what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
their bad advice...
Autumn Sonnet (may Sarton) -
The Autumn Sonnets
If I can let you go as trees let go
Their leaves, so casually, one by one,
If I can come to know what they do know,

Thomas Gray -
To each his suff'rings, all are men,
Condemn'd alike to groan;
The tender for another's pain,
Th' unfeeling for his own.
When an old man died in the geriatric ward of a nursing home in an Australian country town, it was believed that he had nothing left of any value.
Later, when the nurses were going...
Poetry As An Experience -
You must allow the words to sink in, to show you something, to transform you. My favorite poem of all time is about the experience of being transformed...

A courageous young mother

She's my definition of a role model
No older brothers or...

I am the sonnet, never quickly thrilled;
Not prone to overstated gushing praise
Nor yet to seething rants and anger, filled
With overstretched opinions to rephrase;
But on the...

Never using what I knew
The memories overtake me
And I feel I ought to go...

My mind Twisted up
Intertwined into one fantasy
Burying all of my deep emotion because I know the love is not mutual
Shared passion is what I hoped for
Mad love is what I needed...
The fear that binds
Time to unwind
The shadows of doubt
Let the Sunshine out
Holding back for protection from rejection
Just let it go
Love was meant to flow
Mama how could you not see!
The sweet child of what was to be!
Her ignorance! Her shyness!
Prejudicial racial overtones
You helped instill
Blindly we muddled thru
I am very selective about who I add to my circle. My circle is best-friends only, so there's no quick way of getting into my circle. Unless you're an EP regular in the QA section...

Sure my poetry is not great but I still make poetry but I keep it a secret because most of it is about my love and lust for my crushes.
Have you ever lived a poem? I have. First the poem, then the story.
We were very tired, we were very merry—
We had gone back and forth all night on the ferry.

This is my first
Most likely my last
There is no more future
Only my past
It started with one
And ended with ten
Ten on each wrist
And one in my head
The gun is too loud
Recurring nightmares about that day.
That day I told you, that day I showed you,
That I love you.
It meant something to me when I said it.
It meant something to me when I read it...
