Passionate Poet

where this poet finds passion for poetry

"The Passionate Poet"

Oh passionate poet, how do you do it?

How can you have so much passion, by the way, what is your passion?

My passion is everything I desire, everything I long for…

Everything I set my eyes on with love and is beyond my reach.

You see, if I had it all, I would have no desire, all I would want I would have

so I would hopefully be delighting in it.

The passion I write is about what I haven’t delighted in, or haven’t delighted in enough.

God’s gift to me, then God’s torture, which is also a gift, when seen from a poetic love.

Unrequited, unseen, undesired, unaccepted, are all my muses.

You see, a poet’s love is never in the hand, but always in the pen.
