    we are both being published in Poetry Quarterly, about five pages apart... i was just perusing some of the authors and you came up on this website.. i really like your poem, Home Fire... it reminded me of a little shack i lived in up in Massachusetts- it seemed as if we could never get the stove perfect: it was either too damn hot or not even lit, haha... keep writing: i was such a fuck up in my early 20's that i dropped out of school, but i kept writing... now i'm back in school and have a good idea of where i am at, writing-wise... ugh... life, right?

    Your child like eyes enlighten wisdom where folly lacks. You are marvelous

    Melissa, ur a great writer. Anyone with a half brain would be able to see that! Keep writing and never let anyone tell you that you can't. If I had done that, I wouldn't even have found Poemhunter!

    Thank You very much.!


She's fragile, She's breaking,
through makeshift lies and the smile she's faking.
She's in denial, she is aching~
She's crying out, 'somebody save me..'

You can't tell me you look past the sorrow
in her lacrimony eyes.
How can you expect her to wake tomorrow
when all her motivation has died.?
