All the luck of a writer.....

Yet what is it most the writer loves
and why
Little things I believe
the sun the
moon
the dark unknown night sky
For this pretender for lack
of better words
Its solitude that haunts him
and the comforts of not knowing
things
For the poet knows too much
at least in part
To much about the darkness
of the alone
of chance
of hearts
In the words and the jouurney that
they take you on
You will find yourself
in a place where
You know less
than you did about
these things
But .........Only if
you're lucky

Hello ahorseback, this is so touching and true, nicely subtle, the way you describe the pull between wanting to know, and knowing too much. Thank you for sharing. Regards, snakeslane

I loved that poem. Have only read a few, am not very good at poetry, but this one is lovely. I have read your poems but not commented. This one I had to comment. Keep up the good work.

Voted up and awesome.

" for the poet knows too much" hits home on many fronts.

only the poet can tell you how he feels and you will feel his pain but hope that you never experience it.

Great writing.

A writer loves everything yet they love being alone the most. Their loneliness becomes a part of them, especially poets. I find that my life now, living with someone takes away that special thing that used to make me want to write poetry all the time. I do still write but something is missing.

This is a beautiful poem. I really enjoyed it. It says so much about a poet and how the poet feels.

Great reflections on writers. True, we love the simple things and the journey of discovery. We seem to find valuable treasure in such unusual places. Enjoyed your poem.

Oh wow! Doesn't even express what I felt reading these words. Voted up and awesome. It brings tears to my eyes because my dad was a poet too and through his words he opened up so many worlds of beauty. Love this so much!!!!

Writers do have some instances of confusion and do not know if they are better off not discovering on their adventure. Great reflections of truth. Enjoyed reading through your poem.

Ah yes, the poet knows it all and knows nothing and that is what compels him to write.....and to write. My votes to you, Ahorseback.

Cardisa I think that our poetry writing comes from a certain misconnections from normal emotional connections. I think I see that in your words and you in mine ! Make time for YOU and writing . We can live and love too without giving up our soulfull connections .Its Just that when you are happy and in love there is only time for that ? I know that the beauty of your soul will always be there !We can wait while you love ! Be well!.....:-}

lol Good old ahorseback, is this my problem?

It is good to see you still pretending as you say and doing so well you would think that your pretending was a demure for talent quite real.
