    Don't you know it? Definitely a poet who springs a thought to rhyme and gives rhythm to a rhyme. Always a pleasure to come and read, your clever words have filled my need. :)

    I know the hesitation in the first few lines first-hand. "What do you do? Well (long pause) I'm an artist, a painter to be exact." Most often, as you no doubt know, the reply is, "That's nice." I needn't say to keep writing; it's clear that you will. J

    As we say here in the States...You're poet and don't know it...Oh yes David...You're a poet, so know it, grow it and then show it!...Have a wonderful and inspired Sunday my friend and keep that pen handy but PLEASE, no paper on the face, okay? (or at least punch out those little eye-holes so you can see where you're going) - Tim

    Well, I guess if you're dead it doesn't really matter. Never mind...

    this is really heartfelt, David. I know exactly how you feel. I find myself in the same quandary. The ending was sad yet funny. A paper mask on the face? haha. What an image. pen in hand!! Loved the read.

    David,very nice eye opening write...And I thought I was the only one who paused when I said "A Poet." Ha,ha...I really liked the pen and paper mask closing. Thoughts of a true poet... :o)
