The Writer In Me Wants You To Know

There's more to a person than meets the eye. More than words can say. The writer in me wants you to know What up front, I can't convey. Water runs deep Too deep for conversation. To surface the soul Requires time and meditation. It's impossible to express When we don't know what we feel. It's a challenge to separate The fake from the real. When shadows of the past Conceal the futures light, A person can feel Imprisoned inside! The writer in me Wants you to know That there are certain things One cannot let go. We can battle with fear, Insecurities overcome, After all negativity is Not something we welcome. Occasionally the words Will fail to follow What we want to explain, Desire to show... Something The writer in me wants you to know.

Your approach to this theme was very unlike mine, but that is what makes it great about poets. We are all so different. Great writing here. Good to know a little more about you!

Yes I think the contests are always very interesting. It's nice to see the scope of approaches to the theme. It's exciting to read so many takes on a simple line such as "the writer in me wants you to know". Thank you for your comments Andrea. :-)

Your poem is beautiful and thoughtful - exactly how I feel as a writer. "When shadows of the past Conceal the futures light, A person can feel Imprisoned inside!" These lines are brilliant, and so true! Keep creating wonderful poems. Love ~ Mala
