    Mood: Frustrated
      
    I think it is time for me to leave.

    It's difficult for me to place my finger on just one reason why I feel the need to go, but I'll flatter myself by trying to offer some explanation. I no longer enjoy myself while perusing this site. I try to look at "recent posts," but they're all crap. I read them, and my mind interprets the words as, "blahblahblah." That's not fun. I first came in order to try to get myself writing again, and instead, now there's even less point in writing than ever before. I am beginning to realize the futility of trying to create something that tries to make someone feel a certain way. I'm sick and tired of having people tell me the crap I've written is really good and the stuff I've worked the hardest on is crap. And what does it say when there are pieces that eleven people have commented on and no one has gleaned the one sentence explanation from, yet when I show the same piece to someone who doesn't know squat about poetry, they're able to see it immediately?

    And then there's the fact that I simply care too much. I try not too, but I care too much about having a good "comment ratio." I care too much when I try to comment on what someone else has written, even though I know they couldn't care less what I have to say. So for that reason I really really need to quit checking this site so often.

    If I'm stalking you, I'll still comment on stuff you submit, but none of you submit stuff often anyhow, so it shouldn't be too hard. And for the very few of you who have actually had something worthwhile to say, thank you, really. Thanks to you, I'm waiting a bit before deleting everything, as I want to take note of comments that have been made.

    saccharine alert!




    it's been a while... and one can indeed get caught amid the swirl of the seasons-

    a bit belated but;

    merry christmas, happy chanukah, joyful kwanza and winter solstice to all!

    wow, 68 days... its one hell of a flashback. but ill tell you, i've learned at least one thing this 2008: ive gotten cleverer! ...or more annoying... meh.. but its all thanks to you guys. and i know i havent been as active as much as i would love to, yet somehow reality just grabs you by the wrist and you lose bearing, inevitable.

    but i come back. true passion's compass would always point north, and there be polar bears about this place (or are they south?)

    i always come back...

    either to bug you or gloat how cleverer ive gotten!

    you're the reason i stride atop humpback whales and return here

    this reality where the best and sometimes embarrassingly worse of ourselves exists.



    to the people i cherish most, i truly wish you all a happy new year

    and sincerely hope to god that it wont be as crazy as this one!

    peace!

    Wow! Well let’s begin at the beginning: Thanks for the read, and for the suggestions. I originally had “I’ve MET the MUSE whose WHISpers YOU have SOUGHT.” I changed it so it would NOT flow so smoothly, so rhythmically perfect. I used to do the opposite, and have come to feel that kind of emphasis can end up as a sort of superficial-sounding singy-songiness. And, you're right – the poem is not about the painting, but is inspired by it. I guess I would say the painting is a jumping-off point only.
    You're right too that most of the posts ARE crap. 80% of them always were. Your just getting better – good enough to recognize their true value. The question I feel compelled to ask is WHY did you want to write – to make “others feel a certain way”? Bad reason, I think. As for writers not being able to glean the point of a poem – that’s a legitimate criticism; something I and the 10 others need to work on. But it’s going to be a bit harder, because I no longer have your writing to look at.
    As for not submitting stuff often: Guilty as charged, and proud of it. My poems take a long time to craft, while the other 80% take a short time to crap. I especially refer to the geniuses whose comments are along the line of, “Just something that came to me during AP Algebra class today.” Thank God THEY didn’t do the Mona Lisa! They write like George Bush governs.
    In any case, you should write not to make us feel a certain way, but to express what you neeeeeeeed to express. “We pour upon the world some voice within.” If I don’t always understand your inner voice, that’s as much my problem as yours; perhaps more mine.
    If you decide to maintain your writing embargo, at least bother to visit my page every couple of weeks. Your comments are most appreciated, and I should have my next one finished within a week or two.

    Hey,

    I read your comment on freds recent post. I was looking forward to reading some of your work. It's too bad you've unposted. If you change your mind please let me know. A Curious reader,

    Marco
