I Drown In Words - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

I drown in words
Because I cannot swim
In very long poems.

I'm lost in a maze
When the meanings
Hide in vagaries.

I can't see in dark
Uncertainties
Of narratives with no end.

But like a cat
Too dumb to run away
I think with Poetry
I will stay.

    I don`t like long ones either - perhaps you may like to read mine entitled.....On Poetry, in similar vein. (Report) Reply
