Post Or Not Post


Have you even posted something,
After many years and get no replies?
Well I never!
I simply go back and post my own reply.
"Hay! That was great! Good job! Keep it up!"
Then I feel better....

Way I figure be crazy.
If they don't like you,
They'll pray you go away.

It's hard to post something again,
When you realize only after the last post.
"Hay! That was STUPID!"

Makes you think.
Maybe they'll get their wishes to their prayers.
"The idiot has finally went away!"

No.  Only for a while.
It's not easy to be smart
Makes you feel ashamed

I finally figured it out  
It wasn't my fault
It was,
"Poetic mescaline!"

Not to be taken in large doses
Before thinking or reasoning.
You know us self induced dreamers
"We're always making up things!"

So post a reply,
"Or I will!"

Merlyn, What a poem, I really enjoyed the theme of this since I've been there to, but I would be to subconcious to reply to myself. I can tell you though I don't pray you to go away, your poetry and Prose is much to interesting and I thank you for sharing.

Thanks people, you've given me a large pill of "poetic mescaline."  I'll try to reason before I swallow.
