I am lost
I am lost floating, surrounded by a cold white mist. blind and searching for my missing soul. searching for the one who has stolen it. were you the one who stopped, fleetingly? were you the one who tenderly kissed my lips when once they were red with love, then left me lost in the pale moonlight? or was it me? have I let this translucent magic slip away in my shadowed desperation to have one second more? to feel one second more? what I cannot find, cannot hold, cannot see to set me free to feel again. where have I gone? did I ever exist? will I ever be again? or am I merely a soulless pale wanderer floating through this endless mist lost on a soundless, colorless journey to nowhere? forever lonely. forever lost. forever here to stay.

My dear Dr. Saltzman,
My dear Dr. Saltzman, Thank you, Nolan, for your important thoughts and comments from such a very tough taskmaster on the written word. I've been honored to be the Editor of several of your already published books; now I'm waiting to read your newest Novel, which you've decided not to work with an Editor.. (Big Mistake! :) ) You're a great writer in many categories. I especially love your Poetry and wish you''d post more here on Medium. Please!

After 22 years of knowing you, and being a professional colleague as well, I always look back and think how much we've learned from each other, specifically in the area of psychotherapy.
I think we should start all over again!
Your dearest friend,
from Isolation to Insanity
a year of COVID lockdowns no one talks about — the beginning… it was an ordinary day, march 13th, 2020. i’m in new york city. without warning, we learn it was the epicenter of the coronavirus. novel. lethal. dangerously transmittable. but secretly, the first case had been identified two months earlier. in january. no one told us we were in the midst of a pandemic. what i…

a free association on the insurrection — there’s a scream deep inside me it’s silent sitting somewhere deep since the evening of january sixth, the year twenty twenty one an insurrection, a rebellion, a piercing riot, razor-sharp, tearing through me like a knife I cannot erase the images from my mind… of terrorists desecrating the center of our…
geez, favorite writers. so, so sorry!
I’ve been unforgivingly remiss… — I know I haven’t been reading your work nor clapping and replying as I usually do. I do apologize. I’ve been dealing with some crazy medical issues that are, right now, very painful. It’s been pulling me apart in ways making it difficult to concentrate… brings about brain fog, snark…
ballet of love
his arm encircled her waist, slowly turning her to face him as Ravel’s Bolero began to play. they stood gazing at each other as they swayed together rhythmically, their moist bodies fitting perfectly as one, skin to skin, luminous in the soft glow of candles casting sensual shadows on bare…
