In My Poetic Mind

Walt's Writings

In My Poetic Mind

there are times
when like Sylvia Plath,
I am afraid to be alone
with my own mind

the mind of a poet
has many sides
my mind is always filled
with romance, but
it also has a very dark side

chronic pain brings on
a dark side of me,
filled with with demons
and death

as Halloween approaches
my thoughts get darker,
filled with Michael Myers,
demon clowns, and zombies
roaming through my mind

I feel myself changing,
fighting the urge to write
about murders, bloodshed
and flesh eating monsters

it will hopefully
soon be over
by the end of the month
