       havent posted in awhile, ive been going over my writing, most lack the depth I pictured in my head...and I have sutbbornly chosen not to revise them, but instead put more heart and feeling into what I write...i love what I write, and some of it inspires...but it should all inspire, thats part of writing...

    dotswords mean moredots

    the sincerity of words,
    reaching out to find,
    a thoughtful heart,
    an open mind...
    Few and far between
    or so it is said,
    the depth of one's words,
    to comprehend.
    Most words lack meaning,
    a fault of thought,
    intricate inspiration
    suddenly all for not.
    Words are not for granted,
    though many taken so,
    the complexity of writing,
    lies not in what we know.
    But we continue to write,
    lacking the ambition,
    needed to succeed...
    to think with no revision.

      "intricate inspiration/suddenly all for not."

    I can feel that way sometimes about what i write. I'll be all excited as i watch words and ideas spill out of my mind and onto the paper. But then, upon second glance, those same words and ideas suddenly seem jumbled and confusing. I swear i've even gone back and read someting and completly wonder who it was or where in the heck i could have been mentally to have created that. That's what those two lines made me think of.
    "the sincerity of words,/reaching out to find,/a thoughtful heart,/an open mind..." These first lines reminded me of why i even started sharing the things i write (either on ES or at any open mic spots i can find here in Atlanta). Just reaching out to connect with someone. I express similar sintement in a piece I wrote called "Craw into a quiet corner".
    the complexity of writing,/lies not in what we know." This is probably the most awsome line i've read on this site and the truest and most needed to be said. Truth be told i'm thinking about making it my quote on my account page but if i do i'm gonna give credit where it is due. But so many so called "creative geniuses" on this sight and all over feel like personal expression can be governed by some set of rules. How can anyone tell me how to express what's going on in my mind or in my world?!?!? You cant. You can read it and feel free to love me, hate me, or relate to me at will. But if you don't like the sound of my "voice" than don't listen. I think that there are only a true "elite" few that can still respect and live vibrantly under the creative freedom of self expression. i think you are one of those proud few.

    The complexity of writing lies not in what we know...

      I don't know why you say "most words lack meaning", all words have meaning, maybe I'm just seeing that out of context. In the 17th line, I would change the "we" to "I", since you're really talking about yourself. It's weird, I know someone who looks exactly like your photo. "Or so it is said" and "all for not" are lines I hear an awful lot. The poem and the description are really the same thing, just under a different format- which doesn't leave much for the reader to figure out.
