The Blogosphere Blues

This poem is linked to One Stop Poetry’s One Shot Wednesday.

The poetic blogosphere

Is awash in angst and pain

And so much introspection

It’s a burden on the brain

You’ll be exposed to sorrow

And emotions that run strong

To love gone unrequited

And of lives that have gone wrong

To those who quest for happiness

For years on endless years

When, in truth, real happiness

Is right between their ears

So cheer up fellow poets

A smile can be your drug

Life is sweet, its all okay

You all just need a hug

    sometimes a hug is all we need but without the angst and pain we wouldn’t be able to realize how nice the smiles and hugs are. Nicely worded.

    Your words definitely hit the spot…and produced a smile to boot….lovely

    I liked that. And it’s certainly and apt description of the poet blogosphere.

    Too funny– and too true! I was just talking with a fellow writer yesterday on poets about their melancholy; I mean, c’mon, only every other poem of mine is about death… 😉

    There’s somebody after my own heart! Laughter is free, and fun!

      Yup…I’m big on that laughter thing…that’s why I enjoy your site.

    haha! this made me laugh out loud! I have to say that a lot of my stuff is wrapped in darkness…

    Sometimes we all take ourselves way too seriously, don’t we? I like this rhyming poke of fun at the angst that too often flows through our poetic world. Good show VB
