My Heart Throbs

Time is an unique gift of nature
to all each one
no two are exception .

I know you all know
what Shakespeare said about time
If I quote it
someone will say cliche.

I restrain so...

In the midst of company
I am alone
so lonely.

Suffering the scolds
and colds
of being.

Each one has to
So here I am before a NEO world
so much involved
in the Primal Poetry Class

I observe so many poets
are also twiddling
their poems
now no one reads.

So I shall wait to modify my stance
if I may
have a chance....

No, my mind still wants to dance
a heavenly Romance
may I still be blessed
with a performance...

always get comments and critique, you are always read. I can sympathize with the alone feeling. There are many times that I am surrounded by people, yet feel alone. When that happens, I try to think about how it feels to be someone else. How does it feel to be my wife? How about my mother in the nursing home or my friend bedridden and unable to get out anymore? It occurs to me, that maybe I'm not so bad off after all. Some of us crave recognition, some of us accolades, some of us just need some peace and quiet; freedom from worry about what others think of us. I always read you, just sometimes have no time to respond. ~Geezer.

it takes a while for me personally to comment on poems properly. that means reading it several times and spending several minutes to compose.. We don't need thumbs up likes or dislikes in poetry like the emoji poetry sites. So I comment only on poems that I have something to say or just move on.

Most important with your works, I can sense which are those you have lived with a while and can see through their disjointedness, in which time and revisions show, and others which seem off the top of your head. Those I don't bother with. When I feel its a well crafted work, or one which has moments of clarity, I have been a frequent commentator. I would expect the same from others.

I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing
than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance

for your frankness and kindness
I value your comments most
