Heartbeats on the Oscilliscope of Life: A Diary

ElectricPoetry Diary 2001-2002

Original ElectricPoetry Site





In 1978 I wrote 67poems.

 The Poetry of 1978: I wrote profusely. I wrote sixty poems for Cathy D. I never loved anyone as much as I loved her, and only now can I truthfully say the love has subsided. For an analysis of the relationshipsee "Why I Cry" the introduction to the (few) poems of 1979. I think I shall never cry again.
