Emotion

Rating: 3.4

Why is it
that I can cry
seeing a tv program same as I.
Family situations, I can relate,
Only they are actors, I am real.
Hidden from others,
should I think I am hidding

from the feelings of the world.

The world is chaotic, I'm just one

Yep. I can identify with this one. I am a very emotional person but I have a problem with letting people see that side of me - almost as if it makes me less of a man! I guess it is the way our respective generations brought us up! It is that locked-up emotion that manifests in our writing. I can relate with this so easily. I must watch the same tv programmes.

The world is chaotic, I'm just one judging the show, it must be real. I'm tipsy, so I'll spot you that, but reality comes from the script, I feel. Superb........10

I think the best scripts are written by writers who have experienced so much, or writers who band together to pool ideas. That's why we can cry and be pulled into the reality of it all. Emotion is a great name for the poem and your writing is heartfelt and extremely real. 10 Karin Anderson

I think we are all inclined to view others as heroic and ourselves as prosaic. If only we could see ourselves on tv through their eyes just once. Nice theme and well developed.
