To those who were wondering where I had gone
Where have I been? LOST!!!
To begin, I was kind of suffering from a little bit of heartbreak.
I was having a hard time dealing with the loss of some of the poets that I had come to know so well.
Some of them have passed on, some stopped commenting, some of them just stopped writing.
I found that once you interact with people everyday in your life, and then one day they are gone! It kind of rips a little piece of your heart out.
Just like losing a loved one. So I said "wait a minute here, I'm losing enough family members in my life already, I don't think my heart can take all this pain?" So I started to slowly slip away.
Then, I had a medication change, and that threw my mind for another loop!
I used to wake up and think of something to write, and within minutes I would be writing.
After the med change the words just vanished? I started poems, but never finished them. Wrote some that sounded like something I had already written, and found myself in a daze with nothing but time wasted.
Another problem I had was the secret identities of some of the poets. Some people having two, or three different names on the site! I began to feel afraid to open up, and share my inner thoughts! I don't know why? It frightened me I guess?
So, I started making music. The funny thing was though, it was electronic dance music? I don't know why? The people on the site liked it? But, that was about it.
So I asked myself, "what can I do now"? And I've come to the conclusion, that what I was doing on this site was this!
I was reading peoples poems and feeling their pain. It gave me a sense of longing to help them. Help them find their way in this messed up world. Help them find solutions to their problems, and let them know that their is someone out there who is hearing their heartfelt cries, and I can feel them through their poetry.
Yes, I said messed up world... That is because I see the world differently. I see the world as if it is getting the wool pulled over its eyes, so to speak. But, I will still strive on, and help as many people as I can!
To see the sun through the clouds,
the lonely flower hidden away.
To see the blue skies of tomorrow,
that will bring them a bright new day!
With a smile upon my face,
and a love filled heart.
I will try to wipe away your sorrows,
to give you a fresh new start.
