    I Haven't "spoken" This Yet But I'd Like Some Feedback Nonetheless "i Will Follow You"

    I will follow you.Like a lost puppy whining for a scrap of attention. I will sit up and beg for a morsel of affection.There was time when you held me close. When I lay in your loving embrace, rocked to sleep by your chorus of "I love you's" mixed with the steel-drum beat of my...

    It's Not Just How It's Written

    It's how it's read aloud too. You can give two different people the same poem to read out loud, and the poems can be projected in two completely different ways, just on how the reader says everything. I love hearing poems read with conviction, and passion, and emotion. It...
