Poetry (A Spiritual Release)

In less than a year, hundreds of poems have poured out of me.
I thought I'd drown in my tears, but I began to swim in poetry.

When the ink touches the pad I'm so glad to feel the spiritual release.
I address the worry and stress which brings me emotional peace.

As the couplets formulate, I escape into a world that is all mine.
Like a bomb ready to detonate, I try and be an explosive Poetic Einstein!

My mind explores, opening unknown doors, which other's may find very bizarre.
Self-confessed, a poet possessed, and from the Heaven's came a fallen star.

A dent in the earth, A poet rebirth, and the speed of my pen will only increase.
So the poetry in me, emerges from obscurity, demanding my spiritual release!



*Written for Constance contest "What is my theme"
My theme is "Spiritual Strength" (which is in my poetry)
