    maybe not in “real life” but here it appears that I just might be an open book. I dared a blog to get in the habit of “giving myself a good talking to” like dylan (the musician) quipped. To let go some. Therapy,mostly. you too?
    all comments,idle chit chat, repartee’ will be considered & entertained

    Strength & Mercy to you

      thank you for the comment. i don’t ususally reply on my posts, i figure its more polite to return the favor. otherwise how can ones blog give them a talking back to? open book or not i dare say, the purpose of blogging is more than likely self imortalization. unless of course their are the exhibitionists and the voyeurs no doubt. but i think there must be a method to the madness rather than air out and read others dirty laundry. therefore i digress – poetry is simply the fearlessness of our hearts to express pain through beauty where by others may live and love through common sadness. you might enable your track backs…. unless of course you don’t want to be found. but then again a blind man found you, not because i have sight but because i have vision. peace.

  2. Hey, thought I’d drop by and see what I could learn.. Looks like I should begin ‘to let go some’ sincerely.. And I must say, it helps to read some of your works..They’re comforting..But most of all, I like how they are unconventional to a large extent and flow so smoothly. The “5th of November” work reaches out a lot..

    Hi, thank-you for your comments and your words of strength, they will be waken on board. I completely relate with your “about me” section. Writing to me is a form of therapy (and photography, and keepsake box) too. And was a bit hesitant, and still is (a little) hesitant to publish personal pieces and lay them out ‘like an open book’ as you’ve said. But guess it makes up for my lack of it in real-life. Enjoyed what I’ve read on your blog-page. Poetry is stark isn’t it? Good to know that I’m not the only one pasting honesty away 🙂

    haha “waken” .. I laugh at my silly mistakes.

    Nice site…

  6. echostains said

    You are in good company namelessneed – we all need a good talking to! I do it all the time. The only trouble is that I always end up trying to justify myself 🙂 Keep on – your honesty is refreshing 🙂

  7. i wanted to thank you for your comment. i also want to say that your writing reminds me of someone….someone i have been in love with for quite a while and who will never see me. he is bold and gentle and honest and full of expression…your writings here are good not only for your soul,it seems your self-immortalization has a bit of a purpose.

    stop in anytime, nameless

    Thanks for your perfectly timed comment on my blog. It was exactly the levity I needed to transition out of the funk I was in.

    Writers are wonderful bearers of little miracles, you know? Remember that next time YOU’RE in a funk. Remember that if your heart feels like saying it, it needs to be said. We don’t always know why.

    I’ve tried using art/writing/poetry for self-therapeutical reasons (and still do). But I often feel that, as far as self-therapy goes I’m not successful. I always end up ‘censoring’ myself/my creations which is really counter-productive. I do this because I always start to feel a need to share/show my creations, and when I show them to people who know me, I don’t want my work to be too revealing. But when I start to ‘hide’ the meaning of my work, I feel that the therapeutical part of it is lost because I have started censoring myself (by avoiding certain topics, or just coding the message so many times that not even I remember/understand the intended meaning).

    • Barrie Gibby said

      self-censoring might be a harsh interpretation of your inner landscape that has high standards. There’s no need to share your work openly. It’s yours alone – hidden in the veil of strong self worth and beauty.

    Poetry is the best form of self-therapy. It does not lie, it does not allow you to hide. It forces emotions to the surface, despite our best attempts to throw a dark blanket over them.

    Poetry is the soul verbalized.

    I think your writing is wonderful. Thank you for sharing.

  11. Hi 🙂
    It was truly lovely to receive a comment from you on one of my poems, so I decided to check your page out. I usually don’t explore others sites (terrible I know :P) But something, possibly subliminally, told me that we are similiar in some of our darker sides/tendancies/thoughts. I definately resonate with the person that is projected through your works. Also, I found it strangely comforting, that even in so few words, there was some form of allie in you… although I don’t know you in the conventional sense! 😛 We write for the exact same reasons… there is so honesty in writing, particularly poetry as much of it is written prophetically or subconciously. Lovely to know I’m not the only person in our species haha 🙂 Thank-you

  34. Greetings–
    Just wanted to thank you for your visit to my blog. The minimilist quality of your writing is a counterbalance to the depth of some of your sentiments. It feels almost far-eastern! Anyway, I wish you continued success in all your pursuits and of course, your blogging.
