But

But

A Poem by jesserose99
"

we all have heard the word

"

The horrifying but

it comes unexpected

I'm telling you what


Your in perfect health

but...you have a lump on your throat


You know I 'd help you

but...Im in the same boat


Oh the big but

telling me what

you aren't going to do

or whats wrong with you

or whats wrong with me too


I love you...

but... I love another


it could be anyone I know

but....its your brother

'But' keeps us away from the things we want to do or love to do, 'but' builds fear in our mind.....I believe you are becoming a master on playing with words like this Jesse....Full rating....Very well planned and well thought out work....Full rating.....

But.....when that word is in a sentence, it negates all the words before it. Very true. Well written. Lydi**

thank you Lydi, you are always to kind!
"But" the inevitable pause of something bad forthcoming. The lovely positive followed by the negative proudly introduced by "But" If only it was butts they are nicer:)

If only we could take BUT our of English.....and fine people when they use it.....;)

Great writing!

I love visiting the farm, BUT the sun is harsh when I am working with a spade.
i love discovering bugs and whatnot, but not in my bed!
i love writing poems on the farm, but not walking up the hill to get internet access.....:)

glad you enjoyed it, but.....nothing
as the lovin' spoonful sang..."did you ever have to make up your mind?"

BUT, can you....yes, that word...that condition...always scary.

yes...a very scary one, who knows what one might ask as a condition.
Superb. Isn't it always the same? The smallest words have the biggest meaning. But, if, I...the list goes on. But you have captured the massiveness of that but to perfection here, no if's or but's.
