Sorry, Ally, but I beg to differ. Your comments are every bit as eloquent as my own, even more so, I'd say!

Sorry about that! I'd meant to say, 'Wow, Ally, thank you for reading, tiling, and providing such gracious commentary with regard to my poem, 'Among Us.'

Wow, Ally, thank you for reading, tiling, and providing such gracious complimentary with regard to my poem, 'Among Us.' That was exceptionally kind of you and I really appreciate the wonderful gesture. I was especially moved because you're a writer of the first caliber, of the finest grade, and it's the highest compliment to receive such praise from someone who's so talented, creative, and insightful as you.

I was really moved when I'd read your poem, 'It's Time For This to End.' I'd found it to be in lockstep with 'Among Us' as I was reading it, concluding that both of our poems pertained to the escalating tensions, problems, and evil that currently face our world in these modern, troublesome, times. I'd written 'Among Us' as a cautionary piece for others to read, particularly with regard to those who are over-confident or careless with their welfare and safety.

It's odd, though, how the evil in this world has propagated so much, so quickly. Sure, evil has always been present in my lifetime, but never like this. I speak with those who are my peers, those who I've known since my childhood, and they agree with me, that there is a mounting escalation with regard to evil and its current effect upon this world. If you do happen to watch the movie 'Frailty,' you'll see what I mean by that.

It's funny, for whatever reason, I've lived a fairly interesting and instructive life. I'm someone who didn't believe in much of anything up until my late teens. Whether it be God, the soul, Heaven, good, evil, spirits, precognition, fate, haunted houses, etc., I didn't believe in any of it.

Then, beginning from the age of 17-18 years old, I'd encountered all of these unusual and revelatory experiences, ones which had, directly, countered my previous beliefs and shown me otherwise. My encounters with evil were no less instructive, revealing to me that the world, its populace, and problems were polluted and affected by the miasma of evil whenever possible, whenever evil could gain a foothold.

Fortunately, I've also experienced and witnessed many instances of the influence of good during my lifetime, as well. If you read 'He Stares Down from a Cloud,' if you should choose to do so, you'll see what I mean by that.

Well, I've got to get going. As always, though, it's been a true pleasure reading your amazing and creative writing and being the beneficiary of your kind, gracious, and charitable commentary upon my own writing.

Have a great day, Ally!

Hey Ally. Once again, thank you so much for taking the time to read and tile my poem, 'As the Fool Dances through Life.' I really appreciate the kind gesture and have finally returned the favor by reading, tiling, and commenting upon your poem, 'Darkness Lies.'

I apologize for my delay in doing so. I have a very busy and hectic life, one which affords me little free time. I commend you for your amazing talent as a writer and thank you for sharing your gift with those of us within the Figment community. Have a great day! Adam

Ally, thank you so much for 'hearting' my poem, 'As the Fool Dances through Life.' I really appreciate the kind gesture and hope that it entertained you when you read it. I'll try to return the favor back to you sometime soon.

Funnily enough, I'd written that piece not so much with anyone else in mind, but with it, instead, applying to myself, as that I'd been that 'fool' at one time in my life. Back when I was immature and irresponsible. Thankfully, that time has passed and I've become a better person from having stared into the abyss and learning something from the experience.

Have a great day!

Adam
