I Feel Like A Worn Out Boxer - Poem by Dominic Windram

Lately, I have poured all my energy
Into creating reams of poetry.
I feel like a boxer: desperately
Flagging on the ropes and almost beaten
Into submission by the writing gremlins:
Who want to break my flow.Now I'm patiently
Waiting for a second wind, so that I
Can, at last, deliver the fatal blow!

    Is there a fatal blow in poetry. Maybe, if you knock yourself out. (Report)Reply

    Thanks Robert...ha, ha...I was thinking more of conquering the gremlins of writer's block, disenchantment with the writing process etc...wanting to achieve an effective result via one's, long hard efforts etc. Nevertheless, I can see how you might have interpreted it. I think I now need to take a well earned break!
