"Frosted"
A penny for your thoughts? Scratch that thought. Thoughts are worth more than pennies Thoughts are legions of brilliant glistening diamonds shining dormant undiscovered in a deep deep dark cave veins in the walls of The Catacombs blood art fuses lit burn and sizzle bright like gunpowder travelling from the Throne of Amygdala to the Kingdom of the Pounding Scarlet Brave beats in time with intent and purpose when the music ceases - TRUTH seen very clear as through untainted glass binoculars not necessary here, my dear Windows of your soul unfrosted Will see lost love at last Pennies on your eyelids mirrors covered with vintage grey army surplus blankets trapped in the ashes dust to dust open the curtains, move outwards every pain let the Light and fresh air in You're alive again. Ain't that strange? (Lovejoy-Burton/Feb 2018)

your poetry reminds me this "“Behind this mask there is more than just flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea... and ideas are bulletproof.” A man will die but not an idea/thought".... Very nice work Leanne

phenomenal...my fav poem after reading many wonderful poetry here.... the start itself is so wondeful "scratch that thought".. so true. and the descriptive action oriented message in the lines "open the curtains, move.......Light and fresh air in You're alive again." and to realize the wonder from the message "You're alive again. Ain't that strange?" is such beautiful.... I'm reading it again and again.... n every time i cn perceive how precious ideas in form of thoughts we hv... n thank you!

Thank you Drake. Hope all is well. Your latest poem "Retina's Call" is very simple, but extremely succinct.

Very enlightening words Leanne. What is life without pain? You called it milk and honey i think. This poem shows how wonderful life could be after the pain. Very strange indeed.

Milk and honey is the sweetness of life James. "It Ain't Milk and Honey" all the time, is the reality. To get to the milk and honey you have to go through a bit of pain or a lot of pain sometimes. Thanks for reading, I value your feedback.

I've met Paloma Faith before she was famous... If only it was so simple to let go of all pain, then we would truly be free..
