Of late
Perspiring to be:

Working on words
Stand on mark to
Get set
And gooooooo…
Words are
I find
Grotesque foe! !

Dear readers
Again I regret
Unless you surrogate
Can’t be a Poet

So true gal! We are all seeking to become poets, but poetry comes straight from the heart and onto the paper!

Game ain't... ;) ... over yet madam! The queen surely protects her king? Or does the king takes his queen to sacrifice to get out of checkmate? Only the poet knows...muwahahaha! ;) Great sequel Niv...thanks for the encore!

You have brought out the difference between poetry and philosophy in this poem. The word Surrogate, I can see is an imagery. Philosophy does not view truth as conception but as inevitable. In poetry any idea however obvious or profound has to conceived in a new light. Very insightful poem! I really enjoyed it. Short and powerful in impact. Effort has its place in life but at some point inspiration takes over. Thanks for sharing.10/10

I agree with you. Art is an in between, (among) thing flow, what exactly did you mean by surrogate? Hope I understood.

An interesting little ditty indeed, Niv, reading through your comments on this piece (and there are a few) looks like you have sparked a very friendly debate on what may or may not be poetry and who might or might not be a poet, great post and super thread; -) BG
