No Way Out
Can a poet ever retired from his paper and pen?
To finally walk with expressive love hand in hand.
Or continued to trek in the words that line the soul.
Documenting passion daily takes a heartrending toll.
Silence the hearts's cried and submerge it with solitude.
Don't let words on parchment continue their royal rule.
Cast away the quill forever to the grave waters of the soul.
Bury the pending chapter as incomplete with a final drum roll.
Author's Notes:
Remembering the days when the times were simpler
 ....before love blindsided me...

With reality.....

just me

being a little reminiscent.

Excellent poem Dan, cast away the quill andthe paper? To actually experience the woeds we write would be blissful to say the least.   Henry

Dan, A terrific poem. I'm with Tina: how scary to think of a world without pending-chapters being penned!  And. Like She Whispers says, we will never stop the flowing waters of our emotions -- we poets...  AND.  As Dean says -- we have no choice about retiring.  And that's fine with me.  Wonderful words: don't even think about early retirement! --David

Dan, a great poem, and yes, love does strange things to everybody, especially to poets!

I think we can take some break and have some rest, but retiring, not a choice.

 AS... I read I thought about each verse and its message it sent to the reader....

 AS.. romantic poets I don't think we ever stop our emotions they must spill like a waterfall ..

 Even if there about loves passions or heartaches in life...

I think we all must go through  what waits for us..

 Now through the years I have learned!!! ...Sometimes its our fault what happens to our heart...

By being so trusting with a stranger ..

A leap of faith is hard after so much has happened to ones heart....I am not so trusting now....

 Hugs ~ She Whispers

Dan, a wonderful poem, your work has gotten deeper.  This is quite sorrowful, just to imagine never to write what the soul cries out, is horrible.  Tina
