A poem is

thoughts jumbled
emotions array
feelings twisted
so much to say.

A wonderful little ditty sometimes surreal maybe even witty,some might say its just a little ode,heaven forbid or is it forbode.Now it doesnt always rhyme,or need too make much sense,cause its the sentiment that matters and makes the difference.Poems are a way to express how you feel,sometimes the laughter,sorrow or pain,any outlet big or small,can be said in a poem long short,or a couple of lines,and thats all.

a poem is the gentle release of the pain
calmly revealing pent up stress
a poem is so silly
excuse me,i do regress

yes, a poem is the prose of gentle demise
sometimes flagrant
often wise
it always conveys the meaning
to which way the poet is leaning

be it politics,sorrow,self-pity or strife
or simply a love song,an ode to "the wife"
some get lengthy, brittle and old
as well do poets(or so i am told)

an attempt to assign language
to events of quantum uncertainty
a user interface
of possibility
so that reason can dance
with insanity

Something you had to read in school for a grade. Otherwise you would not have bothered.

The naked truth
partially hidden
under threadbare underwear
and a motley of one’s finest clothes
thrown hastily over
a declining body
as one gets ready for the ultimate ball
w here the Prince or Princess Charming
will finally and definitively
not appear.

a letter that had got misplaced,
never before opened,
from a former lover
you thought had dropped you
so you wept, you gnashed your teeth
you told the story over and over again
to your most patient friends
and then
you found your second best,
your plausible other
and you settled in to loving her.
And you did a pretty good job of it
until, one day, you discovered that letter:
My dearest, most beloved,
I will always...

what's left
of a crude
ungainly chunk of marble
after all the extraneous bits
have been chipped away

Like_a , Morph: Thanks. Morph, I especially like the reticence, the economy of your last stanza.

A poem is
the way my pen bleeds
when I drag it through my heart
and yet, when it dries,
to thin delicate rust-red swirls,
I see my love for you


Marvellous! Thanks.

A poem is....
signs of
our times
brush strokes
in colors blue
unfaithful blokes
and lovers untrue
ladies of the night
fantasies of life
stars and moonlight
success and strife
dreams alack and alas
boldly painted on
the canvas
of life ...

...a note to yourself
to remind you
of where you've been
or would like to go
and sometimes, hopefully,
where the aitch you are
right now!
