Drowned again my love regains
On my face your touch remains
Only now like a shell on a distant shore
No waves crashing down like they did before

And heaven begins where I end and you stepped in …

    yeah i know what you mean… i got into a rush with a lot of my other poems and wrote them and i got mad. i didnt think they were very good a lot of people said they liked them but i read some other peoples poems and i thought that mine were like chicken scratch compared to theres so i deleted them…

  • Ya dag!! I think we ALL feel that way about own own works …. be it poems, photography … or even just oirselves sometimes. Life can be a real hard Gig sometimes … but we get thru …. as long as we can express … who else can judge who we are …. but ourselves Karla. Easier said than done … I know!!

    yeah it is easier said than done but life wouldnt me a mystery without things like that. If we had all the answers to every situation and knew everything about the past present and future life would be so boring…. Like love and Pain you cant apreciate love without having pain…. That gives me another poem idea lol

  • OH Karla!!! That is so true!!! Pain hurts so bad … but gives so much perspective!!

    You have all the girls swooning at your feet again, you smooth talker!!!

    It’s hard for me to believe that a man can actually express himself in such a beautiful way.
    Not that they do not have feelings of course. I just thought they would rather go to the bar for a drink with the guys, you know? ( that’s what I usually do) LOL….. pain..what pain?
    All in moderation of course…………….. seriously: you have the market cornered Craig, sheer genius!

  • VBS Awww Thanks Tracey. {{{hug}}} There is only one woman I want to swoon (well I don’t want her to swoon!!) {{{{{hug}}}}
