Cosmic Contemplation

Cosmic Contemplation

A Poem by alienated.aquarius

Nowadays I have more excuses than reasons to write.

However, when you run out of things to consume

It is time to create.

 

My unconscious canvas

So blank it became a

Collage of the collective consciousness.

I want to write about lives

That are more remarkable

than my own

Indulge in my imagination.

 

The irony is I never thought I’d be a poet

Quantity or quality

Quenching thirst for mania

Lobotomize the lack of motivation

Take advantage of time

Can’t ignore the calling

Keep it coming

Making sense of jumbled jargon

A lot of the time, writing feels like

giving up swallowing your tongue.

 

Can a preacher and a poet

Be one in the same?

Spirit speaks to me through scribbles

Picking up a pen is like

Picking up a phone

Cosmic telepathic artistry

you have access

you just need to remember what to dial.

sorry I have been MIA and havent been doing reviews like you have been requesting... life.
As for the review I like this piece, it's pretty straight forward in telling the thoughts you were getting across. i loved the line about writing feeling like "giving up" swallowing your tongue. sometimes for me i feel like if i dont get the thoughts or feelings out they tear me down or drown me. so i find that relatable. i will be honest and say for my liking it lacked some flow. thats just a personal liking, rhyme schemes and sentence manipulation pull me in and i find they often elaborate thoughts or emotions without being as direct allowing the writing to move freely and the reader to be pulled in. just a thought but love the piece and def can relate. =o)

I think a lot of people on this site never imagined producing such beautiful poetry either. But, we all have A LOT to say/write and most is worth hearing/reading. You have great work. Please, keep it coming.

It's nice meeting you and Oh, I can relate to this! Writing is revealing our soul, which we should never give up.

In everything that surrounds us, there always something, no matter how little, that gives freedom to the `creative juice` in our hearts. Great job! :)

Always jotting down thoughts, sometimes the words flow into a poem and sometimes nothing at all. Keep the ink flowing.

I feel the same way. There is always a reason to write down a thought or a feeling or to create a story. It's an impulse that is pure imagination. Keep writing! Your poetry is inspiring.

I really like this. I feel it on a personal level and really inspires me to make more pieces of my own. Great job!

As always, your writing is fresh & powerful & unexpected & thought-provoking! I am very familiar with that turning point in a writing trajectory where we go from burning to spill our own story . . . then gradually wanting to tell many others, too. All stories need to be told (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
