Emotions


Blog Posted:1/10/2018 4:00:00 PM

Guys/Ladies--It is connected with art for sure---but a question, do you ever get very emotional reading a poem including your own, I know I certainly do. Personally, I could never read/recite a eulogy at a funeral because I get too wrapped up in all of it. What about movies, are there some that just envelope you no matter how many times you have seen them. But, after all, isn't that what makes us poets? Just askin'

I read poetry to be moved. I absolutely love anything that moves me to tears ... poetry, a beautiful song or piece of music, a movie ... even some tv shoes, although I very rarely watch movies or tv anymore. To move someone emotionally with your words is an amazing gift. I do believe that the artistic brains feel deeper and on a different level. Completely agree with Greg that ... some people just don't get it. Connecting with others who are not on the same emotional level becomes very difficult.

I must say, movies where animals and children die are unbearable for me. Anytime an 'innocent' dies, it is especially heartbreaking and the tears flow freely. Animals and children trust and depend on others to protect and nourish them. I think it all started with 'Ole Yellar. Never quite got over that movie.

Janece!! The first time I remember seeing my Mom cry was reading the end of Ole Yellar---funny you should mention that---that is definitely a Me Too movie (as far as crying goes)

Yes, I do get emotional viewing movies, some poems, some novels but also get filled with laughter at funny poems, funny parts of movies and reading a humorous book and when sometimes is not right I get very angry that the character would do such a thing..Sara

Keith, sliding off subject but sort of parallel, those like Maureen O'Hara, Barbara Stanwyck and Katherine Hepburn and many more were my idols as far as strong women (including my Mom and my wife and my sister and others) To me that is sexy and attractive - a take no crap, give no crap "as long as you respect me" woman. Anyhow, too much said on a obtusely related subject.

I find very few in today's performance art world that come close to ladies like that.

Yes, Craig. There are some poems I write so I can turn the hurt loose; bring it to the surface after being buried deep within me for too many years. As I relive the events, I cannot help but tremble and feel faint. It hurts anew each time I read these poems but, I'm hoping at some point, it will make me a better person.

Janece, Your poem is a perfect example of tears while writing and tears while reading, if not someone doesn't have a heart or it is very hardened. We need to let those emotions go to free/loosen ourselves and also let others know they are not alone, because sometimes we feel we're the only ones---when it is very far from the truth. Tight Hugs!

Yes, Craig: If I come across one of my poems and read it again on my childhood ( not published here) I feel the sadness well up. There is one movie that gets me at the end every time. “Random Harvest” with Ronald Coleman and Greer Garson. I won’t tell the ending. You really must see it. SuZ

I loved her in Spencer's Mountain (the catalyst for The Waltons TV series) but could never figure out what a hot sultry babe like her was doing living on a mountain with a drunk pig-headed Henry Fonda and nine kids. Made me want to head for the hills and start ploughing my own seed!

Always had a thing for Maureen O'Hara. What is it about redheads?
Date: 1/11/2018 2:08:00 PM
(continued) ... and I'm not sure that's always a GOOD thing, but we're stuck with it nonetheless. I personally think that makes us better lovers, too, so we do reap some benefits OTHER than poetry, music, art, etc.. Sometimes you say to others, "Man - look at that moon - incredible!" and they reply halfheartedly, and you know they're just not "getting" it, and sadly, never will. But we DO pay a price, eh? The holes in our hearts that never heal ... and sometimes, demons that won't let go.

Yup, it is certainly a gift and can be an emotional curse as well---comes with the territory I guess?!
Date: 1/11/2018 2:08:00 PM
Yep, writing about my dad gets to me, (still much pain there - A Bridge Unseen, Traveling Light), about my kids, pets, lost love, family, struggles with substance abuse, (you get the idea) ... as far as movies, not many bring me to tears, but they creep up on me ... The Notebook got to me, (the moment when she was dancing with her husband and her Alzheimer's kicked in), Meet Joe Black, It's A Wonderful Life, Phenomenon, others, though brief moments. Music gets to me more, and some songs I'll be singing, reach certain phrases, and boom - Niagara Falls! And I think, wow, where did THAT come from? We are who we are, and I think most of us "artistic" types feel things a bit deeper, (continued)

Who am I kidding? I'm as sentimental as the next guy. Speaking of tearjerker movies, I just lost it in Wall Street when the fascist big brother government took down the two dynamic wealth creating heroes. That age-old story when ambitious stockbroker boy meets uber-rich corporate raider and sparks begin to fly. I guess I knew it would never last. Folks, it doesn't get any more emotional than that.

Dammit, the cat's out of the bag. Now everyone will connect the dots. Keith doesn't exist - he is a fake, an imposter, a keyboard figment of my (Tommy) imagination. An alter-ego better version of myself who pulls me into line when I go too far. He's my Rubiks Cube - colourful and complex yet simple and twisted!

I am trying to help you Keith. Like my example below, but imagine yourself in the passenger seat, with your hand on the door handle. In this modified example, the driver sitting next to you is fear. The driver in the other truck is freedom. So, give us an example of a movie in which the tears flowed down. I do recommend “The Bridges of Madison County” if you have not seen it.

How about the movie; "The Bridges of Madison County"? One of the best scenes, at the intersection, when the husband asks what the man in front of him is waiting for.
Date: 1/10/2018 9:19:00 PM
Yes...especially if what I am reading reminds me of a person or place or time...the same goes for writing poetry or a song...in my opinion...then there's we are all crazy and we are the ones who can express it

Yes, I do get emotional with poems, both my own and others. With my own, it is usually as I am writing it. Once the poem is done, or a certain amount of time after it is done, the emotions subside. About movies, ‘Philadelphia’ is an example. I still remember being in the theater crying at certain parts. Documentaries too, I still recall one concerning Agent Orange the continued effects it is having on our military personnel and the Vietnamese. These examples, and many others, remind me of how blessed I have been and helps drive me to be a better, more compassionate person.

Pretty much the same for me Rob about the my poems aspect---movies for me, well, when it comes to pets dying I'm a mush and with something that touches closely with a traumatic family or friend event---hey, if anything can make you feel, it has done its job and perhaps more as a vehicle to release pent up whatever, can't be all bad nor anything to scoff at
Date: 1/10/2018 4:13:00 PM
Absolutely. Reading Becca's I am poetry, Leanne Lovejoy Burton's Brave New World, Poet Destroyer's Monster etal how can one not feel the words deeply? Whether tears or laughter or anger or sadness, poetry, well-written, should touch the heart. Otherwise it's just words on paper

Oration is a gift...Hitler had it. Very rarely do I get emotional over a poem. I don't need to tear up to feel and understand a charged write. Some people well up watching Judge Judy for Pete's sake!

Very true Thwomas---I'm sure you get emotional with many of your own writes in the midst of composition--I can tell especially by the way you have recited some writes. You are among the VERY few here on the soup or anywhere that can actually add to a poem by reciting it---most detract.
