A Poet's Diary Excerpt 1

There has been many a time when I
Lamented the silence of my heart
Circumscribed in a cold attic
The words I sporadically spewed forth
Maddened, sickened and depressed me
I swore never to write again
I swore to remain forever silent
I wanted desperately to remain in quietude
Like a foetus in its mother’s womb
But each time I was drawn back
Each time I was driven madly into
Splattering on the pages of my diary
My erratic and sometimes incoherent thought
I was trapped in bewildering verbiage
From where there was no way out

    Anguish and passion drive this personal revelation about the writer's art, not as a choice, but as a compulsion. I'm sure all for those for whom words drive their lives will identify with this fine poem which views the process of written expression as a maze from which there is no way out. love, Allie xxxxxxxxxx (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
