    Knowing what my partner does while sleep walking I know how bad it can be, a realistic gritty story I enjoyed and I could see that as a short film thank you for sharing

      Thank you very much, I love ravens and have always seen them more than just simple birds, they seem timeless and I tried to capture this

    From sweetwater on Do you see me?

    Wonderful, so sensitively written from the ‘lost’ one’s point of view. The last line particularly grabbed me, now where are my tissues? Sue.

      Thank you, I’m glad you like the perspective I tried to see it from their point of view as well as the suffering of the living

      Hi Peter, thank you I am so pleased you liked the poem, I wrote the first few lines around 3am one sleep free night. Annoyingly most nights are sleep free, perhaps I should get a TV in my bedroom I fall asleep in front of the one downstairs! 🙂 Sue.

        Hi Sue,
        what a good idea, I have a TV in my bedroom ,and I regularly fall asleep in front of that one and the other one too.I feel like sleepy one of the seven dwarfs..Life can be very lonely during those dark sleepless hours.Be lucky,

          Hi Peter, in that case as it obviously works well I will certainly think seriously about one after Christmas.
          I don’t go to bed till 2am ish and usually lie awake cursing untill 6.30am. As you say it’s very lonely in those dark hours. Xx Sue.

    Interesting piece, you paint such a vivid picture that make everything seem real you grab the readers imagination and put their face deep in you reality so they cannot ignore the characters, well done

    From Pelequininwonderland on It's Time To

    Nice work I’m curious with you having a chorus it would seem that you would almost have a tune that the words go to in your head, is it any particular one or is it just something you have in your head? Hope you don’t mind me asking

      Hi Pelequin – a chorus is set to music as I am posting song lyrics like this one as well as poems and prose. Under the photograph is an arrow – click on that and it brings up the sound track! Thanks for the kind words and the visit!

    I like it and while it is not a long piece it still manages to evoke feeling well done

    From mitch on Roses For Ever

    Interesting quirkiness and rhythm to the writing. I enjoyed it but the last para was a bit fulsome with a yarn-ball of loose ends. Great stuff.

    Hello Sue.
    Very timely and evokes the changing seasons. A different style too I notice
    You always produce a nice read.

      Hi Michael, you don’t know how pleased I am that you have left a comment here, not just because I very much appreciate that you have done so, but I have been trying to reply to your message to me a few days ago.
      I don’t know what is going on with UKA but so many glitches keep happening. I tried to message you back to thank you for your very kind message to me, but there is a drop down general message box that is sitting across a third of my reply section which completely blanks out what I am writing and I can only read the last few words of each line I have written. No matter what I do I just can’t remove it.
      I was sorry to hear your wife hasn’t fared as well as you over the years, it must be a struggle from day to day for you both. But please don’t give up on here, even if you don’t write it’s lovely to see you in the comments section. All the very best to you both. Sue xx

    I really enjoyed the first five versus they completely held my attention, but forgive me for saying this but I felt the rest of the poem didn’t quite reach the standard of those first verses. I like the sentiment and advice held within it however.

    From ifyouplease on The eloquence of silence

    self discipline, the “i had better” something we master in silence which we must always keep in mind as the wisest and most moral option if it is not tinctured by cowardice to speak.

  • Ifyouplease

    From ifyouplease on War is a crisis

    crisis in greek is also judgment
    it is a greek word

    a thought-provoking piece,

    “And that the father of all created things is created and uncreated, the made and the maker, we hear him (Heraclitus) saying, ‘War is the father and king of all,’ etc.” Plutarch, de Iside 48, p. 370.

    War between Good and Evil, this is the father of all created things, so we all fight somehow. we are in constant war, deep within our soul heart and mind, for subtle ideas and qualities essential for life and perhaps… the afterlife.
    so what’s the role of peace then?

    War creates the circumstances so that Peace can be reached. without war – the fight against good or evil depending on which side you are – there cannot be Peace.

    we can only wish Good prevails in Peace and War and not be afraid of either.

    Hard and gritty like so many cases I deal with in work. Great short dealing with the stomach-churning horror of child abuse and domestic violence.

      Thank you, Mitch, It must be awful having to deal with such things on a daily basis. It’s not a pleasant subject to write about I know.
