    I agree with Chan Caleb; it is wonderful in its symbolic state. I especially love the last three lines. A person cannot take your soul yet they take the words that are the essence of your soul all of the time...of course that is my understanding. I really like it.

    I don't see why you entered this in a "worst poem" contest; I very much enjoyed the simplicity of the piece. Much is to be said of "brevity"- when a poet can pack a great deal of meaning in so few words. I thoroughly enjoyed this piece; kudos to you, Caleb :)

    Sorry sweet Caleb, your poem was bad,, but not that bad.. I found meaning in it.. sorry you did not make the top 10...CONGRATULATIONS ;-) Thank you for participating in my worst poem contest. I don't know if I should call this an honor, but it has been something different... It's always a pleasure running odd contest. Take Care~ LINDA

    yes...um...I LIKE IT! So, don't think you're going to win. Please...stick with the quest for buggers one! That has a real chance...just on the subject matter cause the writing is GREAT!

    Caleb, you certainly shouldn't feel any shame about your "worst poem"-- if you saw the first poem I wrote, you would definitely feel amazing about this one haha. By the way, thank you for the compliment about my avatar, I will admit- you flatter me! ;)

    You may be a little too critical of this. It obviously has great worth as it kept you on the path. ANything written 15 years ago is quite deserving of a badge of honor

    I admit it's a little confusing (the last two lines seems almost a contradiction... haha). But I have written worse I believe, it's fun to look at the older works and see how far we've come :) I'd say good luck on the contest... but do you really want to have the reward for "worst poem"? LOL...

    If this is your worst poem, then I think you're in pretty good shape haha. I wouldn't say it's bad at all, just written by a younger, more naive version of you. It's actually really endearing to read, I think!

    *blush* I really like it... :S

    Caleb.. while reading this.. and I read it three time, I thought how clever and actually quite profound the words were. The format flowed so well, I am considering trying the style myself. A famous poet once told me.. "Never, Ever critic your own poems, and never.. ever let others do it".. Every group of words we assemble emotively are creative art x

    actually, Caleb this is not so terrible. I have seen much worse, right here and they are winning contests too! I will say that the final line of this one, however, is atrocious. hahaha. So glad to get to see a post from you, now lets see a new poem. (and I still love the bugger poem)

    lol Caleb, you reminded me, now this has issues but I'm (with your prompt) going to enter one.

    Regarding what's above well at least you write! And you keep writing! HUGS[Thanks so much Caleb for the 'epic' comment on Madness Rides, I felt I channeled Van Gogh but the write has never got a first place and it's beyond me? Perhaps you can tell me why?] Light & Love
