The Meeting Place of Poets

Your opinions make me feel welcome
Your inspiration keeps me going
Going like the Energizer bunny
Going like a train on a high speed chase
Chase with a passion
Chase for the sake of it
It is with love and kindness you share
It is the simple knowledge that you care
Care for what I say
Care with a dripping honesty
Honesty that speaks volumes
Honesty that helps me improve
Improve steadily
Improve gracefully
Gracefully I take it all in
Gracefully tasting
Tasting the sweetest triumph
Tasting the most bitter pill
Pill that fills me
Pill that becomes obsession
Obsession that swallows whole
Obsession over little things
Things are but possessions
Thing can't compare to the human thought
Thought that turns into action
Thought counts, but useless without motivation
Motivation is hard to find, but
Motivation is your specialty
Specialty, sweeter that grandma's cookies
Specialty to die for!
For morning when my day begins
For late at night to calm the stress
Stress of the constant tug-a-war
Stress that you my friends can relieve
Relieve like ice on a hot summers day
Relieve like spray to keep mosquitoes away
Away on opalescent wings
Away my worries fly
Fly to the top I will!
Fly beside me, for you seek the same place
Place where jigsaw puzzles reset themselves
Place where poet exchange greeting cards
Cards in flowery pink and violet
Cards in onix and dreary gray
Gray seems bland I know, but
Gray is black and white, the marriage of war and peace
Peace isn't easy to find,
Peace resides here I believe

NOTE: This poetry form actually does have a name. It's called a Blitz. However it wasn't in the list of writing forms on the Soup.
