A Bad Poem (Satire)

You sit in dark obscurity
watching me,
watching you,
and we watch each other
in quiet silence
in the dark and
alone, only because
we’re silent.
Rhymes lost in
of repeated consonants
meaning nothing,
and without intended expression
of incomplete words
reflecting absent thoughts
that aren’t there.
I think you and I,
the two of us,
grammatical infectors
of every day communication,
are like a lousy poem
no one wants to read,
except for you and I,
the two of us,
till we’re sick of it
but we’re afraid
with fear of an ending
far worse than the beginning
when it started,
and so we sit
silently in the dark,
saying nothing.

"In the dark and

Haven't we all felt this way, some time or another? Beautiful. One poem, and you've got me hooked.

This made me think of a poem I wrote: "dysfunctional poetry". I have really enjoyed the way you crafted this piece and the way you compared "bad poetry" to a difficult or troubled relationship.

Such truth in these words written. Only I believe do we not grow in our errors. Sometime to bring forth a breath of golden silence rewarding us in perfection in a poem. Carmen, I love your work. And, will continue to drop by from time to time viewing it.

I loved this...I think we've all been there and done that...I was browsing through some old poems just this morning, I did stumble across one or two that I written from a great inspiration, and then one or two I couldn't believe that I had written...who knows though what we esteem as bad, others may love. After all that's how poetry goes. Again, I loved this, anxious to read more of your work.

Reviewed by Kate Burnside 8/11/2004
Powerful and speaks volumes, Carmen! Very neatly constructed and conveyed with the objectivity that befits the mood. Yet this makes an emotional impact that is so poignant - especially with the music. Such sadness and pathos here. A very sophisticated write - nothing like the "bad poem/satire" mentioned in the title! Bravo! TY Kate xx

If writers block could be described as a stranger in the night, you got it right on target Sis. Our coffee is still sitting at the Blue Bottle getting cold, isn't it? LOL

I know that you know that I am reading this and you know that I know that you know I am reading this. Between the jambs of an enjambment I have to say the piece surpasses anything Rumsfeld ever did Carmen. Wonderful satire on the windbaggery of may establised poets.

Excellent work Carmen! Some of the best moments that two can share and treasure are the absolute silence and solace, yet, because communication is the key to any successful relationship lasting, one must never give up using that vital attribute. Outstanding work, my friend!
