    Vincent, I must admit that I have recently been skimming through the authors on the new poems list rather than titles. That being said, I've found that your name is one that always sticks out and promises a great read.

    It's a pleasure to read you.

    There is a persistent melancholy in your work, Vincent. Siometimes it has a sweetness, and sometimes it seems to be something you are gunning for - a self-punishment perhaps.

    My prayer for you is to take your talent, which is considerable, and to reroute it toward less destructive, less self-pitying.

    The mind of a poet is a thicket of tares, but the world is bright and bountiful. Take a walk outside, and open your heart to the possibilities.

    This poem about the bird that dies in the grass is so so sad. I did cry. When I was young, oh so young, I buried a frozen cat in my back yard. What a poem. I must say you have got it Vincent. Oh yes, it was beautiful also - in death there is beauty. The feather.... michele kostelnik

    If his date of birth didn't show, you'd think he was twice his actual age. He has overwhelming, mature talent.

    I'm glad you posted on the forum because then I might have wasted more time hunting for someone with even a smidgen of your ability. You write like I dream, with force, power and emotion that could fill a room.
    Warm regards, Joy

Best Poem of Not Long Left

A Death From Within.

in warm oblivious solitude,
night forever came,
fading vibrations dimmed,
our lives would never be the same.

never did i see your face,
never did i see your smile,
never did i hold your little hands,
but for a while,
you were you.

you emerged from within,
and died from within,
once three hearts beated,
now just two,
never did we meet,
but i shall forever miss you.

and although i will never,
ever stroke your little head,
or place you lovingly in your,
perfect wooden bed.
memories shall remain,
of the little ...
