Confessions of a Former Poet

I used to be a poet. I used to see poetry in everything - I used see the rich complexities of life, the pain and pleasure of living... yes, I had that poet vision.

I have not see that vision in me... I'm afraid I have lost that sight. I want to return to that vision I had.

Any suggestions from the readers who pass by?

Assalamualaikum,
was just passing ur blog and read this entry. subhanallah! i felt the same way too. i used to write poems too, but lost it along the way. at times, there's a desperate sense to gather back those energy. but to no avail.

i think, i wrote poems better in the past because poem was a way out to express my emotions during the black days. but when it's much better now, i guess, life too figured, i don't need to resort to that anymore. and ive already gone pass that phase already.

i think this is the best of explaination.

write
write
write
words strung together that make no sense
but make all the sense in the world.
I lost my ability to put it all down but still it is there inside waiting for me to find that switch.

Also if you stay up all night like I do the witching hour is usually around three am. Drunk on a lack of sleep and too much thinking something will announce itself.

I think nazira made some good points. I think when we have the "vision" there is a need. And either we suffer emotional exhaustion, or we find some sort of happiness. Unfortunately, I think it's most probably the former.

Thanks for the comments everyone. I usually get surprised when I get comments since I'm not if anyone knows about this blog or checks with it.

haha. :)

I like the idea of write, write, write - I'm thinking of reading, reading, reading, first before writing.

Why not use Stat Counter? You can see who is viewing your blog, which pages, where they're from, it's great!

As for poetry... Poetry is when we see the world anew. When we are reborn. When the entire world is reborn to us.
