Of Ink

   Partial Paper
 -A poet in heat-

Ink carries its own tale,
When moonshine intoxicates your pen
Bottles of ink fill your mind
Composing symphonies on every line
Drops of passion all over the mask you wear
Nothing compares to black stains and broken nails

This part of you 
"A CAN'T BE REMOVED" tattoo
The tough skin you'll ever live in
Fountain pens of split identities
Who Are You?
Sinking  words like no other
Poisoned ink piercing every rhyme
Inferior poet, making the heart pure
Anger plus anger "GIVE ME MORE!"

You have a desire to paint all day,
Breathing and beating in every way
Toxic lines, from which ink flows
Inhaling images from the world
Deep and cold sorrowed emotions 
True love is always easy to poetize
Dear Poet:  "Ink Never Lies."

Pretty pink acrostic ink when she's nearby
Sugar and salt, Epic taste of reality
Ballads sang under the full moon
Sunny Sonnets, on any rainy day
Ode's of rivers from your past
A dark smile jotting down memory lane
Monologue tears brought under pressure
Loading cartridges of fresh Senryu and Haiku"
Dramatic red runs through your veins when all is done
Unfolding old and new propaganda's
POET: You are my favorite verse in every stanza
((Only this, and nothing more))
Writing is like giving birth

Writing is like giving birth... this is truth and poets know it. I always refer to my poems as my babies, and even my ugly ones I love and don't want to toss out. I love the expansiveness of this poem. It goes wide and deep, and metaphors galore. You are a lovely poet. :)

I am so very very angry, that I failed to imbibe this wine of imperishable eloquence no sooner than now my Sphinx, but I do find huge happiness in the grasp of this beauty in the now, as they say PD., 'better late than never...' oh how sweetly true! Your lips are the truest point of the quill. My ink flows for you : ) J.A.B.

Well ive never experienced childbirth Linda, but the rest i can relate to, our gift, our passion, our curse pours out from a depth that doesnt belong to us alone and truer words were never written, the ink doesnt lie. Bravo Linda, blessings from a big fan

Hi pd! I will have to get back on this next time-- sorry, mind is in a sleepy haze/fuzz-- but wanted to thank you for passing by my poem... I hope you are well-- I am doing ok, thanks. But do pls pray for my country-- we are bracing for a super typhoon, landfall coming this morning, esp in central part of my country-- scary since that part (some islands) just got hit by 7.2 earthquake mid Oct. Hoping and praying for the everyone's safety... you have a good weekend! hugs back!
