Poetry Ain't Words

From nothing it is to begin
Every little thing to trigger the mind for words
Almost like sleeping waiting for dreams
For only a self will words be heard

Presenting imagery imaginable
Desiring description to be penned
Beyond an innate self probable
Simply a matter of time... when

And the words itself were written
Painting a picture with words instill
A rather then to simply listen
You read and form an image to feel

In your mind it lives
No longer reading were words
For your mind believes
The words were simply heard

From nothing it is to begin
From a start to the end
A world no more to mean
Were it words poetry was to lend

    I liked the line about Evey little thing triggers the mind for words. Wow that is what happens to me, I will be doing everyday things land boom have to stop and write. Good job.
