Poetry - Poem by Sasafrass Lovejoy

Writing poems is cheaper
than getting therapy.
And when I finish a new poem
my soul feels rather free.

Creative juices flow,
my mind releases all,
I strive to put into real words
emotions I recall.

And sometimes as I’m writing,
the poem takes a new twist,
and I can see the humor
that in real-life I missed.

That is why I’m writing,
it’s become my new obsession,
but lest you think I’m crazy,
don’t get the wrong impression.

I hope to change this habit soon,
from writing into moving,
cause this old “bod” is getting large
and weight I must be losing!

    I also write for cheap therapy...sometimes you get so lost in the wrods that you never knew you were feeling that way until you retrace the lines...thanks for sharing on this PH couch. (Report) Reply
