|Crikey. It's been a long, long time since I last posted anything here. There seem to be a lot of new faces in the "Yesterday's Top" list. I'll check your stuff out when I get some spare time. I also see lots of familiar faces in there: hello to you guys too! I promise to read and comment on as much as your stuff as possible in the future. I sure have missed it.|
Anyway, on to the real point of this post. I just wanted to explain why I've been away and appear to have neglected the site. I've not only been very, very, very busy (I severely underestimated the work load university brings!) but I've been going through a rough patch at home. My parents are going through a separation at the moment. The last few months have been a stressful time in my life. What with assignment deadlines and big arguments blowing up left, right, and centre, my life has not been a place conducive to producing (or reading) poetry. Quite frankly, it's been the last thing on my mind.
This makes me sad. Just typing in the words "got poetry" into Google this evening brought a rare smile to my face. I remembered how great it was to share and enjoy the fantastic work that gets posted on this site day after day. I also consider a few of you to be true friends, and I've missed that friendship. It might have seemed a small gesture at the time, but the small messages asking how I was and wishing me well, from the likes of FushiaFestival and Leggolas, made me feel as though I was a valued part of a true community. Not to mention the surprising amount of comments I've received on my poems over the past two years. I have a lot of you to thanks for making my day, day after day. It's mind-blowing to see people appreciate something you've invested time and effort in. That warm feeling you get when you see that something you have put your heart and soul into has been enjoyed by others is really hard to match. I've never truly had a chance to say this to you guys so, Thank You.
Right. Now I've got that out of the way (sorry if I sounded a bit soppy!), I'm not going to make any promises. It'd be silly of me to say that I'm going to go on a comment frenzy, or even that I'm going to post poetry again. I'm not. But I will remember how the poems written here bring a smile to my face. I'll return to them when I can. I'll read as much as I can, and I'll get back to posting when I can. Things are finally calming down and my life is back into some sort of order. I'll be as right as rain in no time. Thanks for reading.
