I Share My Soul

A pair of morning-doves preen and prim
snuggled close on their favorite limb.
And cooing low, wake a sleeping sun
giving praise for a new day begun.

A slip of a ghostly moon rides low
wearing its light like a pale halo.
And Sol ascends master of the day
hailing dawn with His brilliant display.

Vapors shed crystal tears on the grass
depositing dewdrops clear as glass.
And blooming flowers imbue the air
with a sweet fragrance beyond compare

Tall lanky palms of feathery leaf
are clad in a green southern motif.
And skittish crabs play tag with the waves
darting in and out of flooded caves

Sipping wine while enjoying the show
we greet the day with a happy glow.
And as romance and nature combine
I share my soul with my Valentine.


(Rhyme)

Within Her Heart

Within her heart is where I wish to be
To dwell inside the garden of her soul
Where each soft heartbeat plays a symphony
And all around is beauty to behold

The sunshine of her love would keep me warm
My one desire, to take life's pain away
Consoling her when clouds of sadness form
Removing troubles of each stressful day

Should something cause her fragile heart to break
I'd gather up the pieces tenderly
With love I'd smooth the sharpness of heartache
Then put them back together carefully

Within her heart is where her beauty lies
Her love, the light that shines within her eyes



   original poem by Daniel Turner

One World

Love is not a color,
No hue, neither a race.
All of our blood is the same, 
That runs deep within our veins.

If we could lift up each other,
And know that we all care.
If we help our sisters and brothers,
There's a bond that we'll share.

Sleeping With The Enemy

SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY

See what you want to see
Don't Look at me!
You are staring you are watching;
Eat what you can't be

Come sleep by my side
The whole world is our playground
Don't make a sound
Stop clowning around

In the mist of the night,
You keep me from crying

I wipe off the taste of your lips
You kiss me starting at my inner hips
You broke me in a way..
I hate to say your love is better every day 
I deny you, the one thing I can't say

You are my pillow
Where I rest my legs,
Can you feel me~
This moment feels right
I just want to die here, 
Die here ~ 
Die here by your side

I sleep with my eyes wide open,
I sleep with the enemy by my side
Come here and hold me
After you watched my worlds collide
Come here and love me
I'm yours till the end of time
You can rock me!
Under the moon and its rhyme
I put it all to a side, how I hate you inside
I can't let go
I just want you to know
I'm a fool in love with you
Even if it doesn't show!

What Is Love

How can I answer what is love
it's part hope, part apparition?
For what it truly is, kind of
simply defies definition.

Have you ever felt so alive
that it was almost too extreme?
And giving in to passion's drive
have you ever pursued a dream?

Have you ever received a kiss
that left you dancing on a cloud?
And filled with spontaneous bliss
have you ever laughed way too loud?

Have you ever floated on air
or felt warm and gooey inside?
And when strangers just smile and stare
have you ever near burst with pride?

Have you ever felt fully whole
falling head over heels in love? 
And felt such bliss within your soul
that it rivals heaven above?

Have you ever felt like crying
when someone special didn’t show?
And if it feels like you're dying
you won't ask what is love..you'll know

I Need Your Help Daddy

I’m tired
I’m Physically and Emotionally tired
I don’t want to be the strong one anymore
I can’t this time
I don’t know what to do Daddy
I need your help down here

I can’t get back in control of my emotions 
I’m having a hard time dealing with your absence
I’m having a hard time standing by myself
I need your help Daddy

I’m broken and lost without you Daddy
I need your will to want to carry on
I need your strength to over come this
I need your strength to stay standing
Your courage to fight back again
I need your help 

Please Daddy I’m at a loss
How am I suppose to do this
I need your guidance 
I need you to guide me back
To whom I was before
I need your help Daddy
I need your help

Soul mates solace

When my final shadows cling on desperately
Where I fight formidable battles
to merely hold the light
I send you loving vibrations
and soul sustenance
Deep from the cathedral
of one heart to another
where today no choirs sing
nor symphonies play
Yet it is here where we meet
in spiritual solace
here to surrender 
and exchange inestimable treasures
recollecting memories 
like unopened letters
Galaxies are stretched
over chronicles of shared history
Nebula birthing stars
will be exposed
in forth-coming conversations
bringing short-lived fulfillment to you
Hungry to feast
now will be the time
to approve your blood art vision
and with my own haunting surrender
as dappled shades ink stain your chest
I will reside with you and share, mesmerised 
pens - by branding
as this will be your written reams to me
your artist's pallet or brushed canvas
no need for words
and yet creating
mysterious magical moments
Bitter-sweet the music
that dances taut guitar strings
but now blood approved
please go kick your heel up
return to your laughter
and ride on the breeze
for not all are lost
change not
for I am with you always
to love, listen and comfort as one
with you in me and I in you
as masterpiece

Lonely Dreams

I never knew following dreams could be this lonely,
But up on the hill, looking back, thank God I'm not the old me.
If the tears will fall, let them be;
I believe this is God's plan, follow your dreams.

NO LIMITS, NO BOUNDARIES

I was just a bad boy to the core
I lived at every bar in town
Everybody knew my name,
I had a bad reputation, and I 
couldn't ask for more

Chorus 

That all changed when you walked 
into my life,
Your love changed this ole scoundrel
from a boy to a man and now you’re 
my wife 

The love that we share is so divine 
and I thank God everyday you are mine
Our love has no limits, no boundaries
Yeah no limits, no boundaries 

I don't miss the old day’s at all,
'cause I decided to answer
love’s call
You gave me a reason to live
And my darling, there's nothin I
wouldn't give

Repeat chorus 

The love that we share is so divine 
And i thank God every day, you are mine
Our love has no limits, no boundaries
Yeah no limits, no boundaries 

Bridge

I never believed in happily ever after
But you made a believer out of me,
Oh darling, you opened my eyes to love
and made a believer out of me
That's what really matters

 The love that we share is so divine 
I thank God everyday that you are mine
Our love has no limits,  no boundaries

Best Friend



There is nothing more heartening than a smile if you haven’t seen one for a while you hope it will never end it's not just pretend with a best friend it's no jest the Lord chose to send an angel to help you mend one that does not put love on trial there is nothing more heartening than a smile (Andaree) Feb.07,2018

Paranoid love

Tell me that this fear is just paranoia in my mind, 
we're not straining, we're not struggling, 
we're not sinking, we're just fine
I'm not perfect my dearest, but damn have I tried, 
and I'll try harder but I know I'll have the same results every time
Do you want me all the ways that I am? 
With all the struggles and the tears and the clinging to your hand
I fear your getting further and Im left on the shore to stand, 
watching you in the distance with a bullet in my hand
Tell me all this worry, its just clutter in my mind, 
tell me not to worry that we're doing just fine
Cause Im scared to run you off and I feel Im falling deep
And Im so frightened of these thoughts that its getting hard to sleep.
All I know is that the heart wants what it desires, 
because of you the match inside has turned into a fire
And I feel the broken glass thats sticking from my skin, 
Wondering if you'll remove the pain or push it back in
My hearts frantic wondering if you feel the same, 
pleading and begging for more than just a saying, 
but to feel and to see that im not alone, 
with being in this love thats overwhelming
Once I told you that we didnt have a spark, 
but you were lighting up and I was sitting in the dark
And this fire, this blaze its wrapped in desire
Im terrified to lose you, I think I might die or, 
maybe disappear from all the pieces falling out, 
im going crazy but when i open my mouth, nothing comes out, 
and I cant explain to you why I just need to hold you close, 
why every time you leave Im scared to let you go, 
why these tears are building up behind my eyes, 
all I know is that the heart wants what it desires 
and it desires to be your wife
So tell me in my panic, that your words are true, 
tell my my dearest what I mean to you, 
tell me that this paranoia is all within my mind 
we're not struggling, we're not sinking tell me we're just fine

I think back

When I think back...
 I see your eyes on me across the room,
 The way your lips slowly curve into a happy smile,
 Your strong arms holding a child,
 And I think back...
 Do you remember being the "Big Man" on campus back then?
 Or the easy ways of the women you've held?
 The loving hearts that you've shuttered and broke?
 And I think back...
 Do you remember those secret games we once played?
 Or the silent pleas to the Lord that you've made? 
 The loving family you've had and destroyed?
 And I think back...
 And I think back to the way things are and smile,
 And I think back to the way you were and I know,
 And I think back to the man you've become and I love you,
 And I thank back...then I thank God.

As we walk hand in hand

As we walk hand in hand

Today as we walk hand in hand
Happily through pure white sand
The love within my heart for thee
It flows to you so tenderly.

The ocean waves ebb to and thro
As hand in hand along we go
Bare feet in the silky sand
 The sun shines down and life’s so grand

We stop, the two of us and kiss
Oh how nice to feel such bliss
As love matures we two, entwined
Such perfect sweetness we do find

Today as we walk hand in hand
Happily through pure white sand.

I dreamed a dream of You

Yesterday I dreamed a dream,
that had no end.
You in your white gown, and long, black hair flowing.
You were calling my name.
I heard you, but I couldn't reach you!

And when I say your soul was tainted.
You went out in the night life.
You dressed in your black, evening ball gown.
You danced till the Red Sun came out, over the horizon.

You smiled at me.
A flame in my heart burned red hot!
My knees and hands shook with nerves;
Nerves of love and joy.
I blew you a kiss,
but you turned away!
Oh, please don't turn away from me,
for I would die, if it happened again!

Your beautiful and golden heart showed me the truth.
The truth that every gentleman wants to hear.
I've seen you walk the streets,
in the blue dawn of August.
As I followed you, you stopped and looked at me.
You smiled so beautifully, and my heart fluttered into oblivion!

You walked with your friends and I went my way.
I couldn't find a single trace of you that day.
I cried out "Why did I leave her like this?!"
I looked for you, all over the courtyards and town squares!
Yet no sight of your beauty.
..No sight of your golden heart, that I hold so dear to mine.
Where did you go?
Why did you leave?
Why did I leave..that is the question!

I should have stayed by your side,
till the ends of time.

Yet I had left.
Why...?

One gloomy and parish midnight.
I came along a road,
and soon found myself in front of a wayward cafe.
Smiling faces all around me.
I spotted a beautiful face that outstood all the other faces around me.
It was yours.

Your face brought me to sanity and I went over too you!
You spotted me and tried to run!
I caught you in the dirty hallway and pulled you in.

Our eyes met and I fell in love once again.
Sanity re-entered my mind, body and soul.
I kissed you and you kissed back.
You held my hand, and we left the cafe and walked down the street.

The street was gloomy, yet we together brightened the dark street.
We went back to the lit up city streets, of the lands filled with smiling faces,
and we fell in love and slept together.

You lay there in my restless arms and I gave you a sweet kiss,
upon your sweet and soft head.
Your dark hair was sweet smelling and felt of silk.
I closed my eyes and fell asleep with you,
there in my arms and we dreamed together
till the morning came and woke me up,
and took you away from my weak and weary arms.

I dreamed a dream of you.

Adieu

Adieu, Adieu my love and friend At the sea we two must part Your love will burn until the end In the beating of my heart. Shed not a tear in silence Not a tremble to your breath As your tears are flowing I die a mournful death. Under moon's soft silver blush And in the creeping of the dew In sober breeze, in nightly hush Let us bade one last Adieu. When morn had burst the harbors With a burning sigh we knew A final whisper, the final words: Adieu! Adieu! Adieu!
(Goodbyes are not forever. Goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean I'll miss you Until we meet again!)

BACK WHEN I WAS A CHILD

The song that moves and
 touches my heart is dance 
with my father again.
Because I will never forget 
the man my father was.
Back when I was a child 
I longed to be in his 
presence.
He had a larger than life
personality
His nieces and nephews
looked at him as a father.
“Oh lord I’m dying to dance 
with my father again”.
Everytime I hear the song I 
begin to cry.
I long for his hug
I long to hear his voice
“Oh lord I’m dying to dance
 with my father
again”
“ Oh lord we’re all dying
 to dance with my father 
again”.

WHEN I LOVE THEE

I LOVE THEE I am no voluptuous beauty nor do I live a life of purity I can only say: I love wholeheartedly with all I am so truthfully I keep my heart open though it gets hurt so often I avoid to be irate as I know love changes the heart rate.. Guys tried to coo and woo, they say words as for "only you" Yet, hard to believe it is true as I see some untrue I give chances as my heart marks with tact entrances I learned from various instances looking man in romances In places where rules impede, two persons who wants to bid Not of money but of affection, in them must be determination I love thee not of what you have… Not even of who you are but to how you are to me… If I love you, don't tell me much what to do… As me, myself will show you, I am that real and true.. Yes, I am liked by many but tell you what: I don't like this honey nor am I proud of it in anyway One is enough to make me stay Stand with me through it all, I give my best not to fall My name your sweetest call echoing in every wall.. Hold me firm yet dear; allow me to move closely We'll make it anyhow, treading smoothly on flows... We are strong, aren't we? No one moving alone Together we'll face phases in tune, though there will dunes.. ________________________________________________________ © OLIVE ELOISA DGUILLERMO 3:25 pm, 07/13/2013 ***CONTEST: ANY POEM GOES #13 SPONSOR: POET DESTROYER 8TH PLACE (TO GOD BE THE GREATEST GLORY) ***Sponsor SKAT A Contest Name Any Old Poem #5 4th place

A Delicate Force

Eager to bring a smile to my day
you cater to me in every way.
And I bask in the light of your love
reserved for me and the Lord above.

Hope embellishes fanciful dreams
while wishes are cast on pale moonbeams.
And passion’s flickering flames begin
igniting desires that burn within

When alone and subjected to pain
I think of you and my fears are slain.
For futures are built on trust and truth
garnered from the innocence of youth

Gleaning strength from special moments shared
borrowing your courage I'm less scared.
For swept up by a delicate force
indescribable love guides my course.

Sharing a kiss set adrift in time
this magic journey is made sublime
For all my doubts are vanquished at last
like fading ghosts of an ancient past.

You Will Know Love

If you can make it through the day
Not concerned with what others say
If you can take the time to play
Yet get your work done come what may
If you win having never fought
And mend the bridges time has tore
Or be content with what you’ve got
And very rarely ask for more;

If you can make a house a home
And properly raise children too
If you can stay and never roam
And do it cause it’s what you do
If you can speak bad of no one
Cause gossip's not worth repeating
Or stick to a task till it’s done
And never think of retreating;

If you can keep your life savings
And not risk it on a gamble
And avoid expensive cravings
And allow your friends to ramble
If you can force yourself to cope
And do what it takes to survive
And live on little more than hope
And the will which keeps you alive;

If you can hold your head up high
Or stoop to help the poor and such
If you seek truth and not a lie
If you can heal with but a touch
If you can be mother and wife
And still find time for God above
Yours is the Earth and a good life
And what is more, you will know love!

What's my life without love

They say beauty defines you 
But I think your heart defines you
Your heart is an unique jewel 
Made to be shined and loved 

Your heart and my heart are no different 
They beat the same joy of living 
Maybe sing different tunes 
But their rhythms are exactly alike

Fragile maybe but heartbeat strong
Tireless to care and smile
They sing they cry they fly they fall 
They go thru a lot yet unrelenting to beat on 
 
Baby your heart is beautiful 
You can't do no wrong letting it shine 
Remember risk is where reward comes from
Perchance happiness 

As my heart is soft and yes fragile 
Been broken and cried countless times 
Yet relentless to love on 
Because what's my life without love


        Smile

Your Love So Sweet

Your Love So Sweet

You and I like stars we beam,
we’re Earth and Moon entwined forever.
You’re in every lucid dream,
igniting passion and desire.

I see rainbows all the time;
see them perched on tranquil blue skies.
Summer days wear sunny smiles,
and we’re like sweet grapes on a vine.

Chorus:
There were times when life brought me down,
I didn’t know if I could ever be found.
There you were… you breathed me back to life.
Now I’m a rose in paradise.

I’m gonna bloom with your heart beat…
beating in rhythm with mine.
I wanna sip on love so sweet;
you’re much sweeter than wine.

With our love we’re stars that shine,
for all eternity together.
Yes, I’m yours and you are mine,
we surrender only to each other.

Chorus:
There were times when life brought me down,
I didn’t know if I could ever be found.
But there you were… you breathed me back to life.
Now I’m a rose in paradise.

I’m gonna bloom with your heart beat…
beating in rhythm with mine.
I wanna sip on love so sweet;
you’re much sweeter than wine.

I’m gonna bloom with your heart beat…
beating in rhythm with mine.
I wanna sip on love so sweet;
you’re much sweeter than wine.

I Want To Know What Love Is by Foreigner

I gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over
I’d better read between the lines
In case I need it when I'm older

Now this mountain I must climb
Feels like a world upon my shoulders
all I through the clouds I see love shine
It keeps me warm as life grows colder

In my life there's been heartache and pain 
I don't know if I can face it again 
Can't stop now, I've traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me

I'm gonna take a little time
A little time to look around me
I've got nowhere left to hide
It looks like love has finally found me

In my life there's been heartache and pain
I don't know if I can face it again 
I can't stop now, I've traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
And I wanna feel 
I want to feel what love is

A Blanket Of Love


Two aging lovers emotionally tethered to each other know that death will come for one of them first. And as time takes its toll sadness swells up within their hearts when they think about it The acceptance of the inevitability of the other’s death triggers tears, a very human experience Such feelings come straight from the heart where love’s a two edged sword. Memories gently roll through their minds exploring their sphere of recognition And like old films of days gone by, they chuckle at long forgotten escapades of two children, lost in innocent play. They recall broken dreams with some regret yet, they’re wrapped in a blanket of love for when you share one heart, all times are happy ones They often retreat to their own internal space where they face a tide of sad emotions that ebb and flow as the years unfold Their apprehensions of who will die first strikes a cord of uncertainty, that vibrates within both their hearts. When the time comes to die, you simply close your eyes let out a breath, and say a silent yes! Dying’s not the scary part...living on is! Feb.1, 2018

Poem for Poem

Poem for poem, rhyme for rhyme
I'll continue to write, until it's time
Time being death, which I never see close to me
Sometimes I find placement in places I don't want to be
Like in your conversations, did we forget my positivity?
Like how I helped them at their worst, after they've begged me constantly
I'm running out of options as well as doing favors
Handouts become expected from those I consider takers
Rekindling former loves can become very likely
I could tag one in with Nick and make a special trip to Raleigh
My time is valued more, and I choose how I spend it
By now they've realized my love has no limit
Part 2 was about you know who, I hope she liked it
You never know what you like at first, until you try it
Old feelings, new women, mismatching
Old friends, new rivals, backstabbing
I feel sharper than I did at 8:00pm
Thinking back to the issue, it was best ignoring that DM
All problems became trivial once I showed them what Happiness is
Expression of a man, loving mothers and their kids
Yet, it's so easy for words to become twisted
The bullet misses the target, then the meaning becomes misted
Count on being forgiven for things I didn't do
Addressed it in full, all love from me to you

Poem for poem, rhyme for rhyme
I hope through the hard times, I remain on your mind
We're not perfect nor are we saints
Not even as Xavier, shall I discard restraint
I've fulfilled my Ideas of Gold
Even if the expression was Too Much
These are thoughts that I hold
Never too sensitive to touch

MAKE ME DREAM

A thousand times I’ve wanted to share
These euphoric sensations I feel inside
But you’ll never see this longing heart
Cause It’s far too easy to hide.I hide

I know that I want what I can’t have 
But girl your words can make me dream
And when I get lost in your poetic lines
Nothing that’s real is what it seems

I close my eyes and almost feel your kiss 
Your tender touch takes my breath away
That look you give, oh wow it draws me in
Your scent, I’m speechless.no words to say

On your page your works lay me bare
If not for guilt, my soul I’d confide
God knows I’d sail across the furthest sea
If in the end.in you I’d hide, I’d hide

And just like that your final line is read
Your pen is down and I suddenly awake
That mesmerizing face now just an avatar
Give me more words before it’s too late
Your next write my only hope to escape
A thousand times I’ve wanted to share

~Lyric Man

Note: Back from a long journey across the PondMissing you all was my energy source for this writeBut were You a specific inspiration.Yes, of course!

I couldn't Give myself to you

Distance over depth my dear..
Is this the end of the affair...
Time is like a noose..
Its wrapped around our necks, slowing breaths of shared regrets , 
but those times inside my bed, where you came time and time again, 
its where you'd knock to let me in, within your eyes I'd learned to swim....

but I couldn't give myself to you, the way you want me tooAnd you couldn't give yourself to me the way that I believed..

This bohemian rhapsody,is tangled up in blue, these times they are a changing , I will always love you
Times still like a noose
A'int no sunshine when's she's gone, she sells sanctuary all night long, you do something to me, your a painkiller in this bitter sweet symphony, so don't you forget about me...
 
But if I could give myself to you, the way you'd want me too, please know that I would, for in us there was only goodBut distance berates the miss understood.

eggshells

From a mouthful of this morning’s eggs,
I pull bits of char from yesterday’s breakfast.
‘I had no chance to scrub the pan’, I plea with myself-
But I still smash it over my skull
like a cartoon.

Every morning I wake up 
feeling last night’s feelings,
thinking last night’s thoughts,
about what’s happening 10 years ago, 
and what happened tomorrow.

If you add up every 
simultaneous
suffocating
moment 
I fight through- 
just to say:

‘i love you’

It would stretch for longer than I’ve known you,
which is longer than I’ve been alive.

There was no ‘today’ in my broken egg
No difference between coming or going,
to an automaton in purgatory 
who saw life through the pinhole eyes 
of a cardboard mask won at a birthday party 
I never asked for.
The sky looked like the ceiling of a small, dark closet.
and flowers looked like plastic bargain bin decor 
coated in lead paint, the kind left on roadside graves.
I used to count those as a child,
on the way to destinations 
I still dread my arrival to.

If I were brave enough to show you my awe and my terror
of loving the one who revealed 
the world as something real, all this time-

I would sink face down in dirty bathwater 
choking on wet, laughing sobs
until my fingerprints wrinkled away
and tear at my clammy skin 
until my soft nails bent backward
and paint red bruises all over my trembling body
that would spell out a primitive language 
neither of us had the chance to learn

This is my best guess:

‘i am just a bad thing that happened
a book of false memories and blind feelings
You are a very fast reader,
You’ll soon reach the end of me.’

I remember drawing a map in crayon 
of every ditch I saw myself lying in
strange, unnatural positions.
Like I'd been struck by a car,
and someone shoved my body away
so I wouldn’t mess up the next one.

home

lingering softly
in the angelic silence
of a magical new night...

i remember whispered words
the softness of your breath
tingling the nape of my neck...

your eyes deep pools
touch light as a feather
my head on your chest...

the sea scented air
delicately cocooned us
our lips barely touched...

waves lulled our own melody
of sweet sacred tunes
as hearts became one...

i remember the moment
that time stood still...

how do i describe
something bigger than words...

for in the air
that i breathe

it is you
who has blessed me...

heaven sent you
from the stars above...

the sound of your heartbeat
was when i knew...

i

was

home.

Embracing A Dream

Today my heart feels overwhelmed by love
beyond happiness I’m soaring above.

So gentle, yet it harbors such power
that lingers like the scent of a flower.

I thought that I understood who I was
until I felt the magic that it does.

I cannot put my feelings into words
they eclipse the sun and out fly the birds.

I opened my heart accepting love's gift
and my inhibitions were set adrift.

Love's such an extraordinary feeling
it completes me and leaves my heart reeling.

I’m floating on billowing clouds of bliss
embracing a dream blessed by a kiss.

I Believe

I believe God exists with all of my heart
and I pray His Spirit will never depart.
For my soul recognizes He is Divine,
with infinite wisdom that I can’t define.

A void in my life is filled with His Being
faith affirms that I believe without seeing.
And through miracles of conception and birth
is how eternal souls experience earth.

By acting through others His love is revealed
His Presence in their hearts cannot be concealed.
And my soul senses that His love serves us all
you need but ask and He'll forgive any fall.

He lives in my heart influencing my fate
His message is love never anger or hate.
And His love is too real to merely dismiss
His Spiritual Presence fills me with bliss.

BOOKS-MERAKI


My love and my passion is to get lost in a book,
titles alone captivate me and I have to take a look.
They hold pieces of the past and contain mystery,
I enjoy finding out chapters of old, I gain history.

When money is tight, I can travel to various places,
and different cultures emerge and I see new faces
I am a hopeless romantic so I read for sure pleasure,
Who knows what I will find? Books are what I treasure.

As a child I endured a tremendous amount of pain,
a beautiful novel gave a hurt girl shelter from the rain.
They allowed me to be or do anything, I became free,
I believe in the written word,it did wonders for me.
