O excellent poets here ... you all fly above

fly above my dark/dull
bald skull
it's now difficult
but to cull

old age devours us
but surely

your poetry levels
beyond where eagles
fly galore
by composing like you
I dare not bore
else for my aging malady
there is no cure

I tell every one
I am a bore
they can now only smell
my words
a poet I am of lure
I don't conceal myself
as I am
no poet
any more
or am I still
do tell
But except him!!!
who will the cat bell

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


you are no bore
And you're poetry
(Of this I'm sure)
most others
Do adore

In old age
like beggars.. moderna today ..
all poets seek arms
not alms
to hold out that they are human
clap, clap!

We all must learn
to laugh at ourselves first
then alone we can attain salvation
if there is a need to

so at the zenith of time
when all are asleep
don't weep
hold your horses yourself and smile
say how happy
am I today
this humour will also pass away
as does old age

So many poets here must know
we all are on an equal footing
some may be a step ahead
some forward looking
you help my narcissism
by your lovely poetic dialogue

You alone pass
a universal message
what I wanted to
but now I can only thank you
my salutes
O poet to you!

It does you no justice. Interesting free verse and you know it.

W. H. Snow

A poet is a nightingale, who sits in darkness and sings to cheer its own solitude with sweet sounds. Percy Bysshe Shelley
