He wonders
Why I write poem after poem
He yells
Often in anger and a dirty house
Words that hurt me more
Than he knows
Oh yes, i’ve been through
“Writing always following me around”
The feeling is like
Being a mother
Staying faithful
Acting like a woman.
We are what we feel
(It goes as far as we go)
What he doesn’t know
Is I too have doubts
And rejection slips are easy
Compared to what he lays on me
I don’t know how to stop
Loving my children
Being faithful to my husband
Acting like a woman.
Poems come to me.
I simply
Must
Write them down….

(This is one of my eary attempts at writing free verse. .published 1983 in. ” Christian poet”..magazine)

One Response to “Poetry”

  1. So good – conveying the emotions of the drive to write, the indifference of a spouse with expectations, self-doubt.
