Ishaisms, Poetry

Dry not, my pen

Dry not, my pen, nor bite the dust before my time,

you’re the nepenthe to my agonies, the breath to my life.

Dry not, my pen, nor leave me to fend for myself,

your nib is my sword, your ink my solitary help.

Dry not, my pen, nor grow weary of my imprint,

I am what I am, solely, by your dint.

Dry not, my pen, this world is cruel to me,

and only in your words, is my spirit set free.

Stay with me forever,

and even after that, and again,

I am all I write, so dry not,

dry not, my pen.

  1. A sad day for sure….if your pen ever does go dry! I long to read your poetry! You inspire and enlighten your readers! Sending positive thoughts and a never-ending supply of virtual, MAGICAL ink….. enough to last you a lifetime! πŸ’™

  2. Loved it and the refrain well executed. I am all I write is such a beautiful statement, though we are much more, with our thoughts that we don’t get to express or are simply ineffable. Dry not my rambling mind πŸ˜€

    1. That’s a thought that crossed my mind too when I wrote that line, but then I let the poetry take over and pen something as theatrically dramatic as that 😁 We both know your rambling will never dry haha, nor should it.

      1. Your theatrically dramatic is not very far from being profound, and I am not saying it for this post alone. As for me, I agree, this mind is filled with too many fluids(we both know which) to dry up anytime soon πŸ˜€

    1. Congratulations and thank you dear Sadia, for this honour, yet I must regretfully inform you that I don’t do award posts anymore.
      I’m well and hope you are too.
