My first poem posted here in Lit.Org:

I Need Nothing

I need nothing
When you’re gone
But the memory of that morning
The daylight was chasing us.

Now I have no journey
That I care to make
But the memory of that moment
We were kissing in the dark.

I need no shortcut
To the journey back
That shadowed dawn.
Not to run forward yet,
Just leave me hanging
In the air.

And here's the very first comment I got not for the poem above but to my other poem titled 'I Wonder'.

"Direct. Honest. Marred by a couple of clumsy lines (7 and 9)."
( Posted by: Viper9 [Member] On: May 7, 2004 )

I wonder where Viper is right now?

And then followed by Marlyn's comment, this time for the poem above:

"Great imagery. It has a nice natural feel and flow... like breathing. Brought back some nice memories."

I wonder too where Marlyn/Maxiij is right now?

Maxiij and Viper9 are very good poets and I look up on them. Does anyone still remember these two good writers?

crystal face I kiss
tongue tastes like sweet cold rain
I fall into pond

Tigers and writers
Hey peter. I remember Viper definately, and Maxiij rings a bell but i can't place the name with their work. I think writers are a bit like tigers. Sometimes they like to go off in new directions on their own. Other times they enter into new relationships and time for writing is limited. I liked this first poem of yours. With poetry, the rules of English are much more flexible and you have a natural flow going with a unique voice. I wounldn't change a thing here. cheers mick

but not sure about Max. Is it you on the Zebidee Jones website? I'm on there under the handle PaulBirkin (my real name)
Take care

yeah you you're right, repitition sucks ass. but when i looked at your versiopn of my poem i was like "well if you put it that way, i can do so much more to it" thanks for opening that little bridge for me. for some reasonm i thought it was cool when i first did it. i liked the way it was short and it pretty much all started the same. i don't know when i may add any changes though. i will inform you though. thanks.

MIck,Ogg, View...
Mick, thank you very much. It's just that I enjoyed writing blogs these days. They are very quick and your own blogs inspired me to write some (MzJen's blogs too, I always look for hers).

Ogg, yes I wandered around and my feet took me to Zebideejones. I will check out your name and works over there, but my real home to tell you honestly, is here in Lit.Org. I hope you have ways of contacting Viper,he's such a very good poet. Thank you.

View,I have a response to you in your page. I hope you read this short blog. i featured here my first poem here in Lit,something that is still special to me. Thank you.

Peter's Blog
Hey Peter! The good ole days, (well they keep getting better) I remember when we were both new here. Loved all of your comments, now you are "the man." Maxi comes and goes, I see she just commented on your other piece, very good I might add, and Viper, he is a trip, he pops in a few weeks at a time. You'll see him around. Love having you here. Happy "50"!
