Life Misunderstood

To understand misunderstanding
You must forget all you know
Nothing makes sense anymore
Not even green lights or stop signs
Language is not what it used to be
Where's my muse?
Where's my light?
Where's my knight in shining armor?
Where's the love of my life?
Where's my solace?
Lost in a never ending sheet of letters,
All jumbled, not making sense,
Forming unknown words to the minds eye
Never to be the same
Or always to be the same
Coffee or tea, white or black, stop or go,
Stay away, come near, don't speak, never stop,
Love me, hate me, rape me, date me, kill me, mourn me,
Misunderstood the point?
Slice me, dice me, wife me, leave me,
Cold, confused, stuffy, wet,
Don't let me drown in my misery,
Or float on despair,
I want to soar in happiness,
Door closed,
Misunderstood.

"So what befalls the flawless?
Look what I've built, it shines so beautifully now watch as it destroys me."

Very interesting and well thought out poem, the images made this reader feel the questions asked.

That ^ is always a good thing, the struggle for happiness is never an easy one.  This poem a feel of desperation to it and it's a great write.

I really like this eor...in a way i think i needed to read it. i wrote something called "misunderstood" that was about the world not understanding me. i like how you look at it. it's not us that are misunderstood, it's us that misunderstand the world...not understand life.

eor, how did I miss this one?

To understand misunderstanding
You must forget all you know
Nothing makes sense anymore
Not even green lights or stop signs
Language is not what it used to be
----------------------------------

Unbelievable lines, Nothing makes sense anymore-not even green lights or stop signs. The directness is outstanding
------------------------------------

Where's my muse?
Where's my light?
Where's my knight in shining armor?
Where's the love of my life?
Where's my solace?
Lost in a never ending sheet of letters,

Great intensity!

All jumbled, not making sense,
Forming unknown words to the minds eye
Never to be the same
Or always to be the same
Coffee or tea, white or black, stop or go,
Stay away, come near, don't speak, never stop,
Love me, hate me, rape me, date me, kill me, mourn me,
Misunderstood the point?
Slice me, dice me, wife me, leave me,
Cold, confused, stuffy, wet,
Don't let me drown in my misery,
Or float on despair,
I want to soar in happiness,
Door closed,
Misunderstood.

"So"


When read at a fast pace. The emotion is all over you. I don't know how I missed this?
you're back my man.

poe

If nothing is something
then everything is
our thoughts and feelings
and all that exists.

I just wanted to read again and again I liked this as much as I would like being understood and understanding.
