Poem About Poetry - Lost In Words

Rating: 4.2

i would rather be
lost in feelings
rather than words

for feelings
i could sort out
and translate into verses

but to be lost in words
well it can be a route
to a no man's land
where poetry should not be


I hear you loud & lucid, John....In the writers world, turbulent feelings almost always result in sterling verse...Solid Work, HERE...(YOU MUST HAVE BEEN DOWN, WHEN THIS IDEA CAME TO MIND?) LOL! FJR

As the words have to convey the feelings I agree. But it is semantic nonsense. To be lost in feelings is a state of death - nothing exists, and no words can describe death to the dead. Lovely bit of introspective (but cleverly misleading) philosophy here John!

An interesting thing to think about, which are easier to deal with... words or feelings? I'm with you, I would much rather be lost in feelings. Great poem John. Sincerely, Mary
