we erradicate the fear/keep us free from doubt,forget/ have no that..this is nice Michael... felt a bit disjointed with the forward slashes.. butI like the emotion here.. the honesty and hope :)
My Website
To suckle life ..
To enjoy the nectar and glory ..
Of circling your demons ..
With glaciers forming every story ..



Hi Stewart as always thanks for your really generous comments- I added the  slashes to stop or take a breath before continuing- because if I took them out- it might feel or read as being rushed, I don\'t know- I guess it\'s a preference thing when one is reading...I am most appreciative of your comments- I am always learning- so thank you!
