A Poet is not Poetic

A poet is not poetic

poets are the most un-poetical creatures

confounded and confused by their own minds

struggling to create,

not realizing it must come as freely as leaves to trees

A poet is not poetic

words come quickly, the wrong ones

in conversations with ones we admire or adore

besieged by thoughts

unbidden burdens to share a world of our own invention

A poet is not poetic

revealing wonders

unspoken yet frightfully implied

the secrets of hearts and heads

in black and white for all the world to see.
