EXCLUSIVE: From my writing archives…

Hey poetry,

It’s been a while
Since I gave you attention,
Nurtured you with passion,
Helped the words to flow,
Allowed the flame to ignite,
And let the creativity grow.

Yet, you’re always on my mind,
Forming sentences and lines,
Sometimes speaking out loud,
But rarely writing poetry down…

I’m sorry,
Sincerely sorry, I am.
I neglect you, though I know you’ll understand
The way I use you to express
My thoughts and feelings and the mess in my head,
Use of provocative lines and tying it in with rhyme.

Let me try again this time.
Give me a chance to put it right,
Put pen to paper,
Let the words spill out,
Let me write well into the night
And there will be no doubt,
About where my mind rests,
Or where my heart lies.
