If I don't write, I'm doomed to die and lie beneath a wordless sky A silent corpse, unseen, unheard alive yet dead- is that absurd? If rhymes don't paint a rainbow hue and lines don't tempt with taste of dew If words can't clothe just what I feel this thing called life must not be real Without a dose of poetry what will become of you and me? Just members of the walking dead, we march each one with empty head A lifeless, joyless, hopeless mass who try to make the hours pass Without the ecstasy of rhyme to be alive is just a crime For life without the words I write is dull and drear, like starless night Like endless, tortured misery is life without my poetry Eileen Manassian

Many a poet can relate with this fine piece of poetry, Eileen, including myself, except I feel like this about being creative in general, particularly art, writing/poetry, and music. Congrats on being chosen POTD. All the best to you. :) ~ Artsie

Excellent poem Eileen. If we, as poets, dont or cant write then that could be the "death" of us. Congrats on POTD. Oliver
