a poet doesn’t fear

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

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

a poet doesn’t fear
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.

Used to be
someone who
Wrote a lot of lines that rhymed & were otherwise
possessed of a musical quality that did not
necessarily require
strings or drums in the
& was altogether too smart for words

Now a poet is
someone who
fucks about with the length
so as to make
the utterly
appear to have unplumbed depths of meaning
which I suppose
is at least moderately
Everyone's a poet ... only they just don't know it.
