    James, may I just say how much I enjoy your poems.
    The lyricism, the music of the mind, the breadth of the mind...OK that's enough for one email...hope you go on writing - in and out of love!

    Slightly enviously,

    1 person liked.
    1 person did not like.
Best Poem of James Grengs


You say that you have felt pain?
You have no idea what pain is.
Pain is hearing, “She doesn’t
like you anymore.” WHAT?
How can so much pain be caused by
someone who is so small,
so young,
so far?
Yet I tell you, I have felt pain,
pain at hearing your name
mentioned by some ignorant
person, someone who doesn’t
know what you have put me
through. Pain? Yes, that is pain.
Pain is knowing that you will
never be mine, though I once would have been
wholly yours. Yours, though
you may never know it. That
also is pain- not being able ...

I Won'T Go Back

I won't go back now-
I've found a happier, better, place.
I'm sorry you've had some rough times,
And I want to be here for you,
But I won't go back now.
I'll be your friend,
When all others leave you,
But I won't be yours-
My heart is given
To another.
