    aww Jerry, thanks so much for your vote of confidence!!! I take feedback seriously and I value every comment. Yours just made my day! Please feel free to critique my future postings, even if it's a criticism it'll still help me. Thanks again

    "But do you really, seriously, Major Scobie," Dr. Sykes asked, "believe in hell?"
    "Oh, yes, I do."
    "In flames and torment?"
    "Perhaps not quite that. They tell us it may be a permanent sense of loss."
    "That sort of hell wouldn't worry me," Fellowes said.
    "Perhaps you've never lost anything of importance," Scobie said.

    the Angel in your dream
    is not an angel...
    but you
    already know that
    don't you

    That makes the two of us:
    As the angel in my dream
    Is not an angel
    So the world is not the world
    That I see in the sun!

    so where's
    the best place
    to view the eclipse
    of the sun

    your world
    or mine?

    Love Story



    letís do something
    different today

    letís take a trip
    to September of 1948

    letís dress up
    as a Hollywood couple

    letís do a stunt
    and scale the steepest cliff

    letís pose for the camera
    and kiss like thereís no tomorrow

    letís write our own script
    of seduction, love, lust and betrayal

    letís rehearse our lines
    for the riveting, tear jerking last scene

    letís give me your best acting
    pretend you love me more than you love her

    letís make a pact
    that you will not hold me back on my way down

    "In flames and torment?"

    Hell hath no fury like a woman argued with, so I'm putting my neck on the line here, but I must take issue with you. Trashy, Indeed!!! Oh no they're not, not by a very long way. I've just read through them all, and there are some bits that are absolutely outstanding, in amongst a forest of exeedingly good. The imagery of the bus-stop sign with the bullet hole "just where it hurts most". The last line of D22. The lacy, silky, scanty, showy thingys really struck a chord (that sounds terrible, but you know what I mean!) and Ghost Fog in it's entirety. However, the jewel in the crown is Paper Chase. I've been there, and you've put it all so delicately and poignantly. Wonderful. Keep going, cariad fach!

    Another strong piece, Haunted.
    If we are allowed to choose a
    favorite, I adore D22. It is a fine
    bit of work...peace...

    Bar, I value your opinion, thanks!

    dafydd, how can I argue with you! Thanks! And so sorry you too had your own version of paper chase...

    hack, thanks for taking the time, your kind comments are greatly appreciated!

    Thanks Jerry. Mostly mush inside my head but I can be inspired, especially with a comment as encouraging as this!

    forecast


    itís hypnotizing
    how the red cloud
    morphs ethereally
    into a hundred
    free flowing silk threads
    as the scented water
    gently blends with
    the blood

    by the time it turns
    into a sunset pink
    the morphine
    should kick in
