Sad Poem About Spring

Sad Poem About Spring

For him, there was no one who ever cared
So sad poem about Spring he had prepared
About long ago when a friend he loved died
And seems like forever he cried and cried.

After a long time of sadness he realized
Through eternity he was being criticized
For poems about spring with no meaning
Off wall and into space they went careening.

Some say he had a horrendous scatter brain
Because all of his poems drove you insane
By and with the way they all were arranged
Appearing as if he was mentally deranged.

But really unbeknownst to both me and you
Was the fact that a picture his poem drew
Of a prospering poet who had money galore
Who everyone loved and always did adore.

Which poet would you really rather want to be?
One being governed by poetic rules constantly
Or another writing poems free as a bright bird
Loving his spring poems each and every word.

James Thomas Horn, Retired Veteran

Need you to comment on this poem and give 
it a seven (7) so I can enter it into a contest.

This is a really sad sad piece. I'm sorry My first cvomment didnt take. Maybe I forgot to click post before i closed out the window a few moments ago i wrote a reply to post on this one because of how deep it touched me. Most of my closest friends and family always seem to die in mid winter or in spring. . I'd give it a higher number than 7 if I could. But this is definitely a 7 on my scale

Njeri, Every time I look into your poetic eyes I can imagine you writing a poem. So now you write a poem about which poet you would rather be. Jim Horn

That's going to be a 7 for me! From a free bright bird who hates to be governed, keep on writing those loving spring poems, I will be waiting for another. :o)

I have been known to break a rule or two...I started to write poetry for balance, so there were no rules that mattered. The contests here are a diversion with some focus, egads, and some rules. But, if poetry is about sharing who you are, then poetry is an expression of you and there is no one youer than you...screw the rules!

Ed, A man of my feelings. This was really just an experiment sort of kind of to see how many responses I could get. You, you, you, you, you write from your hear and true feelings. There is no camouflage or two-facedness or being phony. You is you and me is me and so be it with fun thrown in between writing poetry. Ain't it great? Jim Horn

This poem kinda fits my me and my inspiration because death can symbolize my hurt inside me as well as the death of my late fience
