The Poet Debates Within Himself the Words and Their Fast Forming Letters of These His Writes?

Alone and sitting against an old wooden soapbox, in a damp and dingy alleyway the homeless man continuously pounds away, until the battery slowly dies on this new gadget, he has found.

These Are They Not, Mine Words?

Sometimes I am amazed by the words

Where do they come from, thin air?

Or from the other side, of the Oceans of

Lost Emotions and the Seas of Salty Fallen Tears

They grow from my thoughts

And then they take on a life of their very own

Where is the creator of these words?

Where do they come from?

Placed into rows, sentences, and then phrases

Do they give any foresight, insight, or are they just

Hindsight’s or the whisperings, of an old fool?

The single most intriguing thing; to me, is

I am almost positive, it is not me

Why is it I don’t know where it is

Or why they do come to me?

An ideal; of my making?

Did I not write them, type them?

Did I not mold, and shape them?

But, yet did I, create them?

Could I ever, claim them as mine?

When I can’t define their spawning

Yet, it is I that has developed them, No?

That will claim them, for they have touched me and I them

Like a lover in a dream they amuse me,

They tease me, please me, and

Some times make they me cry

And then chuckle, or at least smile, and

Then I begin to think and dream as before

Before I was unable to use them

For to retain your love and them

Before I lost them and then you

A thought by Sinbad the Sailor Man

I have never been called a poet yet, out side of my workshop group. Only by mine own hands and mouth Have I claimed to be or try to be one.Thanks for those endearing words Priyanka B. Donnie/Sinbad

It is scary how it sneaks upon me some times as if some one is whispering in my ear and no one else can hear It, as it does but I have been overcome by the whisperings now and accustomed to their musings. Whether it is I myself or some other spirit remains to be seen and/or detected. Donnie/Sinbad
