Poem: Misunderstandings

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"Misunderstandings" is a poem about how she wishes she could make him understand her thoughts.

Showing him how actions speak louder than words.

A chance to make him realize everything in the wheel of life has a purpose.

If love is not embraced it will eventually become wobbly and crash, turning into a nightmare.

"Bon Jovi - Misunderstood"

Misunderstandings

She wishes her thoughts

could find the expression

to help him understand

those deep feelings,

she hides beneath every breath.


To everything there is a purpose,

a reason behind each moment,

where actions speak louder than words,

where love is not concealed

but embraced in every facet.


Within that circle

a wheel becomes unbalanced,

making it wobbly

as it travels down the path,

crashing along the edges of a stone wall,

creating the image of a nightmare.

Understanding,

as we

understand it, is

Misunderstanding.
