Why Does A Poem/ Not Want To Begin


WHY DOES A POEM /NOT WANT TO BEGIN

Why does a poem
Not want to begin?
Why does Silence say
It should be all and all?

Why against this
Must ‘Will’ and ‘Ambition’ come?
And force lines
As these lines forced now?

Because I am a lonely man
Who has nothing to do with himself?

But write poems
Which he dreams
Someone someday
Will read.

    I feel the same way sometimes. (like when i wrote a poem called ' A poem a day keeps the fuzzes away'...... if time permits check it out) , but i don't believe that we write poems because of any other reasons except that we are addicted to poetry, and we love it and hate it, like any other addiction.............

Far south the lift,
