A touch of the Omen in this, a twist behind the simple words
Simple words, yes, but disturbing truth that, I think, eventually occurs to every poet to haunt them like a nagging fear. Thanks Sue for you wise comment!
Poets possess can-openers to people's souls... we need to know how to use them, or what to do when others are vulnerable and have opened to our words.
I agree Gracie, the language of poetry is a powerful tool but what concerns me is that poets are just human beings. One does not have to read too far into Plath, Lowell, Berryman to see that painful truth. Thanks Gracie for your wise and knowing comment!
