in a mind life goes on

you died long ago;
 yet i still feel your breath
brush against me
like pen on paper
hard-pressed
searching a mind
for answers
unfound

i try to stay 
inside the lines
they are everywhere
i turn 
and I turn
wrist upward
and feel you
like a knife
against flesh
full force

it drains me
and i die
within each poem
born

and yet
somehow
you live

    Writing is certainly very draining... I felt that wisp of a knife in some of my writing... You have expressed that feeling very well.. :)

    Thank you so much Linda...I just told a co-worker today, when she said her son writes poetry that is often dark and said, I told her, it's a good therapy, sometimes releases those emotions helps bring on a smile...I said it doesn't mean he is depressed...she said now I get it... have a great day! Hugs

    Brilliant Sandra...One of the most origional and unique descriptions of what writing is all about that I have seen... And PLEASE don't stay inside those lines! - Tim

    Thanks Tim....sometimes I try and make my muse write pretty but she goes in her own direction and this kind of stuff spills out...I don't think I could stay inside the lines if I wanted too....hugs :)
