Poetry is the New Blog Post – Read & Comment & Help me Grow as a Writer

Hey there,

Sometimes I write.
I decided to try my hand at it this morning, inspired by the great loss that is Leonard Cohen.
Let me know what you think (it’s a work in progress) in the comments below. And after you’re done reading, sit in silence and let this playlist run through. The loss of Cohen to music and to poetry and art as a whole is a great one.

I have known pain.
Felt its grip on my spirit
Manipulating, crushing, laughing
Leaving me exposed and vulnerable

I have known pain.
Felt its grip on my body
Stealing, destroying, breaking
Leaving me damaged and lost

I have known pain.
Felt its grip on my heart
Lying, cheating, misleading
Leaving me crushed and cold

I have known pain.
Felt its grip on my soul
Numbing, defeating, stultifying
Leaving me angered and alone

 
Pain has known me –
Felt the heel of my boot.

What do you think? I haven’t written poetry in years and years and years!
