    Written Cliché

    How daunting is the empty page
    but no worse than hearing cliché.
    How fearsome is the critique
    that tears the poem apart like
    your words are not part of you.

    You struggle, fight and enslave
    yourself to getting the words out.
    On a page making it real,
    your thoughts are validated,
    and now your life has meaning.

    It does not matter if others do not see
    the answer is there for you alone.
    Per chance others may
    understand and find a boon there
    answering their struggles.

    Yet who has the right to boast cliché
    when no one owns the usage of language?
    I said; You said. Does that make me king
    of the hill for being the first to say?
    I just may dare to cliché.

    i like the style you write with. its almost conversational, like intellectual small talk. personally i dont like cliches, especially in writing. there are so many ways to put words together to mean the same thing...i avoid it at all costs.

    Thank You all for your comments..... I don't know what to say except I have been accused of clichéing in the past and I really could not see it. For me being accused of using a cliché is akin to plagerism. And that is just something I do not do. I mean god I don't read poetry anywhere else but here and does it look like I copy anyone else's style or word usage here? I think not ... I think we are all unique individuals. Our words all have something different to say. That is my point of view and I am sticking to it!

    Love Ya's

    AWESOME write MYSTY - The quoted above really epitomizes poetry for me... Like I wrote in my essay I Picked My Poison - it is interesting to see how poetry affects others and how your words can indeed be a cure of sorts in the process. Very nice and awesomely inspirational write MYSTY - thanx for sharing.
