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

    Love these lines frustrated fury fights dirty, with a frigid fear of self

    So I wrote what first came to mind upon reading this

    Mustered into a curious plight
    Your pen, a knife overcoming the bridge
    Of horrors you penned words of light
    Fear was a shadow that now subsides

    Sweet poem =) thanks for sharing! ! (Report) Reply

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
