Who is Jaggedfrost?`

I am yet back where I was

and for that frustrated in cause

I would leave an essence of me

something here that you can see

and might bid you to read my various works

drink in deeply and tell me how you feel

how you think

perhaps giving thought to any reply by me

but knowing that you feel and think about it at all

is all I ask of these simple works

perhaps I am a fraud in declaring simplicity

but forgive my felony

in favor of a demure

as I am not as proud as my flowery tongue

more used to masks

then reality at times

wishing you well in someway

which might portray

a tuxedo for the eyes

respect and black tie for the mind.

I enjoy your work...sometimes it's a little too religious for me...but when you do Poetry and open your heart...I'm loving it...like this piece!

Malin, if it weren't for the fact that I too am working on a manuscript I would visit your site more often. It is good to see you again. I happen to be a very religious person but it would seem that I need lessons in human discourse outside of my very deep and poignant thoughts about existence. Sometimes I am too grave for my own good I think.

Hillrider, that is either an edit on my work or a sign that you liked it. I would love to know which lol.

JFrost - a compliment. Sometimes within the tympany a still voice, is just as loud. Volume is relative...

volumn for me is insignificant next to comprehension and understanding. I thank you for the compliment.

It behooves me to remark that your work is phenomenal. I have been reading through your poems and I am in awe of the deep and sometimes twisted presence you have. It's a rarity to find intelligence that is scripted such as you have done. I'm a fan. One up and beautiful for this one...
