A Robert Lindley and Lawrence Sharp collaboration
10-11-2018

Poetry Note- 
I am very pleased to have found a new and fantastic writing partner 
that presents fantastic free verse poetry in its top form. This our first collaboration was a true pleasure and great joy to create. We both found ourselves in tune, as we worked to present this dark free verse poetry, that depicts the darker side of this world, past wayward youthful experiences and a look at what even today our youth face in this unforgiving and to oft deceptive, corrupt and tempting world that rewards darkness, and giving in to wanton desires. 
The magnificent verses my writing partner contributed to the creation of this piece sincerely awe me-  as I am learning of the depths, beauty, great and high artistic value in creating and reading free verse poetry, Both my thanks and my appreciation come from a sincere and very appreciative heart. 

As I Plot Just One More Day Desperate as the waking at blackest dawn I seek only moments within eternity, for the day upon me is long and I do not ponder its end Forever that blackened door beckoned in tones of promising delights who can know what lies in its beyond perhaps a cure for the world's pains I walk halls leading to its hurts echoes that resounded as if playing with no malice, future screams at my hesitation as I plot just one more day as I hide my lusts just one more day Decadent as the lust of gloomiest noon I am immersed in the consummation and overpowered in the contest, yet hopeful that still I may embrace eternity's devious charm Never ending cycles eat into a wanton soul they are all too familiar and their boredom becomes a chain a rasp in my dying breath I hear its rhythm and each echo speaks O' that parade of desires hides deep within as the dark expands its borders as I plot just one more day as I hide my lusts just one more day Dire as the languishing at darkening dusk I seek an eternity of moments to sate my lust and quell my rage, to forgive and to be forgiven A Robert Lindley and Lawrence Sharp collaboration 10-11-2018 Poetry Note- I am very pleased to have found a new and fantastic writing partner that presents fantastic free verse poetry in its top form.

Thank you my dear friend. This has been both a great pleasure and a fine gift. The writing of this brought two poetic minds together to work in harmony on a dark piece. To delve deeper into the mind, soul and heart of humanity and its struggles in this dark and evil world, with emphasis on the trials and tribulations of youth..

This Intense , and beautifully poetic "dance macabre" is both edgy, and well timed as an excellent partnership, Robert! Brilliantly created, co-ordinated, and executed....I truly appreciate the generous spirit you show, in your collaborations. You are both gifted, and kind hearted, while maintaining your artistic and personal integrity. Well done on POTD!

Thank you my very good friend. So great to hear from you and I remember your magnificent poetry that so impressed me. I believe that poets far more than any other group should be kind , generous and supporting of each other. For what good is a poet's heart/soul if it can not welcome others and give praise when and where it is due? My new friend Lawrence strikes me as a great talent and a kind person.

Susan , my very dear friend-- thank you for this kind and keen insight into both this free verse poem and this new collaboration with my friend Lawrence. As a start we are doing dark poetry for a while, may later do other and even possibly some rhyme. As always, just hearing from you brings a smile to my face.. Your immense kindness rivals your immense poetry talents.

Hi Robert, a most excellent poem written by two skillful poets. Your words take us upon a poetic journey. A seamless journey through emotions. You have both used this free verse form to its fullest extent. I love the form, asIi think it gives the poet more scope for to showcase poetic skill. You have both used this form wonderfully. This one is a fave. Have a wonderful Friday. Your friend always....Mike.

Thank you my friend. I had the great pleasure of composing with Lawrence and finding that he composes his exceptional verses faster than I can write those that I compose.
