You don't have to "get" me all the time

Definitions spring from words
Being read off the screen
Coming together in space to form
Automatically 
One universal theme

Some people "get it"
Some don't
Either way it's alright
I don't want to be analyzed
Just appreciated

~ Dana

  2. I understand. I bet we mostly all do some of the time. It's one thing to understand and quite another to communicate...:D

    1. Yes we all do at times, especially if the poem really speaks to you. You might find the need to really break it down. I think though that we should let the words take us where they want us to go.
