The Words I’ve Said To, You, You & You..

A week ago, I was reading through a few comments that I had said on my blog site, about my poems, and in reply to my readers. Then I thought of this crazy idea, to go through all of my comments on all of my posts, now going back six months, and wow, I do like to chat, I found out, yep, literally “thousands” of comments. Unbelievably I decided to sift through all those silly words, and present a bunch of them in this article……. ย  some Ivor Quotes, some humourous lines, and of course some of Ivor’s words from the heart……

The Start.

* “Yes, Carole was truly amazing, and totally my inspiration in everything I aspire to be and wish to achieve”

* “Just like nature itself, true love must survive the elements also”

* “Inspired by a concreter not showing up today”

* “Wow, there’s a world tissue shortage, this could be serious”

* “Between life and love, there seems no time to dwell”

* “Haha, I’ll bring my sleeping bag”

* “But I suppose that’s what nuclear war is, one big mass of human Stupidity”

* “I’m not really into awards, I find them personally daunting”

* “Amazing what an angry pen can write” and “The Adrenaline took over my pen”

* “Ha, the things that I say with a few beers in me !!”

* “I think sharing, is like caring for yourself”

* “Life wrenches at your heartstrings, continuously”

* “I know, I listen to all those poet/singer/songwriters while I’m writing, their influence is undeniable, and I’m happy with that…”

* “I haven’t got your sort of handbag”

* “I’m not that lovely, if I’m killing off one of the tattooed blondes”

* “Not sure how poetic I am, but I do know that my soul dwells in an ocean filled by my tears”

* “My frozen nuts are still thawing out, I suppose they’ll be ok, I’ve never frozen my nuts before”

* “Love is like a big creamy sponge cake, beautiful at the start, but if you eat too much, makes you sick inside….. hehe, I loved my mum’s sponge cakes”

* “Writing is wonderful medicine for my heart, and my words expose my soul”

* “Haha, for a little bloke, I’m not sure how I get so deep”

* “It wasn’t my fault, you readers made me do it. I was going to stop at my 50 word poem for SMM, but no, all the softies wanted My Dragon to live, so I had to revive him, and then some of my fervent readers wanted more !! Me being a nice guy had to oblige, hehe”

* “The answers are still “Blowin In The Wind” and that’s 50 years ago now ??”

* “It was a little poem for a little dog, but they give us huge unconditional love in return”

* “Us humans can be quite emotional critters”

* “Ivor, are you some sort of sadist, throwing all these melancholy words at your dear readers”

* “It’s supposed to make you cry, I cried my eyes out while I was writing it…..”

* “Like throw away words written on a boomerang”

* “Can I be at the back, of the front-line”

* “I do write unabridged from the heart”

* “I don’t try to do the unexpected, I’m not sure, it just happens that way ….”

* “I love waterfalls and I was sitting there in dream-time thinking of her …….”

* “Like the calm seas, may the cool waters caress your soul”

* “I hope your heart is bathing itself in the soothing oils of your glorious soul”

* “Well I suppose it was, and I suppose it will be”

* “I’ve never drowned myself yet, but I think falling in love is the closest analogy I’m able to imagine”

* “I like that, Sir Ivor, Lord Of Word Wizardry, thanks Walt”

* “Remedy,, my mum said, add more salt, … my dad said, add more water. Either way, every comment you make, is an answer”

“Double Humbug”

* “I’ll drink to that”

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

      1. Hi Jane I’ve just finished a poem, inspired by our chat yesterday, You’ll notice all of The Kinks song in the slanted letters. I’m not sure, but would I be allowed to post this. ??
        โ€œWhere Have All The Good Times Goneโ€

        I remember the olden times
        Of pennies and farthings
        Pounds and pence
        When money made no sense
        Mary Hopkins sang
        โ€œThose Were The Daysโ€
        And the Kinks song โ€œLolaโ€
        Was the best number one ever
        Many a lazy “Sunny Afternoon”
        Spent down near “Waterloo Sunset”
        Where we would all dance
        “All Of The Day And All Of The Night”
        “My Friends” would all dress-up
        “Like Dedicated Followers Of Fashion”
        Unlike that lonely “Plastic Man”
        Who faked the “Death Of A Clown”
        Way back then, “You Really Got Me”
        You fired me up, here in “Victoria”
        Thousands of “Days” forgotten in the burn-out
        Charred in a cloud of “Big Black Smoke”
        But now, “I’m Tired Of Waiting For You”
        So, “Where Have All The Good Times Gone”

        Whoops the slanty letter didn’t paste so I’ve ” ” marks.

      2. This is brilliant! You mentioned that you wanted to do something with the Kinks titles but I would never have expected it to work quite this well.
        If you want italics, you have to use HTML. I’d show you how, but, because of the way it works, you wouldn’t be able to see it…
        Now go post your amazing poem xx

      3. Thanks Jane, I’ve got tge italics part worked out, I’m good at bumbling on my computer, and it helps that I’m persistent and stubborn. And yes I surprised myself, the “titles” seem to fall into place for me, I suppose it helps to have a weird and warped imagination. It’s Midnight here so I’ll post it soon.๐Ÿ˜†, nearly ready to go.
