Simple Words For Simple People

If I had a pretentious brain which acts faster than my heart Maybe then,I would abhore this soul which spreads freely through each verse Maybe then I would impress you with my intellectual grammar and sophisticated words I would scrutunize each and every coma dot and exclamationmark believing I know best But I would never let that happen I'd rather stay at bay Writing firstly with my mind and not my heart leads only to an asylium within the being of myself Poetry is my voice,my shadow The sacred shrine of great escape Each stored emotion processed within a yesterday Poetry is the inner of my existence breathing softly,bleeding deeply exploding in death,love passion and romance In every verse a whisper a thought that I would scribe of a silent cry expressed Maybe in a tomorrow you might pass by me Tread your footstep on my ink and spit saliva in my face But maybe in a today a broken -hearted fool stops by to find comfort in my world Maybe a prisoner,a tramp an insane soul or outcast would pick these scattered scribbles and gather them as whole Maybe through each criss-crossed puzzle finds a narrow passage which leads his faith to home Maybe a little child whose blissful giggles depends on little words would turn the dusty pages of silly rhymes I penned Rhymes which know the moons stars,faries,and the magic land Rhymes which know each fantasy and how to be a friend And maybe He would smile Maybe He would laugh Maybe He would dream Maybe He would grow up to write the most eloquent sonnet there has ever been Or maybe He would grow up to write simple words just like me about daises or dandelions and expressions to be free

    Oh mercy me Charma - This took my breath away...I usually try to pick out a favorite line of verse but I can't here...every line is a gem. If I were forced to, it might this part: 'But maybe in a today a broken -hearted fool stops by to find comfort in my world Maybe a prisoner,a tramp an insane soul or outcast would pick these scattered scribbles and gather them as whole' WOW...

    There is no benefit of a poem not understood simply because it was meant to impress; this is wonderful Charma. "breathing softly, bleeding deeply exploding in death, love passion and romance" ...I love it. I have asked a couple others and I ask you also; please give my daughter, ILyeza Thomas a minute and read her two newest pieces Charma.

    Simplicity is my key to everyone not just the elites who use words that require explaining. I wouldn't use them in contracts. And some of my poetry I do consider contracts.

    Simple words, what? The most powerful things are simple; for instance, the good lord didnt make it difficult for us to find him! Faves! ... Thanks for the high appraisal on Drake's radio show. We missed your presence, Charmaine!

    Holy simplicity!! You must add a footnote: "inspired by true events"!! : D Love it!! You're an amazing poet, Charmaine. (I know, I know ... it's not the first time that I tell you this) A FAV!

    Magnificently written with a voice that I echo Charmaine....there are too many parameters on how to write ....if it feels right it's written with the purest of hearts ...well done you again...x

    My first thought, dear friend...is how similar your hope is to an old friend of mine, Walt Whitman....yet to be fully understood in the USA...jimbo
