My Last Poem -of 2012-

The last poem…

Standing against the wall. 
The longest teardrop made its fall. 
Making one final call.
Never will I write about my letters again.

This prison is my pen.
*INK* My enemy~ at the same times my only friend.
*INK* My guardian~ the escort of words into my desires. 
This pen is my prison.

No longer will I let it defend and comfort me.
No longer will I let it sit there and take control of my imagery.
No longer will I share it with you...
These visions have been the birth and death to what is reality.
I have no reason to lie; it is time to set my thoughts free.
And say goodbye…………. 

As I walk alone to the open skies of 2013.

~~The End~~

I sought this out, mainly because for one who is in the midst of learning meter, starting with iambic tetrameter, pentameter and mixed meter, there is this sense of direction where one (me) has to be perfect with this or the poem is not going to work. I left the life of perfectionism long ago, but some vestiges have reared its ugly head. In reading yours (and some I did not comment on) I have found a whole new genre of prosody that does not require perfection.

I liked the concept of going back to 2012, -- am well initiated in time travel, so this was a good moment. Thanks, Thomas

A demarcation line, another year is labled in this scintillating poem. A message fervently told with gifted depth and originality. YF, Gene Bourne.

I was getting worried you were serious... that you weren't writing anymore. Glad I was wrong. I loved the ending line, it seemed very hopeful and full of possibilities. Though it is sad you are walking alone...

Through visions poets feel the reality and at that time thoughts are set free with ink on paper and says goodbye. How excellent the vision is, loved always my friend, bl

Letting things go, not easy to do. Not giving the controll, makes for a stronger you. Setting yourself free, so that you can be, is the way. This, for you, I will pray. B.J. "A" 2
