Got A Secret?

I just read about and then visited a very disturbing blog:

http://www.postsceret.blogspot.com

The guy that runs it receives post cards from people with confessions of their secret thoughts, feelings, wishes etc. Sadly most of the people who send things in seem to be very depressed and disturbed. Some of the things they’ve written are just horrible to read, and since it’s on a post card it’s so short that you’ve read the horrible part before you even knew it was coming, and then you’re stuck with it in your head. It’s hard to stop reading them once you’ve started. I’m not a poetry kind of guy, but I know some of you who read my stuff are. Why don’t you send in some happy postcard secrets to brighten that site up.

  1. I looooooooooooooooooooove this site. I was introduced to it about 6 months ago. It’s just amazing.

  2. I am a poet and did find the site about a month ago. However, it also disturbs me. There is no place to comment (which is the blogsite owner’s perrogative), but I feel so for the folks who send in those heartwrenching cards. Like you said, the art and words make lasting impressions.

  3. I hear what you’re saying. On the other hand, I haven’t seen the site. Hmm. Might go look at it now…But generally, there’s some kinda scary stuff out there. Nothing really shocks me, it just makes me feel a bit sorry for people.
