A Poet's Pen Is False Release

by debbylyn   Jan 3, 2007

A poet's pen with dexterous hand
Ink to paper often can
Woo a heart, bring on a tear
Soothe a soul or beckon fear
A harbinger of ecstasy
Written word but fantasy

A poet's pen cannot replace
Feelings held when face to face
Two hearts beating skin to skin
As passions fan the fire within
Eyes and lips light gaze to blaze
These can't be captured on a page

A poet's pen is false release
The ink and paper outlet brief
Though poem penned will time withstand
It traces not a lover's hand
As writer's splendid bounty falls
Know loneliness eclipses all

    So very true. We might put our feelings out there but they aren't exactly as we feel when with a lover, when alone etc. Nicely portrayed.

    That's how it is; how it feels. That's as real as it gets. Beautifully written x
