I write them as I get them.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~
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.

A sad write here Karla but oh so meaninful.
Reviewed by Mr. Ed 4/5/2005
Sadly true, but we should all probably go dumpster diving and retrieve those hopes and dreams - and recycle them.
Reviewed by M Flack 4/5/2005
Tragic and true. So many lost words left unsaid. Left unwritten. There is a stark beauty and truth in your words. Thank you...

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

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

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...

Wow! Karla

Reviewed by Sherry Heim 4/4/2005
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.

Take care,
