I don't write for replies--
I
write because
I need to
I write because
everyone has that 'thing'
that makes their world go 'round
and my 'thing' is--
scribe-singing--

*i just hope y'all be listenin'--

I don't write for recognition--
I write because the world and I connect on--
unspoken realms
and just *living life*
wouldn't do my pen and pad justice...
NOW WOULD IT???

I write because someone is lonely--

someone might wanna curl up and get comfortable next to one of my metaphors--
hold my similies close and relate...
to the joys and ails--
truths and sorrow--
love and disgust--
sunshyne* and thunderstorms...

i don't write because i want to be a best-seller--
i write because words--
float about in my head--
every 1.4 seconds--
all twenty years of my life...
and i pull them down--
i bleed--

*liquified pencil lead--

deep in my stare--
you might see lined paper...

i write because--
i haven't a choice.

<<<fist in da air... yellin'... "Write On, Poet!!"

this was eloquent-ly expressed & i'm sure a
number of us can relate!
personally, when i see a piece of me that has
lets say 8 replies... & 50 hits... i smile :) ... the
reader might not have left something behind...
but i've been allowed to touch someone
with my sun-rhythms... & its a wonderful feelin'!

AlwaysLove.

...and i write because
---because your spirit uplifts
mine ...
taking away the blues of
my inked mind and exchanging it
for the indigo'd entry in my
journaled life
consuming the beverage
of words that are served
as a poetic *high ball
and sharing several
glasses of lexical expressions
with lemon and lime
...and i write because
i want you to know
a little something more
about me....
the side that many others
don't otherwise get the
opportunity to see
i experiment with
organized combinations
and patterns of thought
researching systems
of words making sense
of insignificance and
trying to convey messages
through a rambling
excursion of synonyms
that *live and *dwell
forever within me
...and so i write
as well as
i read you...
responding to my need
to respond to your
well versed passage --
your scribed-sung composition
shifted me N 2 a state of
accented syncopation like
Mozart's Symphony
number 25
and yet i write
...simply because
.....i must

not something I love
thepoetsean,

Thanks for so eloquently articulating my feelings!! I feel the same way. To me, it's just like icing on the cake when someone takes the time to reply to whatever words I've posted, I'm just happy the Creator was generous enough to drop rhymes on me. It's an honor to share them, the replies are gravy!

Well said!!

I write because I am
I share because we are

We are brethren
Of a kindred spirit sometimes deep within

Of a kindred spirit
That makes us kin

I flow that that I know
I listen to you flow what you know

Thanks for sharing
so we all can grow

and I reply to let you know that your rain of knowledge
has helped me grow
