Darkening Path ...Silenting Writer

I have written that of self expression
and then return to them later
I cannot speak for the rest
..... nor become my own traitor

The guarded scribbles can't take
the emotional wrath
There isn't enough light left
for illumating the path

Are the words still venting
enough..... the symbolic page
Have I spent all my emotion .....
vented all my rage

Perhaps they were better kept in
hiding .....let the solitude return
Once again the longing within
breeds a lesson......kindled pages burn

Were emotions meant to be kept
inside the heart
Instead of written in a market
when profits play a part

Fingers on the keys waiting......
waiting ......the cycle complete
All the man has now to do
is reach for delete

A penny for a page .....
a pittance for the  souls
Just maybe it's better off
unwritten.....flames into coals

Ah, these topic again. I read so many of these kind of Hub here and there but you made it more with gentle sentiment. You are very gentle heart indeed.

I wonder, what the ending of this later? Will we lost many friends or will we adapt and evolve, beat the new policy and take it for our benefit? For us, writers who should be inside 'the most creative people' group?

Dad, your pace is too fast. I just look away and you already created new Hub. Really impressive! Maybe you are the second fastest behind Epigramman?

PS: I just see the url. What do you mean by last Hub? Don't say you will go too?

"Were emotions meant to be kept

I have missed your words Dear Man! And I hope that you are not leaving anytime soon! I have lost my muse in the past weeks, but I know that I shall find it again, and in the meantime I need to be fed words from the poets upon the pages of Hub. And this one certainly has!

Freya , Much of my time is spend with a twirling mind , and my written words? All the same , At times I feel like ,in writing, I am baring my soul at a cost, And there lies the darkening path. Poetry sometimes is just written thoughts other times It seems to be out of my "control". Not a place of comfort for a rather private person. Thats all! Have a beautiful day my muslim daughter!

The idea of selling ones musings for simply profit is upsetting to be sure... then again, I know I have been blessed by the ability to read some of the greatest and most deeply profound thoughts due to someone publishing them. Your words are one of the blessings I look for every day. Thank you for sharing you with me.. we share many thoughts and you open vistas I never thought to explore.

The mark of a great story teller is the ability to weave the paths of the readers withing the lines.. you do that well.

Thank you again
