My muse is full of sadness and of grief
My lonely company and some releif.
For only visiting in ruth she comes
And beats her verses as sounding drums.
I wonder how many poems are written in our need for peace and resolution in times of grief. The human condition is so vulnerable. I like your verses here.
I find that I feel most poetic when I am sad... it is a little strange.
I have written my best poetry when I am melancholy - it is odd, that some of our finest work comes out of lonliness or vulnerability. You are the first person I've known who admits this, too.
Yep, I admit it. The melancholy mood brings it out. I think this is common because I have read more sad poetry than happy poetry.
The three biggest inspirations in poetry are love, anger, and sadness. Poems of love have the potential to be sappy, therefore worthless to all but the author. Angery poetry comes acrosss as spiteful, and bitter, at best a fool's rant.The most captivating and inspiring prose is born of sadness. In greif we find hope.Reality is, no one wants to write when they're in a good mood. We'd rather go out and do something.
The small amount of poem writing I do comes when I am feeling very silly - of course that is most of the time. ec
I think that silly poetry is some of the best to read if you are in a melancholy mood. Thanks! I do appreciate the silly ones.
