A Poem by Frieda P
"

having a little fun scribble after all the heavy stuff

"

My marriage is over, kids are grown
seen death, addiction, abuse & affliction
no doubt, if not for poetry & Leonard Cohen,
                 I'd be effing bat shyte crazy





There is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in.

Leonard Cohen

No 'bad review' here Mrs.R, I'd be giggling like a schoolgirl if I were not sitting in my mother's living room...you know I absolutely adore this...I wish I had a quote to counter with but I'm still languishing in what you've offered here...the kind of cool, what more can one say? ;)

I love Leonard Cohen. Your short verse is a succinct, mature and reconciled view of life.

You're welcome. My husband introduced me to LC's music.
So open and honest and the music is soooo appropriate. But never lose heart my Lady. Love will find you...........

....well try something new my Lady.
very well written, short and sweet. reminds me of Robin Grey's " I love Leonard Cohen" a terribly lot, actually, and that's a great tune. It might not be Leonard Cohen, but the sentiment reflects like a mirror: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pY7rkGEIjVg

Thanks for sharing that, who doesn't love Leonard, jazz'd you enjoyed! I indeed love LC...
all in all, it's just another "crack" in the Wall....(my version of pink floyd)

but thank God there is poetry.

and there is your poetry...because we can always so easily relate to you.

No doubt, Frieda. Sometimes, when you let your hair down, and just say something flippant, it comes off as profound.
