Day 7 …. Dear Poetry

Dear Poetry. I’m sorry I’ve been gone so long. Please let me explain. It wasn’t you it was me. I need to take leave from the ocean of words. Dry off my pen & pad. And place them down. Pause from writing in my sleep. Dreaming weeping screaming poetry. Poetry. We’ve been through a lot dear friend. You were my journal my invisble friend. The one that knew it all & none of it. The one that opened my soul. I needed to embrace what was coming. 20 fingers. 20 toes. I hope you can forgive me. Dear poetry.

I had to put my sleep to good used. Late night feds early morning nappy changes. I wouldn’t have the time to place words into beautiful formations. When my soul would suddenly be interrupted by double cries. Double the bottles. Double dummies. My babies, poetry.

Born from two poetic beings. Intertwined in loves dance. They call for me. The same way you call for my soul. But she couldn’t answer. Couldn’t listen to your voicemails. But I heard one Poetry. With you screaming & accusing me of having another. Acting like I had forgotten the times you got me through. Poetry how could you? How could you think I could replace the one thing that made me feel like, Me poetry. I tried once to put your muse of anger and pain into something. But I don’t have anymore. I don't want to write with anguish and have my pen leak tears. And leave my pages bleeding love. And screaming for more. I don’t know if I have anymore. I have pain I have the anger and anguish. I just don’t know if I want to write about it. Who would want to read it? Dear Diary.

Sincerely Yours

Isha A Poet xx
