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.
