Behind My Words

                                         I'm picking paper from the floor...
                                             Missing pages out my door...
                                             I never really told the truth...
                                      We were two in one that made a group...
                                          It was easier to mold my words...
                                   In a time where honesty was never heard...
                          
                                           I'm picking paper from the floor...
                                            Lost in pages I could not ignore...
                                              I seldom ever told the truth..
                                          You had me falling through a hoop...
                                           You never looked behind my lines... 
                                          So we melted in two seperate sky's...

    A special write in so many ways Michael---Hey, how 'bout "Big Blue"--did us proud last week, no? Now the Skins--can't lose focus, already lost 2 NFC east games we should have won!!

    Its so easy to neglect the things that can give us the most - I respect your metaphor ' you never looked behind my lines...', there is alot of gravity to that expression - J.A.B. %

    Wisely penned Michael! Words mean nothing if the meaning behind them goes unnoticed. Nice!

    Again a very original way to say what you did. Your poems intrigue me.

    Hello, Michael I'm intrigued with your 1st and 7th line,, it gives your poem a venture of the past, that should have been. Love this poem, and about that game... I've been in the hospital with my mother.. she is okay now!! I guess :-( :-( but, thank you for the reminder of the game.. LOL..glad i missed it... I knew you guys were gonna kick our football butt's.... oh! well maybe next year.. xox~pd

    I enjoyed reading this today...a nicely realized piece with quite a bit of meaning...(if it were my poem, I think I would add the word "and" at the beginning of the penultimate line and delete the last line altogether....)....but it is your poem, and it is, of course, yours to finish as you see fit! Good work.
