[prose] feelings in this moment

feelings

It just doesn't feel like my feelings
are important enough
to write anything about anymore.

Though the feelings
become more complex
and even deeper than ever before,

and though the years of healing
from abuse and abandonment
are still in play,

it just doesn't seem to matter,
these common complaints and
heartbreaks.

Words are trite and insufficient.

My function as a poet
feels oversimplified.

Hmm this I like - the analysis, though I don't think there can be a final conclusion.

Thank you.
I wrote another one yesterday but left it on my desk at work.

I worry - because it seems so many of us now feel this way, that we no longer have anything important to say. I wonder if that says about our society as a whole?

It seems like we either feel too much, or too little about things.

When words don't work anymore...
It is time to get out the fingerpaint!

Or virtual fingerpaint, as the case may be.
