i must

i must

‘tis a strange mixing that makes a poet
a brewing
of the unseen
with that which may be to some
to another

yet it stirs within us
temperatures elevating
begging for a liberating
an expectorating
in to verse

a blessing ?
or a curse ?

yes we suffer to speak
tweaking our lines
trying to find
a common mind
among an audience of one

but one

they say a poem
is never done
of this i can attest
for the quest of life
is but one continuing journey
where words serve
a purpose
to relieve the anguish
and share the joys
those evident
as i said before
and those not quite so

i have tried to rest
seeking to alleviate
my needs
but they can only be relieved
when i write

it matters not the time of day
nor night
whether the voice is melodious
or trite
or fright filled
the words must be spilled
for this fullness i feel
must be let

yes . . . i must
