An Accidental Poet

A protracted silence
Nibbling away his patience
As he gazes at the blank sheet in front
A poet in his condemned infirmary
With a seasonal bout of writers block
The lexicon well merely a dried up pit
As the neurons fire empty buckets
Sans even a grain of inspiration even the novelty of thought
As he searches for the fruits of his labor
For a poet’s life is a path paved of thorns
For there is defeat in silence
A fermenting anxiety within doubt
A profound humiliation in rejection
Knowing that each word conjured by the poet’s palms
Will be dissected by blades of judgment
As a lonely poet wrestles forces of destiny
To narrate an enthralling fairy tale
Of an accidental poet
