The Poetry In Me

You brought out the poetry in me

When the block built

For writers who have blocks

Became my chill spot for months.

You brought out words

Like sledges

To knock the blocks barring my flow of juices

And let poetry pour out.


The thoughts of you ignite

Flames I wish I could use to light up your darkness

To burn your broken bridges

And build you new ones

Flames that could heat up the

Cold shoulders

You shrug at me,

Flames that could warm your heart

And melt the igloos you have inside

So the Eskimos would have no place to reside,

So you can breathe easily

So you can feel lighter

With all the heavy weight lifted from your scale…


…I’d remove your scales,

Expose the softness it held captive,

Close my eyes

And touch the new revelation

Like blinds

Reading words they’ll never see.

I want you to be scale-less

The hardness of it

Hardens against me

And deprive me of the glory to behold beneath it all.


Let me be your scale

I want to be your scale

Your exoskeleton

Your shield you take to war,

The guards you impose

Are not fond of me…

…Tear down your barriers

And bring out the poetry in me
