And this is my story

October 14, 2010

When days go by
and I have
nothing
to show for it
Powerless and flimsy
I panic
with the terror
of the empty notebook
of the blank envelope
Because I fear
that it will all go away;

each word is precious
and I am a coward
And this is my story

    There is incredible strength in admitting vulnerability. Plus, it’s sexy. Just sayin’.

  2. Powerful poem. And I can relate to the feeling!

    That is the primal fear, isn’t it–that we have nothing more to say, either on the page or to our loved ones (the prospect of another twenty-odd years of silence across the dinner table or the other side of the couch being truly terrifying), that we have reached the end of discovery. This is a crisp, clean expression of something that invites rambling disorder.
