    Must be the season of the beast. I've just written Restless River on a very similar theme! l Enjoyed this different perspective. (Report) Reply

    I don't want this beast in me, , , , I'd rather it be the spirit of a kind soul and loving one that is able to overcome this dreadful beast you write of, which is one of the reasons that this journey we are on is called 'earth' and not 'heaven.'..well thought out write.....Let the caged beast free say I, gone from one and all.....marci.xo (Report) Reply
