A Chapter by Ana Papaya

~

after a while
you learn the history of the place
you get to know those who come and go
the near connections formed and broken
       by new connections formed and broken
and the fallouts that follow
you see the clues left, found and misinterpreted
and every so often you shake your head
you see this girl has fallen
for the same lines that guy has already used
  (on that other girl several times)
and those who think that person
    is being more than just nice
plus the poor guy who really is getting served a dish of ice
you learn that people will hate you  
          because other people like you
and that a lot of people will only pretend to
  you see that big hearts break as much as cold ones
people will get angry and start to cuss
   you'll make enemies both silent and loud
you see the dirt of the place and its ugliest face
but you see something beautiful too
   from those very rare few
who share easy smiles and kind moments
   encouraging words with hearts wide open
the thumbs up and hearts left behind
   with kind comments that serve to remind
that some people are worth coming back for

Ah, the fickle hand of misinterperation at its finest, as those who say, know without knowing and second guessing reputations into the gutter. I find it funny that so many of the prim and proper think they have any reputatipn left to uphold, what with so many knowing their guilty little secrets of gossiping and passing their warped suspicions as fact.
They paint us all with the same brush, knowing nothing but their own warped little minds diseased thoughts, that grow on each telling and I cant believe I have got this far without swearing at the arsewipes... Oops.
Oh, and there are a few players on here that do try their well worn lines on everything that moves, but I guess not using a pic and having an ambigious name like Lorry means that I was asking for it when they sent me yhose lines too. I swear one day im gonna post all those screenshots :)


On behalf of online maledom, sorry ladies.

I really like this and could relate to it absolutely. Once one gets the feel of the place, one really begins to enjoy it. Humans are very interesting, intriguing people and I always wish I had better observational powers as you have in this poem. I do grow very fond of some people and In any place, I’m a very loyal friend but I’m known for my extreme dislikes too. Can’t help that. I’m human.

I agree...You're most welcome :)
Wherever we go on- or offline, there are those we could learn to love or hate! (dislike if you prefer) But gut feelings are as good as any to feel til someone defies the truth of one's instinct!

Perhaps its better not to plonk people in certain places because human beings can't be put stuck under genre headings. Each of us is created by every kind of experience, place, emotion, etc Takes time to come to conclusions. No point in waiting to see the whites of eyes, nothing really works! Least of all in poetry sites - places of word-sharing. Does that mean only those displayed or those slipped under the door to our whatevers that have nowt to do with literature! Experience helps but is more like watching repeats hour after hour. Perhaps?.

(By the way, have ten year long friends in here.. think we've found something that can't be weighed up: acceptance without judgement and a good memory! )

Ugh.. damn Canadians. I actually did read all of this... but I still choose to get high and listen to loud music instead of leave a reasonable/insightful review. At least you know I'm good at telling you the truth... (you should seriously listen to the music I recommend to you)

Cool. You've summed poetry sites, fb groups, bars, churches, wine and yoga groups (they just started one here, I'm not in it) gyms, and pretty much every other social situation you can think of, what we hate, what hurts, and what keeps us coming back. You just miss the nice people that you interact with and hope to forget the jerks.

no problem,my pleasure, nuff said :)
I have gotten myself into trouble by misinterpering comments (as you well know), it's rather easy... I should have known better than to assume.... why do we assume so much without asking or looking more deeply??? unless it is done viciously, or with the aim of hurting someone, to listen and ask would stop a lot of needless and sometimes petty arguments that happen...
I guess coming back for someone is a question of forgiving, to get the person see how they have hurt someone so that they can change... of course some will never change... but then they were never friends to begin with...

anyway, I enjoyed your poem Ana, it has a content that can be used anywhere or any place...
