Another Poem Lost!


Words
Stick to my hands, cling to my fingers, hide under my elbow.
A trembling poem loses its grip and drops on the sheet.
Petrified!
Alphabets behave funny these days.
Like a mute child with an unbearable stomach-ache.
Baffled phrases bulky with meanings
Heave a sigh for some fresh air.
I am answerable to words, they grow on me
We are poetic parasites, addicted mutually
Hearts glorify my words, in a flattering applause
I put my pen to rest, mourning another poem's loss.

  1. Hey, terrific stuff yet again. I like the metaphors you use. The Mute Child one is brilliantly phrased and placed. Please just make a correction (if I may ask you to)in the last line -- "another poem's loss"

    Keep Writing.

    Peace Out.
