Poem: Writer’s Gap (Part II)

So you’ve got the passion!
Insomnia because of writing!

You need the patience!
Longer it brews, more aromatic it goes!

When perseverance plays the part!
Kicking and walking with basket of denial!

Pray to God to unclog the passage!
Time’s running out; waits for no one!

Essential part of a writing process!
Like making love to flower a relationship!

Blame, hate, torture and discriminate!
Press the calm button to face reality!

Individuality that counts!
I spell impeccably during Great Depression!

Bestsellers produce two-three books yearly!
May or may not be the GAP’s slave!

If bestsellers engage ghost writers!
The latter will suffer no wording’s block!

They’re the unseen under the ray of literary world!
Blessed for I am mortal in the realm of immortality!

Dear Gems,

Please stay tune for more poems! It’s weekend and I’m setting the bar higher! Love you all!

Poem: Writer’s Gap (Part I)

Boycott GAP to loosen the gap!
Wear GAP to kill creativity!

Clear the blockage of facet!
Halving cerebral like peaches pie!

Fingers typing lollapalooza!
Split-ends hair takes no pity!

What a ridiculous thought!
The effect of rejection letters!

Hard copies in your mailbox!
The editor said to you!

‘Pass the first submission
kick out in round two deliberation!’

So my work is a pain!
Then why should you write back!

Soft copies inside electronic inbox!
Unless you print it! Why bother!

Collection for your grand-children!
Suckling, discouraging rejections!

Better still! Recycle! Delete!
Feed the sewage underground!
