I Wrote Too Many Poems - Poem by Shalom Freedman


I wrote too many poems
I forgot too many
I did not distinguish which important
And which not-
I could not say which were only play,
And which the heart of what I needed to say-
I wrote too many poems
And now unable to read them all
I continue writing new ones,
As if the old ones did not exist-
As if whatever I write
Is for the moment of its writing only
And all the rest
Only a dream lost long ago-

    Shalom Freedman as long as they were your dreams, they visited you, perhaps made love to you, or faught with you, kissed you or bit you, had a interesting conversation or barked at you, as long as they were you, you lived. (Report) Reply
