When All Say REviewed

When All Say
Poetry is too simplistic
Then write,
that which is not.

When you compose
What is too fuckin complicated
Then again straightaway
Confiscate it.

Never mind
What others have to say
They are all going to critique it
In their own imitable way

Accept it if you will
Or else smile,
But let the critique,
Not your conscience kill.

Poetry is all about emotions,
In which one is submerged
From corrosive thoughts
Errors surface in turn.

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


So kindly extracted
my tooth aches less
and mind is added
with fervour
and love
for those who continue
as above .

I'll not try to comprehend. This poem is not you. This poem is not the you I have been presented to. I must assume this is poem from another time...another you. Istan

A poet is a nightingale, who sits in darkness and sings to cheer its own solitude with sweet sounds. Percy Bysshe Shelley
