I Want To Write Poetry

I want to write poetry but all I can get
is a low dull hum

I know it’s just waiting for me to find it again

These ideas, these words, those feelings are just out
of my reach. Go figure

I kinda feel… not lost, but just different
without any words… solid words to put down,
and writing about how I can’t write
and how I’m running out of ideas, doesn’t count
as a poem because… well its just a rant.

I want those beautiful words that flowed through me.

Funny how people said I’m lovestruck because I always
write love poetry… romantic whatever you call it.
When in fact I have never been in love…
That’s just an absurd idea open to interpretation

Maybe I wrote about it so much because, I was looking for it
Or maybe in a past life I was a Keats or a Rossetti

and these words… those words

that flew through me then keep burning for an escape out of me now.

I’ve never been one for looking at my own feelings
too closely- who wants to be faced by the ugly
truth?
That doesn’t make sense, but my point is
I want to write poetry but all I can get
is a low dull drum
