    Poets and Poems

    From the depths of the poet’s mind

    Come words framed by feelings struggling to be set free

    Conceived in a storm of emotions

    Born of life’s painful lessons

    Once written there is no escape

    The poem is forever a part of the poet

    A lasting reflection of the poet’s inner soul

    Leaping tall buildins is not even a remote possibility for me at this stage.

    Well said! It is quite an afliction,in my opinion to have to write whats surfacing-but it is also such a feeling of self.You worded this perfectly,a dead on discription of the compulsion to create.I really love this!

    Thanks very much. Did you happen to read The Creative Process?

    If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
