The Poem In Me

In my last post, I talked about one of my poems that had been accepted into St.Somewhere Journal, and although I linked to the Journal itself, I neglected to link to the poem that got accepted.  I decided to rectify that today.  This is the poem that has been accepted – speaking to the writer’s dilemma of being accosted by the thought that would not go away; I wrote about it from a poet’s perspective, but every writer can relate to this. Enjoy!

The Poem in Me
The poem in me
Wakes me
Sometimes noisily
Screaming for me to


Sometimes subtly
Whispering seductively
Teasing me by lifting skirts
Showing a taste
Opening up just a little
Till I can almost see….


The poem in me
Rises like a goddess
Regally extending thoughts
With the air of royalty
Pronouncing honours
On special holidays
I kneel to receive my knighthood
My night’s hooded by thoughts
Of my poem blatantly
Stalking me
Pursuing me like
I was the prey
And she
The huntress….

The poem in me
Births within me
Attached umbilically
Grown naturally
From an idea’s sperm
Planted into pages womb
By phallic pen
Stroking again
And again
And again
Till I cum
To the explosive conclusion
No more the illusion
Of emotional ecstasy
But its reality.
