I'm as confused as anybody else.

The thunder rolls around my den
The lightening flashes in my brain
The back and forth ideas and scorn
And immatireal prase.
The wounded egos
Waxing tears
And raging at the scorn
Of better writers
Better words
But bitter were they born.
Yet Truth I read,
Of Anger, Angst
Of Loneliness and Hurt,
Of Beauty, Passion, Sex and Love
Depravity and Dirt.
Of inward souls and outward minds
And Searchers for a Truth
And desperate pens
With kindly wens
All scratching for a proof
Of nubile minds
Who dream in kind
Testoreronic youth
Of wailing widows,old and young
And widowers the same
Of lonely hearts
With songs unsung
They ply thier words again
They leave me sitting, pen in hand,
And ink, idea absurd
To lose the thought
To delve inside
This mishmash of
The word.

Hi Pedro,

Wishing you all the best. This poems spoke to me of opposites: the sacred and the secular, exile and belonging, humor and wry sadness. A very strong poem.

I remember with fondness the roundable and miss it sometimes. It actually brought a dark side of me, that I've never seen before. It was interesting to see the way one interacts with others under certain conditions. I'll always be grateful for that. I learned to not cybershout at others now. :D~ It's quite a strange world, indeed, but then, whose normal? And according to whose's perspective? Ayayayay.

Am happy without it.

Take much care of yourself, and keep the passion. Your writes are lovely.

Minerva Bloom~
