A Writers' Zen


Muddy mind
melds shy meekness
into confusion

Emotions emaciated
and encased in quicksands of
unsure

Frozen solid,
frustrated fury fights dirty
with a frigid fear of self

Stifled silence
of incensed solitude


Trapped by timidness,
tangled with acute awareness

Dumb struck into oblivion,
with one deliverance.....


A gaping hole
A endless pole
A tortured soul

Then

A tempered pen
Enter again
A writers' Zen
