"Oh, how you splinter me...."
Looking, through your looking glass
Portraits, of your present
And images, of your past
You say you see
You say you know
You say you do
But really....
You don't!
You sprinkle your sugar
You sputter your spatter
For all of those as yourself
To whom, it doesn't even matter....
Wrapped in your paper
And wrapped in your chatter
These monuments and pyramids
Of your self, absorbing...."Splatter"
Your purposeless, and your pointless
Pitter patter....
Your lines, they are divine
Your words, they are immense
But unto me, they do all seem
Void....And teetering
Upon the pretense!
Standing in front of you now
Staring, into your eye's....
You tell me that you do
But I do, wonder why?
Peering through your window
Looking through your glass
Your visions, for tomorrow
Should your yesterdays....They pass!
~ Splattered ~

John, this almost sounds like a friendship that has been distant on one side, but not the other. . i can relate.& what a very truthful write. "i'll Never Forget" was written by the very deep pain in my heart at one time. when i didn't know as much. the end,i learned the love could never go away. im glad you found it very precious. yes, not only was the man lucky to have such a profound woman as she.but she was also blessed to have him. ~Always&Forever

Ok John...dear you are rhyming..this is now you know instead of do not know LOL..loved the above. On abyss...a journey without end say as in a bottomless hole or abyss, might be relaxing? interesting, no fear of a splat! wonderous? not black..perhaps a rainbow of prismatic colors..all light added together does translate to white light..only all pigments together become black..grin

Hi John, I've gotten so busy lately I barely have time to read them let alone write my own. Please continue praying for Michael because he's heartbroken.

John, A great poem that flows well. I like the alliteration and the sing-song that appears in some of the lines. The language in down-to-earth and the poem benefits enormously as a result. it is a good one to read aloud (always a good test, I think)

They don't offend me at all, well maybe the perfect part, because no human is perfect, if they were, we wouldn't need to follow Christ. But I love your comments, please never stop :) You are an amazing poet and very spiritual, stay that way :) Blessings, ~Michaela~

Hey to you, John! This is amazing...truly! An out-pouring of thought and emotion. I think that many might feel at some time or another, they've been 'splatterd', and it takes a strong will and courage to turn around and walk away. In return one will acquire a sense of peace and well being. It's good to write from one's heart and soul..sometimes it can fill in a void, and make one feel complete.:) I'm wishing you and yours the best, John! God bless...Mikki

Hi, this is deep, very deep, I loved it though. You flatter me in your last comment, for I am far from perfect, and I may seem precious, but I am far from both, at least that's my view. Thanks for your continuous praise, this was an amazing piece. ~Michaela~

Hi there, a very deep write. Maybe its about being hurt by someone you cared for once. This is a horrible feeling coz we cant forget yesterdays and can't invite tomorrows to guide us. Sometimes are better than not having any times at all. A great piece. Your heart shines in each write. Always, Chitra
