I am likely to rewrite this work quite a few times yet. There is something here I’m sure however I have yet to find it. I hope your feed back my friends will help me. I love poetrysoup and I love the amazing poets here. I have been suffering with acute depression of late. I have my dark moments. It is difficult for me to visit my friend’s works these days. I do make an effort I assure you. I love all of you more than you’ll ever know. I love your words and your imaginations I love your giving nature. I know sometimes not all of us agree but I don’t know where I would be without you my dear friends. That you can take to the bank. Remember there are many great artists few are ever recognized. Keep happy and keep writing. 

I have started work, directing and co writing a web series and also a film. There are pieces written here by poets that I will want to use of course I will approach you at the time. One last time I remind you that I love your poetry...I love you all.

What I admire about you and your writing, Armand, above all else, is your plain, wide-open is intrinsic to your nature; you wear it like you wear your heart: on your sleeve for the whole, wide-waking world to see - and you don't give a damn!! No wonder we all love and admire you! My very best wishes for your forth coming New Year, Armand...and my very best regards as always my friend - Cheers!! :) john

Hello Armand, My Best Congratulations to you on POTD!! I do think that perhaps all of us are guilty too of this, in one way or another, but you've used the divine magnificence of your pen and the golden treasure of your thoughts to articulate all of these words in a truly meaningful way, full of your legendary wit, humor, and sense of wondrous enchantment. Very Well-Done!! A FAVE ABSOLUTELY!! Take Care of Yourself -- and Keep Writing Always!! Best Christmas Wishes, Gary

WoW! Armand, You have a way with your pen. The title alone caught my attention. And as I began to read I was drawn to every word and stanza. The repeated use of the word" I Plagiarized It All" was clever. I've never seen such a bold declaration of love quite like this. Excellent job. Congratulations on getting the poem of the day. I wouldn't be surprised if it got honored poem of the week:-) Alexis

OMG, stunning work from you, Armand. It's so true, every word we say has been used by someone, or it would not be a word. Every phrase has probably been said by someone else in history at one time or another. but ONLY YOU have put together in the exact manner the way you have aligned your lines to make up this wondrous poem birthed from your creative genius. FAVE

So....if I steal this and....slip it under her pillow.....plagiarize.....a moment within a moment.....pilfer the beauty of her eyes, sift her sandy tresses thru my fingers, caress the aura of her skin, and lie about who wrote it.....DAMN THIS IS GOOD ARMAND......

Depression is a difficult thing to deal with and something so many do not understand, unless you have suffered from it.. my brother suffers very badly from it.. You seem to be doing the right thing in keeping busy, and only you understand your own soul.. Great poem, I think that many plagiarise, but dont even realise they are doing it.. Congrats on POTD.
