SILENT POET

“  SILENT POET ENCLOSED RHYME “


PEN DANCED ACROSS WAITING PAPER, WORDS FLOWED SMOOTHLY AS FINE WINE
EVERY DETAIL MAGNIFIED, SO CAREFULLY THOUGHT OUT
AS IF HE FOUND A SECRET, THE WORLD COULD NOT LIVE WITHOUT
LIKE A SCRIPTURE CARVED IN SOLID STONE, UNTIL THE END OF TIME 


   HE SPENT ALL HIS TIME WRITING ALONE, HARDLY HAD A FRIEND
   THE DAYS WERE ALL THE SAME, HE RARELY SAW THE SUN
   WHEN A POEM WAS FINISHED, ANOTHER JUST BEGUN
   TALKED ONLY TO HIMSELF, IN WEIGHTED WORDS HE COULD DEPEND


     YEARS FLEW BY TOO QUICKLY, HIS WORK STACKED ON A SHELF
     FATE GREETED HIM WITH DIGNITY, A WARMING IN HIS CHEST
     A SMILE FOUND HIS WRINKLED FACE, HE HAD GIVEN LIFE HIS BEST          
     A LIFETIME WORTH OF WORDS, NEVER READ BY ANYONE ELSE


      HE PONDEREDED FOR A MOMENT, LAYED DOWN HIS TRUSTY PEN
      STARING AT THE NOTEBOOK, FEELING ITS LAST WORD
      LIKE SO MANY OTHERS, NEVER TO BE HEARD
      HE WOULDN’T NEED IT ANYMORE, HE’D NEVER WRITE AGAIN
