Contradictionary

I feel that I've not done, Everything that I should do. I've not found the sun, Nor what rain, May have to prove. Every word is dry, With a fighting attitude, Trying to deny, What I'd truly say to you. I've tried to be the kind, To write, And please your very eyes. Yet there comes a time, When my muse, Runs and hides. Nay! This game of pain, Is not what I ordain. Peace will be sustained, On the day, I write again.

Omg! I stopped by to visit after the comment you left on my poem. The first one I opened, happened to be this work of art! Ironically, I just enjoyed the flow of the words at first, not knowing exactly what you were saying. After I read the first comment, I had to read it again. Not only is this poem a masterpiece, but I cannot express to you how strongly I battle with this very thing! It is so frustrating when I write out a long beautiful poem and reader's comments prove this very delima!

Sometimes we poets have to write for ourselves because not everyone may understand our words. And then there is that thing called muse.....it definitely has a mind of its own. Good day J.T.
