"Understanding"

"Understanding"

A Poem by Silente
"

Laughing... Crying...

"
Was I ever anything other than a row boat of understanding...
Was the load a toad that couldn't carry the weight of our laughing...
Might as well be cashed-out and standing in the rain
cause you feel no pain when trading me in for gains...
I'm alone and in vain I seek growth with a cane and rope
hope my choke can be caught before it hits the moat...
Rote slop of gropes in the dark
where was I when the mark missed its lark...
I'm hearkened to flop...
So start to stab me every which-way...
I'm heading for memory lane and it's a lame avenue of grain-free
now free but am a seed for the thousands of leeches infecting peaches... 
Molesting creatures...
Electing reavers...
So quiver and see this
hear wit betrayed
leap of faith
marmalade-aid and sated breath today...
Baked blaze and graze...
Now red-in-the-face I take a taste of fae-waste
 that pale-place when aced of graceless lace I hasten traces of pages placed... 
Intent I create craters in a maze of traitors
that bladed saber hater...
I hate her,
and savor another suitor forever suited for her labors   
Later, Gator...

Hi Silente,
I tried very hard to understand the meaning of your words but, as you know, I'm not English mother tongue and switched a lot of times the page of your poem with pages of translators. I'm gonna try more. But I just want you to know I read your poem and found it nice (for what I could understand).

Gee wilickers boys and girls… I wonder why this vacuous SJW d********g ran away with his tail between his legs? I wonder why that "social writing site" turned out to be a fake effort abandoned almost immediately by it's own creator?

Eggregious hypocritical virtue signaling bully games never work out in the long run. I'm glad you realized how embarrassing your actions were/are. Maybe if you had some substance behind your populist rage you'd be worth something... but alas... you turned out to truly be intellectually vacuous.

And I'm not even going to get into the plagiarism accusations against you. (which is probably the real reason you ran away like the coward you truly are.)

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes. Enjoy your shame. I hope you learned something.


Regards,

-- you know who this is... I never blocked you, ya coward. Despite all of your bullshit... you are still welcome to say whatever you want to me publicly or privately. And if you had any balls, personal integrity or honor you wouldn't have had to scurry away like you did. We could of talked like men and I would have been more than happy to debate you. You chose to act like an SJW bully. You did this to yourself...

(also, stop plagiarizing other peoples work... if your that intellectually bankrupt you have to resort to that s**t... maybe writing just isn't for you)

I look forward to your further cowardly silence.

Understanding usually requires accepted meaning or reference points that are easily communicated. There seems to be more attention here to rhyme than meaning and much of it seems contrived and meaningless without clearly communicating an expression that is not dedicated to the sound of the words. I have never been a fan of rhyme simply for rhyme's sake but believe poetry should express an elevation in communication of common or exceptional values. I had rather the message be clearly communicated without rhyme than with rhyme and without clarity or meaning. These are my thoughts and opinions on the piece but do not reflect the opinions or thoughts of the majority of reviewers here. It is clearly a matter of taste in art. But don't be discouraged. My artistic tastes revolt at that which many renowned critics consider masterpieces.

Reminded me of Andronicus with Understanding, laughing and crying.
At the end of the day nobody understands perfectly as well as well do deep down.
Another great write from you.

Thank you, Poet face, I read the poem you mentioned... Was good stuff
I like how it started as smooth and soft and ended hard and dark. You talk about relationships in life and in people a good transcending way in a whole new spectrum of joy and darkness as well as hard upfront. Do continue to bridge a gap through your poetry.

Sincerely,

Thank you, Cap! I shall try
It seems that You understand all whom are around You but no one around You do the same for You, or at least pay attention to what You say or do, like they only take advantages from You without caring about what You want, it left You to be hurt and angry, feeling betrayed, and yes You hate betrayal.
Sometime You wish You can stop growing inside and keep Your being just "understanding", at some time You need to stop so others can catch up to You and You won't feel lonely again.
I hope I'm mistaken here, but this is what I got from Your words here.

Warmest Blessings*

"Molesting creatures...

So quiver and see this
