The following comments are for "Call For Romance Submissions"
by ttnorris

I would've paid attention if this had shown up on ONE thread... as it is, it's just a little obnoxoius-
just my opinion-

All the other s##t that this adressed..
I guess my thought was heard by the powers that be, cause now I just look stupid. All the other threads ARE gone, except this lone comment.
Anyway to get rid of this Peter?

Sonnet to Crow

He was a god; a demigod was he.
His shape, earth-bound to me, was but a crow.
There was a part of him that did love me,
and I appeared to him a lovely doe.
Now crow needs crow, god, god, and buck for doe-
and so I watched him choose his final frame.
Pierced, then, I died. My life spun out to woe.
In all these turns of sun I've lived this shame.
Not god, nor buck, but crow -he chose his form;
to peck and scrape instead of leap with me.
He chose to leave me lost, contrite, forlorn.
His fear betrayed him to conformity.
Now I, forever-after, ache for him.
He, trammeled in his field, now old and grim.

Sorry friends, don't know what glitch happened-
best to you all-
could be worse than romance, right?
-best to you,

Tap, Lillia, any one else-
Tap I love you- I love everyone, but I'm drinking. Kidding-
Chill, my friends. Please. Write-

aaahhh, a lost love. I know the feeling.

in keeping with theme of lost love, and despair, here's a little something I hacked out last night (it's a first draft, so bear with me):

(I'm also going to post it as a poem)


Seriously -

Can you EVER take me


now that you know me so well?

Now that the vail is cast aside
and there's no more mystery to me

Am I what you hoped I'd be

or is all too much
to take me


I'm too tall to be short
too short to be truly tall

I stand alone
stuck in the middle

not as smart as you maybe
but still smarter than most

smart enough to know that you
could do better

Pen, raj, romance?
I SWEAR there where atleast THREE posts that were all the same and were some sort of sales venue for brands of at least 50 television sets. I swear. (I don't do drugs anymore!)
I responded to that initially, and then somehow it became this "call for romance submissions"-
I played along, why not? (It was 2 a.m. afterall- ;) )
Thanks raj and pen for acknowledging-
now I must go back to my rubber room

hope ya'll have a bliss filled day!
