Damn Those Poet Gods
 
 
Sleepless nights and distant days
Through thorns and sordid blinding haze
Pushed through comfort and rest about
Steady hands molding faith in doubt
  Stopping when hell is a sacred place
  And earth is a lofted planet keeping pace
 
Those damn poet Gods and their pushy ways
I’m a rag doll loosing my way thru the maze
My own thoughts are sufficient words unheard
A ragged warbling from a song-less song-bird
My pride is an anchor wrapped around my feet
A sweetness dipped in a sauce made bittersweet
 
How beautiful those commanding poet Gods
I hear their words, their palpitating vocal throbs
The overbearing ways they enter my mind
Their passionate journey to find what they find
Their dashing to my heart like a shooting star
I stand amazed in awe for what they are
Those damn poet God’s, please come again
I beseech thee to blow your breath on me. Amen

I'm going to keep reading yours, they are really very good. You remind me of some of the great 19th century poets.

Indeed those poet gods tend to come at the worst possible time, like when one is trying to go to sleep

Actually they were poems given to me through my meditation. I guess they could be women as well. Thank you for commenting on my poem.

I think that they may be women, at times, but who knows. Well said, well written.
