Instead of ripping the covers off,
          Shaking it violently,
                    And forcing cold breakfast down its throat,

I wish they would carefully wake a sleeping poem
And ask it gentle questions
          Before its dreams are forgotten
To be perfectly honest, I am by no means an avid reader of poetry (unless you count Dr. Seuss). But I wanted to give poetry writing a shot. Hence the spew of dreadful little poems that have suddenly appeared in my gallery....

Anywho, no hard feelings, Poetry. I think we're going to be friends.

This is so beautiful. Like any good piece of poetry, there are no ample words to describe how it makes the reader feel.

Poor poem.
I know how it feels to be abruptly woken up >.>

Especially after I have the best dream ever or if a really good dream never got finished.


And btw your poems are really good. Even if you're not an avid reader :D

I'm not a big fan of poetry, but as someone who always valued pondering on my dreams and not being so abrupt to deal with the real world at 6am everyday, this poem incited some anger in me towards society.

Reminds me so much of my english teacher... A bit of analysis is good, but for goodness sake, don't bleed it to death! Sometimes, I think as you said, the meaning gets lost in there. Wonderful and accurate statement.

the thing i love about art in any form is that it makes an idea real, physical and makes it hard to forget, sorry i feel a little confused. are you saying people force poetry? people forget their poems and feelings? i like this poem but i don't know what the message is completely

My thoughts: the MEANING of a poem shouldn't be overanalyzed or forced. Poetry is meant to be beautiful. Sometimes when we try to find THE meaning of a poem (aka. what the poet was intending), we end up destroying what we as individuals can take from it. Make sense? :)

I don't think so! Analyzing a poem and ripping it limb from limb are two different things, I think. You were analyzing (and hey, the poet was actually accessible!). English professors tend to do the ripping. Like, if someone asked you to write a 15 page paper on this particular poem... yeah. That's just taking all the fun out of it (and frankly, there probably isn't 15 pages worth of meaning here unless you rip the thing to shreds, anyway).

well it still had a meaning and i had almost thought there was multiple meanings
