    Exclamation

    I think your title is good. Remembrance comes to mind...
    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...

    Nice piece Niamh. (all good, I really like the last one) I know that mood, for me it's kinda like a depression or haunting melancholy. As far as a title it reminds me of a Willaiam Faulkner story, As I Lay Dying.
    So it goes

    I like that Pengragon. It fits well with the first poem, seeing as it is about remembering to incidences. Thanks!

    I like that.


    It Just inspired me...
    As I Lie Haunted

    As I lie Haunted, memories are my spirits shackles,
    chained forever to those foolish follies done in youth.
    Nothing can free me, as my ears boom with the ghostly cackle
    Of the devil who lies beside me, waiting for my death.
    I can not escape......

    I'm lucky that i caught them just as they started so its only around the 500 mark. But it still makes me angry.

    This is a nice rhyme! I am glad you were able to catch him though. This stuff is going on even without people being caught sometimes.

    Really lovely poems, Niamh. Especially the one without a title, that was my favorite.
    "The time has come," the Walrus said,
    "To talk of many things:
    Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
    Of cabbages--and kings--
    And why the sea is boiling hot--
    And whether pigs have wings."

    Shattering Thoughts


    The sun on the river shimmers silver
    As i sit alone where we once sat,
    Looking out at Anna Livia our river
    Remembering the days we spent in chit chat.

    We would spend hours joking, teasing,
    Laughing; a merry duo we were!
    But now theres no more pleasing.
    We are no longer that happy Pair.

    You talk only about work, and a game,
    While i am expected to sit listen.
    What happened? why arent things the same?
    no more laughs, no more kissin'!

    Is this it? should we call it a day?
    Are you even aware that here
    and now love may have gone away?
    That things may never be as they were?

    As I sit, i ponder, feeling sad.
    i never thought that things would get this bad.

    Niamh, you poem without a title is moving. Sometimes you have to let it be for awhile to come up with an appropriate title. I like your poems and their titles. You will think of this one as well.

    Keep writing!
