Tell Me

Can the simple words from my heart Be fathomed by the intricate minds from which you think? Or are they the mere smell of sewage? Floating through the air with a pungent stink People read my daily life messages With no friendly feedback to be found Causing my fragile mind to sputter Leaving me a trampled heart,laying on the ground Will it cause you shame? To leave a few simple words resting in one place? Admitting they may have caused you sadness Or left a tear of joy to roll down your face? Perhaps they just didn't reach you? Or are to simple for your complex minds Once again I'm sorry to have let you down For they were the only words,my loving heart could find Yes,my words may be frivolous Yet you read them that you must admit So please leave a comment when your done reading them Letting me know truthfuly,if they are even worth a sh#t

    Well being new to P.S and find myself working through some of your poems. So let me TELL YOU.......that your poems are definitely not SH#T!......I l really like the line 'for they were the only words my loving heart could find' i think that's what poetry is all about - it's what you feel.......SHAZ x

    ahhhh to start and end with sh#t really gets the message home, my thoughts on this [which I have to keep reminding myself are this] we can never know what is keeping anther person from us, why they won't let us in, how they hurt...remembering it is not even most of the time about us will help us Dan. [Your actions and words are about you, theirs actions and words or lack of them is about them] Light & Love

    D - I always enjoy reading your work. I'm currently don't get much cyber time, but always stop by your stuff when I get the chance.

    Of COURSE you should enter this in the contest, dan. I just read your comment to Frank's blog. Funny guy, isn't he? With the midget porn he seems to enjoy! I think this is a very emotive poem. I know many poets at Soup feel this way from time to time. The only solution is to do lotsa commenting and it sure can get tiring, but in the end, you meet so many wonderful poets and read some great poetry in the process. Hey, your poems are worthwhile. I rarely get anything for VD and NEVER a poem!! HOpe your wife enjoys yours.

    Well don't worry,some day I'll find you a poem.But I'm getting a little behind on that promise. :o) Thank you for always stopping by.

    I hope you did enter it in the contest, your words are sad but something inside must have prompted them. Hope you know you are treasured and your poems enjoyed Dan, you are special to me! Hugs, Lizzie X How does a 7 sound?

    You have shown your vulnerability in writing this, you are expressing what others might also feel, the need to be accepted and loved, I often feel this way myself, thank you for sharing Dan, I enjoyed your poem, sending you my chocolate kisses hope they don't melt on the way, xxxvie

  1. Date: 2/17/2012 1:17:00 PM

    woooow. I've felt like this before, it'll pass man, it's hard to reach out and touch someone, when you are online and respect their work, what more words do we need. Yeah, I'm a goof sometimes with people, but your words are simple and profound ALWAYS Dan, so much cheer, and hopes of the bright light to warm you, Much love brother, take good care, Cindy
