Who What When Where Why

Who causes my heart to sing
lets me breath
causes my soul to fly free
sees the parts not previously seen
a safe place 
no judgements
the me I thought only I could see

What was I before you
but a place with empty dreams
tears wept in quiet rooms
no visitors crossed my door
I stood in darkness
yet my feet never touched the floor

When do we know we exist
is it our words spread on a pure white sheet
laughter made without our lips
hearts opened 
leaps of faith
wandering through imaginary halls
flying along windswept fields
strings attached to other souls
somehow connected to all
no longer just a single mind
looking forward not left behind

Where this road leads
I may never know
The path goes too and froe
I gladly follow
there are people to meet
other words on other sheets
that's why I choose to read and read
my mind expands beyond the here
People who are far are the ones that are near
Words capture essence
Like the scent of fresh cut grass
evoking emotions from present and past

Why you may wonder
Unless you're like me
interconnected with Poetry

    Those who have had this feeling can't describe it and those that haven't don't understand it. I love the way you connect yourself with writing and how much it deeply affects you. Traveling "beyond the here" is as good a reason as any to read and read... stellar job!
