    With the 2nd highest amount of points here, I fail to see why he is not on the most popular poet or member list on the home page.

    Kelly gives back to this community. He answers every comment made, reads more poems and comments on them and rates and encourages all poets, young and old

  • Michael Joseph (4/21/2016 8:01:00 PM)

    No other poet on this site has ever written so well but been so humble

  • Michael Joseph (4/21/2016 8:00:00 PM)

    Kelly's voice ranges from the profoundly deep to the hilariously silly

  • Michael Joseph (4/21/2016 7:59:00 PM)

    I can't stop reading him

  • Yan Feng Yan Feng (2/14/2016 8:09:00 PM)

    one of the best profound writer you are kelly, love your writing too much

  • Mike Smith Mike Smith (2/2/2016 8:13:00 AM)

    I've been fortunate enough to know Kelly personally for several years now, but only recently started exploring his poetry. It does me good to know how many of you out there truly appreciate his fascinating perspectives and insights, as well as silliness and light heart.
    Never stop writing these Kelly. As long as you have plenty yet to say, you'll have plenty more waiting (eagerly) to listen.
    Your friend,

Best Poem of Kelly Kurt

I Can Promise Only This

You can ask anything of me and I will attempt
You can tell me to smile, when grief is my shadow
You can stick me with pins and require my stillness
Take all my possessions and demand more
You can mandate the improbable and I will comply
But I can promise only this
To do my best

Read the full of I Can Promise Only This


It insists a knowledge
Incontrovertible facts
An imperative exists
There is little other likelihood
Neither nor both
Not a simultaneous possibility

Belief is proffered
