Poet's Heart

A poem is just a lot of words
With feelings tucked inside
A sad verse usually written
Soon after someone's cried

Written with emotion
The pen becomes the tool
The poems of betrayal
Are written by the fool

Written in the silence
The poems about despair
Are written by the lonely
Who think that no one cares

Written in the Heavens
Without a passing glance
Are poems written of love
By those who've found romance

Written in the darkness
By a soul who's filled with tears
They tell us of their nightmares
As they're haunted by their fears

Wrapped in pure emotion
That tears the writer apart
A poem is the feelings
Found in the poet's heart
