Valerie you are the epitome of that sad tortured poet, desperately expressing to the world your pain, but believing your words are falling on deaf ears... Well I hear it and I feel the despondence and the passion in your words....The one with the heavy heart indeed, Good Job! MC

Hello Valerie, like silent thunder you exposed your emotions in a very sad and hurtful way. I hate thinking of you like this all broke and shattered... and you are right it is like heroin through the vain. your poem is perfect and deep.... always & forever *LINDA
