"POEMS THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN"
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
under moldy banana peels
& smelly coffee grounds
in the dumpster of hopes & dreams:
series of tear stained lines tracing
a dying heart's last beats:
that at one time held great promise
as they stirred in the womb
but they were prematurely born:
grief & overwhelming pain
as the Poet buries her young--
the poems that might have been.
(C) Copy written, 4 April, 2005, by Karla Dorman.

|Karla, you always make me want to cry, because you come out with poems that are very difficult to fault. Great write.
|Reviewed by Judy Lloyd (Reader)
|A sad write here Karla but oh so meaninful.|
|Reviewed by Mr. Ed
|Sadly true, but we should all probably go dumpster diving and retrieve those hopes and dreams - and recycle them.|
|Reviewed by M Flack
|Tragic and true. So many lost words left unsaid. Left unwritten. There is a stark beauty and truth in your words. Thank you...|
|Reviewed by Joseph* OneLight*®
|A deeply passionate write Karla.
Love & Light,

|Karla, Over the last few years I've watched while you've written and grown so tremendously. It's been a great and enjoyable trip. I hope you continue down the path, into greatness. Not only do you have the talent but you have the guts to reach way down deep and yank those words from the depths.
This was my favorite of all your writes. It breathed and it touched where most never would.
Beautiful poetry Karla!

|tinka says "excellent stuff", but I think this is beyonf excellent, this is GREEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT. I mean that sis, this is very deep, and very sad too, because I have found poems, that I will not take credit for, because they were written by someone else. Let not the poet die an untimely death. If I can ever find these poems again, I will share them. But they will not by under my name, except as the person who posted them. May the lord Jesus bless you, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

|Reviewed by Sara Coslett
|Excellent. I can so relate to this. It is amazing how many snippets I have lying around waiting for a series of lines. Actually, the poem I wrote tonight was one of those. LOL...we must be having a mind meld. ~ Sara|

|outstanding! your poem and the comments below have made me consider a new practice for me... hanging on to the ones that might have been. perhaps there time has just not yet come.|
|Reviewed by E T Waldron
|yes Karla is soaring again!;-) Or should I stay still afloate and hasn't come down since that ocean cruise;-) Brava! I too keep my old unfinished in separate folder and wind up with some goodies. However, I think you do too and this is just creating a great poem!
|Reviewed by L. Figgins
|Karla, this is great! But don't throw your premature babes in the trash, as with a little TLC they can be reborn! I still have my "chicken scratches" from decades ago and I have mined some gems from some of the verses...|
|Reviewed by William Bonilla
this is outstanding
Sad but a masterpiece
a kepper for sure
William .....Peace & Love

|Funny how sometimes our inspirations just don't pan out and we have to scrap the mission. I have a folder that I keep in my documents with good lines from failed poems. When I am looking for inspiration I can go there, find a line that I like and with new energy and a new attitude, I can usually write something that I am happy with. Keeping the folder of lines helps keep me from mourning that bit of brilliance in an otherwise mediocre if not down right lousy piece of poetry. Nice job with this one, Karla.
