    • Hah then we are of the same vintage, Marian. Though it took me nearly two hours of pondering on why that line seemed vaguely familiar before I remembered that song. I was too dedicated to using it, the only words that conveyed what I wanted, to change it.

  1. The poem does have a very musical rhythm throughout. That was a difficult selection of words to work from.

    • Tell me about it! * smiles * It only too a minute to work in apotropaic, but a good twenty to get plausible to sound natural – go figure. Thanks Kerry.

  2. Whistles!!❤️💜This is absolutely phenomenal Raivenne 🙂 I love how you use the lyrics to your advantage in this poem, especially “Hey, it’s plausible that you’re only human, that there will be days when it’s just more than, if you need to crash, then crash and burn. Let me be there” Beautifully rendered. Thank you so much for participating at Music Prompt at MLMM ❤️💜

    Lots of love,

  3. Such a giving soul, this speaker… You can tell that she has lived, since she understands so much and is willing to stand with another even when things don’t look pretty. Love the flow of the words and the depths of the invitation.

So? What do you think?
