A Poetic Caress

I write of things that are real and yet so hard to express. And encourage hearts to feel with a poetic caress. My pen interrogates pain exposing the hidden dirt. And redefines what is sane trying to explain the hurt. My poems capture feelings from first breath to death's embrace. And shattering glass ceilings examine pride and disgrace. My words reach out to a few going beyond expected norms. And challenge their point of view through rhyme or established forms. My muse supercedes all bounds exhuming dead dreams and fears. And my fragmented heart pounds dissecting anguish and tears. My soul pools in hurting hearts as it leaks upon the page. And anxiety departs from the heart of this old sage.
