The Poet

Turning
           twisting torment
           his soul
erupts
          upon his page-
          Melancholic
thoughts
           drip
           drip
endless 
tedium
           into the reader's
           eye-
obtuse,
remote
           emotions
           stagnate
as still waters
stifle life
             squeeze
             vitality
to
death

    One that we all can relate to at some point or other in our short lives, Brian. I always enjoy how you do your line breaks. Thanks for my placement in your recent contest.

    Ah the tortured soul of the melancholic poet laid bare before our eyes. What poet can not relate. Very well written Brian.
