My Voice Calls Out

Updated on December 6, 2012

There are two things all writers harbor: their vanity and also at the same time, an insecure sense of achievement. There's always a fine delicate line separating them.



Words have their own feelings,
emotions and moods
when they leave us suddenly,
we then sound so crude


Meanings not felt,
words are hollow to the core
my voice calls out,
still always wanting more


So I try and I try,
to seek them out...once again
but my mind's painful journey,
knows it can't win



Forever forgotten ...
lonely and scarred
words of love, dreams and beauty,
won't come to this bard



Mans soul is unique...
kept in a beautiful space
Words are powerful objects,
both have their own place

      Ah I understand this. I only started writing poetry after coming here three years ago and having to make the poems 400 words or be fussed at I threw in many words with no meaning and would go back after publishing and say, OH NO. So anyway now the words must fall or I don't put them even if it means missing the mark. I think rules have changed now anyway.

      Love the baby picture! ^

      Michael your words are amazing.. where do you get the pictures from?

      that delicate line between Insecurity sense of achievement and vanity.. its a tight rope ... but why not with such words.. and achievement of many blessings.

      Love reading your poetry

      @ Deborah, thank you for the comments. I get most of my pictures from Google +. your poetry is also unique and beautifully passionate.

      @Vincent , my friend and mentor. thank you for your kind words. You seem to read my mind, for sometimes i almost want to stop writing as so many do ,but seem to be pulled back by an unknown force. Happy new year to you also my friend.

      @ Dim, my sweet poetess, thank you for the visit.

      You also express your emotions so softly and sweetly .
