To the poem before this (A poem by Phanuel Ayelum)

I sat in my seat;

Amidst a brainstorm-

The seemingly perfect blog post at the time struck me,

But it’s alteration is of the norm.

Not a new phenomenon-

This happens quite often;

One idea when my thoughts make out with words

And another when my hand kisses paper to pen..

It often leaves me wondering;

If I always share what’s on my mind

Or if it falls victim before the hands of alteration

While my initial thought is left behind…

If my words say-

What I intend for them to mean,

Or if they are only a fabricated illusion

Of the mind behind the screen..

If this poem was my initial idea-

If this was my initial thought;

Or if I lost it all in a cloud of words

In the perfection I long sought…

Dear poem before this;

I wish to have you rewritten,

Glowing in your craft-

Unraveled and unforgotten…

I wish to feel your originality;

Caress your nakedness,

Share an appreciation for truth

Embedded in your poetic grace..

I wish to feel your substance;

Recognize your narrative.

Listen to your echos of silence

And all you have to give….

Dear poem before this;

If we ever do get the chance to reconnect,

I want you to recognize that you weren’t neglected-

You only fell victim of the blogger effect!

By: Phanuel Ayelum.

Here’s yet another poem on some of my everyday experiences in the blogging world.

I call this one “The blogger effect” Very often, my “blueprint ideas” for a piece of writing, look nothing like what I end up with πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚…

To be honest, I’m not even so sure this poem is what I thought it should be!!!

Nonetheless, I hope you love it…
