Numb Poems: 56 / 500

A Poet To Be

Rating: 4.1

A poet I claim not to be,
For words are never there.
In all the years I've tried to write,
I have no words to share.

I sit and think but nothing comes,
No inspiration here.
I want to write of anything,
But still no words I fear.

I read the works of other poets,
I wish I were like them.
How do they write such beautiful lines,
A poet, I'm not him.

I try to write from the heart,
From deep within my soul.
I try to write of the love I have,
But cannot reach my goal.

But why I ask, why can't I write,
Of love so pure and true.
Why can't I write about her eyes,
A mix of green and blue.

I want to write about her smile,
It brightens up my day.
I try to think of anything,
But words I cannot say.

I wish I knew how to write,
A poem with such bliss.
I wish I knew how to describe,
Her soft but tender kiss.

I cannot even begin to write,
How she holds me tight.
How her arms around me,
Makes everything just right.

A poet does not have to think,
The words flow right out.
When I sit and try to write,
I want to scream and shout.

I mean come on, how hard can it be,
To write about her hair.
Such long beautiful natural blonde,
That flows in the air.

I try to write about her laugh,
The words will not fly.
Time passes and finally,
I say it's soft and high.

It's been an hour and a half,
I'm here on verse twelve.
I had to go to Rhymezone,
To find out the rhyme is shelve.

A poet does not do that,
Go online to find a rhyme.
A poet has it in his head,
And can write at any time.

But a poet I am not,
For I cannot write of love.
How the girl I am with,
Is an angel from up above.

How I love her with all my heart,
And want to spend my life with her.
How her love for me is more,
Than I can ever be for sure.

As I draw near the end,
My mind is not so numb.
I realize I've just written of love,
A poet I have become.

A poet you trully are. It's not always that poets and writers have it all inside their heads. I, too, use the internet for help. To use it for a word to put inside my novel or a poem - so it seems I look like I'm at least smart, to rhyme a word, to find the meaning of a word. And even though I am a young writer, I am a good one, to the extent of what I think I am. But Adam, you are a true poet. Your lines are as beautiful as a butterflies wings. As beautiful as the crystal like snowflakes on the ground in winter. You, are magnificent.

This poem is a wonderful poem and i wish i had such talent like yours. It takes me forever to think of rhymes and a poem can take me up to a week to write and they aren't that good. This poem reminds me of myself when I'm sitting at my desk trying to write :) it gave me much inspiration though!

You've described the indescribable man! The 'online' part kind of stands out though.
