You managed to get a word in to poetry that i would never attempt to put in let alone spell it. But it is also a good poem

I admire the sadness of this piece for some reason. The only thing I think may need to be changed - "many song left unsung"... Should be "many A song" or "many songs?" Regardless, I liked this. The repetition of certain phrases also served to firmly root the images in my mind.

Thanks for the responses, folks.

this is really, really good. The "good" feeling is still with me even though I somehow already wrote this entire paragraph and it failed to post, so I lost it and have to start all over....grrr. But, it's worth it to tell you AGAIN that I loved this poem. So poignant; the pain and longing come through so clearly. The pleasure/need of memory at the cost of living life. I especially loved the entire third stanza; "Days, weeks months passed/teasing me with their joy, sorrow,/pleasure and pain until I folded up/into myself for fear of changing/any of it" So nice. I got that satisfactory "ahh" feeling that comes at the end (at least for me) of any really good poem. Ahhh. -Stacia :)

Stacia, bless your heart
