I am not a poet(poetry thursday)

Makes me laugh
What is it
Catching my thoughts in solitude
Or just whiling away time in verses
Frankly much of poetry disgusts me
I have no patience to read abstract lines
Detailing personal thoughts and idiosyncrasies
Oh yes! I love penning down my thoughts
Whenever I can
And it’s quite pleasant to learn
Others find them interesting
But I cannot stand reading a whole poem
Even mine
As I move on
My truths move on
There is no life left in written words
They served me just fine
While I wrote them
They were just means
To vent fleeting emotions
But I am not a poet
I am just a simple man
Looking for some serenity
In this otherwise chaotic world

Good poem there. More than a poem, I thought it is a soul searching.

I generally like prose than poetry, where things can say in more details. I know peots want abstracts. But I liked the beauty poets put their thoughts.

I only wish I get those beauty to put something in prose.

Best regards,

Keep in touch.

I beg to differ,,,
U have emotions,sensibility,
thoughts and word power to express them..
after writing them ,u don't like to read becoz u want to go ahead with other ideas....
One can relate to ur words/thoughts so u r a poet!!!

Hello Abhay,

Sorry it took me so long to leave a comment, I've been so busy, but I have been reading. I just love this poem (can I call it that if you're not a poet?). The last three lines are exactly how I see it, very nice. Take care,

A cut rose is still beautiful and captivating even though it is dead. It's always the relationship between things that is alive. I love this poem, Abhay!

Thank you all so much! Your words mean a lot to me and I love your comments whatever they say. The issue is not whether I am a poet or not but I write in verses and you find them meaningful or of some value and there is a flow of ideas and thoughts amomg us. This flow is the most vital of all as we are learning from each other and growing everyday...
