Misunderstanding (Cinquain #5) . - Poem by Carl Roussell

You felt,
you thought I knew,
but I didn't. Did I
come across as cold, unfeeling?
Seems so.

    Misunderstanding gives anger and this provokes thought. This poem is very brilliant and amazingly penned. We hope to have always good understanding and good life with love and peace...10 (Report)Reply

    Thanks for taking the time to read this poem. Too often is this the case where one cannot see the other person and this leaves a bad taste in the relationship.
