It was the adoration you loved most

Filling some vacancy in your soul

Until you somehow lost control

Venom now spewed in every post


What you see as grand gifted art

The organic and petulant reverie

Reflecting only that which you see

Clearly seen in the falling apart


God forbid we ever be revised

In the journey to masterpiece

Polish is not needed in the least

If perfection has been surmised


I did not want to walk away

But the hate that filled your words

Unwarranted and a bit absurd

Made it that I could not stay


The judgements you have made

About the β€˜why’ of things past

Sunk in so lightening fast

But never made the grade


Apologies will mean nothing

When you have decided intent

Was evil and surely meant

Some harm to you to bring


But you won’t see it differently

And I cannot change your view

And all the projections from you

Are not seen on the screen of me

  1. That spoke loudly and clearly to me! Excellent!

  2. Your poetries are such an amazing read. I like the flow, it just takes me into a different dimension along with it, best part is it has a variety. It’s always a pleasure read Brad. Thanks for sharing 😊

      Thank you kindly, Vinayak! Those words mean so much coming from such a talented artist as yourself. 😊

      • To be honest I am just learning Brad. This platform gives me an opportunity to write, express my thoughts and read amazing work like yours.

      • Brad Osborne says:

        That may be true, V, as we are all still learning and growing our craft. But your works are not those of a beginner. They are a powerful voice, crafted into beautiful words, and shared openly. Your success is certainly obvious, even if you feel it is unwarranted.

      • Thanks Brad, I never expected such kind responses from you or any of my readers. This only keeps me motivated to deliver my best to myself and my audience. Thank you for your best wishes πŸ˜ŠπŸ™

    loved the closing phrase “the screen of me”; also, that image brought back a lot of bad memories πŸ™‚
