I'm Not A Poet


I can't get
every word,
you write with my blood.
It flies above my head.
I'm a nincompoop,
who pretends to be
a poet but not actually,
as you are all.My eyes
are closed, I'm flying.
Any time I may fall.
Once a famous poet
of Poemhunter
advised me to send
my poems to him
to give them good flavor,
as I'm multilingual,
I may not know the
language, I mean English well.
Though depressed,
I couldn't do that.
Val assured me with
her kind words
and getting enthused
I wrote many poems.
Now I think,
were they poetry?
The ups and downs,
few love and
great hatred,
fill my eyes
with tear
still now....
I declare I'm
not a poet but a fool,
who pretends
as if he is a poet,
but fails to catch
the feelings of his
friends and goes on
stooping emotion from
the withered hearts!

    Most of us here are not poets, but we give vent to our feelings in a language, others can understand! We derive pleasure out of it, sometimes others too! What other claim can we make? So keep writing! ! (Report) Reply

    Poets are not measure by a poem but by the years.
    Just as a poem has meaning on the page,
    a poet has meaning over a life time.

    Of course you are a poet, and a well loved and respected one at that. You are very popular on PH, many love your work, so keep on writing and never put yourself down. We all feel that we are not good enough at times - it is important that we never become complacent, and it is this that spurs us on. You have written a lot of talented work - the birds sing your praises, so ignore the snake that rattles around in the basement. (Report) Reply
