I Am Not A Poet Anymore

Rating: 4.9
Birds do not sing to me now...
Breeze does not whisper.....
No cloud cuddles me… Sun does not smile
Selene do not dress me in darkness,
Like Endymion, to adore
Melancholy is no bliss to me now
I am not a poet anymore....


I no longer dance with rain
Dewdrops do not quench my thirst
I could not talk to the flower now
That bloomed in all its mirth
Sea makes no sound to me
As it meet the shore
Sky does not take me in its arm
And mountains do not lure


Strange faces!
I could not taste their laughter
Nor I smell their affection
I do not hear them smile
Their tears I do not gather
I could not feel their breath
Their eyes do not talk
There is no song in heart beat
Their lips do not mock


There is no warmth in darkness
Its affection I do not feel
Inured to common din now
To me silence is no longer pure
Melancholy is no bliss to me now
I am not a poet anymore....

Simple English sentence. (subject, verb, object of verb.) * (noun/verb/noun) in that order. Looking another way,1st person " I" that's subject. Verbs: action/ Objects of are things Great poem by the way. But it need wok of the English. It must sound great in the native language of your country. The translation needs work even in the use of poetic devices as forms of figurative use of language to turn the phrasing, . a poet friend RH Peat

The writer's block and the underlying frustration so wonderfully poeticised.

Beautiful creation fueled by frustration! I know exactly what state you were in when you penned down this poem. I have experienced it too. Sometimes we feel that we are just surviving! I feel that the most befitting title for this poem is 'I am not myself anymore.' By now I think that you must have got over it. Come what might never give up your beautiful craft and whatever you feel about yourself, never destroy your poetic creations. They are a masterpiece. I am saying this because I have seen most artists destroying their creations doubting their worthiness. Let me repeat it once more... You are a blessed poet. A sweet 10.

YOU ARE AN INBORN POET. I DEDICATE IT TO YOUR POETIC QUALITY: YOU ARE THE POET OF POETS YOU REMEMBER ME JOHN KEATS YOUR FRUSTATION MAKES YOU GENIUS YOU ARE A TRUE POET TO US. YOU ARE NOT THE JUDGE OF YOURSELF ONE CAN'T PROPERLY JUDGE ONESELF. YOU ARE THE BUDDING POET WITH QUALITY WE BOW DOWN HEAD WITH DIGNITY. YOU WRITE POEM AT THE CORE OF YOUR HEART, YOUR POEM ENSLAVES OUR HEART.
