Poem: Poetry Addiction, by Carolyne M. Acen

Z for short.

“Passion and pain are a poet’s portfolio. When a poet loses his words, he’s also lost his voice.”

By Carolyne M. Acen, spoken word poetry blogger

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

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.
