The Last Poem (From A Poet)

The last words written on the page

My heart sinks, full of rage

For the pen shall never touch paper again

I can’t remember when I started, that’s how long it’s been

It has become a part of me

Now that’s only who I used to be

I am a poet no more

I reached my height, now I hit the floor

So I quit with a very heavy heart

Hoping someday I will get a new start

But that won’t be anytime soon

My career is long past noon

It is the setting sun

My career has ended, it is done
