Poetry is succour of the poor
one’s who cherish satisfaction
from possessing nothing
but desire
as they describe emotions
love and what not
all in existence they have been missing

I withdraw from the arena of competition
they are more deserving
as to them it is more forthcoming
to me well not that deserving

I hereby relinquish my intense desire
one burning like an inferno within me

I am no poet in reality
but have seen poverty
have been scaled by misery
have returned back to that position
where laid royalty
I knew no poetry

Picked it up simply as a hobby
the clock of time was in my pocket
however could I have been
a Poe-yet

I don't believe it! Lovedly giving up poetry? I can see the giving up of competition, but have doubts of the whole of poetry.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

you well know lovedmely

Hi, Lovedly,
How does one relinquish intense desire, burning like an inferno? I also cannot imagine poetry being just your hobby. I agree with Geezer - I have my doubts! :)
Thank you!

I am the world's BESTEST LOSER ...
So I give in shall continue
now totally jobless and again But a will a
s strong as the hill
JACK went up with Jill
and made a lavishing kill
