he bids my forgiveness that
i have been used for his cause
so close he is talking to me
i think he has been speaking to
the part of my mind that holds me
i wish he can be a friend always
always because no one has
been able to be so close yet so comforting

Nice use of words and imagery. The poet succeeded in bringing to life what many considered ordinary. The hallmark of a good poet
This is really cool.... I need to read more of James' pieces... On the quarter thumbnail of the moon... What a wonderful description of this pond holding tadpoles who can not see - can not chase the light yet... This is really cool...
They can't see! However, the ways of life are not always smooth. Nice piece.
So sad how these fated small frogs met their death. When time arrives death overtake life in matter of seconds. Nice poem.
