They were too free for that
and I too caged.

Lovely, heartbreaking stuff. :heart:

I put almost my whole gallery in storage while you were gone. The oldest stuff had been there for ages and needed to be; the other stuff, well, I just did it. I took out the DDs a couple of weeks ago. I'm so glad you liked this one. :heart:

Very much.  I don't know how I missed it before. (I think it's a good thing to go back for a look
at all those stored pieces. The retrospective is healthy, like rereading an old diary, I suppose.
Whether they stay in mothballs or come out for air, they are a part of us.)

Thanks for unstoring some of these jewels! :heart:

Nice work.I just think it shows how enexpected,confusing and fickle life can be.Wouldn't it be great if you never had to regret,apologize or cry ever again?I wish even myself could live up to what a good friend,brother,father,or person that I should be.I seek to find a positive path and outlook especially when I write,but that thing called experience kicks in and things seem to dim.I know all about shadows.

It may sound cliché, but I think life has to be a mix, "You have to take the bitter with the sweet, I suppose," as musician Billy Bragg writes in one of his songs. I'm glad you liked the poem -- and I really appreciate your kind comment. :heart:

The response to this poem caught me off guard. It's an older one -- I don't tend to even think about those much, anymore. And thanks. :heart:

It  does. Though Benadryl liquid is better for a heat rash,  I found out this weekend.
