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

Matilda told such Dreadful Lies,
It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes;
Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
