Ma'am Cat!

Your absence has been branded
Cat ,
where once in a while
in the universe we all call wilderness,
thou escapist to make folks wonder
where the poet has eloped
and when the return is un-sounded
hearts begin to thump again
poets like me are grounded
is it you once again?
I can't believe my weary eyes
some tear drops always remain,
anyhow that's my luck
twill always be the same

those who love me are very few
almost nil 'tis true

that for you I can't ever say it
thanks for coming across the stream

but you write once in a while
whereas we all do time and again
but dare not have the nerve
to catch your vein

one little nit
imo lol
'some tear drops always remain,
anyhow that's my luck
twill always so remain...'
- you have used the word 'remain' very close here
- why not make the second line
' twill always be the same' ...

a very lovedesque write - i am loathe to suggest any changes
love judy

'Each for the joy of the working, and each, in his separate star,
shall draw the Thing as he sees It, for the God of Things as They are.'
(Rudyard Kipling)

that's why discerning eyes are needed
like yours

Is this poem for me? I am humbled and most pleasently surprised by such a lovely tribute! You do me great honor and I thank you with all my heart. I loved these lines:
