Expanding Pages

I am, my own published book,
Aren’t you?

I mean, there’s pages of grief,
Pages of sorrow,
And regret too,

Oh yes and of course of joy,

In some chapters
Hell, I’ve even questioned evolution,
haven't you?

Yes, my curiosity takes up a few lines,

I've written about disloyalty,

Of finding love

And of course, of losing love,

I even have some written in virus verse now,

I've many chapters, and some more to go,

My book will always have new pages

As long as I breath,

I may be nobody, but I’m someone to me.

I am glad to know this somebody. You have brightened more than a few of my days, with your lavish praise; [ which I lap up with all the aplomb of a thirsty dog in August.] Reading your work, is like coming home to read the good parts of the newspaper. You know, like the comics and the good stuff. Is the [Regret] capitalized for a particular reason? Am I missing something? ~Geez.

Our Chatroom is open 24/7 Feel free to use it for
keeping in touch We have poets around the world and it is fun
to have real-time conversations with those that are up
all night or on the other side of the world.

I moved some lines around and missed that, you have the most eagle eye, and the kindest of words for me, I can't tell you enough how much your comments mean to me because you are always sincere, so the praise goes right back at you.

Thank you...Teddy

Hi, Teddy!
I agree with Geezer, I look forward to Teddy15 poetry and Neopoet every day! I love reading and writing and sharing this awesome, wonderful way to communicate the most intimate and meaningful parts of the world and our lives! Thank you for this affirmation!
Have a great Somebody Day!

Darling Lavender, you're such a beautiful poet and i am overwhelmed by your words to me, i hope Teddy15 never lets you down. and may i send your compliments right back at you too. I dont think there will ever be a day i publish my work on neopoet without any doubts there are always butterflies in my gut, but just knowing that there are others who actually come to give me encouragement and appreciation and also sometimes a kick up my butt, then the butterflies are worth it. A big hug to you.

Thank you...Teddy

Hi Teddy, I too look forward to your expanding life book in verses. Whole novels have been written as poetry, as everybody knows. It's so enjoyable to read your original topics, always surprising us.
Best, Gracy

first of all thank you for your words that humble my pen, i too look forward to reading your out of this world poetry,
I am quite overwhelmed by all these kind comments.
I guess if i'm honest i dont have a style so maybe that why my poems are always surprising. I have to say that my sonnet was and is my greatest achievement to date, but i don't know if i could ever write another. I am thrilled you enjoy my work.

Thank you...Teddy
