Longing to Write

Images wrap themselves
in serpentine coils
around my gelatinous mind
yet no words coalesce
when my thoughts apply
to blank page stared upon

Lyrics to describe
that everburning rage
seem trite and repetitious
like overused tropes
fed to the blank masses
and thrown up by sad poets

Articles of division
satirical in expression
seem suited to cartoon
yet these clumsy hands
were never meant to draw
instead fumbling at keys

Symphonic soliloquies
lamenting loneliness
seem immature and desperate
like teenage lovers
heartbroken over each other
as if no one understood

Time whispers mute
cloaking my sacred muse
stomping upon my will to write
as if snake to heel
and all that seems left
are these thirty lines.

    wow. Only thirty lines but………Can you also express what you have written here in a longer more diary entry form? It lends itself to expansion in some way but stands alone as kinda thought provoking in an unusual way.


  3. In ell, make up one’s mind the features you would like to include in your website. The next step is to choose a website layout and planning how to arrange
