All A Bit Broken

Inspired by a comment made by one of my favorite bloggers.

"all a bit broken, most of us here"
was what she said to me

out in a wordpress comment thread
of this community

of bloggers, and our passions
and the sorrows that we share

the loneliness and grieving
and the naked souls we bare

that don't fit with the vacuous
facade that is facebook's

here honest ugliness counts more
than model phony looks

for even fiction is more real
than truth that is lie-packed

wordpress bloggers have at least

    1. Thank you. You are one of my favorite poets, by the way, I think you’re brilliant.


  1. Great words. And nice words from your friend, I recently quit the FB also. She expressed it very well.
