    1. Thank you so much, Bojana. I really apreciate your comment. As for your blog, I asked for permission. Am I in?

       
    1. Thank you so much, Matt. I did not not have the time to fully explore Spillwords. I am learning from you. Your vote means a lot for me.

       
      1. They are a great team. They treat me very well too. I just need to learn more about. Also I need to connect with more Spillwords writers. I did not get a chance to do that yet.

  1. Congrats, Gabriela! Your poem is beautifully written, full of vibrant and sensual imagery. It has reminded me of the time I spent in Naples many years ago. I especially love this part of your poem:

    “your love for me
    a million of daggers
    will cut the arteries of the blue sea
    my luscious lips buried in blood and dust from the volcano
    erotically settled in your poetry”

    Thank you so much for taking the time to read my poem. I really appreciate this. However, there is a much better writer than me, whom I strongly recommend you and all your followers. It is my friend Mario Savioni. His novel “Pickles and Tarts” (very short chapters, easy to read), is a story where 54-year-old Frank has been selected by 19-year-old Nicole through a dating site. Frank looks at Nicole’s photos on the site and is attracted to her beauty. Nicole tells him she has a boyfriend and is not interested in a romantic relationship. She adds: “It’s fun to talk to different people sometimes.” The only apparent thing Frank and Nicole seem to have in common is their interest to write stories. Perhaps they want to meet just to write one together? Now Frank has already started to imagine this story, a story-within-the-main-story. “Pickles and Tarts” is a lovely story of illusion-delusion, dream-reality, non-conformist with the Capitalist system, reflective on love, sex, drugs, abuse, loneliness and human relationships in today’s world. It is profound and highly intriguing. I recommend chapters 11 and 12 that especially deal with sexual abuse, bullying and loneliness:

  2. I clicked over and reread this one. I remembered it from the first lines. LOVE this so much! It’s funny; the first time I read it took me back to the sorrow of an overdramatic love affair I had in Greece in my youth. This time it took me to the same relationship but into all the fire and magic that kept us together creating memories for a tiny slice of time. Amazing how a mood colours everything we take it, isn’t it? But WOW, Gabrielle, Congratulations and Thank You so much for Your wonderful poetry! Cheers!!! 🤗❤️😊

     
    1. ” Amazing how a mood colours everything we take it, isn’t it?” You are right. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this unbelievable comment. Thank you for sharing too. It means a lot to me.

       
      1. Oh gosh, it’s my absolute pleasure!!! And wow! I was spell challenged all the way around yesterday! 🤣 Meant to write “…take in…” Sending huge hugs Your way!!! 🤗💖😊

         
    1. No need to apologize. I am so grateful to you for reading my work and appreciating it. THANK YOU!
