The Big Picture

The Big Picture

A Poem by kasanova
"

life as it is.

"

I'm still empty inside

But I'm still glad I lied

I need someone to perfect me

But I need to stay free

Don't want to get attatched because I don't want to break

Love is a lot like the apple and the snake

You can take a bite

But life won't go right

Soon enough you will find yourself

Stuck in a room with nothing but memories on a shelf

You can try to keep on keeping on

But it'll be hard when everything inside of you is gone

You must be stupid, you must lack common sense

Doing all you can just to live in the past tense

You'll spend time to figure what it's all about

Only to find your perspective was inside out

 

And after a dozen fake ones, you’ll finally smile

You’re free, you left your emotions outside in a pile

You will be happy, enjoying the fresh air

When suddenly you’ll see someone somewhere

Your mind and your heart will begin to reminisce

The bad and the good and I can’t stand this

It’s a cycle - it never ends, never bends

It never mends, it just blends

Experiences and lessons make a mixture

And that’s when you’ll finally see the big picture

This was pretty great. You approached the whole idea with taste and led us through the stages very well. I love that you had a loose structure and didn't try to fit this work into such a tight box that the theme would be lost. Excellent job.

Love can be many things. I lost a lot more then I won. I wouldn't trade one memory away. Today I have many rewards for a life seeking love. I had days where the beer and whiskey was my only friend. I raised up and found the right road.

If you don't join the dance. You won't know any pleasure. Thank you for a poem that open the door to a big discussion. A excellent poem.

you certainly know your way around a couplet rhyme - I like the beat of it - the content - the heart can be a fickle thing and stores the emotions the brain neglects - I like the resolve - of finally seeing the big picture - nice!
