In Response to~ Poetry Picnic~Thursday Poets Rally~Week~57~Misunderstandings

Thank You Thursday Poets Rally for The Perfect Poet Award Week 57

I nominate Poet Emmet Wheatfall



Misunderstandings occur and
shatter thoughts 
unreasonable expectations grow secretly;
a shy smile, a soft giggle, a quick glance
unintentional false hopes build freely;
evil dances around perpetually 
colorful flashes engulfed in  sweet auras
mask truth ,
deception abounds continually
Helpless helpless more and more
I descend 
 stony emotions overtake gradually;

  4. this makes me think of jealousy, rage, fear and even maybe paranoia. all things I have been through, as we all have been through as human beings. i love the rawness of the piece. really great pen. happy rallying!

  6. The word seemingly obscured in this piece that is at the center of the situation described is "deception". Love of any kind cannot bear it. Very nice write! Well done!
    Our poems hold some similarity this week: http://charleslmashburn.wordpress.com/2011/12/14/a-thousand-candles/

  12. I love the way you have captured fleeting responses to another individual - the way the mind-spirit connection works.
