I Am The Verse Writer

I Am The Verse Writer

I am the verse writer
This I’ve always been
It always will be thus
So much to me it means
Letting all my feelings out
Exposing the joy in me
And all my mystery

I am the verse writer
To write, it is my life
Bringing out the best in me
Exposing all my strife
I love to reach inside of me
Letting my soul spill out
In truth or in doubt

I am the verse writer
I will be till I die
When this shell is empty
And in the earth does lie
My words will go on living
Until they fade away
I guess they will someday

May your pen never run out of ink Peter. So many of your sets I see as song lyrics that need to be recorded somewhere - thank you Peter - Lindsay

Hi Lindsay , Although I don't play anymore, [only the harmonica now and then] I do feel music in my writes. Maybe my grandchildren will do something with them after I kick the bucket. I have thousands of poems in boxes that that just lie around, and four published books so who knows. Thank you for your kind comments, my friend....Peter

I hope your words will go on forever Peter, When I joined soup I thought all poetry rhymed, how wrong was I. I'll always be a rhymer at heart. Enjoyed your verse. Tom

Hi Tom, I have created over twenty styles, all in rhyme, But really I like best of all My rhyming, flowing three stanza poems. I have been writing these since I was a child, and that's the way I love to write. I thank you sincerely for your kind comments. They are appreciated...Mate....Peter

Hi Victor your writing does not need rhyme it is so beautiful. I've written in rhyme and flow since I was just a child' We rhymers are the dinosaurs of the game. we are not popular these days. But I like writing like that. Thank you for your kind comments, my Friend.....peter
