these bitter words fall
from my eyes, to land
onto a blank page.

my life story etched
with years of regret ...

these acidic tears
burn like n o t h i n g else ... .

.. must poetry be
so painful to write?

(c) 2009, Karla Dorman (8/29)

poetry, the emotions of the heart and soul -- some are tender and beautiful -- we want to live them every moment -- others are difficult and tear deeply at our emotions, -- it is the blend that makes us poets, Karla -- so we write some with acidic tears and some with honey and rose petals -- peace and love my dear friend --Jon Michael

I feel this, all too well. Just beginning to let it out.

Raw truth abrades like sand paper across our wounded hearts at times and informs us of our worth and of our experiences of life as we travel onward. So well expressed here Karla. hugs and prayers, J'nia

Very well expressed.

Poetry, although heart rending to write at times, is cathartic and in the end I generally feel much better.

Reviewed by Tom Hyland 8/31/2009

Poetry, not unlike Song-Writing, oft' expresses many emotions -

and more, more, MORE! The entire gamut of humanity, as well as in humanity ...


And, think about it - what IS a SONG after all? Is it not a POEM set to MUSIC?

Did not the original Balladeers
stroll the streets,
strumming their lutes,
plucking strings,
singing tunes?

Telling Stories - is this not what it is all about?

I feel Lousy - Let Me Count The Ways!
But, surely - there will be better Days!
I feel Good - see it in my Lays -
Perseverance always Pays!

Tooth and Nail -
Nail and Claw -
Hang in There -
Pussycat -
Survive it All!

Peace - Love - Abundance - TomPussy!

Better to write than to internalize I suppose. I believe the poetic soul to be a sensitive one. Perhaps writing is indeed the easier, softer way. Nicely expressed Karla.

It seems so and yet it heals, I hope, Karla.
You express yourself freely which is true poetry.

Yes, poetry must be painful to write and to read. But if your heart is not in what you wrote, it will never hurt.

All emotions are part of who we are, live for today and let the past rest. Keep writting dear Karla and accept what is, what was and what shall be as part of God's plan.

Newfie hugs are on the way, Rose

Poetry without feelings is just words smeared with ink, poetry with feelings can't be faked! Yes, it is painful, because it's true.

Lori Moore expressed my thoughts. I use poetry to rant sometimes and it helps me to gain perspective.

Poetry and pain often go hand in hand, but it is such good therapy.

Perhaps not painful to write, but certainly born of pain. It's the power of these emotions that move us ... and our readers. ;-)

That is a timeless question, Karla.
Unfortunately, I don't have the answer.
You've asked it well, my friend. God bless.
Reviewed by Swan Son 8/29/2009
I confess I must go back and read more of your poetry -- I am always impressed by what you write. Let those bitter tears and words flow so that one day you can put that aside and let the love you do have flow onto that page. I do think poetry can be painful to write because when we write we usually are facing painful moments of our lives we wish we could forget. Remember - each word and tear helps another face their life's troubles with courage when they realize they are not alone. Remember Karla - you are never alone. Take care. Susan
Reviewed by Regis Auffray 8/29/2009
I think so, Karla; honest poetry is sometimes very painful to write and to share. Thank you. Love and best wishes,

It's a hard question to ask and a harder one to answer. Just keep going.

You write with an honesty, a poignancy, that cannot be denied. Powerful pen, and I love the piccy! Very well written/illustrated; brava!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :(

I think poetry is painful to write if we have pain inside of us. As you know, I have blurted out some of my worst sins here at AD, trying to find someway to put the past away so it would not bother me. I have finally done that. No more do I write of my sins, just memories. They are what they are.
