Here, I whipped this up for you:
Sharing is Creepy
Social media comes in many forms
and I'm not shy to say,
while so many freely open up
I've tried to stay away.
My privacy is important.
I don't want everyone to know,
each time a meal upsets me,
or if I've stubbed my toe.
I needn't share what was for desert,
or my next destination.
Perhaps it's best I chill before
I post carelessly in frustration.
Some seem to need an audience
for each moment of their life.
I like my friends, but many things
I'll just share with my wife.
Forgive me if I don't while the hours
in my monitor's dull glow,
lest I miss out on some tidbit
that everyone else knows.
A blank stare by those who can't look away,
like pretty girls and mirrors.
When did missing out on anything
become among our greatest fears?
So perhaps I'm just old fashioned,
I need to sign off when I'm sleepy.
Consider this before you post;
sometimes sharing's creepy!

ty. I had fun doing this once before. Over a year ago Ahorseback started a thread challenging everyone to do a poem with this title as the muse:
"Love in the opaque ........"
Here was my contribution:
Love in the opaque.
Give and take.
Kept interesting and new.
Love and this relationship,
there's always more to do.
Perhaps we'll never get it right,
and although close, it's never clear,
and yet it's this opacity,
that makes it all so dear.
As we assess in golden years,
what has made our lives worthwhile,
what things recalled from among it all,
still make us want to smile,
Embracing things we know are real,
dismissing what was fake,
the jewel that rises from the ash
is love in the opaque.
Day in, day out the alarm lets me know who is there and why
I dream of the forests and the wilderness
when I see your photoshops
your dresses and new tops
Twice an hour I'm reminded, and I start to sigh
the pictures of your dinner, and afterwards the mess
when I see your main course
your salad and new forks
The status of a relationship doesn't catch my eye
the bickering, and arguing your under so much stress
when I do see that you've parted ways
your new fling and his paydays
I start to think of all the secrets, that I'd like to keep
and realize that when you share
that you're kind of a creep
Let's see... sharing.. over sharing... to the point of being creepy and making ppl uncomfortable?
I'm so in!
The Girl Who Would Be Queen.
The fee for a non-male is high
we scrape the ground, but ne'r the sky
and always we are wond'ring why
the world is so unfair.
The time would come, once they had need,
those boys would start to pay us heed,
and we pretended every deed,
was something keen and rare.
Then as our breasts begin to bud,
emotions coursing like a flood
for womanhood is bound in blood
... a suitor won our hand.
But as we gave our thrones away
and let go of our yesterdays
In light of all that had decayed
... we doffed that binding band.
And though this is a forlorn tale
of hopes that die and dreams that fail
for all those who are still not male
I urge you to seen!
Because your heart is torn in two
And no one knows what you've been through
You must go back and find in you
The girl who would be queen.
abandoned, alone, watching
living in trash
adapting to my surroundings
I am what I eat
the rain is my water pressure
the sidewalk my patio
I am what I eat
I liked yours too... anytime a person uses the word "rubbish" I really enjoy that.
I heard the best thing on NPR today... it was a letter a man wrote back in the 30s to all the production companies, when he wanted to become a screenwriter. I'll see if I can find it. It reminded me of this one of yours.
Urg, couldn't find it... sorry.
Fun thread! We need more contributors. Come on folks, hop in...the waters fine.
disgust from the very musk that slide down your face
Covering the very being of my hearts disgrace
As the envy ran down my face
You had the nerve to speak I do
After everything that we went through
But I understand why the hand I was dealt
Wasn't filled with wealth
The night you call me
the night of your I do
You can have gold or a fool
I took the gold.
Shes stuck with you.

First I want to say up front that I am a Christian, but in my opinion Christians can be some of the meanest and most hateful people. Why is that? Why is it that the same people that talk about the loving God...
