The Day They Buried Poetry


Two years ago his poems died,
when fate chose that it have revenge.
I heard the creaking of a hinge
and listened as the mourners cried.

The author ambled off with cane,
while day lay wet upon his brow.
If words could be revived somehow,
but no, they died in severe pain.

They buried them with no fanfare.
No stone was left to mark the spot.
His sincere words are now forgot,
the many thoughts he tried to share.

In wee of morn, near sigh of day,
alone, he still pens poetry,
but not like works you used to see.
His thought‘s obscured, his temples, gray.

Michael

If it died two years ago,
today unburied, read, ya know?
and though the pain is in the sound
the chiseled words of heart I found

(tears fall down my cheeks) Oh Michael, it too breaks my heart when poets want to write but they are incapable of it and how so manys words are lost and can never be recited to another or be heard from the heart! (big hugggssssss) This is sadly powerful, sweet friend, your words continue to grow and amaze me, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Michael, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

That poor guy,  it sounds like his muse is in a coma...
I know this feeling all too well.
Very beautifully written, Michael...

Hi  Michael...
Very thought provoking write.
I especially love this last stanza,
And how the entire piece sounds...read aloud.
Excellent write poet sir!
