One Waits For A Poem One Cannot Write - Poem by Shalom Freedman


One waits for a poem one cannot write-
And writes a poem one does not want to-
And dreams them both with longing for something else.
And writes and writes
Poem after poem
Until one does not know
Where the poem is,
And whether one is a poet at all.

    of course you are a poet..
    i adore these lines so much..
    i dare to say you were so close to the essence of POETRY..
    you could notify what some of poets pass through..
    please, NEVER stop writing & let me know about your new piece! !
