~ Without Words…

~ Without Words
When the Poet no words to share

The soul lingers unaware

The inner voice cannot be heard

Collective conscious void of word

And the Poet – head bent in defeat

Wads of paper about his feet

Tries invoking the witching hour

Sleepless he knows he’s built a tower

A wall surrounding – not of mortar or stone

But of sorrow he bears all alone

Misunderstood, no words to share

The soul lingers unaware.

  1. “For oft when on my couch I lie
    In vacant or in pensive mood
    They flash upon that inward eye
    Which is the bliss of solitude”

    Happened to the great and the good as well!

    (Extract from ‘I wandered lonely as a Cloud’ – William Wordsworth)
