Only Now
17 July, 2004
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


I'm not going to let it bother me
That I am moving once again
That once again my life is up in the air
And that on nothing I can depend

I'm not going to let it bother me
That I never see my friends
That I only talk to my dogs
Finding my only comfort in my pen

I'm not going to let it bother me
I spend so much time alone
My plans are again set aside
My dreams, must be postponed

I'm not going to let it bother me
Any longer than this night
'Cause in the morning when I wake-up
Everything will be alright

Just a little bout with the Blues

dreamer, we all face such fears..

change can be a real kicker when it comes to emotions that our heart has to deal with.....from movin', new job ,new romance.. with the support of our better half our strength is restored..i felt your feelings in this and your absolutely right come mornin' when you rise to face a new day...everything will be ALRIGHT not lose sight of your faith....

just an on looker

"beautiful mind
open to me
orchestra of thoughts
conductor to my intrigue
exquisite music to my ears
your words
so like a personification of the soul
waltzing contemplation
a thrall within your infinite perception
passions incarnate"

I have come to this site for what seems like forever and I have remained silent and just an on looker i enjoyed to remain, until I read your poem. Your "blues" remind me of many days I have found myself with only a pen and a depression without a cause. Unforunately, I feel I am the most creative at those points, I guess that is the two sides to the coin. Once again thank you, your words I have always enjoyed.

Lovely Shared Poem

With beautiful words, such as in your comment, you should never remain silent. I too am usually creative at times like this. Perhaps it is creativity crying to escape.

I am glad you enjoy my words. I know I enjoyed yours.. :) I hope to read more of your "silent voice" in the future. Thank you for your kind words...

But you are to kind....

Your comments are to kind for one so unworthy, So thank you. Maybe you will see more by me since I have already broke my silence and became a participant into this world I have only admired from afar and had been truly content in that fact. Until then I guess....
