I don't think people really like me ! a poem :-}

Oh yea people smile at me and say
he he he ......yet they look away from me oh so soon

I don't think people really like me they turn away
and whistle a meandrous tune

They keep on talking like what I said was a silent movie
no sound just black and white

I'm telling you my hubber friends something
just isn't going right

And hey how about I meet you so and so
and then I wait alone as they just never show

I'd love to think I was worth knowing
then again I just don't know

The only place anyone's ever seemed to
know me like it wasn't a chore

Was here among my hubber friends
yet look at my damn score

Sniff sniff sniff........:-}

So, we ain't purty no more, ahorseback. We used to be didn't we? But our memories may be a bit suspect at our age I suppose.

I know the feeling ahorseback. I feel too that what I say here has more impact then what I say in person. I Guess I can get my message across more clearly in writing than spoken word. As for attractiveness, well age seems to dictate that to some extent. I know I'd like to be 20 years younger but beauty is skin deep anyway. I think the words you write say more about you...and your poetry makes you worth knowing. I have managed to get my score above 90 twice, but it has only stayed there a couple of days. Unfortunately HP staff just don't rate poetry highly enough and we just have to live with it.

I pretty much an endorsement from me would not help much, so how about this: This was terrible and talk about ugly!!

(that may help your score ;-)

I think that a lot of people wonder if they are really liked and if others are just pretenders. Maybe this is because we all pretend some time. I loved your poem. I voted up so hopefully your hub score will rise!

North wind !.I actually don't care about score or points here ,I was mostly kidding around in this hub ! Yet on some personal level I wonder , some people are just more magnetic than others , or for a woman is it an attractiveness to image , to scent ? To the way a man dresses , or acts ? Who knows . Thank you for dropping in !

Hub score!!!!!!!!!! Once mine got up to 96, now 82. I think people who write poetry are not liked too much, or if we don't write for money, we are out of the loop. I don't let it bother me. You Mr. Ed are a good lQQking dude and i love your poems, so chin up and keep em coming. Smiling BIG time.......

I started a poem one day when I felt a bit on the bumming side. I never could get past the first two lines...I am a nobody in a sea of somebodies. My voice is barely a whisper above their roar. Then I happened to check on a hub and had a half a dozen comments that I didn't expect. After that I never finished it.

As for that hub score...if it judged us by how well we were liked, I would be at the bottom of the bucket...LOL! Just kidding! Mine dropped like a rock when I took a break from HP for family matters. It is a slow struggle to get it back up. I figured maybe some day I will see 100 again.

I have loved your poems. Your descriptions make me feel as if I am a part of them. Keep 'em coming!
