Freddie

Freddie Friendship you offered me freely Ready always to help and advice Each comment structured and balanced Delightful were the words you wrote Drawing pictures and visions in the mind Invoking thoughts that inspired Each phrase and verse chosen well I read the last poem he wrote before changing his id to poet aggressor and to me it seemed he knew what lay ahead. Maybe even welcomed it, I think he had, had enough for who knows what he was going through we all wear public faces keep the pain and torment hidden. Freddie dear Freddie already I miss you so much I will leave you with his own moving words. Spoken Words richness of the heart the tongue will speak graciously a bounty of words spoken tenaciously well incanting ones included Mea Culpa I'm the accuser blaming myself directly a sign of my guilt pointless justification without any allowance Missing at the funeral unsuccessful burying mourners in plenty grave devoid of a body instead thrown in a furnace Anticipation courage is with me just as long I keep breathing once I die I'm dead apprehensively of course don't know where I'm going yet A few of Freddie's short poems his websites www.poetrycuresthesoul.co.uk www.guidgearcomesinsmabulk.com www.poezijimaltin.com (blog)

Shadow, It is weird to see this after Freddie has come back to life and told us all it was a joke. I even did a blog for him. Good grief. You wrote some really nice stuff here.

I just realized this was an "acrostic" poem. I didn't notice this before, very impressive, Shadow!

Hi Shadow, you have me confused. I just read Arthur Vasso's poem and you have it listed here as Freddie's poem. Is this a case of mistaken identity??? Freddie was from Malta and Arthur is from Canada.
