Messed Up Jester Revealed!

by closetpoetjester


I've had a brief encounter here
With passion, words and rhyme
But this affair is over so
I write for one last time

I've learnt so much in six short weeks
Improving every day
Before I go there's just a few
Choice words I'd like to say

When passion grabs you by the throat
And squeezes you with might
You compromise a lot of things
Which isn't always right

I can't do things in halves cos'
I'm an ALL or NOTHING girl
But passion's taken over and
Its left me in a whirl

I'm torn between my family
And writing all day long
So that's why I must end it
To continue would be wrong

I'd like to thank the friends I've met
I hope you understand
But I must go for quite sometime
To leave my rhyming land

I've really loved my time here
With some precious friendships made
Reviewing, writing, always learning
Wish I could have stayed

But when I weigh the two things up
My loved ones they come first
And nothing's worth the guilt I feel
As mums go, I'm the worst!

You've heard within my poetry
I'm trading off the things
That I'm inspired to write about
No happiness that brings

So there's no point in writing now,
If I can't compromise
When passion goes right off the rails
It just turns into lies

There's jealousy within the ranks
I feel it burn my soul
The hours I spend on writing now
Are digging me a hole

A hole that I will fall in soon
A hole that just gets bigger
I'm writing with a smoking gun
About to pull the trigger!

I need to be a mummy first
A writer second now
But "mummy's job" takes all my time
So I just don't see how

You can't have cake and eat it too
You just can't have it all
Well here I sit just contemplating
When I'm going to fall

So writing has to take a break
My poet's heart must mend
I say good bye to one and all
To every fan and friend

I hope I can return real soon
Cos' writing's part of me
I'm going to miss each one of my
Extended family

To ArtGal, Kathryn, Curt and Pea
To Brooklyn and SweetLinda
To Shirley B, MissMerri, GRAVI
percyjack, Belinda

To Thesis, Razz and RebelRose
To Alvin, Valkarie
To adewpearl, patmedium
MizKat, SamanthaD

To Ankh, Melyuki, Healing muse
To Oatmeal, Nanette Mary
To winsome, jeslfaf, harleybrat
sierra scribbler, fairy

I couldn't name you all in rhyme
There's some I have forgotten
So if you didn't get a mention
Please don't think I'm rotten!

I've idolised my great time here
Your praise and all my glory
I truly wish I'm back real soon
With my old friend FAN STORY!

This realisation was made over the last few days and as a result this all tumbled out a couple of hours ago.....

PS Yes the pic is me ... I felt I needed to let people see the real me before I depart for awhile...
