Misunderstood

Misunderstood

A Chapter by Nix is typing...
"

Inspired by my best friend (and also NF)

"


No one sees you like they should

You're so happy outside

But so misunderstood

God, I wish I had your mind

That kinda raw talent only comes once in a lifetime

I wish I was as smart as you

You’re f*****g brilliant

So kind, yet so resilient

Your poems

So unique, so real

You write your mind

You never fail to reveal

How she hurt you

She did you wrong

So you put your thoughts,

Your memories, into a song

She said she loved you

Turned out to be a lie

She didn’t deserve you

To me, you’re the world’s greatest guy

So sweet, so bright

To my dark, desolate world, 

You brought light

You changed me for the better

Made me whole again

Every time I see your name pop up on my screen

I can’t help but grin

You’re always so positive

You always come with a smile

But your writings’ are so different

Cold and hard like tile

You hide behind a mask of happiness

When you’re really screaming inside

Whenever I’m sad

It’s always happiness and hopes you provide

You’re my best friend

And you changed me for good

You’re so happy outside

But so misunderstood...

Really excellent stream of consciousness Nix, and so glad you have found a soul-buddy. Great to have someone / something to celebrate.

Thank you so much, Red!!
Literally brought tears to my face!!!! So beautiful, emotional, sweet.... It reminds me of the way I feel about my own best friend; how I care so deeply about him and how he's the closest thing I'll ever have to a brother. Your writing just does that and I gotta say - this is one of my favorite poems you've written so far. I just love it so much! Can't stop rereading it because it's so raw and open and nothing is as beautiful and special as the love between two friends. FANTASTIC WORK!

AWWW! My heart literally filled with warmth when I read this review!! That's how I feel about Caleb,.. read more
I've told you this before, so you know how I feel about it. This poem reflects a strong point of view that rings as clear as a bell & it also shows imagination in presenting a long bout of adoration in ways that don't sound like the other million bouts of adoration being spilled forth as poetry. But it's clear to me that this narrator (presumably you) feels inferior to the guy she's touting & her poetic style reflects it. He's some deep tangled mystery & by comparison, this feels as if written by a 13-year-old, it's so lollipop simple & lacking in depth. "F*****g brilliant" . . . "the world's greatest guy" . . . "made me whole" . . . "can't help but grin" . . . I feel sorry for this narrator becuz it feels like she's dumbing herself down in order to make her man shine. That's what we used to do 50 years ago. Haven't young women grown beyond our stupid examples? Your writing is strong & well-crafted, clear as a bell, but your way of expressing yourself (shallow lovestruck dummy) is not ringing my bell (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thank you so much for your kind words, Kim!
I don't believe that, "I love you," is ever really a lie. It is society that lies to us, that tells us love has to look a certain way, but it looks different to all of us.
