Not intended, but where I ended

bytodski28©

Where has all the poetry fled,
into the past where the past is dead?
or remembered vague and hazy,
a smoky mirage of what was
not forging into what is of what
could be, bring back questing
originality, parsing not passing
but alas I know little enough on
my own so,

I fling a stone of words
into a well and forge
on with the day.

Return later,
stare at a screen to assemble meaning
some leave you breathless in-breathing
wonder how with a similar vocabulary
I could not do the same?
struggle on because,
I am enraptured
by what is captured in the heart
and core of the written,
bitten by desire
to fire the mind
with the glory of words.

Very, very good

Yes. Very good indeed. The ideas, feeling and flow.

May I preface my further comments.

'Non erotic poetry' is the most civilised and kindest of hubs on Literotica. Both virtues not to be dismissed -more...

The language.....

...in the final six lines is well chosen with internal rhymes flowing smoothly. I think this is really good. Five from me.
