From this day forth

I’ll be careful. Today someone I’ve read and followed 2 years on WP sent me the ugliest response. I had written on their page “well done posting about the kidnapped girls being released who were returned home I wish more was said in the media as they ignore it but at least some of us care, glad you do.” They wrote back ” I didn’t see you posting about them so it’s stupid you say that, don’t speak, act.” Then they said ” and stop lying you troll I’m not your friend.”

I was being genuine and appreciative and friendly. Sorry if calling someone a “friend” and saying good post leads to character assassination. For the record I DO tell the truth, and i DO ACT.
Sick of assholes whose mission is to put good people down. From hence forth I’m being less friendly, less honest and won’t dare call anyone a friend. Yes i know the difference between an online friend and a IRL friend, sonetimes people can be both, sonetimes just an acqaintance. Too many truly shirty souls out there. FUCK this.

  1. And thank you for you. I’m so sorry that you were hurt and I hope seeing how many people love you will wash away the pain and replace it with peace. Love from one friend to another ❤

  2. You, me, many of us, are sensitive and though it means some parts of life hurt us more, it also means we see and bring more beauty, compassion and kindness… this is what I mean when I say I, and the world need you. The world needs more sensitive souls. If we thicken our hides, we lose some of the beautiful part too. ❤

  3. I do consider you my friend, indeed! (Still playing catch-up on my reading…) You express yourself so lovingly… ❤

  4. That person is an idiot. People sink to the worst of themselves online, and it’s such a shame when talented, kind, and truly thoughtful people like you get caught in their cross-hairs. Your comments have made my day on more than one occasion. Please don’t let one nasty ass-hat take you down!

  5. Very well said. So true, I am one of those. You are too. That’s why we relate and get on, in part, and I agree, the world does need a balance always. Thank you so much for your support. You have mine in equal number. xo

  6. Forget that person. I’m new to this community and you’ve already made me feel welcomed. I’ll be your friend.

  7. So sorry to hear about the bad experience! Sometimes the internet brings out the worst in people.

    Just please keep posting your awesome poetry and commentary. Sometimes your work is as jarring and perspective-changing as a tab of blotter acid, and at all times it is luminous and beautiful.

  8. You are brilliant….. Continue writing please. For you it is important. I am no longer
    I don’t like the writing- deleted everything. Time for me to stop. Thank you for every thing…..


  10. Candice Louisa,
    you will always by my poetry boo!!!!
    Some people are good about telling you where they stand. Others lie in the weeds.
    Take a breath.
    As we say in Texas: “It ain’t nothing but a thing.” ( with a much heavier drawl, of course)
    Don’t let that ***thing*** stink up your path.
    Be glad that you now know where to sweep, mop, and disinfect.
    Get back into the swing of things.
    ❤ ❤ ❤
    YOUR friend,
    P.S. I dig your take on Mental Health – advocates are very hard to get these days.

  11. Usually I just click like on your posts but I didn’t want to like this post because that was mean and cruel of the poster. I think your posts are genuine and very thought-provoking. Keep being you and keep up the good work

  12. Dear Larry, wow thank you I don’t know what I did to deserve such a nice message but I am really happy to receive it and grateful to you! BTW I’m in Texas too neighbor! Where abouts? (must be Dallas way if you got the drawl, am I right?) xoxo (you made me crack up laughing with ‘poetry boo’ I may just have to keep that one!’

  13. Yesterday I went to your site and I saw it was closed I thought it was one of those WP hink things OR that you were online as sometimes you cannot get to someone’s site when they are doing things. But now I read you are closing it? What happened? I wish that you would not close it. I mean I know I can talk as I did (but I regretted it) but I wish that you would not. I’m very sorry to hear that and I think you have a lot to offer writing-wise. I understand it has to be your decision I respect that but I hope you will reconsider and also that you will keep in touch irerspective of what your final decision is. You have my email and I hope I hear from you just to know you are okay?

  14. Dear Fin, I agree. I appreciate so much your support and your encouragement and your time writing this and reading me. Please know I read you with the same gusto (I don’t think I have ever used that word before but it seemed so apropos!) and am grateful for you

  15. Thank you for saying that. You write and post with such bravery and skill that most of us readers just envy you your brilliance in the perfect turn of phrase and occasional malapropism most appropriate. So we forget that you too are a pilgrim on the same journey, desiring a kind word same as us all.

    And as always, thank you for visiting and recognizing my posts. Your time and attention are most kind, and your comments always add a touch of class.

  16. Dearest Fin, thanks for saying that about bravery means a lot since I try to ‘go where I fear’ in writing. Thank yo. I really appreciate your appreciation (mouthful!) I am a pilgrim I like that phrase and idea we’re all in this together. Thank you so much you have me beaming from ear to ear!
