    poised poisonous
    and autodidactic
    I am the septic sceptic
    so heavily cryptic

    diseased gangrenous
    and highly infected
    I am the septic sceptic
    my most critical critic

    and yours

    for I doubt everything
    I question the sky
    the shit who ‘made’ me
    and I openly decry

    the whole fucking lot
    and my reason for being
    this ‘imagined’ pain
    you are clearly not seeing

    dear god (for I will use small case)
    silence me now
    and in which case
    I will readily repent

    feel the love that you sent
    but until that day
    (and actually, either way)

    I will remain the frantic


    septic sceptic

    This is one of your best yet, and a showcase for your wizardry with words and sounds.:smile: :smile:

    As for the feelings that spawned it... I dislike them cause I am too familiar with them, but I understand them, oh I do so understand them.:sad: :sad:

    What a gift you have, my friend.:smile: Superlative in its clarity and wonderfully read-aloud-able.:smile: I should like to hear you give a reading of your works sometime!

    love always,

    I can clearly see and feel your pain - it is NOT imaginary - nor is your reason for being imaginary. I just don't know why some of us have to suffer so from our feelings and our perception of the world around and within us. :-(


    I will be your 'antiseptic' and cleanse your wounds, if you will allow me.

    You are sorry for what?? I still say you write better dead drunk than most of us do sober.:rolleyes: :wink:

    It was still a terrific poem, ya know!!:smile:

    love,

    I just worry myself with the things I can barely remember writing.

    I just worry.

    Please, dear, try not to worry. You may not remember writing it but it was stunning all the same. And that breath you told me you feel, it's not death, it's the wind blowing that "package plane" across the ocean.

    I love you Alison, you're my friend forever. Please don't worry so much - if you like, I can worry for you. I won't worry excessively, but I'd rather do it than you. I care so much about you, I'll quote the Bible: "greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for a friend." And I mean that.

    Now start haunting your mailbox and not your self!

    love,
