who look close enough to see
the hurt hidden in anger,
the fear disguised in arrogance,
the eloquence locked in silence beyond all words,
To those who love the faces in the city.
|What is a friend? How can
you find one? More important, how can you be one? This is
the often thought-about, seldom talked-about subject explored by James
Kavanaugh in this beautiful sequel to There
Are Men Too Gentle To Live Among Wolves.
In his "Lonely People Weeping" you feel the desolation of loneliness as you walk in the midst of crowds. In "The Lonely Ones Are Phoning Me Today" you feel the sadness of a call made by someone with nothing to say and, more important, no one to say it to.
The lighter side of James Kavanaugh comes through as he writes "I Want a Guru of My Own." "My Professional Helpers" and "The Pliable People" - a bittersweet tale of people everyone knows, who, in their search for friendship, have sacrificed their own identities.
And friendship, so akin to love, turns to love in "someone Might See Us." "Last Night's Love." and "Love and Breath Beyond Belief." And be sure to read "A Fleeting Vision." It is one of the most beautiful love poems ever written-one destined to endure forever.
