No longer

No longer…

No longer the same;
The poet I once was
Seems too lost to find,
Tired, at times broken,
The thoughts in my mind.
Tempted to give up,
But the heart disagrees,
Makes me still yearn,
For that poet inside me.
But no longer do I know,
Where that poet to seek,
For feeling that lost,
That this poem feels weak.

As part of our resolution to write more poetry in 2018, Reema and I have started this weekly prompt we’ve decided to call as Wednesday Verses. Each Wednesday, we’ll be writing a poem based on the prompt of the week, and sharing a linky. We invite you all to join us with your own poems on the prompt. Write on your blogs, and link up with #WednesdayVerses. We are happy to have you rhyme with us. Welcome!

Prompt #25 is   “No Longer”.

Please link up only if you’ve written a poem for the prompt!

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
