Poetry of love and life

I havent been writing too much poetry lately, but I have been writing, nearly every day. It’s no long lost secret that the easiest way to write is to write about what you love, and I love music. When I write poetry, it is really just an extension of the lyrics to the music in my head. Although I may have my moments, I know I will never equal the talent of the artists I revered in my youth.

No, I haven’t been writing poetry lately,  but I have been writing – writing about poetry. Writing about you, about me, and about the one thing I know we probably have in common – music – the poetry of love and life. Please check out my other blog: The Vinyl Jungle.

If you love music as much as I do, I’m sure you will love it.


Inner Sanctum

There’s a door to the sanctum where inspiration is bled from me
It used to be easy to find
Even when there wasn’t a sign
But now it lies buried in distant memories
Of days past that shall never be

There’s a longing in my heart where emotion once roamed free
It may never live there again
Except in deep desperation
And uncovered in the darkest of times
But the desirous will never see

There’s a chasm inside my soul where temptation used to be
It’s hidden by a dark gray line
Buried in the depths of time
With remnants of what has forever been lost
And what is for all eternity meant to be

Method 2

Off the cuff
It will be enough
Don’t revise
What you feel inside
Right now
At this moment
Say what you want to say
Don’t try to find a better way
Just write down the thoughts that play
Inside your head
Right now
At this moment

Maybe the lines will rhyme somewhat
Maybe not
That’s not what‘s important
Don’t change it
Don’t play with it
Don’t think about it
Just let it flow
You’ll know
When it’s complete
When there’s nothing left to say
Thoughts on the topic close
And it’s done
Finished in an instant

Right now
At this moment

Method 1

Subconscious wanderings
Subliminal ponderings
Let them have their way
Open up the door
Revealing so much more
Than you could ever bear to say

Transitional tinkering
Thoughts that lie lingering
Waltzing through the pen
Pages to unfold
Thoughts that must be told
Of here and now and back then

Meaningful dependencies
Eliminate discrepancies
Read what’s in between
Hide in metaphors
What lies at the core
Don’t make it too easily seen

Final analysis
Passive catharsis
Let the feeling flow
Can’t find a better way
To open up and say
It’s time to just let it go
