just great...

just about great

poets must compose
so that many continue to search
the heart of the creator at that moment
I step into the soul of my subject
to imagine how I'd feel
had I been the one in that situation
none-the less,
each one must have one’s own fibre
to brave the knife
the sword,
the curse
the slicing tongue
how can I ever be all in one
so my feelings are the outcome
of one’s peculiar situation
as at that moment

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


This has a surrealist leaning and is rather fascinating
with its cursive run down the page, tumbling words out
like the splashes from a romping stream through the rocks.
It can be read with so many different meanings.


"The image of yourself which you see in a mirror Is dead,
but the reflection of the moon on water, lives." Kenzan.


Literature or art produced in this style.

so many times
you have encouraged me
and ma'am too

so now I think
one day
I will also become like a poet like both of you
god willing Neopoets continue to read me
and help support a weakling
whose poetic sense
is just an imaginary inkling

I am still learning to be a poet and I will still be learning until the day I die but thank you for the lovely compliment
