Iím trying to make the best of this funk that I am in
Falling upon deaf ears since I love to always win
Each door in the house has been slammed shut with a bang
If I wonít talk, just get mad, then maybe I should hang

Itís silent that is for sure, now at least I can think
I am wired I am tired I cannot even blink
Wherefore is the justice in being mad at dear me
Shouldnít I be able to say Iím sad let me be

Coffee tastes bad when you donít know how to make it
Everything tastes bitter when thatís how you take it
And I canít even say sorry for all are asleep
How can I loose the funk if Itís me thatís the creep

Walt,

I hope you've lost the 'funk'.  I don't think you're a creep.   )

"everything tastes bitter when that's how you take it..."

This is just plain Good, Walt---even with your way out style, you always manage to hit the nail on the head...described this feeling quite well...

Aww Walt! I hope you are out of your funk now. I think this poem describes the feelings very accurately.

Love and hugs,
Lizzie

Good Poem there Way out --)

Sad, bitter coffee -- hope you feel better.
I was always told no matter how mad
you are - never go to bed angry.

But, things we are told, don't always
work out --)

Cheer up chappy, I hate to see a fellow poet down in the dumps especialy when it's someone who's as positive as you are usualy . Things only taste bitter if you make them like that, therefore believe that it's nice and you'll feel alot better and life will get tastier to . Liked the poem as usual it said loads and Serenity's comment about the nail on the head also hit the nail on the head when talking about hitting the nail on the head .

Walt~
Everyone knows these feelings unfortunately  
Great poem although you must be going through a tough time to have written it and I'm sorry to hear that.

Walt~
When you're feeling punk
with a little dose of funk,
give it chase you little booger !
All it takes is
a spoon full of sugar !

Awww Walt! ~BIG HUGS~  We all get in this funk trust me. I was just in it for quite a while.  I know it's not easy coming out of it, but trust me, you will.

I too have slammed some doors, and said some things I shouldn't have. It's hard for others to understand. (One's in the household anyway)

Keep your eyes up and remember to thank God, even if it was a icky day. I sure hope your funk goes away soon, I know it's no fun being there.

Walt, I hate being the creep too...makes you feel so alone. Loved the way you expressed all this, and can relate far too well. ((you)) more hugs for you...

walt~
It's been a while since I read any of your poems or written any either.  But from what I can remember from last year when we used to talk you're not a creep you're a very talented person in a funk.  Walk, talk and write it away.  I was formerly Augchic711.

Awesome look into yourself, Walt.  And the bravest poets show us their true selves, which you have done here.
