A Poem Sneaks Into The Room

Rating: 5.0

A poem comes abruptly – A poem
Sneaks into the room and hides behind the chair
Or the couch, or the curtain
And then pounces through the air
Into the Mind
Chokes and licks the Heart
At the strangest of times
It seduces me…and I will try, sometimes
To resist…but then I usually comply
– I know what it wants <><><>

I liked your poem, how it took on a life of its own. The truth in the writing. Great job!

You're right, they're like insistent children, or puppies that want to play!

Oh yeah! I know that demon well were you stroll up the road and it grows as each step is taken and you have nought but one (as in my case) withered mind to rely on. You repeat repeat repeat then sit down and you e lost the middle strength ahhh I know this so well My friend a great poet would love this I think. May I send it to her. She has obscure taste quite often and I think it may tickle her poet taste buds. Loved it. Your finest piece as read by me so far. Bravo dear poet. Karen

This is great - love that image of the crawling words. I wish poems came to me unprompted, but they don't (probably something to do with age and relative percentages of grey and white matter) .
