Eternal Glory

The loneliness of

the writer who only has

his words for company,

every day he writes them down

until the flow in harmony.

A vacant look may

settle upon his face

as he retreats into

his inner space.

Where he trawls his mind

for new inspiration

and when once found

fills his soul with

a soothing sensation.

What he writes

he would love to share

but being his worse critic

he doesn’t dare.

Left upon a shelf

to gather dust

like a new bicycle

left outside to rust,

are pages upon pages

of incredible stories

that lay waiting

to be discovered

after he is sent to his eternal glory.

  1. I Love your writings, words are very important. I hear, see and feel your words. They should not sit on a shelf. They will touch a persons heart that you may not ever know. But they will.
