Brain Dump, Poetry, serious poem

I’ve Been Robbed!

I’ve not been on this blog for a long time – it’s been steadily declining in stats over the last couple months. I apologize to my readers for that. I’ve been going through some emotional stresses recently and basically I’m struggling to get my zeal for writing back.  But of course, I have to explain it in #PassionStyle, so … I just wrote this.  #BrainDumps



My emotions are thieves:

Stealing words and thoughts with the dexterity of the ninja;

Light fingered, then fading into the shadows as though they were never there.

My emotions jacked up my poetry in a dark alleyway at knifepoint

Demanding all of my jewelry and cash – anything valuable that I carried…

So all my words were given over grudgingly to save my own life

To keep my breath lodged within my chest,

Yet I cried tears of regret as my words disappeared

And as emotions took off running, leaving me with nothing –

Broken and empty, the only things glittering are the diamond tears

Rolling unceasing down my cheeks as my poetry was stolen from me.

Who do I call to report this theft? How do I get my jewelry back?

My heavy gold metaphoric medallion, my silver signet ring

Inset with the similes I held dear

Emotions stripped me, left me destitute and bare – not even leaving me

The Passion pendant I am known for.

I have nothing left.

A broken poet with all his cash gone.
