Poetry

A poem is just a rhyming verse
That sometimes carries a hidden curse
Cos of night while you try to sleep
Into your mind, rhymes and words do creep

Lying in bed so quietly
Words fall into place silently
Like clothes in a dryer spinning around and around
The minds’ abuzz but there is no sound

Poetry is an expression
Great therapy for depression
As thoughts transfer from mind to paper
Then disappear from your thoughts like an invisible vapour

I like to write my feelings down
As all my thoughts could make me drown
I believe the words that I share
Relieve my soul and allow me air.

    Well stated Juanita! True words these! Sometimes words just flow into your head and refuse to leave until you've put them down - never mind the time of day or night! That's the poet's life- it requires flexibility.

    I loved the last stanza cause I can relate. I like to write my feelings down but the last two lines describe why I write my poems so thank you for clarifying that for me and I'm sure other poets on Poetry Soup too...

    How true, I need writing almost as much as breathing.
