The Poet's Lament

April 9, 2019

I should write a poem that's emotionally deep.
I stay up late trying instead of going to sleep.
I'm like ninety percent sure I have emotions and stuff,
But they won't go on the page; I'm finding this pretty tough.
With all the important topics in our world today,
You'd think I'd be able to write on one, some way.
See, why would anyone want to read a poem this bad?
My own lack of talent is making me pretty sad.
Getting frustrated at myself, now, I kick at my wall;
I'm wondering why I wrote any poem at all. 
Then I realize that, despite what I have said and thought,
This is an emotional poem that I have wrought. 
My feelings of frustration and sadness are written down,
They are the emotions in which this poem drowns.

    This is great! Also, I relate. I'm not very emotional, and so recently I've been trying to put more emotion into my writing. I think that you're right that sometimes the emotion is there, but it's hard to identify.

    I really identify with this!!!! I sometimes find it difficult to write about something light when so much poetry is about really deep, important, stuff.
