Sometimes The Poem Should Cry

Setting off concealed landmines
Lighting the night with mere lines
Fall apart, come together, ring the chimes
And weep in your poem sometimes

Crash in ruin, sprout wings and fly
Sweat bullets, be deligent, don't try
Confess sins, deny and comply
Yes, sometimes the poem should cry...

    Sometimes it is our only recourse - to write poetry to get the tears and the poison, which world events had clouded our minds with, out of our system. Good thought provoking poem, Tim. Love, Su (I have a new "handle" - thanks to your footle...lol)
