Love Without Sex

You do not need to be
joined physically.
Body to body, sex to sex
to become as one.

2.
Dream Within A Dream

I opened the door in answer to a knock
And seeing who stood there
Gave me quite a shock
For there stood a fairy
...

3.
The Witch's Grave

In a little town
Down a lonely back road
There sits a small cemetery
From outside the gates

I Caught A Glimpse

I caught a glimpse of you today
Walking down my street
Skateboard under your arm
Long blond hair flopping over your eyes
...

A Forest Walk

As I traipse through

Cooeen Courtney is a great poetess. Her description is lovely. Her language is nice. Her style is simple and convincing. She should write more.

Where am I? It would be so easy to blame others for our plight in this world. To curse others for our plundering lifestyle. But as we grow, mature and day by day, slowly get ourselves well... Reality comes crashing in. It bowls us over and slaps us in the face. And finally, we awaken..........great part funny but good loved it!

your poem about twenty little angels was so loving and sweet for such a tragic event! I was so hurt too but I couldnt write it! and your poem A glimpse vivid in scene I could see emotion and feel your love. I turned to writting also as a way to let out stress and emotion in a positive way and it reaaly helped Im enjoying reading your work but I cant comment on poems? I just started ph I cant even get my profile going but I hope you get this message and thank you again for the enjoyable readings and comments!
