Lost love gone

Pain found

An empty room

So many thoughts

So peaceful

So secret

A man scarred

Sits upon his bed

With a wand he writes

Lets it all hang out

A gift given

A way to express

He sits

Wonders about the future

Can he make it?

Show the world his inner self

Find love

Find happiness

Rejoice till life comes to an end

A Poetry-man writes

Witinesses the world

Explores himself and others around

Scared he is

Claims to know all

In essence knows nothing

Wants so much

Realizes he can't have it all

A Poetry-man writes

Tries to make sense of his world

Discovers many hidden feelings

Searches for words to explain

Desperation he feels

Angry words he speaks

A twisted tongue he talks with inner love he may have

Outer love he cannot see

A Poetry-man writes

Needs to experience it all

Discover him discover her

Loneliness he knows all so well

A monster he sees himself as

A Poetry-man wonders with words

Ponders ideas

Writes endlessly till time stands still.
