The Thread Moved Downward

Rhyming in prose, vocabulary flexed.
I pour my soul into a literary text,
I post on this forum, a poets test,
The thread moves down; the poet is vexed.

Does no one see my rhyming perfection?
The careful words I wrote, inviting reflection?
Eagerly awaiting the crowds affection.
The thread moves downward; sad rejection.

“Oh Dear God!, What does it take?”
To move the masses for a comment to make!
Perhaps they are sleeping? No longer awake?
Or is my masterpiece simply a fake?

Growing old is Mandatory; Growing Up is Optional

*exalt* Simply for putting into words what so many of us often feel. Heh, my karma at TPS has been stalled for months now, too. :pout:
