The Last Teardrop In The Desert

The Last Teardrop In The Desert

A Poem by Ann

I'm in a desert
Surrounded by emptiness
Begging for inspiration
Begging for motivation

I try so very hard
To find what was never mine
A word, a syllable, even a letter
Let alone a string of words that'll form a line

I use my passion
And deep determination
To get rid of my diffidence
For this is not mere pretence

I observe, not just see
I listen, not just hear
But gone is all my creativity
And all that once was, has formed a tear

But I will cherish this tear
Even though it may hurt
For I know, it is the only drop left
In this endless desert

So here I sit trapped in this cage
Throwing up words on the page
For you don't know what goes inside
In the desert of my mind.

Author's Note

Ann
This is probably the best poem I've written so far. I actually started out this poem signifying the struggles of writing but after I finished, it turned out way deeper than I thought.

I like the idea of one tear drop in a whole dry desert, It's taunting like even if I was a sea you couldn't drink it, I also love the last line because people are jerks to people or accuse them of things or think they act the wrong way, but no one knows what it's like in someone else's head

You have poetically captured the essence of yearning for that moment of writing enlightenment. One teardrop, squeezed from a grain of sand can creatively produce a flood of imaginative prose - well done you! :-)
