    It's not that my pen has
    runneth dry
    It's just that I have too
    much to say...That's why
    as I write these lines
    I am taking my time
    to feel each thought
    flowing into this rhyme
    So much life, so many
    decisions having to be made
    based too strongly on indecision
    as the realization of this is laid
    upon my psyche, I know what
    I need to do, what I must do.
    In order to make a change it's often
    necessary to attempt something new
    so that rose colored glasses won't be
    the only lens that alters my view
    Striving to see beyond 20/20
    Trying to write and truly capture
    why
    For you see
    It's not that my pen has runneth dry....

    The best poetry is emergent poetry...
    evoked through reflection and then
    letting go...so it can flow
    so long as a poet breathes...
    even his breath...is poetic

    Feeling the message...

    this makes me yearn for the presence of your writings.
    like a child cries for nurture
    I cried for nourishment from you
    My heart ached for your poems
    and I feared I was going to loose my mind
    Yet calling out your name was pointless
    cause watzinaname.....great flow poet u are one of my favs one here!!!

    hookup :thinking: :thinking:

    It brings to mind the saying "progress, not perfection." You are working it out through your writing, girl. Sounds good - keep goin.

    Borrow a quill and continue to fill this place with your ravishing flow. Your work overwhelmes. :spinstar: Emotions you tell. :spinstar: So fix the pen and flow.
