I Come Back To The Poems


I COME BACK TO THE POEMS

I come back to the poems
And I restore my soul-
Without the poems
I do not know who I am-
Without the poems
I somehow cease to exist-

I come back to the poems
And I restore my soul
And I momentarily forget
All the questions and doubts
That made me lose the poems-

The poems are back
I am back
Life has hope again
And all the meaninglessness
And all the criticism
Are for a time at rest
I come back to the poems
And here I am- alive again
