Poetry Addiction

I am a logophile; a poetic junkie with a

peculiar addiction.

High on poetry, slurring words like a lunatic.

Drugged by techniques, swooned into emotion

by this creative craving curse.

I bow to the will of this idolized ink, let my pen

stroke my soul into a living rage and bleed my

thoughts on paper.

My elation is the rush of creation; words roam

around freely.

Inadequate verbal emotion makes me weak

and renders me useless.

Thirsty and breathless, i lurch along canvas

dumping the shards of experience sealed in

suitcases of my vocabulary.

The creative fire in me burns.

Keeps me up all night, wakes me at first light.

I write with a frenzy-my Sentences combined

describe my written scribe

I coax phrases to render them bold; weave

moments in line and verse, wield my whimsical

pen with a theatrical flourish

I craft words so all may waltz; floor the stage with

my well enunciated dictionary- tap the mic, seize

the moment and hope to God that my fiery

inspiration takes hold.

I am a drunk poetess mingling in the presence of

Author: AfroetryC

I am an African woman and a mother to a precious little angel. I love to use the term "Afro-floetic Queen" mostly to describe my poetry and my roots. I love poetry...art, soul music and inspirational bits of knowledge to offer advice and counseling to those who need it. I can be very witty, straight forward but fun. Ha. ha... A colorful perception of the world - expressed in my poetry. I want to inspire people with my Poetry...give them hope, while also advising them. Life is a learning process and i am happy when one of my pieces directly affects or inspires one of my readers. Let's take a detour around experience, and let me fill your minds with sweet poetic juices.... Note: Just changed my user name from FloetryC to AfroetryC because the latter is more personal and describes my Spoken Word Poetry better.
