"It was 28th June, 1987 at 7-30 PM when I reached Thrissur, my home town in my native state of Kerala in India, hearing that my mother was seriously ill and was admitted to a hospital. I had to fly from Dubai the previous night via Kuwait and Goa, rather than by a direct flight to my state capital. When I reached the hospital, it was too late and she had passed away, just ten minutes prior to my arrival at the hospital. I looked at her motionless ..." Read review

Twas the night before Christmas

AdvantagesA Christmas poem for Ciao members

DisadvantagesSorry if I have not included you all

"Hello COT, do some of you remember Miss American Pie by Don MClean? This is my Christmas tribute to you all in festive vein. Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a Snowbunni was stirring, not even a mouse. The stockings were hung by Mrsmopples with care, In hopes that St Loopymum soon would be there. Terry and Art were nestled all snug in their beds, While idioms and identity crises played hell with their heads. And ..." Read review

Sapphires

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesToo many

"Been racking my brains whether to publish this but my Bro said that he would like me too. His son, my oldest Nephew, died at the age of 18 after a car accident, early December 2006.

AdvantagesN/A

DisadvantagesN/A

"I have spent a couple of weeks now getting used to this site and have written a couple of reviews based on my collection of girly films and cheesy pop music! However, I noticed that many people had written creative writing type pieces that were not reviewing products and I toyed with the idea of submitting one of my poems for several days as I hate people reading my work (it's not so good!) but in the end I have decided to go for it (I'm still not ..."

all because of you

Advantagesleting go and loving someone

Disadvantagespain, suffering and agony

"All because of you is about coping with death and other things that aren’t so rosy in life. At the end is who it is dedicated to and why. I hope that you read on in this poem and enjoy! Thank you for your time. I saw you lying there, Lying helpless in front of me, With tubes coming out of you, Coming out and going back in. You had always been there to hold my hand, Hold my hand when things got tough, But now you’re just going, Going somewhere ..." Read review
