I Drown In Words


I drown in words
Because I cannot swim
In very long poems.

I'm lost in a maze
When the meanings
Hide in vagaries.

I can't see in dark
Uncertainties
Of narratives with no end.

But like a cat
Too dumb to run away
I think with Poetry
I will stay.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.

But if it had to perish twice,
