Dear Reader

by Aegis   Feb 1, 2018

Dear reader,
My tongue has
lost its taste for mediocre
metaphors and haphazardly
placed dashes.

Dear reader,
No more crafty words sneak
through my skin and lazily
drip off my
fingers(or my lips.)

Dear reader,
My bones don't torture my hands
to transpose my blood to ink;
my veins to sentences,
(my heart to broken pixels.)

Dear reader,
I am painfully free,
yet unapologetically chained
to my
freedom(or at least to you.)

    Judging comment:

    I believe every writer can relate to this at one time or the other: the writer's block; and you have made your inability to weave words to form a string of beautiful lines of poetry. It is beautifully crafted, wonderfully portrayed and connects with the reader very well (it did with me). Do keep writing.

    I love this poem.; it relates a lot to how I feel about writing poetry, haphazardly placed dashes and all. Thank you for sharing it.
