    Poem Commentary

    A man I see, but can't...

    Rather Be Crazy

    You warn me
    With your awfully silent
    You show it
    In your sick invisible
    I don't listen,
    Though you're loud and clear.
    I don't see,
    Though you sit
    Directly in front of me.
    Your whispers echo
    In the crowded hallways,
    Although you've never said a word.
    Your smile stains
    Every sight I see,
    Although I've never seen your face.
    Something about those unheard words,
    That unseen smile,
    Entices me
    And, yet,
    The mystery frightens me away.
    Maybe someday
    Your voice will be audible;
    Your smile will be visible,
    Although that is not exactly
    Something I hope for.
    I want,
    More, to know
    That I'm not insane.
    I wish to know
    If the smile is just
    A feeling
    (Which is what I hope it to be),
    Or if the silent echoes
    Are possibly your voice
    (Which I pray against).
    Eitehr way,
    I guess the conclusion
    Makes me crazy,
    But I'd rather be crazy
    Than believe you exist.

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

    Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
