My First Five Poems

My First Five Poems
Silhouetted against the backdrop of Central Park, the Black Magic Woman brazenly frolicked in the dark, "Do you know me?” she cryptically asked, steel gray eyes peering from behind a gruesome mask. Agitated and running out of patience and time, she ranted and raved looking anything but sublime. Responding to the summons of the eclipsing mid-day sun, she melted into the mystical tableau that had begun Emerging naked as the day she was born, wearing only sprigs of white Baby’s Breath that adorn her hair, she danced under cover of the darkness at noon, with wild abandonment before falling into a swoon.
Dazedly, I wondered would I be able to recall this story; but with useless pen in hand, only blank pages could I see, as from my mind, she had erased all memories of her and me. She had deliberately stolen my gift of words that day leaving me expressionless with nothing to say. Afflicting me with the accursed spell of writer’s block, all clues were forgotten, as I struggled to unlock, the portal to my creative mind, and then hopefully, unleash my muse to write once again. While her secrets are still buried deep within the dark gloom, perhaps, one night it’ll all return with the eclipse of the moon.
*** Note - The titles of my first 5 poems are in bold above: Writer’s Block; Do you know me; The Darkness at Noon; Patience; and Frolicking in the Dark 09-11-2015

A simply remarkable piece. I'm sure many of us can relate to this, making it even more special. Oh, and I'm sure you'll recover from this slight writer's black.

Hi Andie, unfortunately, I am not a very prolific writer so you have probably read all my poems already:-). It takes me a while before my poor little brains can come up with something new which is worthy of sharing. Lol.

what a strange thing to see and then you wove it into a story of her having cast a spell of writers' block on you. Descriptive, unique and creative!

hi Pandita, I commend you on this most enjoyable piece which you have most creatively constructed from five seemingly unrelated titles and woven into a single comprehensive, captivating story! Well done and a 7, my friend! Good luck in the contest! Kika

Hi Kika, thank you so much for kindly complimenting my work! I agree that this theme was exceptionally challenging because the titles appeared to have no connection; but I tried to make them work together. With much appreciation to you for your high score and support. Pandita
