A Poets Guise

Within poetry is found many a guise
See poetry has brought wars to rise

Within the breath of Nostradamus tales
Quatrain after Quatrain of future spells

Throughout time lovers have parted
As poet’s tell of the broken hearted

Poet’s write of the glory as well as the plight
Another young boy fell on the battlefield tonight

Though out every Empire, race and creed
A poet’s pen was there to bleed

Tales of the future and tales of the past
Or perhaps making this moment last

There are no boundaries to a poet’s heart
As they ask of the world, “Please have a part”

Through the twisted tales of forbidden romance
‘Tis the poet who offers the reader a glance

Into the world that they could never see
Through my crystal ball come dance with me

The blood from my heart pours out through my pen
For I am a poet and this is my only sin
