Impossible loneliness of thick fog

Impossible loneliness of thick fog

A Poem by Plagued Monumentally

Writing through the thickness of the fog
surrounded by a bunch of deviled crows
there is no way I can describe the feeling 
that comes along with finishing a poem
but what I can describe is the feeling of
your heart lurching when you're too busy
imagining that you almost trip over a log

It happens to the best of us, sometimes the worst
karma comes in the worst of all forms, even food
mysterious substances in the mysterious meat
then I realize that some things are better left to 
experience rather than be defined as karma at first

Writing is a journey to experiencing the impossible
creating problems that centers from your own imagination
I'm not trying to teach you what you don't already know
what I'm trying to say is;

writing is lonely, and sometimes lonely is exercise
writing is a substitution for the tears that won't fall
writing is a substitution for the fearful fists
writing is a substitution for the happy smiles
but most of all
writing is the substitution for the pain you feel
when people look at you the wrong way

It's that...... and more....... let it take you more places, open more cobwebbed windows, let you look and see where those "wrong way" looking people aren't. Pain is a seed, when planted in the right soil, given the intimate chance, will grow to find the light and dissolve the fog, letting the inborn talent shine through.

... sure it wasn't an imaginary log? lol An intelligent write.

Beautiful and provokes a thought of what "writing is".
The people that Look at you the wrong way. Taken further
of the way they look at me. Is it my fear, my guilt, my insecurity.
Could writing be my escape from the way they look at me.

Excellent description. love it, especially the last verse...

writing is lonely, and sometimes lonely is exercise

writing is a substitution for the tears that won't fall

writing is a substitution for the fearful fists

writing is a substitution for the happy smiles

but most of all

writing is the substitution for the pain you feel

when people look at you the wrong way
