Why is it that only poets can understand poetry?

I am sure I cannot be the only one who has gotten that queer look from someone who has just read your work (even though you pretend to protest but let them read anyway). There you wait, with baited breath for some pure acknowledgement, a flicker of light of understanding only to find that queer look and some totally off base comment that summarizes nothing you had hoped for.
How sad and disappointing that you pour yourself into words, hoping that those around you can see the beauty or the message, only to find they don't.
All that we see or seem, is but a dream within a dream....
Edgar Allen Poe
