I wish I was a poet

I wish I was a poet a surgeon of verse many would know it how do they express the sublime with graceful words that don't even rhyme it's amazing how they do it I marvel at the beauty of a poem's spirit maybe I could even write a poem should it be jagged or should I flow it I don't know I'm trying to think I'm getting closer I'm on the brink here it goes, it may be lame but I write this poem just the same the words aren't graceful, yes I know it I'm still wishing I was a poet

Coming way back here to one of your first poems to let you know that you ARE a poet who has indeed proved yourself here. I was noticing some favorite poets of mine that are not even on my favorite poet list yet for some reason. I have been neglectful and I am rectifying that right now! Luv, Andrea

A very clever take on the struggles of poetry making... it evokes emotion and that is what a fine poet does... :)

Joseph, was this one of your first poems? I used to write this way, saying how I wished to be a true poet. Hopefully I can say I am now. and I know you can certainly say the same about yourself! Just keep writing more and more and more. All the practice sure does pay off, don't you think?

Expressing thoughts within a verse. A poet never will reherse. They just keep writing till it comes out write. Sometimes it comes quickly, sometimes it takes all night.
