Your traumatic mis-click has given me cause to read again and I am even more pleased to do so. Loved it once more --- me too! [;0)~

Fascinating. I have no experience that can relate to a therapist's environment, but the poem is interesting and vivid nonetheless. I've also learned quite a bit about the villanelle. Great work, and thanks.

This is wonderful! I especially love the 5th stanza. Gave me quite a laugh. I can relate quite a bit to this.

This is truly a gem. Do yourself a favor and rush this right off to your publisher if you haven't already. Your skill as a writer is certainly showcased here, Kristine. Congratulation on becoming The Intuitive Poet of the Day.

What impresses itself upon me here is the use of a device (the villanelle form) to emphasise the overwhelming nature of 'the voices', delivering 'blasphemy' in the sanctity of 'His' presence. I love it when poetic structures fulfil a purpose...(the unspoken 'wow' moment :)

I couldn't agree more with what has already been said. I love this.

Oh, wow! I love a good Villanelle and those "voices"! I have them too! I use to write in different styles when I first joined this site. I guess I just got lazy and write in Free Verse now, but donpt write much these days. I plays me guitar too much. A wonderful, wonderful write both humorous and introspective. You have talent and will add you to my list of favorite writers I try to catch up on when I do find the time to "come back" to my old poetic stomping grounds.
