No Meaning, Just Feeling:

It's all just words across the page
You put them together in an angry rage.
You wanted to get these feelings out
But writing's not what this is about...

You're tired of expressing
How you think you feel.
You'd rather just scream
At least it's real....

No sense or logic
Just raw emotion.
Like the churning waves
Of a sleeping ocean.

Destroy the structure
Of all you say.
Take away the illusions
They get in the way...

Just say what you think
And you might go free.
But maybe this isn't how it's supposed to be...

"Is it really not possible, to scream through words?"

Arrr me hearties, there be another bonus release fer ya all t'day.

I'm feelin' right fine and once again, this be another poem from me highschool days, rewritten fer yer readin' pleasure.

When I wrote this one, I remember bein' very frustrated as I was unable to properly convey the kind of feelings I wanted to. To that extent, song would be easier than written word as ya have music ta set tha rhythm, but with words it's more difficult to do.

Still I think the rewritten version flows much better, the old one had far too much swearing and didn't even say much about not sayin' anythin'.

Speakin' of which, I hope yer all ready fer me resurrection comin' in just about 2 days from now. I hope yer all lookin' forward to the return of Chenbeard!

I really like this poem, in a way it describes what most of my high school experience was like, only more poetic.

True it is a lot more difficult to express all facets of emotions in just words, but when done properly, the result is more powerful than song, music, dance all put together.
