A Poem by Thomas W Case
"

here is a link to my you tube channel where I read my poetry. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KjeCroHYQxU

"
Hobbled by the
sun, and laid
prostrate by
days of
degenerate
behavior.
Days of
nothingness,
and worse.
Only writing
could save me.

Poor and lonely.
No warm woman to
hold.
No booze.
No home.
But, I had my
writing.
It let the light in,
and buffered me from
the crowds of
scarecrows with sewn
on smiles.

Writing keeps me
immortal and kills
the pain.
It soothes the
mice lost in
the maze, and
brings the stray cat
home to a house where
he's safe.
Writing is the
pillow that keeps
my head up, and
my heart engaged.

Featured Review

The batterings of life can be fierce, and many don't have an emotional buffer to fall back on. That's where the practitioners of an art have an advantage. When all else goes south, there is that art in which to take refuge. Very perceptive writing, Thomas.

Thank you, my friend.
Writing is an emotional outlet for many, an art form that lets you get lost in other places that you design around yourself .
You can be anything you wish in creative writing , there are no rules ....
