Pages full of words
Ravings of half mad poets
Cloud my mind with emotion
Love, hate, anger, passion

Too many feelings
To feel at once.
Frustration...pains
Confusion...reigns

Words splashed upon the page
And called a poem
Like as a painter squirting globs of paint upon a canvas
And calling it art

Meaningless...random words...
that say so much!

As if I didn't have enough enemies.

LOL...this was pretty funny. And a very apt description of what goes into the making of a poem. Words do cause havoc at times. Especially the written word. We can't hide from them.

I think my all time favorite of this poem is this: "Frustration...pains/Confusion...reigns."

Great work Dan. I am very happy that you invited me to your den. And sad I didn't stop in sooner. ~ Sara

You've made a great splash here. From one artist to another - write on or paint on...your preference. Guess its all in how you want to see the world. Nice poem. ~Trish~

I pressed the wrong button while sending to another poem so I am commenting on two here. I like the way you expressed yourself here. I forgot until I started writing here just how much of the heart is seen when placing words on a page. The second comment is for a Later Winter Morning. It is the little things that are so important and you show it well in that poem. I also understand the frustration of the camera not getting the picture you had in mind........Its the camera really!!! not me.

Excellent !!!!!
Reviewed by Jeanette Foresta 3/26/2002
Yes, your words say so much. There are about four emotions here that you can elaborate on in perhaps another poem? ;) One emotion at a time. But, then again, an artist does not use just one color to paint a picture. I like the splashing of feelings here.

This is good, really good. You have captured the essence of a poetic mind. Words are the paint that create the image. The type and font are the painters brush. Random emotions captured on paper....words are powerful!
Bravo, I really enjoyed this one.

Sorry Dan......Some corrections here from my last response:

~~~~~~~~~


A man who manages a shop
is called a "manager"

A person who sings
is called a "singer"

A person who reads
is called a "reader"

A person who speaks
is called a "speaker"

A person who sells
is called a "seller"

A person who buys
is called a "buyer"

....but.....

A person who writes a poem
is not called a poemer;
and is called a "Poet".

.....and.....

of course,
a "Poet" writes "Poems"!
