The candle of my words

Here, I wait at the portals door.
Waiting birth a poem or more.
And viewing paths to different shoals
Each word flares to light my goal.

The lights light up the bright and sad.
Some are good but most are bad
I write a lot about my dreams.
At least to me that's how it seems.

With I, the source of fantasy,
Agony and ecstasy
And though I wait the poem to be,
The pregnancy tires me.

I groan and moan upon the bed.
Giving birth, in pain and dread.
To thoughts of, will it live or die?
And either one, question why?

If one it twits my vanity.
The other spits profanity.

I very much enjoyed this piece. It speaks volumes to me. Never stop putting your dreams and your soul on paper. I for one get to know you through your words.

Seymour...I've never know you to write a
"bad" poem. This was very well stated.
Ahhh...the struggles. All in all, personally
I would much rather give birth to a poem.
(heee!hee)

I am speechless! All I can say is beautiful!
And to say that I also have never seen a 'bad' poem next to your name!

To all the above,
Your words quite often make me blush.
And often turn my heart to mush.
Thank you all.

I'm glad someone pushed this to the front
(I missed it somehow) because having read it I must say how well it flows (wish I had half your flow). Much loved :-)

The agony is well worth the effort Seymour. Your poetry I have always found to be a good read.

But with autumn leaf she perish'd, long time ago..."

I just want to know, with all this giving birth, who plants the seeds??????
Great read!
