Photography by Chris Galford


He’ll leave a few words behind
Because no one listened before
He’ll make sure you see him
Because no one saw him before
He’ll wander somewhere else tonight
To a wall he’s not seen before.

    Really like your poem; especially the “because” and “before” repetitions—creates an effect of having good reason to keep looking over one’s shoulder, which fits the subject very well.

    To be seen, all we ask for. I can so relate. I really like the simple yet deep message.

    The use of refrain words suits the length of this perfectly. A real favorite of mine this week…such great poetry! ~ Rose

    I favor the short pieces which leave an impact.. this is one of those poems..

    I also read this as the tagger as well as the art itself..
    well done 🙂

      Thank you, lynne, for that observation.. really wish I could say I did that one on purpose, but I’m pleased with that interpretation!

    this is wonderful.

    Your message is so much deeper than the few words you have written. To be noticed for words and photos we post on a wall (real and virtual ), to get through the noise and chaos— Love it.

  7. Maybe that is the same reason I wirite. Very interesting. Enjoyed the poem very much!!

      Interesting to consider this question personally… I hadn’t done that. Appreciate your feedback! Thank you.

    lovely. i can truly feel his need to be heard, seen and felt. while he makes his mark under cover of night, it’s when the sun rises that he will finally be seen…and while i know very little about Icarus (only what i have read in the poems which chose to use this image)…the parallel is quite poetic.

Thank you for your comments, much appreciated!!
