As strong as a rock

As strong as a rock

A Poem by Carl Drake Barnard
"

:)

"

The words may seem

strange

But know you'll be

tamed

 

I miss the tender words

that gave me hope and inspiration

For they made me feel like this

the love and admiration

 

I miss the long nights

we wrote together

Taking me to new heights

Even in the cold weather

 

A writer's message

giving truth and admiration

with respect to one's

direction

                                                                                        
strong and pure

always wanting to

hear more

 

A writer's love
as strong as a rock

with her caring

devotion

Why thank you :) And thanks for reading
There is an admission in the starting lines...
and the rest of this develops within itself..
...as the words come down the lines...
and that admission carries to the last stanza...

I love how the stanzas change, and how it's not all in one style or one format, but yet you manage to make the words flow so beautifully. Very lovely!

Thank you Jvonne!! :)
Nice Work! I like the flow and the images portrayed.

I think you need an apostrophe here: "A writer's message" "A writer's love"

Keep up the good work!

Thank you and you're right :)
The last three stanzas really pulled me in but when I got the the final stanza, I was blown away with how beautifully you tied the entire poem together.
