    The day that poetry left me

    I am a poet
    Without a rhyme
    A poet without a line
    And a poet without a thought
    Or a poem

    See, I remember the day
    When I first meet poetry
    But that feeling
    I use to get
    No longer exists

    I use to feel
    The excitement
    And the joy
    When poetry
    Entered and entertained
    My life

    All I wanted to do was
    Eat, sleep, and breathe poetry
    But that feeling
    Has left
    And has gone away

    I miss the innocence
    The purity
    And the philosophy
    That poetry
    Use to give me

    It use to make me high
    And wish up on sky
    It made me feel
    Like there would be
    No tomorrow
    But that day has gone
    And today marks the day
    That poetry left me

    Since that day
    The high of poetry
    Has been extinguished
    I don’t feel the freshness
    Nor the feeling
    That poetry
    Use to give me

    See, I miss the days
    When poetry use to
    Make me happy
    When it shined higher
    Then the brightest star
    But now it is gone

    So let it be known
    And forever be heard
    Poetry, I miss you
    And still love you

    And with this I say
    Peace to poetry.

    I appreciate the way you expressed yourself with this. Sometimes it does feel like poetry deosn't have the freshness that it once has, I suppose at those times we have to bring something different to it somehow. Well written piece poet.

    Bravo! sounds like you and poetry won't be far apart though because you and the flow still remain one.
