  1. Dear friend, Thank you very much, I was really happy to have been following your blog. I’m still a lot to figure out, and here I can only say that you are an awesome blogger, full Inspiring and hope you can inspire more readers. Thanks and greetings compassion from Gede Prama 🙂


  2. The last part pierces me yet again, reminded of your pain. It’s easy to say, “imperfect people make mistakes”…but somebody still pays the cost. I’m slamming into this harsh reality once more, concerning my early abuse–by faith and will, I forgive, but the scars have well imprisoned me.


  3. magnificent as usual, Paul. particularly liked the last stanza.
    seductive new powers of mayhem: a line that ignites the imagination with a sensual contradiction to chaos.
    murders deaf to my screams in the night: heartbreaking and terrifying, sir.
    thanks for sharing, loved it. best wishes from baldy


  4. The things that torment creative, independent thinkers and philosophers are beyond the grasp of regular people.

    It is out of the depth of thought and sensitivity that there is a partial enlightenment and awakening. But it seems that the sleeping ones suffer less due to their inability to see.

    Ours is both a curse and a blessing.
    And yet the totalitarian powers that be continue to strip our freedoms as we speak.

    I think I must be onto a poem . Do you feel it? Maybe for later…
    Peace and Love,
