Tidal Man

A wave washes over you, before you know the water retreats. It overwhelms you and then it’s gone, Only to return with a greater force. The current pulls you in and you learn to swim, Until the ebb takes away the water. You’re left to stand on ground, not solid though, it’s soft and wet, you slowly s...

Re: a free lunch

Longing may have be a topic that is covered in a million ways, but I certainly could identify with the sentiment (I better hold off with my endless poems on the subject matter then, heh).

Nice work.

Re: Courage to All New Poets

Re: Chicken on a Sunday

Quirky little piece there, Barrie. I won't lie and say I understand what it's about, although my mind filled in the missed Saturday with debauched drinking, but then that probably says more about me, the reader, than you the writer ;-)

I enjoyed it.

Re: Umbrage

Thanks everyone - and thanks for the suggestions Barrie. I initially started out with all my writing to omit punctuation unless needed to make a point, such as the question mark in this case.

There is a certain shadiness
To your behaviour
Hiding away from my sun

Left to shield myself from myself
Your vagueness
Causes umbrage
I shall remain pale too

Very topical, and quite sad. I see what Barrie tried to do with his version, but what I like about Dante's piece is that at first it conjured up images of warm cosy fires, but then I realised it was about solitude in old age and the feeling of warmness I felt turned into coldness in the instance of ...

Hello, be gentle with me ;-)

Hello all I have been searching for a forum like this for a while, glad to have found it. :-) I only started writing poetry this year, partially through discovering poetry in general (yes, I am a very late starter!), partially through having bit of a rough time and needing a release, and it does hel...
