This Poet You Call Poe

I fear the whispers feed my mind
They tell me what to say
For me the light is hard to find
I wasn't born this way

I hear and see those things long gone
They help me with my craft
Sometimes I write from dusk 'til dawn
To get the perfect draft

Sorrows stir within my veins
As words begin to bleed
No one tries to heal my pains
So darkness intercedes

A spirit torn without repair
A curse upon this earth
Severed from the things you share
No more than afterbirth

A poet with no will to live
I care not where I go
I've suffered more than I can give
This poet you call Poe

    he was indeed twisted and forlorn. His addiction holds us all. Nicely written. RAY

    Impressive piece, Larry. Well written. Deep. Nice job. (Note - "sorrows" is mispelled) Best to you and yours. Ralph
