When A Poet Weeps


When a Poet weeps
Words of passion lay dormant
The heart's connection to the pen is severed
Words swirl within the heart and mind, retained momentarily
Inspiration subsides

When a Poet weeps
Words come and go like lovers
Ideas quickly deleted like cell phone numbers
Of past loves
A Poet can write the hurt
But can't right the hurt

When a Poet weeps
Keyboards are black holes with
Endless potential
Unreachable
Bottomless

When a Poet weeps
The pen is putty
Ink and tears form black clouds
Upon personalized stationary
One name scratched out

When a Poet weeps
Poems are categorized
Me
Her
We
Us
Alone again
Never again

When a Poet weeps
The writings of others are read
Their triumphs over tribulations
Provide strength and encouragement

Resurrected words of reassurance manifest
The weeping Poet can now be used

When another Poet weeps

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
