          I Write as I Write



           As for me,

           I write as I write!


           People know what I write;

           what I mean when I write.


           No mystical message

           to confuse those  that read

           what I write.


           I write for entertainment,

           no hidden intendment

           for one to weigh in one’s mind.


           My thoughts are open,

           no need to search for

           deeply hidden meaning.


           The pictures I draw are drawn

           in words so you see what

           I see.


           The pictures I draw are drawn

           in words so you feel what

           I feel.


           Love is written on pages of paper

           in black on white

           in words of scarlet desire.              


           My passion easily felt,

           easily sensed and simply seen:

           as man into woman,

           as woman onto man.


           No mistaking the heat of

           my words with hidden

           meaning along with

           barely decipherable emotion.


           Writing portrays me

           as one of straightforward

           words void of shrouded

           meaning because

           I write as I write

And that is the best kind. But some feel obligated to write in mysterious code because they're afraid to express what they really feel, or because they can't express what they really feel in words. Sometimes I write satire because the words cut to much.

A great philosophical piece. Thanks for writing it.

You certainly do, Mark, and that's the kind of stuff I like to read....I'm not much into interpreting other's thoughts... straightforward is much better! And you, my friend, don't mince words...giggle....

Your pal,

Straightforward is a good thing Mark, I hate to have to pull out a dictionary to decipher a bunch of less than meaningful words.
