Wonderful poem, and that's exactly what it's like. You've nailed it, Mike! It's got to go on my favorites so I never forget where I came from and where I am today.

were you listening to "whiskey lullaby" as you wrote this??? very moving write mike.

And though the whiskey offers what appears to be respite, the lies it tells are the worst of all...

A true, tragic story (it happens too often) that is told with a gentle observation and non-judgemental intent. You've done it again!

A sad, sad tale of despair you so well relate in this most poignant poem.

Congratulations, Mike. The world weary woman in this POTD speaks to a place inside all of us.

Excellent capture of personal sadness/tragedy Mike. And the rhyming only helps to emphasize the tone. Congrats on POTD...well deserved!

Congratulations on POTD Mike. Your poem is a litany for many people, day after day, sometimes until death. The truth is too ugly; eventually lies get uglier than the truth. You've written about a universal theme.
|Posted by Maureen Glaude on 08/09/05 at 09:51 PM|
Again, my compliments on this terrific poem and your POTD, Mike!

Congratulations for poem of the day Mike...Charlie

It takes a skilled poet to write a rhyming poem that sounds neither forced nor cheesy. And might I say, you are quite skilled. This is beautiful, haunting, and unfailingly accurate. I love it.
