A troubled Poe

I fear the day that my ink has all dried,
I fear having to feel the tears that I hide,
I fear the battle with my secret pains for I will lose that fight,
For I simply am too weak and I can not cry those tears that I write.
How will I ever explain in a way they can relate?
If I lose my pen, therefore the words I create.
I write my heartbreak with ink in order to show my strife,
Instead of crying on and on forever, then losing my life.
I am afraid of the Pandora's box deep within my soul.
For it cages all the rage, hurt, and emotions that I cannot control.
That bottomless box holds so much, When it gets too full, I simply pick up my pen....
I fight back my pain and I write out all the heart shattering truth, again and again.
I am a troubled spirit, one who prefers to keep it all in....
a troubled "Poe", my only fear is losing the strength to pick up my pen.
I really mourn the day I lose the will to write,
for the demons be set free and I will lose my fight

    Art is subjective.... one cannot say what is bad or good, only what one likes or dislikes. I think some of your lines are a little long-- too many syllables. You could take them and break them down into two. But I do like how a few of them rhyme though. The images that you conjure from your poem with your mighty quill is both fearsome and yet awe-inspiring..."a troubled 'Poe'". I'd be careful, however, everyone knows you're talking about Edgar Allen and not some panda bear in a apron (lol)

    I appreciate your honest opinion and also your visit, I am pleased with your compliment (I think it is a compliment) and I agree with you, beauty lies in each individual's eyes as the way they see it..... I admire Edgar Allen Poe very much, his work was debated as well..... but I got to admit, Po the Panda looks pretty cuddly, Katei

    "for the demons be set free and I will lose my fight" Nice line BUT I hope that the demons will go and give you more courage to write. A very beautiful poem,

    When you write from heart, and not fear, your pen won't ever run dry. That's the whole point of fear, to mislead & sell your self-confidence short. Very catchy title. Terrific read. Always push that pain back. =) Excellent!
