  1. 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.

      โ€œWords,โ€ 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…โ€did I say too much?โ€

      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.

      • 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.
