a poet doesn’t fear

a poet doesn’t fear
blindness
since darkness was and is
an unwavering companion

a poet doesn’t fear
abandonment
take a slice of me when you go
and i will write myself better

a poet doesn’t fear
deafness
since silence has carried him
through countless metallic archways of night

no it is not these things –
a poet fears only
that his heart will go out
still full of ink

A person who writes poetry. The archaic term for a female poet is "poetess", but due to some feminists concidering the term sexist, "poetess" isn't used much now.

Also known as a bard (straight from the Gaelic "bàrd"), or troubador(from Latin and French), and especially known as these things in the Midieval Era.
'S e bàrd a th'annam (It is a poet that I am).
