To All The Poets
here's to all the poets
who sat with just a pen
and labored into the night
to find the poems end
 
minds with words that drift
looking for a place to fit
that perfect little word
that seals the feel of it
 
broken hearted human beings
who struggle to express the pain
of how deep the hurt of loss is
that even words are penned in vain
 
to the writers whose lives are lost
whose only friends float deep within
simple words of gray and black
color their lives from start to end
 
here's to the countless writers
in search of that immortal line
that screams to all who read
i was someone...somewhere...sometime

Trenchtownrock says it best...a kick ass write it truly is. It actually gives me goosebumps to read because you've tapped into the heart of the poet; the lonely nights; the searching for words and meaning both in life and in poetry; the friends within; the part of us inside that is screaming while we sit quietly dredging the deep places within us. The last verse made me want to pick up a glass and toast us all, known and unknown, who burn with the white heat of a poet. The last line - so incredibly poignant; it hits the mark right at the center.

i like it. Poetry is a way of saying what you want without necessarily saying it.

A Word from the Writer
We all search for that one line that will live beyond us.
