Thoughts Caught in a Net [ a poem ]
« on: Jan 12, 10, 10:17 PM »
I finished this one of earlier this evening. Hopefully it is self-explanatory.



Thoughts Caught in a Net

For the sake of these poems
I lay myself open
There are no filters or checks on what I
Choose to write here
Just the nearest I can get
To honesty.

For these poems
I reach look into those parts
Of my mind that shy from contact and
See what I can bring to the surface
That can be pinned onto paper as words.

For these poems
I live and breathe
The poems are not me, I am the poems
There is little more that feels as real
And my life becomes merely the pauses
Between the writing of these words.

For the sake of these poems I feel
Great joy and exhilaration and life
And despair and loneliness and grief
As I live the words and become the poem.

For the sake of these poems
I try to capture
My thoughts in a net
Of words so that you may see
Your own thoughts reflected on
The page I fill with these words.

I am a writer of poems
The rest of my life is
Nothing more than
A pre-echo of my dreams.



Thank you for taking the time to read my poem,
Love and best wishes,
Your Friend,
Langston.

I used to use clich�s all the time, now I avoid them like the plague, these days a clich� to me, is like a red rag to a bull.
"I'm an idiot, I've just realised"..."I don't think"....outrageously quoted out of context.

Thank you, Ray.

The poem was originally much longer, and I'm not sure that it couldn't be edited further. Maybe I'll have another look at it in a few days?

Love and best,
Your Friend,
Langston.
