Tonight I Read Books by Sad Poets and I Feel Better Because They Feel What I Feel

The poets I read

are depressed

this is why I read them

they understand me

and I understand them

they take time to talk about it

they speak for me

We are all poets

as we put our pen to paper

yes, we become poets then

and the next step is put

our poems into a book

for others to read who are

going through the same sorrows

The words from poets

make us feel understood

and no longer alone

Praise to the poets who are brave

enough to share their feelings

Dear poets

you helped me

make it through tonight

Please keep writing and sharing

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
