Not sure as to the category, but...

Seems I have fallen out of favor,

Reviews I get but oh so few,

Maybe I have become to some a bore,

But the ones I get I do appreciate more…J


Some do get four score,

Then again some are left with none,

I have to say I do love what I get, never are they poor,

They do seem to come from the heart,

Though from some they seem to have exited with a fart…J


I continue to write,

Maybe my poetry has become something of a blight,

But still I try to be new and bright,

Though I know that sometimes it may seem,

Out in my head has gone my light…J

The bad thing about silent appreciation is that it is indeed unheard, but hopefully you can trust that you truly are appreciated more often than you might know. Enjoyed the double-reflection in FALLEN OUT OF FAVOR with its look both into the interiors of the poet and the creative community in which he participates:-) Peace and blessings,

Your light still shines, my friend - especially your humor light. And I think we all get far fewer reviews these days, so don't feel so glum, just keep on writing, it's therapeutic and fun.
