we are more than mortal men
we are brothers and we are kin
we are the dreams of the Gods
only to be captured by the wind


The following comments are for "Captured By The Wind"

here goes nothing
There have been times that I've posted comments on your poetry and once [I believe it was only once] you sent me a PM of explanation. You're a frequent poster, here at LitOrg, but you are not one of what I consider an 'active' member because of your site habits.

Now you post this poem in the Rant category and it's perplexing on a variety of levels. Seeing as this is the Rant section let me validate it by responding in a rant capacity.

Quite frankly, because it's unlike me to be obtuse, your involvement at LitOrg does little for the general well being of the site. A quick glance at your profile reveals you've made 654 posts which shows a high degree of activity in the capacity of self-promotion. Yet, when I check your comment section I find that you registered four comments in 2011 and have a grand total of 63 comments. That loosely translates to a pathetic ratio which might be construed, in an unflattering light, as ego tripping.

Please don't respond via PM to my comment and, please accept that I've managed to cloak my disdain with a shroud, however flimsy, of decorum.

Lucky for you that if you are appalled by my opinion, you'll be able to delete it but I'll wager it will be read by a few LitOrg member before you do.

Response: Captured By The WInd
To: Pen

Unfortunately, there is a lot of negative energy here at this website.

Thus, I will remove my poetry from this forum.

If you can't stand the heat!
Pen...looks like you struck a nerve here...If you only want to post without becoming part of the community and respond to other's work...or accept constructive criticsm on your post...there are hosts of other "you are always wonderful no matter what you post" banal sites on the web.

Hope you find one to your vanity's liking!
