Poetry is not my language at all. When trying to read it my mind just starts drifting and I start thinking about other things. It's not that i don't respect the art, I do. But it is like Greek to me and I have a hard time appreciating it and even finding it interesting at all.

So of course it is terrible when friends show me their work and ask my opinion. What am I supposed to say?

And even worse when the poem is actually dedicated to me! Oh my god... Someone wrote me this huge thing with a billion verses the other day and I admit I couldn't even read half of it. I feel bad because people are being inspired and spending time and energy on this and I'm not able to appreciate it :/

Why don't you just tell him exactly what you wrote above?
When someone sends you 24 red roses and you don't like roses at all (maybe you don't even like the smell...) what would you do? Maybe you tell him that you appreciate the gift, but that you don't like roses, so he will know you better. And the next time maybe he sends you 25 oranges... :)

Well I don't really think it's the same as your rose example, but I see what you mean I suppose :)

Yeah you should tell him.

BTW are you really going to Tokyo, as your previous post might have hinted? Or does it have another meaning?

You can still appreciate the thought behind it without understanding the complete meaning of the poem. Besides I'm sure the inspiration that you give them to write and express themselves is more than enough of a thanks
