    It was so lovely to meet you, Donall. I have read your poetry and it is beautiful. But having seen the way you bring it to life in a three-dimensional sort of way, taking the listener right into the scenarios as if you were performing vivid and colourful one-man plays I will no longer 'read' your poems but 'live' them. Keep on flowing.....

    734 poems. Crikey. I didn't know you'd been so busy. I have 60, that cause me limited squirming.

    A very nice and kind hearted man. He gives people a chance even when you feel like you have no where else to turn. Has writen some truely amazing poems. He made me smile even when i was in deep despair. He was the light behind the big thick black cloud. all in all a great man. hope to keep in contact with him.

    Take Care

    Love Frankie

Best Poem of Dónall Dempsey

' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' To Sleep Or Not To Sleep

To sleep
perchance to...snore!

I can only dream
of peaceful sleep.

Like MacBeth
you've murdered sleep.

My sleep!
Ay, there's the rub!

I lie awake
misquoting Shakespeare

to myself.

Read the full of ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' To Sleep Or Not To Sleep

The Way The Story Goes

Always enchantments
falling from your lips.

Orpheus...Eurydice
made real

made from the nearness
of your breath...a kiss.
