You make me a poet!


Thoughts
Wavering and distressing.
Pain
Piercing and jabbing.
Emotions
Supple and vulnerable.


All of them find refuge
In my outpouring poetry;
I soak my dry words
In the clammy pool of my musings 
A poem is born
And I feel liberated. 


Our love
Soulful and ageless.
Our separation
Sour and Stinging.
Our story
Eternal and unforgettable.


You are there
In every verse that I write;
As muse or as memory,
It's you who make me a poet.
Feeling you closely again
Is the joy of writing poetry.

  6. This is a wonderful response to the prompt - what would we do with all those emotions, if we didnt have a pen and a page? So well expressed.

    1. Exactly, Sherry. I would have gone insane, if I wouldn't have with me, a pen and paper to express them. Thanks a ton :)

  13. Indeed, what would we do with our emotions if it were not for poetry? And, indeed, when a poem is born it is such a liberating feeling.....like giving birth.
