Poem - You Dropped Me!

Hey!
I saw that
You dropped me
You skittish little cat
Was it an anomaly
Or an act of disgust?
You can leave if you want
But ask you I must
Why?
Did I follow too much?
Or am I just too sensitive
My words just a crutch
For over-wrought emotions
Crying all the time
Well that's not it friend
So now I draw the line
Don't follow
If you can't stay
I'm just another typist
Best get out of my way
But I really rather you hang around
And help me on my path
We can disagree about life
But let's remember to laugh
Ok?

Great poem...I like your style of writing...I found the subject intriguing in its lack of context

Thanks Daniel... I'm pretty straight forward I guess when I write.... that's an interesting idea... lack of context.... that keeps things fluid and evolving....

I love it, SP. It's nicely raw without being maudlin. You're good at owning your feelings and I admire that. The poem is really nice.

Thanks pitviper...

You'll have to tell me how you got away with a one word comment because hubpages always seems to spank me for that kind of brevity....

I am a man of few words. Nice summed it up.

I've ventured a one-word comment at times and was chastised & prevented from posting it till I added more, too. "Nice" can be quite sufficient, or "wow" or "what?" - but the system usually objects on the basic of brevity. Silly, isn't it?f

Or maybe there are robots who can utter single comments . . .? If so, perhaps they should be encouraged, especially if the comments fit the post!

Perhaps Nice with a period counts as 2 words.

Nice is good... I'm good... Anything is good as long as it is encouraging... as for the brevity issue and hubpages it goes with the statistics into the box labeled "awaiting further light."

Short, sweet and clever. Thanks for sharing. I like the short poems that give us a quick something to think about as we go about our day.
