I am a fan of short poems. I have seen so many people write things like 'this is pretty good for a short poem' as if short is a negative thing. I think it is more of a preference rather than a true critique. My favorite line in this poem is also the most poerful one 'messages dependent on implications' Wow, I wonder if anyone can see how much that says about the human psyche. We are so dependent on what we think other people are thinking.
I can understand this write completely. I have the same problem at times. That's why I like writing.. I can express better in poems than in actual coversations.. Weird huh? And then, there's always that fear of your words not coming out as you intended them too. An anjoyable read. Take Care! ~Sandra
