I didn't know
where inspiration went
nor why it absconded!
My desire to write
eloped with my imaginative drive.

A choking crowd,
ideas stayed locked
in my small head
and I didn't know 
how to ease them out.

    Jide, What a clever poem! "My desire to write eloped with my imaginative drive" is something to which all poets can relate. You have a gift to share! I'm looking forward to reading more of your work, Carolyn

    Ouch...been there, Jide, it happens to me when other things try to jump into the forefront. Would be fun to knock the others to the side, but your "desires" and "ideas" will come back into focus...for they are never far off. Another well delivered piece! Best to you..Mikki
