The Writer - Poem by Adam M. Snow

In a sea of words,
where writers drown.
Lost in their world's
insanity; their own
blood's their ink.
Time has no limits
being lost in thoughts;
a blank mind's their demise.

    Nicely done, my favorite lines are:

    Time has no limits
    being lost in thoughts;
    a blank mind's their demise.

    Unfortunately for me time still has limits, but when writing I definitely feel like this. (Report) Reply

    Your talent lies in the first draft of this poem. The apostrophe added to 'worlds' changed the meaning of the poem and turned it into a more readily understandable but far less powerful poem. 'Worlds' complemented 'insanity', yet showing the sanity within. The new ending is an afterthought. Sorry to be critical, but I felt I needed to balance the advice you've received from others. Trust your own instincts. P.S. There was a famous mathematician once who was famous for making 'mistakes' in a good way. Through his 'mistakes' discoveries in mathematics occurred. Others tried to make 'mistakes' like him but found that it was very difficult to make the 'right mistakes'. Best of luck (Report) Reply
