*~why? ~

Poem By Mary Nagy

Why do we need to write?
Is it to know that we are read?
Or, is it for the need to purge
these voices in our head?

Perhaps we want to think
that someone may just hear
the thoughts we've set in motion...
even if they're not quite clear?

Maybe we go unnoticed
throughout our normal day?
Maybe we get ignored
yet we have so much to say?

I may not know the reason
that I write my thoughts to you
but, I know I will continue
and if you listen...I'll thank you!

I love to hear your poems Mary and you have so much to offer, there is something that I can really connect to in your words Thankyou so much Love duncan X
Mary u shouldn't need 2 thank us, we should be thanking u for writing great poetry. Hope u keep writing, best wishes, Willow.
You just keep on writing Mary and we'll keep on reading your lovely poetry. Enjoyed this one immensely. Love Ernestine XXX
It is a beautiful urge so well put in this very beautiful poem. It is mutual: an urge to write met with an urge to read - a reciprocated love. Best Wishes. Susie.
This is well expressed, Mary...and sounds exactly like you. Raynette

~easy Does It~

We walk up to the building
but don't know what to say.
It seems warm and familiar...
the sign just reads ''AA''.

~with These Hands~

With these hands
I've held you when you were feeling low.
Hand in hand
I'll walk with you wherever you may go.

~the Dandelions Were Listening~

I never did the

He loves me'' game
with flowers.

~i Write These Words For You~

If you could heal a thousand souls
with the words you write today
would you put your pen to test?
Would you know just what to say?

~you'Re Heavy On My Mind~

It's silent
except for the buzzing
of the flourescent lights
in this deserted classroom.

~should I Look For God Or Should He Look For Me? ~

Should I look for God
or should he look for me?
It seems I need the answers
but it's hard for me to see.
