Poetry Magnum Opus

April 22 - Why?


Recommended Posts


This didn't used to be so hard,
I wrote with passion
to record my thoughts,
events, actions.
I wrote
in love with words.

I would write
into the early morning,
sacrifice sleep
for a poetic symphony;
allow the dishes
to sit in the sink
while I let my fingers
talk to the page.

The sun is setting,
the hum of the dishwasher
is lulling me away
from the screen,
I'll try again tomorrow.
