    Such a powerful and pain-filled poem, Olivia. Sail away in that lovely sailboat and leave it all behind.

    Like any other phase, all I can say is, this too shall pass…
    But the fact remains that your creativity is absolutely LIMITLESS!! A fantastic piece of work, my dear…
    You really ARE a wonder of wonders.. for reasons more than one!

      Like any other phase, all I can say is, this too shall pass…

      Thank you My Dear.. clinging on in hope!

      But the fact remains that your creativity is absolutely LIMITLESS!! A fantastic piece of work, my dear…

      Now.. now.. I am gloating already! I am trying to dig my memory whatever I used to do in my growing up years.. All the stuff here is a part of it πŸ™‚

      You really ARE a wonder of wonders.. for reasons more than one!

      Okay, now I am high.. (without feeling warm- like you do with Vodka πŸ™‚ )

      You have been both kind n generous with your words to me!
      Many Thanks n (not so) warm- (‘coz it’s summer) hugs xoxox

    Yes, a good one, Olivia. Nice layout, and the message of moving on comes through clearly. Well done!



    May 16, 2011 @ 17:24:34

    Creativity personified! Sadness can indeed be a great muse if channelled into a poem.” Move on like the gone times, never to turn around”–profound lines indeed!

    Awesome poem. Amazing how you can create such a powerful poem AND fit it into a shape to match the imagery of the poem itself.

      Reading such a nice comment is just so humbling! While doing such stuff, something possesses me n ride over my conscience till I am done.
      When I look back at my work after some time, I feel surprised myself.

      Thank you so much for your support.. πŸ˜€

    …to sail away, leaving the pain behind….
    Such a beautiful poem Olivia,
    …wishing you a cozy day, hoping that the mood from the poem is only fictional….

      Thank you so much for your wishes Dear!!!
      Here, it’s the real mood.. πŸ™‚

      Going through a transitional phase and hence the feelings expressed.. But am otherwise chirpy- πŸ˜€

    I, too, would like to abandon pain. It is, quite simply, no fun!

    A wonder weaving of words.

    Thank you.

      Thank you Darling……. I have become numb after taking all that I have. Whenever some feelings return, I write. Other times, I brood.
      Many many hugs xoxox

    I am sorry to hear that you are in pain… I hope it’s only a stage, a creative one. I suppose you didn’t get my second and third messages via fbk. Maybe you can read this one. I hope you understand that I cannot tell a lot about that case without strong evidence. Take care.

      May 13, 2011 @ 13:31:04

      Hey Bella! This is indeed a phase but in reality.. I may be making it productive (creative) but a phase it is!
      Thank you for our wishes.. many hugs xox
