I'm Sorry. This Fucking Mess is Upsetting Me


The poem that I've written here

Expresses how I feel

Though unexpected from my norm

They're things I won't conceal


You encourage me to speak my mind

OK ,yes, then I will

There are some certain things on here

Of which I've had my fill


Gutter language I rarely use

It's only when I'm angry

Which is how I feel right now

Read on, you'll understand me


I joined this website community to

Engage in cultural wit

But what I see, at times, to me

Belongs in a cesspit


So much fucking mess I see

Written on the site

Why can't poets lift their sights

And write 'bout something bright


So much fucking mess appears

Drugs, mind-blowing cheer

OK they do exist in life

Don't write, remind me here


You write you are depressed as fuck

This makes me feel real great

Are you trying to depress me too?

Make me commiserate?


I like my daily injection of

Poetry and wines

But don't like seeing needles giving

Acid-dripping lines


So poets lift your sights up please

Don't write your fucking mess

It just depresses me. The problem

Is yours to address

I'm active, keen and want to learn

And do not want to see

'depressed-as-fuck's', 'bleed-outs-on-floor's'

Or could it just be me?

Hi Don - appreciate your point of view on this matter but WoL has to be many things for many different people from many different backgrounds so a poetry community built on acceptance and variety is what I like to log onto each day.

Perhaps when you visit the site you should click on the 'All Blogs' link on the homepage where it's then easy to scroll through each new entry and just read a few lines to gauge whether or not the poem is to your taste. You can then choose whether to read more or scroll down to the next. Saves getting upset unnecessarily.

Have a good day buddy. C😃L

Anya - as long as it doesn't include 'depressed as fuck' , bleed outs on the floor, drug injected lines, slit wrists and such other fucking messes you'll be OK girl 😎

Well Don, it's good that you've got it off your chest and let us all know how you feel. The best thing is that you have done so in a humorous way and not resorted to venom and personal invective.

It has to be said that a lot of poetry is very is cathartic and may be why many of our members wish to express their feeling in such a form.

Can I remind you that you can of course cloak those poets who's work you find not to your liking so you won't be offended in the future.
