Rationalising the world through words


Rationalising the world,
through words,
hiding emotions,
in metaphors and ryhme,
as a poet this is my crime.
living in a world of words,
surfing on the waves of inspiration,
feeling at times like a clogged up atery,
with thoughts and feelings and dreams,
caughts in long winding streams of poetic purpose.
seeing life through a bottle,
a utopic lonely life,
like that of a salt tasting fisherman,
waiting in knowing assureness,
that the right catch will take the bait.
like a child that turns to comics,
to make sense of the world,
i pick up a pen,
and with strokes and swirls,
decorate the lonely page.

    Vincent, i enjoy reading your poetry.
    At this point though, i have to tell you
    that i do not have any technical skills
    in the composition of poetry. Nor the
    vocabulary to give your poem the
    full critical appraisal some of the
    poetry forum snobs crave.
    All i really want to say is that i enjoyed
    this, so easy to read it flows beautifully.
    I thought it was a great poem.
    Thank you for sharing, sorry i couldnt be more critical!
    Kindest Regards Slim. x. (Report) Reply

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?

But mark the fate of faces;
