I am an iceberg,
glistening in the sun.
On the surface,
passing ships sojourn.
Beneath the waves,
my enormity is veiled.
mind your frailty.
Through the swells,
a mountain swims.
This life uncertain,
frozen in time.
A glacial ghost,
adrift in splendor.
My shimmering disguise,
triumphant once more.
the horizon summons.
Dark secrets hidden,
shivering beneath me.
the Solipsist Soliloquist.
for not thinking 'Oh f*ck HEs not attempting to pen another poem!' and racing off to find something more interesting, informative, exhorting, or comforting.
We are allowed to write about whatever and
Icebergs are cool.
My thought du jour is... people are like ICEBERGS.
Many of us only expose a small percentage, maybe 10%?,
of ourselves to others,
if you get my drift?
Only a handful of people are ever allowed to get below the surface to discover the REAL YOU..
therefore most of us never get to 'see enough' of other people to really understand them.
We prefer to stay in the boat and rarely jump overboard to get a good look.
Perhaps you float a little higher and like to expose more of yourself..say 50%...
Or maybe you are a Tigger type extrovert, shamelessly bobbing around with
80% of your MASS right out in the open Woo Hoo!
Do you eschew social intercourse with other humans in the real world but do a flip flop on the Blogosphere and bare your soul?
Maybe you enjoy telling people to 'BELOW ME!' on a regular basis.
If you do chances are that you enjoy being enigmatic and mysterious.
You put a lot of thought and effort into it...that's cool..whatever floats yer boat..
BUT do you act that way because you think that most people are just self absorbed unforgiving snoops who would be horrified if they knew what you were hiding?...
Other folks would obviously have a better understanding of what we are all about if they could see the whole picture? But at what cost?
How much of yourself do you expose on the blogosphere
compared to the real world?
