Empathize Pains and Reflect Joys


My first was only five lines in a pathetic grammar
Scribbled on my mathematic scrap paper
Teacher was explaining about cosinus,
My brain was given a gentle pat by a muse

That muse had a great heart
She taught me to write about love I hadn’t fallen in
She encouraged me to spill some pain when my heart was smiling
From that on we’re never apart

I’ve lived so many lives in my poems
I’ve drowned myself in the deepest ocean to haul the blackest rhyme
I’ve levitated myself to haul sweet words on a colorful cloud
I’ve written fiction lives nothing sweeter than lime
I’ve stacked stories in my mind where words shout out loud

So when you ask me how poetry has become me?
When I know I can empathize pains and reflect joys, that’s how

    I have this feeling too Dinda, my poetry reflects the person I am the day I write. Nice to read and know others feel the same way. Love, Lizzie

    I think this is just awesome! Best wishes for Michael's Contest. I'm very busy and can't find my muse right now, LOL. But this is a winner in my book already, Dinda! Always, Annalise

    - .... There are many feelings in a poem .... can be difficult to express themselves. - Sad and happy memories come up - tears and smiles. - Happiness and sorrow. - Dinda you are a talented poet, I like your poems a lot - you give of yourself. - Have a nice weekend. - oxox / / Anne-Lise :)

    "To spill some pain when my heart was smiling"... I absolutely loved this line! I remember a really sunny day, I was very happy and inspired to write something... Yet what I ended up writing was incredibly sad, very much conflicting with my cheery mood... In wondering if you felt the same way on some of your poems? Letting go a different side of yourself you didn't even know was there... Stunning work as usual! I'm adding you to my favorite poets list...
