There is an ache that lives inside,
from where it comes I do not know
But with it brings black butterflies,
that carry pain on wings of woe
Casting shadows on midnight moon,
they turn my brown eyes to gray
Now salted lips from tears that flow,
taste sorrow on the pillow where I lay

Scroll down when editing the poem. There is a box for YouTube links toward the bottom :)I just saw how close your poem was to being able to read from the bottom up or from the last line back to the first... its a way to add depth of meaning.. the wheel of time turning and such ;)

and in the puddle
of the tears
i see reflecting back at me
ripples of colors
forming others
dancing on one knee
growing into infinity
becoming that unexpectedly
not being very subtle
removing all the fears

I can't figure that out either. I see FB, Twitter and email. I also signed on the Disqus thinking it would help, but your right it asked for my email etc. Maybe someone else might know. You have a great evening and I'm glad I came over here Thanks for giving me the link. I really like this much better. Sandi.

Yes I know about the Spansih and English button at the top of the page on the right but what I cannot figure out is why it always wants to go to Spanish automatically. I went ahead and signed up for that disqus thingy but I still have to put my email and password in when I make my first comment. Strange. And I have no idea how to send you a personal message. If you figure something different out let me know and I will you...have a great evening and thank you for reading my poetry and for coming over here to this site with me...:)

Hi Debra, when you click on the link to your email and go through that Disqus, it automatically puts it in Spanish, go to the upper right hand corner and switch to English. That simple. I have a problem when I post sometimes it won't post it and says something abut spam. It's in red. Then it doesn't post what I said. I'm wondering if maybe it was accidentally flagged. I just don't know. I answered your Duplicity and it did it there. Then I sent one to someone else it did the same thing. I may have to contact the Disqus site. Hope that helped you. God a Bless. Sandi.

Sandi, your comments are most overwhelming in such a wonderful way and yes I have been enjoying all the pictures you have been putting up and she is a really pretty young lady. It seems you are figuring the site out better than I lol...I put up a youtube video on one of my poems which was very easy but not sure how you are putting these pictures up at the bottom of the page. Please enlighten me..thanks friend for reading. Oh wait I think I just figured it out lol....:)

Beautiful yet so sad. You are very talented my friend. Keep your poems coming, I enjoy reading them. It seems we all have our sorrows and write them down in our own way. Your words are beautiful. Do you like the picture of my granddaughter? She is my sweetie. One day! God Bless. Sandi
