Marie Shine

(April 27th,1950 / Listowel. Co. Kerry)


When I awoke this morning
The scent of you filled my senses
in longing...
for your sweet kisses
I ached to hold you
be embraced in your arms

    Marie, you are welcome.
    Thank you for your message, I see you misinterpreted my informative comment and seems there is still a miscommunication between us. There is no hidden meaning or message and no accusations against you about doing drugs, or promoting the dangerous drug. I am only saying there are similarities in the description of the longing you so vividly describe and the effects this drug has. Ecstasy was given the name for a reason, and your description of longing for someone sooo deeply is the same effect this drug has. Sure some people naturally have these feelings, and other people have to take ecstasy to obtain these same feelings you are describing. I am not sure if you are married but if you are, then your husband is very fortunate to have such a passionate woman. Have a blessed day! (Report) Reply

    *Sunprincess* Thank you for your comment on my poem.
    You totally misinterpreted my writing and concentrated on the title. I am Irish. I do NOT do drugs, I NEVER did drugs and the ecstasy referred to in my poem is the natural high which comes from loving someone sooooooo deeply. (Report) Reply

    .......there is an experience a rush of good feelings (a high) and makes someone's feelings much more intense, whether they're good or bad. this poem describes the effects of a well-known drug in America very well.....a dangerous drug which kills many people....oh and the drug is named ecstasy....

    This poem is short and sweet. And it does not need another line, image or word. In a volume of love poems this one could be a kind of summary poem ending one section of poems before shifting gears to another aspect of the experience of human love. As I've been reading your poems I find myself editing a book of them, and the order of the poems is crucial for their full impact. There is often hidden reserves of energy in a poem. One way to release that stored energy is to place the poem in context with others. Another is to read it aloud - perhaps with musical accompaniment! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
