Hello Daryl

I am aware of what a gallery is for when it comes to reading. I view it the same as I do when buying a book. If I like it, then I do, if I don't, well then I don't, but either or, I do not contact the author and tell them my views, because it is for reading only, and the enjoyment.

But...

When you give the option to comment, you best toughin up and expect both sides, or there shouldn't be any sides. It is a matter of being fair to all readers.

Though this is not a section for critiques the line between explaining why you liked and why you didn't like is the same. example

...I liked this because it followed my belief.....

...I didn't because it felt too drawn out and could be shortened....

Both are comments, both try to explain why they made them rather than leave the author wondering why.

So, if the option of commenting is removed, a reader can enjoy, a writer can share, and no feelings are offended.

I've seen this on other sites, so am not so newbie as I appear

thanks for your thoughts.

Sorry, originator of this piece for hijacking your thread.

I also sometimes make the mistake of commenting here. As, indeed, I did with this poem. I apologised for my comments and will simply read work that's posted here and then sneak out as quietly as possible. ;D

We have all said we were sorry for posting on a restricted thread. Do you require a public stoning of the perpetrators to feel avenged?

If you are referring to me Ronnie . . . the answer is no.  I posted the link due to the fact that some here (and else where) skip right over the guidelines for the various boards.

My only intent was to (hopefully) offer a reminder that they exist.

as John said " My God" too long, too much "God". Religion (IMHO) is a private matter and I always feel preached at by writing like this. This is probably just me.

I did not post this poem to offend anyone. The title "My God Is" clearly warns those who don't like to be "preached at " that the subject of the poem is religion. I, personally, do not read poems on subjects that do not interest me. To me sex is a private matter but as a poetess I'm not offended because some choose to write about sex. Thanks, to each of you who have commented on my poetry.

Like other people have mentioned by the last few verses the poem did seem to get a triffle too long. But I must say I think it's a really good piece of work and I enjoyed reading it. Religious poems can be nice to read as it gives you an insight into what other people believe. Keep up the good work! :)

I saw no need of re-posting this poem for those who may not have gotten the chance to read it so I am just replying. I hope no one minds?

Welcome back, Janice. Have you perhaps written another poem to post in the meantime?
