How Can I Write?

how can I write?
when youíve stolen my words
with kisses that still linger
on lips
that could not taste
your lies

how can I write?
when Iím blinded by fear
as I find myself
alone once more
and darkness resides
where once was your light

how can I write?
when my hands are bound
in the web of your deceit
the gossamer threads
holding me tight
like I once held you

please tell me...
how can I write
without you?



 Have you ever noticed
That the words...
"Goodbye"
"I'm sorry"
"I love you"
Are so easy to pronounce
...Yet so hard to say

"on lips that could not taste your lies".
Hoot, what a unique expression.  Not surprising coming from such a writer as yourself. Your words bring us into the reality of your emotion.
Very nice.

Is it appropriate for me to say
You write with beauty and grace

Because that is how I feel when
You ask the question
'How can I write...'

Well, when they're gone that's when you get to write about them, Ruth.    Then you can say what ever you want!  btw, I hate that gosamer stuff wrapping itself all over you, isn't that the worst?  Great poem, you're writing just fine.

You write what is written in your heart, like you always do, and your heart is beautiful.

Another great one Ruth, thanks for the read.

 Yes, I admit your general rule. That every poet is a fool:
But I myself may serve to show it. That every fool is not a poet.

A feeling I've shared so many times but are these not the feelings that create so many more feelings in which we are able to dip into for touching poetry, the bittersweet feelings that create the words of our hearts and souls, you made me feel the pain of the poem and the hope of reading more of your work.  Thank you.
