At least twice daily people notice my meloncholic temperament and I am hit with an unwanted but expected question...
Do they have hours to devote to listening?
Do they own an acre of trees for the amount of tissues I will go through with my explanation?
I think they are better off receiving the easiest of all answers...
And walking away with just a nod, not noticing the tear that trickles down my cheek.
| i've missed reading your poetry, so i thought that i would check out some of the ones that i haven't read yet. this one is very straightforward. it is right to the point and explains a whole world of emotion in only a few words; without overwhelming the reader with too many words. you can feel the sadness in these brief words that you have written down. you have a good way of expressing your emotions without being too overwhelming. i liked it, but i hope you feel better soon. keep your chin up. and take care.||| Posted on 2007-02-18 00:00:00 | by maquiladora | [ Reply to This ] || I liked the brevity of this piece.|
No more was said than needed, and the emotion of this could still be felt.
Feel better my friend,

*hands you a tissue*
you've successfully expressed everything without expressing anything.
i love it.
you do have one miss, though...
'meloncholic' should be 'melancholic'.
there's only one 'o'.
other than that, i'd say you have a dandy piece here... ooh- perhaps write a poem for each facet of 'what's wrong'?
sorry, i'm real big on continuing pieces lately...
but i really enjoyed this...
i'm still thinking about the trees...
