As I Write it Down

As I Write it Down

A Poem by Emo_Cat

My pen bleeds
As its ink seeps
My words cry
The seer weeps
I keep scrawling
Until my pain recedes
Walking on my way
Where my lament leads
Crumbling to bones
Changing to fit the needs
My frailty drives me
As nothingness breeds
In madness I did
Those fearful deeds
Now I'll have to pay
The price of my greed
Making me suffer
My demons succeed
In the garden of love
I feel like a weed
I am looking for my way
To the flowery meads
Where the chains will be shattered
And then I will be freed

Hello everyone!
I know I haven't published anything is a long while. My next poem that I will be publishing will be, in a way, explaining why I've been m.i.a.
I would really appreciate it if you would leave a review. Perhaps with some constructive criticism.

I like this quite a bit, E-C. I like the rhyme scheme. One thing I would consider would be to remove some of the filler words By tightening this up I think it would be more impactful.
i.e.
My pen bleeds
the ink seeps...

scrawling until
my pain recedes
following where
my lament leads...

frailty drives me,
nothingness breeds...


These are only suggestions of course, it is a good write.

Great visualization! I can't really think of anything you could add to this simply because this is your signature kind of poem, where the reader feels both out-of-body and there with you, as you, kind of experience. It shows a sense of resentment for past actions yet at the end, shows despite the corrosion you will still be free, you won't be darkened by it as well. Affected? Yes. But never caged.

Can't find anything to criticise here Emo. (except that you obviously couldn't find a way to work the word "peed" into your poem) Well writ my good man!

Mea culpa my good lady!
Writers can get through any situation in life by writing about it. I am convinced of that. Good expression in this one and the staccato lines are effective. I liked the rhyming. Lydi**

This is a beautiful poem. As spoken word, a proper actor will bring out the deeper level of meaning within. I shared it as Poem of the Day on Coffee Poem on Twitter and Facebook today.

I like the rhyming that threads through this writing. A nicely written, introspective piece.

I've missed you (I've been sketchy too) . . . hope we can be back for good. I love this poem more for the wordplay than the message. I have to admit I'm not up for a "down" message, but I love the way you turn this seemingly tortured state of mind into artful expression. Most of all I love the way you pay attention to the way the words sound, not exactly rhyming, but an uninhibited flirtation with it! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
