UNDERSTANDING

UNDERSTANDING

A Poem by sette

THE CREATIVE JUICES 
KEEP ON POURING
THAT I CAN'T STOP WRITING.

THERE WERE THOSE TIMES
JUST LIKE THIS ONE,
THAT I FEEL MY WRITING
WAS MY HAVEN.

MY HAVEN FROM ALL THE HURTS
I HAVE EXPERIENCED LOVING YOU.

YOU, OF ALL PEOPLE
DID NOT UNDERSTAND
ABOUT MY WORK OR MY WRITING.

IT WAS ALWAYS A BATTLE
BASED ON YOUR MALE EGO AND
INSECURITY.

IT WAS TOO TIRING 
UNTIL I DON'T HAVE ANY RECOURSE
BUT TO LET YOU GO.

i believe if the one you love doesn't understand your poetry maybe the don't want or have the time to understand you. I think being understood, and valued for what, and who we are is so important for a better love.. Thanks for sharing

you are absolutely right in all counts my friend
Writing, a magical world in which we can choose reality or fantasy. It is a safe haven for writers, we control the genre, form and words. What we cannot control and my favorite thing about writing is we cannot control how others interpret. Love is a powerful thing, so elusive and finicky. You have shared perfectly the power play that exists when the imagination is greeted by a dominant force, in this case portrayed by a male. Do we drop our art or drop the dominant force? Wow, this one really got me thinking, great job. Cheers!

Easy to find safe haven in writing. Writing won't break your heart.
"THERE WERE THOSE TIMES

THAT I FEEL MY WRITING
WAS MY HAVEN."
