Struggling to Write (1 Viewer)

I've been struggling to write
exactly what I feel;
the Muse works like that:
She doesn't let me go
until I struggle and
wrench out my heart
wringing the blood
all over the page
scratching the thick, red ink
into words and phrases
that truly mean something
because of the struggle.

Funny, Robert, I was recently thinking about writing a poem such as yours. It's something we all go through!

I like this very much. It gets across the "struggle" very deeply and darkly.
wrench out my heart
wringing the blood
all over the page
scratching the thick, red ink
into words and phrases

Thanks for the read. Laurie

Good piece of writing Robert. It is expressing the way that I am feeling at the very moment... struggling to put two words together to form a sentence.
