Random thoughts on how I crave a dramatic and poetic life, and feel unsatisfied with happiness. Funny how that works.

Our poetic lives

We are far too poetic
To let simple happiness get in the way of
Our artistry

  yes yes is said that we poets thrive on pain...maybe that is true in some sense...because it seems much harder to write happy...

we can write passion yes...but when we are complacent...just cruising along status quo...the poems seem to become dormant...and stay dormant till some drama happens to kick us into gear.

  You touch on something here that's interesting, but I think it's more than that. This little nugget of a poem holds so much truth, but it's also unexplored, too, I feel. I don't think that happiness gets in the way of poetry, I think poetry is about the juxtaposition between happiness and sadness, and all those "contradicting" emotions coming together like a fault, creating tension and making a poem. Or an earthquake. A breakdown. I fucking hate drama, and I don't even think it's ABOUT the drama, but how we handle it. Some people are completely unphased by big things, like life-changing events, but the small things force them to write a poem. I don't know if I've ever written a poem about happiness, not that I can recall, but I've never written one out of anger either. I don't really think it's even about once emotion, like emotion, or sadness, but the exploration of many together. I don't know, now I'm rambling. I don't know if happiness gets in the way of poetry. In fact I think one of my biggest highs is finishing a poem. Few things make me happier than that.

  Drama trumps happiness at some point.

Some people need to create drama if enough is not provided in their lives. It's all part of a well balanced diet, I suppose. What I really pity are those who know not poetry or artistry at all, treating it like some foreign esoteric.
