Image for the poem poetry


jilted thoughts scream for attention
in the hall of ideas they make themselves known
clamoring to be written
mocking if you don't write it someone else will

so I take my muse very seriously
kooky or not I pick up my pen
writing what comes bursting forth
sometimes channeling the immortal
other times nothing much but I wait and see
amazed, others are on my wavelength
it's a beautiful connection us poets share

speaking a language only we know
metaphors deciphered each with a different interpretation
giving even the writer themselves new perspective
it is a unique gift not to squander

sometimes I worry if I seem self important
I wonder why I write many times personal things
until I reach a soul and I know I did the right thing

Author's Note
I usually don't like writing about writing but this is what came to my mind...
All writing remains the property of the author. Don't use it for any purpose without their permission.
