*hugs*

Don't pick at yourself if you're not ready then.

I'm glad you found the poem powerful. You can always come back to it later, if you find yourself thinking about it in context of things you are processing at that time.

>>I may well. I was unable to stop reading it even tho it was hard, which often indicates something on the edge, but not quite there.<<

0_o I had not realized that the flypaper-for-eyeballs effect was quite that strong.

>> Edit: I also just noticed that the url for this comment has a 666 in it. Just caught my eye, given the subject matter of the poem. <<

*LAUGH* I guess somebody down there found it entertaining.

"I had not realized that the flypaper-for-eyeballs effect was quite that strong."

Errr, all your work has a pretty good dose of glue added to it but this one has more than most with your unique treatment of redemption. We're talking about glue traps for wild hogs here...!)

Re: *hugs*

I know about it in general. I've learned not to leave out stories for my_partner_doug to read right before bedtime or errand time.

The redemption theme does seem to be growing as this series continues. Minds me of something I picked up from my Waterjewel characters: "No one is unsalvageable who does not choose to be."

"No one is unsalvageable who does not choose to be."
That in of itself is a potent magnet.
A fascinating idea I once read from something Piers Antony wrote meshes well with it:
'Only those have souls who care about them.'
Sometimes in my darker moments, it's comforted me as well.

Yeah, they have caught a lot of people with that one.

I have found that an excellent rule of thumb. The ability to wonder about things is an important aspect of sentience.
