    How can one release the flow
    which way should one go
    soul is bound within a cemented stance
    verses stuck in a still dance of time and space
    without emotion or joy to face

    Rhymes remain in the core of one's mind refusing
    to be released to this space or time
    bound by indecisiveness of who is who
    words are strained as a stuttering fool trying to release
    the truth from one's soul

    Bound by hurt that will not let go within this lifetime
    no words to flow
    Who is who one needs to know
    for without this truth
    there will be no flow
    Just bounded as if shackled to a tree without relief
    no circulations to heart or limbs given no reprieve
    blood stand still with no where to go
    Who is Who
    One need to know

    The need to dance throughout the day
    The need to smile without delay
    The need to trust is killing soul pain so deep
    one could never know
    silence is not golden to the ears where love is cherish
    bounded by hurt and fear
    Who is Who of this time with words dancing rich in rhyme
    bounded deeply to the core of the soul
    where no one is allowed to touch the icy cold thoughts which
    it holds

    Reading this, I thought of times when poetry was flowing in my head, but I didn't feel free to write it, let alone, share it. I like the vibe that you brought with this poet.

    yes

    when you are bound you can't seem to flow

    but the flow breaks the bound

    good insight from poets
    point of view

    I let it go. To be bound is to die. No verse or worth. I love freely from my soul and no one can take that from me.
