I well understand how inspiration can touch our hearts to inspire our writing from all sorts of sources. In this poem you deliver a raw and authentic-feeling experience of addiction where 'shadows stalk my soul' to finding 'the bliss of the dove' when the narrator finds his God, his Savior.

I like it. Shows there is nothing too hard for the Lord. When a soul cries out to Him, He delivers and sets free. Truly He is no respecter of persons.

Well, crazy poet, I enjoyed it as it touches on topics so very relevant for the young and the 'abandoned' of today's crazy world... ;) :) Thanx so much for sharing your heart in your pen as you are always so good at doing! ;) Yvette

    Thank you, Yvette, for being a poet that understands that we write from the heart, from our minds, and from what we see on Tv. ;)

You nailed all the internal rhyming here and I thought you did a great job! It's not an easy form and I thought your message came across and your lines were smooth.

Just a couple of suggestions here for you . . . .

You used feminine endings on these two lines, which is okay and makes each line 9 syllables instead of 8. But this is acceptable.

This line has eleven syllables:

"I was not whole, in fact, I used to dally"

Would suggest:

"I was not whole, in fact, I'd dally"

This last line sounds a bit awkward:

"Now, the bliss of the dove I follow gladly."

I would suggest:

"the bliss above I follow gladly.

    Thank you, Dolly, but I still didn't get the gold ring. I use 10 syllables all the way through. That's where I messed up. I'll get it right on the next one.
    Jose :)

Steve,

I don't know how much of this is true, but there's a lot of depth to this piece. I really thought it was so well done - even if it may not be perfect for the form. (I couldn't tell.)

Thanks so much!

    Thank you, robyn. With nothing to do I see a lot of this on tv. :) I made up everything to fit the poem. I am a writer of fantasy by the way. :) it ran well except it should have been 8 syllables, not 10. My bad, but I liked it and left it as it is.

A very well-written poem about finding your way back to normality batter addiction is a hard, long, and lonely road that asks for determination to reach the goal.

Jose, regardless of how many times you try you are doing a great job at expressing your words. Nothing is perfect, I learned that when I was studying theology. Christ as the son of God was the only perfect man for we all sinned. I enjoyed it, well done my friend.

    Thanks, Alie, for you I smile. :) I made everything up. Though I've gotten high, but never like that guy.

    You are so welcome Jose. Let me guess, high on life and high on God's words.

What a wonderful poem, Jose. It is so very meaningful and full of encouraging hope to any reader. You did a fine job with the Octet and made this form shine with your internal rhymes... but mostly, the meaningful content. So well done.

    Thank you for the sugar, Melissa. :) Love the stars. I should have made it a sonnet, but I liked the way it came out.

I'm not sure what a Dolly Season Octet is, but I think this came out just fine as it was written. One line bothers me though: I look so drawn that all I did was gawk. maybe change to something like: emotionless, permanent expression, only able to gawk. Nice work!
