The Poet


He will go away! ! ! !
they say
with open palms
under the rocks

He will go away! ! ! !
They proclaim

swirling over themselves
chanting
with stretched fingers over his gold

lurking through the shadows
the indefatigable poet writes
~still~

your hands shooting words
going away
defenseless

    A poetic phrase is the defence of an intellectual soul... I believe poetry is the third eye on life that we all posses, yet few choose to truly see... Nice poem, well written... (Report) Reply

    the true wealth of a poet is in his poems. laying out every word as if it were his last. leaving nothing and gaining nothing but, cultivating the imaginations of those who dare to read. now that is the intangable gold. (Report) Reply

    Nah, the poet never goes away. With his words he forever stays. Locked into a pages of time. Forever changing minds with his lovely yet wicked rhymes. Some even lustfully delicious. He is the one and true poet. Good Poem. (Report) Reply
