    I just read through about half of your poems. It's all so enchanting...Lilting and beautiful and honestly sad and sadly honest. Youre's so talented. You're so talented and I'm so envious. Don't you dare ever stop writing,

    Ben, ben. You inspire. Posh writer, you. Your verses are sublime. Your subjects, divine. Like the epitome of the All-American boy, trying to make it in this biting world. With a little help from his pen, his thoughts. You're endearing. And lovable (whether you like it or not ;) .. I look forward to your postings: each and every one. Keep growing, keep speaking, and above all, keep writing.

    best care

Best Poem of Ben Paynter

I Fought Love, But

inevitably
you feel
yourself taken
into it all

like a flash
like a beat
of a drum
come to
make you
dance

Read the full of I Fought Love, But

Dance Quickly Now

-
Dance, I said to the boy in the glass
Staring back at me with a darkening mask
Dance, I begged, with love and pain
Dance, please dance, oh dance again
-

Dance with the moon in the child’s eye
Circling the middle as black as coal
