I'll never write another poem
that's a promise I make tonight
Please do not try and argue with me
'cause I feel it is what's right!

Not a single word that's in my mind
will reach my hand again.
I shall not write what's in my heart
of life, love, death, nor sin!

I shall not write to vent my hurt
or frustrations of the day.
No more poems of things I've learned
or poems just to say HEY!

I locked my heart behind a wall
and threw away my pen.
The inspiration need not come
because I'll never write again!

Now take this poem, it is my last
and read it one more time.
Now leave this page and don't come back
and forget that it was mine!



 I'm not waving, I'm drowning!

Echo--I forget who said it--forgive me--but whoever it was said---"if you can NOT write--don't..."    This too shall pass...Not an argument, but a prediction...

I feel like this most every night
why should I endure the fight
A losing battle
in my mind
No friend that cares enough to find
... my dignity ...
who cares if I don't ?

Well, you can deprive me of any future poems, if that is your desire, but you can't make me forget.....oh, no,no,no....and I can click on this one anytime I want to...hehehe....but seriously, don't give up writing, you are so good at it. I've also found that it is the best outlet for emotional turmoil, at least for me it is. So please reconsider!

This is the only poem I have read of yours so far.  It leaves me wondering what forced this decision.  I hope it really isn't your last.  But if it is, it's a great one to end with.

Now that I've seen your writing, I'll have to go and search through the ones that you've posted before.

Good Luck, whatever you decide.

I must say I do not understand it, nor the emotion behind it, or should I say I have never been where you are...once I found writing could cleanse my soul, I would never give it up....there are times when I am without words...and there are times when my words are inadequate, but it is a gift given to me, to help me cope....and I do say thank you for it....with or without writing....I hope you find your way to cope too...

And why would this be? I hope you don't quit writing, because I've told you many times you have such a gift for it! Along with your drawing...and I'm stickin to it

This is one of your best...see if it wasn't the last one, you would have more just like it...I know from experience you can't stop writing... you've got poetry in your soul...

I hope this isn't your last poem. It's the first one I've read of yours and I like it a lot. Peace to you. ACT.

Thanks serenity and Rex

Devina...Not just a venting poem, sorry.  Im not writing anymore poetry.  Reasons yet to be told to anyone!

Now Denise, give me a little more credit please...cause as far as depriving you from further poetry, I can also deprive you of this one as well by deleting its contents!  Didn't think of that did you? As far as me being 'good' at writing, I have to STRONGLY disagree with you there!  Reconsider?  Me?  Sorry!

Thanks Dio & Corazon

Rebecca...Gift for writing?  NO!  Drawing, maybe!

PdV...Well, we'll see, but I believe that I can and WILL quit writing!

Thanks ACT but it is!

"Apoem is not an idea. it's an experiance. a carefully shaped experiance when the reader (an sometimes the author) discover things about life and themselves"

Don't give back a gift. You can leave it in the closet for a while. But don't give up on it all the way.


 We all got somethin' we need to atone for.

Echo, this is your decision. . . I can't say that I agree with it, but I will not tell you how to do things. . . but know that once you've begun down that road, there may be no turning back. . .

You will pick up the pen again one day Melanie. . . mabye not for a long time, but a day will come that the only way to express yourself will be with that pen. . . and on that day, you will save your life. . .

deVine is right. . . it's in your soul. . .you can run. . . but you can't hide. . .
