"The most important things  are the hardest things to say......The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away.  And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you've said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it.  That's the worst, I think.  When the secret stays locked within not for want of a teller but for want of an understanding ear." ~~~Stephen King, Different Seasons ~~~


  I was reading this the other day, and it made me think of all the things I've posted at Passions.  Most of my poetry comes from life experiences, and a lot of it deals with my own feelings.  I tried to show one of my friends something posted here and the reaction, I think, hurt almost as bad (if not worst than) the event that inspired the poem.  She didn't understand, or didn't want too, and no matter how hard I tried to understand where she was coming from, I kept getting upset because it was something I thought I'd be able to talk about with a close friend.  (((Talk about a run-on sentence...    )))  Anyhow, I wanted to take a minute to thank everyone here who reads what all of us write and replies... And takes the time to try to understand.  Even if most of us don't know each other from Adam on the street, it's still nice to know someone somewhere cares enough to "listen" to our words.     I'll finish this now, before I start to ramble too much.  I guess I just want to thank everyone again and give all of you a big pat on the back for being "a understanding ear.."      

  
        THANKYOU!      


With a little piece of tomorrow,
You'll have to kiss yesterday goodbye.
Because today won't last forever,
And the past will only make you cry.

I feel the same way, thank you for this post, it tells me others experience the same thoughts and expression as I do!!

What is that you express in your eyes? It seems to me more than all the words I have read in my life.

Hi Angel,

I also want to thank you for posting this because I to write from life's happenings and my own veiw points, I am always worried about up setting someone with my poetry or replys its hard sometimes to know just what to say so no one is upset or if I do not understand thier work sometimes I do not reply even though I want to because I am not sure if I have gotten the message right. I find when I am having a hard time with life I read alot of the poetry here but do not answer because I can not come up with the right words and if makes me mad because I feel I am not doing my part to encourage the other poets. Passions has changed so much just since I have been coming here and its really hard to keep up, but I try and I think alot of others feel the same. Now that I have rambled on thanks for this post again.

Love, Cerenity

Isn't it strange I can make comments about certain poems that really hit close to home, yet I can't say the same thing to people so close to me. I'm afraid they won't understand that I do know what people are writing about. It's so good to have somewhere to go and not fear being laughed at are just plain ignored

I can relate 100%, because the poem that I just finished for my sick friend would be in your same category - 100% feelings, but I will never show this to him (unless he recovers), because I know the pain and hurt in the poem would be difficult for him to understand from my POV. I think if he read this poem, it would make him veru upset.

I guess I feel the same way. I have trouble telling people what I'm really thinking, because if they think my statement is stupid, it's like saying I'm stupid. I have this thing where I just don't talk, and here I can ignore that maybe half the time, so that is really awesome. Maybe in time I can get rid of the stupid barrier completely, but not yet. (Man, I'm screwed)

....peace as a primary objective is dangerous because it implies that we would sacrifice anything for the sake of it....

Ya know, you guys... Feelings aren't silly or stupid... They're reality - They're the core of who and what we are... No one's feelings should ever be cast off as irrelevant.  We can all feel differently, and there are no rules that define just "HOW" we should feel.  That's why this is indeed such a PASSIONATE Place...

Thank you all for being here...
