Inside A Poet’s Mind

Inside A Poet’s Mind

written by: JOHN BAVERSTOCK

 

Subjects that Poets,
Often write about,
Transpire from a world,
Built around self-doubt,
Entering, the darkest place,
Of their conscience,
Just to recall things,
Of very little significance,
Leaving a huge footprint,
On a scared mind,
Making the right words,
So difficult to find,
Traumatic events,
Are so hard to shut away,
As they frequently visit you,
Almost every day,
Stopping the ability,
Of being able to express,
Creating a feeling,
Of unworthiness,
Taking to disguising their words,
To make them easier to understand
This keeping hidden,
The cards held in their hand,
Being able to write,
Behind a mask,
Will never prove,
To be an easy task,
Which makes Poets,
The only ones that ever know…
Being in that Dark place.
Is the safest place for them to go….
