I Am a Song

I put this up originally for a bit of fun.  I have never tried poetry before and it was written as a reaction to my ignorance!  However, I received such useful and constructive feedback from Nina and Paul that I wanted to give it some proper attention.  So here is my version 2 after some taking advice.  
As fun as it was, I am no poet and poetry is still shrouded in mystery for me even if the mists have been cleared a little for me by others!
Thank you Nina and Paul!


I don’t understand poetry
The words seem to swim in front of me
I’m swept away by a stream of letters
Doubling up and doubling back
Leaving me lost and lonely
I am left feeling stupid


I don’t understand poetry.
