    poetry is so revealing
    yet all the time still concealing
    what really is the truth that lies
    in the heart of those that scribe
    never good at getting meaning
    between the lines of what i'm reading
    though i struggle trying to see
    what others choose to share with me
    i'm often left in much surprise
    because their wisdom i can't surmise
    even when it seems quite plain
    i take the chance assume one thing
    only to find i got it wrong
    can't read the words gotta feel the song
    and then when i feel the song
    it is the words i should have focused on
    add to this the many styles
    the many lines of each scribe's vibe
    it's easier to understand
    why i'm slow to comprehend
    i'm learning now it isn't meant
    for me to grasp each one's intent
    don't have to know what's between the lines
    of every poem, of every rhyme
    all i know is you shared with me
    a part of you so graciously

    I "third" that!

    don't have to know what's between the lines
    of every poem, of every rhyme
    all i know is you shared with me

    yes, i agree but not just of the written words, but in the lives of other and things around me, that in itself is also poetry.
