    The Find-Me-Out scenario. It is hardest to see who we are, so we depend on the reflection of others & strangers. Be assured you are who you think you are if you think you are extremely natural & talented in your writing. Not a compliment but a perception in my sense of reality. Feel the undercurrent of your poem. It is the perfect formation of ideas & words.

      Jennifer, what would you do if you received this message? “Flee, all is discovered!” Both Mark Twain and Arthur Conan Doyle supposedly sent similar telegrams to a dozen prominent men, all of whom packed up and left town immediately. I have to admit that thought flitted through my mind when I was writing this! :)

      I’m so glad you enjoyed it. It comes from my tragic and well-known run-ins with the paparazzi — not!

        “Flee, all is discovered.” I don’t usually keep dangerous things to myself. Secrets that bring on the need to escape. I am not hesitant as someone over the age of a teenager. I wouldn’t flee. I would stand up to the problem & when once done, I’d run away to my words to get away from the bad guys & the blackmailers. People are know to twist the truth to fit their own needs.

        Sorry such a late response. I hope this answers is sufficient. A rather good query. Thought-provoking. I do love thought provoking questions.

        ps. giving furthur thought, Twain & Doyle would have the effect of putting the fear of paranoia inside your mind.

      Yes, Larry, my closet is jam-packed with skeletons! The paparazzi dog my steps wherever I go. Thank goodness that’s not true. It doesn’t sound like fun.

        That should have said: Scandalessness -- damn the auto-correct. I agree are paparazzo are a plague who hide behind freedom of the press for no good purpose.

          Larry, there’s a Millennial Motto -- Damn the auto-correct -- Full speed ahead! Can you imagine someone from the 50s reading all of this and trying to understand what it means? Isn’t life Fascinating?

            Melody,

            It most assuredly is -- Fascination -- almost like a song lyric!
