Listen to poem:
With my pen poised- I begin to write you a poem, Oh, words and thoughts are whirling in my head; And from deep, deep WITHIN the floodgate is open, The blood drips and the bleeding words spread; With my pen poised- I begin to write you a poem. All my saddest, emotions and sorrows- I give to you, Oh, please will your carry my burden for awhile; I am in THAT cemetery walking under a sky so blue, Then, I am a girl standing alone in a church aisle; All my saddest, emotions and sorrows- I give to you. My beloved- are just names engraved in cold stone, Oh, mom I wish you were here to hug this girl; Will you be my FRIEND and hold my hand as I moan, And from this sorrow beauty will whirl and twirl; My beloved- are just names engraved in cold stone. And I write over and over again- my dreadful pain, Oh, the sorrow and grief is etched in words I write; I put my poem in a CONTEST and wait to be slain, But sometimes, with great joy, I see a bright light; And I write over and over again- my dreadful pain. When I am held high in the light- I know pride, Oh, and when my words are lost, I weep alone; The bleeding stops and into SOLITUDE again I glide, And I let my grief rest and the pain has flown; When I am held high in the light- I know pride. ___________________________________ May 27, 2016 Poetry/Rhyme/I begin to write- Five Words Copyright Protected, ID 16-795-445-0 All Rights Reserved.

You did have some strange words to work with, BW. But your attempt was noble and came out with a great personal poem in the end. Some lines that intrigued me: "I put my poem in a contest and wait to be slain," "When I am held in the light- I know pride," ... I think others can relate to these sincere and honest lines. Thanks for the read. Check out my blog, if you ever get the chance, and tell me about your poem :)

This is just excellent! I'm so proud of you that you could read it aloud. I am not that brave (I don't imagine). You did such a lovely job, this is a 7.

Some say that we lose strength in writing - in this poem - you have proven the contrary. The light you seek represents the need of all artists. Well done - Jesse
