    I'm back from my long spell away and inevitably have to begin with you(! x) Didn't think I'd ever try to describe a poem as sadly sexual (or sexually sad? !) and the phrases you use now are more concise, more urgent, but no less candid. You're always honest in what you write and now your technique gives it even more balls

    It's okay, I guess, to imagine the hands as not your own, but what are you imagining in place of the lotions? ! : -O

    Clever stuff; affording each line the syllables they deserve for rythmical effect. So it's the eyes specically rather than the whole face? Sounds like a combined confidence with discontent... OR... I could just be talking poo? ? S x

    I'll probably get some stick for this (I'm not sure why I write it now) , but I have mixed feelings about what we do here. When I first joined I felt welcomed into a world where we praised and advised each other, and it felt good. Probably too good, and that's the problem. Everyone was so kind and I found some genuinely good stuff too, but it wasn't long before I slipped (and rested on what laurels I thought I had) and only wrote what I thought would be well received. I haven't posted anything for a long time, .. I guess I felt awkward about what I was doing here. There is a mutual back-slapping culture here but usually it's good honest critique and support, so I'm not knocking it, and I'm aware that I can piss off whenever I like. I just feel a bit lost and in need of something more... something to kick up the community backside. Has anybody else felt this way ever? I stand by it all... one of your own, SJ

    An interesting form I came across a year or so ago is the Terzanelle. It's a cross between the Terza Rima and the Villanelle; and is one of the most recent hybrid forms I know of, though it's probably been used for some time now. It's easy to find if you google it, with a form breakdown and examples.
