    Needy People

    I do believe poets are needy
    Among the neediest of the world’s needy people
    Unquenchable their need and thirst for knowledge
    The hard and soft
    The real and unreal
    The good and bad
    The happy and sad
    The facts and fantasy
    The black
    The white
    Every shade and color
    Every emotion in-between
    The Poet needs them all
    Processed in the mind
    Filtered through the heart
    Dissected in the soul
    The internal inkwell boils
    Then comes the most needy of needs
    The need to let the ink flow
    And from that need
    Come the words
    Oh the words
    I love the words
    Write the words Poets…
    Write the words
    I need the words

    Heartbeat,

    Thank you for your words
    Comforting, Loving, Encouraging words
    Truthful, Soulful, sometimes Biting words
    Words shared with much emotion
    Words that rarely cause commotion
    Words that bring peace to troubled souls
    Words I'm glad to behold
    Words that make hearts smile
    Words that make tears flow
    Words that bridge the gap
    between the Heart and the Beat
    Your words
    Your words
    I love your words
    Write your words
    I need your words

    :heart:

    Beautiful Peace as always Heartbeat!

    Thank you for your words.

    Destee

    In spite of myself, God continues to bless me and use me. I am honored to be in his service...as we all are.

    I like this piece especially the part that says

    The internal inkwell boils
    Then comes the most needy of needs
    The need to let the ink flow
    And from that need
    Come the words.....

    This is tight!!!
