Poetry on My Poetry

Over the years emotions became my muse
Dealing with Wayne’s death was my mother’s bequeath
Putting a knack for writing poems to good use
I found light following these shadows of death
 “Mother’s Empty Room” was the first poem I wrote
Looking back I see a lot of cliché quotes
Word’s shedding pain flowing from my finger tips
Now I’m able to write a few silly quips

Written 01/12/13
For Russel’s “Poetry about Poetry” members contest

Form: Rispetto, with  ababccdd rhyme, 8 lines with 11 syllables each line.
