Poetic Musing

feed me words today  
I pray to the Gods
believe it or not
to gift me with something
anything to write about
I call to the spirits
to use me as channel
sometimes it's tepid water
that springs from this well
others beautiful vistas
to lose yourself in
I'm not feeling good
my benzos
leave me cold
by dawn's light
with a rawness you can't imagine
I want to visit that dream place
right now that door is locked to me
I miss your poetic voices today
that always distract me
in times of pain
& it is bloody hell
I find my mind wandering
back to the days I first started
writing my poetry here
I was a beginner
there were so many poets
I idolized as gods
they kicked my ass
I requested honest critique
& let me tell you I got it
at first angered  
by their thoughts
then resignation
with knowledge they were right
made me want to get better
at this poetry thing
some of them have left
to go on to other things
I miss them  
they will always be  
what I strive to be
some have stayed
& continue to challenge me
to learn this art
I love you Poets
you are my greatest anxiety med
