“A couple years ago I began using poetry to get the pain of failing in my writing out. It was a way to help process it and move on. As this year grows I find it’s time for a new poem as a way to catch up.”
A True Writing Story
My story edits came
An email of inimitable nightmare
I realise I bring writing to shame
There are red marks everywhere
The editor hates almost every word
They attacked every paragraph
My stomach hurts and my visions blurred
How do I survive this grammatical wrath
My heart breaks in two
I feel my dream beginning to rot
Tears of despair are flowing too
Maybe I should bin the bloody lot
Why did my tale get so much hate
I wrote it with all my heart
Maybe it’s not too late
Perhaps I can even restart
I mean my sleuth is just magic
Her mysteries are nail-biting
What makes it tragic
Is my useless writing
I disappointed my muse
Because you hated my tale
You blew a punctuational fuse
And caused me to fail
So, I had to walk away
To grow until my doubts recede
That was the only way
I could fight back and succeed
Now I sit and smile
As I regale in my sleuth’s pleasure
Come with us a while
