Accidental Poet

The Inkwell of Your Heart

Within the depths of your heart

Your muse beckons you there

To reach deep into your own abyss

For you have much to share


Sometimes we try too hard

To force the words to show

But if we loosen up a bit

Just allow the words to flow


Like the sprinkle of rain

First one, then two and three

Soon you’ll be on a roll

A poem there you’ll see


The conveyor belt from your heart

Will deliver poetic gold

With faith of your Angel

Confidence to you they told


And there you have it

Your own poetic art

From your deepest abyss

The inkwell of your heart

    So true. I wish everybody wrote poetry so that we could look into their hearts.
    How sane it would be to read a lovers poetry before making a committment.

    Into my favourites with this one. Thank you.

          Yes well agreed A.P. - - our surrender to Muse will provide all the art of we bit believe and hence loosen up. Great read.

            Great poem , AP 🙂 I do like your poetry 🙂 I do believe words should flow ., I ajways think of you try too hard or overthink it ... then tgst simply gets in the way and doesn’t help . Write from the heart ..

            • Accidental Poet

              'From your deepest abyss'
              'from your treasured bliss'
              either way, if its true - to you
              then that poetry will flow
              as if plucked
              from floating Elysium clouds...
              a fun read
              liked the self-belief: contagious
              in a great way
