"Real..."

"Real..."

A Poem by Chris
"

Careful, the heart you touch may be your own...

"
Hey guys, can you do me and yourselves a favor?  There's an author here I want to ask you to pause with...


Read his "The Blonde Girl".  Just two not overly long chapters and thereafter perhaps one or two poems.  He paused my day midstep.  What else is there ...constructive... to say?  Careful, the heart you touch may be your own...

"Real..."

When you taste ...real...
the afters flow through you
well into your nows
and life pauses
and you ...catch a breath,
and your heart and mind KNOW
exactly
what you truly wish
you could have said
but couldn't ...and likely didn't... so long ago.

Chris

Give Chase some "Constructive" feedback ...your heart needs it.

some efforts need to be recognized so their author realizes their meaning... his words needed that.

I like this, it speaks of a now tone. This is good.

Please pause with Chase... will do your heart good.
I know this feeling exactly! When you taste "real," nothing artificial, manufactured, or fabricated can EVER satisfy your tastebuds again. This applies to a lot of things like food but definitely like love, passion, and a connection that can only be experienced in a superior relationship dynamic. But there is no time for regret. No looking back except to learn the lesson that if you ever hold it in your hands again, you should enjoy it and appreciate it for all that it is worth because it can be gone in a flash. Beautiful piece! I'll check Chase out.

yes i agree!!
how often does your brain stop in a vacuum with nothing to riposte with, when confronted with words/remarks/conversations now long gone..... then a clever retort springs to mind a short while afterwards. & sometimes only minutes later, but it's too late. those times often you don't forget.

Hi, Chris. I think this posting is such a great example of what communities like this are meant to be. Places of support and discovery. Letting ego take a back seat and seeing what we can learn from others on our journey. I will follow the link, but first wanted to say thank you for sharing something that inspired you so we all have an opportunity to share in this discovery too.

As for your poem, I do recognize the beauty of realization and perhaps the sting of wishing we had acted on discovery/realization in the moment. It’s quite a meditative idea. Food for reflection.

I very much enjoyed my visit this evening.

I just visited young Chase's a chapter 'The Blonde Girl' and wanna say thanks for pointing him out to me/us.. I also wanna say how I do admire how certain let's say more seasoned scribes are prepared to help and or nurture and promote the work of others unconditionally... Cheers from Me sir

ps
'Real' was not half bad either N ;)

Chris, I’ll check out Chase’s writing later today. Thanks for the link.

As for your words, I know the aftertaste of sarcasm and snap comments I should’ve never made, and often the accompanying behavior. Our words and behavior are carried in the wind, and like bullets we don’t realize the destruction we’ve caused. Good write!

Thanks for pausing Ray...
Memories and things you wished you'd said. I often wonder if what makes us writers is this slowness on the comeback?
