.
This poem says it all.
Unspoken Words (Poetry) - 3/23/2007 7:13:41 AM
Oh Michael, this is so sadly true. So much is said with unspoken words, even more than with words, sometimes. You've captured it so well. A powerful write full of wisdom.

A thorn gives pain, and so a sudden absence, let you pen do the crying because among us you will never be alone.
My Heart Want Let Me (Poetry) - 3/21/2007 10:14:02 AM
Painful to read but in time the heart will give into love once more. Though it feels like it never will. Beautiful write Michael.

My Heart Want Let Me (Poetry) - 3/21/2007 9:34:26 AM
recovery from a bad love affair takes time. it sounds so trite to say it will get better but truth...it will
Selfish (Poetry) - 3/21/2007 5:08:39 AM
I'm sure many could relate..I think priorities go askew and some do not know how to fix it...
Selfish (Poetry) - 3/21/2007 4:43:33 AM
You've touched on a subject that many can fall victim to...I choose old sofas and used cars to stay home with my children...a one income situation tends to cause a short-change at the end of the month but the smiles make up for it! Bigtime! I'm enjoying the gold another way!
Love and Peace~
Selfish (Poetry) - 3/20/2007 8:05:30 PM
Time waits for no one! Selfish people don't get it...too sad
Excellent poem Michael...
Selfish (Poetry) - 3/20/2007 11:46:02 AM
I've spent too much of my life trying to breathe in that "millionaire." I have come to realize that money and success is not nearly so important as love and doing what is necessary to guard it and keep it safe. This poem reminded me of that lesson. well done Michael!
Selfish (Poetry) - 3/20/2007 9:57:58 AM
WOW Michael this is reality for many of us
I think some times we tend to work to much
To have a better life and yes
Sometimes we are a little selfish and we
We don't spend enough time with our love ones!
Excellent message within this write
I truly love this poetic thoughts
Love And Peace to you my friend....Morning star
Selfish (Poetry) - 3/20/2007 7:23:04 AM
Outstanding write Michael
Wanting more time together is not selfish
I went through live working two jobs
raising 3 kids, never seeing enough of them
we wanted more time together
But there was none, not enough time in a day
the out come is an empty nest, kids fathering thier own now
they learned from us they make "time" for their kids
and each other
Peace be with you
Selfish (Poetry) - 3/20/2007 5:18:50 AM
If everyone, men/women included would spend as much time adoring each other as they do when they first met, divorce won't be so popular. holly
Selfish (Poetry) - 3/20/2007 4:40:58 AM
an interesting and well done piece of work. yes, it is too bad that more do not take more time with things...Perhaps if more concentrated on understanding instead of aquisition, it would be better.
Selfish (Poetry) - 3/20/2007 1:55:10 AM
Hmm we see this happening all to often in society today. We have lived to a time when many people think of nobody but themselves. Marriage vows were once sacred and still today there remains some whom cling to their promises, but others who think nothing more of them than words that were muttered and not spoken from the heart. A great write my friend, one that makes one stop and appreciate their home, family, and twenty eight years of marriage!
Selfish (Poetry) - 3/19/2007 2:15:31 PM
We have a proverb in my language, Somali, that translates into this poem. 'It is easy to find someone who meets all your criteria for marriage, but it is difficult to meet each other's expectations once you get married'. The need for more time, more attention, more love, more money, more of everything is just insatiable.
Thank you for this beautiful one.
Selfish (Poetry) - 3/19/2007 5:23:20 AM
Powerful poetry, Michael. Much wisdom in this write. Sometimes people get so caught up in life they look over the important things. Excellent poetry with a powerful message!
Selfish (Poetry) - 3/19/2007 3:22:51 AM
Those that haven't been there throw the first stone!
No words to describe the out of the blue Dear John syndrome.
I wrote a poem titled Man is a Cold Winter, I should had said some Women are that too.
As always a meaningful word from Michael.
Selfish (Poetry) - 3/18/2007 7:09:25 PM
when you don't take time to appreciate what you have, before you know it, it's gone ...

Wise warning for those in this cituation.
Selfish (Poetry) - 3/18/2007 7:57:49 AM
Excellent thoughts, Michael, and steeped in wisdom. Far too often, that's what happens.
Selfish (Poetry) - 3/18/2007 7:32:48 AM
A lot of truths in this one Micheal. Well done.
Selfish (Poetry) - 3/18/2007 7:32:01 AM
Yeah, and I wondered why she was spending all the money, not coming home a few times a week. Now I don't think she was at her mums, but with that fat *************** ******* Think I'll marry the mirror next time..
Selfish (Poetry) - 3/18/2007 7:24:08 AM
Selfishness kills marriage and if the couple doesn't get over it , it will kill any future relationships as well after the divorce. Like you said then you move on, without a lesson in selfishness, and start over again.
Selfish (Poetry) - 3/18/2007 6:49:55 AM
This is powerful Michael
Selfish (Poetry) - 3/18/2007 6:38:05 AM
WOW Michael this is reality for many. We get so caught up in the daily agendas and goals we forget to nuture the relationship yes some what selfish...Excellent capture in this one. Hope some read before to late.
Broken (Poetry) - 3/17/2007 12:00:37 PM
This poem is very deep, honest, and
just mind blowing. Your very honest its very true
What your words captured Always negative
And always telling that person your a nobody
You will never amount to anything in life
Life is to short if there's no love they should go
Their separate ways!!
Excellent message within this great write!!
Love And Peace To You Always..Morning Star
Broken (Poetry) - 3/17/2007 11:06:37 AM
"Your not good enough
Your not going anywhere
Your not going to amount to anything"
In these verses, you mean to write "you're." I know these sentiments that you share, Michael. Help me as well when I make typos, please. I always appreciate it. Love and peace to you,
Broken (Poetry) - 3/17/2007 10:34:55 AM
Although we may love a person, a negative relationship doesn't do anyone any good. Best for both parties to go their own way. Life is too short and we deserve to be happy.
Love & Light always and in all ways,
To Be Loved (Poetry) - 3/17/2007 8:25:04 AM
Each time we are touched by love leaves its mark upon our soul.. lovely poem Michel.

Oh my..well done...Hugsssssss
Broken (Poetry) - 3/16/2007 5:19:56 PM
Dear Michael, I can certainly relate to this one; it too sounds like my first marriage, and I was broken in body mind and soul.holly
Broken (Poetry) - 3/16/2007 11:07:01 AM
OMG how well do I know this....it's like my life came to live....so vividly.....and I try to keep up but damn busy drowning...bigtime!!
And God knows I don't want to bring my children down...but someway or another there must be SOME light at the end of this darkness!!
Broken (Poetry) - 3/16/2007 4:27:49 AM
Sounds alot like my first marriage. I truly was broken, in more ways than one.
Broken (Poetry) - 3/16/2007 2:27:58 AM
It is like reading what my mother alway said.
She bend me, but couldn't broken my spirit.
Well said my friend, well said.
Broken (Poetry) - 3/15/2007 8:04:59 PM
when the spirit breaks down, the heart and soul are torn into shreds ... it's the role of a poet, through words and actions, to put it all together again ...
Broken (Poetry) - 3/15/2007 7:16:59 PM
You described well the dance of two people in an abusive relationship.
Broken (Poetry) - 3/15/2007 5:13:38 PM
Broken to move on towards wholeness...
A realistic write Michael, about oh too many lives in the habit pattern of negativity!
Thanks for sharing.
Love, Suzie :-D
Broken (Poetry) - 3/15/2007 5:00:00 PM
It can be short lived as well. Broken means apart. Put it back together. A little soul glue works wonders Michael.
Broken (Poetry) - 3/15/2007 4:38:38 PM
Geez oh man, no one should live like that, Michael -- a very powerful poem describing an all-to-common existence. I do hope it isn't a personal account! Well done.
Love & a hug,
Broken (Poetry) - 3/15/2007 3:56:47 PM
This poem spells negativity with capitol letters, and anyone living
like this is in misery.Very sad, but excellent poem Michael! Eileen
Broken (Poetry) - 3/15/2007 3:53:27 PM
Sad write, but a write that describes so many today...for there seems to be so much dispair and bitterness in our world today, marriages falling apart, families disolving before our very eyes...sad write, but well written my friend!
Broken (Poetry) - 3/15/2007 3:25:32 PM
I certainly hope this isn't based on reality, but have a feeling it is. Words can hurt as much as fists, but leave deeper scars...a poignant, heartbreaking write.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :(
I know how this feels--went through it myself.
This Fog (Poetry) - 3/15/2007 12:38:33 PM
When the fog lifts...it always turns out to be a bright sunshuny day!!

"oh I know about fogy day in life
Some days you just want to stay in bed
Because the cloud of fog is to thick
Making it hard to focus on making life decisions
A very profound write with a very good message
Within this very interesting write
Love And Peace To You My Friend...Morning Star
This Fog (Poetry) - 3/15/2007 8:49:12 AM
Loved the methaphor of this poem...our minds are like the fog, sometimes uncertainties cloud our thinking and makes it hard for pure concentration.
This Fog (Poetry) - 3/15/2007 8:11:43 AM
It would be nice if the fog would lift every now and then. We are expecting a very big snow storm tomorrow and I sure hope they are wrong with that forecast.
This Fog (Poetry) - 3/15/2007 7:51:52 AM
I enjoyed this metaphor, Michael. At times our lives really are like the fog. Well done, my friend!
This Fog (Poetry) - 3/15/2007 7:44:29 AM
The fog lifts fairly fast outside when the sun comes out, but when its inside one's head---such as from a sleepless night--its slow to lift. Felt that way this morning, too.
This Fog (Poetry) - 3/15/2007 7:24:59 AM
This poem make me remember like my own decision days sometime can get in a kind of sticky fog that you can pull totally away.
This Fog (Poetry) - 3/15/2007 5:48:22 AM
May the Fog soon lift for all of us, Michael.
This Fog (Poetry) - 3/15/2007 5:45:43 AM
But think how pretty it is, and how much more it will be when it lifts! Such a lovely little ode to the current conditions we're having. :) Like you looked out my window--! Enjoyed.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

you bring out the essence of love in a relationship quite eloquently, Michael ...
To Be Loved (Poetry) - 3/14/2007 7:28:20 AM
So very true....but seldom found...if it ever does come your way hold on tight my friend!!
Sighhhhhh....the magic of love!!
To Be Loved (Poetry) - 3/14/2007 6:48:30 AM
Love...sometimes is like slamming a revolving door shut.
Sometimes...somebody loves us.
To Be Loved (Poetry) - 3/13/2007 9:20:47 PM
It's great to be loved
I hope it never ends
Excellent write Michael

How beautiful, this one brought my tears.
To Be Loved (Poetry) - 3/13/2007 1:43:54 PM
I can appreciate this poem.
To Be Loved (Poetry) - 3/13/2007 12:12:15 PM
It's over-rated is love, can you imagine saying to your best mate after years he max i never wanna see you again..Women do, once they've taken you to the cleaners..
Today...A New Beginning (Poetry) - 3/13/2007 11:43:19 AM
very touching poetic expression Michael, I always say happiness is a choice, one hard to keep but once we make up our mind, this will be our main focus, focus pocus, pocus focus, hocus pocus
To Be Loved (Poetry) - 3/13/2007 11:38:00 AM
great poetic subject to read and think about Michael, almost seems like a fantasy
To Be Loved (Poetry) - 3/13/2007 10:19:03 AM
Yes if you're going to love someone
Then you have to be willing to
Go above and beyond the call of duty,
Love beyond all boundaries love is not just
A word its to completely give your
Heart and soul equally
Excellent...Michael~ Hugs to you!
To Be Loved (Poetry) - 3/13/2007 7:08:42 AM
Michael, this is truly beautiful. One specific line of your poem says so much, "Not just to be told, but to be shown." Actions speak so much louder than words ever can. I wrote a poem about that, myself, called "No More Words, Show Me". Again, this is truly beautiful.
To Be Loved (Poetry) - 3/13/2007 6:58:41 AM
Well said, Michael. You're so right.
To Be Loved (Poetry) - 3/13/2007 6:31:47 AM
You nailed this one Michael. So true.
To Be Loved (Poetry) - 3/13/2007 6:16:08 AM
A gift to have, a blessing to hold
It truly is a blessed gift, and as you say, one that should be cherished.

No Regret (Poetry) - 3/9/2007 9:56:21 PM
You are correct most woman want a
Man to love the ground she walks on
and to love her and romance her to show that
she is the most important person in his heart
and it sound like to me that she head found that in you!!
She lost a great men theirs only a few left
In this world and she was lucky to have found
One,she will regret this through life!
Very well written and expressed emotions!!
Love And Peace to You..Morning Star

Wow, so there are men like that still around! Love this my friend, what woman wouldn't appreciate all of the love, compassion, respect, and extra attention and pampering? You shouldn't have any regrets dear friend...you have a kind and giving heart. Outstanding write! I am sure that many could take a few lessons from this write...enjoyed!
No Regret (Poetry) - 3/8/2007 6:25:06 PM
The key is the "no regret" part, Michael. It seems to me that in a relationship, "love" ought to go both ways. Nicely done. Thank you. Love and peace,
No Regret (Poetry) - 3/8/2007 2:49:42 PM
Ahhh, there really ARE romantic men still alive in this jaded old world. You have a golden heart and a loving soul, dear Michael. It isn't you who should change. You are not living in a fantasy world -- she was just the wrong type of woman for you. The love you showed her should have come back to you ten-fold. You deserve it.
No Regret (Poetry) - 3/8/2007 11:37:22 AM
The poet is right to have no regrets, regardless of the outcome, don't ever regret showing love and kindness to another -even if it is never returned, because it is in the act of giving that we show our capacity and inherent need to love -just as He has told us in His word. It's always the right thing to do. Well done!
No Regret (Poetry) - 3/8/2007 9:08:55 AM
You did so much...and I agree...no regret is good!!
Not sure why but seems to me someone was ungrateful...even after receiving all...without giving back...bittersweet offering to me!!
No Regret (Poetry) - 3/8/2007 5:39:45 AM
No regrets, still when hearing her foot steps getting farther and farther away on its one way only trip.
No Regret (Poetry) - 3/8/2007 4:04:10 AM
It truly sounds like you shouldn't have any regrets. And it truly sounds like you will find your soulmate yet.

Michael, You did as your heart told you to do. Your compassion inspired your goodness. Your poetry is testimony to your heart's cry. I'm sorry. Keep writing and you may find your answer within your own words.
No Regret (Poetry) - 3/7/2007 2:55:46 PM
Some women don't know when they've got it made. I hope you never change because one day the right woman will come your way and you'll be perfect.
Trust (Poetry) - 3/7/2007 2:28:15 AM
Some listen to the heart, others to their guts.
One to the romantic side promising something from the fantasy realms where all wishes are granted.
The other are the harsh reality that the guts knows, because you had fall before and it remembers how the pain feels.
One listen to one or the other, what comes after is called experience.
Trust (Poetry) - 3/6/2007 11:33:42 PM
Truer words so seldom mentioned. Tug of war with the heart strings.
Trust (Poetry) - 3/6/2007 9:37:14 PM
you have conveyed your feelings quite well, Michael ...
Trust (Poetry) - 3/6/2007 4:48:18 PM
When we listen to our hearts then we end up hurting the more...when we listen to out heads we survive to love again.
Trust (Poetry) - 3/6/2007 12:22:56 PM
Trust (Poetry) - 3/6/2007 12:01:30 PM
Oh yes no love can survive without trust!!
You have to trust in so many ways...most of all yourself...and THAT is a hard thing to do...when the heart breaks the trust get crushed...I know!!
Hope this make sense!!
Trust (Poetry) - 3/6/2007 9:42:44 AM

Trust (Poetry) - 3/6/2007 8:13:39 AM
Listen to your heart
I believe that, and to our instincts. And if we listen long and hard enough to both of them, I believe they will show us the way.
Trust (Poetry) - 3/6/2007 7:32:04 AM
Without trust it counts for nowt, and real trust takes a while to build nowadays, this idiot trusted way to easily....
Almost Spring (Poetry) - 3/6/2007 5:13:03 AM
Your poem makes me feel spring really is around the corner, Michael. Excellent piece -- however, when I peek outside my window, I can still see two feet of snow ... and the thermometer says it's six degrees out today (sigh) ...
Life's To Short (Poetry) - 3/5/2007 9:30:46 PM
Yes indeed, life is too short, Michael; and you've captured the sense of it in this down-to-earth sagacious write. Well done.

Absolutely agreed upon. You said it perfectly in this inspirational write. If you don't take a chance in life, then you never know what the outcome would have been. I really love this one Michael.
Almost Spring (Poetry) - 3/4/2007 6:46:58 AM

These Silent Days (Poetry) - 3/4/2007 6:09:24 AM
I know not of depression but I do know of silent days..I've learned to accept them as part of my journey... nice work here.
Life's To Short (Poetry) - 3/4/2007 2:05:17 AM
Fine words to those that burn their candle from both ends.
Sometimes a pinch of sadness remembering those that lived without brakes, can slow the neck-breaking pace of oneself.
Life's To Short (Poetry) - 3/3/2007 5:12:31 PM

Almost Spring (Poetry) - 3/3/2007 5:03:01 PM
Yes! Michael, you bring those feeling flowing...
Not that long to go...

Listening to the concerts again
In the wide open plane
I can't wait til spring is here again!

Excellent write. Great message throughout.
Life's To Short (Poetry) - 3/3/2007 1:14:06 PM
Michael, your poem has so much truth in it...it comes from the heart and it touched mine. Life is so short and we don't appreciate it until we are older...and then there isn't much strength left to enjoy.
Life's To Short (Poetry) - 3/3/2007 11:18:59 AM
Thanks for sharing this inspiring write!!
Life's To Short (Poetry) - 3/3/2007 11:08:21 AM
Yes, dear Michael... to soak up each sunbeam and each raindrop that may be shed upon the path, and to love, as we walk, as if each embrace... each sunbeam... each raindrop, were indeed the first or the last, yes... this is to soak up the wonderful, true essence of... life. Wise, and very beautiful.
Almost Spring (Poetry) - 3/3/2007 9:51:02 AM
When the waters flow,

Michael this is such a heartfelt piece....I can relate mate...although still married...it does not make the pain less...I guess it's worse!!
At times like this I wish death would take over...that it would make things less sore inside for everyone involved!!
Broken Heart (Poetry) - 2/28/2007 8:55:07 AM
Michael, I felt this one and I think all of us have felt this way, from time to time. All we can do is to focus on what we stil have and let the rest of it go. Deeply moving, well structured poem.
Broken Heart (Poetry) - 2/28/2007 8:06:03 AM
Sometimes love is like a pricking rash which needs a good massage with the harsh brush of get on with your life.
At first, it hurts like hell, but after a while the pain subsides and the rash is gone.
Your skin are now ready for the next rash!
Falling from love is like falling from a horse, don't think! get on the saddle again.
Sandness and solitude is a bad bad combination.
Broken Heart (Poetry) - 2/28/2007 5:32:28 AM
Feelings of sadness permeate your poem, but with flecks of hope for strength and forward motion. I love those flecks, in your poem and in my own life.
These Silent Days (Poetry) - 2/27/2007 11:58:31 PM
How sad. One can be alone, yet not be lonely. Never allow time to slip through your fingers. Life is so short as it is.
