Writer’s Responses

I wait and I wait, for that ringing bell

To see who’s eyes, on my writing has fell

Not like the cat who is announced to their fear

So that they may scurry, run right out of here


But alas it’s no warning, but a cry just to see

Who has enjoyed my work, and perhaps still likes me

A pathetic response, one I can scarcely doubt

But one which is craven, does life exist without?


Ah yes this may be, whether I admit it or not

But am I really this fearful, inebriated sot?

Not really, for I haven’t time to live in this fright

I’ve also got this overwhelming compulsion to write.

About Barbara Blackcinder

I am a poet/writer with a need for words. There are so many out there that I haven't used yet. They define all reality and mine when you read those from me.

    Hopefully if you ever get any criticism, it has the same effect! You are a writer, in your soul…as such, I imagine you HAVE to write, anyhow. ;oP

  2. Sage advice, Barb—even if the weakness of desiring praise comes knocking, ignore it and keep writing 🙂
