Arlene's Favorite Song: "Silent All These Years" - Tori Amos


Arlene M. Longson's Profile:
I am 42 years old, and live on vancouver Island, British columbia, Canada. I live on a secluded ocean beach where the seals and whales play. When I was in grade one my class was told to go home and write our first poems for homework over the weekend.I was captured by the words that came out of me.I adored poetry right from the start. Unfortunately when I handed my poem in to the teacher something happened that scarred me with writers block for my entire life.She told me to stand up in front of the class and confess that I had stolen my poem from somewhere. She said there was no way I could have written it.She had no proof that the poem wasn't mine. Indeed I did write it.I was so embarrassed and devastated that I ran out of the class and the school crying.I was horrified.I ran home and the teacher chased me and yelled at me to come back.When I got home my mother had heard the story from the school.My mother was a weak woman and never stood up to the school.I was deemed a poem stealer and was marked for life. I received low marks in school from then on.I stopped writing before I even had a chance. The past few months have delivered a few emotional blows in regards to my personal life,and I decided to try and break through my writers block.I started writing again.Now I have my own poetry website which has only been online for a couple of months now.Pleas visit my site and let me know what you think.Maybe you will enrich me with your poetic works,and enjoy reading mine. I am a deeply metaphorical writer,and am finding my love for the stuff all over again.
