Very good poem you have here! I found it dark and funny. Is that okay? I am especially amused by the last part, yeah wth, we should write for ourselves and not for anyone else. I strongly believe in that. And what a poem you've made just to capture the vehemence of that sentiment! Excellent. Thanks for the read, I enjoyed it, really! Looking forward to more great pieces.
This is a curously interesting piece you have. I was caught by the title, and I'm glad I checked it out. I can understand where you are coming from. Some people are just too neandrathalic to apreciate the beauty of a good poem. I'm glad your title caught my eye, this was definately worth reading. good job with this.
This is a very good poem. I was drawn in here from the title as it made me very curious to see what this was about. Now that I have read it, I am happy I stopped in. This is very well written and expressed and you have touched on the love of poetry and life as a metaphor very well here. I enjoy reading poems and trying to crawl inside someone else's mind to figure out their perspective. I find it fascinating. Some people just dont get it I guess and it is indeed a shame, as I feel they are really missing out on a beautiful thing. Very good poem! Take care.
Cool write, Chrystine. Metaphor bids we notice in the first place that life is valuable, enough to write about a simple pleasure, in fact. But this becomes a conundrum in effect, to notice makes us write and in turn notice more beauty.
OK, sounds like we've got the upward spiral going now, didn't think it about that did you? Nice work, thanks for sharing.
this was very nice and not at all what I expected. more people should appreciate poetry and life for that matter. there are alot of poets out there though. it's daunting to think of just how many there might be. but that doesn't keep me from writing my own version of poetry! nice work here Chrystine.
The title drew me in because that's how I feel at the moment- what the hell. LOL But I see what you're saying here.. about Poetry and Life.. and how some do not fully appreciate either. Life, as in poetry, is filled with "overlooked beauty".
