Who hasn’t thought as such? The fool only I suppose but who is he, them or me?
Great stuff Dave and very thought and soul twisting stuff indeed. Peace~ John
Indeed, life is an enigma and sometimes questions only deepen the mystery. I appreciate your comments John, thank you. ~ Dave
love the piece and how it’s a photograph of the piece itself. Lovely.
I can’t seem to get away from photography…even when I’m writing 🙂
Thanks for the kind words, always appreciated. ~ Dave
Well you’ve been to my blog so you know I feel the same. One almost always feeds into the other.
Depending on if your question is rhetorical or literal, it is something that plagues most writers. It would also depend upon the circumstances. Was it something that was said that hurt another person or simply something written that causes you to feel insecure due to the honesty of the statement?
If it is something that is written then it is something that plagues most writers. Most writers write from their heart which can expose their vulnerability. It then depends on how secure you are with your vulnerability. Most writers are insecure with this in some way but usually find out that by exposing their vulnerability through honest expression, others relate and find they are not alone in their own insecurities. Thus the job of the writer has been rewarded.
Just my thoughts.
Matthias…thank you for your comments. You’ve obviously put a lot of thought into this. I think whenever I write there is probably, to some extent, some autobiographical elements involved…whether I like to admit it or not, but I would not consider myself an insecure person…I’ll readily admit when I’m a jerk…but I may add a little humour to soften the blow.
“Words,” is a poem of reflection, and basically just came to me while I was considering a lifetime of words that I’ve uttered and perhaps the effect those words have had on people I know either for better or worse. Personally, I’m going through what I consider some major paradigm shifts in my life and I’m questioning if the words I’ve spoken in the past are consistent with my view, or position, on things as I see them now? Thus the question at the end of the poem…”did I say too much?”
Anyway, a long answer perhaps for a question you weren’t even asking, but, thanks again and take care. ~ Dave
Thanks for your explanation. I didn’t put much thought into what I wrote. I was simply expressing how I perceived the poem. Poetry is subjective and, once released from the writer, is left to the interpretation of the reader. If I’ve offended you in any way by my interpretation, it wasn’t my intent.
No offense taken…I enjoyed your comments and was only too happy to reply. Thanks again my friend.
Perfect. I do appreciate the explanation of your poem because I enjoy understanding what the writer is truly going through and why they wrote the poem.
I was always amazed how the hand puts the inner words on paper making that personal handwriting. You’ve made a great piece with this, Dave.
Yuriy, my friend…your words are a joy to me. Thank you so much. ~ Dave
Thanks Dawna…always good to hear from you. Hope all is well. ~ Dave
My pleasure Dave. Yes, everything is well. 💕
