...............My Enigma Poem by James McLain

...............My Enigma

Rating: 3.2


You ask me what am I thinking when I look inside you
and you see me looking through you, as if I thought.

And how in the beginning, it was a point of issue in
that you thought, you had received not my undivided
attention and as I tried to, and I did and you understand.
So briefly, in explanation as no enigma can, with you do I.

Know too that no two enigmas are alike and as such
they are going to understand this and it helps you to
grow together, while spiraling apart to meet the end.

For the contrivance of complication is simple deceit, and
deceit, contrived is a simple matter for my generals and we
were not at war, as were so many, who thought they knew.
That two enigmas laid end to end, should never taste defeat.

I really dont understand this one at all, but I like the name and trying to figure out what the author is talking about and how I should apply it to myself so I get something out of it and learn from this author.

That two enigmas laid end to end, should never taste defeat. Your poetry appears to be quite philosophical. And at times, it's difficult to grasp. But when the meaning becomes clear, the light goes on, and the face smiles. Thanks for the adventure. I invite you to read and comment/rate some of my poetry. Thx again.
