Poetry Unmasked

Written by: Nathan Leccese

Like children playing
   games at a park, poetry
   flows inside a heart.
Innocent passion, 
   overthrowing desire,
   distorting present.

Time lost within wind,
   growing weary tomorrow,
   lasting through the days.
Writing a lifestyle,
   difficult passion feeding,
   devouring soul.

Thirsting for lasting
    truth beyond outer limits.
Engaging lifeless
   thoughts from within self.
Ignoring present actions,
   imagination.

Lost within one’s self,
   letting reflections control.
Commanding image
   threaten existence
   looming in shadows awake.
Struggling poem.
