Well I am Shy ...
but I won't be shy.
We've discussed this before ... you and I ... and you know I'm in your corner.
I hope this won't be seen as criticism ...
because it is sincere feedback.
Victor ... there's too much!
I find myself running through your posts at a gallop and if I don't instantly see a 'personal' note,
I gallop on. It's just too exhausting ... and a lot of the time I don't understand or it has no relevance for me.
Your heart is in the right place ... but your fingers are running amok ... :P
I'm risking offense in order not to be a hypocrite ... I had to say something.
I don't spend much time in 'Poems' anymore for the exact same reason you've posted this.
I'm sick to death of busting my ass making submissions ... getting over a 100 hits ... and not a single reply,
other than the regulars ... which is what ??? 6 ... 8 ???
I'd rather someone take a second and say ... "This is shit!" ... rather than get nothing at all.
Granted ... a lot of my stuff is shit ... but there is some good stuff there too that doesn't get acknowledged.
I do keep up and read everyone's posts ... but I only reply now if it touches me in a personal way ... if I have something to say that is significant for either the poet or myself.
I know that's contrary to what I've just said about getting no replies ... but one can't reply to everything ...
and sometimes I'd like to but don't know what to say ... so I'm guilty too ...
considering the few posts submitted by only a few of us versus the 100's of people viewing ...
it's pretty damn discouraging.
Everybody out there ...
SAY SOMETHING!!! ... at least once in a while.
((( v-v )))
Experience is a brutal teacher.
