Difficult Balance


Sometimes,
The insane part of the World of Poetry,
Gets the best of you,
And you lash out, with impunity,
Foolishly, with lunacy,
Trying to calm your Inner Pain,
But you must find a balance,
Between reality and insanity,
Hard thing to do, I know,
If you are an Artist,
And a Poet, too

    Finding that exact balance is hard to do when you are a poet/artist/musician too.
    Sometimes our poetry shows one side sometimes the other. When it balances
    it's a perfect fit. Absolutely love your way with words. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
