A Reader's Angst

Written by: Diane Locksley

 
Dark poetry, slams and vague imagery
Is there something you're trying to tell me?

     Poems with messages appeal
     Can you write to make me feel?

Share your deep thoughts and allow me to see
 
Disconnected images confuse
And when the English language is abused

     I read no more, turn away
     Seek verse with something to say

Writes with clear meanings that aren't obtuse
 
There's so much talent on Poetry Soup
And never have I found a finer group

     But no comments I'll impart
     If you're not creating art

Make me think, feel, or I'll fly from your coop
